Prima Marketing French Riviera ATC's

     Hello FotoBella Fans! Have you tried any of the fabulous pastes from Prima Marketing? There's so many great textures and effects you can add to any project, and they clean up so easily! Drea here with the Design Team, and I made a set of ATC's with some Prima Marketing Patina Effect Paste and Rust Paste Camouflage Set, featuring some French Riviera Stamps and the Anchor and Shell Stencil from

     I started by coating some playing cards with Prima Marketing White Gesso, and then spraying with Broken China and Cracked Pistachio Distress Spray Stains. With a Dabbing Brush, I applied Patina Effect Paste to the Shell and Anchor Stencil, using all three colors from the set. Then I added sand to the bottom of  the shell and anchor cards, with Dusty from the Rust Paste Camouflage Set, and really love the results! 

          All of the stamping was done with Ranger's Jet Black Archival Ink, using the French Riviera 4 X 6 Cling and French Riviera #2 Stamps. I decided NOT to color my stamping, for a black and white effect with the ocean colors, except for a few touches on the card below, that I painted with Tarnished Brass Distress Spray Stain. Then I popped up some of the fussy cut pieces for some dimension. 

      The bubbles were created with the same stencil using white gesso, topped with a coat of Sprinkled Sugar Stickles for some sparkle.  

     Each card is backed with a piece of torn white cardstock, and the edges colored with Broken China and Cracked Pistachio Distress Inks. Finally, I hand-stitched the twine to the netting, that I recycled from some fruit. 

     Thanks for looking, and shop for these supplies and more!

Shine Bright Layout with Simple Stories Beautiful collection

Looking for a beautiful scrapbook collection?  Look no further than the Simple Stories Beautiful collection found at  Apryl with you today from the FotoBella Design Team to share a layout.  Creating numerous layouts for my brother's wedding photos has been effortless and all thanks to Simple Stories.

The gold accents and monochromatic colors with a splash of pastel is perfection with this cake cutting photo.  It doesn't take much to make the layout shine.  I added the pink marble paper behind the photo and the plaid strips as an accent against the primarily black background.

Isn't the gold just beautiful?  It really makes the layout shine!

Life is Beautiful with Simple Stories Beautiful collection

The Simple Stories Beautiful collection found at is full of design possibilities.  The papers and design elements are stunning.  With any collection I always find myself having to have everything, all the stickers, embellishments, ephemera, etc.  But sometimes all you need is just a few simple elements to showcase the beautiful photos that really should take center stage in the layout.

Apryl with you today sharing my latest project for the FotoBella Design Team.  When it came to designing this layout, I felt that the photos could stand on their own.

I chose a black background and used a Creative Memories tearing ruler to create the wavy edge.  I backed it with the black and white plaid for the bottom section of the page.  

In working with this layout, the "life is beautiful" chipboard sticker was the perfect fit.  I couldn't bring myself to add much more and take the eye away from the stunning photos of my brother's wedding reception.  In some cases, simple is better and Simple Stories Beautiful collection lives up to it's name in this regard.  Find all you need from this collection to showcase your beautiful photos at

Have a fabulous day!

A Tag Mini Album

Hello, Jessica here!  I have a tag mini album to share with you today.  I used Bo Bunny's On this Day Bundle.  I decided to create a tag for each month.  I have completed the first 5 monthly tags.  I kept them all relatively similar.  I used a lot of flowers and ribbons from my stash but there are so many in the shop that you can select from that are similar.   Flowers here and Ribbon here.

My plan is to add tags in between each month.  The first one would have a little summary of things that happened each month and then I can add as many I want with pictures after.  My hope is by the end of the year, I will have a nice little summary of the highlights of our year!

Thanks for stopping by!  Make sure you hop over to the shop and pick up this great bundle.

Say "I Do" layout with Simple Stories Beautiful

FotoBella fans!  Have you seen Simple Stories Beautiful collection?  It's beyond beautiful, and I couldn't believe how perfectly it matched by brother's wedding invitation and decor.  Apryl with the design team sharing with you today my layout with the wedding invitation and as you can see it's a match made in heaven.  

Including the wedding invitation in a layout is such a great idea for several reasons.  The first is that it's instant journaling; it includes the what, where, when, why and who of the layout.  

Beautiful wedding photos deserve a beautiful paper collection and Simple Stories Beautiful is an excellent choice. has the collections' goodies and you'll want them all! 

The embellishments have stunning gold accents that work wonderfully with black/white and muted pastels.
