Bo Bunny Sweet Life Layout

     Drea here with another layout using Bo Bunny's Sweet Life I Want It All Bundle from FotoBella! I scrapped this photo of the flowers my sister sent me for my birthday, fussy cutting the flowers and mirror.

     I used a border punch around my floral paper, and painted the edges white, before adhering it to red cardstock. Then I layered and punched the yellow and pink papers that I got from the Ephemera. I inked the edges of the pink paper with the new Distress Ink (Abandoned Coral), and used gold embossing powder on the edges of the yellow paper. I gave the yellow paper a few sprays of Lindy's Stamp Gang (Gold Daubloons) and Distress Spray Stain (Antiqued Bronze). From the Ephemera I also used some yellow and pink bling, which I added to the punched edges and with my titlework. I did some stamping with the new Floral Stamps and on the message that was included with my flowers. I also stamped birthday and used the alpha stickers from the 12 x 12 Pack to spell delivery. Then I just scattered some Chipboard pieces and Buttons  around, tying it all up with the pink, sheer,  ribbon that also comes in the Ephemera.

Thanks for looking, and have a great day!

Artisan Style Mini Album

Today I'm sharing a quick mini album I put together.  I used the Graphic 45 Artisan Style Bundle from FotoBella. There are several great tutorials on you tube for making mini albums.  I used this one for my basic hinge design and modified as I wanted.

Have a beautiful day! Smiles, Jessica

Bo Bunny Sweet Life Title Tag Technique

     The new Bo Bunny Sweet Life I Want It All Bundle from FotoBella is so beautiful, full of butterflies and blossoms, and touches of glitter! I love how it looks with this old photo of my dad with some of his siblings!

     I started this page by masking the top right corner with some gesso and the new Tim Holtz Lace Stencil. For some sparkle, I added some glitter to the gesso as soon as I lifted my stencil. Make sure to wash your stencil right away too!

     The new Distress Ink (Abandoned Coral), which I used on some of my paper edges, really helps soften this page and give it a more vintage look. From the Ephemera, I used the book page, tearing and inking the edges with Distress Ink (Mustard Seed), the cream paper on the top left, and the ribbons on the title tag. I fussy-cut some of the flowers, and stamped some with the new Bo Bunny Floral stamp, adding Stickles to them for extra shine. Then I added a few of the new pink Petaloo Burlap Mini Flowers. For some more depth, I cut part of the large butterfly wing and curled it up, right under my floral cluster.

     Two of the tags were cut from paper, and I layered the smaller one underneath the Film Sticker. To pick up the gold in the framed Layered Chipboard butterfly, I added a sparkly gold brad. The banner with the 3 butterflies on it, also comes in the layered chipboard, and the other butterflies are from the Chipboard. To make the title tag, I simply masked it using the alpha stickers that come in the 12 x 12 Collection Pack. Before placing the stickers on your tag though, make sure to stick them onto your carpet or clothes first, so you don't have any problems when you lift your letters off. I used some artist's tape across the bottom of the first stripe, and masked "The" with Distress Ink (Tumbled Glass).

     Then I placed the tape along the top and bottom of the next stripe, and masked "Age Of" with Distress Ink (Broken China).

     To mask "Innocence" I used Distress Ink (Chipped Sapphire), and inked the rest of the tag with it. I highlighted "Innocence" with some  Stickles, and finished it off  with the sheer ribbons from the Ephemera.

Have a wonderful day!

Bo Bunny Sweet Life Card Tutorial

     I was so excited to use Bo Bunny's new Glitter Paste for the first time, with this card that I made using Bo Bunny's Sweet Life I Want It All Bundle from FotoBella! The colors and inspiration all came from this beautiful, chipboard, butterfly, which is probably my favorite piece from the whole bundle!

Supplies from Bundle:                                      Other Supplies:

12 X 12 Collection Pack                                 * Bo Bunny Floral Stamp 
Chipboard                                                       * Glitter Paste (Sugar)
Brads                                                               * Tim Holtz Stencil (Blossom)
Film Sticker                                                    * Petaloo Mini Burlap Flowers (Teal)
Ephemera                                                        * Distress Inks (Tumbled Glass, Peacock Feathers,
                                                                              Frayed Burlap, Gathered Twigs, Evergreen Bough,
                                                                              and Black Soot)
                                                                           * Black Embroidery Thread
                                                                           * Brown Cardstock


* Sewing Machine
* Blending Tool
* Tim Holtz Paper Distresser 
* Scissors


1. Cut card from brown cardstock at 5 3/4" X 8 1/4".  Cut 4 1/2" X 7 1/2" from "Inspire" paper. Center Blossom Stencil over the paper and use a blending tool to ink it with Distress Inks (Frayed Burlap, Gathered Twigs, and Evergreen Bough). 

2. Clean stencil and place it over your masking, matching up the pattern that you just inked. Now apply the Glitter Paste and remove stencil. 

3. Cut 5 1/2 " X 8" from the back of the "Dot" paper, and use the Paper Distresser around all the edges, along with the masked paper. Cut about a half inch from the ends of the Film Sticker and place along the distressed edges. Glue the sheer ribbon from the Ephemera to the back of the paper, right under the Film Sticker on the right. Stitch around the edges.

4. Glue the masked paper onto the blue paper, and adhere the center of the Film Sticker right over the masking. Sew the edges, which will ensure the sticker stays in place, and make sure to stitch through the ribbon. 

5. Stamp, ink, and fussy-cut some flowers with the Bo Bunny Floral Stamp. I inked mine with Distress Inks (Tumbled Glass, Peacock Feathers, and Frayed Burlap), and added some Glitter Paste to them. If you don't have the Floral stamp you can always fussy-cut some of the beautiful flowers from the papers. I didn't want the pink butterfly section of the film sticker to show, so I covered it with a stamped flower, and added the chipboard butterfly to it. I hand-stitched the antennae, and gave it a shabby chic look, by putting my knot in the front, and fraying the ends of the black embroidery thread. 

6. I curled the petals up on the flower in the bottom corner and attached the bling brad to the center. To create a loop from the ribbon, just fold it over to the left of the Film Sticker and add the square, fly brad.  Scatter some of the burlap flowers around the blossoms, and to finish it up, add your layers to the brown card, inking the edges with Black Soot Distress Ink. 

Thanks for your visit!

Circus Show Fun layout

Hello FotoBella fans, have you had a chance to check out the Bo Bunny Carnival I Want It All Bundle yet?  It really is fantastic!  Apryl with the Design Team here, sharing a circus themed layout with you today.  This layout features the "star" of our show, the baby of the family.  And of course, she LOVED her first Circus experience.   

I've got to say, the moment I say this red curtain patterned paper, I just had to use it as my layout background.  I cut the paper so that it looked like the red curtain was drawing open for the start of the show.  I layered it on top of the small star print paper, so that the stars peek through the red curtain.  If you look closely, you can see that the red curtain *SPARKLES*.  That's my Diamond Stickles at work.  I ran it up and down the paper, along the creases in the curtain image.  I LOVE the affect it gave the paper and overall layout.  

To embellish the page, I layered several of the tickets, the chipboard popcorn sticker, journal card and film strip that I cut from the film strip 12x12 pattern paper.  This Bo Bunny Carnival is really a fun collection with lots of possibilities.  Go to and add it to your scrapbook supply collection because I vote it as a MUST HAVE!

Have a fabulous day!

Artisan Style Layout- Create Love

I found this amazing picture of my Great Grandmother holding me when I was just a couple of weeks old.  I used the Graphic 45 Artisan Style Bundle from FotoBella.  The orange and greens in the photos go perfectly with this line.  There is a little tag towards the bottom that pulls out with my journaling.  It is just a few thoughts of my memories of her which were far too few.

Have a beautiful day! Smiles, Jessica
