Bo Bunny Aryia's Garden Layout

     Hello! Drea here with the FotoBella Design Team, and I'm back, as promised, with one of my Bo Bunny Aryia's Garden Tag's, shown on this layout created with Bo Bunny's Aryia's Garden I Want It All 12 X 12 Collection Bundle and Coordinating Double Dot Paper Bundle from

     I started by spritzing some of the "Delightful" paper with Worn Lipstick Distress Spray Stain. Once dry, I cut 1/8" around the edges and rounded the bottom corners with a punch. Then I used an Xacto knife to cut the roses on the bottom right, just enough to tuck in the "Poetry" wood paper colored with Brushed Corduroy and Walnut Stain Distress Inks. To mimic the tag, I applied Bo Bunny White Gesso to the edges, and when dry, machine-stitched it to the "Bashful" Double Dot Paper. 

     The Petaloo Mixed Textured Blossom, from my own stash, was originally ivory, and colored with Worn Lipstick Distress Spray Stain and Bubblegum Pink Ranger Dylusions Spray. I love the way the pink looks with the Harvest Orange Zinnia Bo Bunny Flower! I also added the Chipboard rose to the cluster, along with the Layered Chipboard banner topped with a Double Dot Citrus Brad, also on the tag.

     Speaking of the tag, I did deepen the color on top with Distress Crayons, using Picked Raspberry and Spiced Marmalade from Set #1, and Festive Berries from Set #2. 

         The Clear Stickers, besides spelling JOY on the tag, were also used as a border next to the orange Chipboard flower.

     I topped it all off with this shiny strip of vellum.

     Thanks for your visit, and stop by FotoBella to get your own Bo Bunny Aryia's Garden I Want It All 12 X 12 Collection Bundle!

Make A Splash Layout

Hello everyone, it's Jessica.
 Today I wanted to share a layout I did using the Bo Bunny Make a Splash Collection.  This collection is so much fun for your beach and pool layouts.  I think the penguins are so cute.  My favorite part are the clear sticker set.  I used them next to the chipboard penguin sticker.  They are super cute and a nice little added element to the layout.

Thanks for stopping by and looking.  Make sure you hop over the FotoBella website and check it out.

Bo Bunny Aryia's Garden 2 Pager

     Spring is finally in the air where I live, and Bo Bunny's Aryia's Garden I Want It All 12 X 12 Collection Bundle from FotoBella is full of beautiful florals and colors to document the season!  Drea here with the FotoBella Design Team featuring my HAPPY tag, on this 2 pager.

     To the front of the tag, I placed the glittery Bo Bunny Harvest Orange Zinnia, which inspired the drops of Sprinkled Sugar Stickles that I added to the roses from the Noteworthy that are behind the tag.

     Also behind the tag, is the journaling card that I cut from the front of the "Notes" paper, rounding off the top corners with a punch. Then I used a bigger punch along the the top corners of the "Iron" paper, and finished the edges with Bo Bunny White Gesso and machine-stitching. 


     I used the banner from the Stickers under the title, which I cut with my Cricut, using paper from the Ephemera, and inking the edges with Aged Mahogany Distress Ink.  Above the banner, I hand-stitched the twine, and added buttons, also from the Ephemera, to the ends after giving them a coat of White Gesso, for a shabby chic look. 

     The floral border along the bottom was fussy-cut, and glued to the bottom of my photos, backed with the back of the "Poetry"paper to look like a fence, and inked along the edges with Gathered Twigs and Brushed Corduroy Distress Inks. Then I added the date to the banner piece from the Noteworthy.

          From the Chipboard, is this wheelbarrow full of roses!

National Scrapbook Day with the FotoBella Design Team

Today we get to celebrate one of our most favorite days!
National Scrapbook Day!

Our creative FotoBella Design Team decided to inspire you today, with all projects based around the 'UPCYLE' theme. You know, to reuse, to repurpose things that are otherwise considered trash potentially, because they are no longer needed for their original purpose.

This idea also goes along with our current mood, as we just celebrated Earth Day.
It is always a great idea to recycle, reduce and reuse.
Here are a few scary statistics found on

  • 12 feet: The height of a wall from Los Angeles to New York City that could be made from tossed office paper every year.
  • 4.4 pounds: The amount of trash generated daily, on average, by every American. Packed in cubed feet it would be the height of the Leaning Tower of Pisa.
  • 300: Laps around the equator that could be made in paper and plastic cups, forks, and spoons disposed of annually.

Just think of all the scrapbook pages you could make with those supplies! (total heart eyes)

Now that I have your creative mind going,... here are the incredible upcycled projects from the team to inspire you even further:
