It's a Small World

Welcome!  Today I want to share with you some layouts I created using Bo Bunny Candy Lane Collection from FotoBella.

When I saw the pinks in this paper line, I knew it would be perfect for some of the photos from Disneyland.  I have to say if you have never been to see the Christmas lights it is really awesome. It is worth the expensive ticket to get into the park.

Family Holiday Layout

Hello, it's Apryl with FotoBella's Design Team!  With the Christmas season upon us, I've been busy scrapbooking holiday photos.  Today's layout is made with We R Memory Keepers North Pole I Want It All Bundle from  The bundles are fabulous and this one will not disappoint.  FotoBella bundles have a TON of paper in them, not to mention all the embellishment goodies that go along with it.  

Don't you just love these script alpha stickers?  They make such stunning titles.  And of course I had to break out the Stickles and add some sparkle!  What's a holiday layout with a little glitter?!?

I got a lot more photos on this page by using my circle stamp to crop out the backgrounds of the photos and draw the focus to our faces.  

Happy Holidays everyone!  Hope they are full of your own fun family times!

Have a fabulous day!

Hannah's Happy Happy So Very Lovely Good Day Layout

Every time I picked up the Vivienne "I want it All!" Bundle from FotoBella, I found that it made me feel happy!  So I thought, "what better paper to use for this special photo of a very special little girl, than Vivienne, by Basic Grey?"  I found that it reflected perfectly the mood of this particular day, Hannah's special day spent camping with her Dad.

The  pretty colors of patterned paper go with almost any event you want to document, and the textures of the various chipboard pieces. acetate overlays, and resin flowers will add lots of dimension to your project.  

I just built  the "flower frame" around the photo image, using all the wonderful embellishments that come with the 
Vivienne I want it All! Bundle

Everything you could possibly want for a beautiful scrapbook layout is here! Vivienne's Bundle includes chipboard pieces, acetate overlays, resin flowers, die cuts and transparencies, and they all coordinate beautifully!

I can almost feel the fresh air, smell the flowers, and hear the birds chirping as it takes us back to that summer day so long ago...Hannah's happy happy, so very lovely good day!

Vivienne I want it all Bundle, makes any project a breeze, and is a great way to document your own 
"Happy Happy So Very Lovely Good Day"!

Happy Creating!

Bo Bunny Altitude Card With A View Tutorial

     Drea here with a card tutorial using Bo Bunny's beautiful new Altitude I Want It All Bundle from FotoBella. I love the rustic charm of this collection, and decided to bring the doors to life in this winter card that can be used for so many occasions.

Supplies from Bundle:                                                           Tools:
12 x 12 Collection Pack                                                            Sewing Machine
Ephemera Pack                                                                          Tim Holtz Paper Distresser

Other Supplies:
2 Brown Brads
Distress Ink (Walnut Stain)
Distress Embossing Powder (Vintage Photo)
String or Twine
Dark Brown Cardstock

1. Using the Rustic paper that comes in the 12 x 12 Collection Pack, cut out the doors leaving 1/2" around the sides, and crease along the side edges. Cut the same doors without the 1/2" edge from the other sheet of paper, since the pack comes with two sheets each. This will be for the inside.

2. Cut along the center of both sets of doors and ink around the edges using Distress Ink (Walnut Stain).

3. Cut the snowy mountain image from the top of the "Flurry" paper, leaving 1/4" along the bottom. I left a smaller amount, but it still worked. Apply the brown scallop sticker, which also comes in the collection pack, to the top of your image.

4. Cut two strips of the wood "Blizzard" paper about 1/2" wide, and the same length as your mountain image. Use the same ink along the edges, and glue to the top and bottom of your image, slightly overlapping the bottom edge and scallop border.

5. Fold the creases back on the door fronts, and glue to the back of the mountain image. Attach your brads to the fronts, using Distress Embossing Powder (Vintage Photo) on them, for added texture and rust. Tie some string or twine to one of the brads, and wrap around the other to keep your doors closed.

6. Cut a 6" x 6" card out of dark brown cardstock. Cut the same size from the turquoise lined paper that comes in the Ephemera pack, and distress the edges using the Tim Holtz Paper Distresser. Glue to your card and sew around the edges using dark brown thread. Then cut a smaller square from the snowflake "Bundled" paper, distressing the edges again. Add a ribbon to the middle and sew around the edges. 

7. Open your doors and glue the other set of doors to the back, to cover the backs of the brads, and glue to the center of your card. Here is your inside view!

Thanks for looking, and have a great day!

Bo Bunny Candy Cane Lane Layout

Hello Everyone. Today I wanted share with you a layout I did using the Bo Bunny Candy Lane Collection from FotoBella.

My poor girls.  We had an expected trip to see Santa.  He happened to be at the National Tree at the same time we were and it had already been a long day.  It was raining outside and they really just wanted to go inside for a little while.  Jalyn was a little more of a troop than Jaleesa, but we saw Santa and got to tell him what we wanted for Christmas.
