Bo Bunny Garden Journal "Diamond Fold" Card (Tutorial)

Hi Everybody!  ReNae here, with the FotoBella Design Team!
Today for our tutorial, I am sharing an old favorite,
The Diamond Fold Card!
And what is the perfect collection to use for
the Diamond Fold Card?
The Bo Bunny Garden Journal Bundle!
Here are all the supplies you will need!  Patterned paper, chipboard stickers, ribbon, tape runner, a marking pencil, and a scoring board!
Cut a piece of patterned paper or heavy card stock at 4" x 12"
Score at 2" 
Score also at 10"
Make a tiny ink mark at 6" on both top and bottom of paper.
This will be the mark for your fold.
Using the ink mark as your guide, fold the paper down as shown.
Do the exact same thing on the other side. 
Burnish fold. Open back up and turn paper 180 degrees.
Repeat steps.
You should have created these folds.
Unfold paper again. Hold strip vertically and pinch corners together where the score lines intersect, as shown.

Repeat for the other side.  
Your card will look like this. 

Turn it over, and this is what the back should look like! 
Using contrasting paper, cut a background piece at  2 1/8 x 4 1/4

Cut the square for the front of the card at 2 1/2 " all sides
For the side triangles, cut another square at 2 1/2 and cut it horizontally down the center.  
You will use these pieces to decorate the sides of the card.
Trim off 1/8 inch from the long side...
so it fits inside the card perfectly!
Adhere your triangles with tape runner 
Adhere the square to the top of the card, and select two flower images from the chipboard stickers pack.
Select the "Life is Beautiful" chipboard piece and tap it with your stamp buddy or talcum powder to remove sticky backing. 
 Do not apply powder where you adhere chipboard to card!
Your card should look like this!
Now it's time to tie the ribbon!
The recipient unties the bow, to reveal a lovely card!
You can embellish as much or as little as you wish...these cards are easy and fun, and take very little time to make!  I hope you'll try making one with the Bo Bunny Garden Journal Collection!  

Happy Creating!

I AM Loved Mother's Day Card

Mother's Day is coming up!
Nothing speaks louder then a handmade card filled with love and appreciation.
My new I AM Collection by Simple Stories was the perfect selection to this card for my Mom.

It had all the words I wanted to say, already printed on the paper, stickers and chipboard!
I added some distress ink for color, and colored in a few spots on the paper with matching markers.

The colors are a perfect mix of brights and pastels, and come with so many great embellishments!

Old Photo Layout

Hello, Today I'm sharing a layout I did using the Basic Grey Prism Bundle from FotoBella.  I found this picture when I was going through some old photos of my mom's.  I just love this photo.  I love that it shows my sister and I with my mom.  I love that it shows us doing something that I now love to do with my girls.  I love that it shows the 80's.  The colors of this line are perfect for these older photos.  So much fun!

Have a beautiful day! Smiles, Jessica

Bo Bunny "Sweet" Card

Doesn't everyone love receiving a handmade card?  It's Apryl with FotoBella's Design Team and today I'm featuring a new card made with Bo Bunny Carnival I Want It All Bundle from  The card is fun and bright.  

I loved the cotton candy in this collection.  I fussy cut the cotton candy shape out it and added some Diamond stickles to the dark, shaded parts of the fluffy cotton candy cloud of goodness, to make it look even more yummy!

Because I really wanted to call attention to the cotton candy and the "Sweet" sentiment I popped it up off the Marquee shape and outlined the starburst design with Stickles also.  

I didn't add any additional sentiment or title, since I'm not sure what event I'll need this card for yet.  But it could easily be used for a "Sweet Sixteen" themed card, "You're Sweet" or "Thank you" card.  That's the beauty of handmade cards, they can be customized to fit what you need it for!

Supplies used from the Carnival Bundle:  Side Show Paper, Cotton Candy Paper, Metal brads-Ephemera.

Have a fabulous day!

Prima Marketing Bedtime Story Mini Album - Thank you Claire!

We were so thrilled to get pictures of this wonderful mini album created by one of our favorite customers - Claire!

Claire used the Prima Marketing Bedtime Story Paper Bundle and some fussy cutting (since we were out of stock of the chipboard at the time) to create this mini album for a friend who recently had a baby boy. As you can imagine her friend was delighted.

Prima Marketing Bedtime Story Mini Album

Claire based her mini album on instructions from last year's FotoBella G45/365 membership.

Thank you so much Claire for sharing your talent and wonderful mini album with us!
