Dream it with Bo Bunny Felicity

Hello friends, if you've been following my Bo Bunny Felicity projects you've seen just how versatile this collection is.  I've made a variety of cards and layouts.  Today I'm sharing a boy layout using the dark green colors in this collection as it's foundation.  I think it's ok to add some pink in a boy layout, don't you?  My son may not agree!  



The title is a Silhouette cut file by Kolette Hall.  I altered the words slightly from it's original design.  First, I have the words go all the way to the right edge of the page and trimmed the words to be flush with the edge.  Also, for the word "it", I used the negatives and cut them into squares to add a more masculine feel to the look of it.  


There are some elements from the Ephemera packet for embellishments.  I added a few stickers and jazzed them up with Platinum color Stickles.  I mean if I'm going to add pink, I'm going add some sparkle also ;-  The Stickles give the layout just enough "pop".  


Visit FotoBella.com to get your Bo Bunny Felicity collection so you can have as much fun designing projects with it as I have.  

Have a fabulous day!

Button Day Cards

     Happy National Button Day! Drea here with the Design Team, and I can't believe another year has already gone by since my post here, celebrating one of my favorite embellishments! I got into my late Grandma's button stash to create a couple of cards using some of my older Bundles. Pinterest is always full of great ideas, and inspired this cute, little, snowman family!


   
     The background was done with Hickory Smoke, Pumice Stone, and Weathered Wood Distress Inks spritzed with some water.  Then I used an old toothbrush to apply snow using White Linen Dylusions Paint. The actual snow texture, which I absolutely LOVE, was done with Prima Marketing's Snowflake Paste, used on the hills and the tree sticker applied with Bo Bunny's Palette Knife!



     The snowmen were made with 3 buttons, knotted at the eyes, with scraps of ribbons for the scarves. Then I cut the hats from black cardstock, coating them with Black Diamond Stickles, also used on the edges of the sentiment.


   
     This other card was made for my nephew, and again uses up some older Bundles, including Bo Bunny's Pop Quiz Papers with Black Soot Distress Ink applied to the edges.



     After printing the bus image onto white cardstock, I applied Glossy Accents to the windows, and Orange Peel Stickles to the lights. Black buttons make perfect wheels, atop the embossed music notes stamped with Ranger's Jet Black Archival Ink!



     Bo Bunny Bundles and Ephemera Packs almost always have buttons in them, including chipboard ones. Don't be afraid to mix up different collections like I did on this banner strung together with twine.

Yard Sale with Silhouette

I love my Silhouette CAMEO!

It has made crafting so fun, and easy!

So of course, planning for a yard sale, I knew my Silhouette would come in handy.

Easily design and lay out the words I wanted, in the size and font I wanted




Let the CAMEO do it's job, and cut!
Easily remove the letters and place centered and straight on the posterboard.


I made 4 signs, and got so many compliments from people who came to my yard sale. They said my signs were easy to see and easy to read!

Although, I should have made more for every street corner!!


Enjoy your day, and hop on over to FotoBella.com to grab Silhouette products

Holiday Gift Box

Hello everyone!
Jeri here with the FotoBella Design Team, and I have a custom Holiday gift wrap idea for you today.

I am working with the darling Cottage Life I Want It All Bundle by 49 and Market. It's a fun collection to use for Spring or Fall gardening crafts, however, I like to test myself with collections and see if I can create something opposite than what it looks like it's intended for.

 

Christmas is coming and I am mostly done with the gift part, now I am onto the gift wrap part. I pulled a few of the pieces out of the bundle to craft this gift box.


I covered an existing box with this red wood panel sheet, and inked the edges with the Aged Mahogany Tim Holtz Distress Ink. I crinkled this cute post card cut out and tied it on with jute. And of course, finished the gift box off with a red jingle bell and some paper flowers from the bundle.


I hope you have enjoyed this project and are inspired to create!

Beautiful Life with Bo Bunny Felicity

Hello, FotoBella friends, Apryl here with the FotoBella design team getting my hands messy with the Bo Bunny Felicity collection.  I had some fun with this layout, and dove right in the creating process with out really having a plan.  It took a fun direction and I'm happy with the results.  


I went through the Felicity collection, 12"x12" papers and the papers in the Ephemera pack.  I layered them up randomly and then sprizted them a couple of times with Heidi Swapp's color shine in Bronze and Turquoise.  


I then selected the musical note patterned paper to matte my photo with and put it all down on the 12x12 sheet of Felicity Always paper.  I placed that on top of the 12x12 Dreamer paper and tore away the edges at the corners and along the sides.  


Here's a closer look at some of the layering and where I tore some edges throughout the layout.  I ran brown ink along the paper edges and tears.  For the journaling, I cut out a piece from the 12x12 vellum sheet, tucking that in above the photo.  The Bo Bunny Felicity collection has some fun whimsical pieces, find it all at FotoBella.com  

Have a fabulous day!

Halloween Art Journal Spread

Happy Halloween from all of us at FotoBella

     Drea here with the Design Team, and I created this spooky spread in my art journal with some mixed media done on a painted background using Dylusions Paints.



     With my fingers and some water, I applied Squeezed Orange, Tangerine Dream, and Funky Fuchsia to the page on the right, pressing the one on the left onto it to reveal it's mirror sky image.



     Then I used my Mini Blending Tool with a circle stencil to make the setting sun, with Pure Sunshine Dylusions Paint. The witch, like most of the other stamping was done with Ranger's Archival Jet Black Ink and embossed with Ranger's Rainbow Sparkle Embossing Powder using Graphic 45's An Eerie Tale Stamp. The broom was made from a scrap of paper, rolled up, and glued to some rope fibers.



     The trees were made with my Cricut Expression cut from black cardstock that I coated with Black Diamond Stickles. Then I used an older Prima stamp to emboss the fence, adding grass along the bottom with some fibers.



     Instead of a haunted house, I made a "Magical Manor" embossing the stamping with Ranger's Copper Embossing Powder, and using up some old alpha stickers to spell MANOR.



     Most of the manor pieces were stamped with Prima Marketing's Old Town Stamp, and colored with Distress Ink Spray Stains. The roof was done with Wilted Violet, and Blueprint Sketch Sprays, while the wood was stamped and colored with Antique Linen, Hickory Smoke, Vintage Photo, and Walnut Stain Distress Ink Sprays. Then I added Purple Stickles to the skull, embossed again with copper using an old stamp.
   

   
   
     The walls were coated with Prima Marketing's Heavy White Gesso before coloring with sprays. Then I finished the edges with Wilted Violet Distress Ink and Bo Bunny's Stitches Stamp.


   
       Watch out for the ghosts that I hid inside some of the windows, stamped with Picket Fence Distress Ink!



     Happy Halloween!

Bo Bunny Serendipity 2 Pager

     Drea here with the Design Team, and I'm back with another project using Bo Bunny's Serendipity Collection from FotoBella.com.



     These beautiful photos of my sister and nephew were taken by my talented cousin, photographybyreginamarie. The quote and colors inspired this 2 pager, based on the sketch found here.



     I fussy-cut one of the photos, so I could place them in front of the door, (inked with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink) cut from a sheet of paper found in the Ephemera.



     For some sparkle, I applied Bo Bunny's Wasabi Glitter Paste to the green flower, (found in the Ephemera), and along the punched border. Then I added the circle Chipboard piece to the center.


   
     Before attaching the punched border, I used it as a stencil over the dark blue paper with Glitter Paste, to shine with the Bo Bunny Double Dot Blue Hues Flourish Jewels.



     The wooden shutters were cut from the same sheet of paper that I cut the door from, and inked along the edges with Walnut Stain Distress Ink. Then I creased the centers, using them to frame the large 8 X 10 photo.



     Always getting so much in the Ephemera, were these green laces. I love how they look with the distressed paper edges, (made easy with the Tim Holtz Paper Distresser)  and the machine-stitching!

Winter Wishes Double Layout

Welcome!  
Jessica here, and today I am sharing a double page layout I did using the Winter Wishes Bo Bunny line. 


This line is so much fun to use for those winter snow play layouts.  I just love the small pops of color the line offers with in it.  The snowflakes and trees are so whimsical and pretty.  The embellishments in this line make for a great amount of layering.








Hope you enjoy!  Thanks for stopping by.

Bo Bunny Winter Wishes Tags

Hi! It's Jessica again!

When I saw this line I knew they would make the cutest little tags.  



I used the Winter Wishes Bo Bunny line. 

I created a layout of distressing on the edge of the tags.  I then used silver embossing powder on the chipboard snowflakes.   I also used something similar to the liquid pearl around the trees.  



It is a little hard to see in the pictures. I used some fibers and ribbon in my stash but FotoBella offers several similar selections in the store to select from. 


Thanks for looking!
