You're a lifesaver card

Hello, Jessica here with you today sharing a card I did using the Bo Bunny Make a Splash Collection. When I saw that You're a Lifesaver sticker in the collection, I knew it would be a cute card.  I cut the larger sticker apart to create two smaller ones.  I created some small tags from a punch I have.  I decided to use some patterned paper on the inside.  I was afraid a pen might not show up on the blue paper so I punched another one of those little tags in white for the inside.

Hope you enjoy!

Bo Bunny Aryia's Garden Classic Beauty Layout

     Happy Memorial Day! Thank you to all of you who are serving or have served our United States of America! Drea here with the FotoBella Design Team. My late grandma was no war hero, but was a hero to our family, so I scrapped this vintage photo of her with Bo Bunny's Aryia's Garden Collection Bundle from, showing it's not just for spring.


    I started by picking out some of the white and grey papers from the 12 X 12 Collection Pack, and the floral and orange papers from the Ephemera. To match the tag, made previously for the Aryia's Garden Tag Set Tutorial, I rounded some corners with a punch and finished some of the edges with Bo Bunny's White Gesso and machine-stitching. Then I placed the Bo Bunny Harvest Orange Zinnia flower in between the tag and photo to draw the eye towards it with the bright color. The white rose behind it comes in the Noteworthy.

     For the title, I cut out "Classic" from black cardstock using my Cricut Expression. Then I gave it a coat of Copper Stickles to match the Double Dot Citrus Brads.

     I added the banner from the stickers, and hand-stitched the twine above it. The edges of the orange paper matting the photo were rubbed with Prima Marketing's Metallique Wax (Vintage Gold).

     The fun part was making this shaker window from the Chipboard filled with Prima Marketing's Mica Flakes (Frosted).

     Thanks for looking! To get these supplies and more shop FotoBella!

Beach Fun Layout!

Welcome!  Jessica here with you today.  I'm sharing another layout I did using the Bo Bunny Make a Splash Collection.  I love the colors in this line.  For this layout, I used the chipboard stickers, clear stickers and the stamp set.  The sandcastle stamp is perfect to use for embossing.  I used a gold in my stash but you could also use this Tim Holtz Glitter.

Hope you enjoy!

Celebrate National Red Nose Day with FotoBella and Simple Stories

Welcome to the FotoBella blog today featuring a layout made with Simple Stories Dance collection to celebrate and honor today, Red Nose Day.  You can find this collection along with many other fabulous products at

I have the cutest photo of my daughter sporting a red clown nose.  This was left over from her Circus celebration when she turned one year old and I found it fitting for helping celebrate Red Nose Day.  I found the perfect saying at the Silhouette Online store and cut it out of black card stock using my Cameo.

I used various paper from the Dance collection to back a couple of the words to make them stand out, such as the dark pink card stock behind the word "MAGIC".

I fussy cut the colorful circles out of one of collections patterned paper and embellished them with the word stickers, hearts and stars.  

Now to shine some more light on what Red Nose Day is, for those of you who may not have heard of it.  Red Nose Day is a way to raise awareness and money to end child poverty around the world.  Donations go towards things like education, vaccines, meals, and many more things that children need to thrive.  The non-profit Comic Relief, which uses comedy to raise money for disadvantaged people, launched Red Nose Day in 1988 in the United Kingdom and since then have raised more than $1 billion worldwide.  You can easily contribute to the fundraising efforts by visiting your local Walgreens and purchasing a red clown nose for $1.  For more information and ways you can contribute, visit and join the movement!

I hope that my post today not only inspires you to create a fabulous layout with the Simple Stories Dance Collection but to also help those in need by getting your own red nose, to wear it and share it proudly today!

Have a fabulous day!

Spring Bird Art Journal Page

     Hello! Drea here bringing you some Spring inspiration with this art journal page using Dyan Reaveley's Dylusions Paints. These paints are so creamy and vibrant in color, and aren't like any other paints I've used before. You can apply them with a paint brush, your fingers, baby wipes, or with Ranger's Mini Ink Round Blending Tool, which is what I did here, in combination of using my fingers.

     For this page I used Bubblegum Pink, Funky Fuchsia, White Linen, and Black Marble with a few of my stencils. Tim Holtz' Blossom Stencil was layered a couple of times along the left side with both pinks, and the dots with White Linen using Prima Marketing's Salvage District Clocks Stencil. In the center of it all is this adorable, clip art bird that I printed out and fussy-cut. 

     On the top left and bottom right corners, I applied Prima Marketing's Heavy Black Gesso and White Gesso to Tim Holtz' ZigZag Stencil for some texture. 

       Then I used some old stamps to emboss the title and the chicken wire on the bottom.

     If you haven't tried Dyan Reaveley's Dylusions Paints yet, I highly recommend them, and sells them individually, or in different sets! Thanks for looking!

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.

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!
