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:
