Memorial Day Layout

     Never forget the men and women who have died, while bravely serving our country's armed forces! Drea with the Design Team, honoring my late uncle, who served in the Army, with this page that I scrapped of him for this Memorial Day, featuring Prima Marketing's Rust Pastes from

          I started with a piece of black cardstock, and a chickenwire stencil that I applied Prima Marketing Rust Paste (Camouflage Set) to, using all three colors from the set. Then I assembled the post cards and papers, cut and torn from Stamperia's Around the World 12 X 12 Paper Pad, and inked along the edges with Distress Inks.

     The key, chains, gears, and cogs were made with Prima Marketing's Black Gesso applied to the Stamperia Steampunk Mechanism Thick Stencil. Once dry, I used my fingers to rub on some Prima Marketing Metallique Waxes (Bronze Age, Rich Copper, Brushed Iron, and Old Silver), followed by Prima Marketing's Red and Brown Rust Pastes.

     The same steps were used on the large circle that I glued twine to, before coating with black gesso. Then I did some stamping and fussy cutting with Prima Marketing's Finnabair Stamps, adding Rust Pastes to one of the gears, and popping it up over the circle.

          The buttons belonged to my late grandma, some covered with Rust Pastes, along with the brads and anchor on the photo, that's finishing the hand-stitching.

     Thanks for looking, and check out all of the GREAT Memorial Day Sales going on at!

Red Nose Day Layout

     Today is Red Nose Day, which is a campaign started to end child poverty. Funds raised support programs to keep children in need safe, healthy and educated, by getting and wearing your official Red Nose at Walgreens. Drea, with the Design Team, celebrating this day with a layout of my adorable nephew, using an older Basic Grey Herbs and Honey Bundle from!

     He's loving strawberries right now, so I spritzed Worn Lipstick Distress Spray Stain onto the background to mimic the mess he made of his shirt. Then I applied Mowed Lawn Distress Ink with my Blending Tool, onto the edges of the green papers, and the fruit die cut below.


     The tags, green scallops, and strawberry are stickers from the bundle.

     Finally, I added his red nose, using Bo Bunny's Double Dot Ruby Red Jewels. Such a cutie!

     Thanks for looking, and shop by color at, to find all of your RED needs! Happy Red Nose Day!

Darling Layout with Carta Bella Flora No. 2

Carta Bella's Flora No. 2 bright and colorful collection from is just what you need to for your spring theme projects.  Find all the fun paper and embellishments to play with here, and get your creative juices flowing.  I'll admit, sometime's my creative mind needs a little jumpstart and in that case I turn to fellow scrappers and fun sites that offer sketches for inspiration.  

This layout was inspired by LetsGetSketchy.  The idea with sketches is to take the sketch and make it your own, as I did by flipping the design and altering my photo display.  

I kept the embellishments simple with just a few stickers.  

I love implementing the paper tearing technique, which is suggested in the sketch.  I've posted the sketch layout image below.  

Join in on the fun by getting your own Carta Bella Flora No. 2 collection from and give this a try.

KaiserCraft Misty Mountains Layout

     With cool, soothing colors, featuring beautiful floral and geometric patterns, the KaiserCraft Misty Mountains Scrapbooking Bundle isn't just for the mountains! Drea with the Design Team, and this time I made a layout to showcase this gorgeous bundle from

     To some of the paper edges, I used my Blending Tool, to apply Distress Inks, (Chipped Sapphire, Dusty Concord, and Seedless Preserves), including the blue floral die cuts that I popped up for dimension.


     I also used the same Distress Inks to blend onto the punched edges, to create an hombre effect, before adding a couple of border stickers.


     For a touch of sparkle, I used a couple of stencils with Bo Bunny's Copper Glitter Paste, to match some of the metal accents in the collection.

Happy Mother's Day!

To celebrate Mother's Day, I decided to create a unique card, just for Mom! 
ReNae here, from your FotoBella Design Team with a beautiful way to show her you care.
I created this one-of-a-kind card using the Bo Bunny Floral Stamp set.  I used a sheet of Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor Paper and placed it on the Tim Holtz Stamp Platform.  Using Ranger Archival Jet Black Ink, I stamped a sentiment and a few flowers on to the watercolor paper.
 I painted the background with water, 
and painted over the wet area.
Once the background was dry, 
I used American Crafts colored pencils to color the floral images
With a sponge applicator, 
I applied Tim Holtz Micro Glaze Distress Sealer 
to the top of the painted surface to give it a finished look.
I adhered the panel to a top-folding 
piece of pink card stock to finish my card.
This card was so fun to make!  I hope you give it a try!
Happy Mother's Day 
from your FotoBella Design Team!

2. With leftover strips, or any of the other papers from the Paper Pad, cut 3" X 4" rectangles, finish edges with Distress Inks, and glue to center of the cards from the first step.
