Bo Bunny Toybox Encouragement Cards

Hi all, Jennifer Taylor here. I am stopping by to share some fun and cute encouragement cards that I made using the Bo Bunny Toy Collection. We all can use words of encouragement or reminders once in a while right?!
First, let me tell ya what a awesome value the ephemera pack is- from just all the goodies in that pack you can easily make 8-10 fun cards. It has strips of pattern papers, trims, brads, stickers, and fun embellishments that I used. I also used 2x3 vellum cutaparts from the bonus paper bundle, chipboard stickers, and sticker buttons to add texture and interest to the cards.

Bundled Up Layout (BoBunny - Winter Getaway)

Hello Ladies,
It's Karen here today to share my layout using the BoBunny - Winter Getaway Kit. I found the perfect papers to frame the sweet photos of my nephew all bundled up on a chilly day. I personally struggle with little boy layouts and find them a bit challenging but the simple doodle style snowflake designs were just what was needed.

FotoBella Supplies:
BoBunny (Winter Getaway) I Want It All Bundle
Coordinating Double Dot Paper

Other Supplies:
card stock (blue & red), transparency, ink pad (silver & blue), clear glitter embossing powder, heat tool, craft knife, chipboard snowflake, white crackle paint, snowflake embellishments, white dimensional paint, 4 photos, foam tape

1. Trim 1/4" from 2 sides of a sheet of pattern paper.
Matte with a solid blue card stock 12x12".

2. Cut a piece of transparency the same size as the central photo. Lightly tap a silver ink pad along the edge of the transparency. A light irregular coating of ink is all that is needed to create the appearance of a foggy edged window. Apply clear glitter embossing powder, remove the excess, and heat set.

3. Adhere the transparency over the photo and then matte the central photo with red card stock using foam tape.

4. Adhere the three photos in a row slightly overlapping in the top section of the layout.

5. Use a craft knife to make slits in the center of the truck's hubcaps and carefully attach a brad to each tire.

6. Attach a strip of striped paper along the bottom edge of the layout. Adhere the truck embellishment on the left lower edge using foam tape.

7. Matte a small photo with red card stock and adhere in the lower right corner. Embellish with two die cut arrows.

8. Apply blue ink to a chipboard snowflake. When thoroughly dry, apply white crackle paint to the chipboard snowflake. Set aside to dry.

9. Adhere a die cut border underneath the row of photos. Add two strips of chevron washi tape on each side. Attach the large chipboard snowflake.

10. Finally, embellish the layout with a random scattering of small snowflake clusters. Use white dimensional paint to add small white dots to the layout.

No Snow on Christmas! with BoBunny, Stamperia and G45!

Hello!  This is Marci here today as January's Guest Designer.  I have created a layout of my sweet TWIN nephew, Michael and his TWIN (YEP!) girlfriend, Gina!  It was great to see them on Christmas Day as they live and work in NYC about 2-3 hours from me.  We always wish for  "White Christmas" but alas...none this year!


This is the top of the Layout.  I cut a strip for a 12x12 sheet of paper from Stamperia-12x12-Paper-Pad-Blues- and fringed the edges-I think it does NOT look like paper that way, adding a feel of texture.  I tucked inch circle punched snowflakes from the snowflake sheet of paper in the BoBunny Winter Play Collection.  I also fussy cut 3 of those same snowflakes to use as the "o's" in the title words.  The word Christmas was cut on the Silhouette Cameo.

I wanted to highlight this very cool rice paper from Stamperia.  I used the large tree 
paper cut and rolled the left side,  and tucked the photo in as well as cutting a circle from the Stamperia rice paper spheres Christmas sheet and tucked it in the lower right corner.

I cut out tags from the same 2 collection noted above, BoBunny and Stamperia to create a cluster in the lower left part of this layout.  I then "spritzed" a bit using Tim Holtz Distress Ink Mermaid Lagoon  I added a couple of flowers from G-45 Rose Bouquet Collection.  Finally, I used one for the sheet from the BoBunny Collection to die cut and place sporadic leaf vines.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Graphic 45 (Penny's Paper Doll Family) Layout

      Did you ever play with paper dolls as a kid? Drea here with the Design Team, and I sure did! So the Graphic 45 (Penny's Paper Doll Family) I Want It All Bundle from took me back to my childhood, with vintage paper dolls and beautiful papers, that I assembled into a quilt on this page that I scrapped of my dad with his siblings. My dad is the one in the middle with the bow tie. Aren't they all (Sew) cute? 

    All of the squares were cut at 2", and the edges rubbed with Prima Marketing Metallique Wax (Bronze Age). Then I added gold machine stitching, and some old buttons that I had from my late grandma, and great grandma. The stitching on the buttons came from them, so I left the others alone.

     The tape measure also came from one of my grandma's, and was the perfect fit for this collection! Then I found some old chipboard for my title, and added Prima Marketing Metallique Wax (Vintage Gold) to the edges. 

     The same wax was also used on the flower from my stash and the edges of the chipboard button from the bundle. 

     All five paper dolls were fussy cut to represent each kid.

     I love the little dresses and hats!

     And let's not forget about the boys!

Cute Fox Cards - BoBunny (Winter Getaway)

Hello FotoBella Fans,
It's Karen here today.  I'm so excited to share my trio of cute fox cards using the
BoBunny - Winter Getaway Kit
. This kit has absolutely everything and comes complete with die cuts, stickers, chipboard embellishments, brads, and an alphabet. There are numerous different fox embellishments and the sweetest pattern paper with little leaping foxes.

Here is a closer look so you can enjoy all the details.


For a bit of sparkle, I did add glitter to the hot cocoa steam. I also used a white gel pen to add some a stitched border.
(TIP: Add extra pizazz by using glitter glue to highlight specific parts of your embellishments or background paper. Another great trick is to use a white gel pen to add faux stitching details.)

Other Supplies:
card base, 3D foam tape, card stock (black & brown), glitter glue

Graphic 45 Penny's Paper Doll Tags

     Hey everyone! Drea here with a fun set of tags made with the Graphic 45 (Penny's Paper Doll Family) I Want It All Bundle from I used the friends around the world paper dolls, but most from the collection will work.

     Each doll is able to access his or her costume with accordion fold tabs along the centers, with a smaller outfit, cut from the 8 X 8 Paper Pad, hidden underneath.

                           Supplies                                                                        Tools

- Scor-Tape                                                                                              - Stylus for scoring lines
- Glue
- Distress Inks (Tea Dye, Tumbled Glass, Tattered Rose
- White Cardstock
- Postmark Stamp (Optional)


1. Cut white cardstock to measure 4 1/2" X 7 1/2". Cut triangles off the top by measuring 1" from the tops and sides, and draw lines at an angle connecting them. Color the edges with Distress Ink. For the Scotland tag, which I'll be demonstrating for the rest of this tutorial, I used Peeled Paint.

2. Choose two papers from the bundle, and cut at 3 1/2" X 4". If stamping the postmark, pick the lighter color to go on top.

3. Using the white tag as a guide, measure and draw line 1/4" from top of paper to get the correct angle. Cut triangles off the top.

4. Use Distress Inks along paper edges (Tea Dye and Peeled Paint), and adhere to white tag.

5. Stamp postmark with red ink, and add stamp from papers or sticker sheet.

6. Add button from the Chipboard or sticker sheet to the top of the tag.

7. Cut paper strip to measure 4", ink edges with Distress Ink (Fired Brick), and adhere over top of the center line. Cut another strip to measure 3" and score two lines at 1". Ink edges again, and accordion fold it.

8. Use scissors to fussy cut the paper doll pieces. Use X-acto knife to cut slit in hat, and glue to head.

9. Take 3" strip and glue 1" of it to the back of the boy right above his wrist. It's best to line up this piece with the straightest part of the body, which is why I placed him on the right, unlike the others.

10. Glue boy to the tag, lining up the strips. Use Scor-Tape to adhere his outfit to the front of the accordion fold.

 11. Glue smaller outfit to the left. Make sure when you fold the larger one over it, that it covers it all. 

12. Glue dog and Scotland tab. Cut solid green paper to measure 4 3/4" X 7 3/4", cut top triangles, and adhere to the tag to matte it. 

     Here's some close ups of Spain and Netherlands!
