Graphic 45 Flutter Accordion Album

Hello everyone. It is Olivia here to share this adorable Accordion Mini Album I created. This design is not my original design but I just love the interesting shape and how easily it folds up.  For this album, I am using Graphic 45 Flutter Paper Collection and the Graphic 45 Flutter Tags and Pockets

Now on the cover page, I used some glitter paste to create those awesome 3D flowers with a stencil. I am loving the Bo Bunny Glitter Paste and have a few more projects in the work with it. I will try to get a tutorial up on this paste soon. 

The tricky thing about this album is it is super hard to take pictures off. But hope you can get an idea of the awesome layering that can be done on an album like this, especially with the gorgeous papers that Graphic 45 Creates.

See you all soon.

Suitcase Gift Card Holder with PhotoPlay Here & There Collection

Hi all, it's Annie and today I'm back with a fun gift project using the PhotoPlay Here & There Collection.  This time of year, I find myself giving tons of gift cards out to recent graduates and I thought it would be fun to dress a special one up for my niece.

The Here & There Collection was perfect to make this little suitcase holder for's vintage with some fun feminine touches.  I cut the box out of one of the sheets of patterned paper in the collection with my electronic cutting machine, but you could easily create a simple box shape by hand and decorate it to look like this as well.

Solid details like the straps, handle, and card holder insert were cut from Espresso Bean and Ecru cardstock.  I inked the edges of all of the pieces with Vintage Photo Distress Ink before assembling for a vintage look.

To mimic the look of travel stickers on a vintage suitcase, I added some ephemera pieces and cardstock stickers from the collection to the front.  As a final touch, I adhered a few paper flowers to the handle.

I hope you enjoyed this fun gift project and thanks so much for stopping by today.  Be sure to visit the FotoBella store and pick up this beautiful collection today!

National Scrapbook Day with the FotoBella Design Team

Know what today is?
National Scrapbook Day!
A perfect day to celebrate all of the crafty things

Today we have the FotoBella Design Team, and a couple of incredible projects that they have crafted just for you.

Bloom & Grow Layout by Annie

I love bright colors and nature, so when I saw the Graphic 45 Flutter Collection, I knew I had to create something fun with it.  After splattering several colors of metallic paint diagonally across a piece of black canvas cardstock, I distressed the edges a bit and rubbed them with silver metallic wax.

Then I fussy-cut tons of butterflies, a few cards, and a frame out of some of the sheets in the collection and adhered them to the background with foam tape.  I made sure to curl all of the butterfly wings and add some rolled flowers from my stash so that everything looks like it's going to burst off the page.

Art Page by Drea

To scrap one of my favorite artists, I started this page with a piece of watercolor paper, adhered with napkins to give it texture similar to a canvas. Then I blended the background with Dylusions Paints, added some Prima Stamps (Finnabair Clear Stamp #4), and a couple of Stamperia Stencils (Steampunk Man and Clock and Mechanisms). The stencil work was done with black gesso and Art Alchemy Paints, with touches of Prima Rust Pastes. Some of the cogs and gears were made with the Finnabair Mechanica Mould, painted with black paint and Prima Waxes, and finished with some more Rust Pastes, also added to the Tim Holtz chains framing the painting. 

We hope you are inspired to create today. Make sure you visit to find all of your crafty products from your favorite companies.
