I really love this collection. I know it is not February yet... (eeek) But this would be a fantastic Non-Traditional Valentine's Day Collection. I am always looking for bundles that can work for many occasions and this one is on the top of my list.

Dwell on you Dreams.

Introducing the new members of the FotoBella Design Team!

Many thanks to all of you who sent in design team submissions. The creativity and talent that I have seen over the last month is amazing.

After careful consideration, we have selected five team members, each with a unique style and great talent. Once again, we are excited to have a very mixed group of experienced, published paper artists and fresh new faces.

I am excited to introduce the new FotoBella Design Team!


Jessica Barnes

I have been scrapbooking for about 15 years - ever since I created my first scrapbook in high school to chronicle a mission trip.  I fell in love with the creative process.  My style as evolved a lot of the years, but I love it more and more each day.

I currently live in Northern Virginia with my husband of eight years and two young beautiful daughters.  They keep us hopping and make are lives so much fun.  Generally, they are the topics of my scrapbook pages.  I also work full time as an interior designer.  I am a night owl scrapbooker, scrapbooking after my girls go to bed.

Drea Slee

Hello! My name is Andrea, but in the scrapping world I'm better known as Drea. I love thinking outside of the box and live to be creative! I love trying new techniques, but my favorites are distressing, stitching, and stamping.

I have a lot of tutorials on my blog, as I love making my own embellies!
I love Tim Holtz for all of his wonderful techniques. I have every color of his Distress Inks and use them on every page. My other favorite is Bo bunny for the GORGEOUS papers that they design. 
And welcome back Apryl, Sarinda and Jeri!

Hi, my name is Sarinda Jones. I live in Salt Lake City with my husband and son. I'm an artsy scrapper, art journaler, mixed-media artist, jeweler and glass artist. I Love it. I try to capture that moment in my life through art. I enjoy the whole process of making art. From the beginning till the end. I like to use different techniques. Everything is spontaneous and I never know what I will get at the end, trusting the process from the start. In my opinion this is the most exiting part of making an art. I can describe my style as mixing of different styles. I don't want to limit myself to the one style. Face the brilliance of your most wonderful creations and dwell on your dreams. I believe in teaching, the sharing of ideas and the playfulness of creating. I excited to be apart of this amazing team.

Originally from Utah, I moved to LA and graduated from FIDM with a degree in Product Development. I then went on to work in the apparel industry. I became a statistic of the economy downshift and was laid off. So to keep my sanity in my free time I became intrigued with projects that included paper, beads and basically anything I had laying around the house. I love to create cards, gift tags, gift baskets as well as jewelry and my own custom wall decor. I love to challenge myself with out of the ordinary projects and create one of a kind pieces that I either sell or use myself. I love doing anything creative and unique, and I am constantly researching what is new and creative to get inspiration for a new creation of my own.

Hi! My name is Apryl Holland. I am blessed with raising a beautiful family and enjoying the hustle and bustle of all that life brings. I live in a friendly beach town in Southern California with my husband, two children, and cute little min pin Daisy Duke.

I began scrapbooking 16 years ago and I can say I love it! My paradise is escaping to my scrapbook room (the woman cove) in the attic, putting on a good movie on Netflix and crafting to my heart's content. I also enjoy cooking, baking, being silly with my kids, and just being me.

Halloween Past

Halloween spirit is all around us now with the festive day of Trick or Treat fast approaching.  The kid's are getting excited and we are busy doing fun things like pumpkin patch visits, school carnivals and halloween parties.  So much fun!  I love that I get to scrapbook Halloween photos during the month of October and remember past Halloween festivities.  I'm working with Teresa Collin's Masquerade Party I Want It All Bundle from Fotobella.  

This collection has some great paper designs and lots of fabulous embellishments.

There is also some great Washi tape!

Grab this collection to scrap your Halloween memories!  Have fun layering up the papers and embellishments like I did.

Have a fabulous day!

Masquerade Party

Here comes Halloween....Here Comes Halloween...right around the next corner....BOO!  

Halloween is such a fun holiday to celebrate, and a great way to celebrate is with a Halloween Party.  I've been working with Teresa Collins Masquerade Party Bundle from Fotobella and made this party invitation.

The collection includes a whole page with invitation die cuts, perfect for those of you who LOVE to make your own invitations.  And each die cut is different, making each invitation unique.

After layering a few papers and inking the edges I added the chipboard bats to the top of the invite.

And at the bottom I layered a the pennant strip and the circle pattern.  This was quick and simple and you will be well on your way to hosting your own Masquerade Party with your favorite ghouls and goblins!  

Have a Happy Halloween!
