You are Amazing Bo Bunny "Serendipity" LO ~ FotoBella DT

     Hello! Today I have a layout to share of my niece using Bo Bunny's Serendipity Collection from

     I started with the photo by tearing the edges along the top and sides, and coloring them with Tattered Rose Distress Ink using my Blending Tool. Then I fussy-cut her dress and feet along the bottom so I could place her on the nest that comes in the Noteworthy pack. 

     Right behind the photo is one of the larger pieces of paper that comes in the Ephemera, and from one of the smaller pieces, I cut her name out with my Cricut Expression. Then I used my blending tool again to color the bottoms of the letters with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink, and gave them a coat of Cotton Candy Stickles. The tag that it's on was cut from a sheet included in the Bonus 12 X 12 Paper Bundle.

     Then I used the banner from the Layered Chipboard as my title. 

     Most of the embellishments on here are from the Noteworthy pack, including the flowers, butterflies, and arrows. For some dimension, I decided to curl the flowers, butterflies, and feather on the large arrow.

     I gave the butterflies some antennae with the Bo Bunny Flutter Stamp.

      Along the left side and over a couple of layers of distressed papers, I used Prima Marketing's Doily Stencil with White Gesso and some glitter. And of course, I finished off the distressed edges with some machine stitching.

     Thanks for looking, and shop to get this collection and so much more!

Ahoy Maties Layout ~ FotoBella DT

      Ahoy! Unfortunately I wasn't able to post this earlier because of technical difficulties, (my laptop broke, and had to be taken in) but I'm up and running again with twice the speed and memory. So here's a page I created from white cardstock using some goodies from

     My design inspiration came from this great sketch at Scrapbooking Top 50 Australia.

     I started by masking off the left side with some tape, and applying Postbox Red Dylusions Paint to the Tim Holtz Zigzag Stencil. Then I masked the other side, and used my Mini Ink Blending Tool to feather out London Blue Dylusions Paint. It kinda reminds me of a lighthouse.


      Next came a few spritzes of Broken China Distress Spray Stain along the top left and bottom right. Then I added splashes with the Tim Holtz Splatters Stencil, and some more London Blue Dylusions Paint.

     The netting was stamped with Prima Marketing's Finnabair Net & Wire Stamp using Ranger's Jet Black Archival Ink. Then I used some papers from Bo Bunny's Pop Quiz Ephemera to create the banners, adding a couple of Pop Quiz Stickers to them.

     For the titlework, I used Bo Bunny's Pop Quiz Chipboard with some more London Blue Dylusions Paint applied to the upper letters.

     Then I finished it off with some buttons and hand-stitched circles.

     Thanks for looking, and shop for all of your scrapping needs!

Rays of Hope Card ~ Red Rubber Designs DT

     Hello! I hope you're enjoying the weekend! I'm back to share this quick and easy card made with Distress Inks and water stamping.

     On a piece of white cardstock, I used my blending tool to apply Squeezed Lemonade, Spiced Marmalade, Picked Raspberry, and Wilted Violet Distress Inks in a half circular motion.

     Then I sprayed my Rays of Hope Cling Mounted Rubber Stamp from Red Rubber Designs with water and pressed down. This stamp is perfect for this technique! When it dried, I outlined it with some hand-stitching.

     The sentiment was stamped in black with the Say Hello Unmounted Stamp. Then I backed it with another piece of cardstock colored with the same Distress Inks.

Thanks for looking!
