Put your hands together for the Master of Home Decor, Graphic 45 Brand Ambassador, Belly Lau! Belly’s home decor pieces often double as photo displays, creating a hybrid scrapbook page/frame combo that we have fallen in love with. For Belly’s #G45Expression project she has created an Alice’s Tea Party Perfume Bottle Photo Display complete with a video tutorial. So grab a cup of tea and enjoy! Be sure to welcome Belly to the G45 team in the comments below.
Belly Lau – Hong Kong
Hi, I’m Belly Lau from Hong Kong, I started my scrapbooking journey 10 years ago. Since then, I have been obsessed with scrapbooking and it has become part of my life. Like many other Hongkongers, I live with my husband and two kids in a nice but small apartment. It’s a bit packed, so it’s a pity that I don’t have a craft room but have to hide my handcrafting materials here and there.
This is the second time that I am chosen by Graphic 45 to be part of their team. The last time was in 2015-16, which was a breakthrough for me as it was the time when I found my passion, namely making decorative mini albums and photo displays. This year is another memorable year of mine as my half-hour tutorial video has had its premiere, and my new and decent blog devoted to scrapbook lovers has also been established.
I am so excited to be one of the Graphic 45 Brand Ambassador Team again. I love Graphic 45 products which are always incredible. I look forward to showing you my creations soon.

Perfume Bottle Scenery (Photo) Display
By Belly Lau
“Today I would like to share with you this photo display using Alice’s Tea Party collection, it can also be a scenery display if you don’t want to put photos inside, or you can change photos from time to time. Making photo displays is my favourite scrapbooking technique because I can display them on a shelf like a home decoration or a photo frame.
In this perfume bottle, I used my two kids as the main characters, I love the pink dress matching the flowers, and the playful face which is just cool to match with the green teapot character from Alice’s Tea Party paper.
I used Graphic 45 flowers and butterfly dies for decoration. The Large Tag, ATC Tag, and Flower Dies set comes in four different flower sizes, the flowers in the photo display were made with the largest and the second largest size flower dies from the set. For the glass diamond decoration I used in this project, you can use an origami diamond with Alice’s Tea Party paper instead.
Alice’s Tea Party Ephemera Assortment is a must-have, I can easily decorate the background with some fussy cuttings, and the photo display turns out so cute and beautiful.
Check out the YouTube video tutorial I prepared for you and enjoy!!!
