Fairy Garden Scrapbook Layout

Hey friends! I am so excited to share my first layout using the new Fairy Garden collection from Doodlebug Design!

I trimmed down the Pink Posies 12×12 pattern paper and adhered to a piece of white textured cardstock from Doodlebug Design. I pulled out all the Fairy Garden embellishments to fill in the line between the pattern paper and the white cardstock. I used icon stickers, mini icons and odds & ends. Some embellishments are popped up on foam adhesive to add dimension.

The Doodlebug Design Garden Flowers go perfect with this collection so I put together a few of them to add to the layout. I matted my photos using a pink paper from the Fairy Garden 6×6 paper pad and popped it up on foam tape.

For the title I found two chit chat pieces that were perfect for my photos and they are popped up with foam tape. I added a few speech bubbles that had rainbow colors to match the photos of Alyssa’s Rainbow party!

This layout was so fun to put together and the design is so simple but I love all the little embellishments I was able to get onto this page! I would love to see you create a diagonal design like this using your Doodlebug Design stash!

Head on over to the Doodlebug Design blog HERE to check out the final layout and stop by my YouTube channel to see my process! Have a great day!

All is Calm Scrapbook Layout| Doodlebug Design

Hey friends! I am so excited to share my first layout using the Doodlebug Designs Night Before Christmas collection.

I used a large title cut file from my friend Lacey Ann Designs Etsy shop as my starting point for my layout! She is having a great sale right now and her cut files are as low as $0.79! I love the font and wide border of this cut file. It makes it easy and quick to back with pretty papers. I used papers from the Night Before Christmas 6×6 paper pad and some from one of the Doodlebug Design petite prints. I wanted to pull in some of the soft pink color in the collection.

I added a few mini icon stickers around my photos and one of the banners in the Night Before Christmas chit chat pieces. When using a big title piece like the cut file I also like to add die cuts and stickers around the cut file.

The little mice were perfect to add around my page! To finish off the page I trimmed down my white base to 11.50×11.50 and matted it on the beautiful Snow Magical pattern paper from Night Before Christmas. I used my We R Memory Keepers typewriter to type out my journaling and cut into strips to add to the bottom of my page. Head on over to the Doodlebug Design Blog to see my completed page using the new Night Before Christmas collection.

A Cherry on Top October Blog Hop | Pumpkin

Hey friends and welcome to the A Cherry on Top October Blog Hop! You should have arrived from the Cherry Blog! This month the team decided to create using pumpkins as our inspiration!

I really wanted to use the brand new Pumpkin Spice collection from Doodlebug Design and a fun cut file from Jillibean Soup available in the Silhouette Design Store! The collection and the cut file are the perfect match and I had so much fun backing this cut file using the Pumpkin Spice 6×6 paper pad! I picked out a handful of patterns I wanted to use and stuck with those papers to back the cut file. I try to pick out my papers before I get started and I usually stick with 3-5 different papers so it does not get to crazy!

I love using big title cut files like this on my layouts. It helps me to use a lot of different pattern papers and colors and make a big statement on my page.

I had some fun selfies from when I had my first pumpkin spice latte of 2020! I just had to take a photo right!? I also tried one of the Starbucks pumpkin cream cheese muffins! YUM! It was so good! I printed my photos at home and they are just under a 2×2 size. I added them to the top of the cut file and added in some Pumpkin Spice stickers and die cuts to each side of the photo.

I tucked in a couple stickers at the top of my photos that came from the 12×12 Pumpkin Spice sticker sheet. I love all the adorable faces on the Doodlebug icons! I really like to have some stickers or die cuts peeking out around the cut file so I used the Pumpkin Spice mini icon stickers to add around the cut file!

I think it is so fun to see the little faces on these icons peeking out around the cut file! I had so much fun working with this collection! It has the perfect color palette for fall photos! Here is a look at my completed layout!

Happy Birthday | Doodlebug Design Hey Cupcake

Hey friends! I am back with a new layout for Doodlebug Design using the Hey Cupcake collection! I really wanted to show off some of the 12×12 pattern paper in this layout so I decided to create some sun ray strips! This is a great way to use a lot of pattern paper and use up some scraps.

I started out by picking the papers I wanted to use. I trimmed each piece down to 3×12 rectangles. Once all my pieces were cut out I cut them into triangles using my Fiskars paper trimmer. I distressed the edges of each triangle using the edge of my scissors to add some texture.

I used a ruler to mark the center of my American Crafts white cardstock background and began to adhere my strips of pattern paper down. The strips will hang over the edge of the background cardstock so you will just need to trim them down with some scissors once everything is down. Once everything was stuck down I got to work on my photo. I used a photo from my daughters birthday party a few years ago. I cut it out using the Doodlebug Design Nesting Scallops die. I also cut out a piece of pattern paper from the Hey Cupcake 6×6 paper pad using the same die. I positioned my framed photo towards the bottom of the page where the strips ends meet.¬†

I really wanted the rays of pattern paper to appear as if they were coming out form the top of the photo. I popped the photo up on some foam adhesive from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L and started to add some odds & ends around my photo. I used the super cute acetate balloons included in the Hey Cupcake odds & ends pack around the top of my photo. I like that you can still see the pattern paper through the balloons.

For my title I used one of the Hey Cupcake chit chat pieces and placed it at the bottom of my photo with some foam squares. I pulled out the super cute sprinkles from the collection to add around the bottom of the page as well. I love how it turned it out. Here is a look at my completed layout.

Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope you found some inspiration here today. Have a wonderful day.

Inky Stamper New Release

I am so excited for my friend Chelsea over at Inky Stamper! Today is the big day she opens her very own online shop with her own stamps and dies! This has been her dream for years and I am so excited to help celebrate with her today! She sent me one of her new Cicada stamp and die combo along with her Small Fry Box and Mini Double Bow Die! So fun! I created a card for today using the Cicada stamp set.

I created a scallop shaped card and used some fun papers from Doodlebug Design Simply Spring Collection. I colored in the stamped image with some Ohuhu Makers. I knew I wanted a cutesy looking bug so I decided to color the image using pinks. I love how it turned out! I cut out a speech bubble with more Doodlebug papers and stamped out one of the sentiments. To finish off the card I added some Doodlebug heart sprinkles.

Make sure to head on over to the InkyStamper Store and check out her very first release. Thank you so much for stopping by today and I hope you all have a great day!
