Christmas in July Coffee Cup Treat Holders | with Brigit

I always look forward to Christmas in July since I never seem to have enough time to make all the projects I'd like to at Christmas time. Since treat containers are one of my favorite things to give over the holiday season I made a couple of mini coffee cup treat holders using Doodlebug's Milk and Cookies collection.


The mini cups I bought from Amazon here, they worked perfectly with the freebie cup holder svg I download from here, which I cut out with my Cricut Maker.

I rounded the corners and added patterned layers to each holder before I assembled them. After adding the cup sleeve I added a die cut round circle to each lid a straw and some chunky twine.

Instead of having the gift card in the front, I used a die to cut out a piece and glued it to the back of the holder, I didn't want to cover up the adorable Doodlebug paper in the front.

Traveller's Notebook Inserts | with Jomelle

I am patiently waiting for the release of Doodlebug Daily Doodles Travel Planner. In the meantime, I decided to create inserts for when it comes, I am all set and ready to stuff my Travel Planner.
 " I scream, You scream, We all scream for Ice cream" This will be my memory keeping all about Hot Summer Days and Summer Plans.

 Do you like your TN to be chunky and full? Well I do and I am excited to fill these pages up. I will also be creating pocket inserts to add more volume to my TN.
By the time I finished creating my inserts, I am feeling kinda antsy to get my hands on one of the Travel Planners. One of the design will definitely match these inserts I created. Are you getting excited as I am?

Welcome To The Farm Mini Album | with Traci

Sometimes there's a collection that you just can't get enough of ... that's so fun to play with you look for excuses to take pictures.  Down on the Farm is one of those collections for me.  I didn't grow up on a farm, and I don't live on one now, but everything about the patterns, embellishments, and cute little farm animals just make me happy.  So, here's mini #3 using Down on the Farm...
I used the farmer boy for my cover, but the girl farmer looks just as cute!
I covered a chipboard album from my stash with 12x12 pattern papers from the collection.



I designed the tab labels myself using my Silhouette software.  I found a wood sign file that I liked and then cut it up and altered it to add words for the welcome sign and tabs. (Links to cut files: wood sign and font).
Those Odds and Ends die cuts!!  So much cuteness!




































I can't wait to take my granddaughter to a farm or a petting zoo so that I have cute pictures to fill up this darling mini.  If you want to make one, visit my blog at Artsy Albums to get all of the DIY kit details.  Hope you are all having a wonderful, crafty summer!
