Puppy Love Collection: Dog Days Mini Album by Jennifer

Hello, Doodlebug fans. Jennifer here and today it's my turn to share my Puppy Love project with you. Last year my family and I welcomed a Bichon Frise puppy into our home and hearts.  Of course, I have taken tons of pictures of him since then and decided to showcase a few of them in this fun mini album.
I started out with a chipboard, 3 ring binder for the main part of the album.  Then I added the chipboard puppy to the front, which was cut using my Silhouette.  The file for the dog can be found here.  I did distort the puppy slightly to accommodate the narrowness of the album.
The dog was then covered with patterned paper and cardstock.  I then stitched around his eye, tummy and on his collar.  For a nice "wet look" on his nose, a little crystal lacquer was applied.
A newspaper from the Odds and Ends package was added to some rolled up patterned paper, then placed in the dog's mouth.  A boutique button was used for the tongue.
Mini tags from the collection were attached to the collar with jump rings, and one was embellished with a button and sprinkles.
Tennis balls and treat stickers were then placed on the lower half of the album.
On the inside cover of the album, a tri-fold card was used to hold some journaling.
Here are all the pages inside the album.
........and the reverse side.
I hope you have been inspired to try creating an album for your fur-baby as well.  That's it for me, but be sure to stop by the rest of this week for more Puppy Love inspiration.  Jennifer :)

Puppy Love Collection: Pawsatively Perfect Planner Love

Hi Doodlebug friends! This week I get to share with you a planner layout using my favorite new collection, Puppy Love. I have always been a dog lover (even though I tried really hard to like cats... it just didn't happen). Our current puppy love, Jake, has been with us for just over a year. He's a red shorthair dachshund and has made my life so much richer. Days were hard when he came to live with us and he's seen me through some dark days and made my whole life seem brighter.

Even though he's still not house trained. Dachshunds are incredibly stubborn. Just like me.

A look at just the layout:

I couldn't do a very puppy oriented spread without including a picture of littel Jake. That photo was taken on the day he got some shots and he was so tired he just collapsed on a pile of laundry. Made me smile.

And here are some details of all the adorable Doodlebug products I used on this project:

And that's my project. Love putting it all together! Hope you enjoyed the peek into my planner today. Kim

Puppy Love Collection: Best Friends Mini Album

Hi Doodlebug friends!  It's Traci, from Artsy Albums, back to share a new mini album with you.  I have two dogs, a 12-pound toy poodle named Reeci, and a 6 pound maltese named Maisy.  When I saw the new Puppy Love collection I couldn't wait to create a new mini for them with all of the adorable pieces.
I combined 12x12 and 6x6 papers to create this little album.  How fun is that chunky twine?!  The title and most of the cute little embellishments are from the new odds & ends package (love these!!).
This album is available as a DIY kit over in my Artsy Albums shop too.  You can get more details about these here.  I know you will love this collection for all of your puppy projects!  By the way, Reeci and Maisy say "Happy Crafting"!
