BUNNY HOP - BUNNY ACCORDION MINI ALBUM | with Kathy

I'm excited to be kicking off a month of Bunny Hop inspiration!  Doodlebug's Easter collections are always a favorite, and ADORABLE, and Bunny Hop does not disappoint.  I combined the collection with a couple of the coordinating SVG Files to create this fun Easter-themed mini.  Take a peek...

I started with the Bunny Hop Bunny Boy and the Bunny Hop Fancy Egg SVG files which can be found in the Lori Whitlock SVG Shop.  I used them to create the base of my album using chipboard, textured cardstock and papers from the collection.  I used the chipboard to give it sturdiness, and so that it would stand up for display.  I played with the Egg file in my Silhouette to create a shaker for my album cover.  I filled the egg sections with the new lily white and bunnies and chicks shakers.  My title is from the Chit Chat Pack.  I just love the overalls on that Bunny!


Since the album stands on it's own, I wanted the back to look as cute as the front for display.  I added the overalls on the bunny back, and I just couldn't resist a little pom-pom bunny tail!  To keep my album closed when standing, I added a ribbon tie that closes with some Velcro Dots.

The album is a simple accordion style for the pages.  I copied egg shapes in Silhouette, overlapped them slightly and welded them together.  I cut them from the coordinating textured cardstock pack.  All that was left was to decorate the pages!


I started by covering each "page" with papers from the 6x6 Pad using a stitched egg shaped die from my stash.  I then added photo spots (rectangle & stitched dies) and decorated them using all the fun goodies from the collection... This & That Stickers, Odds & Ends, Icon Stickers, Shaped Sprinkles, Chit Chats and Bits & Pieces.   I love an accordion album because you can use both sides of the pages.  Here are some close-ups of the first "side" of the pages.  


I made a couple of pockets by cutting another egg, cutting it in half and gluing around the edges to form the pocket.  This made a perfect spot to hold a tag from the Bits & Pieces for journaling. The tag toppers were done using ribbon from my stash and my tiny-attacher stapler.


Here is the other side of the album pages...




I'm so happy with how this turned out... it's always great when things turn out like you envisioned!  I put together a quick video showing the album in motion, you can see it on my YouTube Channel here.

MADE WITH LOVE BAKED WITH LOVE LAYOUT | with Conny

Hello there, Crafty Friends! It's Conny, and I'm excited to share with you a 12" x 12" layout that I recently created using the lovely Made with Love collection. Originally, I had planned to put together an album, but unfortunately, I didn't have enough photos to make it happen. However, I did have a few adorable photos of my daughter Savanna cooking and having a blast, so I decided to use them to create this layout instead.
 



Let me walk you through the process. To start, I used the Made with Love Shadow Box Insert Kit, which comes with vellum, cardstock stickers, and shape sprinkles. I layered all the shapes on the vellum in a circle, following the example given in the kit.


Next, I placed the vellum on the Dab of Butter 12x12 cardstock, trimming it about 1/2" inch all around. Then, I placed the blush textured cardstock in the background, created a frame, and stitched all around using my sewing machine.

To add some extra flair, I added some standard eyelets at the top of the layout, placing them between the vellum at 3" and 5 1/2", and tied a bow with tulle. I then embellished the layout with Odds and Ends, Doodle-Pops, and leftover sprinkles to add a little more fun and personality.


For the photos, I decided to print them in black and white to ensure they wouldn't clash with the embellishments. Doing so also enabled them to stand out and be the focal point of the layout.


I'm thrilled with the final result of this layout, and I hope it motivates you to create your cards, a mini-album for your recipes, or a 12"X12" layout using the Made with Love collection.

Please let me know what you think about this layout, and feel free to share your creations with me. Additionally, this layout can be beautifully displayed in a shadow box for everyone to appreciate. Thanks for reading, and I'll see you all soon!

MADE WITH LOVE CHOCOLATE CAKE LAYOUT | with Jen

I don't do many layouts. But as soon as I flipped through the paper in the Made With Love collection, I knew I wanted to make a layout and I knew just the pictures!

I started with the Dab of Butter paper for my base and topped it with Bake Me Happy. I used two of the borders from the Flour and Sugar border page.

I then layered up a bunch of pieces from the Odds and Ends pack.

For my title I took the Cupcake Chit Chat piece and cut cup off the front and paired it with the Chocolate title. And in case you're wondering, that move of stuffing the cake in his mouth? That's genetic.


Have a great day!
