When Doodlebug launched Winter Wonderland, I was absolutely smitten! This collection has been on my crafty table for months now, and I have used it for project after project after project! It has become a staple in my supplies - not only because it is cute beyond belief but because the collection is so versatile! It has me covered no matter what! So I thought today, I would show you what I mean. Now granted, I live in a country with winter for a good part of the year, but I think it is fair to say that many holidays and events happen during winter, whether there is snow on the ground or not! So being prepared with some thank-you cards seems like some good forward thinking to me! So I decided to whip up some winter-themed thank-you cards - perfect for acknowledging kindness any time of the year, but especially in winter! Now, you might be thinking - someone might rather see sunshine and rainbows in the dead of winter, but I would argue that with faces like these two from the Forest Friends and Winter Wonderland stamp sets, you can't go wrong. I mean, come on! How cute are they? And with beautifully coloured patterned papers with just the right amount of a punch of Doodlebug bright, these thank-you cards are sure to delight!

So while you may not be a fan of winter, I have a feeling that Winter Wonderland will have you embracing the Doodlebug version of the season all year! I know it is going to stay on my crafty table for even more months to come!
Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Valentines Day everyone! What better way to focus on a day all about Love - than to showcase a layout with the title "Love You"!

I had stumbled across this awesome cut file site called "Cut to You" on Instagram and saw this adorable Rainbow Heart cut file and knew I needed to use it to showcase the adorable "Love Notes" collection. I mean Rainbows and Doodlebug just go hand in hand!  The cut file I used is called "Rainbow Love" and it can be found here. I used my Silhouette to cut the SVG file out of some white cardstock.

I then used the Lovers Lane (Pink floral), Rose Garden (Red heart), Love You Bunches (Yellow dot), and Rose Trellis (Aqua clouds) papers to back the cut file. I used the Lily White Dot/Stripe Petite Print paper as my background. I love that the paper has tiny gray dots on it that softens the stark white paper a little bit. Perfect for placing the white cardstock cut file on. I added foam tape behind the cut file and added it to the base. 

Oh this picture,it makes me smile. I took these a  few years back of my girls. They were 7 and 12 at the time and to this day - ten years later, they still are the best of friends. I love that a photo can evoke so many memories. These two cute girls really do love each other so I had to document it on this layout. I added the friends and forever stickers from the This and That sticker sheet to the top left of the photo.  I also added a flower cluster from the Odds and Ends in the bottom left corner. I decorated the flowers with the "Roses" Shape Sprinkles.

The  "Love You"  title is from the Chit Chat die cuts. I added a pink heart from the Heart Shape Sprinkles for some shine. I love how it turned out. Along the bottom edge of the layout, I added a strip of the Lovers Lane paper. I love how it ties in the rainbow theme.

In the top right corner, I added a few die cut clouds from the Odds and Ends and a few tiny dots from the "Roses" Shape Sprinkles. How cute is that little, yellow birdie? He is from the "Tweethearts" Doodlepop.

 I had so much fun making  this layout and hope that I have inspired you to create a layout using the sweet "Love Notes" collection to celebrate those priceless relationships in our lives.  Have a wonderful day and Happy Crafting!

For this project I was inspired by an adorable piece from the Love Notes Odds & Ends collection.  The little envelope with the flowers popping out of the top is so cute, so I decided an album made of envelopes would be fun to create!
I made the album out of 6 A7 size envelopes.  Each page, including the cover, are open with the flap of the envelope folded out.  I cut paper for the inside and outside of each envelope by tucking a piece of 6 3/4" x 7 1/2" pattern paper into the envelope, tracing around the open flap, and cutting just inside my pencil line to create an internal offset.   Here is a video flip-through of the finished project!  
Thank you for letting me share my love of mini albums with you again today!  I would love to hear what you are creating with Love Notes!!
