Down On The Farm | Planner Pages with Anabelle

I am 'udderly' in love with the new Down on the Farm collection. The animals and other motifs are just adorable. As soon as I saw the cow patterned washi tape I knew I wanted to create a planner set up with the cows as my focus. I've always loved cows and the little character from the collection is absolutely adorable. Here is how my weekly spread turned out.

I created a cute scene with the Icons, die cuts and stickers. The cute chit chats added some amusement to the spread. I love using the Doodlepops to make paper clips. I simply hot glued the paper clip to the back of the sticker and added a punched paper circle. Here's how the back of the clip looks.

Number stickers from the Teensy Type sheets are perfect for the dates. And the Frills are so fun to add in as borders. I like using them along with washi.

On the right hand side, I added the cute 3 by 4 card. I use the backs for writing extra information or for adding a couple of extra sticky notes if I need them.

Decorating the front of my planner is always fun. I created a sweet dashboard using the pocket paper. I cut two pockets out and stitched them together. Then I added them to the cow pattern paper using foam adhesive. I cut more journaling cards out and tucked them inside. These will be great if I need to jot or send a quick note to someone.

Finally, I tucked a few die cuts into my pocket. I added the large sticker and added the extra clips. Doesn't that little cow look adorable peeking out?

Using the Down on the Farm Collection is so much fun. Next up, PIG WEEK! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Udderly Fun Down on the Farm Cards with Kathy

Today I'm excited to be kicking off a couple of weeks of Down on the Farm projects!  I was so happy to get this collection,  the critters, the papers, the colors.... all "udderly" irresistible!  There were so many goodies to choose from I had a hard time narrowing down my selections!  Finally I did, and made these "moovalous" cards!

I laughed out loud when I saw the "Cow's it Going" Chit Chat piece.  I made a fun pop up card using papers from the 6x6 Down on the Farm Papers and the other embellishments are from the Odds & Ends Pieces.

I decorated the front of the card as well, a little more simply to allow the inside to stand out,  using Chit Chats and more papers from the 6x6 pad.

The base of my next card was made from the Down on the Farm Barn Cut file available in the Lori Whitlock SVG Shop.  I added this easel piece to the back so that it stands on it's own.

The barn was made from Gingham Linen Petite Prints  I added some doors to the barn, and when you open it up, there is a fun surprise!

The critters are from both the Icon Stickers Sheet and the Mini Icons Stickers.  How adorable is that little fly sticker?  So stinking cute!
My last card showcases a number of the cute Odds and Ends critters (back to my inability to narrow down my choices...)  I had them all say "hi" in their own way using the Chit Chat pieces.

In case you don't speak "farm critter" I added another Chit Chat piece in the inside to translate for you.

Be sure to check back over the next few weeks for more Down on the Farm inspiration.  That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!

Abigail Font Focus | Holiday Mini Album by Caroli

Today I am super excited to share this project with you, because is a very special one. The Design Team here at DD were challenged to use lots of Abigail alphas in our projects this month, and this is what I came up with: a mini album documenting my vacations last summer in the south of my country, Chile.

I went for a simple binding technique, wrapping the covers with patterned paper and binding them to the pages with my Bind-It-All machine. You can see some Abigail alphas in black color on the front cover.

This mini has a lot of journaling, of course I combined my own handwriting with Teensy Typo alphas in the Swimming Pool color.

I love to include informative details on a mini, in this case, the name of the place we were visiting. I used Abigail and Teensy Typo alphas to add information on my photo and on the page next to it.

Although it's a small mini-album, I managed to include some panorama photos by cutting and folding them in order to make them fit in within the size of my mini.

If you know me, you will know that I love to create mini albums with as much crazy layers as possible, and this is no exception. I wanted to have all kind of pages in this book, so I included pages of different sizes and even some plastic folders with tiny pics.

Some more Abigail goodness for adding a special touch to another page, this time in the new mint color.

I love how funny and crazy this mini album is which also documents the happy vacations I spent with my family this year. This is also the album I taught in a class I gave at the beginning of March in Costa Rica, so it's a very special project and I'm so happy that I got to work with this gorgeous collection on it.

I hope you gained some inspiration so you can start printing pics for working on one for yourself! if you have any question do not hesitate to leave a comment, thank you for visiting us today, see you on a next post!
