We have been to Disney a good number of times, and each time we still feel the magic!  When my daughter was about 6, she made it her mission to see all of the characters around the park, and get their autographs.  It was adorable.  So when I saw the Fun at the Park Collection I immediately thought to make an autograph book.  Take a peek...

I love the little heart shape in the Odds & Ends and decided to model my autograph book after that.  I used a heart shape in my Silhouette, welded on a little tab for my binding and decorated the front with Petite Prints and the hearts side of the Tea-riffic Time Cardstock. The Shin-Dig Alphas were perfect for a title!  I even wrapped some mini dots paper around a marker to bring along for signings!

Inside each spread I have a page for a photo (because we must get photos with each character as well!!) and a place for each character to sign.  I made little eared balloon pieces for a project a few years ago (see here) and I thought it would be cute to make them into  "sign here pieces" with a little doodle twine tail.  I also framed all of the autograph spots with some coordinating paper frills.  Here are some more views of the inside pages...

The Character Autograph ticket from the Chit Chat pieces is just perfect!

I just love all the cute balloons and fireworks in the Bits & Pieces Pack!  And the shaped sprinkles are so fun to spread around.

My now 23 year old daughter has now volunteered to go back and get this book filled with more autographs if I would only send her there!  We just might have to make another family trip!

Have you made any projects using the Fun at the Park Collection?  Be sure to tag @Doodlebugdesign on Facebook and Instagram, we love seeing what you create!  That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek.

Do you want a fun way to document your next park adventure? Try using a travelers notebook! These little books are perfect to fill up with your memories and is easy to take along with you.

The insert I am using is from Doodlebug and I am also using the Buffalo check Travel Planner cover. You can find covers and inserts at just about any paper crafty store or make your own. I covered the pages of the insert with different papers from the Fun at the Park collection.

I added photo mats and embellished around the page so I can easily pop in my photos and journaling.

I do not use every page inside the insert. Some of the pages I will adhere some of the pages together so they are a little more sturdy and my pages will hold up.

Using different dies from my stash to create some photo mats will add some little details around the pages! I pop up the embellishments on thin foam so I can easily tuck in my photos.

It is super easy to create pockets using pattern paper so you can tuck in tags, photos, receipts and other memorabilia.

A lot of the inserts out on the market include pockets in the front cover. This is the perfect spot to add larger die cuts, stickers, clips and photos.

Thanks so much for stopping by the Doodlebug Blog today! I hope you enjoyed my travelers notebook filled with the Fun at the Park collection! I had so much fun creating this and love how it turned out. If you have not yet used a travelers notebook to document a trip or any memories I highly recommend it! You will be surprised at how quick these little albums come together.

I will admit it. I am a huge fan of "the park". Every since I was a little kid, "the park" was a happy place for me. And you know what else is a happy place for me? My crafty space! So now that Doodlebug has come out with their new Fun at the Park collection, I get to "happy happy" craft all day. Well...maybe not all day, but I sure wish it was all day!


It's been awhile since my stamping and colouring tools have been out on my table, so I decided to start my work with this new collection with the Fun at the Park stamps. First up - a set of A2 cards that are perfect for birthdays, baby celebrations or just because!


As always, Doodlebug does an awesome job including a variety of shapes in the stamp collections - not just your main images, but also fun embellishments like heart and star icons and even a tree to create a little scene. Do a bit of stamp masking to cerate a unique image on every card!


And as always, I love embellishing my cards with mini paper clips for some added dimensions. The new star Shaped Sprinkles that coordinate with the colours of the collection are also an awesome way to add interest and shine to your cards!


Yup, this collection makes me happy. These cards do too! I hope they provide a little inspiration for you and bring a little smile to your face.

Thanks for stopping by!
