Pot O' Gold Collection: Gift Set by Corri

Hi everyone!  Corri here today sharing a cute gift set made with the Pot o' Gold Collection.
I used my Silhouette Cameo to cute this cute pot of gold gift bag.  I added a doily and a Good Luck  Doodle Pop, some Glitter Sprinkles and some Doodle Twine.   
For my matching card,  I used an A2 Polka Dot card base and add some paper and elements from the 6" x 6" Pot o' Gold paper pack.  I used three colors of Doodle Twine to create my rainbow themed bow.

Pot O Gold Collection: You Color My World Mini Album by Traci

Happy Monday everyone!  I'm kicking off the week with a project using the super cute, new Pot O' Gold collection.   You know mini albums are my favorite project, so this time I decided to make an album that hangs on a wooden board.  The board has a hook on the back to hang on the wall -- it turned into a fun decor piece! 
For the cascading chipboard pages, I used sheets from the Pot O' Gold 6x6 paper pad.   The little scene on the front cover was created with a 2x3 card from the paper pad, icon stickers, and lots of adorable glitter sprinkles and limeade twine.
I wanted a pop of yellow in my album so I threw in a piece of new Bumblebee Petite Prints.  One of my favorite things about Doodlebug is that everything coordinates ... so the yellow color in the Pot O' Gold collection matches the papers in the Petite Prints collection too!  
I couldn't resist adding a banner of colorful boutique buttons to this page!
I love the phrase sheets that are part of the new 12x12 and 6x6 collections.   The 6x6 versions work perfectly for my mini albums like in the page above -- super cute with those colorful sprinkles!
Since the pages towards the back of my album were longer than 6x6, I combined multiple 6x6 papers and borders from the fancy frills stickers . 
Well I hope you've enjoyed my Pot O' Gold mini album.  Remember, this collection doesn't just need to be for St. Patrick's Day ... all of the colors are perfect for so many different projects!  So check back in with us over the next two weeks because we have lots of fun ideas to share with you! www.artsyalbums.com

Sweet Things Collection: Daily Doodles with Courtney

Hello doodlebug fans! :) Did you know that doodlebug made calendars? They are called daily doodles!!! I.Am.In.LOVE! I started in December and so this is my third calendar page! I already have March in the works. This is SUCH a fabulous way to remember what your family did on certain days. I am also recording baby "firsts" for our new Lilibeth! I can add pictures in the album that coordinate with these memories. Given that I am not a "scrapbooker" by nature, this works brilliantly for me!

 I utilized the cupcake sweet rolls mini icon stickers for birthdays for this month! It made it super fun, easy, and cute to keep track of them! I also used the icon stickers to add the big striped arrow to indicate when people are here. :) The fancy frills are an awesome way to indicate bigger chunks of time where something is going on. 

I used random number stickers for the calendar days. I thought it was very "Alice in Wonderland" fun. AND it was a great way to use up my numbers at the bottom of my alpha sheets! All of these numbers are by doodlebug. Doodlebug also makes the names of the months as a sticker so you don't have to do the work there! :) They do it for you. I love it. I used the fancy frills underneath the title to give it some "umph". 

My daughter Charlotte's birthday is in February (the 27th) so I wanted to do something extra special on that day. I used both the gum ball machine and a sweet thing this and that tag to highlight the day! The bottom of the calendar is emphasized by a "memories" sticker from the this and that page as well as a fancy frill heart border sticker. It's an easy way to dress up your calendar! 

I attach my calendar to the clipart that doodlebug makes and I hang it in the mudroom above the shoes so the whole family can see the schedule! It is working FABULOUSLY for our family. I am just sad I forgot to take a picture of the calendar on the clipart! SO cute!

Give the daily doodles a try to get your family organized! This has been amazing! I cannot say enough good things!
