Guest May Flaum + Camp Scrap Giveaway

I’m always looking for ways to create on the fly and challenge myself to keep things interesting. Hi there, my name is May Flaum and I’m excited to be here as a guest on the Doodlebug blog today! As the mom of two girls and lover of bright crisp colors I’ve been a Doodlebug fan for many years and I always look forward to seeing what they’ll come up with next. The Stars & Stripes collection caught my attention right away, and I’ve been crafting up a storm with it! Today I have a new project to share with you here – made especially for this blog.

My inspiration for this page was to use bits and pieces that I have left, as it seems I’ve crafted my way through most of my stash! No 12x12 sheets of patterned paper left? No problem!










I cut up my chunks of leftover paper bits and made it work! You can see above how I cut apart and placed pieces, as well as adding in stickers, and even stitching some of the fantastic twine along the top edge. I love that all I needed to add in was a sheet of white cardstock and the Stars & Stripes collection did the rest!



I mostly scrapbook with 4x6 photos, and this has me absolutely loving the Simply Put Album Inserts that doodlebug has! In fact I’m having such fun with these journaling papers that I’m almost all out! They work so well in my designs, and I love that they are double sided so you can have options depending on what your project needs.

Whether you challenge yourself to use up leftovers on your desk as I have here today or simply take an hour (or even a half hour) to craft something soon I hope you enjoy some very happy crafting!


If you’d like to see more of my craft projects I welcome you to visit me at my blog (www.mayflaum.com), and I also have a new workshop starting with Big Picture Classes June 6th called Camp Scrap. It’s all new material, more than 15 videos and 54 new and exclusive projects too.  I play with all kinds of scrapbooking and paper crafts – it’s going to be four weeks of creative play and the best part is that the materials will remain up and available, so you can access at your own pace. What could be better? I’ve got a spot to give away to one of you lovely readers!
