Scrapbook and Cards Today Featured: Wendy's Mother's Day Ideas

In case you miss Wendy Sue Anderson's featured post over on Scrapbook and Cards Today Magazine blog last week, we thought we'd repost it for you to enjoy as well (and include some additional photos that were not included).

 Good morning SCT friends!  We have some Mother's Day inspiration for you from all our friends at Doodlebug Designs!  First up are some exclusive projects by Wendy Sue Anderson, Doodlebug design team member.  We loved the great message in her layout :)  

Gift Bag Supplies: Flower Box (Simply Put Album Inserts, 6x6 Paper Pad, This & That Stickers); Doodle Twine (bon bon); Teensy Type (lily white); Mini Jewels (cupcake, limeade, swimming pool)

"Is your mom hard to shop for?  Mine is!  Whenever I find her favorite treats, I like to buy one or two and wrap them up especially for her.  This simple little gift bag topper is actually one of the journaling cards from the "simply put album inserts" pad -  I just folded it over and embellished it.  Super easy!

Wendy also created this great Mother's Day layout just for her...
Layout Supplies: Flower Box (Garden Grove, Woodsy, Tiny Tulips, Delicate Daisies, Garden Garland, Dash of Color, This & That Stickers, jewels); Doodle Twine (bon bon); Teensy Type (lily white); Mini Jewels (bubblegum, tangerine, limeade, swimming pool)

"I've had this photo from Mother's Day 2006 just sitting in my photo album.  I was hesitant to scrapbook it...because I guess I'm vain. ;)  I know I do not look great in this photo.   I look like I hadn't had time to get my hair colored in months.  I look pale.   I look exhausted.  I was.  Plain and Simple.  But look at those cute kids!  I love them so much and I am so grateful for them.  And because of that, I chose to set aside my vanity and create a page to celebrate each of them and the opportunity I get each year to celebrate the opportunity I have to be their mother -  I am so blessed to have them in my life each and every day! :)

  1. Very cute. Love the layers and all the details. The photo is adorable!!!


  2. Love this layout and card. Great work!

  3. Such a sweet layout. I've felt that way by a number of photos as me, but as time passes I feel I look better than I do now and my kids look cuter so I have to scrapbook them. LOL! :)
