Hip Hip Hooray: Simply Put Project Life-type Scrapbooking with Doodlebug

We love that one of the hottest trends going on in scrapbooking today is the project life-type way of scrapbook. And even bringing back the popular style of using pocket sheet protectors to scrapbook more pictures quicker.

Today on the blog we have asked Sharm and Wendy to create spreads using the Doodlebug pocket Sheet Protectors and our new Hip Hip Hooray Collection.

We hope you will be inspired to create with these fun products from Doodlebug. And be sure to leave a comment, share or pin and you could win one of SIX boxes of assorted product.

Pocket Page Spread
by Wendy Sue Anderson

Hi Doodlebug Friends!  It's Wendy Sue here again today, and I am super excited to share my latest Doodlebug creation with you!  One of the biggest trends in scrapbooking today is using pocket pages - did you know Doodlebug has their very own collection of pocket page protectors?   They are called Storybook Album Protectors, and I just love all of the sizes and styles - they are perfect for adding in with my regular pages in my albums. 

Today I am sharing a layout using the 4x6 vertical photo protector page...along with the super fun, super happy, super colorful "hip hip hooray" collection.

I used these fun photos from Zach's 5th birthday.  He requested a "pizza picnic" on my bed for lunch - which is appropriate since his birthday is in January and it's way too cold for a picnic anywhere else!

I used one of the little treat bags to create an accent for one of the pockets - and also to act as a mat for my journaling.  I tucked some of the fun doodle-pops right inside and secured them with some foam dots.

For the title, I used some of the stickers from the border sticker sheet, some of the sweet little tickets, and that short, squatty, sweet little monster - I just love how everything coordinates and makes scrapbooking so easy!
For my final little decorative piece I used a card out of the Simply Put pad.  It was cute all by itself, but I wanted to jazz it up a little bit, so I added some doodle tape, doodle twine, stickers, and sprinkles.

The final result is a quick and easy page that celebrates a fun day - the best thing about pocket pages is that you can add as many or as few photos and decorative elements as you want and it looks good no matter what!  I tucked six additional photos in the back-side of these pockets - the story is complete, the memory is saved, and it didn't take me hours and hours to do it!  I call that a win-win!

Storybook Page Spread
by Sharm 

Hello there! Sharm here to share a storybook page using the Hip Hip Hooray Collection. For those of you who are going 'what's, storybook page?' Well, simply put, it is very similar to the very fast growing mode of scrapbooking called project life. I will be very honest with you.. this is my very first attempt at this current-in-trend scrapbooking method.

I have always wanted to have a go at it, but was worried that I may not be able to catch up and maybe even run out of photos to scrap. But the beauty of this is, you need not follow what everyone else is doing. You just need to go at your own pace.

Since I had the privilege of making one for my DT assignment this month, I must say, I LOVE this!! And the fact that Doodlebug Designs caters to this trend is simply amazing! Imagine the cute spreads you can come up with. Without further delay, here's my spread...

I chose to document my wish list for my two girls and instead of using the usual pink for girls, I wanted to try something different. I feel this theme turned perfect! Here are some close-ups:


What I did was to further embellish the simply put cards of the said collection and on the last photo,  I cut out a 12x2 strip of patterned paper and embellished it with washi tape!
