I love the shine and dimension of the Sprinkles leaves. They make a perfect accent for any card or page.
Supplies: Doodlebug Friendly Forest collection, Chippers
Autumn Mini Album
Hello! Hello! Isn't the Friendly Forest line by Doodlebug Designs absolutely adorable? I love the little squirrels, fox..why just about everything! When i saw the whole collection all I thought was how well everything goes so well together. Almost like a family, together.
So I went about creating this little accordion piece that measures 4x4 when closed. It works out well as both, a deco piece and a mini album.
Here's how it looks

HELLOOOOOO out there! Are you LOVING Friendly Forest!?!? This is definitely one of my favorite collections of the year! I couldn't stop making things with it!!!
Court from Court's Crafts here to show you some versatility with this line! I used it for a card, a garland, and cable identification! Yep, 3 projects - one post! Enjoy! :)
Project 1: Fall Family Card
This is a legal sized card as I wanted the height of the tree and the falling leaves to be the overall feeling.
I wanted to get a "sentiment" in there even though the background is full of words. I anchored it in the pile of leaves with a paperclip as well as the acorn from the icons. Check out the polka dots on the brown sprinkled shape leaf at the bottom... Lovin' that leaf.
Okay, I admit it... This fat-headed owl was part of the Ghouls and Goodies collection... but he was just TOO darling!!!
Ummm... HELLOOO sprinkled shapes!!!! These little leaves are so yummy!! And the pics of them don't do their mini-prints justice so I thought I would get you a few close-ups. Aren't the checkers on the orange one SO darling!?!
Polka dots on the purple ones? Yes, indeedy. And just in case you thought the gloss was something I added, it's not! They come that way! Glossy goodness.
Grab some. You will LOVE them! Spoiler alert: they came out with both of the Christmas lines too!!! :)
Project 2: Leaf Garland
Isn't this so super pretty? And you know what?! It took absolutely. no. work.
Here is the product that I simply pulled out of their die cut edges and sewed in a line... seriously. It retails for $3.99 and took all of 5 minutes to make. My kind of home decor!
See those stitched lines around the edges of the leaves? They come printed on. love. it.
Here is how large it is all sewn together! Emmaline wants it for her door but we'll see... Mommy wants to put it on the mantle!
Another close up!
Project 3: Okay... I know I got carried away... Cable Identification.
So.... do any of you have husbands that steal your power cords, etc.? Ugh. Mine. Steals. Mine. All. The. Time... It drives me nuts! Whenever your phone is fully charged there are chargers everywhere and the minute you need one - cannot be found!
Well, my husband claims he never takes mine... now we'll know!
I added this simple touch of washi tape to give it some fall flair! I LOVE IT!!! I am totally going to change these out for the seasons and do different designs on them! So fun and SO fast!
Earbuds: cute-ified. Love.
I had a thicker band on the computer charger so I decided to use a wider one. Aren't the polka dots cute!?
So... One of the best things about doodlebug washi tape is the different widths! You can see them all in perspective here. The bands at the top of the tags let you know how thick they are and what the washi tape looks on a white background. :)
Close up of the cuteness. :) They are so happy! :) My mom already asked if I could do hers so I brought some washi tape over and put it around hers too! :)
So... I just got the new iPhone6 and found this case... in classic doodlebug color: swimming pool blue.. :) Of course I had to pick that one! Now... I can match the washi tape to my phone!!! :)
