Yankee Doodle Collection: FiloFax Fun with Jomelle Gomez

Hello Everyone! It's Jomelle here today sharing my 4th of July layouts in my A5 planner. Of course I chose my Finsbury FiloFax in Cherry. It matches beautifully with the Yankee Doodle Collection. 



I love it when I open my planner and I see many pretty embellishments. Here you can see I made the dashboard using one of the vellum and paired it with the stripes paper. 


I left a little space in my dashboard so I can add pictures during our 4th of July celebration this year. I usually use my Sprocket to print my pictures. It will fit in the space.


Planner Girl "Pocket Love" Pockets stuffed with many embellishments.




I wanted to show how gorgeous are the Vellums are in this collection. This picture doesn't do justice on how pretty they are. You can see how the stripes 12x12 cardstock looks really good behind the stars vellum. 


I made another dashboard and added the tag on the side. 



Here is my weekly layout for the first week in July. It also happens that we are celebrating 4th of July this week.






I wanted to make another page just for July 4th. I want to write notes and our plan for this day. I added stickers to make the page colorful.




How cute are these washi tapes and the bicycle paper clips?


Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope I inspire you to create your 4th of July celebration in your planner. Have a nice day!

Yankee Doodle Collection: Celebrate America Layout with Tya

Hello Doodlebug friends! It's Tya and I am excited to share with you a layout I did using the adorable Yankee Doodle collection! I have to admit - the 4th of July is my favorite holiday! It probably has something to do with the warm weather, yummy food and best of all spending time with the people I love. Every year we get together in my aunt and uncles cul-de-sac and have a huge party with lots of good food, lots of visiting and we cap the night off with fireworks and sparklers for the kids. Here is my layout:
I just adored all of the patterns in this collection. I loved the vibrant blue color so I added a piece of pattern paper for my background. I cut a piece of stone grey gingham linen Petite Print down to put my photos on.  I then layered some red paisley paper and cut some strips from the border sheet and added those to the red paper. I mounted my photos on white cardstock and made them look like a Polaroid shape. I like doing this for a little variation. I did my journaling on white cardstock and cut it into a banner shape and mounted it on some blue jean gingham linen Petite Print paper. Here are some close ups of the embellishing I did:
To make the title I used some stickers from the Icon Sticker Sheet and the This and That sticker sheet. The viewmaster shape is from the Odd's and Ends as well as the firecracker. I mounted these to the layout with some glossy accents and foam tape.
Up in the top left corner  I made a little cluster of embellishments. I started by cutting a banner shape out of the July 4th paper from the 6x6 paper pad. I also cut a light blue firework pattern paper from the 6x6 pad. I glued a accetate firework from the Odds and Ends to the base and then glued the banners down. I popped the July 4th banner up with foam tape. I then added a flag and firecracker sticker from the Icon sticker sheet.
I then got quite a few different sized star die cuts from the Odds and Ends and glued them in the corners of the layout .I also added some star sprinkles to the layout. I added some word stickers and a cute little mouse to one of the photos. I finished the layout off with a blue bakers twine bow.

I had such a fun time making this layout and remember the fun time that we had that night. I hope I have inspired you to pick up this collection and record some of your favorite 4th of July memories. Thanks for stopping by today! Happy Crafting!

Yankee Doodle Collection: 4th of July Star Frame by Courtney Lee

So I have this frame and I change out the contents for the seasons and I just love it. I picked it up for like $1 at an Aaron Brothers on their ultimate reject sale table and I loved it! It sits on my entry table all year round.  :) Court from Court's Crafts here with this cute 4th of July home decor piece!

I really wanted to pack as many of these cute embellishments onto this star as possible. The mini icons made that so fun!

I started with the big pieces and then filled it in as I went. You can see the acrylic pieces from the awesome odds and ends and some of the awesome foiling details in this photo. :)

The shape sprinkles are always amazing. I put quite a few of those stars and hearts on here. I love how even the firework (top left) has a little foiled burst of flame at the back. Doodlebug's attention to detail is second to none.

Of course by now you should know how obsessed with cute clips I am. These bicycles with the baskets on the front - LOVE!!!!! So I just had to get one of those in my display as well.


Lastly, the star vellum was just too scrumptious to pass up so I made it the background. Did you see the awesome matte sprinkles scattered about? And the tiny dots are from the patriotic posies shape sprinkles. I used almost all of those little ones on this project.

Here it is again! I hope you make something cute for our nation's Independence Day!!!!

Yankee Doodle Collection: Independence Day in Chile by Caroli Schulz

Hello! Caroli here and today I want to show you these two layouts I made using awesome Yankee Doodle collection.

I must say I'm glad that patriotic color of USA are the same as the colors of my country, Chile. This way, I can use this patriotic collection to scrap my own patriotic memories as well, how cool is that?!  

I love that this collection included flowers, in addition to traditional patriotic icons such as stars. Our independence day down here occurs during spring, so the flowers come very handy.

The first layout I made features my little girl when she was just 2 years old, she's wearing a traditional Chilean outfit called "huasita", thus the title. My mom sew her the dress and she was so proud and looked so cute too! Here's the layout:



I machine-stitched the title and left some thread loose just to add a funnier touch, it's messy but in a controlled way, haha!



Love all the silver metallic details on the paper and embellies, it really looks gorgeous in real life, pics dont really catch the effect properly. Love the clear acetate embellies on the Odds&Emds package as well, a bit of transparency will be always a great idea!



My second layout also features my little girl, but this time eating one traditional food called "anticucho", which basically are meat brochettes. She was so excited of eating them for the first time so it was a great memory to scrap. Here is my layout:




I love all patterns in this collection, I used the 6x6 inches pad for filling the letters I used as title, tiny patterns are so cute!


Love all the sprinkles Doodlebug makes and the ones of  this collection are so cute, don't you just love the super tiny dots?


Something I love about sprinkles is that you can use them on teh "i" of a title, and they are matte!



I hope you liked these layouts and get some inspiration to scrap your patriotic memories as well. Have a lovely day!

Yankee Doodle Collection: Happy 150 Canada by Karen Hanson

Hi everyone! It's Karen from ScrappyCanuck Studios, and today I am celebrating with Doodlebug! Why? Well, Canada happens to be celebrating it's 150th birthday this July 1st, so this born and raised Canadian grabbed some paper and got crafty. Because let's face it, 150 is a big deal and I am always looking for a good excuse to craft! Who is with me?!
Now besides the fact that Canada is having a big birthday, I am also celebrating with Doodlebug because of the release of this cute new collection called Yankee Doodle. Now this collection is full of all sorts of red, white and blue fun, but don't be afraid to isolate a colour or two like I did for these 3D numbers that I plan on using for a centerpiece on the picnic table. And while this collection truly is perfect for the 4th of July or a trip to/around the States, it is also perfect for layouts or projects about picnics or other summer adventures!
In fact, up here in Calgary, we also celebrate a pretty famous rodeo/fair called the Calgary Stampede during the second week of July so I decided to add a bit of Stampede fun onto my 3D letters. Now I get to keep this cute piece up right through to the middle of July (although I might just switch out the party hat for a cowboy hat)! This cute horse is from the Odds and Ends pack in this collection and is probably my favourite piece in the whole collection... ...although these hearts and stars (especially the vellum) are a close second! And if the Odds and Ends don't give you enough to love...
 ...how about the Patriotic Posie Shape Sprinkles that layer perfectly on a flower shaped
die cut?!
 
And while you are playing around mixing and matching different types of products, don't forget to dip into your twine stash to add even more texture to your project! The red and white Ladybug Doodle twine is a perfect fit!
You know, the flexibility and versatility of Doodlebug collections really is one of the things that I love the most about them! Mix and match across product types and even collections, and even isolate themes within themes! Which has me thinking...how am I going to use Yankee Doodle next? Thanks for stopping by! Hugs, Karen

Yankee Doodle Collection: Card Set by Mendi

Hello Doodlebugs!  It's Mendi here today with some fun projects featuring the adorable new Yankee Doodle collection.  I don't know about you, but the Doodlebug's fourth of July inspired paper and embellishments win me over every time.  There's just something so happy about the red, white and blue color scheme, don't you think?
To start off I thought I would create some everyday cards that are perfect for all year 'round. I'm not very good about sending out holiday cards outside of Christmas, but I can always use some good basic cards to grab on the go when I want to let someone know I am thinking of them.   For my first card I created a thank you card pairing the borders from the pint sized treasures paper with a sentiment strip from the summer celebrations paper.  I then added a clear acetate bicycle die-cut from the odds & ends pack and embellished it with some red matte sprinkles from the collection.  My final touch with a cute dog sprinkle from the Puppy Love collection. 
For my next card I cut another sentiment strip from that same summer celebrations paper and then tucked some banners below it using scraps from the 6x6 paper pad that I had left over from previous projects.  I completed it with a simple stitch around the edge with my sewing machine and a darling house die-cut from the odds & ends set.
For my last card I wanted to mimic the shape of the cute Doodle Pop pocket full of posies sticker so I turned to some Fishtail banner dies in my stash to cut the bottom edge of my card base.  As a final finishing touch I added some white matte sprinkles to the centers of the posies on the border strips going down each side of my card.
As one last project for the day, I created a fourth of July layout using this sweet collection. 

I used all the die-cut stars from the odds & ends pack to form a diagonal trail across my page and to help direct the viewers eye from one side to the other.
I hope I have inspired you to take a closer look at this happy collection.  I love the unexpected touches of green and I think you will find that it works beautifully way beyond it's intended holiday.  :)
