So Punny | Valentine Mini Album with Traci

Valentine's Day is just around the corner and for me, it was love at first sight when I saw the So Punny collection.  Making a Valentine mini with these colors and darling die cuts was so much fun.  I decided to create a waterfall style album so that all of the yummy papers could really be seen.
I think that little clock is my favorite sticker, but I'm "cuckoo" for all of them so who am I kidding? And this time there are TWO icon sticker sheets ... more to LOVE!
Those tiny heart sprinkles!!
Those new 3x4 cards are also awesome!!  Love them for pocket scrapbooking, cards, and of course, mini albums!
That little scallop border sticker from the This & That sticker sheet is also a favorite ... I wish I had a whole sticker page of those!!
Thanks for stopping by and letting me share my Valentine mini with you!

So Punny | Everyday cards by Brigit

I had so much "pun" putting these everyday cards together using the new So Punny collection! From the sweet and yummy characters to the pun-loving chit chats this collection is packed full of "eggs-tra" doodlebug cuteness.

For my card bases I used three from the so punny cards & envelopes pack, it comes with six assorted cards in different sizes and coordinating envelopes. Really made putting these cards together super quick and easy.

The new chit chats are wonderful!. It's so nice to have all these quotes and speech bubbles to match the collection, makes card making a breeze. Check out these adorable allsorts, they are from the so punny odds & ends pack and the tiny heart sprinkles are just the cutest.

This card I die cut a doily, circle and added a couple of strips of paper from the so punny 6 x 6 pad. The sushi is from the odds & ends pack and the container and bowl is a doodlepop.

Another adorable doodlepop with the perfect chit chat and some so punny paper finishes up this last card.

I hope you've enjoyed these three cards, thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

So Punny | Layout with Tya

Being a self proclaimed "Foodie", I was thrilled at all the fun food icons in the So Punny collection. I instantly fell in love with the cute toaster and Pop Tarts in the collection so I thought I would share with you today the layout I came up with highlighting my daughter and her best friend's love of Pop Tarts. When they found this giant family size package of Pop Tarts at the store we knew we had to celebrate it! Pop Tarts are a staple in any teenagers diet I think :)

To start out I chose the elements icons I wanted to use. The Toaster Time Doodle-pop was really the inspiration behind this layout - when I saw it I knew I had to use it! The background paper is one of my favorites as well. I love the colorful dots on the black background. I added a strip of adorable Waffley Cute paper and notched the ends into a banner and placed it on the far right side of the layout. I backed my photo with the red heart side of the Soy Happy paper. I added a strip of blue scalloped border sticker from the This and That sticker sheet under the photo.

To make my title I turned to the new Chit Chat die cuts and found this fun Love title. I layered some Swimming Pool Abigail letter stickers on the top and added a shiny red heart sprinkle from the Hearts Shape Sprinkles. I placed some foam tape on the title and placed it on a Ladybug Doily to pop it from the background. I added a small yellow heart from the Odds and Ends die cuts as well.

Here's a close up of that adorable Toaster Time Doodlepop . I added another small Pop Tart sprinkle from the Breakfast Buddies pack and then another red heart die cut from the Odds and Ends.

Up in the top left corner I added a few glitter sprinkles from the Valentine Assortment sheet and the "Adorable" tab sticker is found on the This and That sticker. Another die cut heart was  added here as well with  some  pop dots.

I typed up my journaling on white cardstock and mounted it onto a piece of yellow heart paper from  the B side of the Waffley Cute paper. I added a strip of My Love washi tape to the top edge, a small pink heart from the Mini Hearts Cute Clips and to finish the spot off , one more mini Pop Tart sprinkle.
This collection is seriously so fun to celebrate some of your favorite snacks and treats. It is such a versatile collection and I am glad I found this cute photo to match! So if you have any treats or foods you like to record your memories about, grab this cute collection and  make a page. These memories and little snippets of the small pleasures in life are so worth recording! Thank you for stopping by today and Happy Crafting!

Cut Files | Two New Releases

Digital Cut Files

Frosty Friends Digital Cut Files

It doesn't snow every year in Georgia, but when it does, it's a big deal.  And seeing snow for the first time ever, is a really big deal!!!
I created this layout of my granddaughter and loved using the Frosty Friends cut files to bring the page to life.  I created the title on my own using Lori Whitlock's Everyday font and Doodlebug's Snowflake from the Here Comes Santa files.

I layered the pieces with foam tape and a little bit of Doodlebug's sugar coated glitter, used paper and sprinkles from the Polar Pals collection, and tucked a little journaling tag behind the adorable penguin.

Working with cut files can be so much fun!  I love that you can adjust sizes and put shapes together in new ways.  The Snowflake and Snowflake 2 cut files were the inspiration for this layout.

I adjusted the sizes of the four different shapes and then welded them together for a large die cut that became the background for the layout.  I added some Petite Print paper behind some of the snowflakes for a bit of interest on the textured cardstock background and then finished it off by using the Winter title file and adding some glitter for a bit of winter sparkle.  It's winter yummy indeed!

So Punny | Layout with Caroli

I'm really excited to share the first project I made with the 'So Punny' collection. I made this layout to document three things that my little girl likes nowadays. She is nine years old and little by little is changing, turning into a tween, and I'm fascinated watching how she start liking more grown up things. This is why I thought it was important to preserve the memories.

I love that this collection, although being a Valentine's theme, is way more than just hearts, and actually includes several lines of different icons, food, crafts, tv etc which were perfect to use on my daughter's layout.

I created some kind of wreath using a circle cut file and added lots of die cuts and sprinkles in three different clusters of embellishments.

When working on embellishments clusters I usually adhere some of the items with foam dots or something similar, just to add more volume and create a more interesting design. Another good idea is to slightly overlap some of the items on the cluster, to give a more cohesive look. 

Inside the wreath I wrote my journaling and, of course, I mix my handwritting with some of the Teensy Typo alphas, I love this technique. I cut word "Isidora" using my Cameo cutting machine and Better Together free font. 

This is a very simple layout, but it carries a lot of meaning. I hope you liked this idea and get inspired to work on your scrapbooks. If you have any question just leave a comment! 

Have a great day!

So Punny | Planner Pages with Nathalie

I'm very excited to share how I have used the brand new So Punny collection to decorate my planner. This new range is full of fun elements food, office, love related that can be used in many different ways! I decided for this spread to focus on one of my favorite meals of the day, breakfast! Ask my husband, I can not skip breakfast!
This is how my planner looks at the start of the week. As it is a functional planner, I like to leave some space to write more to dos and errands as the week goes. 
I started with the biggest elements which I pulled from the So Punny Odds&Ends pack and a few stickers from the Icon cardstock stickers. Then to add some layering, I cut of few pieces of matching patterned paper from the 6x6 So Punny paper pad:
I used some yellow washi from the candy stripe assortment but also loved using some border stickers from the So Punny This&That 12x12 sticker sheet. As soon as I added those the whole spread looked more festive and colorful! Not to mention that they bring cohesion between the two pages.
The teensy type sticker sheets are my favorites! They each have three different alphabet styles so you can bring variety but keep the same colors. I used two styles from the ladybug sheet, two styles from the swimming pool sheet and one from the bumblebee sheet. Finally, I created a few accessories to pretty up my planner even more!
I hope to have inspired you to use the new So Punny collection into your planners! And I didn't even talk about the puns! That might be for another post!

SO PUNNY | Layout with Virginia

Raise your hand if you love 6x6 paper pads! Me me me! I love the smaller sized 6x6 papers and Doodlebug's 6x6 paper pads are double sided- woot woot- double the fun! Not limited to just making cards, you can most definitely use the smaller scaled 6x6 papers on your scrapbook pages too.

On my layout I used only 6x6 pattern papers.  You might notice that the pattern paper strips appear to be longer than 6 inches?  Shh...only you know the patterns are not that long and the breaks are hidden behind the photo mat for an appearance of a longer strip.

In this collection are some adorable shape sprinkles, check out the little soy sauce container and sushi roll, so adorable!

Thanks for stopping by today, be sure to come back for more awesome projects by the team!

So Punny | Planner Pages with Anabelle

The new So Punny collection is absolutely adorable. I had so much fun creating this planner spread  and making some fun embellishments to go along with it. I started off by making a sweet dashboard and filled the pockets with some of the little characters from the set. The gnomes, toast and toaster and soda friends are some of my favorites so I wanted to be sure to include them. I also absolutely love the bacon and egg so I decided that I would make some clips from the Doodle Pops.


To create my weekly planner spread, I started with the takeout box/rice bowl washi and added it along the top. I used the heart sprinkle washi along the bottom. Then, I created faux washi using the plaid paper. It's one of my favorite patterns. All I did was cut 1/4 inch strips and adhered them to my inserts. Glue sticks work well for this.

I love having pockets on my spreads, so I created one with the pink striped bag. I added a piece of paper to write notes on and attached a washi pull tab to it. Then I embellished it with those adorable die cuts. Stickers finished off the pages. I just love creating paper clips, so I used the Doodle Pops again here. I decided to finish off my planner with a cute tassel. The chunky twine was the perfect thing to use. I added a couple of heart stickers and it matches perfectly with my spread.

Here is a tutorial on how to make your own. First, decide how long you want your tassel. I wanted a large one. You will be wrapping the twine around something, so choose something that is twice as long as you want it to be. I used a book. Wrap it around at least 10 times.

Once that is done, carefully slide it off. Take a length of twine and tie a loop at the top leaving the bottom tail strings long enough to wrap around the twine you just wrapped. I actually used three strands and braided the top part, but you don't need to do that. Fold the wrapped twine in half, at this tie. Next, cut the loops so the strings all hang free.

Now, tie another piece of twine near the top. You can wrap it around as many times as you like.

Tuck the end under with your scissors.

 Finally, trim the edge of the tassel. And then you're done!

 I hope you enjoyed seeing my spread this week. Have fun creating tassels for your planner, too!
