Happy New Year!  For today's project, I decided to pull out my granddaughter's 8x8 album and work on some pages for January.  I had fun making pocket page elements, using Doodlebug basics like petite prints, twine, an envelope, a doily and sprinkles!!  

First off, can we talk about the Doodlebug 8x8 albums?  Love, love, love them!!  Not only is the quality AMAZING, and they come in all the Doodlebug colors, but the sizes and variety of pocket pages are perfect for creating fun interactive layouts!

For my monthly title page, I used blue jean and swimming pool petite prints and Sunshine alpha stickers to set the stage for my pages to come.  A few little odds & ends from the Winter Wonderland collection added some adorable details.

My first pocket page is a 4x4 design.  Does the upper left square look like pattern paper?  It isn't!  I had fun creating this card with border stickers and paper frills!  There are so many different frills in a package that it was fun to mix and match.  And of course, that adorable Polly polar bear DoodlePop with her sneaky grin is just too cute!

For the lower right pocket, I added a cute 3x3 envelope to my insert card.  A few more Sunshine alpha stickers, a tag with twine, and a few Frosty Fellow DoodlePops finished up my pocket.  Won't a photo and some journaling look cute tucked into the envelope?

For another interactive piece, I created a "flippie" (my word for cards that flip up) in my upper left pocket on this page.  A pretty doily and some frosty buttons were perfect for the pictures that will go on this page ... after all, my granddaughter IS cute as a button ;) !

Isn't that line of colorful mini heart sprinkles pretty??  It just makes me so happy!

Finally, for this page I created a title for the top pocket using more of the Sunshine alpha stickers and a border strip from a sheet of Winter Wonderland paper.  

Thanks so much for letting me share a few of my pages with you!  Having basic Doodlebug supplies like petite prints, alpha stickers, sprinkles and twine on hand, always makes creating with any collection just that much more fun!  I hope you are having a wonderful, crafty start to the new year!!
