Hi All! Today I am sharing a project idea using an embroidery hoop and the Fun at the Park collection! I also recorded a YouTube tutorial for how to assemble and a flip through that you can watch here

I made a mouse-shaped pocket using an embroidery hoop and pretty red Mini Dot papers from the collection. The front is embellished with elements from the Odds & Ends and Chit Chat packs. 

This pocket has space to hold lots of inserts. I used the Luggage Tag cut apart sheet to make these inserts. These are all decorated using the Odds & Ends, Icon stickers, and sprinkles from the collection. I also used the Beetle Black Doodle twine for a finishing touch. 

One of the tags included in the pocket is a DIY shaker tag with gold twine for a little extra sparkle! 

I hope you get some inspiration from seeing details of this project! Happy Crafting!

We have been to Disney a good number of times, and each time we still feel the magic!  When my daughter was about 6, she made it her mission to see all of the characters around the park, and get their autographs.  It was adorable.  So when I saw the Fun at the Park Collection I immediately thought to make an autograph book.  Take a peek...

I love the little heart shape in the Odds & Ends and decided to model my autograph book after that.  I used a heart shape in my Silhouette, welded on a little tab for my binding and decorated the front with Petite Prints and the hearts side of the Tea-riffic Time Cardstock. The Shin-Dig Alphas were perfect for a title!  I even wrapped some mini dots paper around a marker to bring along for signings!

Inside each spread I have a page for a photo (because we must get photos with each character as well!!) and a place for each character to sign.  I made little eared balloon pieces for a project a few years ago (see here) and I thought it would be cute to make them into  "sign here pieces" with a little doodle twine tail.  I also framed all of the autograph spots with some coordinating paper frills.  Here are some more views of the inside pages...

The Character Autograph ticket from the Chit Chat pieces is just perfect!

I just love all the cute balloons and fireworks in the Bits & Pieces Pack!  And the shaped sprinkles are so fun to spread around.

My now 23 year old daughter has now volunteered to go back and get this book filled with more autographs if I would only send her there!  We just might have to make another family trip!

Have you made any projects using the Fun at the Park Collection?  Be sure to tag @Doodlebugdesign on Facebook and Instagram, we love seeing what you create!  That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek.

Do you want a fun way to document your next park adventure? Try using a travelers notebook! These little books are perfect to fill up with your memories and is easy to take along with you.

The insert I am using is from Doodlebug and I am also using the Buffalo check Travel Planner cover. You can find covers and inserts at just about any paper crafty store or make your own. I covered the pages of the insert with different papers from the Fun at the Park collection.

I added photo mats and embellished around the page so I can easily pop in my photos and journaling.

I do not use every page inside the insert. Some of the pages I will adhere some of the pages together so they are a little more sturdy and my pages will hold up.

Using different dies from my stash to create some photo mats will add some little details around the pages! I pop up the embellishments on thin foam so I can easily tuck in my photos.

It is super easy to create pockets using pattern paper so you can tuck in tags, photos, receipts and other memorabilia.

A lot of the inserts out on the market include pockets in the front cover. This is the perfect spot to add larger die cuts, stickers, clips and photos.

Thanks so much for stopping by the Doodlebug Blog today! I hope you enjoyed my travelers notebook filled with the Fun at the Park collection! I had so much fun creating this and love how it turned out. If you have not yet used a travelers notebook to document a trip or any memories I highly recommend it! You will be surprised at how quick these little albums come together.

I will admit it. I am a huge fan of "the park". Every since I was a little kid, "the park" was a happy place for me. And you know what else is a happy place for me? My crafty space! So now that Doodlebug has come out with their new Fun at the Park collection, I get to "happy happy" craft all day. Well...maybe not all day, but I sure wish it was all day!


It's been awhile since my stamping and colouring tools have been out on my table, so I decided to start my work with this new collection with the Fun at the Park stamps. First up - a set of A2 cards that are perfect for birthdays, baby celebrations or just because!


As always, Doodlebug does an awesome job including a variety of shapes in the stamp collections - not just your main images, but also fun embellishments like heart and star icons and even a tree to create a little scene. Do a bit of stamp masking to cerate a unique image on every card!


And as always, I love embellishing my cards with mini paper clips for some added dimensions. The new star Shaped Sprinkles that coordinate with the colours of the collection are also an awesome way to add interest and shine to your cards!


Yup, this collection makes me happy. These cards do too! I hope they provide a little inspiration for you and bring a little smile to your face.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hey scrappers! I love, love, love the new "Fun at the Park" collection! Since I grew up in Florida, I have so many wonderful memories of Disney World. I couldn't wait to make a super cute album so, I thought a mini shaped like mouse ears would be just perfect!

To make the album, I used my Silhouette Cameo machine to cut the design out and added lots of papers, die cuts pieces and stickers from this adorable theme park collection.

I took advantage of every space on this fun shape, including the ears. I mimicked the round silhouette by adding a scalloped shape circle for a small photo (or journaling) and a super cute balloon die cut.

And speaking of balloons ... how sweet are these, with their happy little faces and polka dots? They're from the Bits and Pieces and are perfect for embellishing your pages that are all about the happiest place on Earth!

This collection is ideal for your theme park memories of thrilling rides, the castle, Main Street, your favorite characters, the parade and the evening light display!

Most of the die cuts in this mini are from the new Bits and Pieces package including the fireworks on this page and the Mickey-inspired tab below. So cute!

Can you believe I fit 5 photo mats, a circle piece for journaling, and the adorable car die cut all on the pages above? Never underestimate the space in a mini album, lol!

I love the double-sided paper called Fun At The Park. The blue castle print is so pretty and the reverse side has every fun theme park icon you could possibly think of!

No mini would be complete without a pocket so I added a small one for the cute red polka dot tag. And ... can you find the adorable Polaroid shape sprinkle?!

For the cover of my album, I used the red and white polka dot print called Mini Dot (clever title), the wonderful castle Doodle-pops called Adventure Awaits and a few more fun fireworks. 
I hope my Mouse Ears Shaped Mini Album inspires you to create something magical with this fabulous Fun At The Park Collection!

Gosh, I'm so excited to share my first project made with the new Fun At The Park Collection! I am in love with this bright color palette and everything is fresh and happy! When I opened my box of goodies, the first thing that came to my mind was - Movie Night! So I went with that theme for my projects! We have been spending a lot of time at home watching movies, right? So why not make it fun for everyone! I made a party! This collection would be great for a Movie Party, an Oscars Party, or a Birthday Party. No limit to the creativity you can have with these fun supplies. I used the Fun At The Park Collection to create treat boxes and candy favors and a cute sign for the table...


You can find templates on the web to die cut out a popcorn box shape - so easy! One of the things I love about Doodlebug papers is that they are double sided. So whatever you make, it looks pretty on the other side (inside) too! I used polka dots for the popcorn box. I filled it with a cello bag and candies. I used the super cute buttons and twine to tie it off. I tucked in some accents attached to straws to make it more fun.


Here's my movie night sign! You could even make this into invitations - I cut the film strips from the 12x12 paper pack and added stars and hearts and fuzzy alphabets.


I also made a French fry box filled with candies.... I love that polka dot pattern on the inside! My movie night would certainly include all these things: popcorn, candy, hot dogs, and soda!! MMMMM.


 Easy and colorful individual treats! 




Now, who wants to party with me? Maybe we could watch my favorite movie of the year - Cruella! That's it for me today. I'll be back soon with another project made with Doodlebug FUN! Happy Crafting!

Other than creating layouts and mini albums, I LOVE making tassels to hang on my creations. For today's post, I made super cute charm tassels with paper beads and Doodle-Pops. 

I have been on vacation the last two weeks. When I came back, some packages had arrived and they contained clasps and chain links in a lot of different colors. I went through my Cute & Crafty collection and thought it would be fun, using the Doodle-Pops, combined with my new things, to create super adorable tassels. 

To start I chose all the things I would need to make three tassels in different colors. I gathered the clasps, chain links, rings, Doodle-Pops, Doodle Twine, Jewels and patterned papers in three different colors: pink, blue and yellow. 
Then I started assembling everything.

I created the paper beads myself, using the 6x6 patterned papers. To do that, I cut super thin and long triangles, a bit like stripes of paper, but in a triangular shape. Then I rolled them up, starting at the wide end. Done! It's that easy :) I made 15 beads, 5 for each tassel.

For the yellow and pink embellishment, I created fluffy tassels, using the Doodlebug Chunky Twine. For the blue one, I used a piece of ribbon with polka dots, included in the Sweet Shoppe Assortment (tutti fruitti). 

I also made tiny tassels out of paper to attach to the colored chain links and I adhered two big jewels to the white chain links. To attach the Doodle Pop, I adhered it to a piece of patterned paper, created a loop on top by punching a small hole and cut the sticker out, leaving a border.

I love how they turned out!!! I attached the pink one to my Doodlebug traveler's notebook and it looks adorable. You can use these to put on your mini albums, cards or just as a gift. 

Hope you like the idea and are inspired to make some too.  See you soon... :)
