Okay, let me tell you a secret. Crafting with the new Fun at the Park collection is FUN! In fact, it is almost as fun as going to the park. No, really! The colours, the icons, the characters - it really has brought me a lot of joy this month (and it is a whole lot cheaper than actually going to the park - especially for this Canadian).


So I decided to put the collection to good use on a set of gender neutral spanner cards - because you know what else is fun? Fun fold cards like spanner cards, of course!


Not only are the colours and patterns in this collection perfect for any gender and really, any occasion, there are all sorts of embellishments like the Paper Frills that really dress up elements on fun fold cards.


Crack open the Odds and Ends pack and peruse the characters to your hearts content. Move over Mr. Mouse - there are some cute Doodlebug characters in town! I chose the popcorn machine, camera and ice cream stand as my focal points, but with so many shapes to choose from in this set, there are so many options.


Add a little stamped sentiment from the Food at the Park stamp set and your cards come together just like that! Colourful, cute fun and ready for any special person in your life!


Hmmm...I wonder if I can arrange a Meet and Greet with one of the Doodlebug characters! In fact, maybe it's time for a Doodlebug Theme Park! Can you imagine the fun we would have there?  Thanks for stopping by!

Hey guys! Today, I'm sharing a cute 12x12 Disney themed layout I made with some photos of my granddaughter and a few of her new friends. The Fun At The Park collection was perfect. I love the bright colors and cute papers! This page came together pretty quickly thanks to the 12x12 print called Luggage Tags. đź’—

I started with the red and white polka dot print called Mini Dot as the base, then added the black and white card stock. I liked how the white dots from the print lined up perfectly around the edge. They reminded me of Hollywood lights!

I love the tags from the 12x12 print called Luggage Tags so, I chose 8 of them and cut them out. There are actually 18 to choose from and they're ALL adorable! Then I used my hole punch to cut holes in the top of each one.

Since Rylee loves Minnie and Mickey, I chose those photos and attached them to two of the tags. Then I pulled some chunky Doodle twine through each row and knotted the ends.

I chose the "unforgettable" and "happy" stickers from the This and That and the "adventure" die cut from the Chit Chat. Since my family has always lived close enough to Orlando to drive, the "Are we there yet?" tag seemed very appropriate! I even love the little Let's Go license plate.

To finish it off, I embellished the page with a few hearts and stars from the Odds and Ends, Chit Chat and Bits and Pieces. They made it feel a little magical, don't you think?
This page was simple, fun and you can decide how many pictures to add. I hope it inspires you to create something wonderful with this amazing Fun At the Park Collection!

Hi Doodlebug Friends! I'm here today with another project from the awesome Fun At The Park Collection! This collection is brilliant! It's perfect for capturing those park memories, and planning parties, and TRAVEL! So many of the elements are perfect for vacation scrapbooks! I've made a mini Summer Vacation Album today to share with you. I used my Cinch to bind the book together. All the elements are from the Fun At The Park Collection. The finished album is 4.5" x 4/5" big. I used both 6x6 patterned papers and 12x12 patterned papers. Then I used all the things to decorate my book! Let's look!

Here's the cover - it makes me smile. I used black eyelets on the outside edges so I could wind some Chunky Twine through to close the book with a bow. I matched the papers with black cinch bindings. 


 Here's the back of the album.


 That little seagull is so adorable!!




 Here are all the inside pages.... First up is a tag bound into the book and some places for photos....


 I love this smiling postcard paper! Oh, and don't get me started on those polka dots! 


 I tucked in a glassine envelope from my stash - perfect for saving tickets and memories...




Places for notes and photos.... I love to take photos with my Instax camera - they are small and fit perfectly into our mini albums.




 The last page and the back inside cover....


 The smiling cameras get me every time. LOVE them!


Thanks for spending some time here with me on the Doodlebug Blog! I'll be back soon with a new project! In the meantime - happy crafting! XO

What a fun new collection to work with!!!  I was so pleased when I saw the new Doodlebug collection. I have many theme park photos that I want to scrap and this collection is just perfect for it! :)  So for my very first layout with Fun at the Park I wanted to scrap some photos I took two years ago, when I visited Disneyworld in Orlando. I had this cool photo of myself, dressed in black and red with the castle in the background and I thought that it was, of course, just perfect for this collection. 

I wanted to make a Mickey head, because I'm wearing Minnie ears on the photo. I started by drawing half of the shape on a white sheet of paper. Then I folded the paper and cut it out, so that the shape of the head would be symmetrical. I traced it on four different patterned papers from the collection, cut them out and then cut out the inner part, so that the shapes would only be frames of around 1cm thickness. Then I took them to my sewing machine and sewed around them with matching colors and using a gold thread for the black head.

For my background, I used blue gelatos and a baby wipe to create this hazy and soft base for my mickey head. I also added blue and gold splatters. When that was completely dry, I started adding my shapes. I adhered the black and blue ones using liquid glue and putting them directly onto the paper. Then I added the yellow and the red ones, using foam squares. 

I matted my photos on a white with polka dots patterned paper and adhered them to the layout first thing,  to be able to see exactly where I had the space to put my embellishments. I went through the die-cuts and the stickers and chose popcorn, birds, a coke bottle, ice cream, a Minnie bow, a sun, a camera, a palm tree... to add to the frame. I also used a castle to put on the inside of the frame. It matched my photos so well :)

Then I created my title, using a Chit Chat die-cut and some alpha stickers in black and red. To finish this layout, I added stars, enamel dots and jewels all around the Mickey head frame and then I also added some tangled thread in three places. 

I hope you like the layout and are excited to start working with this super fun collection. I LOVE it... even though there's no pink in it and that means A LOT!!! :) Thank you so much for stopping by and see you soon!

The Fun at the Park Collection was a great surprise!  As soon as Doodlebug released it I fell madly in love with its designs!   I am a big fan fan of Mickey and all his friends, HAHA! With this collection we can create an endless number of fun thematic projects, don't you think?

For my first project, I came up with the idea of creating a surprise box as the title of the post says. Here in Mexico, the place where I live, charms or pendants are very fashionable, we make them with different materials and place them on the spine of our scrapbooking notebooks or mini albums.

The box I made is to store my charms or it also can be used as a gift or happy mail for a friend.

Inside the box are divisions in which to store various materials, such as color chains and product beads that can be used to create the charms.   The box is decorated with the Fun at the Park collection. The shaker charms are created with cutouts of Mickey and Minnie from Silhouette.

I love using the coordinating petite prints to create bases for these silhouettes.

I say goodbye as always hoping that my work will fill you with a lot of creativity and inspiration. See you soon!!

We all have those special memories from  our visits to our favorite amusement parks. Well, the new FUN AT THE PARK collection is just the perfect reason to revisit those happy moments.  

One of my most favorite papers has to be "Say Cheese"; the film strips are perfect spot to add lots of photos.  This time, I cut a few of them, and lay them on my background.  A bit of mixed media on the page, just adds that halo of color around the photos.

I matted my pictures with a paper from the 6x6 paper pad, and placed them atop the film strips.   All the cute icons and sentiments layered seamlessly behind the photos.

Of course you all recognize that famous ride. Well, I  pull some of the smaller teacup icons to help me document the story. The color palette of this collection is just so perfect, it makes it so easy to embellish your pages.

This is probably the cutest title work ever!  And the easiest, too.  I just mixed some Chit Chat,  Bits and Pieces, and those adorable tea cups on one large cluster.  Just love this!

I just love how this page came together in a a short period of time! The new FUN AT THE PARK is sure to help you document those fun filled memories!

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!
