Hi crafty pals! Wanda here, with another fun project made with the Lots of Love Collection! Today I decided to make some cards to share with you! These could be Valentine Cards, or Just Because cards! They have lots of colorful and fun elements and are sure to make anyone smile when they arrive in the mail. The Lots of Love Collection has so many design elements and I love all that color - grounded with black accents. I have a trio of cards today. All of them are made from white card bases in A2 size. I used the 6x6 paper pad for my backgrounds and then went to town with embellishments!

 All three cards have generally the same card layout. I used the Doodle Cuts Large Tags to die cut a white tag for each card. I used the Chunky Twine to tie on top of the tags. I used the design elements from the Chit Chat, Odds & Ends and Bits & Pieces packages. I also used black sprinkles for the flower centers. 


 I'm absolutely smitten with that tiny pink ladybug from the Doodle Pops!








 You make me smile! Can you think of some friends to send these cards to?!




The possibilities are endless for making cards using the Lots of Love Collection! So many adorable themes and alllll those pretty flowers. I'm ready for Spring now, too, how about you? It's been a pleasure sharing with you today. See you soon - and until then - happy crafting!

Are you a sucker for cuteness too... ? Everything mini sized is cute, right? :)  For this project, I created the teeny-tiniest thing I've ever done... super small coptic books using the envelope die from the Love Notes Doodle Cuts in the Lots of Love collection. 

When I saw the envelope dies in the collection, I was sold! I knew I needed to create something with them. I love to create coptic books and so I thought, it could be a cool idea to create super small ones. 

So to start, I used the die to cut out 12 envelopes from different patterned papers from the 6x6 paper pad.  Then I also cut out a few patterned paper rectangles and folded them to have "pages" to include in the album too. 

I then used embroidery thread and used the book binding technique to make coptic books out of the envelopes and pages. I also added some beads to the spine. 

To each envelope, I added some tiny tags and notes, I cut out from the 6x6 paper pad. I decorated the front with doodle pops, shaped sprinkles and stickers. I think they turned out super cute!!! :) They're such a sweet little gift for friends for Valentine's Day :)

I hope you like my cute mini books and are inspired to create some too. Thank you for stopping bye, see you soon!

When the Lots of Love collection came out, I fell in love with all its designs, but there was one product in particular that caught my attention, the new Hello There! Doodle Cuts because with them you can imagine and create great projects!

I decided to alter some acrylic boxes, decorating them with a beautiful rainbow and this cute cloud, both cut with doodlebug cardstock. I glued them together with pop dots to give the 3D effect.

I added more decoration with the shape sprinkles, since it totally gives shine to the project.

On the top I added a bow and as a tag, the beautiful envelopes cut using the new Love Notes Doodle Cuts, then knotted with twine thread.

These boxes are perfect for packaging a Valentine's Day gift. Thank you as always for stopping by, see you soon.

Raise your hand if you are always jotting down little notes/reminders for your self!  If you are like me, then there is plenty of post it notes close by.  Well,  I wanted to bring some of those notes onto a page; and as soon as I saw the new Love Notes Doodle Cuts and Lots of Love collection, I knew I could combine them in this page:

The small envelope and note dies in the Love Notes Doodle Cut were perfect to create all the small envelopes and notes from the 6x6 paper pad. I even trimmed a few of the cut apart journal cards from the 6x6 paper pad to work inside the envelopes.

Once, I had all the envelopes and notes ready, I created a vertical line of them on my layout.  Petite Prints are always the best way to add subtle color to the background. I wanted to focus on the color combination of soft pink and teal.

I added my photo to the center of the page, then used  the Love Notes DoodlePop to bring the idea of the page together.  All the new Chit Chat, Odds and Ends, and Bits and Pieces worked nicely together in clusters around the page.

With so much pattern in the envelopes, I decided to keep my title work simple. The My Type alpha are always a favorite font for title work.  All that it needed was a small sticker, and done!

What better way to add your journaling, than to write it in each of the little notes in the envelopes. I used each of the notecards to add some of the notes in my post if notes.   

I love how this turned out, and I hope that this inspires you to check the new LOTS OF LOVE collection and all the new DOODLE CUTS ... you will love them!  XO

Hi All! Today I am sharing a pocket letter I made using the new Lots of Love collection. This pocket letter is perfect for happy mail, where the front of the sheet is fully decorated and you can tuck in a note in the back or leave it blank for photos. 

I started with one of the cut apart sheets from the collection and trimmed down some of the images to 2.5 x 3.5". I alternated these sections with one of the striped 12 x 12 patterned papers. 

For the striped patterned papers, I embellished the sections using the odds & ends ephemera pack and the 12 x 12 sticker sheets. 

I added the Odds & Ends ephemera above the pockets as well. I used the Shape sprinkles to add some dimension and extra details. 

I finished off the pocket letter with red ribbon that has a couple rainbow shape sprinkles at the edges. 

Thanks for stopping by. Happy Crafting!

I was so excited to get my Lots of Love Box!  This collection is so cute... Doodlebug Valentine Collections are always among my favorites!  When I saw the sweet, little, smiling cups in the Odds & Ends I knew I wanted to make a 3D version to fill with treats.  Take a peek...

I altered a round box file from Lori Whitlock to make the cup.  I added a fun little handle and a strip around the top.  The faces are from the Lots of Love Cocoa SVG file.  The little heart was cut using the a heart from the Love Notes Doodle Cuts.  Here are some close ups...

I added a shaped heart sprinkle from the With all My Heart Shaped sprinkles to the paper heart and some regular sprinkles for the cheeks.

I wanted to add a little tag to each gift.  I used the Love Notes Doodle Cuts to cut the envelope and hole punched paper.  The sentiment is from the Treat Yourself Doodle Stamps.  To finish it up I added the cute little tea bags from the Odds & Ends and a smiling heart from the Happy Hearts shaped sprinkles. I tied it to the treat bags with some doodle twine.

I can't wait to send them off to my "little" Valentine and her roommate!  Have you made any projects using the new Lots of Love Collection?  Be sure to tag Doodlebug Design on Facebook and Instagram, we always love to see your creations!  That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek.

One of my favorite go to designs is a grid! There are so many different ways to create a grid on your page and today I wanted to share how you can use the new Love Notes Stand Alone die set to create a fun grid layout!

I picked out some papers from the Lots of Love 6x6 paper pad to die cut using the larger envelope from the Love Notes die. This die set is adorable and I think it is a must have from this collection!

Once all my envelopes were die cut I assembled them all and then laid them out on a piece of white cardstock that I trimmed down to 11.50x11.50. I adhered them all down with some adhesive and then matted the cardstock on some pattern papers from the Lots of Love collection.

The Love Notes Stand Alone die set also includes a die to cut out a piece of notebook paper to fit inside the envelope perfectly! I used some of the pattern paper to cut it out and stamped on it using the new Treat Yourself stamp set!

I used some of the Lots of Love Mini Icon stickers to embellish the inside and outside of the envelopes. I printed my photos out at home and in black and white. I trimmed them down to fit inside of the tiny envelopes and layered a die cut piece of paper behind them.

This layout was so much fun to create and I love how it showcases a lot of the pattern papers in the collection! The small envelopes are super cute and create a fun interactive grid!

To finish off my layout I added a large chit chat title piece to the bottom corner of the layout. I added foam adhesive to pop it up from the page and then added a Memories word sticker from the This and That sticker sheet.

Thanks so much for stopping by the Doodlebug Blog today! I hope you are inspired to create a grid layout! Make sure to check out the full Lots of Love collection!

In my family, the time between the New Year and early March is relatively quiet. We don't have any birthdays or extravagant holidays, so it is a nice time to craft and just catch up with friends and family. With the launch of Doodlebug's new Lots of Love collection, I knew this collection would be perfect to use to create some cards for just that purpose.

One of my favourite new additions in this collection are the Stand Alone Doodle Cuts so I decided to feature them on these cards. While I love that Doodlebug always creates a coordinating die cut set for their adorable stamps, I also love these stand alone dies that allow me to create some fun shapes that add a bit of texture and layers to my cards and feature the adorable paper prints that Doodlebug creates.

The Love Notes Doodle Cuts feature these adorable little envelopes in two sizes that are perfectly sized for greeting cards. And with a little piece of paper and some cute hearts, you can embellish to your hearts content.

The Hello There! set features a rainbow theme with added clouds, hearts and this great "hello" sentiment. The individual pieces of the rainbow will have you creating all sorts of variations featuring your favourite papers from Doodlebug - patterned or not! I happened to layer two cuts of the sentiment together just to give it a bit more pop on my cards.

And then the best part is that you can mix and match the two sets together as well and come up will all sort of fun combinations!

I am off to write some messages in these little cards to family and friends. And then, well, I might just head back to the crafty table to create some more of these cards!  Thanks for stopping by!
