MERRY CHRISTMAS TO EVERYONE!  I hope you all spent beautiful holidays with your loved ones and took tons of photos (which I often forget...) to scrapbook later.  Here's a layout using the new Candy Cane Lane Shadowbox Insert kit and an old photo I took with a friend.

I wanted to create something a bit different with the products of the kit. I decided to make a thick frame and then added the stickers to that. 

I cut out the frame from white cardstock and tried to fit all the stickers from the Icons sticker sheet. And I was able to include almost all of them. Then I  added some of the sprinkle trees and mini jewels. To make the frame stand out, I scribbled a line all around, with a pencil, and I adhered it to the paper, using foam tape. 

I matted my photo with different patterned papers from the Candy Cane Lane collection, and adhered the photo onto the layout. For my title, I used a sentiment from the Chit Chat pack and added letters from the Alphabet Soup puffy alpha stickers in ladybug. 

To add a bit of color, I used my watercolors in pink, yellow, blue and teal, to add around the frame and photo. 

I hope you like the layout and are looking forward to create your own Christmas layouts, using Candy Cane Lane. Have a great week and Happy New Year! :)

What would a Christmas be without those special handmade details? Today I made a box, it is a wooden box that will serve to document those special Christmas moments in frames I created for the sides.

The special thing about project is the pine tree-shaped cup that simulates a town center Christmas Tree at the top of the box. Such a fun idea, don't you think?

The entire project is decorated with Doodlebug's Candy Cane Lane Collection.

I say goodbye as always I hope you are inspired by my work. I take this opportunity to wish you a Happy New Year 2023 full of health and much success!

I am sure that all of you have lots of memories of Christmas ( past and present) to document!  Today, I want to give a bit of inspiration featuring the sweet Candy Cane Lane in my December 6x8 album.

There is so much cuteness in this collection that it was so easy to mix and match pieces in the spreads, and put them together in no time!

My first spread is all about my nephew enjoying Gingerbread  decorating time while experiencing Covid.   I stared by bringing a bit of red accents to the page to complement the colors in the picture.

I love the cut apart journal cards, especially when I have lots of story writing to add.   I followed the design on the other page by repeating the colors and look  of the page.

For my next page, I am mixing patterned paper with all the embellishments of the collection to document all the yummy treats of the season!

This time, I am creating a smaller title page from patterned paper, then adding a bit of interest with the embellishments of the collection.    That cute little driving Santa was perfect!

For this part of the spread, I simply framed the photos with patterned paper making sure that there was plenty leftover to add my journaling after.  A few extra small pieces complete the spread!

I hope these give you a bit of inspiration for your December documenting with the gorgeous Candy Cane Lane collection.  XO

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday!  We are still in the swing of things with another family party today!  Before the craziness set in I got to play with the Candy Cane Lane Collection.  I knew my project would post after Christmas so I wanted to do a New Year's themed project.  I came up with this fun little snowman pop up card.  Take a peek...

For my snowman, I used the Snow Sweet Doodle Cuts.  I cut off the Christmas tree top of the die cut, and added a little square sign in it's place.  The trunk of the tree worked perfectly as a sign post!

I added some transparency half circles to my card inserts so that I could add a whole "flurry" of the acetate snowflakes from the Bits & Pieces pack.  I love how they look like they're floating.  To attach them I used some clear glaze.  I also added the two birdies from the Love You Deerly Doodle Pop.

The happy on my sign is from the Happy Birthday Doodle Stamp set.  For the year, I used the date stamps from the Handwritten Calendar Doodle Stamps.  I stamped them in white, and added some white embossing powder so they would stand out a bit more.

I finished the base with a few snowflakes from the Frosted Flurry shaped sprinkles.  

I hope that everyone has a Happy and Healthy New Year!  I will be back in 2023 with more Doodlebug goodness! Thanks for stopping by to peek!

Hi friends! Traci here and today I have a cute and very simple project that uses the adorable recipe cards from the Candy Cane Lane collection. I made a mini album for your Christmas recipes that keeps them safe and organized. This would also be a really great gift idea for someone else this holiday season. 

To make this, I started with a 4x6 black and white check Flipbook. On the cover, I layered white card stock and the pretty red Holiday Lights paper. Then, I added a 6 3/4" x 2" strip of the green Tree Festival paper across the middle and embellished with lots of cute trees from the mini icon stickers. 

In the center, I used a 3" punch to cut the scalloped circle out of white card stock, a 2 1/2" punch for the black circle, then layered the adorable snow man sticker from the This & That sheet on top.

The little snowman on the bow is a sticker from the puffy shapes icons. I love these so much, I think I've used them on every project this season, lol! I created and printed the label from my computer using Lori Whitlock's Cutie Pie font and added a few ladybug enamel dots to finish it off. 

Just inside, I added a little journaling card. It's the perfect spot for a note, especially if this album is a gift for someone. The presents are die cuts from the Odds & Ends and look so cute layered with a bit of foam tape.

Next, I added the recipe cards to the clear page protectors. So easy. What a cute and simple recipe book!

The recipe cards come in a pad of 36 cards and each one has a wonderful little icon from the collection. They have space for the Ingredients on the front and the directions on the back.

I hope this project inspires you to create something wonderful with the Candy Cane Lane Collection. Thanks for stopping by the blog today and Merry Christmas!

Hey friends! Erica here with you today to share a 12x12 scrapbook layout featuring the Candy Cane Lane collection!

One of my favorite types of layouts include large title cut files! They make it quick and easy to create a layout and your title is all ready to go!

You get to highlight as many of the pattern papers as you want helping to bring lots of color and pattern to your layout! Picking the papers to back the cut files is one of my favorite things about the cut files!

I tend to stick with 4 or 5 different patterns for longer titles and 2-3 for shorter title cut files. There are no rules when backing cut files but these are just things I have stuck with and I always love how they turn out! Lots of fun color and pattern without being to busy.

This Better Not Pout cut file is just adorable and went perfect with the Candy Cane Lane collection! We are so excited to Christmas and counting down the days! It is really exciting to see our youngest just loving every minute and how magical everything is to him right now!

Once my title cut file was back it was easy to add it to some beautiful Candy Cane Lane 12x12 papers for the base and embellish around the page. I used a lot of the mini icon sticker and icon stickers from the Candy Cane Lane collection. Here is a look at my final layout!

Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today and I hope you all have a wonderful rest of your week!

Just before Halloween, I decided that I needed to find a way to display all my Doodle Pops since, well, I usually hoard them.  So I created a little cube that allowed me to feature them AND switch them out for the season.  So, you guessed it - it was time to switch them out for the new holiday season. Good thing I had some new Candy Cane Lane collection Doodle Pops on my crafty table!   

Just like last time, I simply took some of the adorable 12x12 papers and layered them with some cardstock to create a framed look.  Then each Doodle Pop got it's own little space on one side - attached to the cube, really simply, with the mini paper clip.  



This time though, I decided to see if I could create a topper that had a bit more presence.  I tented some of the 12x12 paper and then attached a sentiment from the Chit Chat pack with a bit of foam adhesive. I also decided to finish off the sides with a die cut from the Odds and Ends pack.  It sits on the top of cube really simply with some coordinating washi tape so I can switch it out as needed.  


I do have to admit that it is still hard to use these Doodle Pops, but I really love seeing them all matted and featured on the cube.  I have a feeling that this set is going to stay on the cube well into the new year!  Thanks for stopping by!  Hugs,

Hello my Doodlebug friends! Wanda here today to share another project with the super fun Candy Cane Lane Collection! Can you believe it's Christmas week? I hope you and your family have a wonderful holiday! My shadow box I am sharing today is up on the shelf in my craft room to bring some cheer. But it would also be great in the entry way or any room that needs fun and joy! I used the new Candy Cane Lane Shadow Box Kit and the brown frame to put this together. If you haven't made a Doodlebug Shadow Box yet, I really recommend it! I guarantee you will have some fun crafting! 

Here is my finished shadow box. I splattered on some white paint to make it look snowy and artsy! I used some stickers and embellishments to add a bit of extra interest to the bottom of the frame. I always like to add some matching decorations to my frame! It's hard to see, but I backed the vellum panel with blue snowflake 12x12 paper from the Candy Cane Lane Collection.


I just adore all the little houses in this kit!! I want to live in a pretty Christmas house! You can see that I also splattered white paint onto my finished panel. I used Diamond Stickles to add glittery accents to the rooftops and other areas. 


 So many pretty, sparkly gems in this kit - it makes it come alive and shimmer!




The color palette in this kit is just so cheery and sweet. I do love a pop of pink or aqua in with my Christmas colors! No one does it better than Doodlebug.




Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to come! Thank you for allowing me to come into your craft room all year and share my love of Doodlebug with you! See you soon!
