Hello Friends! It's Conny here,  and today I'm sharing a 5" x 3 1/2" mini album- titled "Thanks for Brightening My Day" using the Over the Rainbow Collection and textured cardstock.

Let's get started! I started with (2) 5" x 3 1/2 " and (1) 1.5" X 3 1/2" chipboard pieces and covered them with Blush cardstock. Next, using the same cardstock, I cut one piece measuring 3 1/2" X 7", and placed it in the spine in the middle.  I used my bone folder to score the spine. After, I added the chipboard pieces on top, leaving an 1/8" inch border.

For the inside of the album, you will need two pieces of cardstock, the first one 10 1/2" x 3 3/8" - scored at 4 3/4" and 5 3/4" and one piece measuring 9 3/4" x 3 3/8" scored at 3 3/4" and 5 1/8".

The cover page came together quickly with the So Lucky Doodle Pop, cardstock stickers- icons, bits and pieces, enamel dots a chit-chat title and puffy stickers.

Inside the album, I added a few envelopes from the collection and four pages embellished with icons and stickers from the collection. I hope this project inspires you to create a mini album and we can't wait to see the projects you make using this beautiful collection!

One request I get on my membership site every month is for more classes with double-page, multi photo layouts.  I get it ... as scrapbookers, we take lots of pictures and it's nice to be able to get more than just a few photos on a page.  So today I have an idea for an interactive, multi-photo, two page layout using the Over the Rainbow collection!

For this mosaic style page, I layered four white card stock squares (5.75" x 5.75") on the super colorful stripe sheet called Over the Rainbow.  Then I added 28 pieces of pattern paper (1.25" x 1.25") around the outside of each card stock square.  Don't all of those pretty colors just make you happy?!

Inside the border of little squares, I added two flip-up cards (I call them flippies) that are 4" x 8" and scored/folded at 4" to create cards that can hold 2-3 photos each.  For the front of this one, I added a few cute odds & ends and little Spring Garden shape sprinkles, but you could also add another photo here.  The flippie below is a 4x4 card from the Sprinkles of Color sheet.

In the other two center spots, I added two more photo mats that measure 4" x 4".

For the second page, I adhered a strip of the stripe paper down the left side of the Rainbow Wishes sheet to tie the two pages together.  This page has 4 more photos mats and a cute spot for journaling all about the birthday photos.

Finally, I tucked the Chit Chat flowers and Happy Birthday banner up in the right corner, along with the adorable Hello Sunshine Doodle-Pops.  A few more Spring Garden sprinkles gave this page a little shine.  Love those!  So with these two pages, you'll be able to get 10 photos on your layout!  I hope this inspires you to use the Over the Rainbow collection on your next multi-photo pages!

Hello friends! Erica here with you today sharing a colorful 12x12 scrapbook layout using the Over The Rainbow collection and a large cut file!

When I saw this cut file I knew it would be perfect with the Over The Rainbow collection! I cut it out on some white textured cardstock from Doodlebug Design and backed it with Petite Prints that match the collection. The textured white cardstock is my favorite white cardstock to use with my cutting machine!

For my layout base I picked two pattern papers from the Over The Rainbow collection. The Rainbow Wishes paper was the perfect background for this colorful cut file. I trimmed it down to 11x11 and matted it onto the colorful Shine Bright 12x12 paper. To add some texture and to help frame the layout I added some stitching with my sewing machine. I used some pink thread to match the collection and it helps add another pop of color around the page.

I used foam adhesive all over the back of the cut file to pop it up from the layout base. For my photos I created two small photo strips of Liam Jay with his shamrock headband! He was super excited to get this and even more pumped up because it lit up! He is our big ball of energy and there is never a dull moment with Liam! I added the photos to the left side of the rainbow and added a chit chat banner under the photos.

I kept the embellishments light because I really wanted the photos and the rainbow to shine on this layout! The cute cloud die cuts were perfect to add around the page and I had to use one of the hot air balloons! To add some more color and texture to the rainbow I added some puffy hearts in the center.

This layout is full of color and joy just like our Liam Jay! I hope you enjoyed this layout using the Over The Rainbow collection and some Doodlebug Design Petite Prints! Head on over to my YouTube channel to see my process video.

I am a total creature of habit. When I go to make cards, out come the stamps and the Odds and Ends collections and I get to work. But every now and again I like to challenge myself to try something different. So today, I decided to see what kinds of cards I could come up with using Doodlebug's Stand Alone Doodle Cuts. Let's just say that a whole lot of fun ensued!


There are two sets of Doodle Cuts that coordinate with the Over the Rainbow set so I decided to use both and then mix and match!


I started by created the little gnome characters and then went from there. The most fun was designing their outfits. In fact, I changed them up a few times before I settle on the ones that you see.


It was a little bit like making paper dolls when I was a kid, and it was a blast! I often go for a similar effect with paper piecing stamps, but because of the size of these die cuts, I was able to utilize the patterns on the 6x6 paper more effectively because they are a bit bigger. then I just went to town creating mushrooms, flowers...


...and this adorable sun to create little scenes.


Oh, and then, because I couldn't resist the amazing Puffy Icons that coordinate as well, I used those to embellish the bottom of the envelopes that I was using for this card set. Puffy Stickers?!!! Oh yeah!


I can't wait to give this cute set away. I really love the dimension and bright colours that were created with this product. They really are "So Much Fun"!  Thanks for stopping by! Hugs,

Hey friends! Brianna Lepper here today sharing another layout using the adorable Over The Rainbow collection. When we were stationed in Hawaii a few years ago, we saw rainbows multiple times a day! Once we moved back to Louisiana for the second time, we didn't see them quite as often so when we finally got one, I just HAD to snap a photo of it! This collection is perfect to document such a gorgeous photo. Not only are there rainbow elements, but it also has a lot of "lucky" elements. So why not use both?! Here's my page:

I am loving all of the four leaf clovers in this collection and my crafty friend suggested I create my own using a heart punch. So I took a heart punch from my stash and punched a bunch of hearts using the green patterned papers in the 6x6 paper pad. Next, I punched out a small circle so that I could adhere the hearts to them. To finish them off, I cut out little stems and popped each one up on foam tape. They were so easy to make and turned out so cute!!

I used textured white cardstock as my base and matted it on the 12x12 Spring Garden patterned paper for some extra pops of color. For my title, I used a phrase from the Chit Chat packed and added onto it using the super cute Alphabet Soup stickers in Limeade, Cupcake, Bumble Bee and Swimming Pool. I adhered the second half of my title onto a couple of clouds that I drew and cut out by hand. I even added some ink to the edges along with some silver glitter for some sparkle!

Next, I matted my photo using more papers from the 6x6 paper pad and layered a few Bits + Pieces behind it. Both the "Happy Go Lucky" and "Garden Gnome" Doodle Pops were perfect additions to this page so I added them both! They are so fun and bring a bit of whimsy to this whole design.

I wanted to add extra four leaf clovers to my layout, so I took the "Lots of Love" Shape Sprinkles and adhered them around the page. They are so cute and added even more pops of green.

Here's one last look at this colorful page!

Thank you so much for stopping by today, I hope that I've inspired you in some way! Have you made your own four leaf clovers with a heart punch before? They're so fun and easy to make and they go so well with this collection! See you in my next post friends!

Spring is in the air! To celebrate, I have created a Spring themed layout using the AMAZING Over the Rainbow collection! This collection is so fun, cute and vibrant!

I chose a triangular design for my layout today and made good use of the 6' x 6' paper pad. I chose a variety of the gorgeous papers from the 6' x 6' paper pad, measured and cut them 4 of them to one size and then cut 4 more to a slightly smaller size. I then arranged and adhered them to a plain white cardstock background, adhering the larger ones first and then slightly offsetting the smaller ones over the top.

Once I was happy with how the papers looked, I trimmed down the white cardstock to measure 11' x 11' and adhered this to the Over the Rainbow striped paper. I also drew some faux stitching with a black journal pen through the centre of the triangle papers. In the top right corner I adhered my photo and layered one of the small note cards from the Bits and Pieces pack underneath. I popped up my photo using craft foam and added some Icon stickers, Sprinkles and Die-Cuts.

In the top left corner, I adhered the adorable sun again using craft foam to pop him up from the page, I also added a cloud die-cut here. The bottom right I added my title which is the Spring word from the Odds and Ends pack, I popped the title up using craft foam again and adhered another phrase banner piece, a heart sticker and a small flower die-cut.

The bottom left corner I adhered the gorgeous rainbow using craft foam and layered the phrase banner over the top. I love the Doodle Pops so much and just had to add that super cute mushroom to this area. I also adhered another small mushroom die-cut here and one of the cute butterfly stickers too. Lastly I stamped the date stamp and that finished my layout.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you are inspired to create using your Over the Rainbow collection too!

Happy St Patrick's Day crafty crew! It's Niella here on the blog today and I have a Lucky scrapbook layout featuring everything cheerful, colourful and fun to share with you! I've started with a sheet of 11 x 11" white textured cardstock that I backed with a sheet of 12 x12" Over the Rainbow Sweet Spring Garden patterned paper. Next I gathered the Over the Rainbow monochromic embellishments, as well as the matching doodle twine and strung it across the page to give a clothesline effect! Gold!

I had the luck o' the Irish putting this page together and you'll have a field day selecting your mono accents and scrap lifting this page. Can you spot the tiniest photo of my youngest being extra cheeky and screaming with happiness? He's my lucky charm(er)!

You could even add machine stitching if you like. I have, as I like the extra texture that it creates.

Try stringing the doodle twine through the mini tags and knot the ends; you can layer several tags from the 6x6" paper pad together as well and add extras like some of the This & That stickers and dot some sprinkles here and there. See how that mini doodle paperclip looks perfect holding that wee photo.

Add some tiny triangles for bunting along the doodle twine and use sprinkles and puffy stickers to decorate as well.

Super adorable + easy to put together because everything coordinates,  don't you think? Whatever you create, it'll be a pot of gold!

Thanks for popping by and may you find that pot of gold at the end of your rainbow today! Until next time; doodle-doo!

Today I'm sharing a layout with the super cute Over the Rainbow collection. I was inspired by the rainbow patterned paper (called Over the Rainbow, of course), I always am... :)

I love creating color blocking and color matching layouts.  I cut apart the stripes of the Over the Rainbow paper and then tore the ends. I tore each strip differently to make the strips different lengths. I then created a woven design and adhered the whole piece to my white cardstock.

Next, I added my photo to the design, matted it with a bit of patterned paper from the 6x6 paper pad.  I went through all the tiny embellishments and started sticking everything that color-matched to the different strips. I used stickers, sprinkles and jewels.

I also added the Shaker Pop Cloud, which I overlapped onto the photo. It's so cute... :)  For my title, I used two words from the Chit Chat die cuts pack. I trimmed the white borders a bit and added it using foam squares.

For the last pop of color, I used my watercolors to splatter some spots.

I think this layout is full of color, (of course...:) and looks soooo happy and fresh. A perfect start into spring.  Are you excited for spring too?  I sure am and I hope we'll have a lot of sunny days. See you soon...
