Hello friends!  I'm always inspired by the adorable icons in every Doodlebug collection.  Some of my favorites in the Lots of Love collection are the cute rainbows so I decided to use the adorable Lots of Love Rainbow-2 SVG file to create the cover of a fun circle shaped album. 

I cut the rainbow pieces out of dot/stripe petite prints, and added lots of cute mini hearts  across the white stripe.  The clouds are from the odds & ends and I cut off the "raining hearts" so the clouds would fit.  An enamel sun and cloud added a little extra color and shine to the top portion of the cover.

For the bottom of the cover, I added the bubble gum heart pattern and a yellow border sticker from the This & That sheet to give a background behind the cute chit chat title and hearts.  Love all of that color!!

Inside the album, each 7" page was covered with patterns from the 12x12 papers.  That pretty floral design is one of my favorites!

I added the 3x4 mailbox card to the front of a folded card.  This card flips up for pictures or to add a sweet love note :). I used a smaller icon sticker for the packages ... don't they look cute next to the larger delivery truck?

Whenever I make my shaped albums, I pick the patterns for the front of each page first.  This way, when the pages are all fanned out, the layers are all different and super colorful!  Deciding on the papers is one of my favorite parts of creating an album, and with Doodlebug, every piece is so cute! 

I used bumblebee and pistachio petite prints for the pages above and below.  They provided a solid background so that the pattern mats would really pop off the page.  That plaid is another favorite!

Well I hope my circle-shaped album has inspired you to step "outside the box" and make something in a different shape!  And I've seen so many cute projects out there using the Lots of Love collection so be sure to tag Doodlebug and Artsy Albums so we can see what you're creating!!  Have a wonderful rest of your week everyone!
