What's not to love about Doodlebug Designs' Lovebirds Collection?
Nothing that I can think of!  I had a ball creating this heart-shaped album with nothing
but goodies from Doodle Bug

I've had a package of chipboard 'conversation' hearts in my stash for quite a long time now.
They're a nice size and heavyweight and great for a mini album.

 After tracing and cutting out the heart shapes from different Lovebirds papers, I used 
a heart doily and a couple of oval die-cut shapes for the matting.  To achieve placement of 
the sticker letters, I always start with the middle letter and work out on either side.  I overlapped each
one a bit so that I wouldn't run out of room.

And you know I love trimming out the edges of the album with twine
as an extra-nice finishing touch!

Areas of journaling are an important aspect to mini least I think so!  
Whether it's a full page dedicated to journaling or just a side note, it's a good idea to make a 
spot somewhere.  Doodlebug collections give a variety of options to your noting needs :)

Fun around every corner!  Mini notecards and envelopes, heart-shaped pearls and gems, 
every color and pattern of washi under the sun.

Make a washi bow!  I applied a length of washi to a sheet of cardstock and then cut.
Using a stylus or pen, gently roll the washi-cardstock until you've formed two loops.  Just 
take a scrap piece and glue around the center.

I love adding little details like stitching X's with twine or creating a sweet border effect.
With a piercing tool, mat, decorative template, twine and a large needle, you can create all sorts of 
amazing designs to make your mini album or project unique!

There's also a give-a-way happening at the Doodlebug Blog:

♥A little about me♥  I'm currently designing for Doodlebug Design and Scrapbook Adhesives and have had the honor of serving on 20+ manufacturers or retailer  design teams over the years!  When I'm not working as a school administrative assistant, you can almost  always find me crafting cuteness for my Etsy Shop: Dot & Whimsy :) Aside from paper-crafting, I also enjoy making jewelry, cross-stitch, embroidery,  home decorating, reading and watching reality TV.

A SN@P December Daily

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee! Isn't this just the greatest idea, ever?  (scrapbooking wise, anyway) Welcome to my contribution to the  SIMPLE STORIES  DECEMBER DAILY BLOG HOP I'm so glad that you're joining us...I can't wait to hop around myself and see how the girls have decorated their SN@P Albums December Daily style :)
**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
