Doodlebug Life

Doodlebug Design's albums are amazing.  
They are well-constructed, well-designed and beautiful to boot!
Now Doodlebug offers cool 4x6 Simply Put cards with their collections,
so they're perfect for album inserts, card fronts or on full-sized layouts.
For the next couple of weeks, the design team will be sharing their ideas of how to 
create a Project Life style album with all of the cute Doodlebug papers and accessories.  
I started mine with a few photos from our recent Spring Break cruise.

  For the full 8x8 page protectors I used 8x8 cardstock and then decorated with 
6x6 patterned paper from the paper pads!  I added the "Smile" bubble sticker to the outside
of the page protector...I love the way it looks :)

 See how cute the 4x6 card looks above the photo...I just added a sticker to it and slipped it
into the page protector.  For the side-strip, I cut down a piece of the "Take Note" paper and 
typed a little journaling onto it with an old manual typewriter. A happy Doodle Pop sunny sticker
was added to the outside of the page protector.

You can use the reverse side of the 4x6 card for the following page, or tuck in a new design.

There are loads of other ideas at the Doodlebug Design's Blog...come and see :)
Hope you have a wonderful new week!


  1. This looks awesome, Shellye! Love the concept!

Beautiful Birthday Shaker Card

Hello and welcome to my contribution to the  SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES and HERO ARTS BLOG HOP

For my project, I have chosen to make this cute shaker birthday card!

Before we get started on the detail, here is a list of supplies that I've used: From Scrapbook Adhesives: Keepsakes Envelope Mix (I used 4" X 3.5") Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4 in, Dual Tip Glue Pen, Crafty Foam Tape Black and the E-Z Runner Grand Refillable Dispenser with E-Z Runner Grand Permanent Dots Refill.  From Hero Arts: Dress Up Stamp and Cut and Kelly's Flags Stamp & Cut
To begin, I added a few star sequins directly to the sticky part of the Keepsake Envelope.
Next I sprinkled some round sequins inside of the pocket.
I used the Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4" to close up the pocket.
I cut a piece of patterned paper the same size as the pocket and mounted it to the sticky back of the pocket.  
After die-cutting the dress bottom from patterned paper, it was pleated along the score lines and then…
