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!

♥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. But enough about little 'ole me...let's get on to the give-a-way!
With Valentine's Day right around the corner, I set out to find the perfect curation  of all things "red" and "love" in my stash.  The end result is this sweet ♥LOV…

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.
