Special Delivery Memory Album File Box

 Combining two chipboard shapes and a paper box= this adorable SPECIAL DELIVERY Memory Album File Box! 


Start with your favorite diaper shaped svg file, template or die-cut; visit Lori Whitlock to find a full array of Doodlebug svg files! 

The diaper shapes used for my project measure 5.5"X4".  After dressing the two shapes in patterned paper, they were attached to the front and back of a 3.5"X3.5"X2" box.

The inside of the box was filled with twelve decorated tags that measure 3"X4.5".  I used the 6X6 paper pad to cut the tag shape and then layered it onto a white die-cut shape.

The tags were numbered 1-12 months using the die cuts from the Chit Chat pack.


I die-cut three duck shapes and attached them to wooden clothespins; they look so cute peeking up at the top of the tags.  To the other tag tops, I added bits of ribbon or shaped Cute Clips!



Sprinkles and Doodle Pops, Odds & Ends and Stickers completed each of the tags.




Photos and journaling can be added to the fronts and backs of the tags; extra photos can also be filed between the tags by months! Such a sweet keepsake gift for a new mom or grandma :)

Special Delivery Welcome Signage

 Welcoming a little one to the world? Today I'm sharing a "Special Delivery" sign that can be hung on mom's hospital door and then in baby's room! 


For this particular sign, I used a 12X15 premade wooden palette sign; you could also use a heavy sheet of chipboard or a solid wood piece.

Because the slats on the palette were horizontal, I cut strips of paper in the same fashion.  I trimmed each strip to slighter smaller than each slat so that some of the wood would show through.

From The Dollar Tree I found this mini chalkboard that measures 6X7.5".  After adding pom trim around the backside of the board, I adhered it to the center of the palette using foam adhesive tape.

I used borders strips from the collection's sticker sheet and Skinny alphabet stickers to add the information to the board.

To the top of the chalkboard I attached a bow and a small cluster of die-cuts and Doodle Pops!


I pulled several different animal die-cuts and created a little parade at the bottom!  Next, I layered on the smaller star and heart die-cuts, stickers and Doodle Pop pieces with foam adhesive.  

I finished the sign off with a few Sprinkles and a button for the middle of the bow!
I hope you enjoyed this idea for putting together a quick welcome sign and will give it a try if needed :)

Bundle of Joy Brag Book Gift Set

New moms or grandmas would love to receive a handmade
brag book featuring the new "Bundle of Joy" Collection by

Along with the brag book, I also stamped, colored and embellished little accent pieces with the "Nursery Friends" and "Bundle of Joy" Doodle Stamps & Cuts.  



After die-cutting each piece, I layered on a smaller die-cut piece (mini hearts, stars, flowers, etc.) using a small piece of foam.  Lastly, I used various sizes and colors of Mini Jewels to accent!  
I also die-cut a matching shape from white cardstock and then glued to the backs of each piece.  This allowed me to hide the bleed-through of the Copic Markers. 




I purchased a plain 4X6 photo album from The Dollar Tree and cut swatches of patterned papers to place inside of each sleeve. The pages were decorated on the outside of the sleeve with die-cuts, stickers, sprinkles, etc.





When attached the journal cards and large die-cuts to the front of the plastic sleeve, I made a score line so that the pieces can easily fold back to display the photo.


On the cover, I machine-stitched a journal card and border stickers to the paper before inserting it inside of the sleeve.  The outside of the cover was embellished with a sticker added with foam, sprinkles and a small Doodle Pop flower!

Be sure to add additional Sprinkles, die-cuts and stickers to the gift...mom or grandma will be in love!

Thanks for joining us today!

Bar-B-Cute Pocket Mini-Mini Book

If you have the "Bar-B-Cute" 6X6 Paper Pad, then you don't need much else to craft this crazy-cute Pocket Mini-Mini Album!
-For the YOUTUBE Video, please visit my channel-

Along with the 6X6 paper pad, you'll also need: smooth white cardstock, twine, 12X12 sheet of patterned paper and any embellishments that you'd like to use!

I took eight sheets of different patterns from the paper pad and prepared them.  First, I scored each paper in half vertically; turning the paper, I next scored at 4".  Keep in mind that the bottom 2" will be folded up to form the pocket, so make sure the design won't be upside down.  

As above, cut a "V" along the bottom 4" SCORED line.  This will allow the pockets to fold up without bunching in the middle. 

Cut 1.5"X1" strips for each pocket; this will be the gusset.  Fold the strips in half so you'll have a 1.5"X0.5" strip.  Attach the strip to the outer edge of the pocket flaps.  



Once you have all of your pocket pages prepped, create an accordion strip to attach the pages to.  Cut white cardstock to 4"X8.25".  Score at every 1/4".  Use liquid glue or a1/4" tape to adhere to the pages (front and back) inside of the accordion folds.  Also, make sure to leave the front and back flaps open so that they can be attached to the cover. 



Next, I prepared the base cover from an 8"X4" strip of white cardstock.  I scored the cardstock at 3.25" and 4.75".  Above you will notice that I attached that front accordion flap to the cardstock.  
The white cardstock cover was then covered with a larger strip of patterned paper.  Using regular Doodle Twine, I stitched down three areas (of the accordion) to the spine to help hold in place.  

Now, let's walk through the pages!  Again, I used die-cuts, enamels, stickers, and leftover strips of paper to complete the pages. For the tags, I used the Large Tags Doodle Cuts to die-cut from the smooth white cardstock.













How much fun is that!  You could also think about building the album and letting the kids decorate and journal for a cute summer keepsake :)
