Doodlebug ‘insta-life’ album! Tips & Tricks

Hello, everyone! I’m so excited to show you the start of my fun ‘insta-life’ album! Smart phone photography is so quick and easy and so ‘in’ right now along with the popular Instagram app. I love sharing my photos on Instagram (follow me at happylifecraftywife), but sometimes it’s nice to have those photos in print, right? Well, I recently ordered a Canon Selphy CP 900 and it flawlessly prints 4×4″ Instagram photos. The quality is fantastic. Now that I have all these photos in print, I need to do something with them! That’s where the ‘Project Life’ Scrapbooking style comes in. I took my Doodlebug Swimming Pool Storybook 8×8 album and decided to use it just for my Instagram prints! It’s PERFECT!!! The Doodlebug Simply Put journaling cards make this one colorful and cute album.

To personalize this album a bit I created a vinyl decal. I used a free font called ‘Lobster 1.4′. It’s one of my favorite fonts right now. I cut this decal with orange Silhouette vinyl. The vinyl went on to my Storybook album perfectly!

When you open the album you’ll see a small 4×4″ screen shot of my Instagram account. I will probably switch this out every few months and just layer them over one another to document changes in followers, my profile photos, etc.

Behind the profile screenshot I added a divider pocket that I cut with my Silhouette Cameo. Looks awesome in those cute Dooodlebug ‘Take Note’ papers, doesn’t it? The pocket holds a printed Simply Put journaling card. I added a die cut tab to it with a button.

Pull it out and here’s what you see:

(Yes, my kids love instagram, too!) Do you like look of the PRINTED journaling card? I will have a short tutorial at the end of this post to show you how I did it!

When you turn the pocket divider, you’ll come to the first page. This one has 4 pockets that are 4×4″. This is my FAVORITE layout to use. I kept this page simple with a Simply Put card and some photos with a few stickers and a penguin Doodle-Pop. I whipped this up in no time! I love that the pocket pages and Simply Put cards make it SO easy to document everyday life.

The next page is a full 8×8 sleeve. I die cut a big Instagram camera and made it ‘interactive’ by adding a Doodlebug chunky brad to the lens to turn out of the way to expose a super cute picture of my son. Fun, right?

Another turn of the page and there’s a simple divider with the title of my album, ‘insta-life’. Just a touch of Doodlebug washi tape and a homemade flair badge to match.

Now for the last page (for now). I did a little die cutting here and used a Simply Put card. For the bottom 4×6 pocket I added a Doodlebug mini note card to create a simple interactive piece. I adhered the back of the card to my paper, trimmed a small photo to fit, then added some Doodlebug twine to close it. Untie it to see the cute photo! You can do this and add some journaling inside the card. I kept it simple with a sticker.

Here’s a list of the Silhouette cutting files I used:

 

Now for a quick tutorial to print on your own Simply Put cards!

  • STEP 1: Create a blank page in your editing program sized roughly to the area you will want to print on. This will vary depending on the size of your cards used, graphics on the card, etc. Once you have your text perfect, print it out onto a plain white paper.
  • STEP 2: Use a bit of double sided adhesive to layer your journaling card over the printed text.
  • STEP 3: Showing the journaling card layered over text. *TIP: Holding the paper and journaling card over a light box or window will help in lining it up or you can just eye it.
  • STEP 4: PRINT! Be sure to insert your paper into your printer the correct way so it feeds properly. I may, or may not have, printed on a card upside down the first time..

That’s it! VERY easy! I personally do not care for my writing so I will print on my journaling cards anytime I can… and being I don’t have a typewriter yet, this is the best way to do it. Plus you can change up your fonts and text colors which is really fun.

 

I hope you’ve enjoyed this ‘insta-life’ post and leave here with several ideas on incorporating your Doodlebug Design products into your own albums!I’d LOVE to hear what you think, if you have any tips to ‘pocket style’ layouts, etc.

 

See ya!

Doodlebug pairs up with Kiwi Lane!

Hello, friends!

Have you noticed that the Doodlebug team has been sharing their projects this week featuring Kiwi Lane templates? The Doodlebug blog has been packed full of inspiration!

 

I kept it simple this week and created a little baby girl gift box topper using Doodlebug’s ‘Sugar & Spice’ collection. The gift box topper can double as a decoration, tag or a card!

I took one of the flower templates and made it into a little sun! I kept it off to the side to leave a bit of room to write a ‘To and From’ or a little note on the pink stripe paper.

I made the grass curve up a little for some dimension.. and how cute is that giraffe?

I ‘unstuck’ the clothing stickers by adding powder to the back, and then hung them onto twine. I thought this was really cute!

 

That’s it! I am keeping this short and sweet today! (Can’t get much ‘sweeter’ than Doodlebug, right?!)

Have a great weekend!

Doodlebug ‘Take Note’ – Altered Clipboard

Lookie here! I have another Doodlebug project to share! I have been so excited to share this one. I created an altered clipboard with the fabulous ‘Take Note’ collection. I think this is my favorite from the new Doodlebug collections. The rainbow colors with touches of gray are fantastic! I love the whole ‘office’ type of theme it has.

I gotta admit, when I was making this project I was kinda worried about how it would come out. When I think ‘altered clipboard’ I think of more of a vintage style to it. But hey, it came together pretty darn cute with the bright ‘clean’ design. What do you think?

I LOVE the new mini pockets! And a mini pocket in the fabulous rainbow chevron print.. even better!

Lots of cute details here..  I layered on the paper, simply put journaling cards, stickers, doodle-pops, buttons, and some washi tape.

 

Be sure to stop by the Doodlebug Blog to check out the GIVEAWAY and see what the rest of the design team made! Super cute stuff, people!

Also.. although I PROMISED a new ‘What I’m Working With’ video this week… It’s not happening. *insert sad face here* This spring break thing is sucking up my time.. I need to figure out what I am going to do come summer… or invest in some lights to use for filming. I’m sorry. Life happens. I actually am about to head out the door to bring my girls for haircuts and get some last minute Easter stuff. I can’t believe I haven’t even bought a dye kit yet.. Usually I’m so on top of the whole ‘holiday’ thing. I’m such a slacker. *hangs head*

See ya later!! Thanks for stopping by!

‘POP’ on over! – Doodlebug Design Stars & Stripes

Hello, lovelies! Today I have a fun ‘pop’ themed project to share with you all. All us Doodble DT girls have been busy bees creating fun projects using all the NEW collections! We’ve featured Flower Box, Fruit Stand, Stars & Stripes… and this week we are featuring Take Note! Oh, yes! I LOVE the Take Note colection! If you want to see it up close, check out the full video I did RIGHT HERE.

 

Since I am a week late in getting this posted, chances are (if you follow Doodlebug.. and you SHOULD!) you’ve seen this already.

So, my inspiration for this ‘pop’ project was one little Doodle-Pop sticker.

I thought to myself that it would be sooo cute to alter some soda bottles. They HAD to have red soda in them though.. so I sent my hubby on a mission. He’s such a good sport. Thankfully we found some red soda in our small town. I was shocked. MY town had something I needed?.. Unheard of. Really.

After I altered the soda bottles I just felt it needed more… and I have this ‘itch’ to use all my product on one project, LOL! (not really.. but sometimes it seems that way!). So I created a ‘pop’ theme and made a popcorn box and a little invitation. Perfect! I  am so happy with how it came out with all it’s Doodle-buggy cuteness.

Don’t eat any of that popcorn. I popped it almost a week before taking final photos, lol. It’s quite stale.

What do YOU call ‘soda’? We had a little discussion in the DB DT group.. I’ve always called it soda. Some call it ‘pop’.. and others call ALL soda ‘coke’.  Or.. maybe you call it carbonated sugar. lol. (I don’t care for soda at all)

The mini pinwheels are SO adorable! I love how they are already cut and you can easily put them together. Pinwheels are such a sweet spring/summer decoration.

The mini notecard (create-a-card) was PERFECT for the invitation! How cute would this be to bring to  a neighbor’s house to invite them over for some BBQ?…

Just make sure you use FRESH popcorn… or.. if you’re my neighbor. Cookies.. yes, cookies are always good..

 

As you can see this is a fabulous collection!  View the entire collection RIGHT HERE.

 

See ya later! And since I haven’t spammed it in awhile, if you haven’t already, please ‘like’ my Facebook page! It’s a good way to follow my blog and get all the updates.. plus I like to have other random chit-chat there that doesn’t happen on my blog.

Gettin’ fruity! A bushel basket with 3D fruit & mini note cards!

This week on the Doodlebug Blog (be sure to stop by the DB blog for a GIVEAWAY!!) we are featuring the delicious FRUIT STAND collection! This collection is SO cute! LOVE the pops of purple, the little cute fruits, everything! I could just eat it all up! Nom-nom-nom.

*smiles* do I have any Doodle-Pops stuck in my teeth?…

 

So, of course with this collection I right away think FRUIT! So I wanted to make a fruit basket.. then decided to make little note cards for them to make it a little more special and unique.

Now, seriously.. is that not adorable?… I really think it’s one of my favorite projects so far this year!

I used Doodlebug’s Create-a-Card system for my note cards. Quick? Easy? Cutenes overload? check. CHECK!

That cherry card is my fav! I LOVE that Doodle-Pop sticker. The ‘So Sweet’ sentiment is done with rub-ons.. which I’ve come to.. you guessed it, LOVE! lol

I stuck a brad over a button here… kinda cute, eh?

There’s another Doodle-Pop! (the sun.. so cute!) ’Sweet Summer’ flags stuck onto wood picks and tucked behind the bow. These cute fruits sure do make this a SWEET project.

 

To make this sweetness yourself, here’s what you’ll need:

I believe that’s everything! You can also make this your own twist with what you have on hand!

OK my crafty friends.. I’m outta here! As always, thank you for stopping by! Let me know what you think! Are YOU crafting for summer yet?… It just snowed over here and I’m already working on 4th of July stuff! Crazy-sauce right there.. LOL! I’m also about to work on some Halloween cards to submit for publishing. This off season crafting feels odd.. but it’s fun!

See ya!

An altered embroidery hoop with brand NEW Doodlebug ‘Flower Box’ collection

Hello crafty friends!! This week on the Doodlebug Blog we are sharing some amazing projects with the NEW Flower Box collection!

A gorgeous color palette with a sweet touch of ‘melon’ which I love! Such a rarely seen color it seems… at least on papers. You’ll also get a yummy woodgrain fix with this collection and the several different colored woodgrain prints! It’s all around a happy, awesome collection!

I created a altered embroidery hoop! I love doing these right now and have two more that you’ll see eventually.. for other DT work. Anyhow, check out this cuteness!

Pretty cute, huh? Now it’s hanging in my craft room as a decoration… too bad it’s not bringing us spring, we’re suppose to get snow tomorrow!

Be sure to swing by the Doodlebug blog and see what the other talented DTers have made! So much inspiration!

NEW weekly video series – Oh, yeah!

That’s right, folks.. in case Facebook, Instagram, and my blog were not enough.. you can now find me on You Tube! I Just might be the next big You Tube Star…

OK.. maybe not. But I am excited to share with you all!

 

I decided to start a series called ‘What I’m Working With Wednesday’. I am going to TRY and do a new video every Wednesday. Just a quick and not very ‘formal’ video to show you some goodies I am working with for the week! Most the time it will be brand NEW stuff, fresh releases.. or stuff not yet released. Very little of ‘older’ stuff. Of course I urge you all to stop by my blog later on and see what I made with the goodies in the video. So, please let me know what you think. Do I talk to much.. not enough.. am I boring.. do I have hairy knuckles? This is just a ‘rough’ video to see how you all like it. If it’s a ‘go’ then I will make it snazzy with intros and what-not.

If you want to watch directly from You Tube, CLICK HERE and please SUBSCRIBE to my channel for more updates, etc. I might even sneak in a ‘haul’ video here and there. I do think I will use my Flip camera next time as the focus is not as good as I would have liked, but I tried!

 

Also, make sure you are viewing it at the best resolution that you can… Do this by hovering over the video and clicking the ‘gear’ icon… Like so:

So.. here it is! This WIWWW (Short for What I’m Working With Wednesday.. ) is showing off the new Doodlebug Designs collection ‘Take Note’. This collection is NOT available yet… which makes it even more fun to peek at! I can not wait to show you my project featuring this collection.

And please ignore my sloppy nail polish job. I just painted them this morning and well.. I didn’t do a very good job, lol.

See ya next week with another video! Enjoy and please let me know your thoughts!

A chick and a winner!

That blog title Sounds like a weird children’s book.. lol

So, I have a quick blog post today to announce the winner of the Echo Park kit from the blog hop! As always, we had a great turn-out and we are so glad you all joined us this month! I also have a cute ‘one piece’ chick box to share!

First up.. the box. Because it’s so darn cute! This little guy was created with SVG Cuts’ new kit of the week, ‘Egg Hunt’. This is this weeks FREE GIFT with your purchase of $9.98 or more. Use offer code FREEGIFT at checkout. GET IT HERE! Includes a lifetime warranty of happiness and the satisfaction of knowing you can always win over your friends and family with your amazing craft skills thanks to SVG Cuts… and the dirty looks from the other ‘room moms’ because you’re more awesome than they are is an added bonus!

 

Now that I’ve thrown my sales pitch at you.. here’s the little chick. His name is Gus.

Gus does’t normally have a bow on him… or feet (which I added from THIS kit) He’s cute without the bow.. BUT.. put one on him and shy little Gus quickly turns into overly confident ‘Gustavo’..

Jeez.. please excuse Gustavo.

Ya put a bow-tie on a chick and he gets all impudent ‘n stuff.

This little guy..

“What’s that, Gus?.. er.. ‘Gustavo’ ”…

“You’re not a little guy?…

“You’ll peck my eyes out!?”

 

Um.. Sooo.. this big ‘ol tough guy with feathers of steel was created with Doodlebug Designs goodies! I used the orange and yellow ‘petite prints’ basics. The black mini brads were perfect sized ‘eyes’. The bow-tie is a FREE FILE and cut with a blue polka dot pattern from ‘Hello Spring’. Even the twine for his little fluff is from Doodlebug!

“Hush, Gustavo!.. Be glad I didn’t give you a comb-over!….. perhaps a mullet?..”

In case you didn’t hear Gustavo, he was asking why I didn’t give him a Justin Beiber hairstyle. ‘Gustavo Fever’ just doesn’t have the same ring to it.

 

OK.. enough with that chicken nugget!!

“You heard what I said, GUS!… that’s right, NUGGET” 

 

Time for my Echo Park blog hop WINNER!

KAYLA FOISTER who said, “ I am a huge Echo Park fan and I just started doing Project LIfe style scrapbooking so I am super happy with their photo freedom lines! I have the Today’s Story Collection and I love it! Thanks for sharing your pages!”

Doodlebug Designs: Simple Bookmarks & a Birthday Card

Hello, friends! Are you ready to see some adorable Doodlebug projects? Today I have some quick and easy bookmarks and a fun and colorful robot card!

If you follow the Doodlebug Blog (and you should!) you’ve probably already seen these cute bookmarks.. so just keep scrollin’ and check out the adorable card below!

 

These bookmarks are quick and easy! Which is good if the child you give them to rips the stickers off to use on THEIR projects. Yes… that did happen. My daughter had the bookmarks in her hands for about 3 minutes and she took the sweet kitty Doodle Pop right off. She might have ripped off all the ‘good stuff’ but hey.. she still uses the tore up bookmark! I could have just handed her a piece of scrap paper and it would have been the same thing!

The assignment was a ‘love’ non-Valentines project. These are perfect for the child who LOVES to read.

I think the kitty wants to make a meal outta that little birdie. I can see it in her eyes… Psycho kitty. MEOW!

The ‘buggy’ bookmark is perfect for my little Alannah. We call her ‘Lana Buggy’. She saw it and was all smiles.

 

Doodlebug has TONS.. I mean TONS of different Doodle-Pops and stickers to use for custom bookmarks! I am trying to refrain from saying, “I LOVE Doodle-Pops” because I think I say it in every Doodlebug post I make.. lol.

OK.. really. I joined the DT JUST to get my hands on all their Doodle-Pop awesomeness.

I vaguely remember rolling around in them when my DT box came.

I also have them out in the open in my craft room. Right next to my table.. just so I can look over and give ‘em a lil wink and smile at them.

Yeah.. I WILL complete this post without telling you about my Doodle-Pop obsession… heh.

 

Then there’s this robot Doodle-Pop. I saw him and fell in love.

I have a ‘thing’ for robots. My son has had oodles of robot shirts in his sweet 5 years of life, has had a robot birthday, etc. I just think they are cute…. and I secretly wish I had one to hang out with and clean my house…. and change the cat box. Hmm.. could you imagine if the robot malfunctioned while scoopin’ the cat box?.. Just started flinging kitty clumps all of the place. “Scoop poop.. does not compute..” <— I hope you read that in your best robot voice.

So, I made a cute robot birthday card for a sweet birthday boy.

Hopefully you have the image of a robot flinging cat box scoopings out of your head by now..

 

That robot just screams ‘Come party with me!.. I’m a real ’machine’ on the dance floor!” har-har-haaaar.

 

Alright crafty friends… you can go about your day now. Don’t forget about my GIVEAWAY!

 

I am weird.. I know that. Not many paper craft blogs have cute projects and random robot flinging cat litter chit-chat. So for those who come here, read my nonsense, smile and keep coming back for more of my randomess THANK YOU!

Yummy treat ideas for Valentines Day!

Hello there!

What an eventful weekend I had! I mentioned the other day that my hubby was sick.. well he ended up going to the hospital and being admitted! He’s doing much better now and he is home and resting. He should be going back to work tomorrow so that’s good. Needless to say I didn’t have time to fiddle with my blog over the weekend.

Anyhow, today I am sharing TWO delicious Doodlebug treat packaging ideas! The design team has been very busy with the new Lovebirds collection! Hopefully you’ve had time to stop by the BLOG and see them all.. LOTS of inspiration going on over there.

First off I have a darling lollipop treat box. I found these adorable little heart shaped lollipops and knew I just had to make a project with them.. plus I don’t care for suckers, so the chance of me eating them are slim to none! When I buy M&M’s, etc. for ‘projects’…. yeah… ‘projects’…

‘Project’ GET IN MAH BELLAY!.. LOL!

I wish I had some fake candy that looked REAL. Heck, I would probably still find a way to eat it! lol. Anyhow, back to the lollipop box.. I used the cute ‘glove box’ file from SVG Cuts’ Mother’s Garden kit. I added on a cute scalloped window so you can see the cute lollipops inside. I decorated it and it came together as this:

Back pats to me for the whole photo staging too.. I think it came out super cute! I actually made that heart banner in the back with die cut felt hearts.

I really love the scalloped edges on this box.

For the lollipops I added some washi tape to the stick.. so cute! Yes, Doodlebug has WASHI TAPE now! And it’s awesome!!! The little love notes were perfect tags to add on. With a little twine bow and a small button.. too cute!

 

Next is this sweet cupcake baggie. This is a cutting file from the Silhouette store. I added on some heart jewels to look like little sprinkles. I can not get over how many embellishments Doodlebug makes. I have it all set up in my Ikea cart and it looks like a miniature candy store with all the COLOR.

So here’s my cute cupcake treat bag:

Looks good enough to eat, right?.. nom-nom-nom.

There’s some more of that cute washi tape! I am a sucker for polka dots!

 

So what do ya think? Have you snagged yourself some Doodlebug Lovebirds yet? There’s only TEN days left until Valentines day!  My hubby and I don’t really play into the ‘Hallmark holiday’ crap.. BUT I do play it up for my kids! I wasn’t able to do their little ‘love party’ for them this past weekend.. sick hubby.. plus my oldest daughter was with her dad and I don’t want her left out, so.. it’s on for this coming weekend! I will be sure to share pics for those that care to see what we are up to over here.

Alrighty.. see ya next time! (if you missed my layout I posted Friday, be sure to check it out!) Have a great week my crafty friends! See ya!
