Doodlebug Easter Express

I have to admit my heart melted instantly at the first sight of the adorable bunnies, cute little chicks and sweet treats in the latest Easter Express collection.  You'll love stringing together the cute Easter train across your projects and the shape sprinkles are absolutely lovable!

Here is my page,  I couldn't resist showing off all the cute little animals ephemera die cuts.  If you look closely at one of the photos, the bunny shape sprinkle fits onto the bunny clip if you want a little more dimension on your project. 

Here is an Easter card that is super easy to assembly.  Using the house die cut along with a a doodle-pop and a few sprinkles you have a cute card ready to give away!

Spring will be here soon, counting down the weeks!!  To get you into a Spring-ish mood , check out Doodlebug's Spring Things collection.  You'll love all the cute little critters, clouds, flowers and especially the acetate die cut ephemera in this collection!

Here is my Spring page, don't you just love the flowers on Emma's raincoat, so very Doodlebug-ish!

Emma is holding an umbrella in her photo pose.  I layered the umbrella doodle-pop on top of the acetate umbrella and it fit perfectly into her hands!

Next, I created an accordion album, this is a great way to have fun scrapbooking your photos and using lots of amazing embellishments along the way.

Thanks for stopping by the blog today, hope you have a wonderful crafty day!

Doodlebug- Cream & Sugar!

Hello everyone, here to share some projects using Doodlebug's adorable Cream & Sugar collection.  Having a love for lattes and a sweet tooth, I am just so thankful all the delicious sweet treats in this collection are calorie free, phew!

As soon as I saw the frappuccino icon in this collection I had the perfect photo in mind to scrapbook.  I used a Doodlebug treat bag to cluster a grouping of embellishments beside the photo to enhance the 'Sweet' title on the page.

The Cream & Sugar collection has plenty of yummy bits perfect for making cards for that special someone.  On this card, I used a Doodlebug mini love letter to create a Valentines day card.

Happy crafting and I hope your projects are sweetened with a bit of  Cream & Sugar! I know I couldn't resist it!

Autumn Days

I love living in a climate where we can experience so many beautiful seasons.  Autumn is truly a spectacular time filled with beautiful colours and cozy sweater evenings.  Scrapbook and Cards Today's Fall issue is one you just have to pick up and read with a cuppa of tea or warm cider.

Here is a peek at a project featured in the Fall issue.  The apple cut file from Silhouette was a perfect back drop to fantastic day of apple picking, corn mazes and sampling some apple pie!

Will you marry me?

So I'm going to give you the happy ending first! The answer to Will you marry me? is Yes!

For the past few weeks I have been working on a client album to scrapbook their relationship story leading up to a romantic proposal for marriage.    The scrapbook album was an integral part of the 'Will you marry me' with the ring tied directly to the page.

Here is the proposal page without the ring, this page slips into the page protector:

Here is the the finished proposal page with the ring tied from one of the cherry blossoms that is attached on the outside of the page protector ( this is not the actual ring, the real one was tied there and then the toy ring was put back after the proposal).

This was a wonderful project to work on as my client was so trusting in my creative process, in the end he was over the moon with the results.  The album started out with photos of their childhood, how they met in university, trips they took together, good times with friends etc. all leading up to the important (surprise) marriage proposal.

The completed album ended up being 25 pages and here are a few peeks.  I blurred out the photos and journaling but I think you can still get the gist and design of the pages.  I apologize for the lighting, this project was time sensitive and there was only one window of opportunity to take photos of the pages before packaging the album for it's final destination to Montreal.

This was the left side of the double proposal page, I didn't want to put any photos on the left side to distract away from the right side page (because if has the ring!).  This font called LD batter-love from the Silhouette store is amazing, I love that it welds so beautifully together, I used the font throughout the album.

A page waiting for their engagement photo.

This was a favourite photo of them together, so I duplicated the image using them on photo strips.

Used Basic Grey's South Pacific collection here:

Here is a simple design to fits lots of photos, the grid cut file was designed by Ashley Horton, love it!

The hot air balloon cut file is from the Silhouette store and was so fun to make. The clouds are dry embossed for some subtle texture.

Some My Minds Eye, Authentique and Maggie Holmes Crate Paper goodies on this page, I was going for a really soft and feminine look, his journaling on this page was really endearing.

Thanks for dropping by, hope you have a wonderful crafty day! xx
