Page with Doodlebug 'Hello'

Recording a special moment and then scrapbooking it the next day is a win-win in my books!  It doesn't happen too often for me and it's not like I put the pressure on myself to do so but when it happens I will certainly seize the opportunity!

This page was inspired by a couple of things. Firstly, by this sticker from the Hello collection, the title sentiment was perfect for my photo. Secondly, I had an idea to recycle planner pages.

With the strong pink title as the anchor point, I created a visual triangle of the same colour with the doilies.  Taking note of the soft coral and green colours in the photo I used some smaller pattern papers from the Hello collection along with gold/yellow ephemera to tie everything together.

I purchased a planner for it's pretty floral look but then later realized the spiral binding in the middle was too large as it kept getting in the way as I was writing.  Lesson learned and I purchased a 2nd (much more functional) planner.  I didn't want to toss away my first planner thinking the pages could be used to highlight the actual date of my page.

I used the entire planner page as a photo backdrop and then placed a triangle sticker and some enamel dots to highlight the actual day.

Love how cute these shaped sprinkles for that extra shine!

Thanks for dropping by the blog today, have a wonderful day!

July Cards!

Happy July! I dug into my Yankee Doodle collection stash and challenged myself to just use the sprinkles vellum paper along with some ephemera to create my cards.  The sprinkles vellum paper is 'da bomb', it adds a beautiful sheer texture with delicate raised shiny stars to the cards!

This camper card would be great for anyone you know embarking on a great camping road trip or heading up to their trailer for the Summer.

Send a wagon load of 'Thank-you's to that special someone, they will surely appreciate your kind sentiments!

Lastly, I couldn't resist dipping into the Down On the Farm collection for the moo-valous cow doodle pop to make this fun Birthday card!
