Doodlebug Calendar with Daily Doodles

Today's project:  2016 Daily Doodles Calendar
Created For:  Doodlebug Designs

Hi friends!  I'm super excited about a new project that I have posted over at Doodlebug Designs today.   It uses a brand NEW Doodlebug product AND lots of fun collections from throughout 2015.  Do you have some left over Doodlebug scraps or, do you wish you had a reason to use some of this year's adorable collections?  If so, I have a perfect project for you :)

When Doodlebug recently introduced Daily Doodles I was thrilled!  I'm a calendar girl.  I love documenting birthdays, holidays, fun family events, etc. so a calendar is a really fun project for me.

With Daily Doodles, and lots of this year's Doodlebug collection scraps, I was able to create a really fun calendar for 2016.

I kept the scrapbook pages VERY simple, and plan to focus on filling in the fun calendar next year.  Seriously ... how fun will this be with stickers, journaling, and adding dates and events, and little 2x2 pictures!!  I can't wait!  Here are a few pictures of my starting point:

There is a scrapbook page for each month (note: after the year is over I will slide these pages into a 12x12 scrapbook album!) and a Daily Doodles calendar page for each month .... 















How fun is this!!  I can't wait until 2016 so I can start filling it in!  I'm going to add family and friend photos to birthday squares, cute Doodlebug stickers on major events (like the Santa on Dec 25 above) and lots of adorable embellishments "just because" ... 

Hope you have fun with Daily Doodles too and either use up your scraps OR use this as an excuse to go get all of those Doodlebug collections from earlier this year!! 

Happy Scrapping!

Doodlebug December Daily

Today's Project:  Doodlebug December Daily Album
Created For:  Doodlebug Designs

According to Ali Edwards, the creator of the original December Daily project, the album is created to document the 25 days leading up to Christmas.  "The simple goal", according to Ali, "is to capture the spirit of December via one story per day".

I've seen many versions of this fun project on blogs and Pinterest, but I decided to create my Doodlebug Designs album with a bit of a twist....pockets!  This way, each day has a page for photos and a pocket for other items -- lists, recipes, receipts, tickets, notes, additional photos, etc.

I love all the patterns and colors in the new Doodlebug Sugarplums collection.  Mixing and matching the papers on the 25 pockets/pages made for a colorful, fun album!  I combined 12x12 and 6x6 papers, lots of embellishments, brand new Doodlebug Chunky Twine, and a Simple Stories Sn@p album.







Hope you have fun documenting your December memories!
Products I used in this album:
Sugarplums 12x12 Paper
Sugarplums 6x6 paper pad
Sugarplums Die cuts
Sugarplums This & That Stickers
Sugarplums Sprinkle Shapes
Chippers alpha/numbers
Chunky Twine


Please be sure to check out all of this seasons new Artsy Albums kits!  We have a few albums using brand new Doodlebug products, Fall Friends and October 31st, and many other kits to help you save your memories in an easy, fun way!  Check out our shop here!

Artsy Albums Coupon

Happy birthday Artsy Albums! 
4 years ago I started an amazing journey. A journey of faith, leaving a company where a paycheck was a sure-thing.  I  stepped into an industry that I loved dearly,  but one that I had a lot to learn from.   I'm still learning, but I want to thank you all so much for supporting my business thus far and allowing me to do what I love! 
At church today, the message was "There is more to your story".  How appropriate ... as I reflect on my Artsy Albums story, AND my goal to encourage others to tell their stories through scrapbooking.  

As a way of saying thank you, please use coupon code STORY20 to receive 20% off your order through Tuesday 10/6. 

There is more to our story ... your story!  Let me help you document, save and share your memories!!!
