Doodlebug Happy Go Lucky Gift Set

Hi everyone! I'm excited to be back over on Doodlebug's blog today to share a cute gift idea using their Happy-Go-Lucky collection. This is a really fun project to make for St. Patrick's Day or ... any happy occasion. I made this as a teacher's gift set but you could make it for anyone.

To start, I used white card stock and "Happy-Go-Lucky" pattern paper called Colorful Clovers to create the small gift box. I used a cutting file by Alaa'K (link below) and tied ribbon through the holes in the corners.  

I love Doodlebug's cards so I used two of them in my project. I used a limeade A6 swiss dot card and added a cute polka dot paper called Rows of Rainbows. For my sticky note holder, I used a limeade slim filigree card.  

To create the sticky note holder:
Lay your slim filigree card open with the bracket shape to the left. Using the measurements on your score board (or a ruler), create 4 score lines as shown below (1 3/4", 2", 5" and 5 1/4").  Ignore the original score line as you will cover this up with pattern paper.  Next, cut the end of the card off so that your new card is 8 1/4" long.  
Add pattern paper and a button with twine to the outside, and glue a sticky note pad on the inside.
For the pen, I wrapped limeade swiss dot washi tape around the pen and cut and layered flowers out of pattern paper for the top.  A cute limeade boutique button and bubblegum twine finished off the pen.

What's a gift without a bit of chocolate right?  So I wrapped 1" pattern paper strips around chocolate nugget candies and tucked them into a Doodlebug bubblegum striped treat bag.  

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope this inspires you to create your own gift set. Below are some of the product links used in making this project and a few suggested substitutions.

Birthday Mini Scrapbook Album, Party Time

Good morning friends,
Today's project share is a new mini I added in the shop yesterday.  The fun, soft colors in this collection are so happy, but I especially like the theme!

The title on the cover says "You Only Live Once....Celebrate".  There are a lot of kid-style birthday collections on the market, but rarely do you find one that is appropriate for girls like me who like to celebrate too!   This paper collection called Party Time! by Webster's Pages is perfect for adult celebrations, from birthdays to other party themes.

Some of the sayings throughout the mini album are "Forever Young", "So Much Fun", "Party Time", and "Dance Like Nobody is Watching".

This adorable mini is available in the shop in limited quantities -- DIY or pre-made.  Follow this link to purchase yours before they sell out:

Valentine Gift Set with Lori Whitlock Designs

Hi everyone! With Christmas behind me, I'm getting some Valentine's gift sets done early. I created this cute set for Lori Whitlock's blog today. I love Lori’s cute little Hershey’s Nugget Box so I used several of her files to create a fun top on the box, along with a matching card.

I added some sparkle to both projects with lines of tiny clear gems, and wrapped the candies in 1″ strips of pattern paper.  This is a super easy, affordable and fun gift for classmates, co-workers or for anyone that you want to give a special little treat to.

The pattern paper is from the Doodlebug Design, Lovebugs Collection.

Thanks so much for letting me share a few projects with you today! To get great scrapbooking ideas & to stay up-to-date on new products & sales please "like" Artsy Albums on Facebook, Instagram & Pinterest!
