Doodlebug 4th of July Layout

Today's Project:  July 4th Page Layout
Created for:  Doodlebug Designs

I have always loved the red, white, and blue color combination ... but when you pair those colors with all of Doodlebug's adorable patterns and embellishments it's even more fun!

For this page, I layered a few Patriotic Picnic papers with some of Doodlebug's textured cardstock.  I used my Cameo machine to sketch a fun swirly border, and then anchored the page with some striped paper and scallop fancy frill stickers.

Can't have this patriotic holiday without a little sparkle, so the star gems were perfect for adding some shine to my layout.  I also love combining Chippers alpha letters and the Skinny cardstock stickers.  Together they worked perfectly for my July 4th title.

Here is a list of the Doodlebug goodies I used:

Sweetheart and Lily White card textured yardstick
Patriotic Picnic Papers and Stickers
Star Jewels
Skinny Cardstock Stickers
Chippers Alpha stickers
Fancy Frill border stickers

Doodlebug ABC Book

Today's Project:  Child's ABC Alphabet Book
Created For:  Doodlebug Designs

Hi everyone!  Today I'm sharing a great project that you can create for the young children in your life.  Doodlebug Designs challenged the design team to use their great alpha stickers in a fun way.  I created this ABC alpha book for the challenge.   It's my turn over on the Doodlebug blog today so please come by and say hello ... I love to read your comments!

Each page inside the album is dedicated to a letter of the alphabet.  Children can see the letter, a cute Doodle Pop or sticker, a word that starts with the letter, and even a personal photo.

I think this project would be a sweet album to give a child or grandchild, filled with photos of the child or family that corresponds to the word on that page.  You could get very creative with this one!  You could also make a Numbers book to help the child learn about counting... 1-10 etc.

Thanks for letting me share another mini album with you! Here are a few more of the pages:

Father’s Day Gift Card Tag

Today's project:  Father’s Day Gift Card Tag
Created for:  We R Memory Keepers

Hi everyone, it’s Traci and I’m happy to be sharing a fun and easy Father’s Day project over on We R's blog today.  I created a tag that can hold a gift card.  

To create the tag, I used the new 123 Punch Board, an angle Corner Chomper, and the trim and score board (links below).

To start, I cut the pocket portion of my tag from navy card stock 3 1/2” x 10”, and scored the piece at 5”.   

With the piece folded in half on the score line, I used the “angle” side of the pink Corner Chomper to create tag corners.

Next, I created a notch on one short side of the card stock for my “shirt collar” by using the center marks on the 123 Punch Board.  Then I adhered the piece together on the long sides to create a pocket, and punched a small round hole in the back to hold my jute cord.

I cut a piece of plaid paper (from the StoryTime collection) to create my shirt. 3 1/4” x 4 3/4”.  I followed the same steps to create the tag corners and “shirt collar” notch.

I adhered the plaid paper to the front of the navy background tag.  To create the bow tie, I followed the directions for the XS bow on the 123 Punch Board.  

Finally, I added the bow tie to the front of the “shirt” and then added a few buttons and a title.


Thanks for letting me share this tag for Dad with you today!
