Love Valentine Scrapbook Mini Album, Doodlebug Sweet Things

Happy Wednesday everyone!  I'm back over on the Doodlebug Blog today to share my "Sweet Things"  project.  If I had to pick my favorite all-time color combo, it would probably be red, turquoise, black and white.  So when I saw this adorable new collection, I couldn't wait to play with it!!  

I was excited to see that a Simple Stories turquoise Sn@p album matched the collection perfectly.  For the cover, I created a title card from a piece in the 6x6 paper pad.  I also used a bright red flower from the Valentine flowers Craft kit, along with a white boutique button and some beetle black twine.

Here are a few of the inside pages of my album:

The sentiment phrase strips are a fun new addition to this collection.  They are on a 12x12 sheet of cards, and you can cut them apart individually, or use them together like I did on the page above.

Fancy Frills border stickers  are also a favorite of mine.  Since they are 12" long, I was able to cut the zig zag in half to line the top and bottom of my 4x6 card .... cute!!  And here's another tip for Fancy Frills ... buy two!  That way you can put a border across a full two-page 12x12 layout!

For the page above, I added a ladybug red envelope from one of my Create-a-Card sets.  Since it's Doodlebug, the red matches perfectly and gives me a fun spot to tuck in journaling or extra pictures!

Thanks so much for checking out the blog today, and thank you to everyone who purchased last week's Winter Mini Album kit using the Polar Pals collection.  If you are also interested in seeing this album as a DIY kit, please leave me comment here, or on the Doodlebug blog post.  If enough people are interested, I'll make it a kit :)

Happy crafting!
