Spring My Sweet Friend Mini Album

I love designing handmade gifts that come together quickly and are fun to make! Today, I'm sharing a sweet mini album that I created for a friend. Wait until you see how many Doodlebug collections I used in this little book!

For the cover, I used the adorable gingham check paper called Under My Umbrella and the row of bugs paper along the bottom is called Sweet Sunshine, both from the Simply Spring Collection. The cute bird and branch die cut is from the Spring Things Odds & Ends. The "Friend" title and heart banner are from the Hello collection, and the sun die cut came from the I💗Travel Collection, Odds and Ends. (Product links below).
How sweet is that little pink butterfly? She's also part of the Spring Things Odds & Ends. I think that's 4 collections so far! That cute green critter paper in the background is from Simply Spring called Bloomin' Bugs. And in the photo above you can also see some petite prints dot and stripe in swimming pool and bubblegum. That's 5!
Ready for more? That precious yellow heart paper is from the So Punny Collection (but a good substitute would be Bella Blvd's Besties Hearts and Ombre in Bell Pepper). And what project would be complete without some floral Petite Prints!  We're up to 7 Doodlebug Collections!

The cute little Hello Lady card and the floral print square are also from the Simply Spring line. (Doodlebug has an almost exact match for that floral in their Hippity Hoppity Collection - link below).
See the floral paper on the pocket? That one's from Bunnyville and it's called Happy Easter. That's 8!
I love, love, love, that sunshine paper from Simply Spring called Sweet Sunshine. You can find it in the 12x12 paper pack linked below. 
And finally, the pretty Jellybean Plaid above is from Hoppy Easter. Whoa, that makes 9! I used 9 different collections in this little mini! That's one of my favorite things about Doodlebug ... my older collections will always match the new ones.  Well, that and the sprinkles, of course!

If you'd like to make this cute little album, I've added some product links and a few substitutions below. Thanks for letting me share it with you! I hope I've inspired you to use all of your Doodlebug collections together!
