Doodlebug Hey Cupcake Mini Album

What is more fun than a birthday celebration for kids?  I love the pure joy on their faces, the colorful decorations, and of course, the cake!  So why not save all of your fun memories in a cute little mini album ... or make one for a friend after you've attended their party.  The brand new Hey Cupcake collection is perfect for this project!

 
For the cover, I decided to add a 3-dimensional bow designed by Lori Whitlock.  You can find her cutting file here.  I also love the new Doodle Cut mini tags so I made one with a little Happy birthday sentiment from the birthday girl stamps set.  And those DoodlePops!  So stinkin' cute!
 
 
I used the cards and envelopes (Hey Cupcake Assortment) throughout the album too ... above is an adorable bubblegum card that open up for photos to tuck inside.
 

The whole album was made with a 6x6 paper pad and a few sheets of petite prints.  I used chit chat pieces, the This & That sticker sheet, and icon stickers for all of the cute embellishments.
 


All of the die cuts above are from the Chit Chat pieces.  
 

These doodlepops with the layers and shine!  I just love them!

Well I know you are going to love Hey Cupcake as much as I do, so I hope I've given you a cute little idea for a fun birthday project!

So Sweet Layout Cutting Tutorial, Bella Blvd

Hi everyone!  Today I want to share a new layout with you and give you a few quick tips on how to create a circle background with a cutting machine.  I used lots of cute Bella Besties paper and a Silhouette Cameo machine.
Bella Blvd, Squeeze the Day, Bella Besties

I started by creating random circle shapes in the silhouette software. I made sure to leave a bit of space between them.


Once I had all the circles where I wanted them, I highlighted them and selected the offset tool. I adjusted the offset to 0.2 and hit apply.
 

Finally, I used the knife tool to shave off the parts of the circles that overlapped my mat.
 

I could have used my cutting machine to also cut out all of the Bella Besties pattern circles, but I had enough sizes of regular circle punches so I used those to save some time.

 
I used both 12x12 and 6x6 papers for some contrast in the patterns.

Finally, I adhered letters from the Squeeze the Day chipboard for my title, and cute strawberries from the ephemera and epoxy icons.  I can't get enough of the Bella Bestie solid papers! Thanks for letting me share my layout with you!

Birthday Scrapbook Albums For Girl & Boy

Hello Friends! I have the cutest Girl & Boy Birthday albums to share with you! They were designed with 2 adorable Doodlebug collections & they make wonderful keepsakes for your fun celebrations! Take a look ...



To purchase the instructions to make this album visit:
 
I created this pink version with the Doodlebug Design, Hey Cupcake collection. I just love the colorful papers and the playful embellishments!
 
 
The kitty cat, the presents, the sprinkling confetti and that pretty pink, super girly cake with flowers makes such a pretty cover.
 
This album is 7"x 6.25" and it's perfect for any birthday event whether it's a party, an afternoon with friends, lunch or dinner or a small gathering at home. Save photos of friends & family, the colorful decorations, fun activities, gift opening and the cake!
 

Both albums have interactive fold outs for added space and a pocket for birthday cards, notes or extra photos.

 
This would make a special handmade gift for your daughter, your granddaughter or a best friend. Instead of a toy, clothes or a gift card ... this would be something they'd keep forever.
 
 
 
It would also be a wonderful project to make together. That's a win for both of you!
 

This album has 12 pages (6 double-sided) and can fit over 20 photos.
 


To purchase the instructions to make this album visit:

The blue version is equally as cute with lots of puppy dogs, monkeys, stars and birthday wishes scattered throughout!

For this scrapbook, I used the Doodlebug Designs, Party Time collection. It is similar to the girl collection but uses different animals and color scheme.

I love the color combination of blue, teal, green, yellow and orange. A bit more masculine but still bright, happy and colorful!

Boys enjoy being artistic and crafty too so this is a great project to create with your son or grandson. They can help decide where the stickers go and which photos to use. Quality time spent together talking and laughing!

Maybe you know someone who's having a dog themed birthday party. This would be just perfect.

 
I've included the links for the Birthday Album Instructions below AND the products that were used to make them. I've also added 2 links for my Birthday Boy and Girl Layout Instructions as well.
 

Thanks for stopping by and happy scrapping!
