A Craft Cart Mini Album with Doodlebug Designs

Hello friends! A few days ago, I asked my Facebook and Instagram followers which Cute & Crafty die cut was their favorite. They're ALL adorable but several people said they love the little craft cart. So, I decided to create a new shaped mini album with the craft cart cutting file. How stinkin' cute is this? It literally made me giddy!

To begin, I offset the cutting file to create the white card stock pages. Then I used the Petite Prints, Dot/Stripe and Gingham/Linen in swimming pool for the cover. Next, I added all the little icon stickers to the cart's drawers. That was fun. So much cuteness!

For an extra sweet smile, I added a few enamel dots in cupcake for the cheeks and added the "making memories" title from the Chit Chat (links below). 

Since my album measures 4" x 9", I used the 12x12 Cute and Crafty papers to cover my pages. So many colorful prints, I think I used every single one of them! I added some die cuts from the Odds and Ends and a 3x4 fold-out card too. No album is too small for a flippie!

Ok, check out the pages above. On the left side, a long flippie that's perfect for documenting your favorite things. And when you flip it up ... 

... there is space for more photos! Now can you see why I was so giddy making this? 

And on the right side, a little pocket filled with a card for journaling, fun die cuts and space for extra photos. I just couldn't make a mini without a pocket or two!

More fun pages with a rainbow pencil paper (love!) and sprinkles (love!). How cute is the little button!? I used foam tape under a few of the flowers for some shiny dimension. And when you lift up this flippie you'll find .... 

... lots of cute crafting tools smiling back at you!  
I used a few stickers here and there from the This and That. One of my favorites is the "Every day is a good day to craft". I couldn't agree more!!
