Doodlebug Patriotic Parade Simply Put Pocket Style Layout

Hi everyone - I"m here, sharing with you this fun and festive Patriotic Parade layout featuring the darling Simply Put Stars and Stripes 4x6 cards and the awesome pocket style page protectors from Doodlebug Design! I have a confession - The 4th of July  is my absolute favorite holiday! Because of that I usually end up taking oodles of photos on this holiday documenting every parade, flag and firework- so these nifty pocket style protectors and the 4x6 cards make scrapbooking these type of events quick and easy!

I am always on the lookout for an awesome brush script font - I used Cheddar Jack font from I love this one- Definitely a keeper!
Here is the pocket page-- this protector type is one of my favorites- I love the mix of vertical and horizontal photos , plus the 2 x 12 inch space on the side was perfect to highlight the darling star garland that is one of the newer products that Doodlebug came out with this year!

Here are the close ups of the pocket page elements- I used lots of different embellishments such as Stars and Stripes Jewels, Red, White and Blue mini pearls, Firecracker Doodlepops, Silver sprinkles, Red, White and Blue star sprinkles,and Ladybug hearts sprinkles.

Thanks for stopping by and remember when scrapbooking events that include lots of photos - reach for one of the super useful Simply Put 4x6 paper pads, and your favorite pocket page protecor, and you will have darling pages in no time! Happy crafting!

Show me the Money! Gift Card & Money Holders

Hello everyone! As the school year is winding down, our graduates are getting ready to get their diplomas and make their way into the real world- What better way to show your love and support for all their hard work than by giving them a little cash! Today I wanted to share with you a gift card and money holder that I cut out with my Silhouette and used the super darling The Graduates line for the paper and embellishments for these fun paper crafts.

First up is this darling 3d Box that holds a gift card. The star papers were one of my favorites to use and the golden owl - how fun is he with his little glasses! Add a pop of gold sugar coated cardstock and you have an eye catching gift card holder they will love!
I used this Silhouette cut file for this box: 3d Graduation Box with inserts

I really fell in love with this money holder! I comes like a little booklet with 4 money envelopes that you add into the center. I added a little bit of the Graduation Mini Garland on the end of the cover for a little sparkle! 
I used this Silhouette cut file for this project: 3D Book of Money

Thanks for stopping by and checking out this fun set of money and gift card holders! I love using my electronic die cutting machine to make fun gifts for my loved ones! Give these a try - I know who ever gets them will love them!
