July 4th Parade Layout - Doodlebug Design "Land That I Love" Collection

Hi there! Welcome! I hope everyone is having a great summer so far! Something that not very many people know about me is that the 4th of July is my absolute favorite holiday! I think it is because it is warm and sunny outside. We usually get to spend it with our family and dear friends, lots of yummy food is involved and I don't have to buy anyone presents lol! So I definitely jumped for joy when I saw the adorable "Land that I Love" collection that celebrated my favorite holiday! Today I  am happy to share a layout with you with some photos of my kiddos when they were little. Gotta love a throwback photo or two!

I LOVE using sketches when I create layouts - and I especially love the sketches over at the PageMaps website.  This layout was inspired by this adorable layout and I pretty much followed it exactly. Big thanks to them for creating such a fun sketch! 

I love that this collection included some aqua in the color pallet along with the traditional red, white, and blue. The colorful dots on the Polka Dot Parade paper were a great pop of color on my white cardstock background. I also added a strip of the "America the Beautiful" paper with the tiny colorful grid. I like to add different scales of pattern paper on my layouts for interest. 

 The title is made from some of the Odds and Ends.  I added a blue star  Shaped Sprinkle to the dot on the "J" for some shine. The little "parade" sticker is found on the "This and That" sticker sheet. The banner along the top is also from the Odds and Ends.

 The fireworks from the Odds and Ends were too cute not to use so I added a couple of them around the title. I embellished them a little further with some Stickles and Nuvo Drops for dimension. Aren't those little smiley stars so fun? They are also from the Odds and Ends and I added them to the center of the fireworks with some foam tape.

 These next photos are some close-ups of the rest of the decorations on the page. The cute snow-cone is from the Odds and Ends and I added some Stickles on the dots for some sparkle.

I can't forget to add journaling to the page - this was typed up on the computer and then mounted on a piece of the red "Family Picnic" paper that I notched the end to make into a banner shape. I tied some Swimming Pool Doodle Twine on the end. You can also see I added lots of star Shape Sprinkles here and there throughout the layout. They add such a shine!!

Something new that I am including with my projects is a printable set of instructions on how YOU can recreate my projects. I am calling them "Doodle Downloads and I will attach a link below that will take you to a Google Doc with a supply sheet and full instructions. Please let me know if you have any questions! Click the link below! 

(sample of what the sheet will look like) 

That's all I have for you today! Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope that I have inspired you to pick up the super sweet "Land That I Love" collection to help you record your next 4th of July themed scrapbook page! It is such a fun collection, filled to the brim with oodles of cute icons and pattern papers. Happy Crafting friends!

Bella Digi Layout - June Mood Board Challenge

Hi there Bella fans! Tya up on the blog today and I am sharing my latest digital scrapbook layout with you today! It was so fun to be able to get inspiration for my layout from our June Mood Board.  Just look at all those yummy Summer colors!

 My kids LOVE the water -  I swear they are part fish! I decided to use the super cute "Secrets of the Sea" digital collection to create my layout. This collection is SO CUTE!! I can't even stand it! I had a hard time choosing my embellishments! There are loads of different ocean-themed products but I focused mainly on some of the flowers, fishies, and that adorable starfish sure caught my eye and I knew I needed to use him! The pattern papers were a great mix of bold, busy patterns, and then some more subtle patterns, so I decided to showcase both kinds. That mermaid paper is way too fun! 

I had such a fun time creating this layout! I hope I have inspired you to record some of your favorite ocean-themed memories. This digital collection would be perfect for it! Thanks for stopping by! Happy Crafting friends!

Bella Blvd Digi Layout - Happy National Best Friends Day!

Hi friends! Did you know that June 8th is National Best Friends Day? I love that there is a day set aside to celebrate those special relationships. I am celebrating it by creating a fun digital scrapbooking layout with some fun pictures of my oldest daughter with her bestie. The fun thing is - her mom and I are also besties so it is double the fun when we all get together!

I think the colors in the Addison digital collection are so bright and fun! Just like these two cute girls! The heart icons are some that I recolored to match the collection and then just adjusted the size a little bit on each of them for some variety. This is so much easier to do digitally than having to punch all those different size hearts out! Yay digital!! :)

Thank you so much for stopping by the blog today! I hope I have inspired you to create a layout celebrating your besties! They make the world a much brighter place and I am all about that these days and should be celebrated! Happy Crafting!
