Easter for Doodlebug Design

In our family everyone loves chocolate, so Easter is one of our favorite holidays. Last year, my little boy was big enough to understand what was happening so for the first time he joined his big sister on the egg hunting!

I love all the patterns in Doodlebug Design collections, they are gorgeous, but some times they might seem too busy to be used as a background... I was determined to use this fabulous patterned paper as background, so I solved the problem by cutting a bit of space using one of the cut files of this collection:

I used the file Easter Bunny #2 to create some space for including my photos and journaling, and of course I used a good amount of embellishments as well from the Odds&Ends and Shape Sprinkles packages.

If your trying this, a good idea is to use the sewing machine (or hand sew) around all the cut shape, this way you make sure the white background is properly adhered to the patterned paper and also it gives a nice effect.

I journaled about the happy memories of these photos and included a big title I cut using my electronic cutting machine and free font Learning Curve.

I am so satisfied about how this layout came out, it displays the gorgeous patterned paper but it does not look overwhelming or too busy.
If you give this idea a try let me know, thank you for stopping by today with us, have a lovely day my Doodlenug friends!

Paper Park for Doodlebug Design

Last year I had the luck and joy of attending to a huge Latin-American scrapbooking convention held in Uruguay, the Paper Fest.
I spent 4 days with women from different countries of Latin-America and from Spain and we had a blast. the event included different workshops with teachers such as Amy Tan and Steffi Ried, and everything was oh so dreamy, plenty of fabulous photo spots, the scrapper heaven!

Of course I took a gazillion of photos, and the new Simple Spring collection was the perfect fit for some of them. 

I used this beautiful collection to create a layout documents the gorgeous park in the hotel where the event was held. There were awesome photo spots and I had a blast with my friends taking fabulous pics.

I went for a super simple grid design and used plenty of diecuts from the Odds & Ends package.

I created my title cutting some letters with my electronic cutting machine and using this tutorial I created some time ago. The handwritten font it's called Sacramento and you can download it for free from the internet.

I love the little critter of the Shape Sprinkles in this collection, they are simply adorable in any way, and a perfect element for embellishing the title. 

I hope you like this layout, it has a lot of volume and texture but it is a very simple one and it documents such a happy memory.

Have a lovely day my friends!

Lucky for Doodlebug Design

My kids love to have their photo taken, but getting a non blurry pic with both of them on it is such a hard task.

Few weeks ago we were walking around our neighborhood and suddenly they started posing and asking "mom, we like this spot, take a pic of us here!" I knew it was my lucky day! I snapped a few photos of my babies and made a layout about that happy moment :)

I love how colorful and cheerful Lots O' Luck collection is, the rainbows and ldybugs make me so happy.

I used a lot of stitching and transparency in this layout. One tip for achieving perfect sewing machine stitching is not using the pedal but making it work with your hand, this way the stitching will be exactly where you want.

This is such a simple layout about a random happy moment, I love it! Volume, texture and transparency are the main elements and I think it cam out cute. I hope you like this idea.

Have a lovely day my friends!

Beautiful Skirt - Doodlebug Design

Hello!!! Today I want to share here this layout I made for Doodlebug Design, it's a silly one but I love it <3 p="">
I love clothes, specially dresses and skirts, so when I found this polka dots and clovers skirt I really fell crazy in love with it. 

Midi skirts are my current wardrobe obsession, and this one is my absolute favorite, so when I saw Lot's Of Luck collection I knew it was perfect for documenting my pretty clovers skirt. All the clovers and green were the perfect fit for my photos. 

I went for a simple design with central columns and used plenty of diecuts from the Odds&Ends package, my favorite item from all Doodlebug Design collections. 

I love when scrapbooking is an excuse to do something in real life, like this time, when using the beautiful Lots O' Luck collection was the excuse to dress up, feel gorgeous and pose like a model in the hedge of my neighbor :)

I hope you like this simple design, maybe you also have a fave outfit you would like to document, just do it! This is the kind of stuff you will surely forget about in few more years and scrapbooking is such a precious tool to treasure your happy memories.

 Thank you for stopping by today!

Garland Layout for Doodlebug Design

Hola! Hoy quiero mostrar acá esta layout que hice porque sí, porque tenía tiempo y ganas y estaba inspirada con la maravillosa colección French Kiss de Doodlebug Design. Esto es algo que no sucede casi nunca, así que estoy super orgullosa de mi productividad, jaja!

Hice una layout con estrutura de guirnalda, me encantan las guirnaldas!

Para crear mi estructura de guirnalda puse un par de eyelets en ambos extremos de la hoja y luego amarré un hilo metalico plateado a traves de ellos. 

Me encantan los alfabetos metálicos de DD, acá como había  usado hilo plateado tambien usé letras plateadas Abigail. 

Construí el título con un pedacito de una canción infantil clasica estadounidense, me gusta porque dice justo lo que siento en este momento en que veo que mis nilos crecen y crecen tanto, pero sin importar cuanto para mí siempre serán mis guaguas ❤  

Me gusta mucho esta layout, es super simple y me demoré super poquito en hacerla, además me sirve de consuelo al ver que me voy quedando sin bebés, jajaja!

Espero que les haya gustado, un besito y gracias por visitar este blog ❤

I Love You - Doodlebug Design

Hello! Today I want to share here this layout I made for Doodlebug Design and featured this week on their blog.

My kids have 8 years of difference, and some days this difference really matters. My daughter is so patient but the little mister is such a tornado... Anyway, at the end of the day they love each and take care of each other no matter what, and this what I wanted to document in this sweet layout I made using French Kiss collection. 

I wanted to include circles (you know I'm the crazy circles lady!) but this time in a different way, so I cut halves of circles on left and right of the page. Then I got a bit crazy with embellishments from the Odds&Ends package, and I played with volume and layers with the help of some foam dots.

The title is the element that links both sides of this layout, and I created it using free font Better Together and a heart diecut from Odds&Ends package. 

I hope you like the clean and simple design of this layout, it was super easy to do and it came out pretty! Also, this kind of design allows you to use plenty of photos and embellishments without making it look too busy. 

If you have any question just leave me a comment, have a great day!

Minialbum Circular - Anita y Su Mundo

Hola! Hoy quiero compartir acá este proyecto que hice hace algunos días para mis españolísimas amigas de Anita y Su Mundo.

Como ya saben, me encantan los minialbumes, y esta vez me entusiasmé con el reto redondo de este mes y hice este mini completamente redondito.
Usé la hermoso y femenina colección De Chicas ya que el tema del mini es amistad, por lo que la colección era perfecta.

Las tapas las hice usando cartulina kraf de 300 grs. de la colección de Básicos de Anita y Su Mundo, el kraft es un color neutro que va bien con cualquier paleta de color y creo que con esta va genial. 
Usé una encuadernación muy sencilla de anillas, ya que lo importante de este mini es la forma redonda. 

Como en todos mis minis, en este cuento una historia, que en este caso tiene que ver con el viaje que hicimos con mis amigas a Punta del Este en Noviembre del año pasado con motivo del evento Paper Fest.

Para contar mi historia recorté círculos en papel vegetal o vellum y escribí a máquina el texto. Decoré un poquito esta pagina con flores y estrellas que recorté de distintos papeles de la colección.

Algo que hice en este mini y que me gustó mucho como quedó es esta página de vellum con muchas palabras. Usé el abecedario de goma eva color gris y el abecedario de pegatinas color amarillo para escribir muchas palabras relacionadas con el tema de mi mini, siguiendo la forma circular de las páginas.

Durante el resto del mini seguí combinando paginas con foto, con texto y otras con palabras. Este es un álbum muy sencillo pero creo que quedó super armónico y cohesionado.

Espero que les haya gustado esta idea, es una manera muy entretenida y fácil de hacer un mini con muchas fotos.  Nos vemos un próximo post, besos!
