Back To School - Doodlebug Design

First day of school is an important day in our family, I have documented that day for my little girl since she was on playgroup, so this School Days collection was perfect for some of the photos I have taken of her last years.

I created this simple layout featuring a big title cut file because I wanted to feature many patterned papers of the 6x6 pad, love the patterns in this collection! I created the title myself using Arial Black font and offset tool in Silhouette Cameo software.




I used foam dots to create a title with different levels, I love the effect! Also few Shape Sprinkles here and there to make it more fun and interesting.



I love Doodle Pops and I keep on trying to use them more on my layouts, in this one I created a fun cluster with Odds&Ends and few Doodle Pops, love how it came out.





I love how simple and colorful this layout is, and also that it documents a happy memory of my garland our family.

Montevideo - Doodlebug Design

I really love to travel, I try to do it as often as possible and I enjoy every minute of a trip. Said this, I Heart Travel collection is simply perfect for documenting all these travel photos! I love the colors and all the travel concept of this collection.





Last year I had the luck of traveling abroad few times and of course I took a lot of photos, so I decided to use this one from the time I went to Montevideo, Uruguay.

I went for a really simple design, with a light patterned paper as bad and a blank space filled with embellishment. I love this kind of composition because although its filled with stuff it still looks clean and simple.



Of course I loved all the embellishments of this collection, so I used plenty of diecuts from the Odds&Ends and the Chit Chat packages. This time also used some stamps here and there too, just to add an extra detail to the composition.



I love the new product include in this collection, the Chit Chat Travel Tags! These tags are gorgeous and perfect to be used as journaling spot. I use one of them with this purpose, love the result.



Since the photo included the name of the city, somehow it was the title of the layout, so I decided to include the name of the country to finish the title idea. I used green Abigail aha for this.





I hope you like this idea, and if you give it a try don't forget to tag me on instagram (@papelisima) or leave me a message here. Thank you for stopping by today!

Feliz Cumpleaños - Anita y Su Mundo

Hola! Cómo están? Hoy les quiero mostrar una layout sencilla y entretenida que hice con la bonita colección Felicidades de Anita y Su Mundo.

Cuando recibí esta colección me gustó mucho, los colores pasteles (me encanta la combinación de turquesa y coral) y los lindos patrones de los papeles, ideales para fotos de cumpleaños alegres.

Busqué algunas fotos del cumpleaños pasado de mi hija y me puse manos a la obra! Esto es lo que resultó:



Usé como centro de mi diseño un archivo de corte de mi máquina troqueladora electrónica. Esta es una excelente opción cuando queremos usar muchos patrones de papel diferentes en una sola layout sin sobrecargarla.



Siempre digo que me gustan mucho los elementos de la lámina de recortables y los de esta colección me encantaron! Una buena idea también puede ser decorar un poco más los recortables, por ejemplo con los enamel dots de la colección de básicos de Anita.



Combinar fotos redondas y cuadradas es siempre una buena idea, aporta variedad y hace que la layout sea más llamativa. En este caso aproveché el diseño de gris del archivo de corte para combinar fotos y papeles estampadois también. 



Para el título de mi página recorté la palabra "cumpleaños" con mi troqueladora electrónica y la fuente gratuita "Learning Curve" y lo complementé con los abecedarios de goma eva de los básicos de Anita. 


Al usar archivos de corte una buena idea es aplicar costura (ya sea a mano o a máquina) encima de ellos, de esta manera el corte se adhiere mejor a la hoja y además se ve más bonito. Recomiendo que si usan esta técnica apliquen la costura dando vueltas a la máquina con la mano, ya que al ser diseños pequeños, y a veces intrincados, apretar el pedal podría ser una jugada arriesgada.

Espero que les haya gustado esta idea y se animen a hacer algo con esta hermosa y entretenida colección. 

Si tienen algun trabajo con ella o con alghuna de las demás colecciones de Anita y Su Mundo no olviden etiquetarnos con el ht #anitacreaciones. Un beso!

Love of My Life - Doodlebug Design

I used to be a mom of a adorable girl for so long, and when I knew I was pregnant again -and this time with a boy- my heart exploded of happiness. 

I was warned by friends that life totally changes being mom of a boy, and oh boy, how true is that! Being the mom of a little mister is such a blast, he is so funny, always makes me laugh and warms my heart when he gives me flowers or kiss me goodbye when leaving to school. 

I made this layout to document this love, the love of my life <3 and="" boyfriend="" collection="" for="" french="" i="" kiss="" little="" lol="" lovely="" me="" my="" nbsp="" of="" p="" perfect="" photo="" this="" used="">



I wanted to create something different so I used a big circle shaped cut file and backed it with this lovely flowery patterned paper. The, I dared to get out of my comfort zone and used some stamps on my page, around the circle cut file. I combined the stamping with lots of different Shape Sprinkles, I love the result!




For the title I used my electronic cutting machine and free font Better Together and also some Teensy Typo stickers alpha.



I even got to use some embellishments from the Odds & Ends package and a Doodle Pop, I love all the volume this embellishment cluster has!


I am so satisfied with the result of this page, it was so easy to do and I used stamps!! I feel so proud of myself, lol!
I hope you liked this idea and give it a try, thank you for stopping by today here, see you on a next post!

Vamos a Jugar - Anita y Su Mundo

Hola! Cómo están? Hoy quiero mostrarles una layout super sinple y entretenida que hice con la bonita colección Sobre Ruedas. 

Si bien los jueguetes no tienen género, las que tenemos niños a veces quisieramos papeles y adornos con íconos más clasicamente masculinos, como un autito o un camión y con este fin, la colección Sobre Ruedas es perfecta.




Como pueden ver, use un diseño muy simple para construir mi layout. Como les comenté en posts anteriores, estoy en una cruzada por usar más fondos con diseño y en esta layout también lo intenté. 

Usé un papel estampado en la mitad de la página, y como me encanta el diseño de este papel recorté algunas de ñas figuritas de la otra mitad de la hoja y las pegué con almohadillas dimensionales, de esta manera se destaca el patrón y se ve más entretenido.

 


Para el título usé letras de goma eva color azul y las combiné con una palabra que corté con mi máquina electronica y la fuente gratuita Better Together. Me encanta combinar fuentes manuscritas y otras imprenta, se ve bonito y agrega un toque de diseño especial.



Otro recurso de diseño que usé fue repetir la misma foto, una grande y rectangular y otra pequeña circular, se ve bonito y hace que la layout sea más entretenida.





Como pueden ver, es una layout super sencilla, con varios elementos, fondo decorado, pero aun así sigue siendo muy Clean & Simple, que es lo que me gusta más hacer. 

Espero que les haya gustado y que se atrevan a probar esta idea de diseño, si lo hacen recuerden compartir en las reques con el HT #anitacreaciones!!  Besos

COLORS - Doodlebug Design

I love colors, anything, anywhere, anytime! I love wearing colorful clothes, living in a colorful space, making colorful scrapbooks, and the list goes on and on.

I really enjoy being this colorful, and as someone told me the other day, it's not just about the clothes, it's a statement and a way of life, and this is what I wanted to document in this super colorful layout.



I went for a sunburst design with rainbow colors, the products of Doodlebug Design are perfect for this colorful and rainbowy idea I had in mind, the colors are so bright and happy.

Some of my favorite items from all those manufactured by Doodlebug are Doodlepops and Sprinkles, and I wanted to use plenty of then in this layout. I looked for the colors I needed on my stash and just used a huge bunch of them!nI love the volume of this kind of embellishments.





For my title I used some Teensy Typo alphas in white color and a word I cut on my Silhouette Cameo using free font Better Together in purple cardstock. The title is part of one of my fave songs ever, by Canadian band Arcade Fire.


I love how this layout came out, its so happy and colorful, and it documents the current moment of my life, which happens to be like a colorful sunburst :)



I hope you liked this idea, it is a super fast and easy layout and I feel so satisfied that I used a huge amount of embellishments, specially Doodle Pops.

Casa Pueblo - Doodlebug Design

I love to travel, knowing new places, getting lost in a city I visit for the first time, most of the time you get to discover something nice :)

In this page I wanted to document the happiness of visiting a lovely museum called Casa Pueblo, in Uruguay last year. I got to visit this beautiful place by the sea along with my friends and it was certainly a happy memory, so I document it in a layout.



In this case I didn't want to get too crazy thinking about complicated ideas to work on my layout, so went for a really simple circle and layers design, you know how i love circles. Here is my layout:




I used foam dots and different embellishments in order to create layers and volume, machine stitching is also a good way to make a page more interesting and eye catching.





As you can se, it is such a simple layout, with lots of little details and happy memories. Sometimes, the simpler the better :) I hope you like this idea, thank you for stopping by here at Doodlebug Design's blog today.
Have a lovely day!


Paper Fest Travellers Notebook Part I - Doodlebug Design

Hello there!! Today I want to share a project that is very special to me, a travelers notebook about the scrapbook event I attended last year (yeah, that event I have told you about on previous posts, I cant get enough of documenting it, haha!).

My plan was to document it on the go, but then I realized it would be impossible because I was so busy having fun, so I decided to write my thoughts and work on it later.

I used Hello collection and one of the gorgeous Daily Doodles with matching patterns. The pics are everything!












This is the first batch of this TN, I have another insert filled with more happy memories I plan to share soon, so stay tuned.
Do you like to document life on travelers notebooks? I just love this format, it's fun and easy and fast to work, not to mention beautiful Daily Doodles :)

Thank you for stopping by today, have a lovely day!
