Teeny tiny cute mini books using Lots of Love collection from Doodlebug Design

Monday, January 31, 2022

Are you a sucker for cuteness too... ? Everything mini sized is cute, right? :) 

For this project, I created the teeny tiniest thing I've ever done... super small coptic books using the envelope die in the Lots of Love collection. 

When I saw the envelope dies in the collection, I was sold! I knew I needed to create something with them. I love to create coptic books and so I thought, it could be a cool idea to create super small ones. 

So to start, I used the die to cut out 12 envelopes from different patterned papers from the 6x6 paper pad.  Then I also cut out a few patterned paper rectangles and folded them to have "pages" to include in the album too. 

I then used embroidery thread and used the book binding technique to make coptic books out of the envelopes and pages. I also added some beads to the spine. 

To each envelope, I added some tiny tags and notes, I cut out from the 6x6 paper pad. I decorated the front with doodle pops, enamel shapes and stickers. I think they turned out super cute!!! :) They're such a sweet little gift for friends for Valentine's Day :)

I hope you like my cute mini books and are inspired to create some too.

Santa Claus is coming to town layout for DOODLEBUG DESIGN

Sunday, January 23, 2022

Christmas is over but now comes the good part... scrapping all the new photos :)

For this project I created a layout using one of the photos I took the day before and using the super cute new cutfiles from the Let it Snow collection.

This layout actually came together super fast. I let my Silhouette machine cut out all the parts to create Santa and the deer and then I adhered everything together. For more detail and dimension, I used daubers to put shadows on the characters and also a white pen for highlights.

For the background, I used my Gelatos in blue, pink and green. I just used a baby wipe and smooshed some color on the background. 
Like I said, the photo is from Christmas day, my sister, brother and I took it as a gift for my mom. 
I matted it with some patterned papers. 

I placed both characters and my photo on the background and then adhered it, using doubled sided tape, foam tape and super thick foam squares to have different heights. 
For the title, I used one of the die cuts from the chit chat pack, saying "Santa Claus is coming to town". 

Then came the fun part of going through the Doodle Pops, Jewels and stickers and adding everything that made the layout even cuter.

I hope you like the layout and are inspired to create cute things using the Let it Snow collection and matching cutfiles.
