Doggone Cute mini album for Doodlebug Design

Tuesday, June 6, 2023

For me, scrapping dog photos is a bit hard... First, I don't have a dog, so I don't really have dog photos and second, often dog collections have more masculine colors and those who know me, know that I love pink and girly colors... hahaaa. Bu I think I managed to make a very cool dog themed mini album with the lovely Doogone Cute collection.

To start this album, I cut apart one of the patterned papers that has 12 little cards to cut apart. I used 8 of them, all of the ones that are vertical. To each card, I attached a little white 3x1 inch tab, that I scored  and folded through the middle.

I then created the base for the album, using very thick cardboard and patterned papers to wrap around. I then too a piece of cardstock that was slightly smaller than the cardboard piece and cut 8 parallel slits into it, leaving 1cm (around 1/2 inch) between each slit. I slided the tab of each card into it and adhered it on the back. Then, I adhered the whole piece (cardstock rectangle plus all the cards) to my cardboard base. That way, I was able to have all of the cards, one on top of the other.

I then went through all the cards and used all kinds of embellishments on them. I used Chit Chat die cuts, Odds&Ends die cuts, enamel dots and shapes, Doodle Pops, puffy stickers, cardstock stickers...

For the cover, I used acetate. I cut a long rectangle and scored it at 1inch and at 2 inches, then I folded it. I attached it to the back using double sided tape.
I wanted to embellish the cover and I chose to do it with embroidery thread. I used five of the colors of the collection and I wrapped each color around the cover 4 times. I used the colors in rainbow order, so it looks very cool. Then I also added puffy sticker paws and enamel stars in each color. At the top of the cover, I added a Shaker Pop and at the bottom, I added two circles that I attached using a brad, for the closure of the album. I added a picec of thread behind the album and sandwiched the end of the thread between two puffy stickers. 

Last but not least, I added an eyelet to the spine of the album and added the amazing charm clip & keychain.
I think the album is very cute and and amazing gift for a kid. 
I hope you had fun discovering the process of this album and I will see you soon.
