What's not to love about Doodlebug Designs' Lovebirds Collection?
Nothing that I can think of! I had a ball creating this heart-shaped album with nothing
but goodies from Doodle Bug
I've had a package of chipboard 'conversation' hearts in my stash for quite a long time now.
They're a nice size and heavyweight and great for a mini album.
After tracing and cutting out the heart shapes from different Lovebirds papers, I used
a heart doily and a couple of oval die-cut shapes for the matting. To achieve placement of
the sticker letters, I always start with the middle letter and work out on either side. I overlapped each
one a bit so that I wouldn't run out of room. A bead of fabric glue to the top of the stickers and I was
able to attach a length of baker's twine.
And you know I love trimming out the edges of the album with twine...just use a
ballpoint glue pen (I like Martha Stewart's) to adhere.
Areas of journaling are an important aspect to mini albums...at least I think so!
Whether it's a full page dedicated to journaling or just a side note, it's a good idea to make a
spot somewhere. Doodlebug collections give a variety of options to your noting needs :)
Fun around every corner! Mini notecards and envelopes, heart-shaped pearls and gems,
every color and pattern of washi under the sun.
Make a washi bow! I applied a length of washi to a sheet of cardstock and then cut.
Using a stylus or pen, gently roll the washi-cardstock until you've formed two loops. Just
take a scrap piece and glue around the center.
I love adding little details like stitching X's with twine or creating a sweet border effect.
With a piercing tool, mat, decorative template, twine and a large needle, you can create all sorts of
amazing designs to make your mini album or project unique!
