Doodlebug Design | Cute & Crafty Caddie Mini Album

I love all sorts of mini albums.  Traditional and non-traditional, so when I saw the adorable Craft Caddie from the Cute & Crafty cut files  I started thinking that a 3D caddie would make an adorable mini!  I set to work making an actual tote, and filled it with "cards" that are actually scrapbook pages!  Take a peek...

It's along the idea of a "recipe box" type album... a tote which holds the different pages.  I added some of the fun tools from the Odds & Ends to the tops of the pages so they stick up like an actual tool tote!  Of course, my tool tote is not nearly this neat or this cute!

The base of the box uses the Cute & Crafty Craft Caddie SVG.  I sandwiched a couple of small boxes between the layers to hold the pages.  I added the scissors, craft blade and rub-on tool from the Odds & Ends to the side pockets.  All that was left was to create some pages!

Cute & Crafty has so many fun embellishments, it's hard to decide which ones to use!  I started with these pages, but there is definitely room for more! 

I can't wait for my next in person crop!  I plan on taking LOTS of photos with friends to fill this little tote.  Have you made any projects using the Cute & Crafty Collection?  Be sure to tag @doodlebugdesign on Facebook & Instagram.  We LOVE to see your creations!  That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek.

Doodlebug Design | Cute & Crafty Mini Album

One of my favorite activities is scrapping with friends.  Over the past year plus, I've missed being able to get together for fun weekend crops and seeing my scrappy buddies!  One of my favorites, the Crop on the Cape had to be cancelled the last 2 years... so I'm more than excited for 2022!  When I saw all the cuteness in the Cute & Crafty Collection, I decided to make a mini album so that I'd be all set to document what is guaranteed to be a fabulous time!

I started with the Cute & Crafty - Instagram Camera cut file from the Lori Whitlock SVG Shop as the base of my mini.  For the lens, I created a fun shaker filled with Doodlebug Sequins! 

I love how the SVG file had a photo coming from the camera, so I decided to create a slider for my album cover.  On the little photo that slides out I added my album title using some My Type Alphas. Once I had the cover done, I set to work decorating the different pages.

There are so many embellishments in this collection!  I picked my favorites from the Chit Chats, Bits & Pieces, the Odds & Ends, Icon Stickers, This & That Stickers and the mini icons to decorate the pages.  Oh and don't forget the adorable shaped sprinkles!  Here are some close ups...

Once I was all done with the pages, I bound my album using my Cinch Mini.  I cannot wait to get to the crop and take photos!  Have you made any projects using the new Cute & Crafty Collection?  Don't forget to tag Doodlebug Design on Facebook & Instagram.  We love to see what you create!  That's it for me today, thank you for stopping by to peek!
