Doodlebug Design | Cute & Crafty Slimline Cards

I love making slimline cards.  The different shape and size give you so much more space to be creative!  I haven't made any in a while and thought the Cute & Crafty Collection would be perfect for a few new ones!  Take a peek...

My first card uses the fun flowers from the Bits & pieces pack. I scattered the flowers along a frame, popping them up for a bit of dimension.

For my sentiment, I used the hello in the All Occasion Doodle Cuts.  

For my next card I used some of the fun icons from the Odds & Ends and Icon Stickers.  I added them to a few die cut frames so it looked like they were peeking out.  The sentiment is from the Chit Chat Pieces.

I just love those little Copic Markers!!

For my last card I used some of the adorable little colored pencils from the Odds & Ends and stitched some drawing lines using some embroidery thread.

The top and bottom lines were 'free-style" stitched.  For the hello, I used the negative of the hello cut out from my first card as a template.

Now I have a few "just because" cards on hand... which is always a good thing!  You never know when a friend needs a little hello.  Have you made any projects using Cute & Crafty?  Be sure to tag Doodlebug Design 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 Notebook Mini Album

I have fallen deeply and madly in love with all of the adorable icons in the Cute & Crafty Collection.  They are just so sweet!  One of my favorites is the little notebook... that cute smile is just fabulous! I decided to make a mini book using it as my inspiration.  Take a peek... 

I started with the Cute & Crafty Notebook SVG file, and edited it to take out the spirals so I could add my own using my binding tool.  Once I had the cover, I set to filling my book. For my pages, I used the Cute & Crafty Coordinating Petite prints pack.  If you're not familiar, these packs are full of fun tone on tone prints that work perfectly with the collection.   

I wanted to make this a more "all purpose" mini, where my previous 2 books were "scrapbooking" focused.  The Bits & Pieces were the perfect solution. I just love all the pieces in this pack!  Lots of flowers, tabs, labels.  So much to work with!  I also used some of the cut-aparts from the Happy Thoughts Cardstock, Chit Chat pieces and Odds & Ends.

I could not resist using some of the buttons from the Odds & Ends Pack... they just make me smile!  Also the big words from the Chit Chat pack are a fun way to embellish a page.

I really had fun putting this one together!  Have you created any projects using Cute & Crafty?  Be sure to tag Doodlebug Design on Facebook & Instagram.  We always love to see what you create.  That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!
