Doodlebug Design | Fun at the Park Autograph Book

We have been to Disney a good number of times, and each time we still feel the magic!  When my daughter was about 6, she made it her mission to see all of the characters around the park, and get their autographs.  It was adorable.  So when I saw the Fun at the Park Collection I immediately thought to make an autograph book.  Take a peek...

I love the little heart shape in the Odds & Ends and decided to model my autograph book after that.  I used a heart shape in my Silhouette, welded on a little tab for my binding and decorated the front with Petite Prints and the hearts side of the Tea-riffic Time Cardstock.  I even wrapped some mini dots paper around a marker to bring along for signings!

Inside each spread I have a page for a photo (because we must get photos with each character as well!!) and a place for each character to sign.  I made little eared balloon pieces for a project a few years ago (see here) and I thought it would be cute to make them into  "sign here pieces" with a little doodle twine tail.  I also framed all of the autograph spots with some coordinating paper frills.  Here are some more views of the inside pages...

The Character Autograph ticket from the Chit Chat pieces is just perfect!

I just love all the cute balloons and fireworks in the Bits & Pieces Pack!  And the shaped sprinkles are so fun to spread around.

My now 23 year old daughter has now volunteered to go back and get this book filled with more autographs if I would only send her there!  We just might have to make another family trip!

Doodlebug Design | Cute & Crafty Shaped Cards

The Cute & Crafty Collection is absolutely one of my all-time favorites!  The little icons all just make me happy!  I decided that they would make some super-cute shaped cards.  The only problem... which ones should I choose?  It was not an easy decision, but I was able to pick just a few!  Take a peek...

I loved the rainbow stack of pencils on the little squares side of the Perfectly Plaid cardstock.  I decided to create my own using the Cute & Crafty Pencil & Eraser SVG.  I made multiples of the pencil in a rainbow of coordinating Petite Prints.  Their little faces just make me happy!  I stacked them up and added some mini heart rainbow sprinkles and a sentiment from the This & That Sticker Sheet.

For my next card I chose to use the Cute & Crafty Bobbins SVG.  Again I used the Coordinating Petite Prints Pack to piece it together and finished it off with another sentiment from the This & That Sticker Sheet. 

I love the punny sentiment!

For my last card I used the Cute & Crafty Camera SVG.  I thought it would be fun to make the camera lens a shaker.  I cut 10 circles from chipboard, stacked them up then added some Doodlebug Sequins and a piece of acetate.  To finish him off, I added a smile sticker from the Chit Chat pieces.

I have a tutorial on my blog here showing how to create shaped cards using Silhouette and a cut file here.  You could also create them in Cricut in a similar manner using the Offset and weld functions. Have you created any projects using the Cute & Crafty Cut files?  Be sure to tag Doodlebug on Facebook and Instagram.  We love to see what you create! That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!
