Doodlebug Sweet Things Mini Album

Doodlebug is always a favorite at The colors are traditonal and match fabulously with other companies out there. I came across this AMAZING Mini Album on Doodlebugs blog. Traci Penrod, one of Doodlebug's designers, put together this amazing album using a Teal Simple Stories 6x8 binder. This is one of my favorite colors so I think it so cool that she used it to make this binder. She took different elements from the Doodlebug Sweet Things Collection and it just came together beautifully. I love the color combinations of red, teal, white and black with a hint of pink. Check out other great ideas at Doodlebugs blog and check out for Doodlebugs fabulous products. Happy Crafting!!! Jacqueline

Paint the blocks around the edges. One coat is all you need. To save paint and drying time, don’t paint where your paper will go. Squirt the wood glue onto the block. Use the same sponge brush to spread and smooth out the glue. Be sure to rinse well so your brush won’t dry hard.

Place the paper on the block. Smooth out all the air bubbles and edges. Sand down the edges to make your paper even with the wood.  Add embellishments of your choice to enhance the design. We like adding pop dots to add a little dimension.

Simple Stories NEW line HOPE

We have all been touched by cancer in our lives.  Whether it is a family member, a friend, co-worker or the neighbor next door, this disease does not discriminate, it affects everyone. The one thing that I find is every cancer patient has a unique, amazing story. I stand in awe of their will to fight this horrible disease. I admire the support they receive from their family and friends.  February is National Cancer Prevention Month. I thought that this brand new line from Simple Stories  "HOPE" was so fitting for the month of February.

This new line "HOPE" is so full of love, and encouragement. It is the perfect line to chronicle someones story or to give encouragement to troubled friends. The pink and the endearments of love and compassion make it a perfect Valentine line as well. This new line is now available at We love all of you and give a special shout out to those that are battling cancer. Big hugs and lots of love from us at Happy Crafting!!! Jacqueline
