Flamingo Watching | Doodlebug Fun In The Sun




Good monday morning everyone I hope you had a spectacular weekend! I'm here today with a layout I made with my remnants of the Doodlebug Fun In The Sun 12x12 kit. I used the "Freaky Fast Formula" from the scrapbook, this is my first time attempting such a challenge, boy is it fun!


They give you a formula, pictured here, and you have to come up with a layout based on the pieces you've cut.

One technique is to cut scrap paper into the assigned sizes first, determine your placement, and then determine which patterned paper to use. 

I didn't want to waste paper though so I just kid if pictured it all in my head and went from there



I started with a 12x12 piece of yellow gingam card stock for my background piece, and went with white for the largest assigned piece 10x12. I wanted a lot of white space on this layout to let the doodlebug papers pop. 

Next I just cut everything else out with whichever paper I thought would work best, and then trial and errored my placement until I found what worked.  What I started with changed a few times before it became what I ended up with. 














After I had my photos matted and finalized my layout placement, I started the embellishing. I've been dying to use Lori Whitlock's doodlebug cut files, and since I was short on embellishments left with this kit, I decided to cut out some of the coordinating SVGs from her shop. They were super simple to cut and put together with my Cricut.


My title came from some fun gold thickers I found at Joanne's or Michael's store combine with some paper stickers from another kit. 



For the 3x3 circle from the formula I used an oldie but goodie quikcutz doily die, and and added some extra embellishing from a print then cut file from The Cut Shoppe




That's all for now, Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you'll join me on my crafty journey, find more crafty fun on my Instagram and Facebook Page
