A Series of Doodlebug Hip Hip Hooray Birthday Layouts

I am so happy to be sharing some Birthday layouts on Doodlebug's Blog today using their newest Hip Hip Hooray Collection!  I adore the bright and cheerful colors in this fun line!  I actually don't have boys, but I thought the colors were a perfect match for my daughter's recent "Minion" themed party.  :)

First up I have a layout featuring a border of pennants to show off all the yummy prints in the 6x6 paper pad.  For my embellishment focal point, I popped up the balloon icon stickers with foam tap and "tied" them to the monster sticker with twine.

I combined Doodlebug's "birthday" phrase from their icon sticker sheet with a die cut title using some matching petite prints paper.  To add a playful feel to my title I added the birthday hat sticker to my Letter "B" and dotted my "i" with a star rhinestone.

I was on a roll and thought it might be nice to keep the birthday looking somewhat consistent in my album so I went ahead and created a couple more layouts to share with you.  For my next one I wanted to recreate the look of party confetti by mixing dripped spray mist, doodle sprinkles, star brads, star stickers and circles punched from the Hip Hip Hooray Pixies set.

I printed my journaling on a Hip Hip Hooray Simply Put Album Insert and made my title using Tangerine Shin-Dig Sugar Coated CS Stickers paired with a Silhouette cut subtitle (font: KG Strawberry Limeade).

For my last layout I wanted to do something with a twist on the popular pocket page trend and create my own pockets from patterned paper.  After adhering my 12-inch wide pockets across the page, I stitched around the three sides of my layout and set to work filling the pockets.

I love finding fun ways to use the Simply Put Album Inserts on traditional layouts and cards and this style of page is perfect for that.  I dressed up the inserts with strips of patterned paper, stickers and brads after running one of them through my printer for my journaling.

I cut apart the 6x4 wish list card from the set to be a smaller 3x3 card.  To emphasize the treat bag theme in my photos, I took one of Doodlebug's Treat Bags and tucked it in my pocket, wrapping it with twine and another one of the tags found in the pixie set.

I finished off my layout using a ticket sticker layered with some more pennants.  I love carrying little bits of each page over into the next to create a cohesive look.

To speed up my design process for the layouts I've shared today I turned to some of my favorite sketches by Allison Davis & Debbie Sanders at Scrapbook Generation.

I hope I've inspired you to dig into this collection with some of your own favorite birthday photos!  ;)
