Hi everyone! Today Moon and I are going to show you some of our Simple Dori covers and share with you some tips about how to decorate yours.
I’ve been fortunate enough to find a theme for each of the Cocoa Daisy kits, so each of my Simple Doris have their own theme and cover. Here’s a picture of my current TN squad. 🙂
Here are some tips for decorating your cover:
Tip 1: Try some layering. Don’t be afraid to use different patterned papers and embellishments on top of each other. I love putting tags over some patterned papers or pocket cards.
Tip 2: Spell out your titles with alphabet stickers. Puffy stickers add a lot of dimension to a layout. You can also opt to use stamps, or try lettering/calligraphy.
Tip 3: Embellish covers with ephemera or stickers. I used a patch for my Merry Days cover.
Tip 4: Add some ribbon and tie on a piece of ephemera to act as a tag. I got this tip from Christine Everett’s Christmas album. 🙂
Tip 5: Just have fun with it. There is no right or wrong way to do it.
Moon and I worked with the Lemon Grove kit to make our latest Simple Dori Covers. Here’s what she said about her work: “I really love the color combo of yellow and blue! The lemon sticky notes are super cute, too!!” I totally agree!!
Here’s a close up of her cover. It’s so lovely!
Here’s my latest Simple Dori cover. The colors of the Lemon Grove kit remind me of a past summer vacation at Thunderbird Resort, La Union, Philippines. This trip happened in 2016 and oh my, I haven’t done anything to remember it by.
I trimmed this lovely patterned paper and attached it to the side of my dori. Then, I attached 2 label stickers which I used to hold the title of my album. I finished it off with a clear yellow flower which came from the Lemon Grove Classified Memory Keeping kit. So excited to scrap now.
Thank you for passing by the blog. Have fun decorating your dori covers. Just be sure to store your doris properly so that the cover elements won’t fall off.
Ria and Moon
