It isn’t often I walk into my local scrapbook shop and find something I have no idea exists – and it delights me when it happens! On this particular day, I became totally smitten with Doodlebug “mini icon” stickers. Basically, you get two (identical) sheets of adorable stickers that match their lines, and are sized much smaller to better fit projects of mine. Color me excited!

There are a few key differences namely that the stickers are on a much thinner paper (vs heavy cardstock), and of course the size. The decorative strip down the side isn’t “cut out”- but you can easily cut it yourself into a sticker which I think is a lot of fun. You could punch shapes into it, use a die cut machine to cut it, or just use scissors and cut a strip!
I really like them for journaling cards, and I think they’ll be great on greeting cards as well. I’m always looking for little decorations for my scrapbook journaling cards and this is much faster (and let’s be honest – better done) than me stamping, coloring, and cutting out all these images. Lovely!
I also know these will be great in my planner! I like that I can mix & match some to fit any design or spread. Immediately I claimed the really cute cherry on top cake for my own birthday.
Simon Says Stamp (link) has a great assortment of the mini icon stickers- including the dragon ones my daughters just can’t get enough of.
Scrapbook.com just got the new Yankee Doodle ones that have the cutest little camper and fun fireworks too.
Both girls have taken sheets (lucky that there are 2 sheets of each design!) to begin adorning their school year planners for next year. It’s June after all – and that means the new planners are out (terrifying! time flies!) and they’re having a blast decorating special dates and just the corners of things where it would otherwise be plain.
I really hope we continue to see these from Doodlebug because this size (along with the absolutely adorable designs) works so well for gift wrap, tags, cards, journaling cards, planners – and more! I love seeing long time favorite companies continue to update and adjust products to work for even more kinds of paper crafting.
