Sugar Shoppe: Fabulous & Fifeteen Layout

Hi Everyone!  Kathy here today with two fun projects I created using the Sweet Shoppe Collection.  Sweet Shoppe definitely goes on the books as one of my all time favorite collections!  I just adore the combination of colors!  For my first project, I created a layout featuring my daughter blowing out her birthday candles last summer.

 I loved all of the papers, I wanted to showcase them all!  I decided that a fun layered look would work!  And of course I couldn't pass up using the fun garland!

There are some great stickers with Sweet Shoppe included this cake and balloon!  I used some Bumblebee twine to hand stitch the balloon string.

I also used some of the Sugar Shoppe Pixies to embellish my layout.  They were the perfect addition!

For my second project, I designed this fun shaped birthday card.  We've had a whole slew of Sweet 16 birthday parties this year!  Everything from a simple dinner out with a couple of friends to full scale semi formal dress up parties!  I'm just glad I have until the summer to come up with something, and am thankful that my daughter is thinking more along the lines of a PJ-clad, Just Dance-off kind of party!

I created the card in 3 layers to show off more of the fun papers from the collection!  I added more of the balloon stickers from the Icon Stickers and tied them together with some Doodlebug twine!

Now for something fun!  I'd love to share the cut file I created to make this card!  You can download it here!  I hope you enjoy it.  That's all for me today...make sure to keep checking in to see all of the Doodlebug Design Team's projects!  Thanks for stopping by!

Sugar Shoppe: Create-a-Cards by Amanda

Amanda here.... I love making and giving handmade birthday cards.  Using Doodlebug's Create-a-Card system makes it extra quick and easy.  The colorful card bases are cut to size and come with coordinating envelopes.  I paired the super darling Sugar Shoppe Collection with Create-a-Card to make some sweet birthday girl cards. 

I added layer upon layer of patterned paper and stickers to this card, along with a treat bag.  Leave the treat bag empty or tuck in a gift card or some cash.  

I die cut flower petals and assembled a flower, arranging the petals to make it similar to an orchid or violet.  
I absolutely love Doodlebug's stitched mini garlands!  I simply cut sections of the garland and adhered them to the front of the card.  It makes for a fun and easy design. 

I tucked the sentiment banner into the window and added a couple of shiny Sprinkles dots.  

Pixie straws and flags are not just for cupcakes!  Use them to create custom embellishments for your cards.  And be sure to break out your Doodlebug sequins to add some extra sparkle.  

I adhered the flags to the card with a double layer of foam squares to keep them in place. 

Have a great day!

Sugar Shoppe: Let's Party, Girl! Party Set by Shellye

Hello, friends!  Are you ready for a party?!?
Whether you're an 'older' girl or a young 'un, there's
nothing more fun than the new 
by Doodlebug Design

As you can see, I have gathered together some fun party goods
that would surely bring delight to a little (or big) birthday girl!

First up, we have the birthday girl's crown!  
 I found this cute tiara template online at 
The template shows using the tiara as a front piece only, but for mine
I chose to combine two of them together so that it fits more like a crown.
The front was embellished with some handmade crepe paper ruffle,
some of the Sugar Shoppe stickers and of course, some jewels!

Above, you can see that I also covered the inside but only after
I adhered a pom pom trim around the top edge.

After punching two small holes (at each side), I inserted medium-sized brads
to hold together.  You will want to make adjustments according to the size crown that's needed.

 And every party needs party favors!  With a few paper punches, die-cut shapes and sequins
you can send your guests home with a very original treat.

Ice cream soda?  Fill a glass jar with colorful straws and then embellish the outside
with bands of fun washi tapes!  I love that the tape can be removed and then the jar
can be used again for a different theme.

Finally, here's a look at my Sugar Shoppe party all I need are the guests!
