ABC's please!  With so many turning to school at home in recent days,  I thought I'd share this fun project that is educational and crafty!

To begin: I started with an assortment of Doodlebug cardstock and the tag die from the "Large Tags" Doodle Cuts set.  After die-cutting the 26 tags, I chose to add a coordinating oval of color to each using the die from the "Mini Tags" set.  

After die-cutting the letters using the "Alex Alphabet" dies, I attached them to the ovals with a glue pen.  Once all of the cards were done I laminated them with a heat laminator and then cut apart!

In finishing up the cards, I came back with an assortment of alpha and mini stickers to coordinate with each letter.  I also added some of the adhesive jewels to give each card a little sparkle.   The cards were then added to a shower curtain ring (or use a standard binder ring) and topped with a bow!
Have fun coming up with your own designs...and the REAL challenge of finding a sticker that matches the letter LOL  Such a fun activity for the kiddies :)

I love creating graphic designs on my layouts! I used the new Doodle Cuts Borders and Edges Dies and the Hey Cupcake collection to create a fun chevron background on today's layout. I love how it turned out so come take a look! 

​ I started by using the heart strips Borders and Edges die to cut out four strips in four different bold colors.
 I then used the graph design of the Lollies Patterned Paper to help me create the chevron design. I used the light pink stripe in the middle of the patterned paper as a guide to place the heart strips at an angle against. Using the different colors of the graph to see where to place the strips made this design so easy!  I then embellished my photo with some Odds & Ends pieces and Sprinkles. I also used the largest Doodle Cuts Nesting Scallops die to create a circular frame around my photo.

​ The Odds & Ends and Chit Chat Die Cut Packs make embellishing projects so easy. I also added some Sprinkles Self-Adhesive Shapes as confetti in the balloon. And isn't that little birdie just the cutest?!

​ I used the fun Abigail Alphabet in Swimming Pool and a Chit Chat Die Cut piece to create the title. I embellished the word 'GIRL' with a few of the round Sprinkles Self-Adhesive Shapes. I love the little bit of detail this adds! I then further embellished the title with Mini Icons Stickers. 

​ The Hey Cupcake collection is just perfect for helping me document my niece's birthday! I can't wait until her birthday rolls around again so I can take more pictures to document with this fun collection. And I think the heart strip die makes a pretty cool background design! 

​ Thanks for joining me today! I hope I have inspired you to grab some of the new Doodle Cuts Dies and the Hey Cupcake Collection for your next layout!

Birthdays always seem to be a time when we reach out to one another and celebrate, so one of my favourite parts of planning for a birthday has been figuring out how to say "thank-you" to those who help make it a special day. Little treat containers have become a part of our birthday traditions so the new Hey cupcake collection together with some of Doodlebug's new Doodle Cuts are a welcome addition to my crafty collection! These little tags used to decorate the treat tube came together really easily with these new products. Using a combination of the Large Tag Doodle Cuts and the Mini Tag Doodle Cuts gave me a variety of tags that were easy to layer together to create dimension. The Birthday Girl Stamp set has a number of cute little characters that are a perfect size for the mini tags. With a bit of masking to add a party hat, and a quick colour with some alcohol markers, the tags each took on a style of their own. And with some fun washi tape, a sentiment from the Occasions many Thanks Doodle stamps and and my new favourite Shape Sprinkles called...well...Sprinkles, these little little tags were everything I needed them to be! A simple way to say thank-you for helping to make a birthday special.
Thanks for stopping by!
