Off the Page Challenge: Unicorn Birthday Party by Caroli

Hello peeps, how are you? Caroli here and today I want to share a project I made using some Doodlebug goodness.

This month the Design Team was challenged to make an off the page project and I really loved this idea! Since I'm currently working on the birthday party of my little girl -which happens to be Unicorn themed- I decided to use gorgeous Fairy Tales collection to make some stuff for the party.

First thing I made is this invitation card. I kept it simple because later I will scan it and use it in a digital format, including the party information (when, where, what time) and send it to friends and family.



The card says #Isicumple9, which means "Isi turns 9" and is the hashtag I will use for the party related pics, so friends and family can find them all together on Instagram. 

I also decorated some white paper bags I will use to give some party favors to the little ladies attending to the event. I used this cute unicorn crown cutfile and some cardstock and patterned paper from Doodlebug.



Finally, I made some masks, which I also decorated with the unicorn crown cutfile. I bet all the little girls (and probably also the not so little ones!) will love to wear these 



Here is the full set. I love how cute and sweet they are! 



I am working in some other paper projects for this party, also using Doodlebug Design stuff, if you want to see how the party comes out you can follow me on Instagram, I'm @papelisima.

Have an awesome day!

Off the Page Challenge: Coffee with a Friend Mini Album

When was the last time you created a project about you and your girlfriends and/or sisters?   It had been a while for me, so I decided to use one of my favorite Doodlebug collections to make one.   Cream & Sugar was perfect for my mini because I love the colors and nothing in my world happens before I have coffee, so .....
Coffee IS always better with a friend!  Now, I don't have photos of me and my besties drinking coffee together.  I should, because it happens ... but it's an album about friendship, and since I have lots of those photos, it works!
How cute are those Doodlebug coffee mugs?!  Odds & Ends are one of my favorite embellishments.
The little journaling spot at the top of the page was cut from a sheet in the 6x6 paper pad.  I always get 12x12 and 6x6 papers ... both sizes come in handy for any project.
For the pages, I just cut the base coffee cup out several times using Doodlebug's Coffee To Go Cutting file, (also available as an SVG file in the Lori Whitlock SVG shop) made an internal offset of the shape, and cut the offset out from different pattern papers.  Then I punched a hole in the top corner and added some chunky twine (which, by the way, is another thing I don't think I could live without)!
Life IS sweet, and I can't imagine it without my friends.  I will tell you a few stories about these ladies over on my blog today so I hope you'll stop by Artsy Albums :)
Thanks for visiting Doodlebug's blog.  This project was made for our design team's "Off the Page" challenge.  I hope you'll visit each day to see more fun projects from everyone on the team.  Until next time, happy crafting everyone!

Off the Page Challenge: Candy Bar Sliders by Karen Hanson

Good morning Doodlebug fans! It's Karen, and today I am so excited to share an project for the design team's Off the Page challenge. While I have to admit that scrapbooking holds a dear place in my heart, I really do love creating all sorts of paper projects, so I was so excited to create a project for this challenge. And given all the cute new product that has made it's way to shelves this year from Doodlebug, this project had fun written all over it!
 
Now I do have to admit that this project - Candy bar sliders (or chocolate bar sliders as we call them up here in Canada) - are not new for me. I make these a lot! The are perfect little giveaways at birthday parties, but also make great thank-you gifts for friends or teachers or coworkers.
They are as simple as creating a sleeve out of paper that fits around the candy bar you chose (the textured cardstock is my favourite for the sleeve as it is sturdy and will withstand the ribbon being pulled in and out..oh, and the colours are amazing), and then embellishing them up!
 
 I used the adorable Fairy Tales collection for these little thank-you sliders that we gave to the grownups who attended my daughter's birthday party. It has perfect birthday-themed paper that I simply matted with white cardstock... ...created a little coordinating tag with some more cardstock, a piece of patterned paper (Item:5638 - sweet celebration), my favourite mini paperclips and a bit of doodle twine...
...and then topped off with a mix and match cupcake and cones die cut adhered with some foam adhesive for a bit of dimension.
They are simple enough that you can create a whole stack of them at a time to give away when someone around you deserves a little thank-you or perhaps just needs a little smile! Oh, and I guarantee that making them will be just as much fun as giving them away!
So there you have it! When you are itching to make a project that doesn't involve a picture, give these little cuties a go! Because really, the only thing better than chocolate is chocolate wrapped in Doodlebug! Thanks for stopping by! Hugs, Karen
