Calendar Challenge: Scrapping Baby's Growth Layout by Brigit Mann

Hello Doodlebug Fans, it's Brigit here to share a Cream & Sugar Calendar page using a sheet from the Daily Doodles collection.  I wanted something special for my grandson's first year of monthly photos and this collection is absolutely perfect for this project.

All the die cuts I used are from the Cream & Sugar Odds and Ends pack.  These really helped me put this layout together very quickly,

As a family we go to Chowderfest in Saratoga Springs, NY every year, it's on the first Saturday in February.  You go around to each restaurant and for a dollar you get a cup of chowder and at the end you vote for your favorite, it's such a fun weekend.  Well this cup is full of chowder, and yep we got donuts up there too.

Baby Everett is my first grandchild so he is all about sweet hugs & kisses, this Cream & Sugar collection totally reminds me of him!!

I love that the Odds and Ends pack have everything you need to put a layout together, like the cute little banner pieces, I just added some Doodlebug letters with some Doodlebug Swimming Pool Twine.  The Sprinkles Washi Tape adds a nice border to the top and bottom.

I'm so looking forward to the rest of the layouts I create using these Daily Doodle pages.

Here is a list of all the Doodlebug products I used

Doodlebug Letter Stickers
Doodlebug Swimming Pool Doily
Doodlebug Swimming Pool Twine

I hope you've enjoyed these projects, thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Easter Express Collection: Carrot Boxes by Wendy Sue Anderson

Hi Doodlebug friends!  It's Wendy Sue here today, sharing one of my most favorite Easter projects EVER!

I absolute adore the new "Easter Express" collection and I knew as soon as I opened it up that it was going to make some super cute little treat containers for some friends!

I used a "carrot box" cut file (HERE), along with some "petite prints" paper to create the carrot shaped boxes.

 The tops are tied with chunky doodle twine, then I added some shaped clips to the bows - I think they look like sweet little charms!  I also added a small strip of coordinating doodle tape to each box, about 1/3 of the way up from the bottom!

The tags are simple die-cut circles from various papers from the 6x6 paper pad, and embellished with lots of sweet animal stickers!

I used foam adhesive behind the stickers, because I just love that teensy bit of dimension it adds.

Of course, I had to fill them up with some of my favorite Easter candies before I gave them away:

Wouldn't these be cute tucked into an Easter basket?  I think they would!

Do you like to create your own packaging for treats?  I'd love to see what you're giving away this Easter - please leave a link in the comment section below!

Happy Easter!
♥ Wendy Sue

Easter Express Collection: Easter Egg Card and Gift Bag With Kathy

Hi Everyone!  It's Kathy today with a sweet shaker card and gift bag I created using the new Easter Express!  Take a peek...

I started with this cut file for the adorable little egg-shaped bag.  I used the flowered side of the Chickie Babies paper for the box and decorated it with a bunny from the Odds & Ends, and one of the word strips from the Springtime Stripes Paper.

Just fill it with some Easter grass and some treats and it's the perfect little gift!  I searched for the perfect card to accompany this box, and ended up making one of my own!  I created a Silhouette file for the shaker card below...

This card reminds me of those diorama sugar Easter eggs from when I was little!  I decorated the inside with another bunny and some flowers from the Odds & Ends and added some Doodlebug Sequins for the shakers!  Now something for you!  I'd love to share the Silhouette cut file for this card with you!  You can download it from my cut-files page for free here!  That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!
