Partying It Up: Birthday Set by Anita Bownds

Hi there Doodlebug peeps 
Anita here today sharing birthday gift set using the fairy tales collection 
I created this set for my daughters 13th birthday..

With the card I cut 2 panels from the cut apart patterned paper and folded it in half to make a card 
Then I cut some copy paper and added it in too the middle of the card and machine stitched it down the middle 
Then I add a few stickers on the front of the card

I decided to create a 3D cupcake 
I started with a water balloon and paper mached over the top of the balloon 
Then I traced out a cupcake pattypan and cut out and adhered it around the paper mache
Then I cut a paper straw to size and polled a hole in the top of the cupcake 
Next I used white heavy gesso over the top of the cupcake like icing then using the glitter while the gesso was wet so the glitter would stick then I added some sequins over the top and let it dry 
Next to keep the sequins and glitter from falling of I add a 3d gloss gel over it..

Partying it Up: Book Themed Baby Shower with Kathy

Hi Everyone, it's Kathy today!  The Doodlebug Design Team was challenged to come up with some fun party themes using Doodlebug products.  This was perfect for me since I offered to help out with my niece's baby shower! The shower was book-themed, everyone brought a favorite baby book in place of a card!   I made a fun banner, the favors and a cute little card, to go along with the theme, take a peek...

I started with the favors, I made little book boxes using my Silhouette and the Pastel Plaid Paper from Kitten Smitten and Gingham Linen Petite Prints.    The favors were a combination of a couple of cut files I edited to fit what I needed.  I then added cute little thank you labels.  The pictures on the labels are Doodlebug Cut files that I made into print and cut files.  They represent some of my daughter's favorite books when she was little. (The books are:  If You Give A Dog a Donut, Make Way for Ducklings, If You Give a Mouse a Cookie, The Very Hungry Caterpillar and If You Give a Cat a Cupcake. )  I filled the favor boxes with bars of custom made cold pressed soaps from a local business.  Here are some close ups of the books...

Once I finished the favors (all 40 of them!)  I couldn't resist making a banner with the characters from the labels.

 The banner base is from a Lori Whitlock file here.  I used the following Doodlebug Cut files for the characters (same as the labels on the boxes)  Orange Dog, Donuts, Duckie, Mice, Chocolate Cookie, Caterpillar, Leaf 1, Green Kitty and Cupcake 2.  Again I used the Pastel Plaid paper and some Gingham Linen Petite prints.  I tied it all together with some Cupcake Chunky Twine.  Here are some close ups of the banner pieces...

Finally I made my niece a coordinating  Pop Up Card.  We already know she's having a girl and they decided to name her Marian.

Here is my adorable niece and her even cuter baby bump!  She loved the favors!

That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!

Partying it Up: Planner Meet Up Gift Idea by Jomelle

Jomelle here today and I would like to invite you to a Planner Meet Up. What's a planner meet up you ask? It's a get together for all planners to meet and greet new planner friends. We also enjoy talking and mingling with others while sharing our planners and showing our planner set up.

Each of  my planner friends will be receiving one.
I used a pocket envelope die to create these for my planner friends. These pocket envelopes can be used as a page marker by adding holes to the side and can be placed inside a ring bound planner. You can also adhere them to a page in your Traveler's Notebook.

 Planner Girls love Washi Tapes. I used my ornaments die to create these and then I laminated them. I added washi samples by wrapping the washi as you can see here. 
I made the tags using the 6x6 paper pad and I just put all the goodies together. I also added Boot Pens as a finishing touch.

So what are you waiting for? Come and join the planner community and attend a planner meet. 
Thank you for stopping by.
