Mix it Up Challenge: Date Night Planner by Jomelle Gomez

Good Morning Doodlebug Fans! Jomelle here today and this is my last blog for the year 2017. This year has been wonderful. I cannot wait for new adventures in 2018. I want to share with you my "Mix-it-Up" Project. 
I wanted to create a TN set up for my Date Nights with my husband. I made covers for my inserts and I decorated them. I decided to use my Favorite Collection Cream and Sugar and I mixed it up with the Fairy Tales Collection.

 I'm really excited to fill the pages with all our dates and make my TN super chunky.
 As you may already know, I love decorating my pockets with all kinds of odds & ends and other cute things.
 Since we have a 2 year old daughter who is very attached and very clingy to both of us, we rarely have alone time. My 14 year old son was able to watch her while hubby and I attended a wedding for one of his close friends. We had such a fun night.
Even though we don't get to go out for Date Night, I really do enjoy our Day Date with my hubby and our baby girl Juliet.

 Insert cover I decorated.

 I used the 12x12 cardstock to create an insert by cutting it to the standard TN size but I added an extra 2 inches so that I can fold it to make a pocket on the bottom. 

Hope you all have a Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year! Thank you for stopping by. For more inspirations follow me on Instagram @J4Fashion

Mix it Up Challenge: File Folder Organization with Virginia Nebel

Hello everyone it's Virginia here to share with you my 'Mix-it-Up' project.  Even though our lives are becoming more and more paperless I still do find papers in my junk drawer piling up.  To tackle this mess, I created a fun file folder binder which I will use to keep loose papers better organized.  The foundation of my binder are pocket file folders available at an office supply store.

I used 3 pocket file folders (you can use as many as you wish as long as they fit your binder rings). and there are lots of decorating opportunites (front cover, back cover, inside cover etc.). Woot! I get to raid all my Doodlebug stash, that just makes my heart smile!

Here I used an 8.5x11 page I previously created, this way I can enjoy the layout everytime I open up my file folder! 

You can embellish the insides pockets too, you know all those cute Doodlebug clips, I clipped them to the inside and they are ready when I need some papers clipped together- so much fun!

Love this Doodlebug typewriter cutting file, so many ways to customize your message!

I have filed away a yummy recipe, now I have no excuse that I can't find it- LOL,  I guess I better go now to start some holiday baking!

Wishing you and yours the warmest and merriest Holiday Season!

Mix It Up Challenge: Santa Airplane Wall Decor by Jennifer Beason

Looks like Santa has ditched his sleigh and is taking to the skies in his new airplane. Guess he doesn't mind all those cookie crumbs in the cockpit! :)
Hello everyone. Jennifer here and today I'm kicking off the Doodlebug "Mix It Up" Challenge. The team and I were tasked with creating a project mixing two or more collections. Since Christmas is almost here I thought I'd get another festive project done for my shop and complete my assignment at the same time.
For this project I mixed 4 of my favorite Doodlebug Christmas collections, Milk & Cookies, Here Comes Santa Claus, Polar Pals, and Sugarplums.
The Santa in plane and cloud are DB cutting files. Both pieces were cut out of wood then chipboard and foam were used to add layers. Don't you just love those half-eaten cookie stickers... too cute!!!
Because Doodlebug uses their signature colors in all their collections, mixing the old and the new Christmas lines together was easy.
I added some chunky and regular twine to Santa's hat and some fun twine pom-poms.  I also used a little white twine detail on the plane as well. Die-cuts, stickers, and candy shaped sprinkles were added to the cockpit for Santa to snack on.
Wooden snowflakes were painted and glittered then attached to the back of the cloud with some strong twine.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Don't forget to come back tomorrow for more "Mix it Up" ideas. Happy Holidays, everyone! Jennifer
