So Punny | Card Trio with Kathy

It's no secret, I love a good pun and this collection does not disappoint!  The Chit Chat Pieces and Odds & Ends make putting together cards so quick and easy!  Take a peek...

I made a shadow box type card by layering different sized frames, with pop dots between the layers for dimensions.  I added the little tomatoes from the Odds & Ends and the speech bubble from the Chit Chat Pieces.  To finish, I added one of the Tiny Heart Sprinkles and done!

For my next card, I started with this card base cut with my Silhouette.  For the center I attached 2 of the soda can Odds & Ends back to back over a piece of Doodle Twine so that they floated in the middle.  Then I just added the "soda-lightful" saying from the Chit Chat pieces and done!  

Finally for my last card, I used a center box card base to showcase the adorable sewing machine and thread Odds & Ends Pieces.  The speech bubble and the Just Because Banner are from the Chit Chat Pieces. 

I really love how this collection is great for both everyday and Valentine's themed projects!  I've listed the products used for each card below.  That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!

So Punny | Planner Video Step by Step with Jennie

Oh how I love cute! Creating cute planner pages is one of my favorite, for sure!  What helps make a cute planner page?  Doodlebug's So Punny collection can certainly do that!

I wanted to decorate the monthly view in my Happy Planner® since I don't use it for anything.  I decided it would be so fun to have a cheerful scrapbook page right in my planner.  I can flip to it and enjoy the memories + cute supplies any time I want!

I created three separate clusters, each with photos.  I kept one cluster very simple so that it wouldn't overwhelm the page.

I kept the second cluster somewhere between very interesting with lots going on and simple -- but I love it nonetheless.

Lastly, I've got two photos and layering - there are so many fun things to look at in just one small area of the page.  I mixed together die cuts + stickers with patterned paper. All three together create a good balance of photos and fun stuff to look at on a planner page.

Would you like to see how this all came together?

So Punny | Take-Out Treat Boxes with Karen

I love this time in the crafting industry because new collections and product are popping up like amazing flowers in the middle of the winter doldrums, and it is so fun to see what is new and exciting! I am sure it comes as no surprise that Doodlebug's new So Punny collection is at the top of my list. I squealed...yes, squealed...the first time I saw it! I mean come on! It doesn't get cuter or more versatile than this fun collection! From bacon to gnomes to sewing machines to sushi, this collection has it all! And I couldn't help but start my crafty fun with a sushi-themed project!  
Right? How cute is this paper and these die cuts from the Odds and Ends pack?! I had some small take-out containers kicking around (these were leftovers from a Christmas project but there are templates galore online so you can create your own). I thought they would make a great little hostess gift or even a place cards for a little dinner party you might be hosting! Fill them with a little bit of candy sushi or any other little treat, and you'll be the "ricest" gift giver ever!
In my family, I am going to use these as a gifts for my cuties. My oldest daughter is obsessed with sushi and rice...she would eat it everyday if she I thought it would be fun to actually serve some sushi in it. And given that the youngest won't touch either (because life would be too easy if they wold like the same things, right?!), I think her's will include some fruit roll up sushi for dessert!
Oh, and just as an embellishment for these cute die cuts, I added some chopsticks simply cut from Doodlebug's textured cardstock in cream...
 ...and included the cutest washi tape ever! As a final touch, my new favourite Sprinkles sealed the hearts! What???!!! I know - I heard you squeal! So there you have it. One of what will be at least 20 projects I have planned with this collection! Seriously - I'm not sure I will be able to stop. In the meantime, I hope you are enjoying this bright pop of colour in the winter. Thanks for stopping by!
Hugs, Karen
