DIY 3D Embellishments You'll Love

Although Doodlebug creates wonderful embellishments for your projects, we thought it woudld be fun to show ways to step them up to a new level. Check out the two layouts below to see what Stephanie and Tya did to make their own 3D Embellishments that we hope you'll love.

Baby Love

3D Embellishment Idea: Consider wrapping a chipboard alphabet letter with Doodlebug Twine to create a softer letter that really pops on your layout.

Date Night Layout
by Tya Smith

3D Embellishment Idea: Create a fun paper lolly to pop-up your cardstock stickers and add that extra pop like Tya's fun "You & Me" heart embellishment.

3D Embellishment Idea: We loved the fun Floral Doodle-pops on this fun sticker. Even though these are created for you, considering layer more then one type of sticker together to create this fun look.

Stitched Together in Love

What caught my eye about both Jodi and Monique's layout were the little (or big) detail created with stitching on their layouts. Jodi knocked my socks off with her twine stitched hearts (and I don't dare ask how long it too either)...and I cannot overlook her adorable subject matter! Then a huge shout out to Monique. I loved how she used stitching with her sewing machine to hold her title in place and add that extra final touch to both her layouts.Try stitching on your projects!

"Love" Icon Sticker to Lovely Cards

We were so excited to see what our design team would create with the new Lovebirds Collection. The "LOVE" sticker at the bottom seems to have caught a few of our team members eye and you will LOVE what they created with it.

Sweet Love Card
by Wendy Sue Anderson

I am such a huge fan of doodlebug's create-a-card system!  The premade cards come in fun shapes and sizes, and because of doodlebug's color consistency across all of their lines, there's always a card that is the perfect match to any collection!  I loved using the swimming pool card base with bits and pieces of the lovebird collection - not too feminine in spite of all the pink!

Be My Valentine Love Card
by Tiffany Hood

I loved the soft tones in this collection and I thought I'd combine them into one card.  The delicate doilies on the patterned paper inspired me to cut larger doilies from the cardstock, and then I added some Lily White Chenille Crushed Velvet cardstock for some additional softness and dimension.

Love Notes and Cards You'll LOVE

Love Notes Layout
by Tiffany Hood

My son recently brought home several love notes from school.  I thought it was the cutest funniest thing considering he's only 8.  The little Mini Love Notes in the new Love Birds collection inspired me to do a layout about it, and who says you have to have a photo on a layout?  The "love notes" are the stars.

Valentine Treat Boxes

I'm always looking for simple treat box ideas and was thrilled when Wendy and Tya sent me these quick and easy paper crafty treat boxes. But then again, Amanda's chocolate box is yummy enough to eat, I may try creating that one too.

Pillow Treat Box
by Wendy Sue Anderson

I find myself giving more and more gift cards, cash, and little treats as gifts.  These little pillow boxes make the perfect package for all of these little gifts!  Making them with a digital die-cut machine is super easy and embellishing them with doodlebug goodness is perfection!
