Take Note Birthday Cards

We loved how easy it was to change up the Take Note Collection from a typical school themed collection to anything full of color! Birthday cards seemed to be one of the first ideas the design team though of when challenged to see beyond the theme.

Take Note Altered Inspiration

Homework Binder
by Tiffany Hood

The Take Note collection has so many images that are perfect for school. I love the ruler patterned paper, and all the cute clipboards.  The colors in this collection are so vibrant and fun!  I used the new Doodle Pops stickers as my inspiration, and adhered them to my project exactly the way they looked in the packaging.  Who wouldn't want a cute bright binder like this to carry to school?

Take Note Clipboard

I absolutely LOVE the Take Note collection! As soon as I saw it I started dreaming up all the adorable projects I could make. So, to start it off I have a fun altered clipboard! I REALLY enjoyed making this. The colors and overall design are just so fun!

Frosting Container Pencil Jar

Here's another easy storage solution. I made a cake a while back and thought the frosting container would make a perfect pencil cup. I wrapped the frosting container with a variety of patterned papers and border stickers. Wouldn't this make a delightful teacher gift?

I love the school supply theme of the Take Note collection.  I pulled all sorts of bright school supply elements to embellish the front of the pencil cup. 

I love me some dimensional Doodle-Pops stickers!  Aren't those little scissors the cutest?  Now you have the perfect excuse to go make a cake!

I'm totally loving the new Mini Pinwheels kit in the Stars and Stripes collection. I knew I had to use one on a card. They're so fun to make, and so cute on cards and layouts.

Happy Birthday Airplane
by Tiffany Hood
I love the colors in the new Stars and Stripes collection, and the little plane reminded me of my boys. The adorable Doodle Pop is perfect for boy cards, and the airplane theme works perfectly alongside the stars and stripes.

Let Your Colors Burst
by Amanda Coleman

I {heart} Doodlebug's new Stars & Stripes collection!  At first glance it appears to be solely a Fourth of July collection, but upon further looking, this collection is extremely versatile.  I designed a few cards that are appropriate for events other than the Fourth of July.  Check it: 

The Stars & Stripes collection has the BEST airmail stripe print ever!   The colors are so vibrant and they really pop against the white.  I tied this card with some ladybug Doodletwine to resemble a package tied with string.  

I am just loving the tiny post mark and bar code on the tiny special delivery envelope sticker.  And how 'bout that bandana washi tape?  To die for! 

I made a coordinating envelope by adhering strips of airmail striped washi tape around the border of an envelope.  While that bicycle stamp won't get this card anywhere in the mail, it sure does add some flair to an otherwise plain envelope.  

Red, white, and blue quilts are a classic American tradition, so I broke out my 3/4" square punch and created a miniature version for this card.  I adhered the squares to a scrap piece of cardstock and added some diagonal stitching. 

The blue Boy Doodletwine coordinates perfectly with the Stars & Stripes collection.

While this card has a more traditional Fourth of July theme, it would be suitable for any occasion where one needed encouragement. 

What non-holiday projects would you create with Stars & Stripes?
