Hi Doodlebug Buddies! It's Wendy Sue here today, and I'm sharing one of my latest layouts, featuring "The Graduates" collection.
I love the neutral colors of this collection - just perfect for adding a pop of color...like school colors! My son's preschool didn't have official colors, but since he was wearing a cute orange shirt, that's what I was inspired by.
I pulled out a bunch of orange papers and elements from various Doodlebug collections and went to town (the Halloween themed sets were perfect...orange AND stars)!
My favorite thing about ALL Doodlebug collections is how easy they are to mix & match. The awesome circle button with the star inlay I used was from an older collection, Boys Only.
Doodle-pops are a great way to add a bit of dimension to any page...but don't feel limited to the doodle-pops - simply add foam adhesive behind any of the awesome stickers and you have a faux doodle-pop ready to add anywhere!
This collection is perfect for ANY type of graduation - but don't forget that it would work great for lots of different types of celebrations...birthdays, retirement, and so much more!
Little Miss Smarty Pants Layout

Hi everyone! Jodi here today to share with you a layout I made with the new collection: The Graduates! My first thought on this collection is, its versatility! I do not have any graduating photos (At least none that I could find), so I thought it would be cute to play up the cute owls in this collection! My oldest daughter is a super smarty, and for the last three years, has had the highest academic achievement in each of the three years (I know, super proud mommy!). So why not document this amazing achievement by using this cute collection! Here is the layout I created:
Stars Sprinkles! Yes these little stars even have a hint of glitter in them and they are adorable! I decided to use most of these as well as some punched out stars from the Gold Sugar Coated Cardstock. I added some of the new washi tape around the border too for extra interest!
I then started to layer my layout by starting with some patterned paper and then used a Simply Put card layered with some Icon Stickers.
Cap & Gown Stickers. For my title, I decided to stick with the star theme, add more of the Star Sprinkles!
Kindergarten Graduate Layout
by Aimee Kidd
It's that time of year my crafty friends....Graduation time! I know you all are just LOVING the new "The Graduates" collection! Aimee here to day to share my Kindergarten Graduate layout with you.
My sweet baby girl graduated from Kindergarten last year and I have held on to this picture just waiting for the perfect line to scrap it. And guess what......Doodlebug came out with this wonderful black, white, and gold graduate line that was perfect and now it is scrapped! I wanted to keep my design fairly simple so the picture and the embellishments were the highlight of the layout.
Here are some close ups for you.....
Here you can see how I scattered different embellishments around such as the sequins, star sprinkles, cardstock stickers, and the round sprinkles.
I added a piece of the star banner to the tops of the pixie toppers and used some of the new chevron sprinkles to draw the attention to the picture of my sweet little graduate.
For the top of the layout, I added this banner with an owl that I popped up using pop dots. Then to finish it off I added more sequins and sprinkles.
Thanks for visiting! Be sure to stop back by tomorrow for some more wonderful inspiration using the fabulous "The Graduates" collection!!
