Chevron Layout Inspiration by Shellye & Candace

What is better then chevron paper designs? Chevron paper designs with GLITTER on them!! We hope you find inspiration to create with Doodlebug's Sugar Coated Chevron Cardstock.

Swims Like a Fish Layout
by Shellye McDaniel
Hello there!  Shellye here to share a layout created with the amazing Chevron Sugar Coated Cardstock.

As you can see, I started out with the Swimming Pool and Bubblegum shades.  I cut the Bubblegum sheet into triangled pieces (there will be a total of four) and then layered two of the pieces on top of the Swimming Pool paper and machine stitched in place.

 Next, I cut a mat to measure 7.75" X 7.75" from Lily White cardstock and then topped it with a 7.5" X 7.5" square of diagonal striped paper from the Sugar Shoppe Collection.  I wanted to highlight the darker pink stripes found in the paper, so I cut strips from the leftover Bubblegum Chevron and glued them in place.  Before adding to the layout, I machine stitched the two pieces of paper together around the edge.

For the title I took to my electronic die-cutting machine.  I used Halo Handletter font and cut from Lily White Cardstock with a shadow of Pistachio Cardstock.

I embellished with piece of a doily and various cardstock stickers and Doodle Pop.

I love the illusion made by adding the square mat to the center of the triangular design; it's made even more eye-catching with the use of the Sugar Coated Chevron!

Thank you for joining us today at Doodlebug Design!

Birthday Girl Layout
by Candace Zentner

Hey crafty friends!! Candace from Scrappin' 2 Little Princesses here today sharing a layout using Doodlebug's awesome chevron sugared cardstock. This cardstock is AMAZING!! Since it comes in all the great Doodlebug colors you can find a chevron to match any project you are working on! I am so in love with the Sugar Shoppe collection that I just had to use it along with matching chevron cardstock. 

I am so in love with the pattern, texture and sparkle of this paper! I wanted to keep my layout very simple since the chevron is so great on its own. 

So YUMMY, right?! It is the most beautiful, glittery paper I have ever seen (told you I was in love!). 

I used some foam stickers on the back of my 'Birthday' stickers to make them stand out. I love how the grey title looked over the aqua chevron. 

I made a fun cluster of elements in the corner in my layout using foam stickers of various thicknesses to create a lot of dimension and interest. Here is a side view, making the dimension easier to see:

I love that this cardstock can be incorporated into every single project! Make sure you take a peek at all the great colors it comes in. 
Enjoy all the inspiration and great ideas the Doodlebug ladies have for you using this yummy cardstock!
