Guest Designer: Stephanie Buice Returns

Hi Everyone! Stephanie Buice here today and it is such a pleasure to be back here at Doodlebug as a guest designer. Doodlebug is where I first fell in love with designing for a company and color, lots and lots of color. I was blessed to be on the DT for two years in a row so I'm pretty sure it will always feel like home here to me.

For this guest post I was sent the Kraft in Color Collection and the rainbow of colors pretty much jumped out of the box onto my table. Here is the first layout I made for you today:

Cutest Piggies In All The World:

When I saw all the different colors and patterns in this collection my heart skipped a beat!
I knew I wanted to make my pages bright and cheery.

I cut strips of the papers, and placed them in a horizontal line down my page with my picture near the bottom. I added some Sprinkles and Sequins here and there to add some interest and keep your eye moving through the layout.

The title I wanted to use what way too long for me to place it along the bottom of my picture so I decided to put it to the right. and finished it off with the camera Doodad from the Day to Day collection.

Here is my second layout:
Hello Lovely Girl:
This is one of my favorite pictures of my niece Kimberly and it was calling to be on a page using the Sprinkles Vellum. The colors in the picture really compliment the vellum colors, so bright and cheery.

I cut out different sizes of circles from the vellum and 6x6 paper pad and sewed them together making mini banners.
I lined them up on the top and bottom of the layout using them to frame my picture in the center.

I cut the "hello" from my silhouette and used some watercolor to make it match the colors of my layout.

Here is a final close up of the mini circle banners, I love how it let me fit more bits and pieces on to my page, without taking away from my picture.
Thanks for having me and I hope you liked what I made for  you:)
