Dragon Tails Collection: Birthday Boy Mini Album by Traci

Hi Doodlebug fans!  It's Traci, from Artsy Albums, back to share a new album that I created with one of my favorite Doodlebug collections EVER ... (although I say that every time a new line is released, LOL) ... Dragon Tails!  Maybe I love this collection so much because it reminds me of when my boys were small.  They loved dragons, knights and castles, so this album was extra fun for me :)
I used a Simple Stories binder album and added Odds & Ends, boutique buttons, enamel dots, chunky twine, and lots of cute pattern paper on the cover.  The 4x4 card was perfect for my title ... that dragon is too cute!
The right side page has a card that opens to tuck photos inside. 
For the page above, I used a sheet from the 6x6 paper pad to add a flip-up element to one of the pages.  You can see what's under the flap in the next photo ... 
Isn't this three-piece guy just adorable?  He was perfect for the front of my pocket.  The shape sprinkles make fun "tabs" when two are placed on a card or tag back to back.  I used the balloon sprinkles for a photo tag above.  Thanks for stopping by today!  I will have a few more photos of this fun album posted over on my blog today.  Stop by and say hello!

Dragon Tails Collection: Birthday Gift Bags and Boxes by Wendy Sue

Hi Doodlebug Friends!  It's Wendy Sue here today, sharing some fun birthday gift bags and boxes I created with the new "Dragon Tails" collection!  I just love the combination of dragons and vikings in this collection, and the colors are perfection for boys of all ages!  Here's a look at the set:

And a closer look at each of the pieces.

I purchased the plain blue gift bags at Target - the color is a perfect match for this collection!

 And the tissue paper is all Hallmark brand - again, perfectly matching colors!  yay!  And the doodle tape - it's SO perfect on these bags!

The little 4x4 cards are perfect to feature on the front of each bag

Adding odds & ends with foam adhesive squares gives each project a bit of extra dimension.

Isn't this two-toned blue doodle twine the cutest?  I just love it for these birthday boy bags!

For the cute little viking pillow boxes, I used a generic cut file and cut them with my Silhouette Cameo.

Then I die-cut a tag and embellished each tag with odds & ends, stickers, and those DARLING sword-shaped doodle clips!

These are the perfect size for a little bag of candy and a gift card!

So the next time you need a cute collection for a Birthday Boy project, be sure to turn to this darling "Dragon Tails" collection!

Dragon Tails Collection: Tri-Fold Card by Caroli

Hello dear Doodlebug friends, how are you today? It's Caroli and I am so glad to be here again sharing a simple idea for creating a fun tri-fold birthday card using gorgeous Dragon Tails collection. 

The procedure for making this car is super simple; first, you'll need a sheet of cardstock (I used Coordinating Cardstock Blue Jean color by DD) and score them every 10 cm, dividing the shee in 3 sections, just like in the pic.

Next, you'll fold the cardstock through the scored lines and form the base for the card. In order to make them more intweresting you will cut the paper in diagonal just like in the pic, leaving 15 cm. in the short part and 25 cm. in the long one.

After that the base will look like this. Now it's ready to be decorated!

For decorating the base you can glue some patterned paper to it, I used these with tiny pattern so it wont look too busy along with the embellishments, in cases like this is very practical to use the 6x6 inches pad.

Finally you can add some diecuts from the Odds & Ends package, some shape or dot sprinkles, anything you want to embellish your card.

This is how my card finally came out. As yopu can see, it was super easy and the result is great. You have plenty of space for writing or even for including some pics! I think this could be a great  option for a group greeting because evryone would have a lot of space for writing a little note...

Dragon Tails Collection: Dragon Party Favor & Card by Brigit

Hello Doodlebug Fans, it's Brigit here today sharing some projects using the Dragon Tails collection.  This is definitely one of my favorites, I love all the adorable dragons and the vikings are so cute!

My first project is a set that includes a boat which is filled with chocolate kisses and a matching birthday card.

I made the base of the boat using the head and tail from one of the Dragon Tails cut files from the silhouette store, you can also purchase these files for your Cricut, ScanNCut or any other machine that accepts svg files from Lori Whitlock's shop here.  The sail and shields are also cut files.  The two vikings are from the odds and ends pack, banner is from the this and that sticker sheet and also the hip hip hooray mini garland.  I used toothpicks and a die to created the little oars.

I used some of the icon stickers and a couple of stars from the balloon sprinkles pack on this birthday card.  I love the cobblestone paper and those clouds, so awesome!

Here's a birthday card and gift card holder set, I really like to make these a lot because I give them out so often.

These matching treat bags make the best gift card pouches.  I dressed it up with some balloon sprinkles, a mini doodle-pop and boy twine.  The happy birthday band is from the dragon dots paper, I added the little dragon clip on the gift card slide out.

I wanted this dragon from the odds and ends pack jumping out of a box so I cutout one of the present cut files.  Also used the mini garland again, I really love this garland!

This dragon's breath paper is totally awesome, I had to make a card with it.  I used this burst die so it would look like the flames from the doodle-pops dragon was filling up the sky, just added a couple of the clouds from the odds and ends pack in the center.  Party time is from the this and that stickers and I used some of the matte birthday boy sprinkles.

I hope you've enjoyed these projects, thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Hi Everyone!  It's Kathy today with a couple of cards I created using the new Dragon Tails Cut Files available in the Silhouette Design Store and the Lori Whitlock SVG Shop!  I love shaped cards, add in some adorable Dragons and Vikings and you get total cuteness!  Take a peek...

I just love the Viking with Horn and Notes. (here in the Lori Whitlock SVG Shop)  He just said "party" to me, so I added the Party Title (here in the Lori Whitlock SVG Shop) to complete the look!

The dragons in this cut file collection are too cute!  I fell in love with this Dragon, (here in the Lori Whitlock SVG Shop)  his teeth are just too funny!  I added in the Birthday Cake, (here in the Lori Whitlock SVG Shop) you could also customize this with some Skinny Alphas and put a number on the cake!

Both cards were made using Doodlebug Textured Cardstock and Gingham Linen Petite Prints.  Be sure to check out all of the new Dragon Tails cut files in the Silhouette Design Store and the Lori Whitlock SVG Shop, they are absolutely adorable and would make great party decorations!  That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!

As the base of my photo layers then I cut 2 more bits of patterned paper 
5648 fort night and 5647 hip hip hooray and added a 4472 lily white polka dot doily in between my photo layers 
Then I added stickers from 5609 dragon tails this and that cardstock stickers and the cut little clothespins

I tucked in a bit of patterned paper dragon dots at the bottom and a little banner from the
