Hats Off Collection: Graduation Planner Love by Jomelle Gomez

Good Morning Doodlebug Fans! It's Jomelle today and I'm excited to share my planner project using the Hats off collection. It's that time of the year to celebrate our 2017 graduates. It just so happen that we will be celebrating my son Joshua's 8th grade promotion next month. This collection is perfect for this celebration.

This is my very first Black and White with a hint of Gold theme layout that I've ever done. I decided to use my Black A5 Kikki K planner to match this collection.

The odds & ends are so fun and so easy to use in decorating and stuffing my planner pockets.

I made this dashboard by using this really pretty "beetle black" velvet cardstock paper. I used more of the odds & ends as embellishments. I added the black and white twine as strings for the balloons. The ribbon award can be removed so that I can add my son's photo as part of the dashboard.

I used the black and white sprinkles to add more textures on one of the balloons and on some part of the white doily.

This vellum paper is so pretty that this picture doesn't even do justice. I cut another carstock with the stars design and I thought it goes so well behind the vellum paper. I will use this page for memory keeping. I will add my son's Promotion picture in the open space.

I made a pocket dashboard using party hearty 12x12 cardstock. It's so easy to make and the pocket is very functional.

I can use the pockets to tuck in some memorabilia from my son's Promotion.

 Here is my weekly layout in the month of June during my son's Promotion week.

I  used this white basket to keep all my Hats Off goodies together.

These are the washi tapes I used. How cute is that graduation cap pin?

Thank you for stopping by. Congrats to all the 2017 Graduates.

Hats Off Collection: Graduation Gift Set by Brigit Mann

Hello Doodlebug Fans, it's Brigit here today to share a graduation gift set using the Hats Off Collection.  I absolutely love all the silver foil pieces in this collection.  The papers are adorable and very classy, can be used for so many other occasions besides graduation.

It was hard to get a good photo on just how awesome these papers really look, but you can see some of the silver foil showing up in the stars, stripes and some of the pieces.

For the take-out box I used a cut file from SVGCuts, I kept it simple because the Starstruck paper is gorgeous by itself, just added this congrats sticker from the This and That sheet, Beetle Black Chunky Twine and a wire handle.  I made a bunch of these fortune cookies with some of the sentiments from the Hats Off paper tucked inside each cookie, perfect inspirational messages for the grad!  I used the Sterling and Party Hardy papers for these cookies.  You can faintly see on top I added one of the stickers from the Mini Icons and Foil Accents, perfect to keep the box close.

I used one of the 4 x 4 cards from the Hats Off paper, these are awesome to create cards with! The little owl is from the Odds and Ends pack, you will love the foil accents in this pack.  The black strip is some beautiful Beetle Black Crushed Velvet cardstock and stars are from the Icons and Foil Accents sheet.  For the fortune cookie in this photo I used the Shutterbug paper.

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

Hats Off Collection: MHS Layout with Kathy

Hi Everyone!  It's Kathy today with a fun layout featuring the new Hats Off Collection!  I love that this collection is neutral in color, it allows you to customize your projects using the colors of your particular school!  I finally got to scrap my girly's graduation from last year, take a peek...

I fell in love with the Odds & Ends in this collection!  There's a great mix, some silver metallic, and some clear acetate!  They are so fun to scatter around a layout!  My favorite was the sweet Girl Owl!

I added in some Blue Jean colored elements from a few different collections including the Gingham Linen Petite Prints, Dragon Tails, Teensy Type Alphas and some Glitter Sprinkles!  They coordinated perfectly with my daughter's high school colors!

The Cute Clips are such fun!  I added a few of the stars to the layout and the graduation cap clip to one of my balloons!

I also love the speech bubble Odds & Ends and stickers, they're perfect to accent all the staged photos we made the kids suffer through, lol!  Now if I can only find the time to scrap the other thousand pictures I took of the graduation, I'd be in great shape!  That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!

Hats Off! Collection: Gift Card Album by Wendy Sue

Hello Doodlebug friends!  It's Wendy Sue here today, and I'm excited to share a little project I made for my favorite 2017 graduate with the amazing "Hats Off!" collection!  (The little album I used is a cut file in the silhouette store.) Here's a look:

I doesn't look like much - but just wait until you see the inside! I needed to keep the outside kind of flat so the entire piece could be thrown in a purse or backpack.  Because, truly, they are going to want to keep this gift close after they head off to college!  (Oh, and don't miss that fun velcro closure!)

Drum roll please...

Ta-daaaaa!  Can you tell what it is?  It's a mini accordion album...with pockets!  Here's a closer look at the inside of the front cover - then we'll get to the meat of it! ;)

I really really wish I could take better photos of these odds & ends pieces - they are gorgeous metallic silver - SO pretty!

And here's a look at the first pocket page - first empty...then sporting gift #1!  I embellished the top of the pocket page with the cutest graduation shape sprinkles!

Each little pocket is the perfect size for holding a giftcard!  Of course, every grad needs to head to Target to buy supplies for college! 

Oh, and food.  Every college freshman needs to be spoiled every once in a while - when they are tired of ramen or mac & cheese, they can pull out their handy-dandy gift and treat themselves to a delicious meal out! The gorgeous metallic odds & ends have been added to both of these pages.  And don't miss that awesome graduation cap paper clip on the right page - it's the cutest!

Maybe a few more meals out. ;)  I added some fun stickers (tip: use baby powder to remove the stickiness on any portion of the sticker that hangs off of a page - or in this case, a pocket) to both pages.  And that doodle pop grad cap is so perfect over there on the right page.  Can you see the sweet little acetate cloud behind it?

And the perfect gift for any grad - especially your FAVORITE grad? 

Cold. Hard. Cash.  It fits perfectly in the pocket as well. ;)

The last page is perfect for this little grad owl and his special message for your graduate:

Don't forget to embellish the back of the closed album:

It's the perfect sticker (with awesome metallic silver) for the back - the perfect message for a new graduate!

And, if you want to gift a little something extra, pick up one of these awesome collector pins to add to your already amazing gift - because they are just the cutest things ever:

"Hats Off!" to all of this years grads - now go make them something fun to celebrate!!

Hats Off Collection: Congrats Grad Layout by Anita Bownds

Hi there Doodlebug peeps,
Anita here with you today sharing a layout created with the fabulous hats off collection 
I have to say that the silver foil in this collection is wonderful so sparkly.

I started off with a design in mind using strips of patterned paper going on a angle across the layout 
And in the centre at the bottom having my journaling typed with my typewriter 

After lining up the paper strips I add a some washi tape just under the edge
adding the strips of patterned paper I machine stitched on the edges of the starstruck 
Next I added a few papers behind my photo and one of those diploma bits of paper in my photo layers 
I also added a little cute star clip and that cute doodlepop hat

I used a die cut from the odds and ends pack
And decided on using the shape sprinkles around my journaling 

On the right hand side of my photo I added another die cut with silver foil 
on it from the odds and ends 

Supply list
5571 hats doodlepop
4795 official stripe washi tape
5591 cute clips graduation 
5547 graduation shape sprinkles

Hats Off Collection: Birthday Girl Layout by Mendi

Hello Doodlebugs!  It's Mendi here today with a playful twist on Doodlebug's cool new Hats Off collection for Graduations and so much more.  For my project I thought it would be fun to show just how versatile these products really are by using it to create a birthday layout.

With this collection comes a brand new "color" of my favorite Skinny Alphabet stickers... Metallic Silver!  I paired them here with a word bubble die cut from the odds and ends collection and a couple of star stickers from the icon sticker sheet.

The odds and ends pack for this collection is AMAZING!  It comes with such a great variety of shapes in clear acetate as well as cardstock and foil.  I immediately fell in love with these fun balloons!  Aren't they cool?   To hide my adhesive for the two white balloons, I added my liquid adhesive behind the stripes and polka-dots which worked beautifully.

I finished off my page with a simple decorative banner and a camera from the same odds and ends die-cut pack.  A simple blue button to the lens adds a splash off color.

I love that with this collection's monochromatic color scheme, you can pair it with any color under the rainbow to match your occasion.  I hope I've inspired you to take a second look at this fabulous collection.  :)

Hats Off Collection: Congrats Grad Layout by Virginia Nebel

Hello, it's Virginia here on the blog today to share with you a few projects using the gorgeous Hat's Off collection!   The silver foil papers, ephemera and transparencies are simply stunning!  You can definitely use this collection for more than just graduations, I'm thinking anniversaries, parties and other special memories.

Here on my page, I love anything with stripes so I couldn't resist using the silver foiled striped paper as the backdrop to my photos.  Have you noticed the cute shaped clips that come with every collection?  So easy to just clip them to the edges of your paper and you add instant pizzaz on your project!

For my second page, the base paper is an embossed velvet paper and the texture is so rich (I hope you can see it in the photo)!  The delicate vellum dot paper is perfect to run through die-cuts and punches, here I made some pretty vellum butterflies with silver sprinkles.
