I keep most of my product on this pegboard so I can see what I want to use
And right beside that I have a cubed shelf that I keep a few things on to make it pretty..

Beside that on the wall is a big chicken wire heart made of chipboard 
that I keep cards I've made 

On the top 2 shelves I have washi tape in little boxes 
I made and covered in gift paper 

Here I keep my Jewels ,twine and sprinkles 
In these cute tin baskets 

I also have a little space on my desk on one side of the room 
Just playing with doodlebug product .. my desk goes around 3 walls of my studio 

And on the other side of my room on my desk is where I film 
My creative process videos .. you may notice I like plants the humidity in my studio seems to help strike cuttings.. 

I have a shelf above my desk for filming where I keep all my 
Cardstock , albums and stencils ..

Creative Cut Files: Heat Set Vinyl to Customized Your Shoes by Karen

Hi everyone! It's Karen from ScrappyCanuck Studios and today and I am sharing what I call a project experiment - you know, one of those techniques or products you have never worked with before. Now, while it is true that some (aka - most) of my project experiments don't go as planned, this one had me giggling all the way to the zoo!
I still remember the day that Doodlebug announced that they were releasing cut files - it was my incentive to finally upgrade a rather aging cutting machine. Why? Because I knew the possibilities for new projects were just too good to pass up. But little did I know that I would be customizing shoes - seriously...does it get better than Doodlebug shoes??!!! At the Zoo is one of the darling new releases from Doodlebug, and along with it came an amazing set of Doodlebug cut files (available at Lori Whitlock's SVG store and Silhouette Design Store). I decided to let my two little gals choose the characters they wanted on their shoes and even the colours we would use to create them.
My youngest thought the idea of Panda Bear was unbearably cute! I wasn't quite sure how to create the contrast on the black shoes she chose, but a little bit of glitter vinyl saved the day! I played around with the bamboo stalk that comes with the Panda Bear cut file,changing the size, mirroring the image and then isolating the leaves to tie the designs on each shoe together. it was incredibly easy to create a fun design with this file (okay, I need to make a pair of these in my size)!
And my older daughter decided to monkey around a bit more with the colours for the Monkey file, experimenting with different combinations in the software before she made a decision! She also decided to just isolate the head shape from the cut file, which we were able to trim after cutting it in my Cricut. Leaf 3 from the collection became our little embellishment together with some hearts to tie the colours together. These files made for a playful pair!
So, given that this was the first time I had ever worked with vinyl of any kind, I have to say that I am pretty excited about the results of this experiment! Think of all the things I can "Doodlebug" now (this is going to be a new verb in my house)!!!! How about you? What will you Doodlebug next?
Thanks for stopping by! Hugs, Karen

Creative Cut Files: Unicorn Layout by Caroli

Hello there Doodlebug peeps! How are you? This is Caroli and today I want to share with you two projects I made using the most fabulous collection Doodlebug has made so far: FAIRY TALES!

As a lifetime unicorn lover, I've always wanted to scrap about this but never had a proper collection for it... until now. So of course I had to make a layout featuring my awesome Unicorn and rainbow pins by Doodlebug as well.

I absolutely adore the hearts and cloud shaped sprinkles, they are oh so cute ❤ and great for adding an extra touch to any embellishment cluster.

I used some dots to  create a 3D effect along with the rainbow dots patterned paper, I think it looks pretty cool :)

I loved working on this project and have a lot of more layouts in process to document my unicorn love

The second project is this layout I made using pics fro the first birthday of my little girl, 8 years ago. 

I used a lot of diecuts and some twine to create a cluster of embellishments, love how this one came out.

I hope you liked my projects and get some inspiration to work with this pretty collection. Sparkly unicorn hugs to you all

Doodlebug Design Cut Files: Baby Name Frames with Kathy

0Hi Everyone!  It's Kathy Today with a fun project I made using Doodlebug Design Cut files!  We've had a bit of a baby boom in our family recently... 3 new babies since May!  I wanted to send something special along to my new little cousins, and I put together a name frame for each of them.

For the girls frames, I used papers from the Sugar and Spice Collection and some Gingham Linen Petite Prints.  The cut files are from the Spring Things Cut file collection.  The files I used are the Ladybug SVG (here in the Silhouette Store), the Flower Cluster SVG (here in the Silhouette Store) and the Butterfly SVG (here in the Silhouette Store).  The font I used for all of the names is Lori Whitlock's Bubble Letter Font.

Here are some close-ups of the Spring Things Cut files.

For the little boy's frame, I used papers from the At the Zoo Collection and some Gingham Linen Petite Prints.  The cut files are also from the At the Zoo Collection.  I used the Koala Bear SVG (here in the Silhouette Store), the Penguin SVG (here in the Silhouette Store and the Lion SVG (here in the Silhouette Store.   

Here are some close-ups of these cut files...

I'm excited to send these along to my new little cousins!!  That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!

Off The Page Challenge: Fairy Tales Gift Bags by Wendy Sue

Happy Saturday Doodlebug friends! It's Wendy Sue here with you today, sharing the project I created for our team-wide "Off the Page" Challenge!  I love having cards, gift bags, and tags on hand so I can wrap a gift in a fun, unique way at a moment's notice.  I recently took note that my stash of gift bags for girls was getting really low - so I took this opportunity to stock up my stash!  Here's what I created using the darling "Fairy Tales" collection:

Let me show you some of the details!  I used patterned papers, including the 4x4 cards on each bag.  On this one, I really wanted to use those sparkly rainbow sprinkles, they are just too cute!

Don't you agree?

Here's the next bag - I used some cute heart sprinkles in place of the raindrops below the clouds. 

Speaking of clouds, I layered several different types and I love how they just pop right off the bag:

And finally, the cutest dang cupcake doodle-pop ever is the star of this bag:

I hope you've been inspired by our team over the last few weeks to take these adorable Doodlebug products to a new level, off the page, and create some fun projects for yourself!  Thanks for popping in - have a great weekend!
