Chit Chat Focus | Waterfall Folio Album by Traci

I'm excited to share a fun new style of mini album for this post.  I'm calling this a Waterfall Folio album, and I loaded it up with the new Chit Chat pieces, bright pattern papers from So Punny, and a few Odds and Ends.
When folded, the album looks like this (and yes, I love the Chit Chat pieces so much that I bought several packages so that I could have 5 XOXO's on the cover, LOL).
Here are a few of the waterfall flip pages ... 
I love those little sprinkles "BEARY" much!
If you would like to make an album like this for yourself, visit my blog, for a tutorial on making this project.

Chit Chat Focus | Love of My Life Layout with Caroli

Today I want to share one more layout I made using fabulous So Punny collection. In this layout I documented few ramblings about current stage of my little mister. He's growing so fast and sometimes I wish I coud freeze time when he's sleeping over my chest ❤ This is what this layout is about.

I went for an "all over the page" design here, and basically placed a lot of stuff on my layout, LOL! I used a bunch of Chit Chat diecuts. I LVE this new product by Doodlebug, it's a great way to add some text to a layout or minialbum. 

In general, something I love about Doodlebug Design is the bright colors and cute little faces on everything, and this collection is no exception! I love all those tiny cute faces, they're adorable.

White background is one of my staples when it comes to scrapbooking and it's perfect to make all the bright colors pop, so I used it on this layout as well.

With the help of some foam dots I added different layers of volume, thus the design looks more interesting and funier. 

I cut the word "love" for my title using my Silhouette Cameo machine, and completed it with some Teensy Type alpha in swimming pool color.

Just some sewing machine details, the journaling and my layout is all done! I love how this one came out.

I hope you like this idea and get inspired to work with So Punny collection, have a lovely day!

Chit Chat Focus | Planner Pages + Process Video with Jennie

IMG_8673I don't know about you, but I always have about a million ideas swirling in my head of projects I want to work on or ideas I have for in process projects.  I knew I wanted to create something to keep track of all the things but it took a bit to come up with the perfect plan.  Enter my personal Color Crush binder, the Doodlebug So Punny collection and a great idea!

That's cute so far, right?  Each tab will house a different project I'm working on, or planning to start.  I had to decorate each divider with the super cute So Punny Collection - and all of the adorable Chit Chat! Adding these to each divider made the perfect accent and really made the whole thing POP!

Talk about perfect! An adorable pun to match the tea set - but with that black and white edge it really pops!
Talk about stealing the show!  I mean, the pizza with a face is downright cute but the text and speech bubbles really draw me in!
Now, to balance out all of the really embellished pages, I wanted to keep one super simple.  One where you focused solely on one bit and weren't deciding where to look first.

It's impossible to pick a favorite page - I mean, look all the cute bits and bobs throughout.  However, the black paper and the cute elements on this page definitely make this one a contender.
Thanks for stopping by and hopefully you enjoyed this idea!

Would you like to see how this whole thing came together?  Come check out my process video for this planner right here!

So Punny | Remote Hog layout with Melinda

We'd like to wish everyone a Happy Valentine's Day!!!

Historically February 14 is the most romantic day of the year so I thought it was fitting to scrap about my husband who very rarely allows his face to be in front of a camera. However, because I was using the 'So Punny' collection I thought it would be more fun to do a lighthearted page with the same sentiment behind it.

The entire layout design was based directly from the little television icon which I loved from the moment I found it inside the Odds & Ends packet. I really wanted to replicate the test pattern stripes but I also couldn't shake the idea of having a heart background. So after a few sketches I settled on a striped heart that I could stitch with matching color thread to the test pattern.

And how fun to find a matching remote... which gave me the idea to have 'Remote Hog' as the title to my layout. Although I seriously think my husband would disagree! I also used the little pink 'love' arrow sentiment from the brand new 'Chit Chat' pack.

Speaking of new products, the teenie tiny hearts are the latest Sprinkles and I have used almost two packets already. I cannot get enough of these little pieces because they make the perfect embellishment without being too heavy on the overall design.

I hope everyone has a wonderful day whether they celebrate Valentine's Day or not. It's nice to simply do something for someone you love regardless of the date.

SO PUNNY | Gift Set with Brigit

Matching gift sets are one of my favorite things to create. I think adding a bag or box of sweets that match the card you are giving just makes it a little more special.

To create this gift set I used some of the cut files from the so punny svg collection, you can get these all together in one set or individually from Lori Whitlock's shop. Doodlebug cut files are also available at the Silhouette Design Store.

I used the love title cut file, mirrored the base piece and welded them together to form my card. I cut out each gummi bear and matching letter with paper from the 12 x 12 so punny collection and one sheet from the 6 x 6 pad. The background is lily white gingham-linen petite print. I added some tiny hearts, bubblegum twine and a banner from the chit chat pack.

When I saw the gummi bears in the so punny set I knew I wanted to make a bag using the cut files. I used the I'm daisy for you from the 12 x 12 paper pack to match the card and some pistachio gingham-linen petite print. The bag itself is a freebie from svgcuts called bunny gift bag. The top of the darling little envelope cut file keeps the bag closed perfectly. I finished up with some bubblegum twine. a glitter sprinkle for the nose and a heart from the sweet heart sprinkles assortment pack.

I hope you've enjoyed this gummi bear gift set, thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

So Punny | Valentine's Day Cards by Karen

Valentine's Day is coming up quickly, and while not everyone is a fan, Doodlebug's So Punny collection will make you a convert! In fact, this collection is so cute and so versatile that you will be using it for everything from Valentine's Day to Father's Day to birthdays to Pizza Day (actually, I'm not sure if there is a pizza day, but if not, let's invent one just so we have an excuse to craft with this collection some more)!
 I decided to put together a trio of Valentine's cards for those nearest and dearest to me. The best thing about this collection was that I was able to find cute die cuts in the Odds and Ends collection that were perfect for my hubby and two daughters... an adorable(but manly) BBQ themed card for my hubby...
...a gummi bear themed card for my youngest daughter who is a lover of all candy that squishes...
...and a pizza-themed card for my oldest daughter that would eat cheese pizza every day if we let her (actually, she would probably alternate with rice...and guess what - this collection would have a rice-themed card covered too). Oh, and if cheese pizza isn't your jam, there are pepperoni pizza die cuts and even fully loaded-pizza die cuts too!
Yes that's right, you could pull together multiple pizza-themed cards with just one package of the Odds and Ends! You will love the Odds and Ends to pieces (sorry - I couldn't resist)!
And if the Odds and Ends were not enough to get you crafting with this collection, the adorable papers will be! I teamed up the BBQ with this cute soda paper from the 6X6 paper pad. I love the fact that the print is smaller so it accents the BBQ and doesn't over-take it!
Add some fun Sprinkles, mini doilies and some cute mini paper clips and you are all set! I cannot wait to keep creating with this collection.
 So there you have it! Whether you are a Valentine's Day fan or not, this collection will find a place in your heart! Thanks for stopping by!

So Punny | Pizza Box Valentine Class Treats by Tya

So how fun is this So Punny Collection? I adore it! It is perfect for making Valentines- especially Valentines for kids! I thought it would be fun to make a batch of Valentine class treats using the darling Pizza icons that are now an adorable cut file! Cut files are great to use when you have to make a big batch of Valentines like for a child's class or a bunch of friends.
I made the boxes from this file on my Silhouette. Super simple and quick to put together. I used some Cherry , Limeade and Lily White Gingham Linen pattern paper for the box bases.The pizzas were downloaded here over on Lori Whitlock's site. I used Pizza #1 and Pizza #2.  I downloaded these and opened them as an SVG file in my Silhouette program. I used some Cherry, Marigold, Maple, and Beetle Black Textured Cardstock  on the pizzas. I glued the pizzas together and  then added a few pink Sprinkle Enamel dots for the cheeks on the pizzas.

Inside the boxes I found some of these Gummy Pizzas that fit perfect inside the boxes. They are such a fun little surprise and my kids love them so hopefully other kids do to :)

Here are some close ups of the boxes. I decorated each on with some cute sentiments from the Chit Chat ephemera. The large hearts are also from the Chit Chat. The small tiny hearts are from the new Tiny Hearts Sprinkles. 

Thank you so much for stopping by today. Hopefully I have inspired you to ditch those boring boxed store bought Valentines and make these little cuties with your kiddos today! Happy Crafting!

So Punny | Siblings Love by Caroli Schulz

Hello there my dear Doodlebug friends! Today I want to share another layout I made with the So Punny collection, this time with a Valentine's theme.

I feel so lucky and thankful for the great bond my two kids have. Although they have almost 7 years of difference, they are good friends and love and support each other unconditionally. This siblings love is what I tried to document in this layout.

One thing I love about this collection is that they included black color, love how black pops froma ll other bright colors, it is a pretty effect so I udes some black in my layout. 

This time I went for a classic design with a column in the middle. These two gnomes seemed perfect for my siblings love idea so i used them as main embellishment and part of my title.

Also, I used few of the the new Chit Chat diecuts, I love them! they add a funny detail to any project.

I wanted to have a lot of black to make a great contrast with bright colors, so I used black Abigail alpha for my title. 

Here you can see how my layout came out, I like it although it's pretty simple it has a lot of volume.

I hope you liked this idea and get inspiration for working with So Punny collection, thanks for your visit.
Have a great day!

So Punny | Planner Pages with Nathalie

With February being the month of love and Valentine's Day, I decided to decorate my monthly planner page with the So Punny collection and I love the result! It is so easy to pretty up any planner with die-cuts, patterned papers, stickers, doilies and washi tapes from Doodlebug Design!
I first cut apart the square stamps from the "Work of Heart" patterned paper and adhered them here and there in the boxes I was not using. To continue with the mail theme, I added the most precious letter and stamp stickers from the Icons sticker sheet.
Doilies are a Valentine's Day staple so I placed some pink ones at the edges. They bring another touch of color but also allow for layering, like here with a big die-cut:
A few strips of "My Love" washi tape bring all the colors together. I also added more stickers, this time from the This & That 12x12 sheet using foam dots under some of them to add dimension. 
My final and possibly favorite touch was making this planner clip with the typewriter Doodle Pop:
Anytime I go back to this page, I can't help but smile. "So Punny" is really a fun and versatile collection. I am thinking about making a few last minute Valentine's cards with it but today, I hope to have inspired you to use it into your favorite planner(s)! 
If you have any questions for me, leave them in the comments or reach out to me on Instagram. Until next time, happy crafting!
