Chit Chat Tags | with Virginia

Let's not have idle conversation about Chit Chats, instead let's give a whopping loud shout out to them!  Today I'm going to share some tags using Chit Chats from each of the So Punny, Down on the Farm, Hello and Sweet Summer collections.  I added a variety of machine stitching techniques to the tags for a little more dimension.
The first tag showcases beautiful gold foiled elements from the Hello line.  I machine stitched across the top part of the tag and intentionally left the ends uncut for some random whimsy.

From the Sweet Summer collection, here is a fun birthday tag. I stitched around the speech bubble to highlight the main message of the tag.

Who can resist pairing up Chit Chats with Doodle-pops?  Not me!! 

The last tag highlights some awesome puns from the So Puny line! 

Hope this inspires you to reach for some Chit Chats on your next project(s), they are so addictive!

Hello Gift Set | with Brigit

Hi there, today I have a gift set to share using the beautiful paper collection Hello. The butterfly-shaped shaker card was created using the svg file from the hello collection. I also used it to make the cutout on the front of the bag.

The card was very easy to create, I just made an internal offset of the butterfly in Silhouette Studio to form my frame and cut out 7 layers gluing them all together so the sequins shake very well.

Using the same butterfly and frame I resize it to fit the front of the bag and then made the cutout. A super simple project to put together and the Hello collection makes it look so classy!

Hello Cards| with Tya

Some of my favorite projects to make with my Doodlebug supplies is handmade cards. I love having a stash of cute cards that I can pull out at a moments notice and send to someone special. The adorable Hello line is the perfect line to create some really fun cards. 
We have these awesome card and envelope sets now that come with each collection that match the colors perfectly, so I pulled this set out and got to making 4 cards. It was really easy and the card shapes are adorable and I had so much fun making these. Here are a few close ups of the 4 cards:

Thank you so much for stopping by and taking a peek at my project.  I hope I have inspired you to pick up the Hello collection and make some cards of your own. Happy Crafting!

August Planner Pages using Hello | with Jomelle

 August is my Birthday Month and I will be visiting the Doodlebug Headquarter in Salt Lake City for Suzy West Designs' Let's Get Creative Doodlebug Design. I am super excited for this trip with a couple of my planner besties. So, I wanted to create my Dashboard for the month of August and what's more perfect than the suitcase as the prime focus?
 I knew I wanted to make a suitcase but I didn't know how to incorporate it in my planner. I was actually having a mental block and it took me some time to figure it out. 
I finally decided to use the suitcase and create a dashboard. I kept changing my mind in choosing the perfect background. I switched back and forth with the white paper with small blue polka dots or the yellow bows. I went with the yellow bows since I like the contrast with the dark blue.
I didn't want the suitcase to be permanently glued to this dashboard so I used a washi tape to adhere it, that way I can remove it and use it as a page marker later on. 
I didn't want to stop there. I am on a roll. It's been a while since I made a shaker dashboard. It was fun making this but very tedious at the same time. I had to use a tweezer to put the sequins inside the plastic. It was such a hard work but oh so worth it.
 I used the same pattern paper for the background in each of the squares and then I cut up one of the paper from the 6x6 paper pad which has these rectangle pieces.

 The sequins I used are all from Doodlebug. They come in these very cute containers and you may think there's not a lot of sequins inside, think again. Do you like to use sequins in your project?
Thank you stopping by and I hope I was able to inspire you in creating your own dashboard or shaker dashboard. In the meantime, I will be counting the days until I visit the Doodlebug Headquarter.

Woof Woof Layout | with Traci

I decided to change it up for my post today with a page layout about my granddaughter and this adorable pup, Bella.   Rylee has always loved animals, so when my sister brought her poodle to visit I knew Rylee would be excited.   
When I saw these photos, I couldn't wait to document this new friendship.  I wanted the background to be blue to match Rylee's beautiful eyes, but I also wanted to create a little more detail around the edge.
I started with a sheet of 12x12 white card stock and adhered some scraps from my So Punny collection around the edge of the white base.  I cut a sheet of "I'm Daisy for You" paper to 11.5"x11.5" and adhered it to the center of the base page, then built all of my photos and embellishments on top of that.
Some of the cute die cuts are from So Punny, and others are from the Puppy Love collection.
I use the tiny heart sprinkles on just about everything I create.  They are perfect for a sweet, tiny pop of color.   Thanks for stopping by today everyone!  I hope I've inspired you with this fun, colorful layout.  Happy scrapping!

Little Rider Layout using Down On The Farm | with Caroli

In our family everyone loves horses, including my little boy who at the age of two years he rode a pony for the first time and loved it! I'm so glad we are able to capture such special moments in our children's lives and then preserve that memory in a fun and sweet way.

I used Down on The Farm collection for this layout, all the horses and farm theme seemed just perfect for documenting this memory. My idea was to have lots of clusters of photos, embellishments and journaling which is the opposite of my regular style! In general I like clean and simple layouts, but in this one I went a bit crazy and loved the result.

I used a huge amount of Odd & Ends, Chit Chat, Shape Sprinkles and Doodle Pops for embellishing my page, and adhered some of them using foam dots, the different levels make the design look more interesting. And, I simply love the little chicks in the Sprinkles, they are ADORABLE!

I built my tittle using some Teensy Typo alphas in white color and also a word I cut with my Silhouette Cameo and Better Together free font.

I hope you liked this project and got some inspiration to work with this beautiful and fun collection. Have a lovely day!

Mini Album + Video Flip Thru | with Nathalie

Unfinished Projects: I know we all have them, so today I am going to show you how to use new supplies as a great source of inspiration in tackling old, unfinished creations. 
I am almost embarrassed to admit that I have had this 4x6 Summer mini album in the works since 2011! It has been sitting in a bag with some very old stash, nothing that would excite me at this point. My solution was to tackle it with the new Sweet Summer collection!
My advice to you would be to just work on the unfinished portion (mine was halfway done) and not worry about the parts already done. Remember, the goal is to finish! If you are worried about continuity, stick to the same style/design you started with (I did) and/or go back to the beginning and add a few embellishments from your new supplies (I didn't). 
As far as supplies, I loved working with the 6x6 Sweet Summer paper pad as well as other pads (like the Swiss dot Rainbow Petite prints). I used die-cuts from the Chit Chat pack and stickers from the This & That and the Icons sheets. 
I had fun creating a couple of pages with interactive elements: a tag made out of cardstock (with a bucket list) slides into a vellum bag. I used some Chunky twine and a mini doily to match the journaling strips on the opposite page:
And finally my favorite: an insert made out of a card from the Sweet Summer Create-A-Card pack.
Since I couldn't share all the pages here, I made this very short flip-through video for you:

It feels amazing to finally be done and to fully enjoy this mini album! I hope to have inspired you to look into finishing old projects with fresh eyes and a renewed excitement thanks to this collection or any other new supplies that give you the urge to create!
