So Much Pun Planner Pages | with Anabelle

So let's "Taco About" how cute So Much Pun Too, is! I loved the first collection and was so excited when it was announced that this one was joining the line up. My favorite thing about the line is that there are a ton of little mini collections in it! I had to pull out the Taco pieces (since they are my favorite food) to create my first planner spread with it. As usual, Doodlebug doesn't disappoint! I love how it turned out.
So, no lie, I got so hungry creating this spread, I texted my girlfriend and we went out for Mexican! But, how can you blame me? The adorable taco paper, the stickers and those sprinkles!!! Enough to drool over.

I love the red gingham paper with this food filled pattern. They are the perfect complement for each other. I feel like I'm getting ready to sit down for a yummy meal! I added the large sticker on my dashboard, layered it over the doily, and used foam stickers to give it some dimension. I love a lot of texture on my dashboards. The sprinkle dots added even more.
The weekly spread I designed used a lot of stickers from both the Icon and Mini Icon sheets. And of course I had to use my new favorite washi! Isn't it adorable??? 
The red and green fancy frills were a perfect addition to these elements. I love using them on my spreads. I cut this cute saying from one of the patterned papers. I glued it down, but you could use it as a note card and write extras on the back, as well.
And finally, I grabbed this adorable saying from the chit chat pack. I love it! The little happy guacamole sticker looks so cute with it. I created the clips using the Taco Doodlepops as toppers for my spread. Just hot glue them to a paper clip and you're good to go!

So, are you hungry now? I told you so!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

So Much Pun Card Set | with Karen

I have a confession to make - I do not have a green thumb. I try, I really do! But plants and I often don't see to eye to eye on things - like how much water, sun and nutrients they should need! But Doodlebug has saved me again. Because the cute set of plants in the new So Much Pun collection - now these plants I can handle!
I mean come on! They are even still smiling after I have had my "non-green" thumbs on them! Aw - I love these plants!
I decided to go with a set of step cards for this collection. I love how you can play around with dimension on step cards, and with all the fun die cuts from the Odds and Ends and Chit Chat packs, you can really make some cards that pop! Since this collection has such a huge variety of themes, I started my process by laying out all the Chit Chat sentiments in similar themes and then picked one set to work with. I loved that this plant theme covered everything from general celebration, to get well to... ...Happy birthday cards! In fact, I could have created even more. Oh, and when you are making your cards, don't be afraid to put some of the die cuts together in your own groupings. I love how this little cactus is peeking out from behind the bigger aloe plant (although I did consider hoarding this little cactus for another project, I am glad I teamed him up on this one). And the same theory goes for the Chit Chat sentiments too! While they definitely stand on their own, consider putting two together for a more specific message (my favourite it the little thyme plant telling the dill plant that she is a kind of a big dill)! Sprinkles; always find there way onto my cards, especially when they coordinate perfectly. I love the different texture they add, and there always seems to be that one spot that can do with a bit of shine or sparkle. And mini paper clips and mini doilies are a staple in this card maker's toolkit! Play with dimension on the sides as well, and don't forget that the 6X6 paper pad that I used for the floral print also has some adorable sentiments inside that work perfectly on cards - like this "I herb you were sick" one! Pop them on top of some of the new Petite Prints and you are all set to go! So green thumb or not, give these cuties a try! I think you will find that, like all things Doodlebug, they are just delightful!
Thanks for stopping by! Hugs,

So Much Pun Planner Pages | with Jennie

I've been keeping up with my documenting in my travellers notebook inserts and it just feels so fun.  I'm inspired to keep up with them and I think a large part of it is the scale of the project.  I can create something so manageable - yet everything goes together.  It's really so perfect for my life right now.
So, I'm working on an insert that is just favorites.  Photos, moments, stories, whatever!  There are absolutely no rules.  So, I pulled out a couple of photos so I could create a couple of pages and I am in love!

I was so excited when I could combine both an adorable photo + moment with that great little frog!  How cute is he?  The entire So Much Pun collection is just a joy to work with -- I mean, the colors!  The images.  The whole thing is just PUN.  Whoops!  Fun! But, as always, the Odds & Ends are the perfect embellishment!
I'm also pretty excited about the Doodlebug Sequins, too.  I love the colors and the simplicity.  They are such a cute addition to any page -- just a tiny bit of glue and you are set.
I couldn't stop there, though.  My son also loves cheeseburgers.  So, the cheeseburger icons in this collection were just calling to me to use!

Isn't the 6x6 patterned paper pad just perfect?  I think so!  I love it for use in my travelers notebook -- the size is perfect and so is the scale of the patterns.  Just so good in my planners, too!
But you knew I had to use the Perfect Combo Sprinkles.  Look at them!  I'm just so smitten with each little piece and the ketchup & mustard was perfect here!
Do you see what I did there with the Sprinkles?  Ketchup, mustard and pickles!  I crack myself up!
Do you love this collection too?  Follow along with Doodlebug on Instagram so you can see how everyone is using this playful collection!

So Much Pun - Perfect Combo Layout | with Caroli

My kids love french fries and junk food, and I must admit that I love it too! Although its not the best food in the world, once a while I take them to have a junk treatment and have fun eating some fries.
This is the first layout I've made using So Much Pun and from the moment I saw this collection I knew I had to scrap some photos of my french fries lovers.
In this layout I went for a funny and colorful approach: I cut this big tittle using my Silhouette Cameo and backed all the letter using some of the papers of the 6x6 inches pad. The patterns of this pad are smaller, so they are great for backing cut files without loosing the design of the paper.

I chose as main focus of my layout these adorable icons from the Odds&Ends package, I added an extra cute detail by putting some pink cheeks made of sprinkles to some of the guys using some glitter sprinkles.

In this one I just added a few lines of journaling, can you believe it? I used my recently purchased Typecast typewriter, love the vintage effect
I love how funny and colorful this layout came out, it totally captures the spirit of my kids eating junk, LOL!
I enjoyed working with this collection, it is very versatile, so you can use it for practically anything! I'm already working on a new project I'll share with you all soon :) Thank you for stopping by today and have a lovely weekend!

So Much Pun BackPack | with Brigit

Here's a cool 3D backpack project I made decorated with the new So Much Pun Collection. With school starting here soon this would make a great gift for a student or teacher and what makes it that much cuter is this super fun space paper and embellishments. What I love about this collection the most is the versatility, there is definitely something in it for everyone and for all occasions!

This was a fun project to put together, I used the backpack from svgcuts back to school kit and cut it out using my cricut maker. It was hard choosing what paper I was going to use but that little out of this world doodle pop alien with moon and stars won me over, so space it was.

I used perfect combo, and the front and back of far out from the 12 x 12 paper collection. The speech bubble is from the so much pun chit chat pack and the base of the bag is sunshine textured cardstock.

The enamel stars are from the out of this world shape sprinkles pack and I used a blue jean boutique button with some boy twine on the latch.

I'm always looking for ways to use Doodlebug's adorable washi tape and I think the out of this world washi worked perfectly layered on top of the straps.

Hope you enjoyed this project, thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Mixing Patterns on Your Projects | with Nicole

Hi Doodlebug fans ! Nicole here today to talk all about mixing patterns easily on your project.
Truth is, for most projects, I use the Doodlebug Designs 6x6 paper pads. It allows me not to waste a lot of that pretty paper, but instead stretch my supplies even further too. I started this page by die cutting out these amazing flowers from one of the Doodlebug Designs Silhouette Cut files (#154672) and various papers from the Hello 6x6 paper pad.

I added in some punched circles to fill the insides of the flowers from the same paper pad, in alternating colors and then added some bling using Hello glitter sprinkles and a few Boutique Buttons too.
I used a collection of letter stickers to create my title on a journaling card trimmed from a 12x12 sheet, and then layered my flowers around that and my photos, tucking in some diecut leaves from Doodlebug cardstock!

Happy Birthday Jomelle!

Happy Birthday to me!

Fairy Tales collection is all about unicorns, castles, rainbows, presents and balloons. 
 What a perfect way to document my birthday celebration this year by creating a "Birthday" theme set up in my TN.
 I'm so addicted to making covers for my inserts. I made 4 different covers that can be used for monthly, weekly, daily and pocket folder to hold odds & ends pieces. I created them by cutting the 12x12 paper to the size of my notebook insert. I used dark pink and light pink doily to add layers. I think the dark pink doily really brings out the embellishments in each of the cover.
 I wanted this cover to be on the front. It looks like the unicorn is blowing out the candle and it goes well with the birthday theme I'm going for. I added light pink and dark pink twines to add extra flair and decor to my set up.
 I decorated my pockets with odds & ends pieces, doily and couple of cardstock papers that I cut to fit in the pockets.
 You can see how I set up and how I used the covers for the inserts I created.

My close friends knows that I am not a huge fan of purple so I cringed when I was creating this cover. To be honest I wasn't sure I wanted to use this purple cover for my set up but I figured it does match perfectly. I didn't mind having purple in this collection since it kinda blends in with the rest of the colors. (LOL) 

 I cannot wait to document my birthday celebration this month. I am looking forward to having lunch or dinner with my family somewhere special to celebrate my birthday. I am also looking forward in spending some time with my planner girls. I am most excited to visit Doodlebug Headquarters at the end of this month.
 I just love the side view of my TN especially when I start filling her up. I love me some chunky TN.
Thank you for stopping by and I hope you enjoy viewing my birthday theme set up in my TN. If you like to see more pictures once I fill her up and make her all chunky, please check out my Instagram (link below).
