Petite Prints Fall Layout | with Nicole

Hey there Doodlebug fans! Nicole here today to share a fall inspired using some Doodlebug Designs Petite Prints!
Doodlebug has so many great Petite Prints patterns available and the Gingham-Linen patterns are SO perfect for fall.
I chose to the Gingham-Linen Petite Prints in colors such as Ruby, Maple, Limeade, Grasshopper, Coral, Mandarin and Bumblebee and cut them into small leaf shapes, using a Doodlebug Designs Silhouette cut file.
Once all the leaves were in place, I added a bit of Doodlebug Designs Chunky Sugar Coating Glitter  to some of the leaves with some wet glue to add just a touch of sparkle and texture to my page.
I hope you can find a way to add some of the Doodlebug Designs Petite Prints to your next project!

Petite Prints Card Trio | with Brigit

I'd have to say shaped cards are my all time favorite projects to make and Doodlebug's cut files make the most cutest ones ever! The So Much Pun cut files came out recently, you can get these at Lori Whitlock's shop now or the Silhouette Design Store when they are released.
I'm such a big fan of the petite prints and I'm so happy Doodlebug came out with more patterns, I really love the two-tone color prints.

This card was super simple to put together, I used the fries cut file some lemon dot-stripe, bumblebee linen-gingham and cherry dot-stripe petite prints, strawberry, and lily white textured cardstock. I added some chunky glitter on the front fries to give it a sprinkle of salt.

This candy bar cut file is totally adorable such a sweet card. Here I used swimming pool floral-graph, stone gray dot-stripe, kraft dot-stripe, and lily white swiss dots petite prints, some chocolate chiplily white and beetle black textured cardstock. the sprinkles are from the so much pun assortment pack.

To make this shaped card I used the gumball machine cut file, this file would also make a cute shaker card. I used the cherry floral-graph, cherry dot-stripe, lemon dot-stripe, tangerine dot-stripe, swimming pool dot-stripe, blue jean dot-stripe, bubblegum dot-stripe, stone gray dot-stripelily white swiss dots petite prints, lily white and slate gray textured cardstock.

All the speech bubbles are from the so much pun chit chat pack. You can also get all the files in one big collection here.

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Petite Prints Cards | Tya's Favorite Things

Hello everyone! I have been a designer now with Doodlebug for a few years, and in those few years I have come to have some favorite products that are my go-to elements when I make my projects. I was so tickled when Doodlebug came out with 2 new Petitie Print sets. I designed a few cards showcasing the 6x6 Petite Prints.

My favorite things to design with are the Petite Prints, mini doilies, Doodlepops and Doodle Twine. Stick with these - and you have cute projects guaranteed :)
Here are a few close ups of my cards I designed. I like to really keep my cards simple, letting the products take center stage. The colors of the Petite Prints are so vibrant and the smaller patterns in the 6x6 pads are perfect for card makers.
 How cute is the little popcorn doodlepop? And this red Petite Print paper is so bright and fun!
 I love the small grid , dot and  stripe patterns , it's fun to mix and  match them all together like I did on this card above.
With so many colors, you will never be without just the right shade to match any project. Gray is sometimes a tricky color, but I had no problems getting my papers to match my Doodlepop perfectly. I like to add bows of Doodle Twine for finishing touches on my cards. 

I really had so much fun making these. The Petite Prints are honestly so fun to use and are a staple to many of my Doodlebug projects. I hope Doodlebug keeps making many, many more Petite Prints for me to use. Thanks for stopping by today! Happy Crafting!

Daily Doodles Travel Planner for Autumn | with Jomelle

Hello Autumn... It's one of my favorite times of the year as I just love the colors, the holidays, the changes, the hot drinks and I adore the fall fashion, especially wearing boots. 

I thought a fall set up and layout would be perfect for my Petite Prints project in my brand new Doodlebug 'Mint Daily Doodles Travel Planner'. I used the kraft floral graph petite prints and cut it into the size of the standard insert to create my cover. I traced the fall leaf decor-the one you see on the top right corner in the picture below (I got the leaf at Michael's) using the lemon floral graph petite prints paper and I fussy cut it. After I finished cutting, I folded it in half and I placed it on the insert cover so that half of the leaf will show on the front and the half will show on the back. I inked the edges with brown chalk ink to finish the look.

I would have never thought that the mint Daily Doodles Travel Planner will go well with the Fall theme, but now that it's all put together the colors match perfectly.

I wanted to experiment with the sequins. I placed coordinating color sequins on a 3m laminating sheet and I laminated it. I cut it into the size of the standard insert and layered it on top of the insert that I had just created. Since the sequins were randomly placed, it was a little bit challenging for me to match it to the insert so that it will not cover the stickers that I used to decorate. It worked out well at the end. It was also a challenge to photograph it without the glare of the light.

November is another month that is very special to me since it's my daughter's birthday month. She is turning 3 years old on November 27.
 I used the bon bon teensy type alpha stickers to add the Month. Noticed how the letter "R" is in upper case? Well, as I was adding the letters and I got to the "R" I noticed that I ran out of the lower case "r" I used the upper case instead. It looks just as good.
I used the "Fall Friends" icon stickers to create my layout. I bought this sticker when I went to Doodlebug Headquarter last month. Another cool thing about attending that event was that I was able to purchase some "vintage" stickers, papers and more. When I saw the little fall critters, I knew I had to use it for my petite prints project.
 We haven't decided what we're doing for my daughter's 3rd Birthday. We took her to a Disney character breakfast at Goofy's kitchen last year since she loves Mickey Mouse.
Last year we also went on a mini vacay to Moab ,Utah to see the arches the week before her birthday. This year we're hoping to go to Iceland to see the Northern Lights.
I created another page to add to my set up by using one of the 12x12 cardstock paper from the Flea Market Collection. I cut it to the size of my standard insert and I made sure that the image sits right in the middle. I then added a vellum on the bottom and glued just the corner edges to create a pocket. This can hold stickers, pictures and other embellishments. You can see how the I placed the leaf gift card in the pocket I had created.

I also found these doodads at Doodlebug Headquarter. It was in the "Last Items" bin and it was literally the last one left. I turned them into cute paper clips.
Are you as excited as me for Fall Season? My hubby would say "It's boots season" I finally get to wear my boots. Living in Southern California I don't get to wear my boots as often as I want to.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed and was inspired by my Fall Set Up in my Mint Daily Doodles Travel Planner.

Petite Prints Birthday Mini Album | with Traci

The new Petite Prints are the focus today and I just can't tell you how much I love them!  My favorite thing about these patterns?  The colors match every single collection perfectly so I never have to hunt for a solid print to match a project. Here's a great example!
The stickers that I used for this album are from the Hip Hip Hooray collection. It's an adorable birthday themed collection from a few years back, and it matches the new dot/stripe petite prints perfectly!
For my album, I chose the swimming pool, lemon, mandarin, blue jean and citrus colors.  I mixed the two sides, dots and stripes, throughout the album for a fun contrast.
On the page above, I also added a few create-a-cards ... and again, they are Doodlebug so they match!

I've started collecting sleeves of my favorite petite prints so that I always have the perfect solid print to match any collection.  I hope I've inspired you to do the same!

Petite Prints 'One Sheet Wonder' Card Set | with Virginia

Hope you have been enjoying all the Petite Prints inspiration on the blog lately.  I am loving all the new floral/grid and dot/stripe petite prints, talk about a rainbow of happiness!  The smaller scale patterns on these papers are a wonderful way for add a colourful backdrop to your craft projects.

Do you remember those one-sheet wonder templates for card makers?  I created a very simple one-sheet cutting template and used the same cutting template for two contrasting petite print papers.  I chose the yellow dot/stripe and the blue floral/grid patterns.  If you follow the cutting template you will create a pile of double-sides squares, rectangle and strips that can be layered to create nine A2-sized card fronts.
I dipped into all the awesome So Much Pun ephemera elements to embellish my cards.  My pile of ready-made birthday cards are running low so this is a great way to restock my birthday card stash!

I'll quickly run through each trio of cards and indicate which pieces are used to create the backdrops.
The first trio is simply taking rectangle and square pieces to create a simple pattern base.
Card 1- It's Nacho birthday is it?- yellow 2x4, blue 2x4 
Card 2- Have a Dino-Mite birthday!- yellow 2x4, blue 4x4
Card 3- You mean the world to me!- yellow 4x4, blue 3x3

The second trio will require a few tools - a circle punch, your favourite border punch and a trimmer.
Card 4- You're gum-believable!- blue 4x4, 4x2, yellow 3x3 (circle punched out).
Card 5- Hot dog- it's your birthday!- blue 1x12 (border punch out two 4" strips), yellow 4x4, blue 3x3
Card 6- Poppin' in to say Hi!- blue 4x4 (cut on a diagonal).
The last trio uses up the rest of the pieces, if you have a favourite die cut or punch- now is the time to use it!
Card 7- yellow 2x4, 4x4, 3x3 (circles punched out to highlight shape sprinkles).
Card 8- blue 2x12, yellow 1x12 - adhere to the card base on an angle and then trim excess.
Card 9- butterfly punch used on remaining pieces left over to cover the card front.
Hope this gives you some ideas for your next card making playtime!

Petite Prints Traveller's Notebook Pages & Card | with Nathalie.

Hello, I am here today to continue our feature of the Petite Print papers and in particular the 6x6 paper pads. I love the tiny patterns, the thickness and the rainbow of colors in these pads! Not only that, they are perfectly scaled for traveler's notebook spreads too.
Because I had printed a large panoramic photo, I wanted to use papers that would enhance it but not take away from it. The tiny patterns in the Petite Prints are gorgeous and discreet. Look at these details up close...

To create these pages, I pulled several dark grey papers: the floral one is from the Floral-Graph Rainbow Petite Prints 6x6 pad and the dot and stripe ones are from the Dot-Stripe Rainbow Petite Prints 6x6 pad. The journaling and torn edges on the bottom of my photo are done with two papers from the Floral-Graph pad (which is definitely my new favorite).
I used several blue mini doilies as embellishments including one supporting my title, spelled with Abigail alphabet stickers in white. Enamel dots in Beetle Black add the perfect finishing touch.

Once I was done, I couldn't resist making a card with the pretty scraps sitting on my table:
To the Petite Prints papers, I added die-cuts from the So Much Pun collection (Chit Chat and Odds&Ends packs) plus a few enamel dots. I love how easy and fun it turned out to be! 

Do not hesitate to purchase those 6x6 Petite Prints pads because you will get tons of use out of them!

Petite Prints Layout | with Anita

How lovely are the new petite prints.....stripes and dots, oh and the floral and graph.
They are just perfect for adding lots of colour, whether it be a background or silhouette cut flowers.
I started with a design idea to have big flowers cut from the floral and graph petite prints patterned paper. Layering them in different colours matching the flowers in the photo along with buttoned centers to add more dimension.
Next I used a background cutfile and cut the design out on my white cardstock and layering the white cardstock over the top of cupcake stripes petite prints patterned paper and machine stitching a border.
Then using a paper from the 6x6 dot - stripe I matted my photo and added 2 mini doilies behind in 2 corners. I added a few other cutfile cuts behind the opposite sides and added my big flowers on top of them. 
Then using some crepe paper I ruffled it and added it just underneath the bottom of the photo. 
Next I added a tag, paper clip and some cupcake sprinkles around the layout.
