Tell us a few things about yourself:

Lots of Color, stitching, and whimsy are all things you can regularly find on my projects.

What Doodlebug product did you enjoy using the most?
My favorite Doodlebug product to play with was the Odds & Ends!

Three fun facts about yourself:

- I love ice cream and visiting local ice cream shops
- My husband is over a foot taller than me
- I enjoy taking long distance bicycle rides on local trails.

Space-Cial Layout:
As a mom of three boys, I love a collection that can work well for both boys and girls!  So Much Pun does just that!  Today I am going to focus on the space themed elements in this collection to make a very "Space-cial" layout!  Let's blast off to some color and fun!
I was inspired by the striped patterned paper in this collection and that was my jumping off point!  Once I started cutting it up - I knew it would be perfect to do a color blocking of sorts - mixing and matching embellishments from the collection! I did opt in this case to leave the pink out!

Close-ups

There are a lot of details in this layout, take a closer look with me to catch them!

It is more obvious here how the stripes are cut apart and used. For each color I picked out several stickers as well as quotes and icons from the "Odds & Ends" packs.  First I narrowed down which ones I wanted to use then I laid all the big stuff out first.  You can see nearly every line has a big icon or phrase on it.  BUT not every one, that would have been too crowded.

Once I had all the big pieces on, then it was time to add the little details!  Stars, gumballs, and all those little elements that help to pull a layout together!  You can't forget those fabulous Self-Adhesive Sprinkles.  Those don't stray too far from any of my projects!

My title idea came from one of the cut-apart cards patterned papers.  It was too small to work for the title on this one so I just made my own!

You're Space-cial Process Video

For nearly every layout I do, I like to create a process video.  It definitely helps to pull the whole project together as a viewer and lets you see how and why I made my design decisions.


I hope you have enjoyed my layout and video?
I have another two layouts and videos to share with you today so don't forget to pop back at 9am and 12 noon to see what else I have created with this super fun, super versatile range of products from Doodlebug.
