FRENCH KISS 8.5" x 11" LAYOUT | with Virginia

Inspired by a tray of beautiful and delicious eclairs I created a page using the beautiful French Kiss collection to take me away to Paris! The 'b' side of the 12x12 French Kiss paper featuring the iconic Eiffel tower was a perfect backdrop!

I used the Mini Love letters as fun accents to surround my photo. The white clouds were dry embossed with dots for some extra texture. Hope you are inspired to scrapbook a memory that transports you to a beautiful place!

Here's a cute birthday gift box I made using the purple cottage cut file, (svg, silhouette) from the Simply Spring collection. Doodlebug's cutting files are absolutely adorable and make the cutest projects, I just love creating with them.

To jazz up the treat box I used stickers from the simply spring icon sticker sheet and some sprinkles and jewels.

For the sentiment, I used a stamp from Doodlebug's flower girl stamp set layered on top of one of the banners from the simply spring chit chat pack.

Don't have a green thumb? Neither do I! That's why I love these cute paper flowers that I  "planted! I thought these flowers in a painted terra cotta pot would make the perfect gift to brighten someone's day!

I made this planter out of a 3-inch terra cotta pot that I painted with some white acrylic paint and then wrapped with some Playful Plaid paper. I then selected 5 flowers and 3 leaves from the Odds and Ends.  I  trimmed some floral wire and glued the flowers to them. I added a few Sprinkles to the centers of some of the flowers and then add some green paper shreds to the pot to fill it in. There is a styrofoam piece in the center of the pot that the floral wire is sticking in.

 Close up picture of the flowers. I love those shiny Sprinkle centers!
I also whipped up a quick card to go with the flower pot. I made the card using one of the Create-A-Card bases. I  trimmed a 4x6 inch piece of the lined paper side of the Bloomin' Bugs paper. I trimmed the aqua plaid paper from the 6x6 paper pad and notched the end into a banner shape. I then added the cute scallop floral sticker from the This and That sticker sheet and added more of those cute Sprinkles to the flower centers for some dimension. I added a green heart ephemera from the Odds and Ends and the cute banner is from the Chit Chat ephemera pieces.

This was a fun little project to put together in an afternoon! Who wouldn't love a little flower pot to brighten their day and  BONUS - no watering! LOL!  Thank you so much for stopping by the blog today! Happy Crafting!

It's a beautiful day so don't worry, BEE Happy! I was inspired by the yellow and blue color combo and the super adorable bee jelly paper clip to create a memory keeping entry in my insert.
 I thought it would be more fun to add this open flap element for journaling in my layout.
I must admit, this layout is a little bit out of the norm for me as I usually love to create a "no white space" layout. There is just something about the simplicity of this layout and yet it remains soo cute.
 I have been waiting for the perfect layout to finally use my aodrable bee clip from my stash. Aren't the two bee clips so cute together? I also used the sun and cloud paper clip that I created from previous collection. It goes well with this layout.
Thank you for stopping by and have a BEE-autiful day!

Hello, I’m back on the Doodlebug Design blog again and today I’m using Dino-mite Doodle Stamps and Doodle Cuts along with the So Much Pun Collection.

For my first card I went clean and simple to highlight the adorable dinosaur. I stamped the image on Copic-friendly white card stock with Copic-friendly black ink, cut out with the coordinating Doodle Cuts, and colored it with Copic markers. The sentiment from the set was stamped and I tied around some Ladybug Doodle Twine.
I adhered it on foam tape to a white card stock base that had been covered with patterned paper from So Much Pun 6 x 6 paper pad and finished off with some Bumblebee, Blue Jean, and Limeade Sprinkles.
For my second card I created a little framed scene. I sponged the background with aqua dye ink, added a strip of Cinnamon Textured card stock and some patterned paper from the 6 x 6 paper pad. Next I added the frame, using black card stock and a strip of Green Grass Washi tape fortified with white card stock, both adhered with foam tape.
The images were stamped on Copic-friendly white card stock with Copic-friendly black ink, cut out with the coordinating Doodle Cuts, and colored it with Copic markers, before being adhered in the scene with foam tape. The sentiment was stamped, cut into individual words, and adhered on the frame. I added a sun and some clouds and finished off with some Ladybug, Swimming Pool, and Limeade Sprinkles.
For my final card I created a scene out in the wide open spaces! Again, I sponged the background with aqua dye ink and built the scene using the palm tree patterned paper from the 6 x 6 So Much Pun paper pad to create a hillside. I added more Cinnamon Textured card stock in the foreground and added some Shape Sprinkles palm trees to add some depth

I added clouds and a sun, some tropical leaves, and the sentiment strip from the So Much Pun Chit Chat Collection. So much pun = so much fun!!!

And that’s it from me today! Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope I’ve given you some ideas for using YOUR So Much Pun collection and Dino-mite Doodle Stamps and Doodle Cuts! See you soon!

A RAINBOW OF COLORS | Layout with Tegan

A rainbow of Doodlebug Design colors from Bubblegum pink to Grasshopper green? Yes, please! I easily created this cool rainbow background using the cloud from the Doodlebug Rainbow with Clouds cut file and lots of Dot-Stripe Petite Prints patterned papers. I also used fun elements from the So Much Pun and Simply Spring collections. I love that all of the Doodlebug Design collections mix and match so well! 

To add interest to my cloud background, I used the Stone Gray Dot-Stripe Petite Prints patterned paper to cut out a second 'background'. I then adhered this to the backside of my white background (shifted up slightly) to give the clouds a gray bottom. I then placed my cloud background over 1 inch strips of the Petite Prints patterned papers in a rainbow of colors from Bubblegum to Grasshopper! I used So Much Pun Odds & Ends pieces to embellish my photo. I don't know what's more yummy...the ice cream cone in my picture or the rainbow effect background! What do you think?!
I embellished my second photo with Odds & Ends pieces from the Simply Spring (title words) and the So Much Pun (plants and the sun) collections!  I love adding a couple of the Doodlebug Sprinkles around my page. 
Thank you for joining me today! I hope I have inspired you to create a Doodlebug Design rainbow effect on your next layout!

We all have that special person that we make a great combo with!  Today I'm sharing a sweet little mini album using several of the A2 "Create-A-Cards" and the "So Much Pun" Collection.

I turned the cards horizontally, with the openings to the right.  A strip of patterned paper was cut to  9"X3.5" and scored in half.  The paper was then attached to the front card flap ( and repeated for the following card fronts). For the cover: I did leave an opening along the top so that a tag could be included. 

I used a binding system and metal comb to hold the pages together.  After embellishing a metal-rimmed tag from my stash, I slipped it onto the comb.

In prepping all of the "card" pages, I attached mats of various patterns before setting out to add the embellishments.

To stretch the remnants of the 6X6 papers, a few of the pages used pieced papers for the mats; the seams were hidden with border stickers or washi tape!

For most of the 2.5"X2.5" cut-out cards, I made them inter-active by scoring an edge and attaching wtih adhesive tape.  This is a great way to allow larger photos while still using larger design components.

A total of 4  of the "A2 Striped Assortment" Cards were used.  After completion, there are a total of 16 pages!  Use the same design concept to create a story flip-book or brag book for kids!

Thank you for joining me today!

Hi there! I have a couple of fun cards to share with you today that I created with the adorable Far Out Stamp set and coordinating dies.

For my first card, I created the background by blending Distress ink onto Bristol Board card stock and sprinkling with water. All of the images were colored with Copic markers, cut out with the coordinating dies, and adhered with foam tape.

I added a few clear sequins around to finish it up and give the illusion of a few more stars out there :)

My second card, I did pretty much exactly as the first one, blending purple Distress inks for my background instead of the blue.  Again, all of the cute images were colored with Copic markers, cut out with the coordinating dies, and added with foam tape.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
