LOTS O' LUCK - Llama | with Jennifer

I've been wanting to create a llama project for some time now. Even though the Lots O' Luck collection is St. Patrick's Day themed, I thought it would be a perfect fit with it's bright rainbow palette.
I used the Doodlebug llama cutting file, but changed the legs and added a rocker. This piece is made from layers of foam board and chipboard.
I used the Bonnie Lass patterned paper in both the 6x6 and 12x12 sizes to cover the head and body of the llama. Some chunky twine was used to highlight the ears and the tuft of hair on his head. Flower die-cuts, leaves and sprinkles were added too.
A rainbow and more flower die-cuts were used around his neck. I also added a scalloped border around the edge of the llama and stitching for some texture.
Coordinating cardstock was used to create the Llama title. Tiny gold heart stickers were placed on either side to finish off the project.

LOTS O' LUCK - Beautiful Skirt Layout | with Caroli

I love clothes, specially dresses and skirts, so when I found this polka dots and clovers skirt I really fell crazy in love with it. 
Midi skirts are my current wardrobe obsession, and this one is my absolute favorite, so when I saw Lot's Of Luck collection I knew it was perfect for documenting my pretty clovers skirt. All the clovers and green were the perfect fit for my photos. 

I went for a simple design with central columns and used plenty of diecuts from the Odds&Ends package, my favorite item from all Doodlebug Design collections. 

I love when scrapbooking is an excuse to do something in real life, like this time, when using the beautiful Lots O' Luck collection was the excuse to dress up, feel gorgeous and pose like a model in the hedge of my neighbor :)
I hope you like this simple design, maybe you also have a fave outfit you would like to document, just do it! This is the kind of stuff you will surely forget about in few more years and scrapbooking is such a precious tool to treasure your happy memories.

 Thank you for stopping by today!

LOTS O' LUCK - Daily Doodles Planner Pages | with Anabelle

Who doesn't love rainbows and unicorns? They are bright, fun and make you smile. That's why when I dug into my Lots o' Luck goodies and decided to set up my Ladybug Daily Doodle after Valentine's Day, I jumped right into the rainbows. There are so many elements in this collection that made it possible to focus on that aspect of the collection. Here's how the front of my planner turned out. I love opening it up and seeing the bright paper, the cute unicorns and the beautiful colors looking back at me.
I covered my TN insert with the sweet rainbow paper. Then, because I love it so much and wanted to make it the focus of the cover, I just added one of the 3 by 4 journaling cards and a few heart Odd and Ends. I used foam adhesive on them to make them pop.
Filling the pockets in my Daily Doodle is one of my favorite parts of decorating. Here, I pulled the adorable unicorns, the wishing well and added the Dots and Sprinkles. The Odds and Ends words perfectly match the feeling that this pocket has. 
Next, I decorated my insert for the upcoming week. As I mentioned in my last blog post, I am loving how I can create a customized layout that fits my needs. Since I'm using this one for my work planner, I just created spaces for Monday-Friday. I used the border strips from the This and That sticker page to define the spaces. I love the Abigail font stickers and used those to label the days of the week. The Icon stickers added some details, as well. On the opposite page, I used the Teensy Type to create my other section. 
As you can see, Lots O' Luck is not just a St. Patrick's Day collection. The rainbows and unicorns in the collection, when used alone, give it a whole different feel. Have fun using these elements on your projects!

LOTS O' LUCK - The Leprechaun Made Me Do It Layout | with Virginia

Did you know that it's only 23 days until Spring? It's still typical Winter weather where I live and I cannot wait to hear the sweet chirping of birds and the reveal of a little more green in my garden.  At least I have the latest Lots o' Luck collection to cheer me up, the bright green, yellow and gold colours of this beautiful release just makes me so happy!
The page I'm sharing today is inspired by the cute elements on the This & That sticker sheet.  The speech bubble 'the leprechauns made me do it' gave me a giggle because it matched perfectly with the t-shirt saying my grandson is wearing.  Any shenanigans are diverted by his sweet smile and of course the leprechauns lurking about, right!

I love the various patterned green papers in this collection. I combined the cute argyle pattern with the little shamrocks and added the black scalloped sticker border at the top portion of my page.  I like to use the sticker borders to cover up the seam where two pattern papers meet.
I made a little badge (added banners) with the circle tag 'kiss me I'm Irish'.  The gold banding around the tag is the perfect amount of shine and bling for this boy-themed page.

Hope this inspires you with some creative ideas to use up those awesome elements from the This & That sticker sheet!

Lots O' Luck - Leprechaun Trap | with Brigit

St. Patrick's Day is definitely a well celebrated holiday among my family members we are all about wearing green and drinking Guinness!! So I'm always excited for a Doodlebug St. Paddy's collection and Lots o' Luck is simply adorable!!

For my project, I used the gold coin inn svg file, I think this collection is absolutely perfect for this leprechaun trap, I really love how it came out.

I didn't have wood to make the ladder so I just used some of Doodlebug's gold sugar coated cardstock and it really came out great. I cut two pieces 1 1/4" x 6" and scored it down the long way 1/4" four times, then I punched 5 holes an inch apart on each piece. I cut another strip 1 3/4" and rolled up about an inch each piece tightly to glue into each hole to form the ladder rungs.

Since the inn is supposed to be a leprechaun trap and I didn't have a coin I cut out two gold circles and used the gold shamrock sticker instead, also I used the st. patrick's day sticker instead of the sign that comes with the project.

Doodlebug Products Used:
irish lad double-sided cardstock
so charming double-sided cardstock
lots o' luck double-sided cardstock
lots o' luck this & that sticker

We are absolutely delighted to introduce our special Guest Designer - Zsoka Marko and we know you are going to love Zsoka's beautiful designs using the French Kiss collection.
Zsoka is an incredible talent who is from Hungary but lives in Germany with her Dutch boyfriend and their 10-year-old son. She has been crafting ever since she can remember and has dabbled in crafts including glass/porcelain/silk painting, bead weaving, mosaics in all forms, cake/cookie decorating, papaercrafts and lots more. She "needs to craft to keep sane"! Scrapbooking has been Zsoka's main focus since early in 2015 and now she has added card making to the mix. She says "I love, love, love patterned papers and all colors of the rainbow, so you won't be seeing me use a lot of white and solids". 
And that love of patterned papers and rainbows colors was one of the reasons why we thought Zsoka would be a wonderful fit to guest design for Doodlebug. Please make her welcome!

Zsoka here with you today! I'm so honored to have been invited by Doodlebug Designs to guest on their blog! And that with the cutest collection ever! Have you guys seen the French Kiss collection?! I love love love that the colors are not your typical Valentine's colors - the addition of that gorgeous blue is just fabulous!
I actually had a hard time putting down the collection, I only did because I had other deadline work to do. I've created 3 layouts and 4 cards for today's post. I hope you enjoy!
For my first layout I chose my most favorite paper from the collection. Isn't this blue just gorgeous?! 
I cut the Floral Square Frame cut file from Handipaper from white textured card stock and backed some of it with various patterned papers. I added some foam adhesive to the back and adhered the cut file to the background. 
I layered some tissue paper and patterned paper behind my photo and tucked all this behind the wreath. I added a some embellishments around the photo, an adorable bow clip and some sentiment die cuts. I also used one of the die cuts for my title. As a finishing touch, I scattered some enamel dots around the wreath.

On my next layout I used the Rainbow cut file from Handipaper - I figured it would go perfectly with the cloud patterned paper! 
I desperately love dimension and 3d flowers! I die cut 3 layered flowers (cut file is from Paige Evans) using many different patterned papers to showcase more of this lovely collection! I added enamel dots for the flower centers. 
I backed the rainbow with patterned papers as well and glued it down on my background paper. I also ran my sewing machine over the rays because the white cut file didn't stand out so well. I added some tissue paper behind my photo and glued it down.
To finish off the layout, I placed several die cuts, stickers and a clip, here and there.
On my last layout I went with a partially white background which I don't do often! But I love that crisp white against the blues and pinks/reds, so I couldn't help myself.
I cut the Floral Frame cut file from Handipaper in various sizes. First I backed the flowers and leaves   with patterned paper, then I added a photo to the biggest and more patterned papers to the other two.
I added some machine stitching to the frames so that they stand out from the background. I placed the frames on foam adhesive and glued them in place.
I decorated my page with lots of die cuts and some enamel hearts. 
As for the cards. As soon as I saw the teeny tiny envelope pack, I knew I had to make some cards! Aren't they the most adorable thing you've seen?! The bigger envelope on the left is a layered sticker, that comes in a different pack. The tiny ones come flat on sheets, you have to assemble them, but that takes like 10 seconds!
I die cut a scallop rectangle from patterned paper for my background. I also attached a piece of red scallop sticker at the bottom. I then arranged the envelopes the way I liked them and glued them down. I filled some with a note, some with hearts (also included in the mini envelope pack). 
I added a few strips of patterned papers and stickers to the white card base, then die cut a big heart from blue patterned paper (I used the 6x6 paper pad for my cards). I glued a mini envelope on top and scattered some die cut and enamel sticker hearts all around. For the sentiment I used a die cut tag which I added to the card on pop dots.
I just had to use the adorable kids flying airplanes on my last two cards! I created two A2 size top folding card bases (landscape), attached some patterned paper on top, then added a slightly smaller piece of white card stock too. 
I pulled out all clouds I could find - die cuts and stickers. I used two big ones on the girl card, as well as some heart balloons. I added foam adhesive to the balloons and the plane/banner for a more dimensional look. A cute enamel birdie and bow finish off this card.
For my boy card I used a lot more clouds - some of which I placed on pop dots. The plane and the banner are also attached with foam adhesive. I scattered some enamel hearts in between the clouds. Oh and the boy is also accompanied by a little enamel bird! Last but not least I added some border stickers at the bottom of both cards.
That's it! I hope you enjoyed my projects as much as I enjoyed creating them!
A big thank you to Doodlebug for having me!
And thank you all for stopping by today! Have an amazing day!

LOTS O' LUCK - Card Set | with Barbara

Hello, I’m back today with some cards using the Lots o’ Luck Collection from Doodlebug Design. It definitely has a St. Patrick’s Day vibe but there’s so much more that you can do with it. 

For my first card I started by adhering a strip of paper from the Bonnie Lass Double sided paper in the 6 x 6 paper pad across the bottom of a white card stock base with Tuxedo Strip washi tape and then adhered the card front with foam tape. I added more strips of Bonnie Lass paper and several pieces from the Lots o’ Luck Odds & Ends collection to create a little scene. This little leprechaun is adorable, don’t you think? 

Next up a birthday card. First I sponged some aqua ink on my card front and adhered it with foam tape to the card base. At the bottom I used Some Rainbow’s End Double-Sided paper from the 6 x 6 paper pad and a strip of 12 x 12 Gold Sugar Coated card stock. The Happy Birthday elements at the top are from the Lots o’ Luck Odds & Ends collection and the rainbow, clouds, and unicorns at the bottom are from the Icons Sticker sheet. I added some card stock on the back of them and popped everything up on foam for dimension. I added a matching Rainbow Hearts Shape Sprinkle to each of the letters in “Happy” to finish off.

For my third card I started with a white card stock base and covered the entire front with So Charming double-sided paper from the 6 x 6 Lots o’ Luck Paper Pad. Then I again sponged some aqua ink on more white card stock and added some Green Grass Washi Tape across the bottom to ground the scene. Next I built the scene with die cuts from the Odds & Ends Collection and a couple of Icons Mini Stickers, then finished off with some Gold Sprinkles.
And that’s it from me—I hope you got some inspiration for using this collection from my cards today. Thanks so much for stopping by!
