Hi Doodlebug crafty friends! Do you ever feel like Doodlebug can read our minds? This new Cute and Crafty Collection feels like everything I would ever dream of in a paper collection! I'm so excited to see all the projects people are going to make with this adorable creativity themed collection. Something for every crafter, from stamping to sewing and scrapbooking. I love it! It was hard to decide what to make first. I decided to make a sign for my craft room! I used a chipboard sign shape that I got at Hobby Lobby, and went to town decorating it with paint, paper, stickers, Sprinkles and much more. It's already sitting on a shelf in my craft room next to my idea books!

I started by painting the sign with a few coats of white craft paint. I set it aside to dry and decided on my paper choices and stickers etc. I ended up using the pencils paper as my background paper. It has all the colors in it, and it's such a nice pattern. Next I used the Alex Alphabet Dies and die cut the letters from black cardstock. I mounted the letters onto a white strip of cardstock and lined it with Doodlebug Textured Cardstock. I knew I wanted to use that big Sticker as my main image!

I used a bunch of the mini icons stickers to add a row of happy crafting items across the top of the sign. I mean smiling ink pads and stamps?? C'mon!!

I used the Doodlebug Nesting Scallops Dies to add a design element on the lower right corner and added the pencils cup sticker. I affixed the patterned paper to the chipboard sign shape using clear glue. I traced the shape with a pencil and cut the corners out by hand.

This is a whole giant pile of happiness!  

 This is what the sign looked like before I got started! It's so fun to decorate with Doodlebug!


 I used a white gel pen to add 'highlights' to the black letters. I put a heart in the middle of the letters and added some pretty floral Sprinkles elements. I added the Live Love Create sticker underneath the words.

I'm so happy to share this project with you! I'm wishing you a very happy, cute and crafty day! I'll be back soon with some more projects. Take care!
