Doodlebug Dragon Tails

Can I please get a huge WOOT! WOOT! for this adorable collection Dragon Tails!  I'm a blues/greens kinda gal and this collection is so versatile,  I see lots of projects in my future!

I created an 8.5x11 page using some of the 6x6 papers, I love that the papers are on a smaller scale showcasing the beautiful patterns in this collection.  I accented the photo using a few doodle pops, fun card stock stickers and die cuts!


For my next page I created a clean and simple page and used the pre-sewn mini garlands.  How awesome to get that home-made sewn look with no effort!



There are so many cute birthday-themed elements in this collection, who can resist making a cute birthday card!  I used a treat bag as the base for either a hidden message or gift card holder.  Hope there is a little 'roaring' crafting time in your future!

Doodlebug-Fairy Tales

I didn't think paper crafting could get any happier until you add rainbows, unicorns, and sparkly shape sprinkles! I have to admit I use to hoard sprinkles but now I give myself 'permission' to use them so I made a little starburst pattern using sprinkles and twine.  I love that these sprinkles have glitter in them for that extra sparkle!

Do you ever hit a road block when it comes to journaling? if so journal-lift a quote.  I used the quote 'you are the gold at the end of the rainbow', this quote was taken from one of the 4x6 cut-apart cards and was the exact sentiment fitting the photo.




The 4x6 cut-apart cards also make awesome card bases.  I love the clouds and unicorns of this 4x6 card . The cardstock stickers are perfectly sized (a bit smaller) so that I can pop them up onto the same image on the card giving them a doodle pop-esque effect.  Adding a few stickers and sprinkles  you have an fabulous card in minutes!



The next card uses one of the card stock sticker tags as the main sentiment for the card. Again I love using ready-made elements in putting a card together! Hope you all have a magical crafty day!

Doodlebug Collectible Pins!

March greetings Doodlebug friends! Often after creating a scrapbook page I don't immediately put it into my album.  In fact, truth be told I actually have a pile of finished layouts sitting in a pile at the corner of my desk.  Sometimes I like to flip through this pile just to relive the memory and the creative process.   Now with the Doodlebug Clip-Art board I can rotate displaying layouts, yay!

See those cute icons at the top of my board, those are the Doodlebug collectible pins! Who can resist the cuteness factor of these wonderful pins?  I love that I have enough room on all sides of my display board to collect more pins!!

March Calendar Page

I love linear and grid designs so it is no wonder I was drawn immediately to creating a layout using  the Doodlebug calendar pages.  Our family has enjoyed seeking sun and warmth during the March break so I chose a bright orange calendar page as my base.  There are 35 daily squares meaning 35 opportunities to fill and embellish with fun pattern papers, ephemera and photos- go crazy!!  Also, don't be afraid to cut your photos into squares to enhance the mosaic feel of the layout.



I like to pop up sticker titles and sometimes it's little tricky if the title font is thin and you don't want the title to cave in where there are no foam dots.  I use a bit of twine in between the foam dots to give the word that extra support.



Here are some close-ups of the page, loving all the fabulous ephemera from the Fun in the Sun collection!


Thanks for dropping by, have a wonderful crafty day!

I have to admit my heart melted instantly at the first sight of the adorable bunnies, cute little chicks and sweet treats in the latest Easter Express collection.  You'll love stringing together the cute Easter train across your projects and the shape sprinkles are absolutely lovable!

Here is my page,  I couldn't resist showing off all the cute little animals ephemera die cuts.  If you look closely at one of the photos, the bunny shape sprinkle fits onto the bunny clip if you want a little more dimension on your project. 





Here is an Easter card that is super easy to assembly.  Using the house die cut along with a a doodle-pop and a few sprinkles you have a cute card ready to give away!

Emma is holding an umbrella in her photo pose.  I layered the umbrella doodle-pop on top of the acetate umbrella and it fit perfectly into her hands!

Doodlebug- Cream & Sugar!

Hello everyone, here to share some projects using Doodlebug's adorable Cream & Sugar collection.  Having a love for lattes and a sweet tooth, I am just so thankful all the delicious sweet treats in this collection are calorie free, phew!

As soon as I saw the frappuccino icon in this collection I had the perfect photo in mind to scrapbook.  I used a Doodlebug treat bag to cluster a grouping of embellishments beside the photo to enhance the 'Sweet' title on the page.






The Cream & Sugar collection has plenty of yummy bits perfect for making cards for that special someone.  On this card, I used a Doodlebug mini love letter to create a Valentines day card.






Happy crafting and I hope your projects are sweetened with a bit of  Cream & Sugar! I know I couldn't resist it!
