Doodlebug Design: Patriotic Picnic

Hi Everyone, today I have a fun layout featuring Doodlebug's Patriotic Picnic!  This collection is full of fun patterns, and stickers.  It's perfect for all of your patriotic projects!  Even better, it coordinates with last year's Patriotic Parade!  I used some papers from both collections to scrap this adorable picture of my daughter and her doll all dressed up for the 2003 4th of July parade in Chatham, MA!
 
 
I based my layout on a sketch by Jen Chapin for Paper Issues.  I LOVE the new Red, White & Blue Sprinkles Vellum!!! I die cut some fun stars from it and scattered them on my layout!  Here are some close-ups....
 
 
 
 

That's it for me today...make sure to keep stopping by the Doodlebug Blog for more Patriotic Picnic inspiration from the Design Team!  Thanks for stopping by!

Lori Whitlock: Bride & Groom Favor Boxes

Hi Everyone, I'm up on the Lori Whitlock Blog today with a couple of super cute favor boxes!  I made these for a girlfriend who recently announced her engagement!  I'm just so happy for her, I had to make a little something...take a peek...
 
 
Aren't these just adorable???  I used Lori's Wedding Favor Boxes to create these cuties.  They're perfect for wedding or shower favors, just big enough to hold a few Hershey Kisses.  You can also dress them up however you like.  I used some Doodlebug Sequins and pearls to decorate mine! 
 
 Well, that's it for me today, thanks for stopping by!

One Last Bunny....

Hi Everyone, I have one last Easter project to share... I created this cute set for Lori Whitlock.  Take a peek...


I started with Lori's Easter Basket cut file, I love this file because it goes together so easily and I could show off both sides of this fun paper from Doodlebug's Hello Sunshine collection.  I then used the new EOS Lip Balm Bunny file to cut this cutie from Doodlebug's Petite Prints papers.



Lori's EOS holders are so cute and perfect for party favors and fun little gifts!  That's it for me today.  Thanks for stopping by!

Doodlebug Design: Sunkissed Layout

Hi Everyone!  Today I have a layout featuring Doodlebug's BRAND NEW Sunkissed Collection!!  I fell in love with this collection the second I saw it!  It's perfect for summer & vacation projects.  It definitely made me long for warmer weather especially after a record breaking winter here in the Boston area!  Take a peek at my layout, this is the sunset over the Florida Keys... {sigh}

 
We took a fun sunset cruise from our hotel on Duck Key...it was beautiful! I thought the colors in the Sunkissed collection were perfect for this photo!  I printed the large format photo using the new Cannon Pixma that I won from My Craft Channel!
 
I'm longing to wear flip flops!!  These cuties were irresistible.  I embellished them with some Tangerine Glitter Sprinkles.
 
 
Finally, I die-cut a few fish using the Sunkissed papers, some matching Sprinkles Vellum and the Fish Set dies from Echo Park.  To complete them I added some Beetle Sprinkles for eyes.  That is it for me today!  Make sure to stop by the blog all this week and next to see more Sunkissed inspiration from the Design Team!  Thanks for stopping by!
