Doodlebug Design | Christmas Town Advent Calendar

The holidays are upon us!  I was so excited to see the new  Doodlebug Design Christmas Town Collection... the little characters and icons are too cute! I thought they would be adorable as part of an Advent Calendar... so I decided to make one!   I worked with my Silhouette Model Maker Software and designed my first SVG file!  I work for Lori Whitlock so she helped me to fine-tune the details.  I'm so happy with the results, and it's even cuter using the new Christmas Town Collection!  Take a peek...


For the tree base and star I used some new Dot-Stripe Petite Prints in Grasshopper and Lemon.  I added the little pockets using some of my favorite patterned papers from the Christmas Town collection including the Festive Flurry, Christmas Cookies, Snow Much Fun, Christmas Jammies, Berry Christmas, and Merry Hearts.  I then decorated each pocket using the Icon Stickers Sheet, Mini Icons, Baby Hearts Shape Sprinkles, Holly Berries Shape Sprinkles, and Festive Flurry Shape Sprinkles.  Here are some close-ups of the pockets...







It's going to be so fun to countdown with this sweet {literally lol} calendar! The tree file is available in the Lori Whitlock SVG Shop and will be available in the Silhouette Store Soon!   Be sure to stop by the Doodlebug Design Blog all week for more Christmas Town Inspiration from the Design Team!  That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!

Lori Whitlock | Turkey Tag Bag

Hi Everyone!  I can't believe it is already November, this year has flown by!  Halloween is gone and now we're headed into the Thanksgiving season!  I always love Thanksgiving, it's one holiday that truly feels like it's all about getting together with the ones you love, and sharing some time (and turkey of course!)  This year, I'm not cooking so I thought it would be nice to bring a little something to my host.  Lori's new Tag Bags are the perfect wrapping for a little something special!  I made the Tag Bag Turkey (SVG, Silhouette).   Take a peek...


How cute is that turkey??  I made my bag using papers from Doodlebug Design.  These bags are great because you can cut 2 of them from one piece of 12x12 paper, so they're easy to mass produce!  You could even use them as place cards!  Lori has a great assembly tutorial on her YouTube Channel here.  Be sure to check out all of the Tag Bag designs here!  That's it for me today thanks for stopping by to peek!

Doodlebug Design | Pumpkin Party Cut Files

Not long ago, my niece sent me this fabulous picture of my great-niece and great-niece-pup.  As soon as I saw it, I knew I was going to have to scrap it!  When I saw the new Pumpkin Party Cut files which are available in the Lori Whitlock SVG Shop and the Silhouette Store I was immediately inspired!  Take a peek...


That face!!!  Such personality!  I wanted the picture to be the focus so I enlarged it to be 9.5" x 9.5".  I backed it with some new Dot-Stripe Petite Prints in Mandarin and Lilac, and then with the Party Plaid Paper from the Pumpkin Party Collection.  I cut the Pumpkin Party - Pumpkins in a few different sizes from some Dot-Stripe and Floral-Graph Petite Prints in Mandarin.     Here's a hint to make the pumpkins look different... In addition to resizing them I also used the flip horizontally function in Silhouette to make the same file slightly different.


I also added the Web and spider from the Pumpkin Party Web Lantern file to the corner of my layout using some Beetle Black Dot Stripe Petite Prints.  I made the spider 3D by cutting two of the spiders, then cutting one so that it was just the body.  I then layered them with some foam tape between the layers for dimension.  The eyes are from the Eerie Eyes Shaped Sprinkles and the speech bubble is from the Pumpkin Party Chit Chats.


I finished off my layout with my title which was made from Tangerine Abigail and Teensy Type Alpha Stickers.  I love mixing fonts!  Have you created a project using the Pumpkin Party Collection or Cut Files?  Be sure to tag Doodlebug Design on Social Media so that we can see your creations!  That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!

Lawn Fawnatics | Challenge 39 Bling it Out

Hi Everyone!  I was able to play along with the current challenge over at Lawn Fawnatics... Bling it Out!  The challenge was to add some sparkle to your project.  I had to make a 30th Anniversary card for some friends so I decided to make a box card for them (inspired by this card by Chari Moss for Lawn Fawn)  take a peek...


I used a number of Lawn Fawn stamps and dies for this card including the Scalloped Box Card Pop Up Dies, Happy Happy Happy, Party Balloons, and Louie's ABCs & 123s.  I used papers from the following Lawn Fawn Collections:   Perfectly Plaid Fall, Polka Dot Mon Amie, Perfect Plaid Chill and Knit Picky Fall.  For my bling, I added sequins to the balloons and 30 and I also used my Nuvo Glitter Gloss brush pen to add some sparkle to the 30 and hearts.  The happy couple loved the card!

That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!

Doodlebug Design | Pumpkin Party Treat Box

I just love Halloween... it's such a fun time, and there is candy!! ( I have no will power...)  And what better way to package up a sweet treat than with some Pumpkin Party goodies!  I made this cute little house to hold some treats for a friend, take a peek...


I started with this file from Lori Whitlock for the house and tree shapes.  I constructed the house using the Midnight Masquerade and Party Plaid Papers.  I added some Dot-Stripe Petite Prints in Beetle BlackLilac and Citrus for the Tree, Roof and Trim.


Now for the fun part!  I embellished the house with goodies from the Icons Sticker Sheet and the Odds & Ends!  Here are some close-ups...


I just love that kitty!!!!


As a final touch I added one of the Silly Spiders Shaped Sprinkles to the chimney!


The bottom of the box opens up to hold some sweet treats!


Stop by the Doodlebug Design blog all of this week for more Pumpkin Party inspiration!  That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!
