Doodlebug Design: Odds & Ends Challenge

Hi Everyone!  It's today I'm up on the Doodlebug Blog with my Odds & Ends Challenge project.  I will admit, it really wasn't much of a challenge to find a way to make these adorable embellishments the focus of a project!  They are just so cute, they really do all the work for you!  I decided to make a few (well OK, it turned into 12) cards using some Odds & Ends and some punny sentiments...  take a peek...


I really had to stop myself from making more.  I combined the Odds & Ends from the At the Zoo, Fairy Tales, Cream & Sugar, Kitten Smitten and Fun in the Sun Collections, with some Gingham Linen Petite Prints to make the cards!  The cards are a simple A2 size and the white mat was cut using Lawn Fawn's Large Cross Stitched Rectangle Dies.   The sentiments, well, I can't resist a good pun!

Here are some close-ups of the cards...












These went together really quickly.    I love that I now have a bunch of cards to send out when needed!  Be sure to stop by the Doodlebug Blog for more Odds & Ends inspiration from the design team!  That's it for me today, thank you for stopping by to peek!

Doodlebug Design: July PageMaps Sketch

Hi Everyone!  Today I have a layout I created for the Doodlebug Design/PageMaps Sketch Challenge Layout! Members of the Doodlebug Design Team were all given great sketches to play with from the July PageMaps release.   I received this fabulous sketch from Becky Fleck...


I had a lot of fun with this sketch.  I found this picture of my daughter and friends in front of their freshman dorm, and couldn't resist using some At the Zoo papers and embellishments to scrap it!  Take a peek...


I just adore the little critters in this collection.  I used a whole bunch of them from the Icons Sticker Sheets and the word stickers from the This and That Sticker Sheet are always a favorite!



I finished it all off with a fun mixed alpha title using some Teensy Type Letters and the "wild" stickers from the At the Zoo Icons Stickers..  Be sure to check the Doodlebug Blog  for more PageMaps Inspiration from the last 2 weeks!  That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!

Doodlebug Design: Yankee Doodle Project

Hi Everyone!   I always love the Doodlebug Design patriotic collections and Yankee Doodle does not disappoint!  As soon as I saw it, I knew what I was going to make... take a peek...



These 3-D Letters are from Lori Whitlock's SVG Shop.  I used some of the fun patterned papers to form the base of the letters and the decorative panels.  I then embellished them using some of the Odds & Ends and Shaped Sprinkles.  Here are some close-ups...


My favorite parts of the Yankee Doodle Collection are the silver accents... they add just the right touch of shine!  



The new Yankee Doodle Patriotic Posies Shaped Sprinkes are just too cute!  


And the acetate Odds & Ends are the perfect embellishments!  I just loved the fire works!  This collection is perfect for the 4th of July projects, military projects and even everyday celebrations!   Stop by the Doodlebug Design blog  for more Yankee Doodle Inspiration!  That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!

Lori Whitlock: Get Well Soon Card

Hi Everyone! Today I have one of the new Get Well Cards from Lori Whitlock,  the Get Well Bandaid Card (available here in the Silhouette Store). I just love the simplicity of this card, it's so cute and colorful!   Take a peek...


I used some fun Doodlebug Design Gingham Linen Petite Prints for this card.  To add a little dimension, I used some foam tape between the layers of the bandaids and also beneath the bandaids themselves. It's just such a cute design, who wouldn't feel better upon receiving this?


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

Saba

Hi Everyone!  I actually did a layout for fun recently... not that I don't have fun with my design team projects, but once in a while it's nice to do a layout... just because!  My husband and I recently took a vacation to a very small island in the Caribbean called Saba to visit one of my best scrappy friends Danielle!  She recently moved to the island and is now living the life!  We had such a fabulous time there, it's beautiful!  These photos are from the day we spent at Cove Bay! 


Of course I had to use some Fun in the Sun collection from Doodlebug Design... it is the perfect collection for these pictures!  Here are some close-ups...



We had such a great time, I can't wait to go back!  That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!
