Doodlebug Designs: Chevron Sugar Coated Cardstock

Hi Everyone, I'm up on the Doodlebug Design blog today with a fun layout featuring Chevron Sugar Coated Cardstock.  I love the glittery effect it adds to a project!  Here's what I came up with:

 
 This quote has always been a favorite, and worked perfectly with the sparkle factor in the Chevron Sugar Coated Cardstock ... and this silly selfie of my daughter.  I used a number of thin dies from Sizzix and MFT and my Big Shot to cut hearts from the cardstock.  I love how the colors coordinate perfectly with the Sugar Shoppe papers!
 
 
For my title, I couldn't resist mixing and matching Doodlebug Alphas and I HAD to use the Bubblegum Shin-Dig Sugar Coated Alphas! 
 
To complete my layout, I added some Doodlebug Sequins and stitched with some silver thread for a little more bling!  That's it for me today.  Thanks for stopping by.

Right at Home Scrapbooking: July Mood Board

Hi Everyone...just a quick post to share the layout I created using the July Mood Board from Right at Home Scrapbooking as inspiration.  The colors are perfect for summery layouts!  Take a peek at the Mood Board:
and here's my layout:
 
 
I love these pictures of my daughter and her friend in "London" at Epcot last summer.  They fell in love with the telephone booth!  I got Pink Paislee's Pen Pals collection to work with...  the color combos are great and the ephemera pack is full of goodies!  I used one of the tags from the pack as a backdrop for my title. The little Hello clip is from Maya Road.

 


And of course I had to use more of the Ephemera pack to create clusters of embellies!!  That's it for today, I'll be back soon with a Doodlebug project and more Mood Board Inspiration from Right at Home!  Thanks for stopping by!

A Summer Lawn Fawn Mini

Hi Everyone!  I wanted to share a fun mini album I created to showcase some pictures from my upcoming vacation!  We're heading to the Florida Keys later this summer and I wanted to have something ready to go to hold all the pictures I plan on taking!!  Take a peek!

 
I used mostly Lawn Fawn goodies, including the Life is Good stamps and dies and some Let's Polka papers.  I thought the colors were perfect for my tropical vacation!
 
 
The camera album shape was adapted from a Lori Whitlock shaker cut file found in the Silhouette store here.  The cloud is made from some Doodlebug Sprinkles vellum and the sequins are also from Doodlebug.  I'm not usually a stamper...but the Life is good stamps are just too cute!

 
For my inside pages, I used the Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Journaling Card.  I kept them simple, just adding some stamped images and die cuts to each page.  I used some 4x6 album sleeves from We R to hold them. 





 
I know I'll end up adding more pages as I go along, but the good thing is it's easy to do!  That's it for me today...I have lots of goodies in the works...will be updating again soon!!!  Thanks for stopping by!

Right at Home Scrapbooking: It's a Plan Class 3rd Layout

Just a quick post today to showcase the third layout I created for the It's a Plan class at Right at Home Scrapbooking.  Take a Peek:
 

The papers are from My Mind's Eye Cut and Paste Charm collection.  I thought they were perfect for this picture of my husband on vacation.  Didn't think I was going to be able to get him to come back home!  The title was cut from a Kerri Bradford file.  That's it for today...I'll be back with some Doodlebug & Right at Home Projects later in the week!

Doodlebug Design: Pocket Life using Treat Bags

Hi Everyone,I have a fun Pocket Life layout using some Doodlebug Treat Bags.  I love Doodlebug's Treat Bags...they're so fun and colorful!  And like all Doodlebug products, they coordinate beautifully with a number of collections!   I chose to work with the Limeade Chevron & Swimming Pool Gingham bags.  They're a perfect match for Doodlebug's Day to Day collection.  Here's my PL spread featuring some silly photo booth pictures my daughter and her friends took at their Sophomore Ring Dance.
 
 
I love all the fun stickers from the Day to Day collection!  I decided to make some photo booth "props" using the stickers and some of the pixies from the collection.
 
 
  Here's a peek at more of my cards...




It's sad that they're so shy, right?  My new favorite thing is shakers...I created a fun shaker using a cut out frame from the Doodlebug Simply Put cards, some vellum and some Doodlebug Sequins.


 For my final card, I used the Limeade Chevron Treat bag as a tag holder.  I listed the "cast of characters" on the tag.  The bag is perfect for hidden journaling!

 
That's it for me today, I'll be back tomorrow with a layout I created for Right at Home Scrapbooking!  Thanks for stopping by!

The Twinery: June Guest Designer Flag Card

Hi Everyone, I'm back today with my last Guest Design Post at The Twinery!  It's hard to believe that the Fourth of July is next week!  I decided to put together a fun card to celebrate.  Take a peek:
 

 
I started out with a Ladybug Paisley card base from Doodlebug Designs and some papers from Doodlebug's Patriotic Parade Collection.   To create my flag design, I first drew a grid on the back of my white paper.  Next, I punched the stitching holes with my paper piercer.  Then using Maraschino & Denim Solid Twines, I cross-stitched the flag pattern.


Here's a close up of the stitching.  I added some Doodlebug Lily White Sequins for the stars on the flag.  That's it for me today!  It's been so nice being back at The Twinery this month!  I'll be back soon with some more projects!
