Doodlebug Design: Happy Go Lucky Layout

Hi Everyone!  Today I have  a layout featuring Doodlebug's new Happy Go Lucky Collection.  I was so excited to see a St. Patrick's Day collection, you wouldn't know it from my married name (Skou), but I come from a long line of Kelley's, Barrett's, Doyle's, McDonough's.... so this is right up my alley!  Take a peek at my layout...
I love this silly group selfie of my family...I actually used this for my Christmas card picture this year.  It was perfect for my theme...So Lucky to Have Eachother.

I LOVE the new Lucky Doodlepop...I can't resist anything glittery!  And don't get me started on the Rainbow Stripe Washi!  I added a little shaker to the layout to bring more of the rainbow colors into my project.

The little smiling shamrocks from the Icon Stickers sheet were irresistible as well!  Well that's it for me today...make sure to stop by the Doodlebug Design Blog for more Design Team inspiration! Thanks for stopping by!

Lori Whitlock: EOS Lip Balm Holders

Hi Everyone!  I'm up on the Lori Whitlock Blog today with some really cute gifts...EOS Lip Balm holders!  EOS is all the rage around here...the kids love them!  When I saw these holders in Lori's Shop, I couldn't resist!
There are eight different designs in Lori's SVG Shop.  You can also get them in the Silhouette Store here.  I chose the butterfly, the cupcake and the flower.  I created them using some Doodlebug Design LoveBugs collection.  They were really easy to put together, and I added some stickers and Sprinkles to embellish!  Here are some close ups....

I'm pretty sure the girls will love them!  That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by!

You should have arrived here from Mendi's Blog  If you're starting here, be sure to head over Lori's site to start from the beginning.  You can also find out how you can get this fun freebie !

I created this fun Valentine's Card using the new  Valentine Vinyl Set in Lori's SVG Shop (or in the Silhouette Store here.)  I re-sized it to fit an A2 sized card, and cut it from some Doodlebug Lovebugs paper.  I then layered over some card stock to give it dimension.
I added the "love you" which can be found in the Handwritten Title Set in Lori's SVG shop (Love You Handwritten Phrase in the Silhouette Store) and popped up the heart piece and added a Heart Shaped Sprinkle also from Doodlebug.  It went together really quickly and I love how it turned out!

Lori Whitlock: Camera Mini Album

Hi everyone!  I have my first official project up on the Lori Whitlock blog today... a tutorial showing how to create an adorable mini album using Lori's Shaker Camera Embellishment cut files.  I created this album for my sweet cousin who just had her first baby.  She hasn't seen it yet, but it's on the way to her... so this may be a spoiler!

 I used Lori's Perfect Type Font to add the baby's name to the cover of the album and also to print out the label on the inside cover.  Finally I used the 7 Shapes Labels to add the date and a place for her to journal on each picture.  Take a peek at the inside pages....


I included some extra pages and labels for the happy couple to keep adding to their album!

For the full tutorial, make sure to stop by the Lori Whitlock Blog!!!! That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by!
