Doodlebug Design: Spring Garden

Hi Everyone!  Today I have a layout using the bright and cheery new Spring Garden Collection from Doodlebug Design!  I really love EVERYTHING about this collection.  I used it to scrap these fun pictures of my daughter from a recent trip to Key West... take a peek...

I think my most favorite paper is the Garden Plaid paper... the colors are fabulous!  I'm also in love with the new Ladybugs Shape Sprinkles ... they are too cute!  Here are some close-ups... 
I used almost all of the flowers from the Garden Flower Craft Kit, they are so fun to mix and match!  And of course, the word stickers from the This and That Cardstock Stickers are always a favorite!  That's it for me today, make sure to stop by the Doodlebug Blog all next week for more Spring Garden Inspiration!

My Boy

Hi Everyone, I just got back from a fun weekend of scrapping with friends at the 2016 Crop on the Cape!  This is just the most fun event, I think this might have been my 10th year going!  This year I also got to meet up with some of my Paper Issues Teammates... there may have been shenanigans...

Anyway, we also participated in Paper Issue's Spring Crop.  One of the challenges was called Must Love Dogs (or in my case, cats...).  This is the layout I put together for the challenge...
This is my boy Jax.  He loves to play peek-a-boo and attack the hands on the keyboard.  He's too cute!  I used the new Totally Rad collection from Cocoa Vanilla.  It's available in the Paper Issues Shop here.  It's mostly a "boy" themed line but I love the colors and patterns, and Jax IS a boy.... Here are some close-ups...

Totally Rad came with some awesome embellishments.  I had a fun time sprinkling them about!  Stop by the Paper Issues Store to pick up some Totally Rad for yourself, you'll be glad you did!  Use code KATHYS for a 20% discount on your whole order!  
That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!

Lori Whitlock: Easter Candy Huggers

Hi Everyone!  I'm up on the Lori Whitlock Blog today with some adorable Easter Candy Huggers!  I loved her Valentine's Huggers and was so excited when I saw these in the shop!

How cute are these??  I pieced them together using some Doodlebug Design Swiss Dot Petite Print Papers and Cardstock.  I used my Silhouette Sketch Pens to create the little tags.  Here are some close-ups...

These could also be made into cute place cards, by printing the names of your guests on the tag!  That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!

Doodlebug Designs: Bunnyville

Hi Everyone!  Today I have a fun layout I made using the ADORABLE new Bunnyville Collection from Doodlebug Design!  Take a peek...

 My daughter used to collect little chick stuffed animals, and was very excited when the Easter Bunny brought some to add to her collection.  Here she is with the whole flock!  Bunnyville had so many cute chickie stickers, it made embellishing this layout so easy!  I used chicks from the Chickies Mini Doodle Pops, the Bunnyville Icon Stickers, and the Bunny and Friends Craft Kit.  Here are some close-ups...

I used some Limeade Doodlebug Chippers for my title and finished it off with a cute little Chickie from the Easter Shaped Sprinkles!  That's it for me today, make sure to stop by the Doodlebug Blog each day this week and next for more Bunnyville inspiration!!  Thanks for stopping by to peek!
