Doodlebug Design | Happy Haunting Box Cards

I have always loved Halloween... the costumes, the decorations... and let's face it... the candy!  Doodlebug's Halloween Collections have always been among my favorites... and Happy Haunting does not disappoint!  As soon as I saw all the fun patterns and icons, I knew I wanted to make some box cards with scenes featuring all the cute characters!  Take a peek...


One of my favorite things in Happy Haunting is the new Bits & Pieces Pack.  Not only does it have some fun tabs and tags, but it also has a lot of spooky trees and tombstones.  I made these the focus of my first card.  I created a creepy cemetery and of course I could not resist the skeleton hand from the Odds & Ends pack!  I finished it off with a cute owl from the Icon Minis.


My next card features my favorite icon... the little black kitty from the Odds & Ends Pack.  He's hanging out in the pumpkin patch.  There are so many cute jack-o-lanterns in the Odds & Ends pack it was hard to choose!


My last card features on of the many haunted houses in the Odds & Ends pack along with a cute ghost and a spooky tree from the Bits & Pieces.  The acetate fence is from the Odds & Ends pack.  There's a bunch of acetate pieces, they are fun to use!

Doodlebug Design | Fun at the Park Autograph Book

We have been to Disney a good number of times, and each time we still feel the magic!  When my daughter was about 6, she made it her mission to see all of the characters around the park, and get their autographs.  It was adorable.  So when I saw the Fun at the Park Collection I immediately thought to make an autograph book.  Take a peek...


I love the little heart shape in the Odds & Ends and decided to model my autograph book after that.  I used a heart shape in my Silhouette, welded on a little tab for my binding and decorated the front with Petite Prints and the hearts side of the Tea-riffic Time Cardstock.  I even wrapped some mini dots paper around a marker to bring along for signings!


Inside each spread I have a page for a photo (because we must get photos with each character as well!!) and a place for each character to sign.  I made little eared balloon pieces for a project a few years ago (see here) and I thought it would be cute to make them into  "sign here pieces" with a little doodle twine tail.  I also framed all of the autograph spots with some coordinating paper frills.  Here are some more views of the inside pages...



The Character Autograph ticket from the Chit Chat pieces is just perfect!



I just love all the cute balloons and fireworks in the Bits & Pieces Pack!  And the shaped sprinkles are so fun to spread around.



My now 23 year old daughter has now volunteered to go back and get this book filled with more autographs if I would only send her there!  We just might have to make another family trip!

Doodlebug Design | Cute & Crafty Shaped Cards

The Cute & Crafty Collection is absolutely one of my all-time favorites!  The little icons all just make me happy!  I decided that they would make some super-cute shaped cards.  The only problem... which ones should I choose?  It was not an easy decision, but I was able to pick just a few!  Take a peek...


I loved the rainbow stack of pencils on the little squares side of the Perfectly Plaid cardstock.  I decided to create my own using the Cute & Crafty Pencil & Eraser SVG.  I made multiples of the pencil in a rainbow of coordinating Petite Prints.  Their little faces just make me happy!  I stacked them up and added some mini heart rainbow sprinkles and a sentiment from the This & That Sticker Sheet.



For my next card I chose to use the Cute & Crafty Bobbins SVG.  Again I used the Coordinating Petite Prints Pack to piece it together and finished it off with another sentiment from the This & That Sticker Sheet. 


I love the punny sentiment!


For my last card I used the Cute & Crafty Camera SVG.  I thought it would be fun to make the camera lens a shaker.  I cut 10 circles from chipboard, stacked them up then added some Doodlebug Sequins and a piece of acetate.  To finish him off, I added a smile sticker from the Chit Chat pieces.



I have a tutorial on my blog here showing how to create shaped cards using Silhouette and a cut file here.  You could also create them in Cricut in a similar manner using the Offset and weld functions.

Doodlebug Design | Cute & Crafty Slimline Cards

I love making slimline cards.  The different shape and size give you so much more space to be creative!  I haven't made any in a while and thought the Cute & Crafty Collection would be perfect for a few new ones!  Take a peek...

My first card uses the fun flowers from the Bits & pieces pack. I scattered the flowers along a frame, popping them up for a bit of dimension.


For my sentiment, I used the hello in the All Occasion Doodle Cuts.  


For my next card I used some of the fun icons from the Odds & Ends and Icon Stickers.  I added them to a few die cut frames so it looked like they were peeking out.  The sentiment is from the Chit Chat Pieces.


I just love those little Copic Markers!!


For my last card I used some of the adorable little colored pencils from the Odds & Ends and stitched some drawing lines using some embroidery thread.


The top and bottom lines were 'free-style" stitched.  For the hello, I used the negative of the hello cut out from my first card as a template.


Now I have a few "just because" cards on hand... which is always a good thing!  You never know when a friend needs a little hello.  Have you made any projects using Cute & Crafty?  Be sure to tag Doodlebug Design on Facebook & Instagram.  We love to see your creations!  That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!

Doodlebug Design | Cute & Crafty Notebook Mini Album

I have fallen deeply and madly in love with all of the adorable icons in the Cute & Crafty Collection.  They are just so sweet!  One of my favorites is the little notebook... that cute smile is just fabulous! I decided to make a mini book using it as my inspiration.  Take a peek... 


I started with the Cute & Crafty Notebook SVG file, and edited it to take out the spirals so I could add my own using my binding tool.  Once I had the cover, I set to filling my book. For my pages, I used the Cute & Crafty Coordinating Petite prints pack.  If you're not familiar, these packs are full of fun tone on tone prints that work perfectly with the collection.   


I wanted to make this a more "all purpose" mini, where my previous 2 books were "scrapbooking" focused.  The Bits & Pieces were the perfect solution. I just love all the pieces in this pack!  Lots of flowers, tabs, labels.  So much to work with!  I also used some of the cut-aparts from the Happy Thoughts Cardstock, Chit Chat pieces and Odds & Ends.


I could not resist using some of the buttons from the Odds & Ends Pack... they just make me smile!  Also the big words from the Chit Chat pack are a fun way to embellish a page.





I really had fun putting this one together!  Have you created any projects using Cute & Crafty?  Be sure to tag Doodlebug Design on Facebook & Instagram.  We always love to see what you create.  That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!

Doodlebug Design | Cute & Crafty Caddie Mini Album

I love all sorts of mini albums.  Traditional and non-traditional, so when I saw the adorable Craft Caddie from the Cute & Crafty cut files  I started thinking that a 3D caddie would make an adorable mini!  I set to work making an actual tote, and filled it with "cards" that are actually scrapbook pages!  Take a peek...


It's along the idea of a "recipe box" type album... a tote which holds the different pages.  I added some of the fun tools from the Odds & Ends to the tops of the pages so they stick up like an actual tool tote!  Of course, my tool tote is not nearly this neat or this cute!




The base of the box uses the Cute & Crafty Craft Caddie SVG.  I sandwiched a couple of small boxes between the layers to hold the pages.  I added the scissors, craft blade and rub-on tool from the Odds & Ends to the side pockets.  All that was left was to create some pages!



Cute & Crafty has so many fun embellishments, it's hard to decide which ones to use!  I started with these pages, but there is definitely room for more! 


I can't wait for my next in person crop!  I plan on taking LOTS of photos with friends to fill this little tote.  Have you made any projects using the Cute & Crafty Collection?  Be sure to tag @doodlebugdesign on Facebook & Instagram.  We LOVE to see your creations!  That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek.
