Doodlebug Design: Sugar Shoppe Projects

Hi Everyone! Today I have two fun projects I created using Doodlebug's new Sugar Shoppe Collection.  Sugar Shoppe definitely goes on the books as one of my all time favorite collections!  I just adore the combination of colors!  For my first project, I created a layout featuring my daughter blowing out her birthday candles last summer.

 I loved all of the papers, I wanted to showcase them all!  I decided that a fun layered look would work!  And of course I couldn't pass up using the fun garland!
There are some great stickers with Sugar Shoppe included this cake and balloon!  I used some Bumblebee twine to hand stitch the balloon string.
I also used some of the Sugar Shoppe Pixies to embellish my layout.  They were the perfect addition!
For my second project, I designed this fun shaped birthday card.  We've had a whole slew of Sweet 16 birthday parties this year!  Everything from a simple dinner out with a couple of friends to full scale semi formal dress up parties!  I'm just glad I have until the summer to come up with something, and am thankful that my daughter is thinking more along the lines of a PJ-clad, Just Dance-off kind of party!

I created the card in 3 layers to show off more of the fun papers from the collection!  I added more of the balloon stickers from the Icon Stickers and tied them together with some Doodlebug twine!
Now for something fun!  I'd love to share the cut file I created to make this card!  Head on over to the Doodlebug Blog to download(here)  I hope you enjoy it!  That's all for me today...make sure to keep checking the Doodlebug Blog for design team inspiration, and your chance to win this great collection!
