Doodlebug Design | So Much Pun Cut File Cards

I was so excited to see Doodlebug's new So Much Pun Cut Files!  This has to be one of the cutest, most versatile collections I've ever seen... so many fun icons, it was hard to narrow my selections to just a few for this post!  I did however and here a few cards I created using this ADORABLE collection!

As you can see I was a little bit all over the place with themes... that's the beauty of this collection, there are SO MANY uses!  My first card used the So Much Pun Stove and Cinnamon Roll files along with some new Dot-Stripe Petite Prints.  I altered the stove a bit so that the oven door opened and inside was a the bun!  I thought this would be so cute for a newly expectant mom!  Here are some close-ups...

For finishing touches I added one of the Chit Chat Pieces for my sentiment and some Cupcake Glitter Sprinkles for the cheeks!
My next card uses the Thyme plant from the So Much Plant 1 cut file and more Dot Stripe and Floral Graph Petite Prints from the 6x6 pads.

I added some extra leaves to the plant to give it some dimension and the Thyme to Celebrate sentiment is from the Chit Chat Pieces.  The Happy Birthday sticker is from the Multicolor Happy Birthday Doodles Cardstock Stickers.
My third card is indeed a Christmas themed card.  It went against my normal stance on holiday decorations before their time...but I couldn't resist.  I got the idea from the So Much Pun Double Sided Cardstock which lists out all of the hilarious puns for each of the icons.  Take a peek...

First of all... how stinking cute is that llama cut file??  I used an embossing folder from Sizzix to give him a more fluffy look and added the wreath from the Milk and Cookies Window Wreath cut file.  I created the printed sentiment using one of the Bubble Sayings Bubbles from the Booville Cut Files.  He's put together using more new Petite Prints and the wreath is decorated with some Glitter Sprinkles.  I think he's just fabulous!

Doodlebug Design: Petite Prints Desk Calendar

One of my all time favorite Doodlebug product lines is the Petite Prints! The Gingham Linen Petite Prints have always been a staple in my projects, so when the new Floral-Graph and Dot-Stripe Petite Prints were released, I was ecstatic!   I love using them as backgrounds and especially love them when working with the Doodlebug Cut files!   Each year I love to put together a calendar for my craft room, and no surprise, it is usually made up from Doodlebug goodies!  I got a head start on next year's calendar using the new Petite Prints and a number of Doodlebug cut files... take a peek...

This cute little calendar can sit on my table, and I love how easily it is to flip around and find a date!  Making it was really easy.  I started with 6 pieces of white cardstock each cut to 9.5" x 6".  Each piece was then scored halfway at 4.75".  To the inside of each piece of card stock , I added 2  pieces of Petite Prints that measured 4.25" x 5.5".  To make it into the star shape, I folded the cardstock pieces in half (with the petite prints on the inside) stacked them up, gluing them together to make a book-like form.  I then decorated the front cover with the year.  To make it into the Star, open it up so all of the pages fan out and clip the ends together with a couple of cute clips!

Now for the fun part, decorating each month!  I started with a print and cut calendar file from Lori Whitlock (SVG, Silhouette).  I un-grouped the file and resized it to fit into a 2.625" x 3.75" rectangle.  I then chose a fun Doodlebug Cut file for each month, which were all pieced together using the 6x6 Dot-Stripe Petite Print Pad.  Here are close ups of the pages...

Files Used: 
Snowman 2 - Frosty Friends (SVG, Silhouette
Candy - Cream & Sugar (SVG)

Lori Whitlock: State Heart Pillow

Happy Monday everyone,  I have a fun project to share with you today!  I created this pillow for my niece who moved to Maine with her cute little family.  I used Lori's State Heart Dingbats Font (SVG, Silhouette), take a peek...

Cutting fabric with your Silhouette or Cricut is easier than you think!  For my project I started with Terial Magic Fabric Stabilizer. I first saturated the fabric I wanted to cut with Terial Magic, hung it until it was damp dry (about 15 minutes.) and then ironed the fabric.  Once ironed, the fabric is very stiff and almost feels like paper.   I placed the fabric on a very sticky mat and sent it to cut using the fabric cut settings on my Silhouette.  (make sure you are using a newer blade or fabric blade to cut ) Once cut, I machine stitched it to my pillow cover.   You could also use an iron on fabric stabilizer. For fabrics, I used Doodlebug's Kisses fabrics for Riley Blake.   My niece loved the pillow and it looked really cute in her living room!  That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!

Doodlebug Design: More So Much Pun Cards

There are so many puns in the So Much Pun Collection, it's perfect for a pun-fanatic like me!  The only problem I have is choosing which ones to use next!  I finally narrowed down my selection to make these "punny" cards!

Every time I see the sweet little faces on the pill bottle and pills I laugh.  I decided to add them all along with the tissue box from the Odds & Ends into a doctor bog box card.  Who wouldn't "pill" better looking at these cute faces!  The bag was assembled using some of the new Dot Stripe Petite Prints.

I fell in love with all of the adorable dinosaurs in the Odds & Ends and knew I wanted to use a few of them on a card.  I decided to make a little shadowbox so that I could feature a bunch!  I used the Palm Tree side of the T-Riffic Cardstock and the Kraft Dot-Stripe Petite Prints for the box and then added a few of the dinosaurs to the various layers.  As always, there was the perfectly punny sentiment in the Chit Chat Pieces.

Like the pills, the faces on the pieces of pop corn make me smile!  I made a fun slider card where one of the cute little popcorn pieces pops up out of the popcorn container!  I love the Check side of the Fantas-Taco Cardstock and the Order pad side of the Perfect Combo Cardstock!  I mixed them with the Ladybug and Lily White Floral-Graph Petite Prints to make some fun layers!

Make sure to stop by the Doodlebug Design blog all this week for more So Much Pun Inspiration!  That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!
