Bella Blvd: Wish Big Shaped Cards

One of the big benefits of working and designing for Lori Whitlock is that I get to play with all the files!  Recently, Bella Blvd. started offering their Wish Big SVG files through Lori's shop, and they are just the cutest!  I decided to make some shaped cards using the files and the Wish Big Paper Collection... take a peek...

My first card is the adorable little Wish Big-Snail.  I love how he carries the little cupcake!  I added the celebrate sticker from the Sticky Mix Cardstock Stickers.  I also added a matte enamel shape for his eye.

Next I made a card using the Wish Big - Alligator file.  I thought this would make a really cute tag too! 

For my last card I used the sweet Wish Big Dinosaur File.  I loved the balloon tied to his tail!  I added the party time sticker and some enamel dots to complete him! 

There are so many more files in the whole collection, I can't wait to play with some more!  That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!

Doodlebug Design | Simply Spring Stamps

I was so excited when Doodlebug decided to create stamps of their collections!  I love to stamp and color and being able to do this with Doodlebug critters and images.... heaven!  As soon as I got the stamps, I opened them and got to work... who needs clean clothes and dinner... that can all wait!  I made this cute little card using the Simply Spring Oh Boy and Flower Girl sets.

How cute is that little bee from the Oh Boy Set??!!  I added him to a background that I lightly inked along with a few clouds (the clouds are from the Lots O' Luck Rainbows and Unicorns set).  I then made a little meadow of flowers using the individual flower stamps from the Flower Girl Set.  I set them on some papers from the Simply Spring 6x6 pad.  The hello sentiment is from the Oh Boy Set.

Both sets include so many adorable images,  my family may need to do their own laundry and cooking until I can get through them all!  Have you used the new Doodlebug Stamp Sets in any projects?  Make sure to post them and tag Doodlebug Design on Facebook and Instagram, we would love to see what you've made!  That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!

Doodlebug Design | Simply Spring Shadow Box Cards

It's been a long winter here in the New England... I'm more than ready for some spring and good weather!  So you can imagine how excited I was to get my Doodlebug box full of then new Simply Spring Collection.  I love every single thing about this collection!  The colors, the patterns, the embellishments... I've said it before and I'll say it again, only Doodlebug can make a bug that is cute!  I immediately ran into my craft room and started playing! I created these fun Shadow Box cards...

I love Shadow Box Cards, and the Odds & Ends Pieces from the Simply Spring Collection made it so easy to create fun little scenes.  I started with the cute little blue birds, and the punny Happy Birdie to You sentiment from the Chit Chat pieces.  How cute is that little bumble bee from the Little Critters Shaped Sprinkles??

My next card features the cute little frog from the Odds & Ends, and the Hoppy Birthday Sentiment.  For my little scene I added a couple of Doodlebug cut files, the Fox Tails are from the On The Farm Cut File Collection and the Lily Pad is from the Pot O' Gold Cut Files.  To finish it off I added the cute little dragon fly from the Little Critters Sprinkles.

For my last card I used a lot of the flowers from the Odds & Ends to make a little "garden" for the little bumblebees to fly around.  I also added a couple of the cute little flower shaped sprinkles from the May Flowers Shaped Sprinkles.

I have so many more ideas for this fun collection, I may have to stock up on more!!  Have you made anything using the Simply Spring Collection?  Be sure to tag Doodlebug Design on Social media, we would love to see your creations!  That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!

Lawn Fawnatics Challenge 48 | Inspired by a Song

I was lucky enough to spend my weekend at the Crop on the Cape!  I actually got projects done and things accomplished!  Usually for me there is more chatting than scrapping!  One of the things I was able to complete is the latest Lawn Fawnatics Challenge... Inspired by a Book, Movie or Song.  As soon as I saw the challenge, all I could think about is the song Wild Thing by the Troggs, and the cute little jungle critters from the Wild for You Stamp Set.  I came up with this layered card...

I also used some leaves and trees from the Critters Down Under and Critters in the Jungle sets.  The papers are from the new Spring Fling 6x6 pad.  I will now proceed to have this song stuck in my head for the next week!  That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!

Doodlebug Design | Lots O' Luck Travelers Notebook Scrapbooking

My daughter is currently studying abroad in Scotland.  She's been travelling with friends, seeing so much!  She recently flew over to Ireland to visit friends who are studying there, which was very conveniently timed for me... since I had the brand new Lot's O' Luck Collection to scrap with!  Being a good daughter, of course she sent me pictures.  I decided to use them in my 52 Favorites Daily Doodles Scrapbook!  

I used pictures of her on the coast of Howth, Ireland for my first layout.  I love the touches of gold in the Lot's O' Luck Collection!  They add the perfect bit of sparkle.   I added some Gold Abigail letters and gold striped paper from the Hello 6x6 Pad to complete the look.

My next layout features pictures that my daughter SnapChatted to me.  I love their playful feel!  I used some of the black elements from Lot's O'Luck including the Odds & Ends Arrow and the scalloped frills sticker from the This and That Stickers.  I also used some Beetle Black Skinny Type Alphas.  I love the Shaped Sprinkles too.. it's a fun way to add some dimension without being too thick for my book!  Have you played with Lot's O' Luck, or your Daily Doodles Travel Planner?  Make sure to tag Doodlebug Design on Facebook (@doodlebug design) and Instagram (@doodlebugdesign).  We would love to see your creations!  That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!
