Lori Whitlock | Cat & Dog Explosion Boxes

I got to play with some new files from Lori Whitlock this week.  She has a few new Explosion Boxes in her shop, and of course I had to make the Cat and Dog versions!  Take a peek...

The Explosion Box Cat  is my favorite of course... I pieced it together with some Chloe Collection from Bella Blvd.  The boxes have 4 pockets where you can add photos, notes or gift cards and the top of the house comes off , so you can add a little treat!

The whole box folds up with a lid!

Even though I'm a crazy cat lady, I had to do the dog version as well!  I pieced the Explosion Box Dog together with some Cooper Collection by Bella Blvd.

 Here it is all folded up.  These would make great gifts for your pet loving friends!  That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!

Doodlebug Design | Cat & Dog Present Box Cards

 There is not much that makes me happier than puppies and kitties!  So when I saw the new Hey Cupcake, and Party time Collections in the Lori Whitlock SVG Shop, I had to make some fun birthday cards!  Take a peek...

I think a puppy or kitty popping out of a present would absolutely make someone's day, don't you??

For the kitty card, I started with the Hey Cupcake Cat in Present SVG.  I used the Cupcake Sprinkles paper to make my present box and the Swimming Pool striped side of the Party Purrfect paper for my bow.  To complete, I added a purr-fect sentiment from the Hey Cupcake Chit Chat pieces.

I am a crazy cat lady, but I couldn't leave out the doggie lovers!  I used the Party Time Dog in Present file as the start for this card.  I love all Doodlebug plaid papers, so I used the plaid side of the Party Time Party Boy paper for my present and tied it up with a bow made from the Hats off paper.  I finished it off with the fun green Happy Birthday Chit chat sentiment.

Have you made any projects using the Hey Cupcake or Party Time Collections or Cut files?  Be sure to tag Doodlebug Design on Facebook and Instagram, we always love to see your creations!  That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!

Doodlebug Design | Floating Cards

I can't tell you how many hours I spend on Pinterest.  I'm sure the number would be embarrassing!  It does help me discover new types of cards and paper projects though!  I had never heard of a floating card... but as soon as I saw them, I knew I would be making some soon!  When the Doodlebug Design Team was challenged to create projects featuring the new Confetti Shaped Sprinkles and the Sunshine Alphabet stickers I knew this type of card would be perfect!  Take a peek...

These cards were so fun to make.  For the card base you want to cut a piece of cardstock 4.25" x 7".  Score this piece at 1.5" at the top.  Cut a piece of transparency film 4.25" x 5.5.  Tuck the transparency sheet under the 1.5" flap of the card base and glue to the flap.  This gives you your basic card.  I then cut another piece of the card base paper 1.5" x 4.25" and glued it along the bottom of the transparency sheet.  Then I decorated with some of the patterned papers from Hey Cupcake Collection.

On the transparency portion of the card, I added my sentiments using the new Sunshine Alphabet Stickers and sprinkled some confetti sprinkles.  I finished off with some adorable icons from the Hey Cupcake Odds & Ends.  Here are some close ups...

I love how the transparency sheet makes the alphas and confetti pieces really pop!  If you use the Confetti Sprinkles or Sunshine Alphas in your projects, be sure to tag Doodlebug Design on Facebook and Instagram.  We love to see your projects!  That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!

Lori Whitlock | Floating Easel Halloween Cards

Now that it's September, I feel it's OK to start thinking about Halloween (as opposed to July when the candy was added to my local market!)  Halloween may not look the same this year, but we can still celebrate by sending cards to our favorite goblins!  I created two new Floating Easel Cards and they are available in the Lori Whitlock SVG shop this week!  Take a peek...

Floating Easel Card Haunted House (SVG, Silhouette

Floating Easel Card Spider Web (SVG, Silhouette)

I pieced these together using some of the I Love Halloween Collection from Echo Park Paper.  I have an assembly tutorial on Lori's Blog here.  That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!
