What sunny day wouldn’t be complete without a happy sun looking over everything? I added black pearl stickers to the sun’s eyes to make this Odds & Ends die cut dimensional.

I tied a length of green ribbon around my photos and then decorated the knot with a flower die cut from the Odds & Ends pack. A pair of leisurely ladybug Sprinkles are lounging on the leaves I added from the Garden Flowers pack. I scored the leaves down the center and bent them a bit to bring them to life.

At the bottom of the page is a springtime scene of friendly critters having a conversation along the garden fence. Just like the sun above, I have added black pearl stickers to the eyes of the turtle and ladybug. Everyone seems to be so happy the sun is finally out!

To frame my design I used the same striped patterned paper (Under My Umbrella Paper) along the top and bottom of the page. I also made sure to include pink and use a scalloped border sticker, as well. Repeating a color or element around your page can make your design more cohesive.

Doodlebug Design: You Color My World

I think every little (and big) girl goes through a phrase of loving unicorns and rainbows. If you are one of those girls (and WHO isn’t?!) you are going to want to spend a day playing with the Doodlebug Lots O’ Luck collection with all of its rainbow and unicorn goodness!

For my daughter’s 14th birthday, I had my bestie bake her this darling unicorn cake as a surprise. She loved it! It was perfect with it’s rainbow colored mane, golden horn, and delicious pink, Funfetti cake inside.

I began this page by using the Swimming Pool Dots/Stripes paper for my background. I then added a series of patterned paper strips for my photos to rest upon. I gave the main photo a triple mat with white cardstock, Raspberry Textured Cardstock, and the Gold Sugar Coated Cardstock. I called even more attention to the main photo by placing a large circle of Lots O’ Luck paper (green argyle) behind it.

For the title, I used a sticker from the This & That Sticker Sheet. I just love that rainbow and the sentiment, “You Color My World.” I accented this corner of the page with a couple of die cut clouds from the Odds & Ends pack, and Gold Sprinkles.

You KNOW I had to add a unicorn to a page about a unicorn cake! Isn’t she cute with her rosy cheeks and rainbow mane and tail?! I paired her with a couple of hearts from the Odds & Ends pack and then added Matte Sprinkles and Gold Sprinkles to the hearts for dimension.

These papers make me smile every time I pull them out to play with them and you will, too! Have fun!

Doodlebug Design: Lucky

When my children were little Pat the Leprechaun would visit us every St. Patrick’s Day. He would leave a string of poetic clues for my children to follow around the house. At the end, they would find a bag of green goodies for each of them. This was such a fun family tradition, and one I couldn’t wait to document with the adorable Doodlebug Lots O’ Luck collection.

I used my digital die cutting machine to create the title in a rainbow of Doodlebug Textured cardstocks. I used a couple of embossing folders from my stash to give them an embossed pattern before adhering it to my page using foam squares.

The Gold Sugar Coated cardstock mat on this photo really helps it to stand out as a focal point on my page!

I used my computer to type my journaling inside a circle sized to fit inside the scalloped circle sticker from the This & That Stickers.

In the lower left corner of the page I paired the leprechaun from the Odds & Ends pack with the Good Luck shamrock Doodlepop to create a sweet little scene. I love the gold-foiled accents on all of the components of this collection!

In the bottom right corner of the page, I added a pot of gold, a rainbow, and a couple of shiny gold coins accented with the Gold Sprinkles.

This page was a BLAST together and makes me want to resurrect our “Pat the Leprechaun” tradition this year, even though my kids are older. It was so much fun!

Doodlebug Design: Life is Like a Box of Chocolates

Like most people, I have a deep weakness for chocolate, so of course I love all of the adorable images of chocolates in the French Kiss collection!

A couple of years ago my son went to a high school Halloween Dance with his date dressed as Forrest Gump and Jenny. I took these cute pictures of him before he left and decided to use the Chocolate Box Shape Sprinkles and the Box of Chocolates digital cut file to recreate a larger version of the Sweetheart Doodlepop sticker from the collection.

I measured the chocolate shape sprinkles and then resized the Box of Chocolates cut file to fit them. It was so much fun filling up my heart shaped box! If only I could take a taste! They look so delicious!

I used the Lily White Abigail Letter Stickers to spell out my title. I placed the top half of the title on vellum clouds created with the Clouds cut file. I resized and reproportioned the banner from the Boy In Airplane cut file to house the word “chocolate.”

I added more vellum clouds to the top of the layout along with a few Heart Throb Shape Sprinkles. So cute!

I placed one of my photos on the red card from the French Kiss Cards & Envelopes. I love the way the bracket shape adds a fun design element to this part of the layout. I tucked in a few flower and chocolate die cuts from the Odds & Ends pack in the lower corner and then added a few Chit Chat phrases to the bottom.

I loved playing with the cute chocolate images in this collection so much! Next, I think I will make a page documenting my LOVE of chocolate. What will you use them for?
