DOCTOR FOR A DAY - Doodlebug Designs

If both your parents work in the medical field, then you are bound to try to be like them in a way or another.   So, when the new HAPPY HEALING collection arrived at my doorstep, I knew exactly which pictures of my littlest Goddaughter I was going to use for my first project.

I just love how this turned out!, but let me walk you on how I built this page using the new collection. There are so many cute embellishments, I focus on them for  my page.

I started with one of the coordinating solid cardstock from the collection as a base, and frame it with the Happy Heart paper.   Then, trimmed a small strip of the Happy Healing patterned paper and adhere to the base as an anchor  for my photos.

Then it was  all about going through the Bits and Pieces, Odds & Ends for embellishments for the page.  I wanted to create a column of  embellishments that will just bring the fun to this page.

I have to say that the silver foiling in this collection is amazing!   Once I  had all the embellishments in a column., I added small puffy hearts around the embellishments.

To finish my page, I pulled pieces of Chit Chat and Bits and pieces to create the title of my page.  The silver alpha stickers are just a great compliment to the title of this layout.

I  just love how this turned out!  The fun designs, the colors, the silver foiling, and the cute pictures are just so perfect together.  I cannot wait to see what you create with the new HAPPY HEALING collection!

Pinkfresh Studio “Delightful” Release Blog Hop


Hi there! 

Welcome to PINKFRESH STUDIO "DELIGHTFUL" RELEASE BLOG HOP.   We are celebrating all the new beautiful products with lots of inspiration and prizes.   

With so many  beautiful products to choose from, it was so easy to combine a few of them into this layout

I am combining the new JOYFUL DAY Press Plate and NEVER GIVE UP suite along with the Making The Best Of It collection (Spanish version) in my layout, and I love how it turned out!

I used the NEVER GIVE UP Press Plate, NEVER GIVE UP Stencil, NEVER GIVE UP die, and Premium inks in shades of pink and mint to create 3 florals, as I wanted to create a large swag for my page.

Next, I cut a circle of about 7" from the center of a 8.5x11" white cardstock page, and glued it to dusk pink cardstock.  I then set the florals as if they were coming off the inside of the left of the circle.

Next, I set the photo to the right of the circle.   In order to elongate the swag throughout the page, I used the JOYFUL DAY Press plate, and  JOYFUL DAY die  to create a few leaf die cuts 

I added a few of the JOYFUL DAY die cuts along the florals to complete the fullness of the swag.  I then added a few embellishments to complete the page.

I hope this inspires you to check all the new products in this release.  You are going to love all the possibilities!!

SHAKER CARDS - Doodlebug Design

I think all of us love all the cute Doodle Pops, especially the shaker ones.  But, now we can make them ourselves with the new  Doodlebug Shakers Balls.   What can I say, besides there are infinite possibilities with them.  My first choice was to create a few cards with them:

I pulled my Doodle Cuts Nested Scallops, Bunny Hop collection, the Easter Card set, and foam adhesive!

I started by using the large die to cut  the shape out of patterned paper and also a few pieces of white cardstock.   I stacked and glued them together, with a piece of acetate between them.   Then I used foam adhesive to create a close circle around the open space.   I filled the shaker with the Flowers Shaker, the adhere the die cut to the card.   I added a piece of Chit Chat and Bits and Pieces to complete the card.

I used the left over piece of the die cut to  create  my next card.  I adhere a piece of acetate to the back of the die cut piece, then added foam adhesive to create a dam for all the shaker pieces.  I mixed a few colors of shakers, then secured it to the card.   I added a sentiment and a simple sentiment and embellishment to complete this card.

For the last card, I used the flower shape of the  die set to cut 9 pieces from white cardstock, and three from  patterned paper.   I sandwiched acetate pieces between two layers of the die cuts to get  3 of each of the colors.  Next, I filled the color die cuts with solid color shakers, and the white die cuts with the flower shakers.  These are adhere to a white card in alternate form.   Finally, I added a small sentiment to complete this card.

I cannot wait to keep on creating with the new shakers  I  have so many ideas just waiting to come together.  Cannot wait to  see what you create!!
