Valentine’s Cards with So Punny

Valentine’s Day is coming up quickly, and while not everyone is a fan, Doodlebug’s So Punny collection will make you a convert!  In fact, this collection is so cute and so versatile that you will be using it for everything from Valentine’s Day to Father’s Day to birthdays to Pizza Day (actually, I’m not sure if there is a pizza day, but if not, let’s invent one just so we have an excuse to craft with this collection some more)!

It’s a great collection because there really is something for everyone!  Whether your loved ones love BBQ…

…a gummi bears…

…or pizza, this collection has got you covered!

 

So come on by the Doodlebug blog for more details on this cute collection and this trio of cards!

Thanks for stopping by!

DD Dragon tails

Okay wait a minute?!  How did I miss posting this project?  I created this layout last spring for Doodlebug and it has become one of my absolute favourite projects!  So the time has come to share it here as well…because it doesn’t get cuter than vikings, right?!

A couple of years ago, we took a trip to Disney World and while we had a great time at all the parts, we had some particularly fun memories at Epcot.  One of those memories was when my dear hubby donned a viking helmet because my youngest absolutely refused to put that thing on here head!  When this cute collection – called Dragon Tails –  came out, I knew it would be perfect for this photo.

Originally, I was going to do the journaling along the edges of the waves, but there were some images on the background paper that didn’t get completely covered by the waves, so I decided to create some hidden journaling, using the waves to create a pocket for the tag.

Oh, and I ended up having so much fun with this collection that I created some candy bar sliders as well.  All the details for both projects are still up over at the Doodlebug blog! 

Anyway, it might be a bit late, but I hope it brought a smile to your face today!

Soooo sweet!

Good morning crafty peeps and happy Saturday.  Let’s see – this weekend could not have come fast enough. But the good news is I now have a bit of time for a good rest and a bit of crafty fun!  Starting with some Tiddly Inks!

This cutie is one of Christy’s characters named Molly.  This particular version of Molly is a dig called Molly Treat.  I love colouring Molly’s hair…

 

…and I decided to give yellow a try for her dress.  It’s funny – yellow is not usually my go to colour for large sections of my stamps.  But I love how bright and fun it looks together with the Doodlebug paper.  I don’t know – what do you think?  Does yellow suit Molly?

Well, whatever you have planned this weekend, I hope it involved a rest, some crafting and maybe even a bit of a treat (perhaps not one as big as Molly’s, but a treat nonetheless)!

Cream and Sugar 2

Hi everyone! Guess what?  I am so excited to announce that I get to join Doodlebug for another year!  Joining this team was a thrill last year, and I had a great time creating with some of the most beautiful product around from an incredibly generous and fun company. So, when they asked if I would like to continue, it took less than a second to reply “YES!”.

Last year, when I started on the team, Cream & Sugar was the first collection that I was introduced too.  It has remained one of my favourites, not just for sentimental reasons, but also because as a coffee lover with a serious sweet tooth, I feel like this collection was made for me.  And given all the comments and cute project we have seen from all of you, we know it is a favourite of yours as well!

So for my first project this term, I thought I would go back to my card making roots!  You know I love my interactive and fun fold cards, so it was fun to pull out some of my old stand-bys…like side step cards!

And if a side step card is not your jam, a traditional A2 might work for you!

I have more pictures and plenty of details up over at the Doodlebug blog if you want to stop by!  In the meantime, I hope you can find some time to do a little crafting on what is left of this weekend!  I know I have a couple of projects up my sleeve!

Thanks for stopping by!

 

 

In terms of sentiments, that part was easy too!  I simply grabbed some stickers from the This & That sticker sheet , backed them with some paper from the 12×12 pack (although the 6×6 would be perfect too), and stick them on!

 

Add some Sprinkles (like these cute Cupcake coloured ones) and maybe a mini paper clip or two and you are all set!

So there you have it – a cute set of three cards ready for Valentine’s day next month, or any time that you want to send a little message that will make someone smile.  For now, these little cuties are going to find a place in my crafty space because quite frankly, they make me smile!

Thanks for stopping by!  Hugs,
Karen
