Party Challenge – New Year’s Eve!

 

Well??!!!  Did you survive?  Have you recouped from the holiday celebrations enough to think about New Year’s Eve?  Don’y worry – you have a couple of more days! And I’ve got you covered in case you have the energy for a few more projects this week!

Recently, the design team at Doodlebug was challenged to pull together a party collection and I thought I would have some fun with a collection called  Hats Off – a great graduation themed collection that was released earlier this year.  Although the collection is really graduation themed, the black and white theme seemed like a perfect fit. Once I started flipping through all the patterns I realized just how perfect it could be!

…starting with my favourite – some little place setting treat boxes that double as a party game for the evening.  

So, if you are interested in more details, make sure to come and visit me over at the Doodlebug blog!  These projects are really easy to complete, so even if you want just a bit of added “homemade” for your festivities, I’m sure you will find something!

Ready for Christmas?

Christmas is just around the corner – yes it’s true!  It is the beginning December and we can no longer deny that Christmas will be here before we know it.  Am I ready? Ummmm…no.  You?  Will I be soon?  Ummmm…no.  You? The truth is that I am never really ready for Christmas to arrive, but I make due!

The good news is that I do have some Christmas decorating up and we have been enjoying it for a few weeks now…like this little printer tray that I created with Doodlebug’s Milk and Cookies collection. 

This printer tray is just slightly bigger than 12×12, so when I was deciding what to embellish the compartments with, the Odds and Ends were a perfect fit – literally!

There is a lot of Doodlebug goodness in this project, so if you are interested in seeing more, pop on over to the Doodlebug blog!

Happy Thanksgiving again!

Good morning and Happy Thanksgiving to those of you in my friendly neighbor country to the south!  We actually celebrated Thanksgiving up here in Canada more than a month ago, but I firmly believe that there are not enough days around that remind us to give thanks so I am hijacking this holiday too!

When I think about things I am thankful for, it will be no surprise that my two little munchkins are at the top of my list.  While I have many things to be thankful for, I couldn’t pas up an opportunity to share a couple of layouts that feature my girls!

Both of these layouts feature a collection from Doodlebug called Fall Friends.  It’s an oldie, but a goodie!

If you are interested in more details, I do have a post up over at the Doodlebug Blog.  Feel free to pop by, and don’t forget to take a moment either here or there to tell me what you are thankful for!

Thanks for stopping by, and if you are celebrating today, may it be filled with all the people you are thankful for!

Doodlebug Booville Post-it holders

Hi everyone!  Happy Halloween!  I know that it isn’t a holiday for everyone…but even if the scary part isn’t for you (I’m with you on that part), there is plenty of cute Halloween fun to be had!   So today, I have a little fun to share featuring Doodlebug’s  Booville  collection!

These little post-it note holders are one of my favourite projects here on the blog.  I think they make perfect little gifts that are a little more useful than a card (although you know I love cards too).

And if you are interested in finding out just how make these, come on over to the Doodlebug blog for a full tutorial!  

Whether you are handing out candy, heading out with the kiddos, or hiding in your house with the lights off, have a spooktacular day!

Thanks for stopping by!
