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!

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!

Doodlebug Cut File

Hello everyone!  It’s Karen, and I am up today with a layout featuring some great cut files I created with my trusty Cricut and cute Doodlebug product.

I really love the winter, but I have to admit that I am craving a bit of the colour that comes in spring and winter.  The good news is that my paper collection…ummm… I mean, “supplies” are filled with colour!  And together with some cute cut files from the Lori Whitlock Spring Things collection from Doodlebug, colour can abound this winter!.

A couple of years ago, we took a trip to visit family in Vienna, and some of our favourite places to visit were the amazing gardens.  I took enough pictures to create a whole album just in the gardens alone.  So I thought it would be fun to feature the beautiful flower svgs in this collection for this layout.  

Paired together with Doodlebug’s amazing textured cardstock, the cut files are fun and whimsical!  I used a combination of the brights and rainbow collection for the different flowers featured on the layout… 

…all beautifully coordinated with the patterned paper from the Spring Things patterned paper collection.

All the details about this layout are featured over on the Doodlebug blog, including links to the cut files I used.  Feel free to pop over and have a look!

 

In the end, I have to say that I just love the dimension you can create with the cut files!  perfectly coordinated with this Doodlebug collection, you could actually change up the colours an pair them with other collections you have as well.  Change the size slightly and/or placement and you would have a totally different layout!

Thanks for stopping!
