Coffee Love

Hi Everyone!  I'm back again today with another layout I created for the Spring Crop over at Paper Issues.  This particular challenge was the Saturday Selfie Challenge... 

My day does not begin until I've had my coffee... and at the Crop on the Cape, this means our morning trip to Dunkin' Donuts!  So I took a couple of selfies with my XL Coffee, and printed them on an Instax printer.  The papers and embellishments are from Doodlebug Designs Cream & Sugar Collection.

I just love the Coffee Bean Shaped Sprinkles... they have cute little faces, and the coffee clips are too cute!
More of the Shaped Sprinkles with the to go cup, again smiling like the coffee beans... just adorable.

Be sure to check out all of the great challenges over in the Paper Issues Friends and Fans Facebook Group, they are great for sparking that creative mojo!  That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!

All You Need is Love & a Cat

Hi Everyone!  It's been a while but I actually scrapped just for fun this weekend!  I spent a fun filled few days with some great friends at the Crop on the Cape, and actually got some stuff done!  I tend to chat more than scrap at these events lol.  Anyway, here is the first of the layouts I scrapped ...

This weekend was also the Spring Crop at Paper Issues.  They had a ton of challenges, and I created this layout for their Lucky in Love Challenge to scrap about someone/something you love.  Of course being a crazy cat lady, I scrapped my sweet boy Jax.  I used the new Meow from My Mind's Eye... It is such an adorable collection!

The cute little card from the Journal Card Pack was perfect for my title, and the die cuts and puffy stickers are too adorable!  I have a few more layouts I will try to blog later in the week, but If you're looking for some scrappy inspiration, check out the challenges over at Paper Issues, there's a little something for everyone!  That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!

Doodlebug Design: 3D Calendar

Hi Everyone!  Today I have a fun calendar project I created for Doodlebug Design.  This was one of those projects that got stuck in my head, and I could work on nothing else until it was complete!

I created the typewriter box using some Gingham Linen Petite Prints, some fun papers from the Spring Things collection and this cut file from  I finished it off with the ADORABLE Honey Bee Doodle Pop. Here are some close-ups ...

They Typewriter is actually a box.  I thought this would be a great place to store the monthly calendars not in use!

The calendar pages are attached to the Typewriter paper using some low profile Velcro dots. 

For the calendar pages, I created a 4x6 printable calendar which I printed on the "b" sides of some of the Daily Doodles Papers and then added Daily Doodles Month Stickers.  I further decorated each calendar page with stickers from various Doodlebug Collections. I love how easy it is to mix and match Doodlebug Collections!  Here are some close-ups of the other calendar pages...

I ended with January of 2018 since I didn't want to waste a month!  I can't wait to put this in my craft room! Be sure to stop by the Doodlebug Blog to check out more calendar inspiration from the design team!    That's it for me today,  thanks for stopping by to peek!

Doodlebug Design: Easter Express Projects and a Free Silhouette Cut File!

Hi Everyone!  Today I have a sweet shaker card and gift bag I created using the new Doodlebug Design Easter Express!  Take a peek...

I started with this cut file from Lori Whitlock for the adorable little egg-shaped bag.  I used the flowered side of the Chickie Babies paper for the box and decorated it with a bunny from the Odds & Ends, and one of the word strips from the Springtime Stripes Paper.

Just fill it with some Easter grass and some treats and it's the perfect little gift!  I searched for the perfect card to accompany this box, and ended up making one of my own!  I created a Silhouette file for the shaker card below...

This card reminds me of those diorama sugar Easter eggs from when I was little!  I decorated the inside with another bunny and some flowers from the Odds & Ends and added some Doodlebug Sequins for the shakers!  Now something for you!  I'd love to share the Silhouette cut file for this card with you!  You can download it from my cut-files page for free here!  That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!
