Doodlebug Santa Express gift bags

Hello friends! I'm up on the Doodlebug blog today with some Christmas gift bags or even treat bags. These little bags are about 5 inches tall so they would be perfect to throw in some candy and maybe a little toy or two. Or maybe you want to give someone a gift card. They are the perfect little gift givers! And the Santa Express embellishments make they totally adorable!

Putting these little guys together was a snap. I found the Christmas Reindeer Bag cut at the Silhouette Design Store and just knew they would be absolutely adorable made with Doodlebug's Santa Express.

The little tags on the front are backed with the wonderful Sprinkles Vellum and made the perfect background for the sentiment. I also found them in the Silhouette Design and here.

I used the new clothes pins to keep the bags closed at the handle and added a tag from the Fancy Frills sticker sheet.

Thanks for stopping by today! Be sure to keep stopping by the Doodlebug blog each day for more inspiration with the Santa Express collection! You'll be sure to love each project!

Doodlebug Friendly Forest HB2U gift

Hello Doodlebug friends! Aimee here with you sharing my Friendly Forest birthday gift set. The colors are so fun and vibrate, I thought it would be perfect to wish someone a "Happy" birthday!!

The first piece of my project is this little basket which sports 2 (homemade) bars of pumpkin spice scented soap. The basket was created using the  3-D fruit basket cut which I got from the Silhouette Studio. I used a brown plaid piece of pattern paper from the collection for the basket and lined it some of that gorgeous striped washi tape.

Then came the fun part of decorating the front with all of the embellishments such as the new clothes pins and glitter Sprinkles! To add a little more dimension, I adhered 3 of the acorns together and folded them upwards.

The card came together easily by adding washi tape, stickers, Sprinkles, a leaf diecut, and a Doodlepop owl to the front of  a Doodlebug card.

And finally the gift itself.....I got in the kitchen with my sweet girl and we made some pumpkin spice soap bars. I found a simple recipe off of Pinterest. I wrapped strips of vellum and pattern paper around them and then topped it off with some stickers, twine, and the wonderful new goodies from Doodlebug.....the clothes pins! I can't wait to give this gift away to someone special!!

Doodlebug Happy Camper

Hello Doodlebug friends! Aimee here with you to share a layout I created using the new Happy Camper collection! I have a ton of photos of the kiddos out at the fire pit either roasting marshmallows or hot dogs! It is so much fun cooking our dinners on the fire when the weather is cooler!  And the new Happy Camper collection is perfect for getting those pics scrapped!

Doodlebug just came out with some fun paper clips so I thought how cute would it be to string a bunch together to create a banner. It turned out great and I love it! 

To get it attached to my layout I used some green thread and sewed some loops around each end of the paper clips. To secure the thread to the back I taped down the loose ends.

Love, love, love the adorable forest critter Doodlepops!! They look adorable on any project! I have my sweet little fox roasting a hot dog since we have had some fox sightings in our backyard this summer!

Hope you've been inspired! You will have so much fun creating with this camping collection!

Doodlebug Illuminated Haunted House

TGI FRIDAY!! I'm up today on the Doodlbug blog sharing my illuminated haunted house created with the new Ghouls and Goodies

Lights off......

LIGHTS ON!! How great would it be to have this little cutie as part of your Halloween display?!?! I used the 3-D Haunted Mansion from the Silhouette Studio store. (The original cut doesn't have holes to thread lights inside but I will offer some directions down at the bottom of my post.) Once I had it put together I used all of the fun and eerily cute embellishments to decorate it! 

Directions for adding lights: Once I had the main cut up in the Silhouette Studio drawing area, I added a circle to the back of the main house area and three more going from the house into the tower. The red circles in the pictures below are the circles you will have add.

Before I had the two areas adhered together I thread the lights to the inside of the house/tower and taped them down to the back walls. Then I adhered the house together and decorated it.

I had so much fun creating this and hope you give it a try too!

Inspired by Challenge Doodlebug

 Happy Monday to all! Today I am up on the Doodlebug blog and we are sharing our scraplifted projects this week. I chose one of my scrapbook buddies who I find inspiration from on a daily basis and her name......Monique Liedtke

The layout that I chose of hers to scraplift is one from last year's Home For The Holidays collection called Snow Fun. Her title work is what really caught my eye! I loved everything from the big title with a smaller title inside to the twirly twine stapled on! Pure perfection! Here is her layout: 

And here is my layout called Pirate Buddies. I followed her title work pretty closely but I did add another section of arrows to the right side of my title and left off the banner part of the title. 

Here is a close up shot of how I recreated Monique's title.....

If you are looking for some more inspiration from past and present Doodlebug DT work, just check out the Doodlebug Pinterest page! You'll spend hours delving into all of the wonderful projects created from the Doodlebug girls!!
