Hangin' Out layout with Doodlebug Design

I am having so much fun creating rainbow background designs on my layouts lately! The Doodlebug Designs Petite Prints patterned papers come in so many colors, creating a rainbow effect with them is super easy! I also used the So Much Pun collection because all of the adorable food icons are perfect for documenting the snacks my husband and I enjoyed at the county fair last year!

I started by creating a circular background design in my diecut machine software and then used white cardstock to cut it out. I then used a fun assortment of Dot-Stripe Petite Prints patterned papers to back the white cardstock diagonally from the top left corner to the bottom right corner. Can you name the 5 Doodlebug colors I used? I started with Citrus, then used Bumblebee, then Ladybug, then Bubblegum, and then finished with Pistachio. 

I embellished the top left corner by adding coordinating green embellishments. I used Mini Icon stickers, Odds & Ends die cuts, and word stickers from the 12x12 This & That Sticker Sheet. And isn't that sloth Doodlepop just the cutest?! I love the extra dimension it adds to the page! 

I finished the rest of the layout by adding a rainbow of color coordinated embellishments! The Doodlebug embellishments come in a big variety of colors, so finding matching stickers and such was a breeze! Along with the stickers and Odds & Ends pieces, I also added the adorable Jelly Clip cupcake.  And again, how fun is that gumball machine Doodlepop?!? 

Thank you for joining me today! I hope I have inspired you to document your next food adventure using the Petite Prints Papers and the So Much Pun collection!

Disney Love layout

My favorite scrapbook technique lately has been creating a colorful background on my layouts. The Doodlebug Petite Prints Patterned Papers come in so many colors and are perfect for helping me achieve a rainbow effect! On this layout, I also added some coordinating pieces from the adorable French Kiss collection
I started by using the heart from the Doodlebug Lucky Shapes cut file set to cut out a heart design on my white cardstock background. I then used foam adhesive to adhere my four favorite colors of Petite Prints Dot-Stripe Patterned Papers to the back. I then used coordinating Petite Prints Floral-Graph Patterned Papers and the Bella Blvd Florence Alphabet cut file to cut out matching letters. 
I used the fun Abigail Alphabet Stickers in Beetle to start the title and lots of French Kiss Odds & Ends die cut shapes to embellish my layout. I created the little mouse heads in the die cut software by welding together 3 'O' letters from the Bella Blvd Florence cut file. The little flower Shape Sprinkles add the perfect finishing touch. 
No theme park themed scrapbooking supplies? No problem! You can use your favorite general themed patterned papers (think Petite Prints!) and embellishments from your favorite Doodlebug collections (think French Kiss)!

July 4 Layout with Bella Blvd!

I love the combination of red, white, and blue so I couldn't wait to make a layout using the patriotic new Bella Blvd Fireworks and Freedom collection! Also, Bella Blvd has a lot of new cut files in the Silhouette Online Design store I couldn't wait to use - including the awesome Bella Blvd firework cut file I used on this layout! I love how this layout of my niece enjoying some sparklers last year turned out and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do! 
I used my favorite blue and red papers from the collection and the Bella Blvd Firework cut file to create the main fireworks design on my page. I used red embroidery floss to add a fun texture. And aren't the Patriotic Acrylic Star Shapes just the perfect accent pieces coming out of the fireworks display! I also embellished the fireworks display with Icon Chipboard Stickers, Ephemera Word pieces, and the enamel dots that come in the Heart Hugs packs.
I added another firework Ephemera Icons piece coming out of the main display. And then I layered the patriotic heart shaped Ephemera Icons piece over the United States die cut. A red Acrylic Star Shaped piece adds even more fun! 
I used the super cool 'July' Chipboard piece for the title. I used the new and super fun Bella Blvd Florence alphabet (numbers included too) cut file to create the large number 4, which I layered over ephemera pieces. The Blueberry colored Florence alphabet stickers were used to document the year. 
Thanks for joining me today! I hope I have inspired you to use the new Bella Blvd Fireworks and Freedom and cut files on your next layout!

You Color My World layout

Do you ever want to create a rainbow design on your layout, but don't have the time to cut out all of the arches in various colors? Well, rainbow stripe patterned paper to the rescue! It still gives you all the colors and fun that a die cut rainbow would, but is a little easier to create! I also used the Doodlebug Design Lots O' Luck collection on this layout, which was perfect for documenting the picture of my niece and her colorful stuffed bear. 

I first started by opening  the Doodlebug Design rainbow with Clouds cut file and welding the rainbow together in my cut file software. I then used the Rainbows End patterned paper to cut out one large rainbow. I used the multicolor rainbow chevron stickers from the This & That Sticker Sheet and heart Mini Icons stickers to create a fun design above the rainbow. 

I embellished my photo with Odds & Ends pieces, This & That stickers, and Sprinkles round enamel dot stickers! 

I then used the Doodlebug Design Rainbow with Clouds cut file to cut out the cloud and added journaling to it. I embellished my journaling space with more Odds & Ends pieces (my favorite in case you haven't noticed!), Mini Icons Stickers, and more Blue Jean Assortment Sprinkles. I love that the Sprinkles can be used to add little colorful accents around a layout! 

Thank you for joining me today! I hope I have inspired you to use rainbow stripe patterned paper to make a bold statement on your next layout!

Sweet Girl Layout

I couldn't wait to use the Doodlebug Design French Kiss collection again because it is just so very sweet! Sure it has some Valentine's Day pieces, but it has so many other general themed elements! Here I used the collection to document my sweet little senior pooch. I used the Doodlebug Simply Spring Flower Wreath cut file to create the fun and colorful background design on my page.

I used the Simply Spring Flower Wreath cut file to die cut the wreath out of white cardstock. I used the French Kiss 6x6 paper pad and Citrus colored Textured Cardstock to back the die cut shape with lots of colorful papers. I embellished the wreath with Chocolate Box Shape Sprinkles, Mini Icon Stickers, and Odds & Ends pieces adhered with foam adhesive. I then adhered the wreath to a sheet of Petite Prints Patterned Paper in Swimming Pool. I used more Odds & Ends pieces (my fav!) and Shape Sprinkles to embellish the photo of my pooch and I.

I used the 'SWEET' Odds & Ends die cut piece for the first half of my title. I used my die cut machine and French Kiss 6x6 Paper Pad to cut out the rest. I added a little strip of the adorable Special Delivery Washi Tape under the word SWEET to add a little color to the bottom of my page. And, of course, I had to use the little doggie Odds & Ends piece! 

Thank you for joining me today! I hope I have inspired you to use the French Kiss collection and Doodlebug Design cut files on your next layout!

Hello Sugar Happy Spring layout

A rainbow of Doodlebug Design colors from Bubblegum pink to Grasshopper green? Yes, please! I easily created this cool rainbow background using the cloud from the Doodlebug Rainbow with Clouds cut file and lots of Dot-Stripe Petite Prints patterned papers. I also used fun elements from the So Much Pun and Simply Spring collections. I love that all of the Doodlebug Design collections mix and match so well! 

To add interest to my cloud background, I used the Stone Gray Dot-Stripe Petite Prints patterned paper to cut out a second 'background'. I then adhered this to the backside of my white background (shifted up slightly) to give the clouds a gray bottom. I then placed my cloud background over 1 inch strips of the Petite Prints patterned papers in a rainbow of colors from Bubblegum to Grasshopper! I used So Much Pun Odds & Ends pieces to embellish my photo. I don't know what's more yummy...the ice cream cone in my picture or the rainbow effect background! What do you think?!

I embellished my second photo with Odds & Ends pieces from the Simply Spring (title words) and the So Much Pun (plants and the sun) collections!  I love adding a couple of the Doodlebug Sprinkles around my page. 

Thank you for joining me today! I hope I have inspired you to create a Doodlebug Design rainbow effect on your next layout!

Hello Pool Vibes layout

Who else is ready for summer? Since it's not here yet, creating with the bright and sunny new Bella Blvd Splash Zone collection was the next best thing! It was the perfect collection to document my niece at the pool last year. I love all of the colorful fish, leaves, and pool toys! How fun! And did you know that Bella Blvd has cut files now?! I used the sun from the Bella Blvd sun & clouds cut file set to easily create my fun sun design! 

As soon as I saw the amazingly fun striped Daily Details patterned paper, I knew it had to be the background for this layout. I then used the Make A Wish patterned paper from the Wish Big Boy collection to cut out the main sun part. Word stickers from the Splash Zone collection Doohickey sticker sheet and ephemera pieces of fish add a fun design to the sun's rays. Enamel dots from the Heart Hugs pack add a cute little detail. I then used lots of adorable ephemera pieces to embellish the top of my page! 

I am in love with the graphics in this collection! How cute is that floatie ephemera and chipboard fish and waves?! 

I backed my photo with the red Splash Zone Flower Garden patterned paper so my picture would stand out. I used the cool 'Pool Vibes' ephemera piece as part of the title. I then finished my page with some fun Puffy Star Stickers and Splash Zone Acrylic stars!

Easter Egg Hunt layout

Do you still have a few favorite pictures from Easter that need to be scrapbooked? I sure do! And I was more than happy to get out the adorable Hoppy Easter collection again to document those photographs! I love creating with this collection. The adorable bunnies and chicks and fun color scheme just make me so happy! I also had fun creating a cool background using the Doodlebug Lots O Luck Lucky Shapes cut file set!

I created the fun background by using the star shape to make a random star pattern in my die cut machine software. I then die cut out my pattern on white cardstock. I then die cut the same pattern using Bubblegum and Swimming Pool Petite Prints patterned paper. I adhered these second two cut outs off center (the Bubblegum one offset to the left and the Swimming Pool one offset to the right) to make a border on the star cut out. I then backed the entire page with the colorful Easter Egg Hunt patterned paper. I just love how cool and colorful the stars are! I used lots of Odds & Ends pieces to make my title. And how cute is that little Easter Cute Clip carrot?!

I used my favorite patterned papers from the collection to back my photo and added more Odds & Ends pieces. I used This & That Stickers (the rainbow border and pink squiggle line) to embellish the side of the page. 

Thanks for joining me today! I hope I have inspired you to finish documenting your Easter pics using the Hoppy Easter collection!

Spring Time layout

What do you get when you pair the Doodlebug Design Hoppy Easter Basket of Flowers cut file with the Hoppy Easter and Simply Spring collections? A basketful of cuteness - that's what! The cut file and these collections were perfect for helping me document the yearly yard full of Easter eggs my mother-in-law puts out for us to find on Easter morning!

Don't let the number of cuts of this design overwhelm you. The Doodlebug Design cut files have all of the different sections colored in, which makes it super easy to keep the pieces organized. I simply grouped all of the parts together by color and then cut out each color group. Assembling and then 'filling' the basket was so much fun! 

I used the Petite Prints Stripe patterned paper in Bon Bon on the basket to give it a faux wood look. I used Doodlebug cardstock and patterned papers from the Hoppy Easter collection for my flowers. I used Doodlebug Design cardstock and the Petite Prints Floral paper in Bumblee on the bow. Sprinkles add even more cuteness! Once my basket was complete, I added the adorable bunny, carrot, and radish Odds & Ends pieces. How cute is that little bunny sitting in the basket?!  

I finished off the layout with the rainbow wheel This & That sticker, more Odds & Ends pieces, and a couple Icon Stickers. I can't get over how cute that little bunny hopping through the grass is! 

Thank you for joining me today! I hope I have inspired you to use a large cut file with the Hoppy Easter collection on your next layout!

HAPPY Day layout!

I love that all of the Bella Blvd collections mix and match so well! My goal was to use 3 collections, but I just couldn't stop at only 3. I ended up mixing 5 collections on this layout - Wish Big Boy, Wish Big Girl, Plaids & Dotty, Island Escape, and Mom Life! I also had so much fun using a couple of the brand new Bella Blvd cut files on my title!



I used the Happy Word Acrylic cut file to cut out multiples from different patterned papers from the Island Escape and Mom Life collections. I then backed them with strips of Plaids & Dotty polka dot papers for a fun and happy look. I love all of the colors and patterns in this title, don't you?!



I also embellished the page with chipboard from Island Escape and lots of Puffy Heart Stickers and Heart Hugs! I love the texture that the Heart Hugs add!



I used the Birthday Acrylic Word cut file for this part, but I erased the 'birth' part of the word in my cut file software. The patterned paper is from the Wish Big Boy collection! The enamel dots come in the packs of Heart Hugs. 



Thanks for joining me today! I hope I have inspired you to use lots of patterned papers from multiple collections on your next layout!

How've You Bean?

Ever since Doodlebug Design released their new stamp sets, stamping on layouts has been my new favorite technique! I had so much fun creating the jelly bean background using the jelly bean from the Hoppy Easter stamp set. And I couldn't wait to use the entire Hoppy Easter collection to document my niece's time with the Easter Bunny! 

Stamping the random jelly bean pattern was so easy and I love the whimsical design it adds! I used Odds & Ends pieces and Icon Stickers to embellish this section. Did you find the little purple ant Sprinkles sticker in the grass?

Seriously how cute is this little hopping bunny? He might be my favorite! I created this part of the title using the Tangerine Skinny cardstock alpha stickers and an Odds & Ends banner piece. And of course I used lots of Sprinkles to embellish my page!

I really wanted to emphasize the word 'bean' so I used my die cut machine to supersize it using fun patterned paper backed with a solid cardstock. I finished off my layout with the chick Odds & Ends piece and of course more Sprinkles! 

Thank you for joining me today! I hope I have inspired you to stamp on your next layout!

Big Egg Hunt

 I had so much fun creating this Spring themed layout using the new Bella Blvd cut files and the Plaids & Dotty and Wish Big Girl collections! All of the bright colors and flowers definitely make me happy and so ready for Spring! 

 I used the Bella Blvd Wish Big cut file for my title. I erased the 'wish' part in my cut file software and then enlarged the 'big'. I cut out 'big' from two different patterned papers and layered one on top of the other with foam adhesive to really make it pop. I wanted to really express that it was a big egg hunt because there were 50,000 plastic eggs to be hunted! I finished the title with the Bella Blvd Wonky Puffy Alphabet Stickers. I also used the Bella Blvd Frog cut file to cut out this cute little frog guy. Isn't he adorable?

The die cut bird and flower pieces from the Wish Big Girl collection make perfect springtime embellishments! And I love the color and detail that the Word Salad quote stickers add! 

I pulled this sweet little chipboard butterfly from the Bug Explorer collection. All of the enamel dots are from the Heart Hugs packs. I love the detail they add!
Thank you for joining me today. I hope I have inspired you to create a BIG (pun intended) title on your next layout!
