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!
