Doodlebug Design Hey Cupcake!

Have you seen the amazing new Doodlebug Design Sunshine Alphabet and the Shape Sprinkles Stickers?! I featured both of them on today's layout and I love all of the cuteness they added to my page. I also used the adorable Hey Cupcake collection because I just can't get enough of the super fun color palette and cute party llamas! 

I love that the brand new Shape Sprinkles Confetti packs contain so many cutesy shapes! Can you find them all on my layout?

I used the largest scallops circle die from the awesome Doodle Cuts Nesting Scallops Die set to create a fun background design. I cut out a number of different scalloped circles, adhered them together on the back, and then cut them in half. I embellished this half circle with Sunshine Alphabet Stickers in Limeade, Shape Sprinkles Confetti in Swimming Pool, and Mini Icons Stickers! 

Here I embellished the half circles with the Sunshine Alphabet Stickers in Bon Bon and Tangerine. I used Bubblegum Shape Sprinkles Confetti Stickers to add some fun dimension. How cute is that llama Mini Icons Sticker?! 

The Odds & Ends Pieces are some of my favorite Doodlebug Embellishments too! Here I used a fun banner and cute little girl die cut pieces to embellish around my photo. I used more Bubblegum Shape Sprinkles to embellish the balloon as well. 

I love that the Sunshine Alphabet Stickers come in so many amazing Doodlebug colors! Here I used the Bumblebee and Limeade stickers on my scalloped circle cut outs. The Mini Icons Stickers are the perfect size to embellish the half circles. Can you find where I used the Bon Bon Shape Sprinkles Stickers?

Thanks for joining me today! I hope I have inspired you to grab some of the amazing new Sunshine Alphabet and Shape Sprinkles Confetti Stickers for your next project!

Doodlebug Design Bundle of Joy Layout

I absolutely love Doodlebug's signature bright colors, but the soothing soft colors in the brand new baby boy and girl collections have me swooning! The pink based Bundle of Joy and blue based Special Delivery collections are perfect for documenting your little ones! Here I combined the two collections to document a sweet picture of my niece when she was a baby.

I started by using the gorgeous soft gray Choo Choo Patterned Paper from the Special Delivery Collection for my background. To say that I love this plaid paper is an understatement! I then used the cool new Doodlebug Design Doodle Cuts Nesting Scallops Circle Dies and Bundle of Joy patterned papers to create my page design. Did you notice I used some of the brand new Shape Sprinkles around the page? 
I used words from the Bundle of Joy Chit Chat Odds & Ends Pack to easily create a sweet title for the page. 
I embellished the scalloped circle cut outs with Bundle of Joy Icons Stickers and lots of the awesome new Shape Sprinkles! I can't get enough of this sweet and soft color palette for babies. Isn't that stork sticker just the cutest?!
I had so much fun using the Doodle Cuts Nesting Scallops Circle Dies to create this page design. I think the circles work great with the muted Bundle of Joy colors to create a soft page background. 
Thanks for joining me today! I hope I have inspired you to grab the Bundle of Joy Collection and Scalloped Circle Doodle Cuts for your next layout! Have a great day!

Bella Blvd August Mood Board

I always LOVE using the Bella Blvd Mood Boards for inspiration! And of course, the August Mood Board is just as fabulous as the previous ones. Come take a look! 
Right away I was inspired by the pink, yellow, and aqua chair cushions in the bottom middle square. I decided to go for a bold background and used 1/2" strips of the Bella Besties Freehand Graph & Dot Patterned Paper in Peep, Bell Pepper, and Gulf. I really love how the stripes turned out! 

I embellished the top corner of my page with adorable chipboard stickers, Doohickey stickers, and ephemera pieces from the Splash Zone collection. I also added a couple fun Star Mix Acrylic Shapes. 

I was inspired by the quote to use the awesome Bella Blvd Soak Up the Sunshine Cut File for my title. Here I used the Freehand Graph & Dot Patterned Paper in Blueberry so it would really pop against the striped background. I backed the open letters with fun patterned papers from the Splash Zone and Chloe collections. Don't you just love how the word 'Sunshine' pops against the stripes?! 

I also made sure to include some fun chipboard pieces from the Splash Zone that were inspired by the mood board as well. Did you notice I added pineapples and a flamingo float to the layout too? I also love that the striped background kind of reminds me of a beach towel. I can't wait to use another Bella Blvd Mood Board! 

Thanks for joining me today! I hope I have inspired you to grab the August Mood Board, some Bella Besties papers, and the Splash Zone collection for next project! Have a great day!

Adventure Awaits Layout - Bella Blvd

Good day everyone, Tegan here! Today's post is all about using the brand new Bella Blvd cat-themed Chloe collection! The thing is though, I don't have a cat so I used the collection to create an everyday layout without any cats! The Chloe collection is full of amazing patterned papers and fun graphics. I had so much pulling out the everyday pieces to create this layout! 
I embellished the top of the page with Chloe Doohickey Stickers and a chipboard shape and a puffy star sticker. The adorable cloud chipboard piece is from the fun new dog-themed Cooper collection. I then added the Chloe Epoxy Heart Stickers to each of the sun rays.
I used the super fun Bella Blvd Sun Cut File and some yellow and orange Chloe patterned papers to create my sun background. I had known that I wanted the Adventure Awaits Cut File to be my focal point so I used the Freehand Graph & Dot Patterned Paper in Blueberry so it would really stand out against the yellow and orange sun. I then used lots of awesome patterned papers from the Chloe collection to back the open letters. The chipboard tree is from the Cooper collection.
I added some Squeeze the Day Sweetness Washi Tape strips to the bottom of the page. I embellished the strips with some Chloe Doohickey Stickers. 
I had so much fun using the Chloe collection and a little of the Cooper collection to create this everyday themed layout. And aren't the Bella Blvd cut files just the coolest?! What is your favorite part of the Chloe collection? I can't decide - I love it all! 
Thanks for stopping in today! I hope I have inspired you to grab the Chloe collection and some Bella Blvd cut files for your next project!

Fun with the Bella Blvd Florence Alphabet!

Good day, friends! Today's layout is all about featuring the super cool Bella Blvd Florence Alphabet Stickers. Since it is summertime here, I also grabbed the amazingly colorful Squeeze the Day collection. I had so much fun putting together this fun and fruity layout! 
I first used the Bella Blvd Strawberries Cut File to create a super fun background for my page. Once the berries were cut out I backed the white cardstock with a sheet of the Bella Besties Freehand Graph & Dot Patterned Paper in Peep. I love how the pink strawberry background turned out. I then used the Bella Blvd Bananas Cut File to create an anchoring banana shape for the first part of my title. Here I used the Florence Alphabet Stickers in Gulf.
I then used some more fun Florence Alphabet Stickers in Bell Pepper on a couple of the ephemera watermelon die cut pieces to create the rest of my title. The Florence Alphabet Stickers are the perfect size for putting on die cut shapes!
 I had a blast mixing the Squeeze the Day collection with the amazing Florence Alphabet Stickers! And I love all of the fruity goodness that made it on to my page here. I can't decide which fruit piece is my favorite, can you?
Thanks for joining me today! I hope I have inspired you to grab the Florence Alphabet Stickers and the Squeeze the Day collection for your next project!

All American Cuties Layout!

If you asked me what my favorite Doodlebug Design collection is, I would have a difficult time choosing because they are all so great! If you asked me what my favorite collection is right now, I'd say the Land That I Love collection! I knew it was a great collection when I first saw it, but I love it even more after creating with it! 

I started this layout by using the star from the Doodlebug Design Lots O' Luck Lucky Shapes Cut File to create a background pattern in my Silhouette software. I simply resized the star to about 1/4" and copy and pasted them randomly in the software. I didn't really worry too much about placement and just had fun scattering them around the page. I then used white cardstock to cut out the background and backed my page with blue and red Land That I Love patterned papers. 

Right away I knew I definitely wanted to use some of the Summer Celebration (fireworks) Patterned Paper! I used Odds & Ends Ephemera and Mini Icons Stickers to embellish above the photo. I love adding Sprinkles epoxy shapes to the die cuts for a little extra dimension.  

And I love that I was able to die cut the perfect oval tag for placing the rest of my title using the Doodle Cuts Mini Tags Dies. I was able to easily create a layered tag by cutting tags out of both blue and aqua papers. The tags have a 'stitched line' border that is die cut in to the tag. I simply just hand cut the excess off the blue tag following this border and adhered it on to the aqua one.  And OF COURSE I had to include the brand new Sunshine Alphabet Stickers on my page. To say that I love these alphabet stickers is an understatemen! 

You can see here the stitch marks on the dies and some more examples. The cute little tag possibilities are endless with the Doodle Cuts Mini Tags Set! 

The Land That I Love collection is the perfect mix of red, white, blue, aqua, and adorable graphics. Aren't the little red firecracker and blue popsicle just the cutest?! I hope you love this collection as much as I do! 

Thanks for stopping in and have a great day!

Bella Blvd Fireworks and Freedom!

Since the 4th of July is right around the corner, I pulled out the adorable Bella Blvd Fireworks & Freedom collection! I love this collection's patriotic mix of colors and the star and fireworks graphics. It was perfect for documenting this photo of my nieces wearing their favorite red, white, and blue shirts. Come take a look!

I used the super fun Bella Blvd Firework Cut File and some Fireworks & Freedom patterned papers to create my own little fireworks display down the side of the page. I embellished some of them with chipboard pieces. I love how the chipboard pops!

Eeek! Aren't these fireworks displays just so much fun?! I embellished them with chipboard pieces, ephemera pieces, and puffy stars. I love the dimension the embellishments add on top of the die cut fireworks displays!

I anchored my photo spot with various patterned papers from the collection. I then embellished my photo with the glass jar ephemera piece, Doohickey Stickers, and chipboard pieces. How cool is that large floral patterned chipboard 'freedom' title?! 

Thank you for joining me today! I hope I have inspired you to grab the Fireworks & Freedom collection for your next project. Have a great day!
