Merry Woofmas with Bella Blvd!

I love everything about the Bella Blvd Santa Squad collection, especially the little dog graphics! They are perfect for documenting a couple Christmas photos of my Cairn Terrier, Pixie! And I am thrilled that Bella Blvd offers cut files now because I had so much fun working with them on this layout! 

At first I was going to create a layout using the entire Bella Blvd Bird Wreath Christmas cut file, but then I decided the bottom part of it would make a fun accent to the top of my layout. I then embellished this piece  with Bella Pops pieces, Ephemera Icons, and Epoxy Hearts. I love the fun unexpected detail it adds to the page.

I used the Bella Blvd Triangle Trees Cut File to create a large tree on my page. I decorated my paper tree with Santa Squad Ephemera Icons, Doohickey Stickers, Gingerbread Acrylic Shapes, and some Snow Fun Epoxy Snowflake Shapes. I usually want to just hoard the Bella Pops because they are THAT cute, but it made me feel so good to actually use one here! I love the Dachshund Through the Snow doggie Bella Pop under the Christmas tree! 

I used the fun Bella Blvd Merry Word Cut File and a Bella Besties patterned paper for part of the title. I then embellished this section with more adorable Ephemera Icons pieces, Chipboard Shapes, and Epoxy Heart Shapes. Did you notice the little Epoxy Candy Cane Shape I added to the dachshund's mouth?

Thanks for stopping in today. I hope I have inspired you to grab some of the adorable Santa Squad collection and document some Christmas pictures of your squad...fur or no fur!

Merry Disney Christmas with Doodlebug Design!

I couldn't wait to play with the Doodlebug Design Christmas Magic Present Cut File when I first saw it. And of course I paired it with the Christmas Magic collection, which was perfect for documenting a couple photos from our Christmastime trip to Disney World. I had so much fun creating this colorful page! 
I started by using one of my favorite papers from this collection, Plaidsome Tidings, for my background. I used the adorable Boughs of Holly Washi Tape to make a festive border around my white background. I then used the cute Doodlebug Design Christmas Magic Present Cut File and Doodlebug cardstock to cut out presents in coordinating colors. I embellished the presents with Odds & Ends pieces, This & That Stickers, Chit Chat pieces, and epoxy stickers. 

I embellished these other presents with Mini Icons Stickers, epoxy stickers, and Odds & Ends die cut shapes. I then used a die cut from the Chit Chat pack for a quick page title and embellished it with Teensy Type alphabet stickers and an epoxy candy cane sticker. 
I love how well the Doodlebug Design cardstock works with my electronic die cut machine. It cuts so smoothly and doesn't tear or rip like some other cardstocks do! And I just love the rainbow of Christmas presents on this page! I can't decide which one is my favorite, can you?! 

Thanks for joining me today! I hope I have inspired you to grab some of the Christmas Magic collection and (if you have a die cut machine) the Christmas Present Cut File and create your own rainbow of presents!

Here Comes Santa Claus with Doodlebug Design!

The Doodlebug Design Christmas Magic collection is just simply adorable and perfect for documenting Christmas memories. I love the mix of yellow, pink, and aqua combined with the traditional red and green colors. And I couldn't wait to create a page with the adorable die cut Santas from the Odds & Ends die cut pack! 

I started with a piece of Lemon Floral-Graph Petite Prints patterned paper at the top of the page. I wanted to loosely create a 'scene' where the Santa in the chimney die cut was at the top of the page like he is up on the roof. I embellished around him with adorable elves Mini Icons Stickers. The Tiny Heart Shape Sprinkles add a sweet little accent. I then used the Abigail Alphabet Stickers in Bon Bon to start my title with 'Here Comes...'.

And of course I had to include one of my favorite die cuts in the Odds & Ends pack ~ the banner! I embellished it with the Holly & Pine and Peppermint Twist Enamel Shape Stickers for a little fun added dimension. I then embellished around the photos with more Odds & Ends pieces and Tiny Heart Shape Sprinkles stickers.

For my 'inside the house' scene below I then used the Christmas tree cut file from the Doodlebug Design Santa in Car Cut File and my die cut machine to cut out the tree. I embellished it with Odds & Ends shapes, Enamel Stickers Shapes, Mini Icons Stickers, and Teensy Type Alphabet Stickers. Isn't that winking Santa Claus die cut just the cutest?! 
Thanks for stopping in today! I hope I have inspired you to grab some of the Christmas Magic collection and document some of your favorite Christmas memories!
