Birthday Girl!

Hey crafty friends!! Candace from Scrappin' 2 Little Princesses here today sharing a layout using Doodlebug's awesome chevron sugared cardstock. This cardstock is AMAZING!! Since it comes in all the great Doodlebug colors you can find a chevron to match any project you are working on! I am so in love with the Sugar Shoppe collection that I just had to use it along with matching chevron cardstock. 

I am so in love with the pattern, texture and sparkle of this paper! I wanted to keep my layout very simple since the chevron is so great on its own. 

So YUMMY, right?! It is the most beautiful, glittery paper I have ever seen (told you I was in love!). 

I used some foam stickers on the back of my 'Birthday' stickers to make them stand out. I love how the grey title looked over the aqua chevron. 

I made a fun cluster of elements in the corner in my layout using foam stickers of various thicknesses to create a lot of dimension and interest. Here is a side view, making the dimension easier to see:

I love that this cardstock can be incorporated into every single project! Make sure you take a peek at all the great colors it comes in. 
Enjoy all the inspiration and great ideas the Doodlebug ladies have for you using this yummy cardstock!

Doodlebug Treat Bags

Hey everyone! Today I am sharing a couple cute little cards I made with the awesome Doodlebug treat bags. They are the perfect size to hold a gift card and I know a lot of families having babies right now so I dove head first into the Sugar & Spice and Snips & Snails Collections. 

I love how quick and easy it is to pull cards together with some Doodlebug paper, embellishments and a couple of metal dies! These cards took no time at all. 

I trimmed down the treat bags by cutting a bit off the top then dressed it up using a tag, paper bow (made using a die from My Creative Time) and some Doodlebug cardstock stickers. 

I cut a piece of cardstock that would fit perfectly into the treat bag and used a gift card holder die (Jaded Blossom) to add the perfect spot to place a gift card. 

To add dimension to my cards, I used foam stickers to adhere the stickers and treat bag. 

The treat bags come in a variety of super fun colors and patterns that coordinate with tons of the Doodlebug collections

These treat bags are so fun and I can think of so many ways they can be used! My next project with them will be an advent calendar so stay tuned! Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you have been inspired!

Many Thanks! Paper Smooches Challenge

Hey Friends!! I hope you all had a great time celebrating Canada Day and the 4th of July! We have had great weather here and have been loving being outside swimming, running through the sprinkler and all the other great perks that come with summer!! 

I have had a little spare time lately so I have been playing a lot with my Paper Smooches stamps! I love their little images so much. They are so cute and super easy to either color or paper piece. 

I colored all my little hampsters using Spectrum Noir markers and fussy cut around them. I have been wanting to get myself some of the dies that coordinate with the stamps but have been waiting a Paper Smooches sale. I have a loooooong list of goodies in my shopping cart in their store so I'm chomping at the bit to place an order! :) 

I used a sentiment from the Word Salad stamp set and added a couple Doodlebug enamel hearts and washi tape to accent. I also used one of the great border dies from My Creative time to create a scalloped edge on my patterned paper. 

Here is what I used to create my card... 
- Paper Smooches stamp sets: Word Salad & Party Posse
- My Creative Time: Fun Stitched Edges
- Doodlebug: Sprinkles & Washi Tape
- Echo Park digital paper
- Spectrum Noir markers

I am entering this card into the Anything Goes challenge over on the Paper Smooches blog! 

Thanks for stopping by today!!
