Happy St. Patrick's Day - Doodlebug Design Team Project

Happy St. Patrick's Day! One of my favorite holidays, good food, and drinks with the company of my family and friends, telling old stories and creating new ones, so fun! Well, today I have this cute Irish wall decor project to share with you using some Doodlebug Design products.

To create the slats I used one of the side pieces of the wooden crate from Lori Whitlock's shop. These are perfect for any 3D sign, I resized one making sure the words and cut files would fit and then duplicated twice. I also made two smaller ones for the back which holds the three slats together.

To decorate I used some of the petite prints, grasshopper daisy-stripe, lily-white swiss dot and mandarin gingham-grid for the top layer of the slats. The letters used are from the Abigail limeade sticker set, I totally forgot to add the apostrophe but I've since added it. 🙂

All the cut files are from the Happy Go Lucky Bundle, you can get this bundle from Lori Whitlock's shop.

The rest of Doodlebug supplies used are - Tangerine Daisy Stripe - Limeade Gingham Grid - Marigold Textured Cardstock - Beetle Black Textured Cardstock - Lily White Textured Cardstock - Cupcake Textured Cardstock - Lily White Sprinkles

Hope you have a Healthy and Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Slainte Banner - Doodlebug Design Team Project

St. Patrick's Day is such a fun holiday in my family, we love to celebrate with good eats, drink and of course decorations! Through the years I've accumulated quite a collection but I always like to make something new.

This year I created this Slainte banner, using the top hat from the Happy Go Lucky Bundle from Lori Whitlock's shop. I uploaded the svg file to Cricut design space and resized it so a 1 1/2" scalloped circle would fit nicely on the hat.

This way I could use the limeade abigail stickers which fit perfectly on the scalloped circles.

Some of the other Doodlebug supplies I used - 12 x 12 Spring Things paper - Grasshopper Daisy-Stripe Petite Print - Bubblebee Texture Cardstock - Lily White Textured Cardstock - Beetle Black Textured Cardstock - Lily White Sprinkles - Doodlebug Limeade Twine.

Missing You - Lori Whitlock Lace Tree Card

Here's a quick and simple card using the lace 5 x 5 tree card cut file from Lori's shop. I think this is such a pretty cut design, I used a piece of burlap for a neutral look but a pop of color would look great also or even a white embossed background. The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp's Handwritten Floral Greetings set and tags are from My Creative Time. The card was cut out on my Cricut Maker.

So Punny Chit Chat Cards - Doodlebug Design Team Project

The So Punny chit chat pack is filled with adorable puns and more. Pair them with some odds & ends or Doodlebug cut files to make some of the cutest greeting cards ever.

The chit chats really make it so quick and easy to put cards together. It's nice to have a pack of speech bubbles to match the collection and there is a bunch in the pack a total of 93 die cut pieces.

I really love how this plate card came out and it was super simple to put together, I just used a couple of circle dies. The eggs and bacon are all from the odds & ends pack and the little hearts are from the tiny heart sprinkles pack. I cut the fork and knife on lily white gingham-linen paper and tied with bumblebee twine. Paper is I'm daisy for you and sea glass textured cardstock.

I used a box card die to create this card and added the little radishes from the odds & ends pack. The little hearts on the sides are also from the pack and the heart on the best friend sticker is from the hearts sprinkle shapes pack. Paper is from the so punny 12 x 12 collection and limeade gingham-linen petite print.

This juice box is a cut file from the so punny svg collection, you can get the file from Lori Whitlock's shop. Paper used, lily white gingham-linen, ladybug swiss dot, cupcake dot-grid and limeade gingham-linen petite prints and some raspberry and sea glass textured cardstock. I used a limeade button and limeade twine.

Gummi Bear Gift Set - Doodlebug Design Team Project

Matching gift sets are one of my favorite things to create. I think adding a bag or box of sweets that match the card you are giving just makes it a little more special.

To create this gift set I used some of the cut files from the so punny svg collection, you can get these all together in one set or individually from Lori Whitlock's shop. Doodlebug cut files are also available at the Silhouette Design Store.

I used the love title cut file, mirrored the base piece and welded them together to form my card. I cut out each gummi bear and matching letter with paper from the 12 x 12 so punny collection and one sheet from the 6 x 6 pad. The background is lily white gingham-linen petite print. I added some tiny hearts, bubblegum twine and a banner from the chit chat pack.

When I saw the gummi bears in the so punny set I knew I wanted to make a bag using the cut files. I used the I'm daisy for you from the 12 x 12 paper pack to match the card and some pistachio gingham-linen petite print. The bag itself is a freebie from svgcuts called bunny gift bag. The top of the darling little envelope cut file keeps the bag closed perfectly. I finished up with some bubblegum twine. a glitter sprinkle for the nose and a heart from the sweet heart sprinkles assortment pack.

I hope you've enjoyed this gummi bear gift set, have a wonderful day!

Camera Treat Cup Card - Lori Whitlock Creative Team Project

Hello, I have a Lori Whitlock project tutorial to share with you today. I made this cute camera treat cup card using two files from Lori's shop, looks like a lot of steps but very simple to put together.

This was such a fun project to make and can be used for any card to add some yummy treats.

I started with the heart shaped box with window from Lori's shop, you can get it from the Silhouette Design Store here.

I ungrouped and deleted all except these three pieces.

Zooming in real close I aligned these two pieces along the score marks. I wanted one piece instead of two since the heart box will be sized smaller.

Selecting both I replicated and mirrored above and moved the two on the top  a couple of arrow clicks down. Depending on how wide you want the box you can move this as much as you want.

I selected all the pieces, welded and grouped them all together, I then grouped with the heart.

Next, I worked on the camera, I used the one from the travel icons set, you can get it here also from the Silhouette Design Store. I put it together on my mat and resized it to about 5.5". Two of the pieces I didn't use so I deleted them.

Now I took the heart box and resized both pieces together so the heart fits inside the circle. I made a duplicate of the heart and ungrouped to just use the bigger layer, this is what I used to make the heart cutout from the camera pieces.

I duplicated the whole camera and did a subtract all, I did this a couple of times deleting what pieces I had already made cutouts from.

As you can see, I ended up with all these pieces. the upper right piece is just a duplicate of the camera with the top cut off, that will go inside the card to hold the slider.

The slider is just a square and two rounded squares welded together. You just have to make sure it covers the heart opening and is smaller than the extra piece that goes inside.

I replicated and mirror left the camera bottom layer with the heart cutout, moved it one arrow click over and welded to create my card base. I did a release to get rid of the heart cutout on the left side which would be the back of the card.

Here's the box pieces cutout, I molded the side a little and used score tape which made it quick and easy to put together.

The pink and white layers should slide right over and glue to the bottom tabs, just make sure the tabs are going out and not in.

The inside piece for the slider just needs tape around three sides so the slider can move in and out.

As you can see I filled the cup with m&m's and pushed the slider in.

Here's a closer look at the card, it's a little front heavy so it doesn't stand very well with the candy inside but it's super cute. Paper used is Doodlebug's Cream & Sugar.
