Simply Spring Shaped Cards - Doodlebug Design Team Project

I had so much fun putting these shaped cards together using the new Simply Spring paper collection and cut files. Love all the colorful flowers, adorable little insects and pretty papers!


The cut files come in svg format sold at Lori Whitlock's online store and studio format at the Silhouette Design Store.


For all the cards I used the svg files, laying out my design in silhouette studio business addition so I can save it as an svg to import into cricut design space to cut out on my cricut maker. I created an offset of the whole design this is the base of my shaped card. Sometimes I will mirror up the offset and nudge it down and weld to create the whole card but for very uneven tops I just duplicate the shape and score about a 1/2" down from the top and glue it to the other base piece.


I think this is my favorite, I love this bouquet in jar cut file. Doodlebug's colorful textured cardstock and the pretty plaid paper from simply spring 12 x 12 pack really makes this card pop!


I love this one too, instead of the lavender flowers going up I reversed them to flow down the can and added a couple more flowers to fill in the empty space.

Easter Treat Wraps - Lori Whitlock Creative Team Project

Hi there, with Easter right around the corner I thought I'd make some of these adorable treat wraps for a quick and easy project. I had a couple of slim bags that I filled with some jelly beans, but these wraps can be used with any kind of treat.


The labels were print n cuts matted to a scalloped rectangle. The paper used, Echo Park's Easter Wishes designed by Lori matches the cute little labels. You can get these wraps as a bundle at Lori's shop here or individually. Here's the three I used, Wrap Easter Egg, (svg, silhouette), Wrap Easter Chick, (svg, silhouette) and Wrap Easter Bunny, (svg, silhouette).

Lori Whitlock's March 2019 Blog Hop


Hi there, welcome to the March Hop!
Today I'm sharing a print n cut card and gift bag for St Patrick's Day!


Sometimes I just don't have the time to cut and put together a card so I'll do a lot of print n cuts with svg files. Here I used the unicorn face shamrock, (svg, silhouette) with a sentiment from the pop-up box unicorn card, (svg, silhouette). For the bag, I used the 3d treat bag, (silhouette) and St. Patrick's day icons, (svg, silhouette).

The little bag I'll fill with some mint candies to give to a special someone on St. Patrick's Day! I also created a card using Doodlebug's new stamp set rainbow and unicorns, these new sets are adorable!


The shaped card I made using the lots o' luck - beer glasses cut file, (svgsilhouette) I added the happy little leprechaun from the icon stickers, speech bubble from the this and that stickers and a couple of gold sprinkles.


I used one of the lots o' luck shamrocks to make the cutout window in the bag. I used another leprechaun from the icon stickers, odds & ends speech bubble, gold sprinkles, and limeade twine.


Here is the card from the rainbows and unicorn stamp set, love this set perfect with this rainbows end paper from the lots o' luck 12 x 12 paper pack.

You're Space-cial - Doodlebug Far Out Stamp Set

Finally found some time to play with Doodlebug's new stamp sets. They are all absolutely adorable, the card below was created using stamps from the Far Out set which coordinates with the So Much Pun collection.


I used some distress inks, mustard seed, picked raspberry, seedless preserves, chipped sapphire and black soot to create the galaxy background adding water spray and white paint splatter.

Leprechaun Trap - Doodlebug Design Team Project

St. Patrick's Day is definitely a well celebrated holiday among my family members we are all about wearing green and drinking Guinness!! So I'm always excited for a Doodlebug St. Paddy's collection and Lots o' Luck is simply adorable!!


For my project, I used the gold coin inn svg file, I think this collection is absolutely perfect for this leprechaun trap, I really love how it came out.


I didn't have wood to make the ladder so I just used some of Doodlebug's gold sugar coated cardstock and it really came out great. I cut two pieces 1 1/4" x 6" and scored it down the long way 1/4" four times, then I punched 5 holes an inch apart on each piece. I cut another strip 1 3/4" and rolled up about an inch each piece tightly to glue into each hole to form the ladder rungs.


Since the inn is supposed to be a leprechaun trap and I didn't have a coin I cut out two gold circles and used the gold shamrock sticker instead, also I used the st. patrick's day sticker instead of the sign that comes with the project.

Cherish - Spellbinders January Club Kit

I'm so happy to have a snow day today it gave me a chance to make something with my Spellbinders January Large Die and Card Kit of the month supplies. I believe my February one will be here sometime this week so I definitely wanted to get something made from this past one.


I absolutely love the papers in the card kit and this small flower print is one of my favorites, the colors are so pretty. I wanted to match the grey-green of the print so I used ice spruce distress ink with a background stamp from My Creative Time. The patterned paper, sentiment, and sequins are all from the card kit and the die cuts are from the large die of the month.

Ooh La La Gift Set - Doodlebug Design Team Project

This set using Doodlebug Design French Kiss collection would make a great gift for any occasion throughout the year.


The beautiful bright papers and lovely designs in this collection really made this project pop, it was so much fun to put together!


The poodle sticker from the mini icons sticker sheet was my total inspiration for making this shaped dress card. I used the girl's dress and boys scarf from the french kiss couples svg file to create the dress, just a couple of alterations using silhouette studio.


I love the Ooh La La from the chit chat pack, it was the perfect embellishment for the front of this bag.

Clematis Treat Bag - Dreaming Tree

I download this adorable svg treat bag freebie over at the Dreaming Tree Store and I just love it! There is a layer for the flower that goes underneath the black outline but I did a release compound path to the outline in Silhouette Studio so I could color each individual piece and inlay them into the outline once it was glued onto the bag. I used distress inks and sprayed with some water and did the same to the bag for a worn tattered look.

French Kiss Card Trio - Doodlebug Design Team Project

Here's a couple of cards I made using Doodlebug's French Kiss paper collection and cutting files. Though these are perfect for Valentine's day they can also be used throughout the year which makes the French Kiss such a versatile collection.


The cutting files can be bought in svg format from Lori Whitlock's shop, when they are released and also in studio format for the Silhouette machines.


I made a cut out in the middle of the flower circle using the candy box heart svg and then did a cutout of the I and you from the notes and paper file.


Here I used the chocolates 2 cut files, you can't really see in the photo but I used some glossy accents on the candies, gives them a nice shine.


For this card, I used an svg file which already had the love front panel made I just added you as a cutout. I find it easier to do cutouts of smaller letters and just add paper to the back, don't have to line them up!!

Gnome Gift Set - Lori Whitlock Creative Team Project

I thought the No 10 Gnome Holiday card from Lori's shop was so adorable and didn't get a chance to use it for Christmas so I figured I use it for Valentine's day.


I wanted to make a gift set so I thought the k cup ornament could look like a little mushroom house with a few added elements.


For the sentiment I used the nested hearts and typed up the saying and did a print and cut.


Here's a closer look at the k cup, I added the circle cut outs and adjusted the width. The windows are from the gingerbread house favor box. You can also get all these files at the silhouette design store, gnome card, k cup ornament, nested hearts and gingerbread house favor box. All paper used is from Doodlebug Design.
