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).

Next up is Michele, hop on over to see what she has created for us today!!

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.
