Halloween creations for Doodlebug Design DT

Hi there
 sharing some cards and a layout created with the fun doodlebug collection 
Booville , I thought I would make some cards cause those Doodle pops are just so stinking cute!

My first card I used the orange file tab card and chose the same colours
As the little boy Doodle pop
Matting the patterned paper on top then a few strips of patterned paper in the centre then a die cut doily 
Then a mini doily and added him in the centre 
Cut out the sentiment and backed it with black cardstock 

The second card I was thinking bright colours 
I used the fabulous candy patterned paper just so cute to matt on the background of my card from the card pack 
Using the same design as the first this time adding a border punched edges

And I decided to add something inside of the card
Happy Halloween and a few die cuts circles and some fussy cut pumpkins 
Along with the broom from the little girl Doodle pop

With my third card I thought it would be so cute to add that little house Doodle pop to the centre 
Of the small card from the card set using the black and white stripes for the background 
And a little sentiment at the bottom 

And I decided to make a layout using a photo of our cat Luna 
As she's sweet like candy!!

I went with a simple design and used a 4x6 photo I wanted the main focal point to be around the photo 
I started with washi tape to bring more black into the layout then adding that candy paper off centre 
And a few strips of that black and white striped patterned paper using scalloped edge scissors to add a decorative edge to the patterned paper strips then I placed my photo and matted it on 2 different patterned papers and adhered it down 

Then I decided I needed some flowers and using my cameo machine I cut 2 designs out flowers and leaves 
And backed them with patterned paper and using the Doodle pop little pumpkins I added them to the centres of the flowers I thought this would add a cute little touch and then I added the leave just tucked underneath the flowers 

Then it was time to add a title with those cute new alphabet stickers I used beetle black and the gold

And here is a close up of my photo

beautiful day layout | prima marketing

Hi there 
today I'm Sharing a layout for Finn week of my daughter eve using one of my cut files for the prima DT
Using the woodgrain as my background and using a paint brush and black gesso and dropping big droplets 

Then letting it dry before starting with the rest of my layout 
I cut one of my cut files out to use behind my photo using the black floral patterned paper behind it
To add a bit more contrast behind the cutfile 

I added a few bits of patterned paper behind my photo and then adding my embellishments around the photo 
With the the flowers and a few of the tinier flowers 
So here are some close ups of my layout

lets go explore together layout

Today I'm sharing a layout I created with the shimelle star shine 
I wanted to document a little trip my hubby and I went on .... sometimes we just drive to places we haven't been in a while just to see all the changes that has happened.

I normally use a white background but I wanted to step out of my comfort zone and use
Patterned paper for my background I think it pops with the dark border and machine stitching around it 

I used the thickers for part of my title and  I used my silhouette cameo to cut out explore

It's a simple layout 
Here is a close up of my photo I used

Dream big layout using Shimelle Star shine

Hi there,
I'm sharing a layout I created just playing around with
This paper collection from shimelle and americancrafts 
I really enjoyed the colours in this collection , they just blend so well 
And so colourful I love adding colour to my layouts 

So this layout I created is of my daughter eve when we went to bamboo land and took tons of photos 
She wanted lots of photos taken of her while we were there..

I was thinking simple design but wanted to use some of the cut apart sheets with the journaling cards and the patterned paper strips, so I decided on the floral patterned paper for top and bottom cutting one at about 3 inches and the other at one inch and the light blue strip was from the top of the perforated bit ..I liked the colour so I used it no wastage...

I used it for top and bottom that way it blends in with the top of the tag

I fussy cut the word dream out for part of my title and used the thickers to do the word big
I fussy cut the flower and camera to add some embellishments 

And used the love quote down the bottom of my layout 
I think with my next layout using this collection I might do a bigger photo and us some of my cut files 

Here is a process video of how I created this layout

Girly Layout | Doodlebug Design DT

Hi their !
sharing a layout all about me, I've chosen a photo of me when I was little feeding rainbow lorikeets 
That gives you a hint something about me....

With my layout I started with my white cardstock and using clear gesso and a stencil 
I applied it to my cardstock then sprinkled glitter over the stencilled clear gesso 
Then I matted my white cardstock on to the grey polka dot patterned paper and machine stitched around the edge 

I layered several bits of patterned paper on top of each other creating a layered affect 
And I stapled them together to keep them together 
I matted my photo on patterned paper and add a few doilies behind along with a flower tucked underneath 
The top right hand corner then I added a shape sprinkles to the center 

Using some of the pretty twine I tied a bow and added it to the top of the photo with a mini peg

I added another flower in the bottom left hand corner of the photo with some leaves cut from white cardstock 

Then lastly I added a few sequins around the background 

here is a process video of how i created my layout

My creative space

So this has been a fun and fabulous process redecorating my creative space to how I like it ..
It's still a work in progress but I have more space to create now and I'm hoping that it will be easier to take 
Photos using props in my background as it is pretty 

And yep I got my Alex draws the other day so I'm totally excited about that I've been wanting them for such a long time but i just had to have them and I will probably store adhesives in their and new product I'm working with..I'm still working on getting more storage for under my desk but that can wait a while 

And this is on the other side of my room the desk where I film my process videos so that is clean and ready for me to get creative and have fun

And because I couldn't resist sniping up some patterned papers I decided to play in my travellers notebook 

I will probably share more photos of my creative space as I clean and decorate it..
Thanks for stopping by my blog and checking it out

There is a sunshine in my soul layout | Shop and crop DT

Today I'm sharing a layout I created for shop and crop last month with lasts months kit using 
fancy pants designs - Hello sunshine 
So I thought I would scrap some of my favourite stuff that I like to take photos of, I love walking around the garden and looking at all the flowers in bloom and take photos of them ..I guess now my girls are growing up they would rather take a selfie then have their photo taken by someone else lol but anyway 

I used this fabulous flower photo on my layout 
The pinks, greens and yellow just went perfect with this patterned paper 
I love layering my white cardstock over the patterned paper giving it a border around the edge I think it helps draw the eye to the main focal point of the layout.

It's a simple design but works really well with the little cluster of patterned papers in the centre and embellishments, and I just adore that pineapple how cute the perfect pop of yellow 

I addd a few little embellishments at the top of my photo 
Tag and a tab with a bit of twine

I used a die cut for my title 

And lastly here is a look at my photo and paper cluster close up

Summer layout | Prima Marketing DT

Hi there,
I'm sharing a layout I created for prima using the st.tropez collection 
I wanted to stay with the colours pink , black and light blue for this layout 
And only adding a few of the butterfly's punched from the sand colour patterned paper 

I felt it blended with the little pops of orange in the floral patterned paper from the collection 
And I went with a black and white photo as I didn't want to much green and blue 

I used my cameo to cut one of my cut files out a big doily for the centre of the layout 
Using the light blue and I layered my photo and my fussy cut flowers on top

I stitched a border around my white cardstock after I matted it on the floral patterned paper 
And tucked more flowers just under the edge of the doily 
Then I added a few flowers and flicked some black gesso across the white cardstock 

Here is a process video of how I created this layout
