Hippity Hoppity collection by Doodlebug

Sunday, March 14, 2021

Who's excited for spring and Easter and pastel and everything bright and fun? Definitely me!! :)

Here's my first layout using Hippity Hoppity, the new Doodlebug Easter collection. 

For this layout, I wanted to use the collection, without using too many Easter items. So to start, I created a circle with my gelatos, using pink, green, yellow and orange. While I was doing that, I let my Silhouette cut out some Doodlebug cutfiles. I used some different leaves and a tiny flower included in a tree cutfile. Before placing everything on the circle, I sprinkled it with white acrylic paint.

Then I placed all my leaves and my flowers down, creating a wreath. I love all the cute colors. I used some patterned papers form the 6x6 Hippity Hoppity Paper Pad and also some from the Dot-Stripe petite prints 6x6 paper pad. 

Then I used the Jewels to put in the centers of the little flowers. I didn't put one in all of them, but a lot of them. I also used some of the glitter sprinkles, tiny hearts from the mini icon stickers, flowers and a sun from the die cut pieces and the "Hop On" doodle-pop.

The photo I used is one I took last year, during one of the workshops I held at my house. I matted it on leftover pieces of patterned paper and placed it next to the wreath. 

For the title, I used  die-cuts from the Chit-Chat icons and pink Abigail Alphas. I finished the layout by sprinkling gold paint all over. 

Thank you so much for stopping by, see you very soon! :)

Made with Love collection by Doodlebug

I'm so excited to be sharing my very first project with you today. 

The Made with Love collection was the perfect collection to start with, since I'm totally in the mood for hearts and sweetness. Take a look at my layout featuring a bit of everything from this amazing collection. 

I wanted to showcase my style by creating big hand-stitched embellishments. So I went through the Doodlebug cutfiles and chose the milk bottle and the cookies. I LOVE Doodlebug cutfiles, they're the cutest. I cut out the different pieces using Doodlebug cardstock and then I adhered them together. I hand-stitched around the borders using matching thread. 

After doing some mixed media on my background sheet and matting my photo with some scraps of paper, I placed everything on the layout to see how I wanted to display each piece. When I was happy with how it looked, I adhered everything, using liquid glue and foam squares, to create dimension. For the title, I used the Abigail Alphas. 

I wanted to have some splashes of milk popping out from the bottle, so I drew some on top of the bottle, but also in other places, to create balance. Then I went through all the embellishments from the collection and chose the pieces I wanted to use. I could spend hours choosing stuff and adding finishing touches... haha :) the cookie die-cuts and enamel sprinkles are to die for. But somehow I was able stop myself at some point. 

I hope you like the layout and are inspired to use this adorable collection and to check out the Doodlebug cutfiles. Thank you for stopping by, see you soon.
