Funny Bunnies layout for Doodlebug Design

Wednesday, April 7, 2021

Have you seen the new Hippity Hoppity cutfiles yet? Well I already used some and I can tell you... whatever you create with them, it's going to turn out suuuuuper duper cute...! 

Here's the layout I came up with...

If you've known me for a while, you know I love to create little characters on my layouts. I also love putting cute little bows on them and using tons and tons of flowers. 

So for this layout, I used a bunny head cutfile and cut it out three times, while using three different colors for the backgrounds and inner part of the ears. I love the Doddlebug cardstock, the colors are sooo vibrant and you always find the perfect colors for your project. 

I also used a cutfile with small flowers and leaves and cut them out, using pink, teal, yellow, white and green. 

Before adhering all the pieces together, I used some Distress Oxides in matching colors, to create shadows all around the different parts of the bunnies and flowers. I love the dimension that it gives.

I put my bunnies together and then I hand-stitched some details on the ears of the bunnies and also on the leaves and some of the flowers.

To make the bunnies even cuter, I created some bows and used Doodlebug twine in pink, yellow and teal. 
Then I started placing everything on my page that I had prepared with a bit of mixed media before. I matted my photo on a few scraps of paper from the 6x6 paper pad and also placed it on the layout. When everything looked how I liked, I started adhering everything.

Then I went through my Hippity Hoppity collection and used all the things that I thought would complete the layout. I added some carrots, jewels, glitter enamel dots, enamel chicks and doodle pops chicks and flowers. 

For my title, I used three different fonts, Skinny, Abigail and Sunshine. To make them stand out more in front of the colored background, I traced around them with matching colors. Then I splattered some paint and I was done! :)

I really hope you like the layout and are inspired to scrap your Easter/April photos using the Hippity Hoppity collection and the beautiful cutfiles.

Easter cards

Thursday, April 1, 2021

It's almost Easter and I can't wait to create more Easter projects. Even though, I don't celebrate Easter in the traditionnal, religious way, I think it's a perfect holiday to celebrate the beginning of Spring and all the happy and good things we have in our lives :) I love to use pastel colors for Easter and the new Hippity Hoppity collection has just the right mix of cute colors.

This time, I decided to create two cute cards, using the stamps and dies, glitter, sequins and my favorite patterned paper from the collection.

I don't use stamps very often and since I prefer to create layouts, I'm not used to use them. But the stamps and matching dies in the collection are so cute, that I thought I absolutely needed to use them. 

So I started by stamping out the images that I wanted to have for my cards, with black ink and then I painted them using watercolors.

While those were drying, I cut out rectangles from white cardstock and my favorite patterned paper from the collection. I splattered some paint on the white cardstock to create texture and interest on the background, then I adhered it to the patterned paper. 

When my little icons were dry, I cut them, using the matching dies. 

To give the little critters a cute little touch, I added some glitter to some parts of the bodies and to the bow on the basket of eggs. It's looks amazing... I LOVE holographic glitter!! :)

While that was drying, I adhered my background to card bases in blue and pink, that I had created using Doodlebug cardstock. I then thought that it needed more detail and I decided to stitch all around the white cardstock, using a color changing, pastel thread. 

I added my little images to the cards using foam squares, to make them pop, and also added a sentiment from the Chit Chat die cuts. 
Finally, I stitched on some sequins with a french knot. 

I really love how the cards turned out.
They are super simple, but the stitched border, glitter and sequin details, make them look so cute and perfect. 

Thank you so much for stopping by and I really hope you like the cards and are inspired to create some too.
