An altered embroidery hoop with brand NEW Doodlebug ‘Flower Box’ collection

Hello crafty friends!! This week on the Doodlebug Blog we are sharing some amazing projects with the NEW Flower Box collection!

A gorgeous color palette with a sweet touch of ‘melon’ which I love! Such a rarely seen color it seems… at least on papers. You’ll also get a yummy woodgrain fix with this collection and the several different colored woodgrain prints! It’s all around a happy, awesome collection!

I created a altered embroidery hoop! I love doing these right now and have two more that you’ll see eventually.. for other DT work. Anyhow, check out this cuteness!

Pretty cute, huh? Now it’s hanging in my craft room as a decoration… too bad it’s not bringing us spring, we’re suppose to get snow tomorrow!

Be sure to swing by the Doodlebug blog and see what the other talented DTers have made! So much inspiration!

And lucky you.. ALL four new Doodblebug collections are available at Two Peas! CHECK IT OUT!

 

OK.. see you later! Oh! I posted my new What I am Working With Wednesday video last night.. you can see that HERE!

A chick and a winner!

That blog title Sounds like a weird children’s book.. lol

So, I have a quick blog post today to announce the winner of the Echo Park kit from the blog hop! As always, we had a great turn-out and we are so glad you all joined us this month! I also have a cute ‘one piece’ chick box to share!

First up.. the box. Because it’s so darn cute! This little guy was created with SVG Cuts’ new kit of the week, ‘Egg Hunt’. This is this weeks FREE GIFT with your purchase of $9.98 or more. Use offer code FREEGIFT at checkout. GET IT HERE! Includes a lifetime warranty of happiness and the satisfaction of knowing you can always win over your friends and family with your amazing craft skills thanks to SVG Cuts… and the dirty looks from the other ‘room moms’ because you’re more awesome than they are is an added bonus!

 

Now that I’ve thrown my sales pitch at you.. here’s the little chick. His name is Gus.

Gus does’t normally have a bow on him… or feet (which I added from THIS kit) He’s cute without the bow.. BUT.. put one on him and shy little Gus quickly turns into overly confident ‘Gustavo’..

Jeez.. please excuse Gustavo.

Ya put a bow-tie on a chick and he gets all impudent ‘n stuff.

This little guy..

“What’s that, Gus?.. er.. ‘Gustavo’ ”…

“You’re not a little guy?…

“You’ll peck my eyes out!?”

 

Um.. Sooo.. this big ‘ol tough guy with feathers of steel was created with Doodlebug Designs goodies! I used the orange and yellow ‘petite prints’ basics. The black mini brads were perfect sized ‘eyes’. The bow-tie is a FREE FILE and cut with a blue polka dot pattern from ‘Hello Spring’. Even the twine for his little fluff is from Doodlebug!

“Hush, Gustavo!.. Be glad I didn’t give you a comb-over!….. perhaps a mullet?..”

In case you didn’t hear Gustavo, he was asking why I didn’t give him a Justin Beiber hairstyle. ‘Gustavo Fever’ just doesn’t have the same ring to it.

 

OK.. enough with that chicken nugget!!

“You heard what I said, GUS!… that’s right, NUGGET”

Here we are, another round of a fabulous design team blog hop with the Carta Bella girls! I hope you’ve been inspired and have loved the projects you’ve seen so far!

Today I have a vacation photo box to share. This was super quick and fun to create. I used the AMAZING ‘Well Traveled’ collection for this. This collection has got to be one of the best travel lines I’ve seen! I love the colors and vintage feel to the graphics. To create this I used a Lori Whitlock cutting file which you can find HERE.

Purty darn cool! And totally useful! You can make several ‘themes’ to store extra photos that may not make it to scrapbook albums and such. Perfect!

I am pretty much in love with this camera die cut. I got the shape in the Silhouette store. Added the ‘New York’ sticker with an Epiphany Crafts epoxy over it to create a ‘lens’. Then I added on some tiny brads and gray cord to make a camera strap. Um, yeah. Hello awesome idea! So happy to have met you!  You should come around more often!

*high five* for scrumptious embellies! I am so into brads right now. I think I might just start calling my husband Brad. Yeah. That’ll work.

Did’ja know Carta Bella’s ‘Well Traveled’ collection has WASHI TAPE! I added a little taste of it here and there to my box. Those cool roller stamps (arrows and cameras) are from Glitz Design. Really neat and I am glad I snagged them!

 

Alrighty, now for my BONUS giveaway. I am giving away a Well Traveled 6×6 paper pad, layered stickers, AND a pack of three washi tapes! I will chose a winner from my blog comments AND Facebook page.

Showing off some gorgeous LYB ‘Just Because’ collection!

 

*** LOOKING FOR THE ECHO PARK HOP? Click HERE! ***

Hey there! I’m back with Little Yellow Bicycle as a ‘Just Because’ cycling team member! You can check out the blog post HERE. Scroll through the LYB blog and see all the fabulous designs by the DT and cycling team! So much inspiration.

This collection is quite lovely! It has a unique color palette.. A bit different from the ‘norm’. A coral-ish red, navy blue, small touches of lavender… really nice!

JB-30

 

The moment I saw it all in person I knew I wanted to make something with a coffee or tea theme. I am ALWAYS inspired by the theme of papers/stickers. So, I made a tea cup! Almost looks real with the added saucer!

I added a dowel with some pretty rosettes, chipboard, 3D bow and stick pins. Fun, huh? You can make one too with the SVG Cuts Tea For You and Me kit. Add some bags of tea, cookies, etc. for a perfect gift!

 

Next up is a cute and simple vellum strip card. I LOVE LYB’s vellum strips!

I love how much there is to play with in the Just Because collection! You really can take it so many different ways from girlie and cute, vintage, Valentine-ish, etc.

Whatcha’ think? You can view the entire collection HERE. 

 

Before you leave, I want to mention that LYB is having a NATURALS contest! Remember the adorable altered pitcher I shared recently showing off the Naturals? Hopefully that sent you all running to your nearest craft store to get some for yourself! If so, take a look at the contest! It runs through March 17th so you have plenty of time to enter! MORE DETAILS HERE.

OK, friends.. see you later!! Happy crafting!

Echo Park ‘SCOOT’ Birthday Truck

I have been so excited to share this project using Echo Park’s SCOOT collection!

 

I created this back for EP’s booth at winter CHA… It’s really hard for me to not share things right away! Anyone else like that?

Scoot is such an amazing boys collection! I was SO inspired by the cute papers and stickers. I thought a cute birthday boy centerpiece would be fantastic.. but what shall I make?

Of course I fall back to my trusty SVG Cuts files! The Ryan’s Play Date SVG Kit has a perfectly adorable little truck.. and then my birthday boy truck was born! (After a rough 1.5hrs of labor.. pain med free, too!.. LOL!)

So, here it is.. vroom-vroooom!

  • DESIGN NOTE: Cut the SVG Cuts truck files AS SIZED. I added a button over each wheel and little star stickers on the headlights. You can also use acetate for the windows so they are clear!

CUTE, CUUUUTE! Seriously. What little boy wouldn’t LOVE this?!

I added some gumballs in the back.. The back of the truck is perfect for little treats.

I wanted to jazz it up even more, so I added a rosette onto a dowel and adhered it inside the truck. Added a touch of twine, buttons, ‘flying’ plane, and some more stickers..  The perfect finishing touch!

When I was working on this project I thought of all the cute party decor you could make! Hats, cupcake wrappers, etc. You could get the digital collection and print away all the papers you’d need! I seriously love how Echo Park papers are just SO inspiring to me.

Before I let you go, I wanted to invite you to join the Echo Park design team next Monday, FEB 18TH! The DT will be showing off some fun projects with the latest Echo Park collections! Hope you’ll join us!

Have a great weekend! My birthday is tomorrow so my weekend should be FUN! I am turning 30.. eeek! THIRTY!

Yummy treat ideas for Valentines Day!

Hello there!

What an eventful weekend I had! I mentioned the other day that my hubby was sick.. well he ended up going to the hospital and being admitted! He’s doing much better now and he is home and resting. He should be going back to work tomorrow so that’s good. Needless to say I didn’t have time to fiddle with my blog over the weekend.

Anyhow, today I am sharing TWO delicious Doodlebug treat packaging ideas! The design team has been very busy with the new Lovebirds collection! Hopefully you’ve had time to stop by the BLOG and see them all.. LOTS of inspiration going on over there.

First off I have a darling lollipop treat box. I found these adorable little heart shaped lollipops and knew I just had to make a project with them.. plus I don’t care for suckers, so the chance of me eating them are slim to none! When I buy M&M’s, etc. for ‘projects’…. yeah… ‘projects’…

‘Project’ GET IN MAH BELLAY!.. LOL!

I wish I had some fake candy that looked REAL. Heck, I would probably still find a way to eat it! lol. Anyhow, back to the lollipop box.. I used the cute ‘glove box’ file from SVG Cuts’ Mother’s Garden kit. I added on a cute scalloped window so you can see the cute lollipops inside. I decorated it and it came together as this:

Back pats to me for the whole photo staging too.. I think it came out super cute! I actually made that heart banner in the back with die cut felt hearts.

I really love the scalloped edges on this box.

For the lollipops I added some washi tape to the stick.. so cute! Yes, Doodlebug has WASHI TAPE now! And it’s awesome!!! The little love notes were perfect tags to add on. With a little twine bow and a small button.. too cute!

 

Next is this sweet cupcake baggie. This is a cutting file from the Silhouette store. I added on some heart jewels to look like little sprinkles. I can not get over how many embellishments Doodlebug makes. I have it all set up in my Ikea cart and it looks like a miniature candy store with all the COLOR.

So here’s my cute cupcake treat bag:

Looks good enough to eat, right?.. nom-nom-nom.

There’s some more of that cute washi tape! I am a sucker for polka dots!

 

So what do ya think? Have you snagged yourself some Doodlebug Lovebirds yet? There’s only TEN days left until Valentines day!  My hubby and I don’t really play into the ‘Hallmark holiday’ crap.. BUT I do play it up for my kids! I wasn’t able to do their little ‘love party’ for them this past weekend.. sick hubby.. plus my oldest daughter was with her dad and I don’t want her left out, so.. it’s on for this coming weekend! I will be sure to share pics for those that care to see what we are up to over here.

Alrighty.. see ya next time! (if you missed my layout I posted Friday, be sure to check it out!) Have a great week my crafty friends! See ya!

Vintage Birthday Toy Train – An SVG Cuts project

I am WAY too excited to share this with you all! I’m totally looking like a crazy baboon jumping around right now from excitement.. sans the funky red bottoms they have. (What’s up with that anyways?)

OK. I lie. I am just sitting here sipping on coffee and itching to run off and play with some new Doodlebug goodies I just got delivered!

 

So.. let’s get rolling with this blog post, shall we?

I created this super, SUPER cute ‘vintage’ birthday toy train for SVG Cuts! This thing seriously has to be one of my top 10 favorite projects… and from the looks of it on SVG Cuts Facebook page, you all love it too! Cheers to that! *holds coffee up* *cling* (not too hard though, don’t wanna spill even a drip of this precious Starbucks white mocha!). So, for those that are not on Facebook, or may have missed it.. here it is!

TA-DA!!!

All together now…. “Awwwwww!”

This giraffe is just so cute! Mary from SVG Cuts makes the cutest little cutting files! I actually requested the ‘jungle’ themed Wild Child collection awhile back.. I started something with them and just wasn’t feeling it. I am glad I was finally able to use them in a project!

Everything is connected with a mustard yellow jute cord and buttons.

I love these little star balloons!  You can have one if you’d like!

This lion is just hanging out on the back! Probably hoping there’s a fat juicy steak in the gift box!

Funny thing about this lion, he only has one eye.

I know what you’re saying… “No… I see TWO!”.. Crazy Tamara!

SEE! lol! I only had 3 dark brown buttons so either the giraffe or lion had to go without one.

I’m sorry Mr. Lion. Doesn’t mean I love you any less! I knew with that gorgeous flowing mane that you’d be able to pull off the one-eyed look!

Thankfully my Photoshop skills kicked in and I just Photoshopped another right on!

I’ve got skills, peeps! Least I know if I ever lose an eye I can just clone one back on in Photoshop… Wish this worked in real life, lol!

 

So what do you think? This was quite easy to make and if you’d like to make one you’ll need the following SVG Cuts kits/collections

All the cutting sizes and instructions can be found HERE The GORGEOUS paper collection is from October Afternoon ‘Cakewalk’. ADORBS!

That’s it! How perfect would this be for a centerpiece? And it’s a useful centerpiece.. you can put little candies, vodka soaked gummy bears, or Jello shots in the train cars.

So, I have been sick over a week now and haven’t really been in the crafty mood. So this on is simple.. and this post is short and to the point (If you’re a regular reader of mine, you know I love to ramble, lol). I am FINALLY on the tail end of this sickness and am happily crafting and prepping for all the fun in store for the next week! Sooooo stinkin’ excited for Christmas! Santa went a bit crazy again… and I don’t care! Every year starting in October I give myself the good ‘ol.. “You WILL behave this Christmas. You will NOT go overboard” talk.. Pssssssh. I’ve come to realize this is just ‘me’ and it would take a darn near miracle for me to not be a crazed Christmas buffoon. My husband says he has accepted the crazy. LOL!

Anyhow, (I almost started rambling there for a minute, lol) I made this cute ‘present’ gift bag using Echo Park’s This & That Christmas. It’s VERY simple. I honestly wanted to do more, but it wasn’t happening. Still very cute and useful though!

Now, I have been designed for SVG Cuts for almost 2 years now (small break in that time, but still..) and I haven’t really given much look at this cute present bag in the Christmas Gift Bags & Boxes SVG Kit until recently. I have used that star bag SEVERAL times though! So it was something ‘new’ for me. I actually have another version of this bag that I need to finish. At his rate, it might not be until after Christmas though, lol. I need to get busy baking soon.. Mmmm.. cookies before crafting!

 

Before I send you off to the next blog, I wanted to share these cute tags using the Happy Holidays mini theme!

Totally cute, right? I love how the journaling cards made perfect tag bases!

 

Annnd.. one last thing. A recent Winter Wishes project! This one is a FREE PDF download HERE. This one is great for a gift giving! I got my cute little tin pail at the Dollar Tree.

 

OK, friends.. time to send you off to Linda’s blog!

 

Here’s the blog list in case you’re lost.

*waves* see ya later!

Doodle-buggy cuteness

Who loves some Doodlebug Designs?! I love the cartoony cuteness of it and it’s GREAT for kids crafts like cards, tags, goodie bags, etc. It’s always a ‘go-to’ when I need to create a fun and cutesy project. I needed a cute Christmas goodie bag so I whipped up this adoooorable bag with a few files from SVG Cuts and Doodlebug’s ‘Santa’s Workshop’ papers and stickers.

How can you not smile at that? I thought the little window with the elf hanging out was a cute touch! He wants to hang some candy canes on the tree!…

…. Or beat Santa and the other elf with them.. he is kinda looking at that other elf with a crazy eye “I’m gonna get you” expression… he looks like he would snap at the sight of a simple crooked bow. Eh… Either way, it’s cute!

See the cool tree? Ya see how it’s ‘folded’? Super easy to do with SVG Cuts’ Christmas Cheer SVG Kit. (Tree card). I love how it adds a bit of dimension. I added some ‘ornaments’ with Epiphany Crafts round 14 shape tool.

“Hi, Santa!!!”

For the bag I used SVG Cuts Vintage Halloween Bags (I cut the handle off and added my own with large eyelets and wire) and the scalloped window was created using the Scalloped Shapes Collection. 

 

And while I am on the topic of SVG Cuts, did you SEE the new kit? Back pats for me since I suggested this stuff, LOL! We are big.. biiiig.. almost to a creepy level Elf on the Shelf fans here so I am SUPER excited about this, I just need to get some light ‘skin’ colored paper first.. and that won’t happen until Saturday. Waaaaah…. Such a bummer! I guess I could use burnt oraneg and make the elves overly tanned Jersey Shore-esque, LOL! But hey, YOU can play! Use code ‘FREEGIFT’ and get it FREE with a purchase fo $9.98 or more!

Introducing, Santa’s Helpful Elves!

Alrighty, folks.. I’m sick.. AGAIN!…. I know.. how do I manage to stay alive at this rate. Yes, I really am sick like every other month lately. It’s quite ridiculous. Plus I am in full swing Santa mode over here! Baking, gifting, celebrating, etc. so I might be a bit quiet the next week or so while I drown myself in gift wrap, cookies, fudge, prime rib, and peppermint mochas.

Latest SVG Cuts project – Happy Holidays Treat Mug

Heeeeeey there!

So excited to share my latest  SVG Cuts project! I knew I wanted a ‘mug’ for holiday goodie packaging.. SVG Cuts does have a cute teacup in the Tea For You and Me kit, but the style just would not work. I needed a mug, darn it! Soooo.. I made a mug from a beach pail.. Oh, yeah! And the best part is, it actually WORKED, lol (I won’t get into how many ‘flop’ projects I’ve had.) I am not one for making the ‘outside the box’ projects.. my brain doesn’t work like that, but I gotta say.. I felt all crazy cool making my mug from a pail, LOL! *does a little dance*

So, here’s my holiday mug treat holder! I was going to put marshmallows in it, but the caramel popcorn looked prettier. Besides, I rather eat popcorn instead marshmallows, lol.

Not that I eat stuff I use for projects or anything… *wipes popcorn crumbs off my face*

Isn’t it so ‘warm’ feeling? I love the papers I used! I used some Simple Stories with a small touch of October Afternoon and Echo Park. My favorite part.. besides the popcorn of course, is the snowflake with that big ‘ol wood button!

I was pretty amused with the fact that the boxwoods I made from SVG Cuts 3D Wintergreens Kit actually came out.. and what’s this?… Those shiny red things.. “Oooohhhh.. shiiiiiiny” lol. I used my Epiphany Crafts shape tool (round 14) for some ‘berries’.

Yes.. to YOU!….. I am so nice, right?

Just don’t be mad if the mug is empty when you get it.

LOL..

In all honesty, I’m actually not big on popcorn… and this set still looks exactly like the photos, popcorn and all. No crumbs on my face to wipe off.. etc. I am such a fibber.. waaah. Lying to my blog readers for their entertainment. *hangs head* Although, were you really THAT entertained at the thought of me eating popcorn?..

Maybe if you have a unshowered chick eating popcorn at her craft table fetish or something. Weird.

 

Anyhow, if ya want to make one for yourself you’ll need these SVG Cuts kits. Even if you don’t wanna make this super cool mug, you still need these kits, so click on over and snag’em!

A little more kits than I normally would use, but sometime’s you just NEED something from another kit to make it look just right. For example, I used just the little pitcher handle from the Home for the Holidays kit, that’s it.. But the mug would not be the same without it!

Now, for all the sizing deets, head on over to THIS blog post! I walk ya through step-by-step on how to make this! If you make one.. or 100.. share them on my Facebook page (and SVG Cuts page) We all LOVE to see our (DT members) work recreated by the SVG Cuts fans! makes us feel like cool kids. Although, I am cool either way, so.. yeah.

 

Anyhow, while I am talkin’ SVG Cuts, did you see their announcement for the 12 days of Christmas? Almost wish I wasn’t on the DT so I could play along.. lol (not really!) But seriously.. GREAT prizes, peeps! Sizzix eclips, Silhouette Cameo, paper, embellishments (including some from my shop, Paper Play Studio!), $100 gift card.. So be sure to be on the look out and join in the fun! It’s gonna be ah-maaaaaaazing!

 

Alrighty, time for me to stop yappin’ and send ya packin’.

No.. no need to read that last sentence again.. it was lame enough the first time around.
