16 cards from Doodlebug Cream & Sugar

I jumped head first into the new Cream & Sugar 6x6 paper pad by Doodlebug. I used the cut aparts that come in the pad and some of the icon stickers and mini icons. 

I manage to get 16 cards from this paper pad, and I still had full sheets left over. I used my super quick 6x6 tutorial to mass produce these super cute cards. I will link below to the video where I explain my 6x6 paper pad tutorial.

More Spring Things & Kennedy Grace Sequins

I have had tons of fun playing with this new Doodlebug collection, Spring Things.  Kennedy Grace Sequins just seem to be the perfect match for the bright colors in the collection. 

I hope these cards bring big smiles to their recipients. They sure did make me smile while I was creating them.

Doodlebug Cream & Sugar Shaker Card

I needed to make a card with acetate for my partner in a Facebook card swap group that I'm in.  So I continued to work with the Doodlebug Cream & Sugar 6x6 pad. I also used the Silhouette cut file (which I made into a print 'n cut) to make the teacups. 

I then had this idea to make my own mini marshmallows and chocolate chips out of polymer clay.  They paired perfectly with the Kennedy Grace Sequins. 


Here is the number for the cut file: 


Below is the process video showing how I made this adorable card:

Doodlebug Spring Things

I was fortunate to attend CHA this year for the very first time. It was a trip of a lifetime.  I am so very grateful to Teresa from Scrapping For Less for asking me to go as one of her design team members.  I will cherish those memories forever. 

When we first walked onto the showroom floor, we headed straight for the Doodlebug booth. I was in heaven. I truly didn't want to leave.  The colors and "pretties" filled me with such joy. I really could have lived there. 

They had dozens of card samples displayed. A few of them stood out to me and begged me to CASE them. Mendi created these two stunning cards, here is the link to her post. 


I made my cards nearly identical, with only a couple of changes. The other two cards I used similar layouts but chose all the elements myself.

Hello Scrapping for Less Friends,

The Design Team is going to share today and all month the things they love, some brand new Newton's Nook items, and Kennedy Grace Sequins!

Onto my project:
As soon as I saw these beautiful Sequins from Kennedy Grace I knew just what I wanted to do with them. I've always wanted to do this technique but something was holding me back.  Time and patience, maybe?  Because let's admit it, it is time consuming to glue each individual sequin down. But oh boy, is it worth it!  I think this card came out stunning. The sequins are brilliantly sparkly.  I kept the card simple to allow for the "pretties" to do their job, and they certainly did not let me down. 



Kennedy Grace Sequins are a new line now available through Scrapping For Less.
