Washi Tape Challenge!

Hello everyone! I hope you have been enjoying all the awesome washi tape projects that the DT have been doing! Courtney Lee from Court's Crafts here with a few more!

For this first card I wanted to use a bunch of washi tape from the Cream and Sugar collection that I was in LOVE with but didn't get to use on my original projects with this collection. So I grabbed it and had this idea of making "confetti" out of it. 

The chevron was half size washi tape so it took two of those side by side to make it the same size as the others. 

I just cut white squares out and covered them with the washi and then popped them as desired with dimensional tape. 

I added some heart shape sprinkles, sequins, and stickers and voila! Ready to send to someone I love!

I bought these cute cases for the girls so they would (ahem) stop fighting over craft supplies. Best $2.99 I have spent yet!

I grabbed Emmaline's and added her name using the new Abigail font on this awesomely bright rainbow washi tape. Isn't the Abigail font perfect!? It might be my most favorite font ever. 

How cute is that?!

My last card was actually my first idea. I wanted to make a "present" out of the washi tape.

I was originally intending it to be clean and simple and then kept adding and adding and LOVED it. I had it on an embossed white background with this awesome glitter paper as a border but just had to have more sparkle! 

I added this cute gingerbread man and the word, "Sweet" from the Milk and Cookies Odds and Ends. This is one of those cards that looks so much cuter in person. I cannot wait to send it out!

I hope you enjoyed my projects! How do you love to use your washi tape?! Please share with us on the doodlebug facebook page

Milk and Cookies

Okay, so this is one of those collections that you HAVE to have in your hot little hands to fully appreciate. It goes together SO easily and I just LOVE IT. It's Courtney Lee from Court's Crafts here with a card trio that makes me so happy. 

 This card was so much fun to make for me. It was one of those that had some inspiration behind it and then I just started cutting away and adding bits here and there. I really wanted to showcase some of the adorable patterned papers. 

I grabbed this fabulous Traditions sticker off of the This and That sticker sheet as well as the arrows that I used as corner pieces. If you know me then you know how I feel about shaped sprinkles and how I cannot get enough of them. I HAD to get that adorable gingerbread man on there and the cookies and hearts - how cute are those!?   

 I tied the doodle twine around the top and then glued the whole thing down. I actually pulled the whole thing up to add the doily. It was an afterthought that became the element that brought together the next two cards!

doodles used:

Santa's Hungry
This is a mini card that comes in the create a card Christmas assortment. I put another doily down and then the red and white border came from an odds and ends acrylic piece!

How cute is that doodle-pop? Santa visit was just too cute to leave in his packaging. I looked over and saw on the front of the 6x6 paper pad that they had santa in his chair with a glass of milk and a cookie in his hand so I just grabbed them off of the shape sprinkles package and added them. Done! Voila!

Look at the depth of those doodle-pops! They are so 3-D in real life! 

doodles used:
create a card christmas assortment (5738)
doodle pop: santa visit (5760)
odds and ends: milk and cookies (5766)
shape sprinkles: milk and cookies (5753)
mini doilie in lily white (4605)

Mrs. Claus is Baking
I mean, isn't she darling!? Again, these patterned papers were just too cute not to showcase. I picked three that were darling together and then added the red and white striped "belt".

This milk jug is just sooo 80's but 80's darling and I love whisks... like I have 4 and have to restrain myself from buying new ones so I just had to get it in here along with a couple more cookies. 

I added a spoon to Mrs. Claus and some shape sprinkle hearts to the sentiment piece which came off of the this and that sticker sheet. I tucked two halves of a doily behind the sentiment to finish it off.

doodles used:
6x6 paper pad: milk and cookies (5806)
this and that (5776)
shape sprinkles: sugarplums (5754)
icons (5774)
mini doilie in lily white (4605)

I hope this inspires you to start your Christmas card and that you will run right out to grab some of this fabulous and fun Milk and Cookies collection before it is gone!

Isn't this collection ADORABLE!?!? No one does Halloween like Doodlebug. They make spiders and ghosts and all things spooky sooooooo cute! Courtney Lee from Court's Crafts here with a couple of cute and quick cards for Halloween fun!

Okay, are you READY for this!? I was moving houses... but then the move got delayed for over a month.. so we were couch-surfing with three children... and I had literally nothing to craft with... So I borrowed my friend's scissors and her scotch tape (I kid you not) and went to work! This was my own personal challenge and I had a blast (and a few frustrations of course). 

The card bases are from the create-a-card halloween assortment. Aren't they fun!? I had another one planned but couldn't quite complete it before I had to write this post. boo. (haha. get it!?)

I cut out the black with pumpkin panel from the 6x6 paper pad on the sheet with the small squares and awesome sayings (see sentiment as well). My biggest frustration during this process: not having foam dots. I wanted to pop this panel so much!

The pumpkins on the side and the black cat (how cute is that cat!!!??) came from the mini icons (LOVE). The gorgeous shiny candy corn is a shaped sprinkle and the dots came from the halloween treats sprinkles and the halloween assortment glitter sprinkles

For my second card I really wanted some doodle pops on there. But truthfully I started with those adorable spiders!!!! 

I wanted to get that acrylic spider web in there (I mean, seriously!!!) and I used rolled up scotch tape behind the spiders to stick it down (yep!). 

Then I added the spiders and drew spider web lines down to them. 

Lastly I created my little scene at the bottom with the adorable doodle-pop couple and their rainbow heart (from this and that) showing their love. swoon. haha. :) 

Thank you for hanging out with me (and the spiders) today! We would LOVE for you to share with us on our Facebook page what YOU have created with Booville!!!!
