Summer Fun...

 Hello KaDoodle Bugs and Happy Wednesday!!!! We have made it halfway through the week...YAY!!! KBD has been coming out with so many awesome files lately, don't you think? I have a hard time trying to pick which ones I want to create with, but when I saw these Tropical Flamingos I knew I had to have them. And what better way to start creating some fun Summer projects than with flamingos!!! So with that being said, I am sharing a 12 x 12 scrapbook layout I created entitled, "Summer Fun".

To start, I uploaded my svg file to my Cricut Design Space and cut all of my file pieces using my Cricut Explore Air 2.  I then inked all pieces using Tim Holtz Distress Inks and adhered them together using Art Glitter Glue. I then used a white Gel Pen to add some accents and highlights.

To create my title, I used some foam glitter stickers that I had in my stash to spell out "Summer Fun". To spruce up the banner, I added Nuvo Crystal Drops along the top edge of the banner and I outlined the two small hearts at each end with stickles.

To jazz up the pineapple and watermelon, I added some sequins (which again is from my stash). I also added glossy accents to the watermelon seeds and finally a small bow to the pineapple to add even more interest.

For the two flowers, I added some Stickles in the center just to bring out some more glittered accents throughout the layout. My photo mats were die cut using the Fancy Frames die set I have from Craftin Desert Divas. I layered most of my paper piecings covering a small area of each mat, but did not glue that area down (which will allow me to slip pics underneath for a better fit). And to finally complete and finish off my layout, I added some more Nuvo Crystal Drops at the edges of my mats.

Below is the KBD Tropical Flamingos file that I used to create this layout:

I hope that you enjoyed my project and will return again soon for more inspiration and amazing project ideas from our Design Team.

Octopus Mother's Day Card

Hey Kadoodle Bug Fans,

I hope you had a fantastic day today!! : ) It was such a beautiful spring day here. I got to spend some time outside today and watched a woodpecker for a little bit. I love to go outside, especially in the springtime when it's not so hot. 
So, todays project is an ocean themed Mother's Day Card.  I used a combination of two files for this project. The first file is the You are my Squishy and the second is Princess Narwhal from Kadoodle Bug Designs.

When I was a little kid, my favorite movie was The Little Mermaid. Now it would have to be Finding Nemo or Finding Dory. I just loved all the colors that they show in the ocean. I would constantly draw pictures of the ocean and make it really colorful. Dreaming of the day that I would finally get to see the ocean in person. That dream finally came true the summer of 2015. Yay!! : )
 I had so much fun creating this card!! The more I worked on it, the more excited I became and couldn't wait to see the finished result. So to create this card I combined two files You are my Squishy and Princess Narwhal. I used the Princess Narwhal file for the seaweed, starfish, shells, and I'm going to say coral. I'm not sure if that was coral or not but I made it coral for my card. Then I used the You are my Squishy file to make the Momma octopus and the little girl octopus.

Below is a complete list of supplies and materials used to complete this project:

Kadoodlebug Designs Cutie KaToodles - Belated Birthday Sloth

Anyone else forgetful some days like I am?
What about forgetting birthdays?

Kadoodlebug Designs has a cute file for us when we
forget those birthdays. It is so cute, the receiver will
surely forgive us. 

All the paper is Recollection paper. 
To get the sparkle on some of the pieces, I used Spectrum Noir Sparkle markers.
I inked the edges with Color Box inks and chalks. 
I used 3D foam squares to add dimension.
I added some ribbon from my ribbon stash.

Happy crafting. 
Make up some extra cards to have on hand for those special days when you want to give cards.

Unicorn Strength!

Unicorns are everywhere right now!! Did anyone get a Unicorn Frap from starbucks? I did almost everyday! might try and go get me one today because it's the last day!!! Anyway I am working on a filming background for my younique videos and I needed pictures put on the wall. I looked up quotes for motivation and used my silhouette to finagle them around on watercolor backgrounds and added the exercise unicorn to one! I think it came out cute! and is a great addition to the wall. Only 3 more pictures to make it complete!
