Doodlebug Swiss Dot Frame Decor

Hi everyone, it's Traci and I'm back to share my swiss dot project with you!  I love primary colors and although the new swiss dot papers come in lots of fun colors, I chose the primary ones for my framed decor piece.  I think this will look really cute in a child's room!


I love this 8x8 shadowbox frame from Doodlebug, and it worked perfectly for my picture.  To create the white mat, I designed a background with my Silhouette CAMEO machine.  I used sketch pens to create the "stitched" boxes and then cut the inside squares out. 


I also used my Silhouette to cut out each embellishment -- the swiss dot papers cut beautifully! 




I finished this piece off with some chippers alpha stickers.  Love these!!  

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my project!  Leave me a comment and tell me about your fun swiss dot projects!!

Lori Whitlock February Blog Hop + A Giveaway!

Hi everyone!  Today I'm hopping along with Lori Whitlock's Creative Team for our February blog hop!



For my project, I created a gift set for a little boy.  Lori's easel cards are so much cuter than anything you can buy at the store, and since they are handmade they will mean more to the recipient ... or in this case, the little guy's mom :)


I plan to tuck a small toy, some candy, and a gift card into the little favor box. The box in Lori's shop is called Heart Owl Favor Box and it was originally designed as an adorable Valentine box.  But like all of Lori's designs, it's super easy to change them up to fit a different occasion.  



For both projects, I used papers from a collection that Lori designed for Echo Park called Little Man, and twine from Doodlebug Designs ... I find a place for their new chunky twine on almost every project I create!



Now, back to Lori's blog hop .... don't miss these awesome goodies that Lori has for you!  

>>> and...keep scrolling .... I have a giveaway for you from Artsy Albums too!!







Before you continue hopping, enter to win a $10 gift card to the Silhouette Design Store courtesy of my Artsy Albums shop!  A winner will be announced on our Facebook page and Instagram this Friday!

Doodlebug Pot O' Gold Mini Album

Happy Monday everyone!  I'm kicking off the week over on the Doodlebug Designs blog with a project using the super cute, new Pot O' Gold collection.   You know mini albums are my favorite project, so this time I decided to make an album that hangs on a wooden board.  The board has a hook on the back to hang on the wall -- it turned into a fun decor piece! 


For the cascading chipboard pages, I used sheets from the Pot O' Gold 6x6 paper pad.   The little scene on the front cover was created with a 2x3 card from the paper pad, icon stickers, and lots of adorable glitter sprinkles and limeade twine.


I wanted a pop of yellow in my album so I threw in a piece of new Bumblebee Petite Prints.  One of my favorite things about Doodlebug is that everything coordinates ... so the yellow color in the Pot O' Gold collection matches the papers in the Petite Prints collection too!  


I couldn't resist adding a banner of colorful boutique buttons to this page!

I love the phrase sheets that are part of the new 12x12 and 6x6 collections.   The 6x6 versions work perfectly for my mini albums like in the page above -- super cute with those colorful sprinkles!



Since the pages towards the back of my album were longer than 6x6, I combined multiple 6x6 papers and borders from the fancy frills stickers . 



Well I hope you've enjoyed my Pot O' Gold mini album.  Remember, this collection doesn't just need to be for St. Patrick's Day ... all of the colors are perfect for so many different projects!  So check back in with the entire creative team over the next two weeks because we have lots of fun ideas to share with you on Doodlebug's blog!
