Baby Boy Cards with Doodlebug

Hey guys! Doodlebug Designs is featuring a color challenge over on their blog. The design team was asked to pick a Doodlebug color to play with this week and I chose Blue Jean! It was easy for me to focus on this color because as a mom of two boys, blue has always been the color-of-choice around my house.

I decided to make three very different cards for my project so that I could play with lots Doodlebug products.

For the first card, I created a mason jar shaker card using a cut file called Shaker Mason Jar by Lori Whitlock (link below). I loaded it up with blue jean colored boutique buttons and sequins, along with one red button for a pop of color. You can buy those Doodlebug buttons and sequins at a great shop, here and here.

For the second card, I used one of Doodlebug's Create-A-Cards and punched a star in the top. Then in true "Melinda Spinks" fashion I added lots of sprinkles and gems to give the star some shine. I used Doodlebug's Doodles cardstock stickers to add a quick sentiment but you can also use .

Finally, for my last card I used another cutting file from Lori Whitlock called Baby Boy Overall Card (link below) to make a sweet pair of overalls. This one came together easily with patterned paper from the Snips and Snails collection and sprinkled star vellum from Patriotic Picnic. Then I had a few critters from the Forest Friends Doodle-pops peeking out of a pocket. Love them!

Since some products are from older Doodlebug collections, I found a few similar ones and added links below along with some of the actual products.
