Welcome to the 12 days of Doodlebug
**WARNING – PICTURE HEAVY POST**
I am so excited about this 12 day series that I am doing here on my blog – I LOVE DOODLEBUG and I have been a user and collector for the past 15 years!! Anything made by them delights and excites me – I love their bright, happy colors and incredibly cute icons and borders they make!! I thought doing this series would be a perfect way for me to lead up to and celebrate my birthday with you – There will be prizes – more on that at the end!!!
Over the course of these 12 Days of Doodlebug I will share with you ideas on using their products for Home Decor, Scrapbooking, Card-making, and Enhancing any paper project!! The Doodlebug Design blog is an excellent place to get inspiration and ideas also!! I hope you will visit them soon!! Their Design Team is AMAZING!!!
Day 1 – Spring Banner
Made using Doodlebug Design‘s Hello Sunshine collection! (This link here is from earlier this year and the post talks about a giveaway – the giveaway mentioned is over but I still linked here because it is a great post with pictures of everything in this collection)
Here are pictures of each letter:
To make this banner I started with the largest die in the SU! Banners Framelits set
I cut banners in both chipboard and various Doodlebug papers from this collection:
Using Mod Podge I adhered the printed papers to the chipboard by painting on a thin coat!
I used these two Stampin’ UP! punches to make the accent letter circles – 2 3/8″ Scalloped, 2’Regular
Using the word “spring” stickers from the icon sheet I added the letters!
I added accents to each letter using the Sprinkles from this collection!!
I punched 1/8″ holes on either side of each piece and then I used some ribbon to thread them together. Then I used buttons and stitched them on the ribbon in between the banners!
And the finished result was this:
There you go – I used Doodlebug products to make a Home Decor project!! Stay tuned for Days 2 and 3 where I will be adding more things made for my Holiday/Seasonal Decor table!!
