Welcome to DAY 3 of  The 12 Days of Doodlebug

12daysofdoodlebugsig

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!!!

Today I want to show you my finished Seasonally decorated table in my living room! But in order to do that I must show you the other project I finished for today!!

At an Expo in Salt Lake,  a couple of years ago,  my friend bought me this white holiday tree made by Doodlebug Design

It is a pre-assembled wire based tree measuring 25-1/2 by 15 in with a sturdy wood base.  Here is a link to one on Amazon – Doodlebug Plain & Simple Holiday Tree

I wanted to decorate it for the Springtime so I took this flower kit from Doodlebug Design that is part of the Hello, Sunshine collection

I took the sheets from the package and removed all the die cut flowers and circles – I then layered them together – some with other flowers or some with button centers or I also used some of the before mentioned Flower sprinkles to spruce these up!

This is what I ended up with –

15 flowers that I had added yellow twine hangers to, making them into ornaments!

I then took some light orange ribbon and used it like a garland on the tree and then added the flower ornaments to my tree!!

I guess I should tell you that back in January I used a string of lights and wired them to the branches of my tree – so it does light up!!

Here is my finished tree:

You will notice that I put something on the front square of the sturdy wood base!! What I did was this –

Using the large scalloped circle sticker from the This & That Sticker sheet – I made this square to put on the front of the tree base!! I layered the sticker on the same blue cardstock and yellow patterned paper that I used on the banner and the clipboard!! And I used the before mentioned scallop border punch to enhance the yellow layer!!

This is just taped to the base in the corners so it can come off easily when I transition my tree in the Summer months!!!

And NOW for the BIG REVEAL –

My Springtime Table:

In case you were wondering how to get your hands on some Doodlebug cuteness  – I wanted to mention that there are some on-line stores that I shop at to find Doodlebug Design items!

I shop at A Cherry on Top and Scrapbook.com and Paper Issues!

If you shop at A Cherry on Top and they asked who referred you – I would love it if you put my name down – you earn points for people referred to them!! I love this site because they get the NEW stuff FAST and then you can get it!!! **grin**  Also Scrapbook.com is offering  free shipping after $50 orders (til April 5th) And Paper Issues carries a lot of the smaller items of Doodlebug – they don’t carry a lot of 12 by 12 stuff!! They do package things up pretty and are fun to shop with!!!  Happy shopping!!!!

Hope you have a bright, sunny and happy day!!!

See you tomorrow!!
