Welcome to Day 9 of the 12 Days of Doodlebug
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!!
One thing I love using Doodlebug products for is – “Cute”ing things up!!
For example this is a take out box from Applebees’
I thought it could make a perfect box for a bunch of cookies that I wanted to give as a thank you to someone!!
So I used a piece of newsprint to try and make a pattern to cover the area with the logo!!
Here is my pattern – It fit perfectly on a 6 by 6″ piece of paper from the paper pad in the Lovebugs collection!
I cut my pattern out and then took a strip of ladybug paper and a leftover strip of the paper I got my pattern from – I used the other side and created a banner piece! Layered them together as you can see in this photo:
I added a cupcake colored Doodlebug Doily
Then I used one of these adorable mini envelopes with a note and a heart from this set!!
Added a couple of these heart sprinkles –
glued it on to my box and wrapped it in twine!!
The lettering is from Doodlebug rub-ons for the two main words and I just wrote the words from the with a .03 black pen!!
What do you think – would you want some cookies delivered to you in a box “cute”d up like this?
I have several Doodlebug Pinterest Boards – you can check them out here – and YES, my boards are mostly in alphabetic order – so go down to the D section in my page of boards!!
Alrighty – I mentioned prizes – YEP I sure did!!!
The Prizes I will be giving away are pictured here –

Do you want to go shopping ??? Duh, who wouldn’t???
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!
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** So, I just ordered all the new Mini Doilies in all the Doodlebug colors!!! YEP – I am so excited!! 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!!! I also wanted to add that Archivers Annex has a lot of exclusive kits of Doodlebug products go here to see them – Happy shopping!!!!
Hope you have a bright, sunny and beautiful day!!!
