Welcome to Day 11 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!!

For my project today I took some mini bags of Lindt chocolates that I found at Dollar Tree –


There are like 3 truffles inside the bag – light green one is from just the other day and the red one I found at Christmas time!!

I cut a banner for the front of each one – for the red I used Patriotic Parade paper ( an older Doodlebug collection but they have a new one called Patriotic Picnic available now!!)  For the green one I used Springtime collection from last year!!

I used a banner die from this set from SU!:


I used the third one in!! I also punched two times with this Bow punch from SU!


Put the bows together using mini glue dots! And added a sticker and some twine –


In both cases the opposite side of the pattern paper was a color with polka dots – so that is what I used for the bows. I used double stick tape to adhere the banner to the package!!!

Well, We are almost to the end – Tomorrow I will show you something made with the Sugar Shoppe collection – the collection that one of you can win!! Thanks for hanging out with me so much lately – I have truly enjoyed it!!!

Alrighty – I mentioned prizes – YEP I sure did!!!

The Prizes I will be giving away are pictured here –

A Corner Chomper


a $25 gift certificate to any store (on-line or walk-in)


 This  Stampin’ Up! stamp set

My Sweet, super amazing friend, Cynthea Sandoval, who is the creator of Doodlebug Designs sent me a prize of Doodlebug products to give to one of you lucky winners!!! So super excited and I appreciate her support so much!!!

It is $40 worth of items from this Birthday collection:


++++PLUS – I have found some duplicates of brand new Doodlebug Items in my stash that I am going to share – so there will be a couple more prizes to win!! Yippee for hoarding, right?!?!!!++++

Here’s how you can win: Visit my blog and comment on as many of my Doodlebug posts as you can/want!! 1 comment per person per post!  The more posts you comment on, the more chances you have to win!  I will use Random.org to determine the lucky winners!!

Winners will be announced by 12 noon MST on Monday, April 13th!!!

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!

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** 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!!!

    I love this idea! I usually just pop things into a gift bag but this is so much cuter!!! It’s great how everything coordinates. The bows could be used in so many different ways. Thanks for showing that punch.

    Just right! I love these! I’m all sorts of green eyed over that bow punch, I’ve been wanting one of those, but just haven’t been able to pull the trigger. So quick and easy though!

    Well I was going to say the pick up truck was my favourite, but that isn’t a doodlebug one :) My favourite Doodlebug one is Easter Parade because those animals are so cute.

    What a fabulous way to package up those yummy treats. And, it is like magic–you took something from the dollar store and made it look like a million bucks. Magic!

    Mmmm, there’s only one thing sweeter than Lindor chocs, and that’s when they are prettied up with cool papers and pretty bows. A great idea! xx

    Such a simple way to class up some little treats!! I LOVE the fun bows that you created using the opposite sides of the patterned paper. Did I mention that I have a HUGE collection of Doodlebug stuff too? It is quite disgusting I must say!! I also like the fun little banners you created with the die. You are rocking your challenge!!
