Happy New Years!!!!!

Happy New Years!!!!

We made it through the year 2017!
Are you ready for 2018?

For this cute layout for our celebration picture memories, 
I used parts from 2 different files. 
The files I used were Cutie KaToodles - It's Midnight Somewhere and Cutie KaToodles - New Year Bears.
For this layout, I used the printable JPEG part of the file.


Please be safe with your celebrations tomorrow night
and we will see you next year.

Guitar Man by Bloobel

I have a cute new digital stamp to share with you from

He could be used for so many things.
I left the sentiment off of this card until I 
have a person to give it to and can use it
for the occasion at the time.


(It really hasn't been cut crooked. The card was
opened a snitch when I snapped the picture.)

The plastic buttons are from Jesse James and Co.

Wishing you a magical birthday

Another year has come.
Who doesn't have a need for birthday cards?
I chose a cute digi from 
Bloobel Stamps and Coloring Pages
called Wicked Wizard to
help me mix up a Happy Birthday to a sweet
deserving person.

And a Kadoodle Bug or Two in the Tree

I am still creating Christmas Tree decorations.
This time I have used:


has a lot of cute Christmas themed files as well
           as a lot of other themes. One could make a tree to last
the whole year and not run out of cute files to use.


May you continue in all of your Christmas
preparation happily and safely.

Christmas!!!

Cutie KaToodles - Santa Ornament Bear

Have you got your tree up for Christmas yet?
We usually put ours up on Thanksgiving but this year 
we didn't get it up until last night. It still needs to 
be decorated. We will get it done soon.

This year I decided to use some of the cute files from
Kadoodle Bug Designs to help 
decorate our tree.
The first one I did was the Cutie KaToodles - Santa Ornament Bear.
I added stickles to add some sparkle, some
3D foam dots to create dimension,
some chalk for rosy cheeks,
inked the edges, and added white dots for shine in the nose and eyes.
I used a pattern paper from my stash of Christmas patterned
paper to jazz up the hat and ornament.


Thanks for stopping by and hope you
have a great holiday season. 
Add some holiday spirit with Christmas projects
from Kadoodle Bug Designs that you create this year.

Mice Singing card

Koala T Crafts have cute digis.
Have you seen them?

I chose to make a Christmas card using a digi from the 
called Mice Singing.
I can just see in my mind cute little mice standing outside
my front door singing Christmas carols for cheese.

The base of the card is from Cricut Design Space. 
I added a couple of cute buttons from my
stash called Dress It Up Music from Jesse James & Co.
Stickles were placed on the stars on the border frame.
The background paper was some I had in my stash.
I used a 3D foam square to raise the mice a little
off the base paper.


Be sure to check out the cute digis from Koala T Crafts
for your fun projects.

Check out the Koala T Crafts blog for more ideas.

Fun project with 2 inch squares

This project is soooooo versatile. 
Just a few ideas on how to use it:
1. Scrapbook layouts
2. Memory game
3. Use larger squares and make pictures
4. Elements for cards

First, I have a video tutorial by Jen Evers on how she
makes and uses her twinchies.
(Twinchies in a word that means 2-inch squares.)


I have used many squares in the past to decorate layouts with.
Here are the twinchies that I used Koala T Crafts Monster digi bundle to make.






They make cute layout borders as well as using in different ways on the layouts.

The following are NOT part of the Koala T Craft digi lines but I wanted to give you more ideas on how these can be used. You can make them all sizes.


These are 1 inch (onsies) that are also shakers

The letters are 3 inch (thrinchies)

Hope you have fun with this type of element making.
Thanks for checking this out.

Remember our nut free friends

Nowadays peanut allergies seem to be blooming in
our friends left and right.

Kadoodle Bug Designs has two cute cut files for nut-free candy.

and

which I chose to make a sign to sit by some goodies
that are nut free so those who need them can make sure they
the get the nut-free candy.
I also added a digi stamp from Odd Ball art 
call Spooky Halloween Candy and Bone.
