"For my reveal I got to Create with Doodle Bug's Nifty Notions Collection, How CUTE!! I loved the bright colors as well as the primary colors mixed in. This line was wonderfully fun to create with and looks amazing with solid colors!"

Seamstress:  My first thought with this line was to feature our Seamstress from the Dance Studio. She has magical fingers and creative genius with material! I used the Nifty Notions Paper, with Banana Bliss Bazzill Cardstock. I made the pocket with the Nifty Notions Die Cut Paper. Then added the stitching with the Sew Easy Tool and a template from Bazzill.

It measures up 2 big fun:  The versatility of this line is fantastic. I was able to focus in on the primary colors and make a cute LO of my little Matthew. He had sooo much fun playing with Daddy's Measuring Tape, and proved to be a wonderful camera moment. I started with Celtic Green Bazzill Cardstock then layered it with Cross Stitch Paper, and Sew Plaid Paper. I inked the edge of Sew Plaid with Red and the edge of Cross Stitch in yellow to enhance the primary colors. Then once again used my sew easy tool to add another layer of dimension.


She's My Source:  Since this Line is about sewing, I had to do a LO about my Mom. She has sewn her entire adult life. It was a way of life for them. My Mom is one of the most creative people I know, and she is My Source of Creativity. My base is Sew Easy Plaid Paper, with a small layer of the Nifty Notions Die Cut Paper down the side. Then layering the middle with the Cross Stitch Paper and outling this with the back of the same paper.  I then added the cute text boxes from the Nifty Notions Cute Cuts, and added the Title , which is Doodle Bug Limeade Hopscotch.


For You Gift Card Holder:  The colors inspired me to make a gift card holder. I saw a simpler version in a scrappy source and wanted try one. I used the Nifty Notions Die Cut Paper to make the bottom,and holder. Then I added the trim from the Fancy Frills Cardstock Border Stickers. I made the flower from Sew Plaid Paper and Banana Bliss Bazzill Cardstock. I used Rain Bazzill Cardstock and Cross Stitch Paper for the Holder. Then added the super cute little flowers to finish it off.

"I love sharing my creativity with anyone who is interested. Thank You so much for the Opportunity!! "
