What's New Wednesday

Happy Wednesday!

Here's what's new at Doodlebugs!

Our May Card Club for the afternoon has sold out.  So, we're adding a morning class.  Join us from 10am - 12pm and create the two cards shown below.

Remember our favorite gold ink?  We now have the same ink in Silvery Shimmer.  You're going to love it!  You can watch the video HERE if the image below is not visible.

The Precision Base Plate from Sizzix is now available.  Click HERE for a video demonstration using the Precision Base Plate.

Tim Holtz has done it again.  He has introduced FOUR new products to the Distress collection.  You can view the videos for each product HERE, HERE, HERE, and HERE.  These products should be available the end of April.  Be sure to get on our Special Order list.  This will ensure you get them before the sell out, and you'll save 10%!

Simple Stories has released NEW Sn@p Packs!  They are like instant albums for your pocket scrapbooking.  They come with assorted cards in different sizes, that coordinate together.  All you need is a Sn@ap Pack, an album and your pictures to create a beautiful coordinated album.

We have new Memory Box dies!

We received a shipment of NEW journals from CR Gibson.

We also received some password log books.

Last week we featured the Photo Fuse Tool from We R Memory Keepers.  Somehow, the video didn't show when we emailed this post.  So, we're featuring it again. You can view that video HERE.


Here's the video for the awesome tote that didn't show up last week either.  View that video HERE.

Don't Miss Our Ten Year Birthday Event

Most of you have heard, Doodlebugs is celebrating 10 Years!!!!  Thank you!  We couldn't have done it without you.  To celebrate, we're throwing a big party on Saturday, April 25th, from 10am - 4pm.  Don't miss it.  We have door prizes, goodie bags, a huge sale, FREE "Make and Takes" and lots of fun.   Be sure to check out all the details listed in our flyer below.

MFT Graduation Accents

I can't believe graduation is just around the corner!  I just realized it's time for graduation party supplies, stamps, dies, and paper to make their appearance in the store.  Where has the time gone?

Here's a quick and easy card you can make using the Graduations Accents Die-namics die from MFT Stamps.  I chose to use Sequim High School colors.  However, you can easily customize it to any school colors.

Here's a close up of the graduation cap.  The set also comes with a diploma.

Here's a peek at the whole set.

Echo Park Sunny Days Ahead

It's been a while since we've shared cards created with those fun sticker sheets that often come with some of the different collections.  We love the Sunny Days Ahead collection from Echo Park, so we created some fun, Spring cards using their sticker sheet along with the Blue Skies Ahead stamp set from MFT Stamps and MFT Blue Prints dies. 

I love how a little Stickles, Glossy Accents, and foam dots will transform a flat sticker into a dimensional embellishment!

Hope you enjoy them.

We added glossy accents to the leaves and the umbrella handle.

We dressed up the sun with some Orange Peel Stickles.

More Glossy Accents for the the centers of the flowers.

The umbrella is dressed up with some Stardust Stickles.

Here's a peek at one of the "Make and Takes" we'll have for our Big Birthday Event at the end of the month.  We'll be using the same Bookmark die and a stamp set from Lawn Fawn.  Hope you can make it!

MFT Happy Hello

Today we have a card using MFT Dies, and micro-fine glitter from Elizabeth Crafts.  The background was cut using the Modern Morocco die.  The cardstock was covered with Elizabeth Crafts adhesive sheets before cutting.  Once the background was cut, the backing was removed exposing the adhesive.  Then, it was covered with gold micro-fine glitter.

Hello was cut from light weight chipboard (yep, it cuts through the thin dies!) several times and stacked together for some dimension.

Want to make two cards using these fun techniques?  Sign up for our May card club.  We'll be using the same techniques to complete the cards shown below.

The cost is only $8.  We'll refund $5, if you purchase $25 or more the day of class.  That makes these cards only $3!!!!  Don't wait too long.  We only have 4 spaces left.
