Fun Fold Cards with Doodlbug Design Happy Go Lucky Collection

Hi there! Top o' the Mornin' to ya! This post has got me feeling all Irish and so ready for St. Patty's Day! Many of you know that I absolutely love fun fold cards. I love creating them and even better giving them! There is something so fun about making a card with a fun pop up feature, or a fun design element that makes opening a fun fold card - well - So Much Fun! Today I want to show you the 3 cards that I did featuring Doodlebug's first ever St. Patrick's Day line - Happy Go Lucky and Doodlebug's textured cardstock. Come check out what I did!

I used my Silhouette machine for each of these cards. Have I told you how awesome the Doodlebug Textured cardstock cuts in my Silhouette? I love it! If you have an electronic die cutting machine - try the cardstock - it's the best!  I have included the link to the exact files I used from the Silhouette Shop in my post.
My first card is this fun one is called a  Circles Flip Swing Card . How fun are the little happy, smiling shamrocks peeking out from the swing out portion of the card.?

This next card is called a Center Easel Card. I loved adding the darling little freckled Leprechaun boy to this card. Isn't he cute? This card lays down flat but then using a sticker and a pop dot, you can make it so the easel portion pops up!

And finally we have this adorable card called a Scallop Center Step Card.  When I designed this card I really wanted to use the shamrock from the 4x4 cut out sheet , so I deleted the scallop portion of the cut file and added the shamrock circle. I did trim the 4x4 circle down just a bit to fit the card base, but I love how I was still able to use most of the square.

Thank you so much for stopping by and taking a peek. If you feel "lucky" to have that special someone in your life, whip up one of these fun and festive cards for them. I know with the combination of the cute Happy Go Lucky Products and the fun folds that are on these cards, your recipient will totally know how you feel. Have a wonderful day!

Chocolate Lovers Valentine Treats - Lori Whitlock Design Team

Hello Lori Whitlock fans!  It's Tya here to share with you some yummy treat boxes using a few of Lori's darling files.  Do you know anyone who is a choc-o-holic? If so , then today's post is for you! While I love all the mushy Valentine cards, and lovely flowers that accompany this holiday - in my opinion, Valentines Day is meant for CHOCOLATE! So I went through and chose 3 of my favorite little treat boxes and favors and added a yummy, different chocolate treat to each type. Let me show you what I did!

For this box I used the Candy Tote (LW Shop) (Silhouette Store). This little box was perfect and fit 4 Ghiradelli Chocolate squares.

This box uses the Tall Heart Gable box (LW Shop) (Silhouette Store). I added a small sheet of acetate to hold all of those yummy Hershey's Kisses in. I loved the little heart shaped cut out in this box! Perfect for showcasing the chocolate!
This last box uses the 3D Candy Box with Window file (LW Shop) (Silhouette Shop). I filled this darling little box with M&M's and added an acetate window to this box as well.

I used the adorable Lovebugs line from Doodlebug Design for all of my boxes.

Thanks so much for stopping by and if you have a chocolate lover for a Valentine - I am sure they would love any of these! Have a wonderful day!
