Doodlebug Sunkissed Summer Popsicle Layout & Bicycle Card

Hi there!  I'm popping in today with some fun projects featuring the newest Sunkissed Collection by Doodlebug.  Don't the darling images and colors in this line ooze happiness?!  I can't help but smile when looking at it all!  I decided to create three projects to share using this happy collection, but honestly I wish I had enough time to play and make another dozen!

Up first I have a layout with a focus on the new Skinny alphabet cardstock stickers and the Summer Treats Craft Kit.  I was immediately taken with how well they matched some photos I took of my daughter and her cousins last summer.  Even the grass paper was a perfect compliment!

I had fun using the Skinny Cardstock stickers in a rainbow of colors.  Unfortunately as I was working I realized the yellow "P" was blending into my background.  To remedy this I added a die-heart from the matching patterned paper and now it looks like something that was very intentional.  I love when that happens!  :)

I have a huge confession.  I love my Doodlepop stickers so much that I have a tendency to hoard them and I have a really hard time using them on my actual projects with the fear that I may want to use it on something else down the road.  I definitely struggled with that a bit on this page, but in the end I decided it was better to use it on my layout than on a card I might never see again.  LOL!  Tell me I'm not alone in my hoarding ways.  ;)

My next project was a super quick card using a create-a-card base and a 4x4 square cut from the Surf's Up patterned paper.  All I did was use a simple stitch around the square, a small strip of rainbow paper and some embellishing with a sentiment sticker and some sprinkles and jewels.  I love the big impact this has with so very little effort!

I hope you've enjoyed this look at the new collection.  It epitomizes everything I adore about Doodlebug!  :)

Supplies Used (available at


  1. Mendi, you are NOT alone in the urge to hoard those adorable Doodlepops! I too will only put them on my layouts, so that I can have them forever and ever. :)

    Adorable layout and cards! Thanks for the inspiration!

    1. Thanks Jenny! I'm glad to hear I'm in good company. ;)

  2. Such beautiful projects Mendi! Your layout is just perfect. The grass paper in the background really does compliment the photo! Brings that natural grass right out. I have always loved the beautiful and bright colors that Doodlebug creates. This paper collection is no different, really gorgeous! Love your cards too, especially that one with the bike!

  3. Oh, Mendi, my dear, that hoarding doesn't just stop at stickers for me - it applies to ALL things Doodlebug (that is precisely why I am doing the 12 days of Doodlebug over at my blog - SO I ACTUALLY USE MY STUFF!!!) Your layout has amazing, fun pics and the way you put that heart behind your letters is genius and not something I would have thought of so thanks for the idea!!! Also - your cards, each one of them taught me something - the # 1 thing being that I could TURN the cards!! I don't have to use them in the traditional way! The other thing I learned is that I could use those cards and SEW ON THEM another cool and very smart idea!!! It is just so perfect the way you have coordinated everything so perfectly and wonderfully!! You are awesomeness in and of itself!! Love and Hugs to you!! Hope you are enjoying your Easter weekend!!
