Monday with Vicki Boutin and recap of our trip to Doodlebug Design!

So excited to be on the SCT blog today sharing a little Doodlebug Design love fresh from the SPC Mixed Media show in Salt Lake City, Utah last week.  Catherine and I had a great time checking out all of the fun new releases coming soon and we made a special trip to the Doodlebug Design offices where some serious magic happens!


I have to tell you…this place was AMAZING!!!!  Each office a different Doodlebug signature color, inspiring art everywhere and a most epic and CLEAN warehouse!


Doodlebug has been one of my personal favourites for what seems like forever.  Every release is bright, whimsical and COLOURFUL!!!!  This drawer of buttons from their craft room (seriously mind blowing room!) pretty much sums their wonderfulness up…


Meet Cynthia…the QUEEN of Doodlebug…she has a good dash of crazy fun in her…my kind of girl!  Here she is showing off the brand new Petite Prints (swoon).


Take a look at this sweet card that her team created using the Petite Prints…


I KNOW!!!!  Isn’t it SWEET!!!

Catherine and I spent awhile touring the building and “ooh-ing” and “awe-ing” at every turn.  This pillow in Cynthia’s office kind of summed it all up…


These ladies have a SPARKLE that radiates bright and shiny!!


Thanks Cynthia and Tonya for inviting us into your uber awesome creating space!!!!!!  

My visit to where all of the Doodlebug magic happens inspired me to create a little something with this sweet line… “Kitten Smitten.”

DB8Take a look…


This is Teddy…my brother cat.  He is my Mom’s sweet kitty and I grabbed a few photos of hime the last time I visited.  Puurect photo for this line!



See these diecuts…I have been waiting for this addition to the Doodlebug line up forever!  LOVE them!!!

DB15Don’t you just love them?!?!?!?  

DB12I added a little of this new product I bought to try out…Nuvo Embellishment Mousse in Indian Gold…super pretty and easy to use!


Here is a closer look.


I layered a second smaller photo with a white border over the 5×7 photo of Teddy to draw the focus to his beautiful eyes.  Love the effect!

Ok! That’s it for me! Thanks for stopping by! Don’t forget…Make time to make!!!

    The Doodlebug offices are even more amazing than their products! I got to visit last summer when we travelled through Salt Lake City and fell in total love. I have never met such welcoming and wonderful people – they gave me the grand tour (when I literally crashed their office)! And, yes, I was just as impressed as you with their show room and amazing warehouse – I was breathless the whole time!! But, I owe thanks for that amazing adventure to you Vicki, because you introduced me to Doodlebug years ago in your classes. LOVE LOVE LOVE you and Doodlebug and their new stuff!!!

    Doodlebug never ceases to make me smile….even when I don’t feel like smiling. Thanks for the peak into your adventure.

    I really, really like Doodlebug Designs. Love the layouts too. I’m a little partial to the Kitty paper pad. 🙂

    I am a HUGE Doodlebug fan! I cannot get enough of their outstanding products. Vicki you were living my dream! I’d LOVE to see where all the Doodlebug magic happens and maybe a bit of their creative awesomeness would rub off on me! Your cat LO is super cute and fun! Thanks for sharing this post today. It totally made my day!

    Once again you rocked out all those cute Doodle Bug pretty’s on the CAT LO!! Loved that you shared behind the scenes tour of the Doodle Bug’s work space! I zeroed in on that gold mousse stuff too – looks like play time with that. Need to find me some.
