Kadoodlebug Designs Lil Koodles - Valentine Panda Baby

Happy Mother's Day!!!

Today I am sharing Lil Koodles - Valentine Panda Baby in more than one way. Kadoodlebug Designs files are so versatile. Although this file says, "Valentine," I am using it for Mother's Day.
I have attached it to a cascade card and to a box to use as gifts for Mother's Day. 
What will you use your files for?

The cascade card is from Dreaming Tree. 
I added the word Mother to the heart to personalize it.

The patterned paper is from Heidi Swapp. 
The box is from Creative Kuts. 
It holds a box of cards for your special mom to give to her friends.

Hope you enjoyed your day with your mothers. 
Plan a day to craft together to build life long memories!

Kadoodlebug Designs You Are My Squishy

Today I have created a card and layout using the file You Are My Squishy.
 I used paper from DCWV that looks like water with the moon shining on it.
 I added a tiny bow from a ribbon with small hearts on it.
I use The Ultimate from Crafter's Companion to tie it.
 For the card, I used the extra octopus I had left over from the layout. 
I cut a card and the octopus with the saying All Hands On Deck from the card base and front picture. I also added a bow like I did on the layout.
I placed the octopus up high enough on the card base so that
it was just barely visible without opening the card. 

The paper is Coordinations. I used Spectrum Noir Sparkle Markers to add sparkle to some of the paper.

Anyone else forgetful some days like I am?
What about forgetting birthdays?

Kadoodlebug Designs has a cute file for us when we
forget those birthdays. It is so cute, the receiver will
surely forgive us. 

All the paper is Recollection paper. 
To get the sparkle on some of the pieces, I used Spectrum Noir Sparkle markers.
I inked the edges with Color Box inks and chalks. 
I used 3D foam squares to add dimension.
I added some ribbon from my ribbon stash.

Happy crafting. 
Make up some extra cards to have on hand for those special days when you want to give cards.
