    Card Swap Cards

    I am a member of a few Cricut groups and recently decided to be part of a card swap. We had to create two different cards and make six of each of each of them. I made a "celebration" card and a "thank you" card. They're just plain, nothing fancy at all but they're from my first card swap through the mail and I wanted to share them. I can't wait to see what everyone made...I hear they're in the mail!

    (I made this card using the Once Upon A Princess cart for the balloons and the Wild Card for the words. I used Bazzill cardstock for the card base, layers, balloons and words. Even though it's hard to see in the photo, I used StarDust Stickles for the glitz on all of the words. I used a basic corner rounder on the corners.)

    (I made this card using the Walk In My Garden cart for the flower pot and flowers. I used Bazzill regular cardstock for the card base, the blue background and the green stems and leaves. I used Bazzill Bling for the pink tulips. I found some old DCWV paper that looks like terracotta so it was perfect for the flower pot. I used double-sided foam tape to pop the "rim" of the flower pot up. I used May Arts ribbon. I printed the "Thanks A Bunch!" on my printer before cutting the blue background. I used an EK Success Concave Punch for the corners. Some people call it a "ticket" punch, but either way it's a very hard punch to find.)

    I hope you like my cards. You can leave a comment if you'd like. Thanks, Ruthie :o)

    Doodilee Boop

    This blog was started way back in 2008 but we've been a little intimidated by all the fantastic crafting blogs and we've kind of been a little scared to post. Well, we finally got brave and decided to just jump in and do our here we go (again).

    You're probably wondering how we came up with our name. Well, see that cute little guy up there in the photo? His name is Buster and he has many nicknames and one of them is Doodilee Boop! He is adorable, fun and unique with a silly playful attitude, just like our small home-based business and the items we sell.

    We create unique, beautiful, handmade special occasion cards, scrapbook layout pages, scrapbook albums, recipe books, card keepers, bags with tags and cards along with many other handmade crafts and odds & ends!

    We now even have a Copic Markers Certified Designer on our staff! So, watch for stamping projects and other beautiful creations made with Copic Markers.

    We're new to blogging and are going to try to show you something new that we've made at least once a week. Since we've just started our blog and website we ask that you please be patient with us as we try to get the hang of it.

    We think you'll like what we do and we can't wait to get our site finished so you can see our creations! If you have something you'd like to tell us or a special request please feel free to email us at

    We hope you won't be disappointed with DoodileeBoop, but please remember, we're just starting out and we hope you will give us a chance to prove ourselves and earn your respect. We do ask though that you please be respectful of others. Constructive criticism is a good thing but if it is your intention to post mean or hateful comments, this isn't the place for that, please go elsewhere. We will not tolerate vulgar, abusive, mean, nasty or racist remarks, period. I once saw a bumper sticker that I really liked - “Mean people suck.” Please don't be mean.

    Thanks for stopping by and have a craft-tastic day! We hope you enjoyed your visit and will come back soon to see our updates.
