Lots of projects with new digi images

I actually got crafty this past few weeks, it was fun!
I created several cards and a gift tin with some ornaments and magnets, all with the NEW Doodle Pantry releases.

Today, Doodle Pantry is releasing all their new December digi products EARLY, AND having a 40% off everything from today through December 3 (but not including bundled products or fundraiser products)!  Check out NEW products HERE and the SALE info HERE.

This card uses Big Hug Friends.  This set will be a fundraiser for Operation Write Home, so the Thanksgiving Weekend Sale cannot be used on it.  $1.00 of each sale will be collected and donated to OWH!  It will remain in the fundraiser category for 1 year.  We'll be putting new products in the fundraiser category every so often, so there will constantly be new items to buy and help donate to OWH.  Check out the Doodle Pantry Blog on Dec 2 to find out how much we raised with the Missing You/With Heart BUNDLE during November.  Yippee!!
The shape around the worm and ants was a shape I created in MS Word document. Just picked it from the shape pull down menu and gave it an outline in blue. Then I hand cut it out and layered it and hand cut the layer around it.
This card I digitally laid out and printed the whole card front. Then sewed around it and added a few accents before putting it on the folded card base.  I used the new River Raft, Tropical Drinks and the Palm Tree.
The entire card front is digitally created and printed out.  I laid down the duo paper sheet and then added the raft PNG file over the center. I added the little drink on top and then the 2 palm trees, one of them being reversed. Then I just printed the whole panel and trimmed around it to fit on the card front.  I sewed around it and added the little ribbon and brads to accent the middle.
This is a gift set I made for my friend. She loves mustaches!  I made the magnets and ornaments to go into the tin and then decorated the tin to match.  I used the Mustache Mish Mash and the matching SVG cuts that Lori M made.  This was so much fun to make!
I got the little glass shapes from an Etsy shop.  I digitally created images using the digital papers and solid shapes and PNG mustaches.  Printed on quality Neenah cardstock. Then used crystal lacquer to adhere the small ones to the glass pieces and trimmed around the bases. Glued a magnet to the backs. Super simple!
For the ornaments, I die cut the labels die and sewed the little square diamond image shapes onto them, then popped up the SVG cutout mustaches overtop.  For the backs of the ornaments, I glued the string thread down first and then covered the entire back with the matching digital paper.
Here's a couple cards using the Holiday Deer SVG cuts. These are a bargain price!  Very pretty too. The shapes coordinate with the Holly Stag and Merry Deer image sets.  I used the digital paper that comes with the Merry Deer product on the purple card, and used a pretty diecut shape and mini holly corner punch on the green one.

These 3 cards are using the Holiday Deer Quick Card Fronts PDF. I printed the multi-combo PDF sheet onto quality Neenah cardstock.  The multi sheet includes the 3 different color card fronts and 3 each of 2 sentiments.  There are 3 other PDF's, each one having all the same color card fronts.  I used the So much Joy sentiment and diecut it out with the SU mini banners die, but could have easily used the other sentiment on the front or inside.  Add a few embellishments or sew around the panel to make the cards a little more than just a printed base.

Thanks for visiting my blog today!  I hope you were at least inspired to go get crafty and make something of your own to give away.
