Doodlebug is just one of those manufacturers that gets me every time. Honestly….what is not to love about the bright and bold colors, jewels, and sugar coated goodness! Today’s Halloween kit is simply PACKED with delicious goodness!
I had so much fun creating this weeks sketch.
I had a request from our Facebook Fan Kristina MacKeen for a little help with a one page landscape style, single photo layout. I hope that this works for what she has in mind!
I set to work taking photos of my little guy in his Halloween costume and realized that my favorite photos were all taken portrait style, so I decided to merge 3 of them together in Photoshop to create a landscape format photo to work with the sketch.
I was seriously giddy over this Doodlebug collection. In fact so many of the papers have velvety textures that I sat at my desk just ‘petting’ them!
I LOOOOOOOOOOOOVE all of the chipboard and of course the sugar coated brads and ribbon that come with this kit. Honestly I could not have asked for an easier grouping of embellishments to work with to complete my page!
And of course…you know me with my journaling…always have to tell the story. This sketch allows a decent sized area to preserve the who’s, what’s, when’s, where’s and why’s!
I admit I don’t usually scrap an overwhelming amount of Halloween photos so I wasn’t quite sure what I would do with another fantastic Halloween kit. But after creating this weeks Mojo layout, the ideas kept spinning and a party plan came to mind!
Everything in this kit works so well together and is so cute, that I thought it would make the perfect collection to make invites and cupcake toppers for a “Ghoul’s Night Out”.
These cupcake toppers flew together simply by punching out a 2″ circle and adding stickers and a few embellishments.
The invite was very easy to make. I simply took a sheet of paper and cut it to 4 1/4 x 7″ and scored the paper 1 1/2″ from the top and folded it down. I used my zig zag scissors to cut the edge to give it a little variety. I added some of the chipboard, a button a few embellishments, some ink and badda bing, badda bam! DONE!
