Booville Collection: Trick or Treat Banner by Wendy Sue

October is just around the corner, which means I've already started decorating our home for Halloween! Hi Doodlebug friends, it's Wendy Sue here today to admit I couldn't resist making a fun trick-or-treat banner with all of the cute little trick-or-treaters in the Booville die-cut pack! Here's how the banner looks hanging in my kitchen:

And here's a closer look at all of the pieces:

Each flag consists of a circle-shaped base (I actually used a die-cut meant for making a mini album):

Each base has a strip of black cardstock in the center.  Before I added the black piece, I used a star embossing folder to add texture!

Next, I added two different styles of doodle tape to the top and bottom of each black piece.

Each trick-or-treater was placed on the black piece with foam adhesive - I just love adding extra dimension to my banners!

I used doodle-pops, sprinkles, and additional die-cuts to embellish each trick-or-treater and his background.

After all of the trick-or-treat flags were complete, I punched two holes in the top of each flag.

Chunky twine is perfect for stringing any banner!

It's worth another look to notice the CUTE shaped sprinkles and doodle pops in this collection!!

And in the middle of the trick-or-treat parade is the perfect place to add some words!

And with that, I'm off to make something else with the Booville collection to add to my fun and colorful Halloween decor!

Booville Witch's Hat with Kathy

Hi Everyone!  It's Kathy today with a fun project featuring the adorable Booville Collection!  Halloween has always been a favorite of mine, I love the costumes, the decorations, and of course... the candy!  My girly is in college now, so no costume pictures for me, so I decided to make a fun Halloween centerpiece this year, take a peek...

As soon as I saw this Witches Hat cut file, I knew I had to make it!  I decided to make it a centerpiece for our table this season.  I added a number of 3D and Rolled Flowers by Lori Whitlock and then set to decorating it with the adorable Booville Embellishements!  Here are some close-ups...

I love Doodlebug Odds & Ends !!  They are such a fun way to embellish projects.  I especially love the acetate ones, like this ghost I used on the front of my hat.  I also added some Icons Cardstock Stickers, the kitty and the pumpkin.

I've said it before and I'll say it again... only Doodlebug can make a spider cute.  I love the little Silly Spiders Shaped Sprinkles.  I added them to the acetate spider web (which I cut in half)  from the Odds & Ends.  I also included a "mommy" spider from the Odds & Ends.

The adorable ghosts in the Booville Collection are one of my favorites.  I added one from the Odds & Ends and another baby ghost from the Sweet Spirits Doodlepops.

The Eye Candy Shaped Sprinkles are the perfect embellishment to have peeking out between the flowers!  The little bat is from the Cute Critters Mini Doodlepops.

The best part of this centerpiece... it's actually a box that you can fill with some sweet treats!

That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!

Booville Collection: Halloween Card Set by Anita Bownds

Hi there Doodlebug peeps 
Anita here sharing some cards and a layout created with the fun doodlebug collection 
Booville , I thought I would make some cards cause those Doodle pops are just so stinking cute!

My first card I used the orange file tab card and chose the same colours
As the little boy Doodle pop
Matting the patterned paper on top then a few strips of patterned paper in the centre then a die cut doily 
Then a mini doily and added him in the centre 
Cut out the sentiment and backed it with black cardstock 

The second card I was thinking bright colours 
I used the fabulous candy patterned paper just so cute to matt on the background of my card from the card pack 
Using the same design as the first this time adding a border punched edges

And I decided to add something inside of the card
Happy Halloween and a few die cuts circles and some fussy cut pumpkins 
Along with the broom from the little girl Doodle pop

With my third card I thought it would be so cute to add that little house Doodle pop to the centre 
Of the small card from the card set using the black and white stripes for the background 
And a little sentiment at the bottom 

And I decided to make a layout using a photo of our cat Luna 
As she's sweet like candy!!

I went with a simple design and used a 4x6 photo I wanted the main focal point to be around the photo 
I started with washi tape to bring more black into the layout then adding that candy paper off centre 
And a few strips of that black and white striped patterned paper using scalloped edge scissors to add a decorative edge to the patterned paper strips then I placed my photo and matted it on 2 different patterned papers and adhered it down 

Then I decided I needed some flowers and using my cameo machine I cut 2 designs out flowers and leaves 
And backed them with patterned paper and using the Doodle pop little pumpkins I added them to the centres of the flowers I thought this would add a cute little touch and then I added the leave just tucked underneath the flowers 

Then it was time to add a title with those cute new alphabet stickers I used beetle black and the gold

And here is a close up of my photo 

here is a process video of how i created my layout

I hope I've given you some inspiration!!
Happy crafting..xx
