Pumpkin Parry - Bootiful Fun Layout | with Anita

Who’s enjoying all the fabulous Halloween creations using pumpkin Party?
I always enjoy the fabulous colour palette with Halloween patterned papers, so bright and fun.

I wanted to try something different using twine and mini googly eyed peg bats that I made 
I’ve also created a process video on how to make them yourself!
My idea for this layout was to have the twine like a string of lanterns 
that the bats were holding in the air and to have them holding my photos as well.

I used brads to hang the lanterns and twine for the added colour 
and dimension along with the coloured sprinkles. 
I fussy cut around the ephemera pieces from the Odds and Ends pack 
to take away the white border around them. This is always a personal choice as to whether you want to use the white edge or take it off. It really depends on your project at the time.
I decided on the cute little person with the mouse as he seemed a fitting match to my photo. 
My title 'bootiful fun' was selected from the 'Chit Chat' pack.
I've created a process video of how i created my layout

And here’s my supply list

Pumpkin Party Treat Box | with Kathy

I just love Halloween... it's such a fun time, and there is candy!! ( I have no will power...)  And what better way to package up a sweet treat than with some Pumpkin Party goodies!  I made this cute little house to hold some treats for a friend, take a peek...


I started with this file from Lori Whitlock for the house and tree shapes.  I constructed the house using the Midnight Masquerade and Party Plaid Papers.  I added some Dot-Stripe Petite Prints in Beetle BlackLilac and Citrus for the Tree, Roof and Trim.


Now for the fun part!  I embellished the house with goodies from the Icons Sticker Sheet and the Odds & Ends!  Here are some close-ups...


I just love that kitty!!!!


As a final touch I added one of the Silly Spiders Shaped Sprinkles to the chimney!


The bottom of the box opens up to hold some sweet treats!


Stop by the blog all of this week for more Pumpkin Party inspiration!  That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!

Guest Designer - Otterly Adorable Layout | Christine Meyer


Hi there Doodlebug Fans! Christine from Scrapping with Christine joining you for the final project today!  I have had a blast playing with the So Much Pun Collection!  One of the things that really stands out about this collection is all the little every day moments that you can capture with it! Today I am going to showcase an "otterly adorable" little boy in a colorful layout.

I was absolutely drawn to the otter elements in this collection, because they were adorable but also unique!  I can't remember seeing a cute otter in a collection before and this one was irresistible - so I ran with it!  Pool pictures made it even better because it tied in the water element!

Close-Ups

This cut apart piece from the patterned papers made the perfect complement to my two pictures - finishing out the line perfectly.  Heart embellishments took center stage - first in my stitching, then in stickers!  I had to give each otter a heart to hold too - they just looked like it belonged there!  I popped those up with foam adhesive to add some extra dimension!

I was thrilled that there was a big "otterly adorable" in the Chit Chat Odds & Ends - it made for the perfect title!  Layers of patterned paper made for a quick and easy background with some amazing pops of color calmed down by the print!

Otterly Adorable Process Video

The process for today's layout is also captured in video over on my YouTube Channel.  I always enjoy talking thru the projects and explaining my design choices.  Check it out and say hi over there!


Thanks so much for joining me today - hope you are having  "So Much Pun" playing with this collection too!
