Pumpkin Party - Mad Monday Layout | with Melinda

Living on a farm in Australia means there's absolutely no way I'm going to ever have photos of my children Trick-or-Treating! Dressing up yes, putting on weird make-up yes but nothing to do with door knocking and collecting sweets from neighbours. However, that does not mean I can't use a Halloween themed collection like 'Pumpkin Party' on a layout, especially if the colors are perfect.
My daughter recently finished her football year and it's tradition to celebrate 'Mad Monday' after the season finishes. So, this year her groups of friends wanted to dress as Minions, and my daughter took it one step further and dressed as the 'Purple Minion'. She looked so cute!






















I recently purchased a pair of fringing scissors so worked on a layout style that would allow me to give them a go. The new Petite Prints worked perfectly as I was able to choose the same pattern but run with different colors down my heart shape to create the fringed backdrop for the photo.
I just adore this tiny floral on the Petite Prints and the flip side is just as cute with a gorgeous grid pattern. And yes, those two objects are buttons!!! I say a big 'yes' to bringing back the humble button on layouts and cards, which is why I was really excited to see the 'Spooky Town Boutique Button Assortment' as part of this Halloween collection. 

I journaled around the heart using up my Doodlebug Candy Shoppe tiny rub-ons... I'm getting close to running out of this staple so will be sad when I have to go back to hand writing. I hope I've given you inspiration for putting together a fun non-Halloween layout using our Pumpkin Party collection and the new Petite Prints.


Pumpkin Party Planner Pages | with Jomelle

It's Halloween Party Time in my Daily Doodles Travel Planner. Halloween is just around the corner and I'm getting more and more excited. As I mentioned in my last blog, Halloween is my jam. I just love everything Halloween has to offer.

I'm just excited to share with you what I have created to add to my Halloween Set Up. I am still using the Buffalo Check Daily Doodles Travel Planner. I am also using the same Monthly Insert.

The Monthly insert comes with a couple of extra pages after each month. For October, I created a layout for memory keeping. I am planning to add my kids'  picture with their costumes when they go Trick or Treating on Halloween.
On the right side of the page, I used the black card from the pumpkin party assortment cards and envelopes. I layered it with another paper from the 6x6 paper pad. I will add the picture inside the card.
On the left side of the page, I will journal about Halloween Night.
Planner girls love to use washi tapes to create dashboards so I decided to use the Halloween washi tapes to create a bookmark/page marker.
Here are all the washi tapes I used.  I took another piece from the pumpkin party assortment cards and envelopes. I laid out the washi tapes diagonally on the blue card and I cut out the excess tapes. 
There you go, you have a cute little bookmark/page marker.
I created another bookmark/page marker that can also be used to store stickers, odds & ends or sprinkles.
I just cut up one of the 12x12 paper to the size I want. I added these 2 clear square self adhesive pockets that I got from the Dollar Spot at Target. Super easy to make.


I also want to show how easy it is to create a simple insert cover.
I just picked a 12x12 paper from the Pumpkin Party and I cut it to the size of my insert. Once you have the right size cut up, you can just fold it in the middle and there you have it.
You can place the insert and add it to your Daily Doodles. Super easy but still looks cute. You can create as many cover inserts as you want to add to your Daily Doodles.
For those of you who are not into "planning" the Daily Doodles Travel Planner can be used for memory keeping. Just think of it as the smaller version of your 12x12 layout. The best thing about the Daily Dooldes is that you can carry it with you when you travel.

I just want to share my memory keeping pages  I created when I went to Doodlebug Headquarter in August.

 I was able to meet Traci, one of the Design Team member and of course we had to take a picture with DB very own Cynthea. These girls are both super sweet.
I also asked all the girls who attended to sign my insert.
 Some of you may ask, I got the cute Halloween pen when I went to DB head quarter. It was part of the goodie bag we received. Super adorable huh?

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you all have a Franken-static Halloween!

Pumpkin Party Photo Crate | with Traci

Happy Fall everyone! Can you believe we're just a week and a half away from Halloween? I love this season and it's always a really fun time for craft projects. I decided to combine memory keeping and halloween decor for this post, by making a photo crate.
I decorated the outside of my crate with DoodlePops and glitter sprinkles, and filled the inside with file folders, photo cards, and envelopes. I will tuck photos into these pieces after halloween and always have a cute decor piece to set out each year.
The file folders were cut with my silhouette machine (here's the link for the folders, and here) and each folder is held closed with those precious jelly clips!
The paper is from Pumpkin Party and the new dots/stripes petite prints.  
In addition to the file folders, I also used cards from the Pumpkin Party Card Assortment. Since I'll be adding photos to these pieces, I decorated them like mini scrapbook pages. I should have called this project the "DoodlePop crate" ... I used so many (12 I think)! 
Finally, I tucked in a few decorated envelopes.  I'll add photos to the outside, and include stories, journaling, and additional photos in these.  
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
I hope you'll visit me over at Artsy Albums sometime!
