I like all things spooky and when it comes to October, I could scrap Halloween layouts and mini albums every day :) I love the new Doodlebug Halloween collection, called Happy Haunting, and created my very first layout yesterday. I like the bright colors and I love that there's some pink in the collection. :)

For this layout, I went to the Silhouette store and chose two of the older Halloween cut files from Doodlebug, the pumpkins and the ghosts. First, I let my machine cut out all of the pieces, then I assembled all the parts of the pumpkins and adhered them to some white cardstock. I hand-stitched around the whole design, using color-matching thread. To give the pumpkins more detail and dimension, I added shadows and highlights, using Distress Oxides and a white pen. Then I cut the design out, leaving white borders. 

For the background, I did some easy mixed media. First I added color using my Gelatos and a baby wipe and then I added some stars with a stencil an my Distress Oxides. To finish, and make it more interesting, I splattered white paint on top and let everything dry.

For the ghosts, I just added some color around the edges with my Oxides and then adhered them to some vellum using foam squares and ripped the paper around the ghost, leaving a distressed, transparent border.

I knew that I wanted the pumpkins to be on the bottom of the page but I didn't really know, where I was going to place my ghosts.

After some playing around, I decided how I wanted to place the photo and the ghosts and then I started going through the die cuts and stickers to find some more things to add. 
I really love the naked, spooky trees in the background and the little bats, flying around... ;)

To top the layout off, I added some colorful stars, a worm sticker and a cute little shaker pumpkin on top of the other pumpkins. LOVE IT! :)

I hope you like how the layout turned out. Thank you so much for stopping by and see you soon! :)

The Halloween season is one of my favorite seasons, the costumes, the fun and the sweets... I wouldn't want to miss it!

Today I created this wonderful project that would make a fun gift for a family member or a special person.

I made the box from scratch with my cardboard technique since I needed a firm and solid structure. The box is covered with the beautiful Happy Haunting collection.  Inside, there is a place for three glass jars to which I added fun borders and covers.

I painted the caps black with a spray, filled the jars with sweets and decorated the tops with some labels from the Chit Chat Pack. I love the result! I added some Doodle Twine to the jars for a fun detail.

On the front of the box I created a scene with the Odds & Ends and this beautiful ghost Doodle Pop.

I say goodbye wishing that my work will fill you with a lot of inspiration!  I wish you a wonderful Halloween!
