Halloween Parade: Pumpkin Mini Album

We're almost done sharing our inspiration with you this week featuring the brand new Halloween Parade Collection. Be sure to stop by your local retailer and ask for this and other great Doodlebug Design products.

Thanks for sharing our ideas with your friends. We hope each time we create a project or feature an idea that it inspires you to create or to share. Today we have a treat for you, it's a darling "Pumpkin Mini Album". It's full of darling match-ups and inspiring ideas!!

by Shellye McDaniel

Note from Designer: "I love using inexpensive pre-cut shapes for mini albums.  I found this pumpkin shape in a set of 12 at Michael's.  Alone the pieces aren't sturdy enough for an album, so I combined two sheets together to form one page...works great!  After tracing the pumpkin shape and cutting out, I used a 4" circle die to cut out the mats.  Be sure to do any machine stitching or brad adding before adhering the two chipboard pages together.  To give a clean edge to the pages, I like to add border of twine; a fine point glue pen works perfectly for this.  I also added twine for the stem on the cover page...just coat with a thin layer of fabric glue and wrap in place."

  4. What a fabulous idea. I know that my little "witch" would love one of these for writing and documenting. Doodlebug just makes the most vibrant of colours with super patterns and images. Love this Halloween set.
