Using Treat Bags for your Project Life Scrapbooking

Hi Everyone, it's Kathy Skou today with a fun Pocket Life layout using some Doodlebug Treat Bags.  I love Doodlebug's Treat Bags...they're so fun and colorful!  And like all Doodlebug products, they coordinate beautifully with a number of collections!   I chose to work with the Limeade Chevron & Swimming Pool Gingham bags.  They're a perfect match for Doodlebug's Day to Day collection.  Here's my PL spread featuring some silly photo booth pictures my daughter and her friends took at their Sophomore Ring Dance.

I chose the Swimming Pool Gingham bag for my title card.  I turned it over, and folded down the flap so you could see the inside color.  The bag made the perfect "container" for my mini photo booth props which were made from some Day to Day stickers and Pixies.

Day to Day was really the perfect collection for photo booth pictures!  Here's a peek at more of my cards...
The insta-frame was cut from one of the Day to Day Simply Put Album Inserts. I stitched on a plain piece of vellum, and filled it with some Doodlebug Sequins for my confetti pocket.  The big bow-tie "photo booth prop" was made from one of the Day to Day Mini Ties & Bow Ties and a yellow Pixie Stick.
 For my final card, I used the Limeade Chevron Treat bag as a tag holder.  I listed the "cast of characters" on the tag.  The bag is perfect for hidden journaling!
That's it for me today...make sure to keep checking the Doodlebug Blog for more Design Team inspiration using Treat bags!  Thanks for stopping by!
