Ghouls & Goodies: Black Cat Mini Album by Shellye

No one does Halloween like Doodlebug Designs!  The very first Doodlebug piece that I purchased (back in 2003) was a sheet of ghost stickers...I've been a fan ever since :)
Today I have a chipboard "Black Cat Mini Album" to share using the
new "Ghouls & Goodies" Collection.

I found the  precut chipboard album at Michael's...I loved the fact that the pattern was so easy to trace around and quick to cut out.

For the eyes I used the "O" letter stickers from the brand new "Chippers"
chipboard alphas.  The centers of the eyes are just punched paper and adhesive 
glittered Sprinkles.  The whiskers are two black Pixie Sticks that I cut down
and then hand-stitched onto the paper!  Just thread the sticks like a bugal bead and 
your good to go!



I used the 6X6 Ghouls & Goodies paper pad to die-cut the mats from
on all of the inner pages.  



Basic supplies like Teensy Type stickers, brads, twine and buttons
will always compliment any of your Doodlebug projects!



After you have all of your inner pages decorated, think about adding some twine around the edge of the pages.  It hides the not-so-pretty hand-cut paper edges, as well as the gray chipboard.  Just use a fine-point glue pen and really press the twine down into the glue...such a nice, finished look!

 Thanks for letting me share with you today!
