October 31st Collection: Duo Pocket Treat Holder by Tya

Hi there Doodlebug fans - its Tya here up on the blog today to share with you my October 31st Collection project. Can I just say - I LOVE Halloween! It really is one of my favorite holidays! One of the best things of course is being allowed to eat lots and lots of candy! So today I am sharing with you a little tutorial on how to make a cute little bag with 2 pockets you can fill up with treats! 

These little guys are so quick and easy to make and take no glue - its just a little scoring and folding! These would be great for classroom treats or Halloween party favors! Let me show you really quick how I did these -
1- Take an 8x8 inch piece of paper. Lay it on your scoring board and score right down the middle at  the 6    inch mark. Then score at 5 1/2 and 6 1/2.
2- Rotate your square a quarter turn to the next 2 points. Score at 4 and at 8.
3- Fold the 2 sides in. They will overlap.
4-Fold the paper over on the center score mark - the pockets will be on the inside.
5-Now fold the top flap up on the top score mark.
6- Fold the other side on the other score mark.
7 - This is what the pocket will look like once you have folded on all the score marks.
8 - Punch a hole in the top.

So easy and so fun right?
Here are few of the ones that I made. I used lots of pattern papers from the October 31st collection. I also used some stickers from the Icon Sticker sheet and some glitter sprinkles. For the tags I used a 1 1/2 inch scallop punch and a 1 1/4 inch circle punch .I used some Happy Halloween Doodles for the tags. The bag is topped off with some cute ribbon and the brand new Doodlebug Chunky Twine!

Hopefully I have inspired you to make a few of these for your special little trick or treaters! Candy always tastes better when it comes in a cute package right? Happy crafting everyone!

October 31st Collection: 2 Cute 2 Be Spooky Layout

Hi Everyone!  It's Kathy today with a layout using the ADORABLE October 31st Collection.  My daughter is older, and I can't always get costumed pictures these I went back a few years and found this gem... take a peek...

This was the first year my daughter went with a more "scary" costume... of course she was way too cute to be spooky....  I fell in love with all the patterned papers in the October 31st collection, and couldn't decide which ones I wanted to use so I went with a grid pattern and used them all!! 

I used the stickers from the Icon Sticker Sheet to decorated some of my squares... I love Doodlebug Critters!!!

And only Doodlebug can make a spider cute!
I love mixing and matching alphas so I used some Doodlebug Chippers and some Skinny Cardstock Stickers for my title.  That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by!!

Hello Doodlebug Fans!!

Piali here, today I have some fun Halloween themed projects to share with you all.
October 31st is super cute & Fun collection!!!
 I made few Halloween cards..

I used the 4x4 prints and Doodlepops for this card.
I also added few mini tag stickers & Sprinkles.

 How cute is the owl??
Quick & easy using diecuts, stickers & sprinkles.

I also used the washi tape and diecuts from the craft kit.

Nowadays , we are not allowed to give out candies in my daughter's school for Halloween.
I got some pencils and stickers for her friends.

The Mini pockets envelopes are perfect size for the stickers.
I made some envie-tags for the kids.

 I tied the envelopes to the pencils using Doodlebug Twine.

I embellished the envelopes with the diecuts from the craft kit.

I love how this turned out...super cute and fun!!

October 31st Collection: Trick or Treat Layout by Mendi

Hello Doodlebugs!  It's Mendi here today and I'm extra excited to share my layout today using the ultra cute October 31st collection!  I dare say this is my favorite Halloween collection, ever.   I just love the addition of the aqua blue to mix things up!  I have been holding onto these photos of my kids for awhile now just waiting for a collection to come along that they would match with. 
I love the little haunted house icon sticker so I used it as a focal point to create my little scene around.  I like to group my embellishments in three's to create a visual triangle which directs the viewers eye throughout the page and helps add balance.
For the second point in my triangle I layered a punched circle over a black sticker from the This & That Sticker sheet.  The fence from the icon sticker sheet and an owl doodlepop completed the grouping.
For the final point of my visual triangle, I added a simple pumpkin sticker layered with a kitty sticker popped up with foam tape.
I hope I've inspired you to dress up your own scrapbook layouts using the visual triangle principle.  I love how it can help take the guesswork out of embellishment placement!  :)

October 31st Collection: Treat Filled Haunted House by Jennifer Beason

Hello Doodlebug fans! Jennifer here to share my "not so scary" haunted house. The October 31st collection has so many fun and spooky characters. I  knew I had to make them a place to call their own.
And since Halloween is all about the candy, I attached a box to the front of my house, to hold all of those yummy treats. The sides of box are made out of foam board and thick chipboard was used for the bottom.
The design for the house can be found here. I cut the image of the house out of thin chipboard with my Silhouette, to use as a template. The template house was then mounted to foam board and hand cut out.  I then had a blast covering the house and box with patterned papers, die-cuts, stickers and other embellishments from the October 31st collection. Here are a few close-ups of the treat holder.
Thanks for joining me today, Jennifer.
