Booville Collection: Halloween Scrapbook Pages by Mendi

Hello Doodlebugs!  It's Mendi here today with three fun layouts using Doodlebug's newest collection for Halloween called Booville!  Every year I fall more head over heals in love with the latest Halloween line and this year is no different.  I was so excited by the addition of the color pink that I couldn't resist scrapbooking several pages using photos I've been holding onto for years.

For my first page I isolated the purple, green and aqua papers from the collection to match these photos of my oldest daughter.  She dressed up as a classic comic book character so I created a simple grid design to ground my focal point images and cute stickers.

This collection includes some super cute eye sprinkles which look cute all on their own, but even cuter when layered over critter stickers and doodle pops like I did for the little bat and frog.

For my next layout, I kept things simple.  Sometimes I have some pages where it's more about getting my pictures into albums for us to enjoy and not spending endless hours on my embellishments.  This was the case with these, but thanks to all the adorable papers and die-cuts in the collection my page can still be cute.

For my little patch of pumpkins I mixed the die-cuts from the odds and ends pack with two doodle pop pumpkins.  A custom title with the new Abigail alphabet stickers completed my page.

For my last page I was inspired by all the houses dressed up for Halloween in the border along the top of my layout.  I recreated the scene on a larger scale on the bottom of my page using the cute die-cut houses from the odds & ends pack.

I typed up my journaling on my computer and printed it out on vellum so that it could be fairly invisible on my page.  I then layered it with the cute trick or treating boy and girl and hand stitched a simple line to hang my spider sprinkle from.

All of these pages came together super quick and could be easily recreated in an evening.  I hope I've inspired you to pick up this adorable collection and get some of your favorite Halloween memories recorded too.  Thanks so much for stopping by today.

Booville Collection: Halloween Cards by Courtney

Isn't this collection ADORABLE!?!? No one does Halloween like Doodlebug. They make spiders and ghosts and all things spooky sooooooo cute! Courtney Lee from Court's Crafts here with a couple of cute and quick cards for Halloween fun!

Okay, are you READY for this!? I was moving houses... but then the move got delayed for over a month.. so we were couch-surfing with three children... and I had literally nothing to craft with... So I borrowed my friend's scissors and her scotch tape (I kid you not) and went to work! This was my own personal challenge and I had a blast (and a few frustrations of course). 

The card bases are from the create-a-card halloween assortment. Aren't they fun!? I had another one planned but couldn't quite complete it before I had to write this post. boo. (haha. get it!?)

I cut out the black with pumpkin panel from the 6x6 paper pad on the sheet with the small squares and awesome sayings (see sentiment as well). My biggest frustration during this process: not having foam dots. I wanted to pop this panel so much!

The pumpkins on the side and the black cat (how cute is that cat!!!??) came from the mini icons (LOVE). The gorgeous shiny candy corn is a shaped sprinkle and the dots came from the halloween treats sprinkles and the halloween assortment glitter sprinkles

For my second card I really wanted some doodle pops on there. But truthfully I started with those adorable spiders!!!! 

I wanted to get that acrylic spider web in there (I mean, seriously!!!) and I used rolled up scotch tape behind the spiders to stick it down (yep!). 

Then I added the spiders and drew spider web lines down to them. 

Lastly I created my little scene at the bottom with the adorable doodle-pop couple and their rainbow heart (from this and that) showing their love. swoon. haha. :) 

Thank you for hanging out with me (and the spiders) today! We would LOVE for you to share with us on our Facebook page what YOU have created with Booville!!!!

Booville Collection: Trick or Treat Mini Album & Box by Traci Penrod

Hi everyone!  Traci here, back to share my Booville project with you.  This is absolutely one of my favorite Doodlebug collections ever!  The colors!!!  I had so much fun with this little mini album and coordinating box.
I covered a 7 Gypsies box with different 12x12 papers, and used some chunky twine to add a little something extra around the edges.  I adhered a raised chipboard rectangle to the top of the box so that my twine would fit around the sides.  The Doodlepop Witch and Frog are so cute, and I paired them up with glitter sprinkles and some die cuts to make my lid complete!
Inside the top of the box lid, I added some card stock, pattern paper, and a cute 4x6 Trick or Treat card.
The little mini album inside was super easy.  I cut some 4x6 cards out of black chipboard and covered each side with adorable papers.  I punched two binding holes in each card before I added photo mats and embellishments, and then came the fun part!
Have you played with the new mini icon stickers yet?  They were originally introduced for planners (super cute idea), but I love using them in my mini albums too!  Those little houses are precious don't you think?  And the little Frankie and cars in the photos below?
I also used lots of DoodlePops in this mini.  I have a bad habit of hoarding my DoodlePops, so I had to make myself use some of them! 
That's it for me today!  Thanks for stopping by!  Have tons of "spooky" fun with this collection everyone!!

Booville Collection: Trick or Treat Layout by Caroli

Hello there, how are you peeps? Caroli here, and today I am so pleased to show you some layouts I made using the fabulous Booville Collection by Doodlebug Design.

I love Halloween, I love dressing my kids up and going out to trick or treating, and I have a lot of pics of past Halloweens that didn't scrap before because I was waiting for the right collection, and here it is!

My first project is this layout I made with pics of my little girl dressed as Monster High's Draculaura, few years ago. She was so excited about wearing a wig for the first time, we had a great time that day :)

My fave product from DD these days is Odd&Ends packages, so I wanted to use a lot of them on my layouts and in the middle of an embellies cluster I pu a round shaped pic, classic!

I love all the clear acetate shapes included on the package, there spider webs are perfect for placing under a pic here and there!

The colors and patterns of the papers in this collection are so bright and happy, I used a sunburst design so as to feature lots of them, this is a good way to include lots of patters without making the project too busy.

My second layout is about my little girl again, or should I say not so little anymore? This is from last year and as you can see, she picked a totally different custome, this time as Harley Quinn. I must say I had no idea who Harley Quinn was, so I googled and tried to improvise the custome as better as I could. 

Once again I used a lot of Odds&Ends and some Sprinkles as well, I love how the little round pic pop from the embellies block.

I am in love with the tiny acetate ghosts included on the Odds&Ends package, they are too cute to spook and I love the transparency effect over a photo

I created my tittle combining Teensy Alphas and a word I cut using my Silhouette Cameo using free font is Sacramento.

Last but not least, this is a layout I made with a pic of the first halloween of my little Mr. I made a tiny t-shirt for he to wear and we went out trick or treating in the stroller with his sister and some friends. 

I went for a simple design on this one, creating a big embellishment block below the pic. You can tell I kind of went nuts using all kind of sprinkles, the spider ones are my fave in this collection, they are boo-tiful! :)

I really enjoyed working with this collection, the colors are so pretty! I love that it has hot pink and teal colors, although they are not traditionally halloween colors, they look great along with other colors

I still have few halloween pics I'll scrap with this pretty collection, I'll share what I make on my instagram and on my blog as well. I hope you got some inspiration from this post and now are printing Halloween pics :) Have a lovely day!

Booville Collection: Planner Love with Jomelle Gomez

Hello Everyone! Are you excited about Halloween as I am? Halloween is one of my favorite. I love decorating my house and trick or treating with my kids. I also love dressing up. I get to be whoever I want to be every year.

I am super excited for Halloween this year so I can take my almost 2 year old daughter. My husband and I haven't decided what costume she's going to wear.

Using the Booville collection, I decorated my TN cover insert. I am planning to use this for my memory keeping. 

I am so in love with the eyes on the cardstock. I knew I wanted to use it for the cover. The odds & ends came with some acetate pieces. I decided to use the spider web acetate because you can still see through the eyes in the background. Of course I just had to add the spider where he belongs, on the spider web.

I just love how the odds & pieces are peeking out of my pockets.

I also decorated the first page of my TN.

I just couldn't leave the left side of the page blank.

I used a pop up adhesive to elevate the house since the tree is behind it. It has that 3D effect when you look at it.

Here is my weekly layout during Halloween. I used the mini cardstock stickers to decorate my layout. They are perfect to use in my planner pages.

Our family loves going to a Pumpkin Patch Farm every year. 

I used the Abigail Cardstock Alpha and Number Stickers for the Month and the Days of the week.

Thank you for stopping by! I can't wait to start decorating my TN with pictures when we go Trick or Treating.
