 Halloween is tomorrow!  Do you have your costume ready?  How about the candy?  I may have eaten some of mine and had to make another trip to the store for more!!  I also made one more card using the adorable Ghost Town collection!  Take a peek...

I love the Odds & Ends pieces.  They make it so easy to create little scenes for cards and layouts!  For this card, I started with a step card base.   If you've never done a step card it's easy!  I did a tutorial for a Doodlebug Christmas version here if you need.  Once I had the base cut, I started putting together my little scene...  I used a number of the Odds & Ends pieces and stickers from the Icons sheet to create it.  The trick or treat word bubble is from the This & That Sheet.  It all went together very quickly and it folds flat for mailing!

If you use the Ghost Town Collection for any of your cards, layouts or projects, be sure to tag Doodlebug Design on Facebook or Instagram so we can see what you created!  That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!

Hey friends! Erica here with you today sharing my very first layout using the new Ghost Town collection from Doodlebug Design.


I really wanted to create a layout and document little Liam's new best friend Jack. I created a cut file in Silhouette Design just by typing out the word Jack. I then welded the letters together and made them larger so they were a big statement piece on my page. Next I created an offset and then grouped everything together.


 I really wanted to keep this layout simple and only use black, white and orange. I picked out some papers from the Ghost Town 6x6 paper pad and backed the cut file piece I created in Silhouette. I really love the black and white pattern paper and think it is the perfect match for Liam's Jack Skellington.


Liam was so excited for his new Jack and he takes him everywhere! I printed a couple photos out in black and white and they are sized about 4x4. I matted them on a couple pieces of pattern paper from the Ghost Town collection.


 I wanted to create sub title to the layout so I used the Sunshine Alpha in Beetle Black to spell out The Pumpkin King. I used one of the super cute Ghost Town doodle pops under the title and then added my typed journaling block.


To finish off the layout I added a cute scallop border sticker from the 12x12 Ghost Town sticker sheet and a strip of black and white stripe pattern paper to the left side of the layout. Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope you enjoyed my layout. Sometimes it is nice to keep it simple and I just love how the black pops on this page. Have a great day!

GHOST TOWN "BOO'D" BAG | with Shellye

You've been boo'd!  What a fun way to share surprising little gifts with neighbors and friends this Halloween!  The concept is quite simple: fill up a bag, basket or box with treats and a message that they've "been boo'd" turn, they pay it forward by boo'ing someone else.  

For my box, I've upcycled a cereal box and incorporated pieces from the "Ghost Town" Collection:

To start, I began by cutting a cereal box in half (it's easiest if you disassemble the box, cut and glue).  

The box then measures 7.5X2.5X5.5. I covered the half-box with patterned paper before re-gluing.  

The front was decorated with the "BOO" cut-apart cards, Doodle Pops and letter stickers.  I also added paper handles to the sides.

To the inside of the basket, I tucked a little premade notebook that I covered with strips of washi tape and added a Jelly Clip to the top!  Next, I used one of the larger Create-A-Card envelopes and added paper treats inside :)  The outside was decorated with one of the sweet die-cut houses, sticker letters and held together at the top with two mini clothes pins.

I wanted something to hold small bars of chocolate, so I die-cut a pillow box from patterned paper, wrapped it in ribbon and made a cute tag!

Finally is a package of handmade bows!  I made these using two of the Doodle Cuts Mini Tags and a large brad:

From the set of little dies, you could actually create an array of different sizes and shapes.  For these particular bows, I folded the rectangular tags in half and glued. I lined up all four of the tags (for one bow) by matching up the tabbed holes and then inserted a large brad through to hold them all together!  I left the tails so that they could be positioned out horizontally or folded down.

I used one of the 4X6 cards as a base for attaching the bows. By using a repositionable glue dot, the bows won't slide around and can easily be removed. The sheet of bows was placed inside a cellophane bag and topped with a fun bag topper!  I make my bag toppers by simply folding a piece of paper in half and stapling to the top.

Now that the bag has been filled, I can add a typed note of instructions (found on Pinterest) for how the recipient can boo the next person! What great fun...I hope you'll try it!

Hello Doodlebug friends, who else is excited that Halloween is right around the corner!? I couldn't wait to craft with the adorable new Ghost Town collection and I  had so much fun creating this little mini album. 

I painted a small chipboard album I had on hand with acrylic paints, but if you don't have a chipboard album you could easily make your own. I embellished the cover with a Ghost Town Chit Chat die cut word and the adorable ghostly Little Boo Doodlepop. I then added some long strands of Doodlebug Design Chunky Twine for fun. 

I documented photos from the whole month of October. Here I have a photo of my new favorite October treat - a yummy Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew! I used the 6 x 6 paper pad to make backgrounds for all of my pages. I embellished this first page with the This & That Sticker Sheet, the Halloween Night Shape Sprinkles, and the Spider Celebration Shape Sprinkles. 

Sometimes all you need is a couple cute Odds & Ends die cut pieces and a couple stickers to make a cute filler page! 

The Ghost Town collection was also good for documenting our trip to pumpkin patch. How cute is that little die cut that says Pumpkins?! 

Here I used the This & That Sticker Sheet, Odds & Ends die cuts, and Shape Sprinkles on this page. 

The Odds & Ends Die Cut packs are always some of my favorite Doodlebug Design embellishments! What are your favorite Doodlebug embellies?! And did you see the cute little gray mouse hanging out under the tree? 

Thanks for joining me today! I hope I have inspired you to grab some of the adorable Ghost Town collection for your next project!
