Halloween at the park layout for Doodlebug Design

This is Halloween, this is Halloween... Pumpkins scream in the dead of night... :) 

Halloween season is back and it's time to start scrappin' some Halloween photos. 

For this layout, I used the brand new Halloween collection called Monster Madness and I created a fun and colorful ghost page.

I just love the new collection and all the cute designs on the patterned papers. I, of course... LOVE the one with all the googly eyes and needed to fussy cut those out. I also adore the one with all the clouds and decided to fussy cut some of those too. 

I started the page by creating three grey clouds, using a dabber and black ink. I made those by smearing the ink in circle shapes until I had those circles forming a cloud. 
Then I used a pencil and traced around the corners to make them stand out more and separating them from the white background. I sprinkled paint in gold, white and pink and let everything dry.

For my ghosts, I just drew all the shapes on white and colored cardstock and cut the pieces out. Then I assembled everything, after giving the shapes some color with my Distress Oxides. I added detail with my black pen and white acrylic pen. I love how cute they look and the eyes are inspired by the super cute googly-eyes patterned paper... But I'm sure you already guessed that ;)

I used a photo of myself when I was at Europa-Park a few years ago. I matted it with some pieces of paper from the 6x6 paper pad. For the title, I used a sticker from the 12x12 sticker sheet and some My Type alpha stickers.

I adhered my ghosts and the photo to the page and then embellished with all the fussy cut elements, stickers, enamel shapes and jewels. 

I really love how cute it turned out with all the little eyes and clouds, hehe... :)

Have a great Halloween season, 
see you soon,

Autum Day layout for Doodlebug Design

Wednesday, October 5, 2022

Okay... So summer's officially over and I need to turn the page... which is always super hard for me... :) I LOVE summer!!! Here in Luxembourg, fall is not always super beautiful, it's not the warm orange and yellow kinda fall, it's the grey, cloudy and cold kinda fall. But I'll light some candles on those rainy days and I'll be fine. At least the scrapbooking collections are pretty. Here's my first layout with this older Doodlebug collection, called Pumpkin Spice.

I did it again! I chose a patterned paper and started cutting out all the little designs. This time, it was leaves. So after cutting them out, I needed to decide on a design for my page. I decided to go with this plus sign shape. I matted my photo with two patterned papers, adhered it to the background, then started placing my leaves on top and bottom and on the sides of the photo. I also chose three Doodle Pops that I placed between all the leaves.

I then gave the leaves some dimension by pressing the centers down with my fingers and adhered them to the paper using liquid glue. I used watercolors and added some yellow in some places between the leaves. Then I went through the Odds&Ends die cuts and chose leaves, ladybugs, acorns, pinecones, mushrooms, birds... 

I added the leaves using foam squares and adhered them to the page using some tangled thread underneath. I also adhered the other die cuts with foam squares to make them stand out.

At the end, I added watercolor splatters in teal and orange and enamel dots and jewels. For my title, I chose two words from the Chit&Chat die cuts.

I hope you like the fall vibes and are ready for Fall photoshoots and scrapbooking.

See you soon,
