Doodlebug Design | Ghost Town Trick or Treat Side Step Card

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!

Doodlebug Design | Ghost Town Box Card

I'm so excited to be kicking off a couple of weeks of Ghost Town inspiration!  Doodlebug Halloween Collections are always some of my favorites!  The little critters and icons are always so stinkin' adorable!  When I saw the little pumpkin patch stand image in the Odds & Ends pack, I knew it would make the cutest little box card.  Take a peek...

The little stand is made from the black side of the Moonlight Magic Cardstock.  The awning was pieced together using the 6x6 versions of the Hoppy Halloween and Treat Yourself papers.  I made the sign using one of the sentiment strips from the Chit Chat Pieces.

Of course I HAD to add one of the cute little Spider Celebration Shaped Sprinkles.  The spider web is from the Icon Sticker Sheet.

I then went to work adding the sweet little Odds & Ends! The pumpkins are just adorable and of COURSE I had to add the little black kitty!!

 I had a hard time narrowing down my choice of Odds & Ends!  Be sure keep checking the blog for all new Ghost Town inspiration!  And if you've used Ghost Town in any of your projects, be sure to tag Doodlebug Design on Facebook and Instagram so we can see!  That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek.

Doodlebug Design | Pumpkin Spice Gift Set

I'm excited to be kicking off a couple of weeks of Pumpkin Spice inspiration!  I love Fall.  It is my favorite season.  The apples, pumpkins, warm sweaters and colorful leaves just call my name!  Needless to say, the Pumpkin Spice collection makes me ridiculously happy.  I decided to put together a Pumpkin Spice Gift Set.  It would be perfect for a good friend or a favorite teacher, take a peek...

As soon as I saw the adorable little to-go coffee cup image in the Odds & Ends Pack, I knew I wanted to make a 3D version!  I started with this file from Lori Whitlock, and put it together using the Forest Friends and Autumn Weave papers.  The cover is made from the new Bumblebee Buffalo Check-Woodgrain cardstock.   For the face, I borrowed some pieces from the Coffee to Go SVG from the Cream & Sugar Collection.

The cover comes off so you can add a sweet treat!  Maybe some pumpkin spice donut holes??  Just a suggestion.

To go with my sweet treat, I thought a good cup of Pumpkin Spice coffee would be perfect!  I made a this little tote which holds 2 K-Cups using this SVG file.  I used the Doodle-Cuts Large tag die for my tag, and decorated it with pieces from the Pumpkin Spice Odds & Ends and Chit Chat pieces.  I covered the top of the K-Cup with a 2" circle and added another chit chat piece and an acorn sprinkle from the new Happy Fall Shaped Sprinkles.

Have you made any projects using the new Pumpkin Spice Collection?  Make sure to tag Doodlebug Design on Facebook and Instagram so we can see!  We always love to look at your creations!  That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!

I got to play along early created a fun card using this sketch from PageMaps.

Here's my version of the sketch using some fun new Pumpkin Spice Collection!

The leaves are cut from some papers from the 6x6 pad using the Flea Market Fall Leaves SVG File.  I stitched them into a wreath and then added some of the Happy Fall Shaped Sprinkles, the cute little squirrel from the Odds & Ends Pack and the sentiment from the Chit Chat pack.
