Boos & Brews - new Doodlebug collection!

Hello friends!! I've got two Halloween projects up on Doodlebug's blog today! I got to play with the new "Boos & Brews" collection created a layout and another page for my birthday calendar.

Normally I don't have a lot of Halloween photos as we don't really celebrate Halloween in The Netherlands (although I think it's increasing every year!), but last year my daughter and her partner went to this Halloween party and I quickly took my chance and shot a few photos! So here's the layout I made with those photos:

I love to combine patterned papers, but I always need a more "subdued" pattern as a base and that's when the "petite prints" collections come in handy! In this case I used a "tangerine" color from the "Boos & Brews Petite Print" assortment to mat the "Weird Science" (black) paper.  

The journaling was typed in Word first and then printed straight onto the tag. To get this done, I first printed the text on a normal white printing sheet, then adhered the tag on top of this with a bit of Scotch tape and fed it into the printer once again.

I adore the little Doodle-Pops like this little frog and the purple bat in the photo above.

And how about the mad scientist die-cut from the Odds & Ends package?! Isn't he adorable!! There are so many awesome embellishments in this collection, I could go on and on ... that spider Sprinkle for example, normally I don't like spiders but this one I love!

Supplies: Boos & Brews collection: Patterned Paper: Weird Science, Trick or Treat Stripe, Bubbling Brew; Die-Cuts: Odds & Ends; Sprinkles: Halloween Assortment Matte Sprinkles, Spooky Spiders, Eerie Eyes; Mini Doodle-Pops: Cute Critters; Labels & Tags; Petite Print Assortment.

And because I just needed to play some more with this collection and everything was still lying on my table I decorated a new month for my birthday calendar, using the "Daily Doodles" collection: here's the October page!

I printed a few photos to add to the page, but not too many as I wanted to use as many stickers, die-cuts, doodle-pops and sprinkles as possible!! One of my favorite die-cuts is this haunted house with all the eerie eyes!

Have you seen the fun "eerie eyes" Sprinkles? I just love those!! The little ghost looked cute with his "normal" eyes, but with the fun googly eyes he's even cuter!

I always love Doodlebug's washi tapes and this collection contains five different tapes!! I think that my favorite is this one, the "radioactive" washi tape!!

Supplies: Boos & Brews collection: Patterned Paper: Bubbling Brew, Daily Doodles; Die-Cuts: Odds & Ends; Washi Tape: Radioactive; Sprinkles: Halloween Assortment Matte Sprinkles, Spooky Spiders, Eerie Eyes; Stickers: Icons, This & That, Daily Doodles Lily White Months; Labels & Tags.

I hope you enjoyed my projects, I had a lot of fun creating them!
