Xyron has teamed up with Doodlebug all week long to bring you Halloween inspiration! Thanks for stopping by today – I am sharing two cards and two scrapbook pages. Since I have young kids, Doodlebugs paper collection make it easy to create whimsical, fun pages without a ton of effort. The coordinated collections with stickers, twine, and embellishments take the guess work out designing. AND, they even have washi tape?!

This card was a lot of fun to create – it can double as a great table or desk decoration for whoever receives it.

When opened, the card has a a small space for writing a sentiment and is decorated with stickers. All of the elements were die cut with a Sizzix Big Shot machine and then adhered with the Xyron 3″ Sticker Maker. To add dimension, some of the elements were adhered with the Foam Squares from the Xyron Teresa Collins Adhesive Kit.

This layout was a lot of fun to create. The whimsical, clean-fun feel of Doodlebug's Halloween Parade collection is perfect for this layout about my daughter's Halloween costume. The colors compliment one another but the imagery helps communicate the fun, happy, and exciting feel of the photos and journaling. We did it- we made Katie's costume! The bar is set kind of high for this year and now the girl is expecting a steampunk, sewn from scratch, garment. But, that is ANOTHER blog post…

This layout is a quick study and easy to replicate with any papers for any theme. All you need is the Xyron 1.5″ Create-A-Sticker  (aka “the X”), Xyron Mega Runner, Xyron Foam Squares by Teresa Collins, and the papers and embellies of your choice. Here's how:

And finally, a card using the scraps. Many of these stickers can be used for any occasion when taken out the “Halloween” context – isn't this owl fun and cute on this card?!

  5. Using Xyron 3/8″ Dots add a layered diecut felt flower.
