HAPPY HARVEST - Doodlebug Design

 It is almost time to shift to the jolliest time of the year, but let's take a chance at one last project with the beautiful Farmer's Market  collection.

I started my page by creating the grid background for the page.  I cut a few of the patterned papers into 2.5" squares, and then attached them to the center of a Pettite Print paper.

I added a bit  of dimension to each of the squares and also hand drew a stitching line with white ink gel so that it brings more of quilted look to the grid. 


The pictures were backed with papers from the  6x6 paper pad, then placed in the center of the page.   I used a selection of embellishments to each side of the pictures to complement the story.

Just love all the beautiful pieces in this collection.  The little chicks are just so darling, and hard to pass up!

I am in love with the Farmer's Market  Chit Chat pieces, they were the perfect way to construct my title and add a few extra sentiments to the page.

I  hope that this gives you a bit of inspiration for your Fall layouts before we completely switch to the newest Christmas collection.

November 2022 Trailblazing Inks Release + Giveaway ($300 in Total Prizes!) | Dye inks with a brand new look and adjusted formula Blog Hop Details

Hi there!
Welcome to ALTENEW 2022 TRAILBLAZING INKS RELEASE + GIVEAWAY BLOG HOP. You are arriving from Emily Midgett's blog.  A list of all the hop participants is available at the bottom of this post for your convenience.

Today, the long awaited round ink pads from Altenew, are live; and the new color sets are just sublime.  The vibrant new ink pads are great and of excellent quality.   But, let's talk about the shape of the ink pads.... well, let me show you what I created with the new "round" ink pads...

As soon as the new Trailblazing ink pads arrived, I knew that  I wanted the colors and shape of them to be the background of my page.

I used all the new ink pads in this spread.    My idea was to create a grid of round colorful circles in the background of the  spread.  I used a ruler and a pencil to create ghost lines, then stamped the ink pads onto the cardstock.

Once I placed the title in the center of the page.  I used the Flower Delight bundle to create the embellishments for the page.  Black and white is the perfect complement to the color in the background.

To continue the shape of the stamped ink pads on the background; I trimmed my photos to circles and added them forming a triangle on the page.    I framed them each with some of the florals and small word phrase stickers.

I finished the spread with a few enamel dots.   Just love how this turned out, and it took no time to put together!!

HELLO FALL - Doodlebug

 Fall is here! and we are loving all the leaves falling, the pumpkins, and all the bountiful harvest around. The new Farmer's Market collection is just perfect to bring those fun last visits to the local market before it closes for the winter.   

I wanted to combine lots of color and patterns in one spread. So, I cut strips of the 12x12 patterned papers and layered them from the top edge of the base.

Once the photos are in place it was all about embellishing the page.  Starting with the cute banners at the top of the page.   I love how this frames the picture nicely on the page.

I had so much fun playing with all the embellishments from the Farmer's Market collection.  I simply clustered them to the left and right of the pictures.

I had to add all those cute pumpkins  just like in the photos. There are so many little stickers that you can easily bring tons of details to the page.

The new Doodle Cuts "Hello Fall" is amazing.  I  used the word die to create part of my title. I simply cut it from two patterned papers, glued them together with a bit of an offset, then glued it to white cardstock. I used a pair of scissors to cut out the word -with a white shadow-from the cardstock.

I love how the spread turned out.  All full of color and Fall feel.  Remember to check the  Farmer's Market collection, you are going to love it all!
