Holiday Doodlebuggin'

Well, you may have figured out that the reason I was spending some quality time with my Doodlebug Design Inc products last week was because I was preparing my submission for their first Design Team call.  I have loved their products for years, so naturally I would love the opportunity to get other people excited about them too!

So far you have seen my layout, and one of my cards.  Today I would like to share with you the rest of my submission.  I think one of the best parts of being a crafter is it gives you a reason to get into the holiday mood early!  I hope these will help get you in a holiday kind of mood too.

I just love Halloween!  This is an 8 inch foam wreath that I wrapped in black tulle.  The fence and the spider were made using the Mini Monsters Cricut Cartridge, and the spider web was made using Paper Doll Dress-Up.  I have the most adorable Doodlebug Design Halloween Jellishments which is where the round purple embellishment (with the spider & web) and the Halloween came from.  I also used the Doodlebug Design Spooky Town Assortment Boutique Brads together with some cute Halloweeny (is that a word?) baker's twine.  Finish with some ribbon, and voila!

And last but not least:

I just love how this turned out.  It's so simple, but so cheerful!  I started with a white card base, and followed with green, and then red cardstock.  The Christmas tree in the center is another one of those cute Jellishments from their Christmas assortment.  On either side of the tree I just cut and matted circles in white and green, then placed candy canes from the Doodlebug Design Christmas Candy Assortment Boutique brads.  I then finished with some Christmasy baker's twine.

If you are a papercrafter then you're probably like me and have been using and loving Doodlebug Design products for years.  But if you're not familiar, head over to their website or their blog and check out their fabulous products - you'll be glad you did!
