Doodlebug Design: Life is Like a Box of Chocolates

Like most people, I have a deep weakness for chocolate, so of course I love all of the adorable images of chocolates in the French Kiss collection!

A couple of years ago my son went to a high school Halloween Dance with his date dressed as Forrest Gump and Jenny. I took these cute pictures of him before he left and decided to use the Chocolate Box Shape Sprinkles and the Box of Chocolates digital cut file to recreate a larger version of the Sweetheart Doodlepop sticker from the collection.

I measured the chocolate shape sprinkles and then resized the Box of Chocolates cut file to fit them. It was so much fun filling up my heart shaped box! If only I could take a taste! They look so delicious!

I used the Lily White Abigail Letter Stickers to spell out my title. I placed the top half of the title on vellum clouds created with the Clouds cut file. I resized and reproportioned the banner from the Boy In Airplane cut file to house the word “chocolate.”

I added more vellum clouds to the top of the layout along with a few Heart Throb Shape Sprinkles. So cute!

I placed one of my photos on the red card from the French Kiss Cards & Envelopes. I love the way the bracket shape adds a fun design element to this part of the layout. I tucked in a few flower and chocolate die cuts from the Odds & Ends pack in the lower corner and then added a few Chit Chat phrases to the bottom.

I loved playing with the cute chocolate images in this collection so much! Next, I think I will make a page documenting my LOVE of chocolate. What will you use them for?

Scrapbooking About Our Pets

Our pets hold a special place in our hearts and lives. They are our faithful companions. They are always there for us when we need a friend, a hello, or a warm, fuzzy snuggle. They definitely deserve a spot in our scrapbooks, don’t you think?!

I have had dogs my entire life, so there was no question I wanted them to be a part of our children’s lives. We have two little white pups we love and adore!

But because we always had owned dogs, I never even thought about adding a cat to our family  … that is, until one day last fall when my daughter was visiting a friend whose cat had just had a litter. She texted me photos of her holding the most beautiful, black kitten that had bright, blue eyes … and I was immediately smitten!

I couldn’t stop thinking about that sweet boy! And a few weeks later, right before Halloween, Ozzie joined our family. ❤

He is our Halloween kitty and we ADORE him! I completely understand cat loving people now and wish that we had gotten one sooner. They are simply DELIGHTFUL!!!

Jana Eubank Simple Stories Happy Halloween Kitty Layout 1 600

I used the Simple Stories Simple Vintage Halloween collection for this photo. I created a cluster of elements at the top of the page anchored on a punched half-circle of the Pumpkin Time paper.

A cluster of the Bits & Pieces die cuts anchors the chipboard title overlapping the top of my photo.

The spiderweb and banner sticker hug the bottom right corner of my photo and lead your eye towards the journaling strips.

The layout is built on the Snap Basics Walnut/Cream Dot paper, then matted with the Chestnut/White Dot paper and Little Monsters paper (LOVE the storybook look of this fun paper!).

Simple Stories: BOO to You! Layout

Halloween holds so many wonderful memories for me. It’s a holiday that I am sentimental about, so it probably doesn’t come as a surprise that it is one of my favorites to scrapbook! Today I’m sharing a new Halloween page with you using the Simple Stories Simple Vintage Halloween collection.

I love the layered look of the stickers and other elements in this collection. It was an easy choice to add this banner sticker to the top of my layout.

One of the 4×6 Vertical Elements cards had a layered look to it. I cut around it and added it behind my main photo, with a few more stickers and Bits & Pieces. I LOVE the die cut of the safety pin holding the back tag. It looks so cute overlapping the top left corner.

I used another sticker with a layered look at the bottom of my photos. I tucked a black die cut ticket behind it and then added a couple of chipboard elements on the right, overlapping the adjoining photo.

I wanted the layered pieces to be the star of this page and opted to build my design on a simple Hickory/Cream Grid Snap Basics paper background. Along the left side of the page, I added a splash of color with two strips of the Trick or Treat patterned paper, sliced at an angle and zig-zag stitched for interest.

This collection has a bit of a spooky, vintage vibe that I thought would be perfect to scrapbook my son and his friend.

WILL DO TRICKS FOR TREATS

Jana Eubank Scrapbooking Store Authentique Nightfall Tricks for Treats Layout 1 600

I fussy-cut the big spider from the cut-apart sheet and then added a few die cut spiderwebs using a metal die from my stash.

I also fussy-cut the witch from the cut-apart cards and used her to accent the title block.

I clustered several stickers here to accent the bottom right corner of the photos and add my date.

The solid black pinstripe paper made the perfect background!

BOOTIFUL

This next page features my daughter in her Gypsy costume!

I used the cream pinstripe background for this page. I also pulled the Carta Bella Give Thanks & Leaves Die Set from my stash to cut several leaves as page accents.

A cluster of three circular elements in different sizes accent the left side of the page. The pumpkin circle was punched from the cut-apart sheet, while the other two circles came from the sticker sheet.

I used my electronic die cutting machine to cut the title for the page (Bootiful Day by Lilium Pixel SVG #274167). I used a stamp from my stash to create the circular journal block and then added texture to the bottom edge of the photo block with a notebook paper border punch.

The final magical touch I used black gems from my stash in a few places around the page.
