Halloween Mini Album Gift with Doodlebug Designs

Can it really be the end of October?  Cooler temps, candy shopping, and Halloween costumes?  Already?  Where did the year go?  Well, I'm glad I have Candy Carnival to help me get ready for the fast approaching end of the month festivities!  I've done several mini albums with this fun collection and this one will be a gift!

I think mini albums are a wonderful gift since some families don't have time, or desire, to create photo keepsakes for themselves.  They want to save the memories, but maybe they aren't paper-crafters, hate the smell of adhesive (ha ha) or have never heard of Doodlebug Designs (gasp!).  We need to help!

Give mini albums as gifts!  The recipients will love such a fun and unique way to save their memories!  For this one, I used several of the 4x6 journaling cards to add lots of fun spaces for notes.  I also added stickers from the This & That sticker sheet on the tabs for a cute pop of color down the right edge.

I love how the star sprinkles give the pages extra shine and color!

I just can't get over the Odds & Ends in this collection ... cutest costume kids ever!  I hope I've inspired you to make some mini albums for gifts.  Trust me, the recipient will be amazed with your creative and thoughtful gift!

Candy Carnival Mini Album

Does anyone else out there hoard DoodlePops like I do?  There's just something about these adorable little layered embellies that makes me SO happy!  This is why is was actually really hard for me to use so many throughout my newest mini ... but I did it!  And I love how they look, especially on this bright cover.

I don't know which is my favorite ... the googly-eyed spiders or the little costume kids!  
I used 12x12 patterns for this mini and cut tickets out of the Candy Carnival sheet for the tabs.  They were a better size for the album tabs than the die cuts.
I also used icon stickers throughout the album.  I cut most of the star burst stickers in half so that I could use the other piece on another page in the album.
That cute little doodlepop bat is from the Edward doodlepop that I used on the front cover.
This is one of my all-time favorite halloween collections from Doodlebug because of the colors!  I love how bright and fun the pages of this mini are.

I hope I've inspired you to have fun with your DoodlePops ... or if you're like me, buy two so that you can use one and hoard one (wink)!  
Happy scrapping friends!
