Hey guys! Today, I’m sharing my latest Doodlebug Design Team Project and this one was reeeeally fun! It's a jar shaped Halloween mini album that has a shaker on the cover filled with little rainbow sequins. So cute! It makes the perfect small scrapbook for photos of pumpkins, parties, costumes, and Halloween shenanigans.
I designed this with the Sweet &
Spooky Collection and a cutting file called Happy Haunting, Jar of
Eyes (links below). I tweaked the file just a bit to create the shaker & I'm loving the pretty colors of those sequins!!
To make it, I used my silhouette machine and cut out the album covers and pages. I glued a piece of Stardust acetate behind the front window and layered some foam tape and white paper to create space for the sequins to float around in. Then, I glued black chunky twine around the edge to hide the tape and tied a cute bow around the top.
Inside, I covered each of the white pages with a different 6x6 print. Then, time for the embellishments! On the first page above, I added the clip board for journaling, some candy icon stickers, and a few puffy stickers.
For more photo space, I made a haunted house flippie with white paper and a This & That sticker. Then I tucked an acetate tree in the back and added a few more puffy stickers. I love that these are shiny.
These pages would be great filled with pictures from school, a costume party, carving pumpkins, and "spooky" trick-or-treaters!
I like to mix up the shapes of my photo mats for interest. The one on this page was made with a 3.5” scalloped circle punch and a 3” circle punch (links below). It's cuter than a rectangle and it's the perfect spot for a family photo!
I love this little cluster of pumpkins. Different sizes, different colors, and even some shiny ones!
The Bits & Pieces make perfect journaling spots - add names, dates, events, locations, or notes. The flippie on the right has a funny saying but it's the 3 little trick-or-treaters just above it that I really love.
I hope this Sweet & Spooky jar shaped mini album inspires you to create something fun. If you’ve never played with a Silhouette machine, I encourage you to try it! Doodlebug has so many adorable files to choose from that match each collection.
Below, I’ve added the product links for the supplies used to make this album, including the Silhouette machine. Happy scrappin’!!
