trick or treat layout with pixie frames | and a doodlebug giveaway…

Good Morning friends!  I’m taking over the Doodlebug Blog this morning, sharing a fun way to use the new “pixies” on a Halloween layout featuring product from the new “Halloween Parade” collection!


Wait…before I go on – just in case you aren’t familiar with this fun new product – here’s exactly what I’m talking about when I say “pixies” – they are kind of like little plastic straws in fun Doodlebug colors:

They also come in sets with banners/flag toppers to coordinate with the new collections – I just love the Halloween Parade set:

I decided to cut the pixies in half and use the pieces to create frames.  They aren’t exactly perfect, but I think that it adds to the whimsical feeling that Halloween should exude!


I printed out photos (2 1/2” square) from last Halloween and used the pixies to frame them.



I also framed some patterned paper (from the 6x6 pad) and added fun stickers, tags, and other embellishments.


Of course I couldn’t resist using the fun and colorful star jewels, washi tape, and doodle twine too!


What do you think…do you like the Pixies?  Can you think of some fun ways to use them?  If you can, you need to hop over to the Doodlebug Blog ASAP and leave a comment with your idea – and a chance to win a set of Halloween Parade Pixies and Toppers for yourself!!
