Boo Crew

Hello Craftin Desert Diva's Fans! Today I want to share with you a planner spread and planner shaker dashboard I made using our New Boo Crew Bundle!








For my planner spread, shaker dashboard and planner clips I used the following CDD Goodies:

Boo Crew Svg Stamp Outline
New Fall Harvest Sequins

To create my shaker dashboard first I took a sheet of the Doodlebug paper pad included in the bundle and trimmed it down to fit my personal planner. I then used the largest of the crazy stitched frame dies to add the stitching around my dashboard. I then cut off a 1/2" strip on the left side and saved it to be able to punch the holes, but still have it match up perfectly with the rest of the shaker. Next I used some of the Doodlebug washi tape from the Boo Crew Bundle to trim the top and the bottom of my dashboard. After that I used my fuse tool and created a 1/2" pocket for the small strip. Next I placed the rest of the matching paper inside the second pocket I created and filled it with some of the new Fall Harvest Sequins, and then finished sealing my shaker dashboard with the fuse tool. After that I used a hole punch over the 1/2" decorative strip of paper so that it would fit perfectly inside my planner. Next I cut the svg outlines for the Boo Crew stamps from plain white 110 lb. card stock and then stamped the images onto them. After that I colored in all of the images with Copic markers, and then used my sticker maker machine to attach them to the front of my dashboard. 

Next for the planner clips I used the bow die from the Shaker Tag Dies and the skull from the Boo Crew set to create the sweet bow. Then for the mini shaker clip I used the Mini Shaker Clip Dies, Doodlebug paper from the Boo Crew Bundle, the little witch stamp from the new Boo Crew stamp set, and the new Fall Harvest Sequins. Lastly the little Ghost and Pumpkin clips are from the new Boo Crew Bundle in which each bundle will randomly receive either a ghost or a pumpkin.







Next to create my planner spread I used many of the contents from the new Boo Crew Bundle. First I cut out the little haunted house from the Doodlebug paper pad and attached it to my planner. I then used the Doodlebug washi tape from the bundle to accent the top and bottom of my planner pages. After that I added the Cute little trick or treaters from the Boo Crew Bundle stamp set all along the bottom of my planner spread to create my scene. I cut them out using the svg outlines just like I did on my shaker dashboard. To finish I added little flags to accent certain days using the mini shaker tag dies and cut them from the Doodlebug paper.

After that I cut my square card mats from plain and patterned card stock and then cut the round oval mat  and grass border from plain white card stock as well. I then used Distress Ink in Mermaid Lagoon, Peacock Feathers, and Cracked Pistachio to blend and create my background onto the plain white card stock. For the clouds I created a stencil with card stock and then used it as a mask while blending over the top with Mermaid Lagoon to create the illusion of clouds in the sky. I then created my flowers to match my girl by cutting the base flowers from plain white card stock and then again using Distress inks in the same shades of colors I used for the Flower Girl. To finish I attached all of the elements to my card base, and then added rhinestones and ribbon for some extra embellishment and shine. Thank you so much for stopping by, and I hope that you are inspired to try out your own creations with these Adorable stamps!
