Good morning! Welcome to Day 1 of the Papertrey Ink August countdown! August is our autumn and halloween release and we have so many great things to show you in the next 5 days! With products ranging from fun and cute and truly elegant, there's sure to be something for everyone.
Today I get to show some projects using this month's installment of the Dress Up Dolls series. Dress Up Dolls: Halloween is filled with two different costumes - a pumpkin and a ghost, plus a handful of accessories to get your Dress Up Dolls all decked out for some Halloween fun.
The new Dress Up Dolls: Halloween stamps and dies, along with anything else I mention as "new" in today's post will be available for purchase beginning at 10pm Eastern on August 15th from the Papertrey Ink website.
First up is a fun card that uses the Dress Up Dolls: Basics and both costumes from the Halloween set. There are striped tights, and also a pumpkin bucket or a trick-or-treat bag for them to hold. There is even a tiny cat head that can peek out of the pumpkin bucket! Everything on the dolls was colored with Copics.
To create the background I used the In the Meadow dies for the ground and that tree in the background is new and you'll be seeing and hearing more about that in the coming days! The sentiment here is also from the Dress Up Dolls: Halloween set.

Up next I have a couple of fun tags. I used the ghost costume from the Dress Up Dolls: Halloween set, but topped it off with a witch hat from Kay's new Spooky Smiles set. The ghosts are holding lollipop "brooms". I created some larger sucker brooms several years ago which you can see in THIS post. I made smaller versions here for the Dress Up Dolls to hold using Dumdums.
To make them I used yellow tissue paper. I cut a strip of tissue paper first and wrapped it around the sucker, starting where the wrapper ends, to cover the sucker. I trimmed off the excess so it was even along the bottom edge and just covers the sucker. Then I cut two strips of yellow tissue using the Easter Grass die and wrapped those around as well, securing everything by using a strip of 1/8" ScorTape along the entire edge of the Easter Grass diecut. I wrapped some black baker's twine around the top as well and tied it into a bow.
The cute little ghosties are each holding a treat bucket/bag along with their brooms. They are each attached to a Tag Sale #7 base, which was stamped with a sentiment from the Dress Up Dolls: Halloween set.

Lastly today I have a little magnetic paper doll set using the Dress Up Dolls: Halloween set. I recycled a mint tin and decorated the cover with a scalloped frame from the
Inside is a sweet little paper doll set using the Adhesive Sheets and Magnet Sheets. I also created a backdrop for her using the Night Sky Cover Plate.
All of the paper doll bits and pieces fit in the lid of the tin and can be moved around and mixed up. Just a fun little treat that's not candy!
