Ghostly Haunts with Digi Doodle Studios + a Bag-a-lope Video Tutorial!

Hello friends and happy weekend to you!  Hope that you have some fun included in your weekend.  I’m off to a local craft show with my mom. I have had my own craft booth at the place we’re going in the past, but I honestly haven’t the time or strength to do one this year…so I’m just going as a shopper this time!  LOL

Today I’m sharing this really adorable digital stamp set from Digi Doodle Studios called “Ghotstly Haunts” and I had SO much fun with it that I made several projects using it including a fun video tutorial that may give you ideas for not only your favorite goblin, but for other fun ideas that I’ll reference:

Now how cute are the ghosts in this set?!  As you can see, I had tons of fun creating several projects using the Ghostly Haunts Pairables digital stamp set!

The two projects on the ends are actually what I’ve created for the “bag-a-lope” video tutorial.  If you’ve been crafting for as long as I have, then I’m sure you’ve heard of this idea somewhere along the way.  People buy up those dies, but this way seems so much easier and cheaper to deal with to me.  Here’s the project idea that I share in the video:


This is such a fun and easy bag to create and fill with treats for your favorite goblin!  You can fill with yummy treats or a small gift.  It would be great to put a gift card inside with some tissue or bag fill too!  Not only for Halloween, but for Christmas too!

In the video below, I share how I created this bag along with another fun project using the same idea with just a plain old envelope!  That’s all you need to make these along with your own ideas!  I’ve used the Ghostly Haunts Pairables set to create the fun spider web paper in the background as well as the spider and sentiment.

If you’d like to see how to create this treat bag along with some other fun ideas with tips and tricks, then be sure to watch my video tutorial below or CLICK HERE to view it on You Tube. – If you haven’t yet, please be sure to hit “like”, comment and subscribe to my channel!


As seen in the video, I have also used this adorable set using the same “bag-a-lope” idea to create a fun lumiere using a vellum envelope.  I have printed out an additional ghost and attached him to the clip on the top of the bag.  LOL!

For the spider web strips at the top and bottom, they were the same left over papers that I’ve used on the treat bag above, but for these strips I’ve heat embossed over them with some clear sparkle EP.  It’s hard to see in the photos, but I’ve taken a sparkle glitter brush pen and covered every single ghost on my projects.  I’ve used my Copic markers to color in all of the images after printing out my scenes from the computer.  The sentiment for this project was actually made by myself using a font from my computer.


Here you can see how the battery tea light candles are glowing through the vellum lumiere bag.  I also thought this would be a fun idea for Christmas time as well!

Lastly, I HAD to create a card using this adorable digital set too!

For this card, I created the scene on my computer and prined it out.  I printed it out again over some masking paper.  I cut the images out of masking paper and put them over the printed out scene so I could do the ink blended background.  I actually fussy cut the ghost and popped him up over the tombstone.  I covered him with a glitter brush pen too!  (I’ve also added a touch of “moon glow” on the top of his head.

I die cut the scene and attached it over a piece of purple glitterstock and then die cut the black frame to go over top of the card.  Before adding the frame, I attached the die cut fence and a couple more pieces of “grass” from the digital stamp set.  That sentiment cracks me up!  I sponged over it, added to a black strip and attached it over the card front panel.  This was all attached to an A2 sized top folding card base.

Hope you’ve had as much looking at my projects as I had making them!  Please be sure to check out this adorable Ghostly Haunts Pairables digital stamp set and be sure to check out the full line of Pairables in the store as there are some really great ones!

  1. Giggling here – Vicki, I can just image you seeing these images and getting to work with your vibrant colors, sweet designs, a smile in your heart, and laughter at the outcome! They are darling beyond words, and each one so beautiful! hugs, de


  2. Hey, Vicki! So glad I stopped by after seeing this amazing card on SCS. The card is so beautiful with the cute ghost and your remarkable coloring of the tree. I would have never guessed that you created the bag with an envelope! It is terrific as is the lumiere bag. Great pieces of art, Vicki! Hugs!


  3. Gosh, it’s a long time since I’ve heard anyone mention bagalopes, but they really ought to be used far more often. They’re so practical and this is a perfect example of how a good one should look. I’ve never thought of putting a tealight inside and doesn’t it look good? I love what you’ve done with these. Lovely inking and that tree is fabulous…beautifully coloured and great in either shade. Lovely projects. Thank you for joining Try it on Tuesday’s Halloween challenge.
