A Well Crafted Halloween


Alexa had a few friends over for a Halloween crafting party last month. I put off scrapping the photos because a) I wanted to include quite a few photos and wasn't sure how I wanted to go about it and b) if you can believe it, I haven't bought a Halloween collection in years! I was able to cobble this page together with little bits and scraps from my stash.

The ghosts are cut from a frosted KI Memories paper, most of the stickers are from Bella Blvd.'s Too Cute to Spook collection (2011) and the background paper is from Simple Stories Year.o.graphy, a collection that has nothing to do with Halloween. So we're definitely talking an eclectic mix here.

The adorable character brads are from My Mind's Eye Boo to You collection, another oldie but goodie. :) The "bed-lam" tag is from a pair of pajamas.

This page is probably the heaviest I've ever made. There are eight photos on here, although you can only see two. Six more (4x6) are inside the polka dot bag. I created a library-style pocket from cardstock for the photos and then tucked the pocket into the bag, along with the journaling.

Here are a couple of detail shots, each featuring one of the MME brads. Inside of the frame:

I should probably freshen up my Halloween stash, so I'd love to know what your favorite collection is. :)

  6. Very clever use of non-Halloween papers and products! I like the ghosts coming out of the corners. I don't buy themed papers often either so it is always great to see how people work without them.
