I can’t believe Halloween is just around the corner. I have always loved Halloween. From when I was younger and went Trick or Treating, to when I was older and spent the evening with my dad and sister dressed up and scared the kids who came to our house (we always had the best house at Halloween, everyone came back year after year). It was so fun!!! And now that I have my own son it’s so fun watching him get dressed up and run from house to house so excited to get candy from everyone. Needless to say I love the holiday. It’s sort of a welcome to the holidays. I mean once Halloween hits I feel like in no time you’re welcoming in the New Year b/c Thanksgiving and Christmas come so fast in between.
Anyway, it has been awesome to team up with American Crafts this month. I absolutely loved working with the Pebbles Thirty One Collection of paper and embellishments they sent me to work with. Along with their fabulous designs and my Designer templates I made a couple super cute things to share with you today. I also have a little giveaway to give to one of you lucky readers. 🙂 So make sure to read below for details.
First up My Halloween Decor for my picture frame. You know I see so many cute printable sayings for the holidays around my friends homes and on Pinterest but I decided to use my Kiwi Lane Templates along with my Halloween Paper/Embellishments to create this which I think is WAY BETTER than a plain printable, what do you think?
- Photo Set: 5”x7”
- Spook Alley: 1A
- Adorn: 2A
- Tiny Holiday: 5T
Next I decided to pre-make a two page layout. Have I told you I love all of the Holiday D.T. Sets from KLD? Well I totally do. I don’t get to use them all that much but now that the holidays are ahead of us I’m sure I’ll be using them a ton in the upcoming months. Unfortunately I must have deleted my before FRAMED photo I took of my layout with my phone. (I always try to share those with you but can’t this time.) Hoping to use this for my sons Halloween photos from this year so that’s why there aren’t any photos just yet. 🙂
- Spook Alley: 1A, 1B, 2A, 2B, 3A, & 3B
- Halloween: 1, 2, 3, & 4
- Tiny Holiday: 4T & 5T
I’m in the process of moving to a new home with my family so pretty much everything is packed up from my scrapbooking supplies. I had really wanted to add photo corners to this page and so I thought what can I do? My corner punch is packed away…. Well, I took my 1” Strip Set and cut the 1” strip across my 12” paper (you could do it with any size paper) and then used my paper trimmer to then cut that long 1”x12” paper into 1” squares. After doing that I simply cut them in half from one corner to the other leaving me with a triangle photo corner. Worked out great and was just what I needed.
