Halloween Layout Showcase and a Challenge


I’m filling in for Melissa this week as she is getting ready to teach some fabulous classes in West Palm Beach at the Scrapbook Expo. If you happen to be in the area, stop on by our booth for some great card Teach-n-Takes.

So this week we will be creating layouts featuring . . you guessed it. . Halloween!

I did mine a little differently since we don’t normally dress up in ghoulish outfits but we do like to carve a pumpkin every year to help us get ready for the trick-or-treaters.

I couldn’t find the right patterned paper so I decided to create my own background paper by stamping over the entire cardstock piece with H-977 Background Basics #1 and then overstamping with the pumpkins from CL-002 Pumpkin Face Mix-n-Match.

I then added my embellishments including the 121007 Jellie Dots in Crystal with the very handy RC001 Stick “Em” Up tool. These work great as centers for your flowers.

Only thing left was to add my photo and title to completed the layout. I hope you’ve enjoyed this layout and are inspired to participate in our challenge of creating your own Halloween layout.

This is so awesome, there's nothing better than creating a unique background using your stamps to convey feelings and texture.
