Look how cute this Halloween layout turned out! Every quarter I have my Scrap Along class where we make 3 two page scrapbook layouts with different themes. Our themes at my class last Saturday were Halloween, Fall and Thanksgiving. I always have so much fun creating pages for these classes.
To make this layout I used three different stamp sets, Sweet Home from the annual catalog and Labels to Love and Spooky Cat from the 2017 Holiday catalog. All the products I used on these two pages are in the current catalogs (annual and holiday), except the paper I used to make the house. The paper was in the 2016 Holiday catalog called Halloween Night Speciality Designer Series Paper. You could use Smoky Slate paper and if you wanted our Brick Wall Embossing Folder. Do you see the Pick a Pattern Washi Tape on the bottom of each page? How many ghost do you see peeking around the corners?
To make this page you will need the following products:
Pumpkin Pie 12 x 12 Cardstock #145483
- you will need 2 sheets
Basic Black Cardstock #121045
- cut 6 of 4 1/4" x 6 1/4"
- scraps for the bats (7), door, window, cats, oval and 2 punches from Pretty Label Punch
Daffodil Delight Cardstock #1119683
- scraps for the windows
Whisper White Cardstock #100730
- scraps for the ghost (3), Happy Halloween, Trick or Treat and the label on the bottom right hand corner
Did you notice the roof on the house? It is not a piece of paper, it is a stamp! For this part I laid my house where I wanted it to go and then I stamped my roof. It is much easier to stamp the roof first then adhere the house. The house, window, ghost, and bats are cut out using the Home Sweet Home Thinlits.
The cats were punched out using the Cat Punch that coordinates with the Spooky Cat stamp set and the Spooky Night Designer Series Paper. If you buy the stamp set and punch as a bundle, you can get it at a savings of 10% off!
For the sentiment on the house and the top right hand corner I used the Spooky Cat stamp set. The sentiment by the cats came from the Label to Love stamp set and I used the coordinating punch, Everyday Label. To get the black layer behind the label, you are going to punch out 2 black pieces. One piece you are going to cut it in half horizontally and the other one have vertically. On the piece you cut horizontally you will also trim off the edges. Adhere these pieces to the stamped image and you have made a background label for the white label. See picture below.
I adhered everything with snail adhesive, except the ghost by the house and both sentiments on the right hand page. For those I used Stampin Dimensionals to give them some dimension on the page.
Here are some additional pictures.
Now that we have the kitchen finished we are working on finishing the upstairs. We are going through everything as if we are moving, which we are not, and Mr. Wonderful is painting the closets as we empty them. He only has two more to go, but one of them is the master walk in closet. Yep, that one is going to take us awhile to go through. We have new carpet coming in a few weeks and we have to get rid of a lot of things so we don't have so much to move. Thankfully they are going to break it down into 3 days so that will be a big help.
I am very thankful that all of this will be done before Thanksgiving and before when Emily comes home. We are sad though because Erica will not be able to come home for Thanksgiving this year and we are not sure about Christmas. This will be the first time in 22 years that all four of us will not be together. I know our kids are suppose to grow up and go out on their own, but do they have to move so far away?
I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
