It's day 2 of Mr. Bones' Halloween Spook Out! Are you ready for another day of Halloween inspiration?
You can play along with me and Mr. Bones by sharing your Halloween themed projects: at Nichole's blog, there is an InLinkz list to post your Halloween themed projects. You will be able to post until September 5th 11:30PM EST. There are ten $10 gift certificates that you will have an opportunity to win by playing along!
Today, I have some Halloween scrapbook pages and a cute Halloween card featuring Mr. Bones and his buddy Punk.
Mr. Bones and Punk are ready to wish your friends and loved ones a Happy Halloween when you send them this festive card.
I started off with stamping a 3"x4" piece of Rustic Cream cardstock with spider webs in Fine Linen ink - a great neutral pattern to add the other card elements to. I tucked Punk under Mr. Bones' arm and now they are ready to head out on the town for some trick or treating. (If you are into Project Life - the 3" x 4" size of the focal image is perfect for tucking into your pages.)
I added the 3" x 4" focal piece to the card front - that is accented by a spiderweb die cut - and now it is ready to deliver!
Webster is sharing his past project pick a little early into this post because it ties right in to the next project that I am sharing today. If you have been following my blog for a while, you know that I create personalized tags for my girls, nephews, and some close friends for the holidays. This assortment was my tag design from last year using the Halloween Sweets & Treats set I designed that debuted last year.
I use the tags that I create on treat bags or gifts for that year and then save the tags to use on a scrapbook page from that year. Today, I have the pages from last year that I did for my girls that will be added to our family's Halloween scrapbook. The girls were the Disney princesses Tiana (Tacy) and Belle (Hana), wearing dresses that we had bought when we were at Disney World in November 2010.
I used the tag along with a a few other elements: a circle that is stamped with a sentiment and the spider web from the Mr. Bones set. I also die cut the year with the Modern Alphabet Numbers from black glitter paper that I picked up at my local craft store.
I actually try to do photos of the girls by themselves for their pages, but last year it didn't happen and so I chose 2 different pictures of the girls together for their pages. I kept both layouts very similar. It helped me complete the pages quickly and helps unify the pages for that year in our album.
Hana's tag also has a water spot from who knows what, but I personally think it just adds to the charm of what the tags are used for!
Thank you so much for joining me today and also for sharing the Halloween projects that you have created! I hope that all of you take time to "hop" through the projects that are shared over at Nichole's blog. See you again tomorrow for more spooky fun!
