Day 8 of 13 Days of Halloween Boo Mini Album

Standard

Hey there fans of Halloween! Ginny here to share the project I created for day 8 of our 13 Days of Halloween Tutorial Series on our YouTube channel. I’m working with some fun Dollar Tree supplies and the Howl collection from Fancy Pants Designs.

This sweet little album started out as a humble spiral bound index card notebook. I think it’s glow up is a success! I’m also using some not so spooky stickers from the DT to embellish the cover and pages inside. A little trim, some fun charms and sequins and this cover is perfectly festive!

These tabbed dividers were included in the cover so I added some holiday words made with my old school Dymo label maker.

Since the cards inside are a standard index card measurement of 3 x 5 I was able to get the maximum use out of a 6 x 6 paper pad creating very little off cuts.

I removed all but 12 of the cards inside so I could add all the patterned paper layers without so much bulk. This is still a chunky album though once all the cards were covered!

I sorted the patterned papers in the tablet into the larger all over prints and the smaller more compact designs so I could use them as layering elements without the pages looking too busy.

I utilized the remaining stickers not used on the cover to decorate the inside.

An assortment of glitter papers are die cut into star shapes and added to the book using glue only in the center so pictures can be slid underneath for a fun layered look.

I treated each set of pages as a 2 page layout since you can see them both at the same time. This book will be so cute when pictures and memories of the holiday are added : )

Make sure you come back tomorrow for day 9. Wishing everyone a happy and productive day : )

Day 6 of 13 Days of Halloween Travelers Notebook

Standard

Hey there friends! Stopping by to share the project I created for day 6 of our 13 Days of Halloween Tutorial Series on our Youtube channel. This was a very special day as I was joined by my good crafty friend Amber from Lyric Lover Crafts. I had so much fun working with her to create fun and festive projects. We decided to both use the same Boo Crew collection from Simple Stories and our theme was to choose a tutorial from each others channels that inspired us to be creative. If you have not checked out Amber’s channel you will find so many inspiring projects! I chose to make her traveler’s notebook that she shared during her Christmas in July series. I made a few adjustments to add my own personal style and I’m so happy with how it turned out!

Please join me for a tutorial….

You can find links in the top of the description of this video for Amber’s project. Make sure to visit her channel and leave a little love from the Polly’s Peeps. Don’t forget to subscribe to her channel for loads of crafty inspiration. Big thanks going out to Amber for joining me on the series!

Day 4 of 13 Days of Halloween Gable Box Memory Keeping

Standard

Hey there friends! Ginny back with day 4 of our 13 Days of Halloween Tutorial Series on our YouTube channel. Today I’m creating a non traditional scrapbook in a festive gable box.

I thought it would be fun to use some open stock papers instead a collection pack. I found so many cool patterns at Joann’s and Hobby Lobby. I’m also using those super sweet Halloweeny stickers I picked up from the Dollar Tree.

This gable style box is super easy to create even without a fancy die. I used 110lb cardstock so it would be very sturdy.

There are 2 arrangements here created with some ready made and some made by me flowers. I’ve included some netting and glittery leaves to fill in the display.

Instead of the usual book style of memory keeping I’ve added 4 A2 sized cards each with a fun decorated cover using more of the great stickers.

These cards are finished on the inside and back as well to you can layer on your holiday pictures and memories then tuck them into the box to add to your seasonal decor.

Day 3 of 13 Days of Halloween Slimline Card

Standard

Hey friends and ghostly crew. Welcome to day 3 of our 13 Days of Halloween Tutorial Series on our YouTube channel. Today we’re creating a slimline greeting card loaded with so many festive details.

I’m using the Halloween Party collection from Echo Park and pairing it with perfectly coordinating flowers made by me.

Because of the generous size of the slimline format I’m able to include 2 flower arrangements along with some festive charms, and a doily die cut from pretty metallic paper. A few sequins and a clip and this card is ready to make someone’s holiday way more funner.

Standard

Hey there friends and crafty peeps! Welcome to day 2 of our 13 Days of Halloween Tutorial Series on our YouTube channel. Today we’re creating a fun tri-fold pocket folio.

This folio is created with the I Love Halloween collection from Echo Park . I love the traditional colors mixed with the purples and greens. It gives it a much more updated palate.

Inside there’s loads of pockets and folded inserts.

Plenty of room to add your families favorite pictures and memories.

Day 1 of 13 Days of Halloween Gatefold Cards with Bellybands

Standard

Hey there gouhlfriends! So happy to welcome you to day 1 of our 13 Days of Halloween Series on our YouTube channel. This is my favorite series of the year and I have loads of crafty inspiration planned so I hope you will join me for this fun tutorial series.

Day 1…..Gate Fold Card with Bellyband

For this card I’m using the A Little Scary collection from Fancy Pants Designs. I picked up the 6 x 8 paper pad along with the ephemera pack and have had so much fun creating different combinations for many projects.

This card has the same base and band design but I switched out the collection to one with a more traditional Halloween color palate. This is the Trick or Treat collection from Echo Park. I was able to utilize the fun images I picked up from the Dollar Tree to decorate this card.

Spooky Slimline Halloween Greeting Card

Standard

Hey there friends and crafty peeps. Ginny here with some spooktacular inspiration.

I am bewitched by this sweet little Halloween friend. Did you see what I did there? Bewitched?

This is the A Little Scary collection from Fancy Pants Designs. I picked up the ephemera pack along with the paper pad and had so much fun layering up all the festive images.

The slimline profile is great for adding an extra large arrangement of made by me flowers.

The wrinkle ribbon coordinates perfectly and helps to fill in and anchor this corner.
