    • Leery Layered Halloween Scrapbook Page

      Design by Shannon Zickel

      Layers of papers, photos, and embellishments stack up to create a playful party page. Let a few powerful patterns stand out by sticking with a neutral background paper. Choose graphic embellishments--like the skull and the cobwebs--to complement colorful photos. Tilting pictures, embellishments, and papers in different directions helps convey the energy of Halloween night.

       

      SOURCES: Cardstock, rub-ons, chipboard accents, pen: American Crafts. Patterned paper: American Crafts (stripes, web, multicolor dot), Jillibean Soup (black dot, purple dot). Stickers: American Crafts (skull, "fright night," "October 31"), Making Memories (journaling block), Doodlebug Design (numbers). Ink: ColorBox by Clearsnap.

    • Spooky Skeleton Paper Piecing

      Design by Vicki Boutin

      Easily mass-produce Halloween greetings with a simple paper-pieced design. Make the pieced accent stand out by placing it on a mat and extending it beyond the fold of the card. Just make sure your finished design will fit in an envelope. Thin strips of patterned paper jazz up cards without competing with your main embellishment.

       

      SOURCES: Cardstock: Core'dinations, Die Cuts With A View, Prism Papers. Patterned paper: BoBunny Press (green dot, stripe, circles), Sassafras (orange grid).

    • Bewitching Paper Haunted House

      Design by Erin Clarkson

      Delight trick-or-treaters by covering a chipboard house with fun Halloween-theme papers. Convert a decorative brad into a doorknob and use textured cardstock to mimic the moon's surface. Flock adds a realistic touch to bat wings, and witches appear to fly with help from dimensional adhesive squares.

    • Pretty Pumpkin Halloween Scrapbook Page

      Design by Angela Ploegman

      For a clever twist on your pumpkin carving photos, document the pumpkin's life journey, from growing in the patch to glowing on the porch. Use your paper crimper to add texture to die-cut or purchased letters. Gem embellishments add a bit of glam to a neat page.

       

      SOURCES: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper. Patterned paper: Reminisce. Stickers: Making Memories (black block letters), My Little Shoebox (orange block letters), Reminisce ("the life cycle," pumpkin, journaling blocks, scalloped trim). Gems: Prima Marketing, Inc.

    • Trick-or-Treat Halloween Scrapbook Page

      Design by Jamie Waters

      Halloween supplies come in an array of spooky and cute designs, so you can choose theme accents to match your style. Jamie hand-cut around an image on patterned paper to make the spiderwebs that spookily hang over the photos. Include multiple letter-sticker styles to amp up the visuals and make use of random letters from your stash. Stagger title words so you leave room for a spooky embellishment.

       

      SOURCES: Patterned paper: KI Memories (stripe, orange, white), Making Memories (ivory). Laser-cut paper: Little Yellow Bicycle. Stickers, chipboard: KI Memories. Photo corners: Kolo. Punches: Fiskars.

    • Distressed Halloween Scrapbook Page

      Design by Lisa Storms

      Your creative Halloween decor deserves an equally creative scrapbook page. Snap pics of your spooky decorations and preserve the memories in a two-page scrapbook layout. Swap out letters in the title for embellishments, like replacing an "o" with punched eyeballs or a rub-on monster. After printing your journaling in strips, chalk the edges and layer them over a pair of eyeballs to make a mummy. To add a little atmosphere, use quick-drying ink, such as StazOn by Tsukineko, to distress the edges of your photos for a spooky feeling. If you're digitally inclined, run a vignette action before printing.

Punches: Fiskars.

    • Creepy Card Charms

      Design by Heidi Swapp

      Make your own gorgeously ghoulish accessories by turning digital designs into jewelry. Use a pendant kit or cover a bezel with dimensional adhesive and patterned paper. If you're giving jewelry as a gift, attach it to a card backing decorated with coordinating scrapbook supplies.

    • Distressed Halloween Scrapbook Page

      Design by Carole Stirrat

      Choose a color scheme and accents to complement a Halloween costume, as Carole did on this storybook pirate page. Carole used multiples of a skull die-cut image to create a border. For a little extra pop, raise one of the die cuts on foam adhesive and embellish it with a not-so-scary flower. Add a rub-on spiderweb to spook up your embellishments. Channel your inner novelist and start your journaling with a large ornate letter, like the "P" on this page.

Chipboard accents: Making Memories. Die cuts: Sizzix. Gems: Zva Creative. Ink: Stampin' Up!. Pen: American Crafts.

    • Layered Patterns Halloween Scrapbook Page

      Design by Donna Januzzi

      Kids say the darnedest things. Make your child's words the star of the layout by using them as a title. Contrasting patterned paper layered behind a picture puts your dressed-up child center stage. Add a small brad at the top of a tilted picture for a pinned-on look.

       

      SOURCES: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper. Patterned paper, stickers: American Crafts. Buttons: BasicGrey. Punches: Fiskars (stars), Martha Stewart Crafts (photo corner).

      Divided Halloween Scrapbook Page

      Design by Donna Januzzi

      Have a frightening number of photos but not a lot of time? Try using a divided page protector for one side of a two-page layout. It's a great compromise between scrapbooking and getting photos in albums. If your photos don't fit perfectly in the spaces of the page protector, mat them on coordinating squares of scrap paper.

      Boo-tiful Halloween Banner

      Design by Hilary Kanwischer

      Use the pages of a pennant-shape chipboard album to string together a homespun banner. Spiderwebs and clay spiders add a spooky element, while buttons and bows insert a shot of color. Age tags by soaking them in walnut ink, and add shine to letters with crystal lacquer. To combat the forces of gravity, use hot glue when attaching heavier items to a hanging banner.

      Design by Lisa Storms

      Adhere one end of the spiral to the bottom half of the card interior, then add adhesive to the top center of the card and attach the other end of the spiral. Close the card to adhere, then add shapes along the spiral.

      Pop-Up Halloween Card: Step 3

      Design by Lisa Storms

      Be sure your pop-up shapes only have adhesive where attached to the spiral. Lisa first adhered the bat stickers to black paper, then cut them out so the backs were no longer sticky. Adhere a message or accent over the end of a pop-up spiral for a polished look.
