I decided to use the Memento inks Imagine Crafts sent to me along with a couple of my favorite Echo Park stamp sets to create a Halloween page today.

HELLO CANDY

The minute my kids get home from trick-or-treating, they sit down to trade each other for their favorite treats and count up their loot. The Echo Park Paper Halloween collection was perfect for this one, with it’s bright colors and spooky critters!

For the title, I used the “hello” word from the Sentiments Stamp along with the adorable Logan Alphabet stamp set. The “hello” is stamped in Memento Espresso Truffle ink and the word “candy” is stamped in Memento Pear Tart ink.

The spiderweb and friendly spider from the Spiderweb & Spider Die set are the perfect accents! The “October 31st” banner was handcut from the 3×4 Journaling Cards paper.

I used the Memento Espresso Truffle ink to ink the edges of all of my page elements, including the die cut Jolly Jack-O-Lantern pumpkins at the bottom of the page.

To bring the spider die cuts to life, I added a white crochet string “web” to each one, stringing it over the top of the page, so that the spiders appear to be dangling there.

I also added mini black pearl stickers to give them eedy-beedy, shiny eyes.

I wish you could get a real feel for the AWESOME Black foil dot paper I used for the background. It is the perfect base for this spooky-feeling page.

  2. I do have a Halloween album that I add pages too every year. Our tradition is to decorate with a giant spiderweb across our front porch with spiders on it. And go to the pumpkin patch for hayrides, apple picking, and getting our pumpkins. Then trick or treating on Halloween night. Loved your page with all the layers, details, patterns, and cute spiders. Just great.

  3. Great page! I hardly ever create Halloween pages anymore, since my kids are now teenagers and I can’t get any good pics of them trick-or-treating anymore. Usually the pics I do get make it into a Project Life-style pocket page, though, so that counts, right? 😉
    Black foil-dot paper, huh? Sounds yummy! Can’t tell in the pic, but I’m sure it’s a great effect IRL.

  4. I use your layouts as my inspiration for all my scrapbooking pages. With three grandkids I am always busy scrapping. Now my husband and grown children want a scrapbook of their own as well.
    Keep the lovely layouts coming!!!

  7. It’s been a long time since my kids were collecting candy on Halloween. (they’re in their 50s and I won’t mention my age). For many years I would fix a big dinner (chili, tamales, all the fixings, pumpkin pie) and we’d sit outside with the firepit and hand out candy. Either the number of kids
    in the neighborhood have decreased or kids aren’t coming out so I’ve discontinued that tradition.
    I miss seeing the few kids that did come around but the times change. I’ve never scrapbooked
    any of those nights – wish I had because some of the people who came to eat are no longer with us.
    thanks for sharing your wonderful layout.
