Simple Stories: Happy Halloween

Trick or treat, she’s so sweet! The new Simple Stories Happy Haunting collection was perfect for scrapbooking these two cute friends who decided to put together their own gypsy costumes for Halloween one year. It was fun to hear them giggle and squeal as they ran back and forth to each other’s houses digging through their skirts, scarves, and their mom’s jewelry and makeup putting together the perfect gypsy ensemble.

Do you sometimes feel like that when you’re scrapbooking? Like you have to dig and dig to find just the right pieces for your project? Stop digging and grab yourself a collection kit by Simple Stories. The simple, yet brilliant, patterns make it a snap to document your memories!

Time and time again I reach for the Snap Basics Paper Pack for my backgrounds. Not only do I love a neutral, clean background, but I adore the built-in journaling lines! Ha!

I have been enjoying adding torn bits to my pages lately. This technique is a simple way to add texture to a design. Here I tore a strip of the Fright Night paper to go across the top of my page. There was one spot where the tear curved upwards. Instead of letting it bother me, I ran with it and added a few tab stickers from the Combo Sticker Sheet to fill it in. What a fun detail!

I couldn’t WAIT to try out the 6×6 Stencil from this collection. The bats in flight were just calling my name. I used a dauber and a black ink pad to create the pattern on the background and then splattered some mist over the top.

Next, I used the chipboard phrase for my title (SWOON!) and then cut out a few of the larger designs from the 4×4 Elements paper decorate the space below. These larger elements are anchored on the chipboard banner and then accented with a pumpkin and floral cluster sticker (Combo Sticker Sheet).

One of my favorite things about this collection is the soft touches of pink. I love how the shades of pink pick up the girls’ youthful skin. The pink also adds a feminine, flirty touch!
