I’m still sharing the Halloween pages I’ve been creating with the Noel Mignon October Falloween kits, and today I have another one!
When my daughter was asking her date to the Halloween dance last year, we were trying to come up with a unique way to ask him. I was wandering the aisles of JoAnn and saw that they were having a clearance sale on this large fuzzy yarn … So guess what we did?!
We bought a plastic pumpkin, filled it with candy, with the question and her name inside, wrapped the pumpkin in a piece of clearance fleece … and then wrapped that baby up to create a huge Halloween yarn ball! It was crazy! and H-E-A-V-Y!!! I’m sure his family gasped and rolled their eyes when they found it on their porch. *giggle* We even tucked in a few Halloween toys here-and-there as we were wrapping the yarn ball to make it extra spooky!
For this page, I used a kraft cardstock background as my base … and then pulled the Carta Bella Haunted papers from the Noel Mignon Falloween Classic kit to work with. I also added in a bit of the mini green polka dot paper by Bella Blvd.
At the top of the page I clustered together three flair buttons.
On this side of the page I used a couple of bat die cuts (from the Daily Diary kit). One of them is saying “Boo!” courtesy of the painted wood veneer sticker by American Crafts (from the Classic Kit).
I used a journal card from the Daily Diary kit to add the details of this story to the page, and then accented them with the skeleton die cuts (also from the Daily Diary kit). I love Mr. and Mrs. skeleton! They are perfect on this page about a dance!
I accented the die cuts with the puffy AC sticker, AC wood buttons, and the Maya Road felt flower. A creepy puffy sticker spider is crawling on top of the Mrs. Skeleton die cut! Eek!
Another puffy spider sticker is crawling around on the “Got Candy?” die cut at the bottom of the page. This die cut was originally shaped as a speech bubble … I just trimmed off the little “tail” and made it into an oval-ish shape.
It’s a fun memory scrapped with some super-fun spooky supplies. I love my Noel Mignon kits so much!
Have a great weekend!
Waiting for the tooth fairy to come is almost like waiting for Christmas morning …the magic or anticipating a fairy visiting your room feels the air and makes it almost impossible to fall asleep!
Those teeny, tiny teeth are so easily lost underneath a pillow … why not create a keepsake box to place on your child’s nightstand instead?
The top of this box as an easel that flips up, displaying a tooth chart. The sparkly brads keeps the easel in place, but the panel can also fold flat for storage.
Below the chart is a drawer, … the perfect spot to place the loose tooth and maybe even a note for the tooth fairy, thanking her for her hard work. The sparkly brad is not only a fun decorative touch, but serves as the drawer pull.
After the tooth fairy comes for her visit, she can leave payment inside the drawer.
Place the Tooth Fairy box inside a coordinating storage box to keep it protected until the next time you are ready to use it!
This week on the Noel Mignon blog, we are scrapping with leaves!
Last year when my daughter went to her school’s Halloween dance, she and her date dressed up as Indiana Jones and Marion. To make a long story short, I didn’t end up with any photos of her and her date, but I *AM* grateful to have these pictures of my daughter in her costume.
I was grateful for the fall papers included with the “Falloween” kit this month because they had touches of red … the color of my daughter’s “Marion” outfit. They worked out perfectly for this page!
I used the fall leaf doily included with the kit as part of my background, layered on top of the golden yellow leaf paper.
I love that the Thicker letter stickers in this kit look like wood … I added punched leaves to the letters at the beginning of each word to give them a woodland feel.
I created a few embellishment clusters around the page, using the flowers, rubber charms, and a cut out pumpkin from one of the journaling cards … all from the Falloween Daily Diary kit. The wood veneers are from the Falloween Classic kit.
Another cluster adorns the journaling, with more punched leaves. So cute!
Don’t feel like you have to stick with the traditional orange and black for all of your Halloween pages … your photos might look better with a different color scheme! Give it a try!
Today I have a two-page layout to share with you using the Echo Park Paper Halloween collection.
This page came together really fast with the help of a Scrapbook Generation sketch. I love that these sketches give you measurements for cutting. They make quick work of memory keeping and I love turning to them when I’m feeling burned out for ideas.
These pictures do not do these cute papers justice. They each have a bit of thermography on them, making them shiny in spots … almost like parts of the patterned have been embossed with clear embossing powder. They really are so darling in person!
I cut out several of the creatures from the journal cards papers to use as accents on this page. They have such a cute-friendly feel about them!
I stitched one of the shapes on at the top of the page, and then added a sticker to the center of this knotted ribbon.
I added some Frankenstein-green buttons tied with white twine as a finishing touch.
Thanks for stopping by today!
