Old & New: Halloween Parade


Last year while walking in the school’s Halloween parade, my daughter was so nervous about “holding up the line” that she barely paused long enough to wave to me and her dad watching her. The result was ONE blurry photo of her Halloween parade. LOL! (Don’t worry, I’ve coached her that it is “okay” to pause long enough to allow me to get a photo this year. Crossing my fingers she takes my advice this time!)



I was at the American Crafts Warehouse sale here in Utah recently and picked up some of this year’s Halloween stickers and die cuts.

I used various scraps of patterned papers from my stash to build the background following the colors of the newer embellishments.


I strung the banner pieces across the top of the layout, and then accented the top right corner of the photo with this ribbon sticker. I matted it with a couple more layers of cardstock to help it stand out and give it more presence against all of the patterned papers underneath it.


I used a pocket card for my journal block and then created a little scene on the bottom of it using the stickers. I popped a few of the stickers up using foam squares for a bit more dimension.


I love the “Halloween” letters that were included in the die cut pack. I combined them together with a die cut word to create my title.


A few buttons tied with white twine finishes off this happy and bright Halloween page.

Hope to see you again soon!

FREE Idea Book & Simple Gifts


Have you seen that there is a new issue out of the FREE idea books by Echo Park Paper? I’m so excited because one of my projects is featured on the cover. Eeek!

CLICK HERE to check it out by downloading  it for free. There are so many cute ideas in this booklet created by my fellow design team members. You will find inspiration for Halloween, Thanksgiving, Fall, and even Christmas! It’s definitely worth a minute of your time!


What they didn’t have room to show you in the magazine is that this Christmas Mailbox, created with the Carta Bella Christmas Delivery paper (one of my VERY FAVORITE holiday lines this year), actually opens up and holds several mini presents inside. Wouldn’t this make a fun gift to give to that someone special this holiday?!


I actually have two more projects featured in the idea book, too. I hope you’ll take a minute to check them out and let me know what you think!😀


On the same gift-giving note … I created some simple Halloween gifts for some neighbor gals I visit each month and thought I would share those with you today.

Sometimes a small, sweet gift is all someone needs to brighten their day!

I ran across these adorable fuzzy, Halloween socks in the Target Dollar Spot. I cut out a cute cube box … this one is from the Concave Cubes by Lettering Delights … to put them in, and then added a simple tag.


These were premade tags (oldies by David Tutera that I purchased at JoAnn’s years ago) and came pre-embossed along the bottom. The third one was plain, but I made it match the others by embossing the bottom with the Cuttlebug Halloween Borders set.

I added the ghost and “Boo” die cuts using the Carta Bella Boo Ghost Die Set. I used the luxurious Ultra White and Ebony Black felt designer cardstocks … LOVE the texture of these cardstocks!


That cute Halloween Pumpkins paper is from the Echo Park Paper Halloween collection. The black dots have a thermography on top of them which give it a little shimmer when you turn the paper side-to-side. Love that!


I hope my neighbor friends enjoy their simple, little gifts and know that I am thinking of them this Halloween season!

Thanks for coming by!

Noel Mignon: Halloween


I really love it when a Halloween collection sprinkles in the color blue. It’s a unique twist to the orange and black and makes a fun accent color.


I must have done something right in raising my kids, because they love Halloween just as much as I do! My daughter even used some of her own money last year to pick up this fun, Halloween tutu to wear to school during the month of October.

To scrapbook this memory, I pulled out my October 2016 Falloween Classic and Daily Diary kits by NoelMignon.com.


I used a sheet of white cardstock as the base to my page to keep it nice and bright. I machine -stitched around the edges to give it a little definition.

My photo is matted on a couple of scraps from my stash (b/w stripe by Teresa Collins, orange glitter by DCWV). I placed it on a larger mat of black and white polka dot paper that came with the Falloween Classic kit.

At the top of the photo I created a cute little cluster of embellishments … a Bella Blvd cute clip, washi tape circle sticker, phrase sticker, and a puffy “31” sticker.


To the left of the photo I stacked a bunch of washi tape strips from the Bella Blvd. washi tape booklet included with the Falloween Daily Diary kit.

I cut the blue title and circles from cardstock scraps using my Silhouette Cameo machien. I cut the title twice so that I could trim out the letters and pop up every other one.

I placed the painted wood veneer cat head sticker on top of the letter “o” to make it more fun!


The bats and “trick or treat” circle were stamped using the Lawn Fawn stamp included with the Falloween kit. I was able to color the bats blue to match the other accents on my page.

I pulled the blue number thickers from my stash, mounting them on white cardstock to help them stand out against that polka dot paper.


Isn’t that big orange bow so delicious?! I love how Noel includes delicious ribbons in the kit once-in-awhile and it really makes a statement on this page! I accented the center of the knotted ribbon with a skelly die cut (Falloween Daily Diary kit) mounted on a punched hexagon, that was matted again on white cardstock.


This page was so much fun to put together! I love all of the crazy patterns playing off one another! By keeping things on a white background and adhering the other page elements to solid cardstock, you are still able to navigate around the page and take in the photo and information.

If you don’t have washi strips … this could be really fun to re-create with various patterned paper scraps. Give it a try!

See you again soon!

Got Candy? Scrapbook Page


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!
