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!

Noel Mignon: Halloween Dance


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!

Noel Mignon: A Boy and His Guitar


If you’re feeling in a rut with your regular scrappy routine, try taking a detour and scraplifting a design by one of your favorite designers.

This week on the Noel Mignon blog, our challenge was to scraplift a project by a fellow Noel Mignon fan. I chose to scraplift my fellow design team member, Wendy Antenucci. Here is her project that I chose to use as my inspiration.



I loved the title, the way she clustered the photos together in a row, and all of the fun bits-and-pieces tucked in behind the photos. I kept these things in mind as I created my own page.


I chose to place my photos together on one row, like Wendy’s photos, overlapping them slightly.


Next, I layered all kinds of patterns of paper and washi tape behind my photos; I even took a cue from Wendy and placed a chipboard frame peeking out from behind.


Below the photos, I created my title. I wanted to create a large title like Wendy’s. The large woodgrain letters from the Noel Mignon Oct. 2016 Falloween Kit were the perfect thing!  I combined them with two sets of brown letter stickers, and even “copied” Wendy’s “Boy’s Rule” title a bit by adding in a subtitle stating #owenrules.


I handwrote my journaling below the title, cascading down towards the bottom of the page where I placed a striped strip of patterned paper along with a few phrase stickers and the wood buttons.


I added a few heart stickers to accent the journaling.


I had so much fun with this one! A BIG THANK YOU to Wendy for inspiring me!

See you again soon!

In other crafty news, I have been playing with my Noel Mignon October “Falloween” kits and have my first page to share with you!

I busted out this kit this past weekend and have already created 7 layouts with it! I’m loving all the fun papers!

In fact, I have been playing with this kit so much, I haven’t even got out the boxes of Halloween decorations yet. GASP!!! What is WRONG with me?!! I better get crackin’ on that TODAY!!!

If you missed out on picking this one up for yourself, the “Falloween” Daily Diary kit is still available HERE, or you can pick up just the papers HERE.


It’s my job to come up with the challenges each week for the Noel Mignon Design Team and this week we are working on the “Pumpkin Pie Challenge.” For this challenge, we were to use the color orange AND a triangle, pie, or wedge shape in our design.

Here is what I came up with!


I fun with the title on this one … adding the little ghost sticker to the letter “O” of the word “ghosts.” Isn’t he cute? I also added a dangling spider die cut to the word “ghouls.”

The title was getting lost on the black patterned paper, so I placed a piece of vellum behind it, cut into a banner shape.


I pulled out my triangle punch and the 6×6 patterned papers from the Falloween Daily Diary kit to create the triangle shapes to the left of my photos.

I adore the wood buttons with the enamel centers … they kind of remind me of creepy eyballs here.


Be sure to check out the Noel Mignon blog throughout the month to see what the other members of the design team are creating with the Falloween Kit.

See you again soon!
