My favorite thing about Halloween is having all of the trick-or-treaters come to the door and seeing their cute costumes. The Hocus Pocus collection by Echo Park Paper has it’s own cute set of trick-or-treaters and I couldn’t wait to feature them on this set of Halloween cards!
I love how this first trick-or-treater has removed his skeleton mask … isn’t that what always happens on Halloween night? As you go about your route, it’s a bit hard to see where you are going, so you end up taking off the mask. Haha! He also reminds me a bit of my teen son … I think this card would be perfect for him!
This next card looks like we have walked right into a Halloween Costume party. The skeleton is showing off his best dance moves to his friend, the ghost, with a spider dangling overhead.
This mummy isn’t going to let Mr. Skeleton have all the fun! He has his own set of dance moves!
At the bottom of this card, I’ve added a die cut witch hat and boots from the Hocus Pocus die set
. I had fun adding dimensional details, like the jewel on the hat and the laces for the boots.
What are your party plans this Halloween? Why not use a trio of trick-or-treater cards to invite your friends over for a celebration?
Hello!I’m back with another papercrafting project for your home! This time, we are looking forward to Halloween … my favorite!
Today I am working with the brand new Bewitched collection by Echo Park Paper
. This collection features the prettiest, sweetest witch you have ever seen and I couldn’t wait to feature her in my design!
You have probably seen the wood block decor that looks like the blocks are mounted on a candlestick with a knob adorning the top … well, I came across a cut file by MyScrapChick.com
that mimics that look except every piece is made out of paper instead of wood! I couldn’t wait to give it a try!
The smaller block features the witch’s best friend, a black cat! I own a black cat myself, and so I love to add black cats in my Halloween decor as much as possible! This sweet little guy is peeking out of from a friendly Jack-O-Lantern sitting next to the jar of candy. I used flower stickers and a shiny, black satin ribbon on both blocks, tying them together visually. The sides of both blocks are also both decorated with panels of Witch Hats paper
Do you have a favorite Halloween icon you like to add to your decor? For me, it is witches, black cats, and jack-o-lanterns … and I was so happy to be able to include all three on this project!
See you again soon!
Fall paper collections always put me in the mood for homebaked treats and connecting with neighbors. Today I am up on the Echo Park Paper blog with an apple barrel basket, created with the new Celebrate Autumn collection
, that would be perfect for taking to a dear friend. Inside I have tucked a couple of dishtowels, a set of ceramic measuring spoons, a paper acorn box filled with treats, and a jar of honey.
I painted the brown cardstock flower centers with THIS gold glitter water brush pen by Art-C
to make them shimmer and sparkle. (I couldn’t quite capture these on camera … I sooo wish you could see them in person! They are AWESOME!)
A peek inside the basket beckons the recipient to investigate!
Inside they will find the cutest acorn-shaped box filled with chocolates! (If you’d like to make your own acorn shaped box you can find the file HERE
. It is from the Acorn Autumn SVG Set by SVGCuts.com
A coordinating card is the perfect place to write a greeting! Be sure to tell your loved one how thankful you are for them in your life!
Can you think of someone in your life who deserves to know how grateful you are for all that they do for you? They would love this basket of goodies!

This is about the time during Summer that I feel it slipping between my fingers. There’s a sudden panic to fit in one more road trip, or to make sure we have checked off all of our summer bucket list items as we start making the shift to thinking about Back to School.
The great thing is that Summer can last all year long in the scrapbook world! Just pull out some bright papers and spend some time working on a summer memory or two.
Today I am sharing a page using the Carta Bella Paper Beach Day collection with a few fish making an appearance from the Echo Park Paper Under the Sea collection. I’ve mixed these items together with a few sticker sets that have been hanging around in my stash.
My fish are flying out of the ocean waves with the help of a few yellow toothpicks that I grabbed from my kitchen.
I created a little scene on this circle punched from the Cool Cruising paper using the Beach Day Element Stickers, a puffy sun sticker by Mambi, and a dimensional umbrella sticker from an older Recollections sticker sheet.
The “F-U-N” pennant stickers were also from the Recollections sticker sheet and look so cute here with the blue Momenta letter stickers. (It’s not often you find bright blue letter stickers … they are usually aqua or teal … so I snag this color up whenever I see it somewhere!)
More stickers and a punched photograph adorn the circular elements at the bottom of the page.
I love printing my photos in smaller sizes so I have room to play with design elements on a page, and this one was a lot of fun to do!
Thanks so much for coming by!
