Midnight Haunting Halloween Pages

This week is Thanksgiving in the United States and before we head into Christmas, I thought I would share a couple of Halloween pages I created with the Pebbles Inc. Midnight Haunting collection.

SPOOKY

I was inspired to use a gray spiderweb on the background of this page by another Halloween page I saw this year … I want to say it was a page created by Kim Watson (LOVE her work!), but I’m not 100% sure. … Anyway, I just loved the softer look of the gray against the lighter background and decided I wanted to do that on a page, too!

The base of this page is a cream grid paper I had in my stash by BasicGrey. I then used the Midnight Haunting 6×6 paper pad, cardstock stickers, die cuts, and puffy stickers to fill in the spaces around my photos.

I love the florals in this collection … okay, okay … I love florals period. But how cute are these flowers in their fall colors with their black leaves?!

I cut the title using my Silhouette Cameo 3 machine using a cut file by Jamie Koay from the Silhouette Design Store (unfortunately, I could not locate the cut file number for this one … I’m so sorry! I’ll come back and edit this post if I ever figure it out.)

I gave my spider die cut one creepy eye ball from the Midnight Haunting puffy stickers. I giggle every time I look at that one-eyed spider … I pretty much love him!

The headstone die cuts look so cute clustered together to the right of the title. I like how the skeleton is in “pieces” below the appropriate caption and that the arrow of the other headstone points your eye to the year/date.

HALLOWEEN

Here is the second page I created with the darling Midnight Haunting collection! For this one I began with a Kraft cardstock base … Kraft always works so well for Fall and Halloween layouts!

My pen was acting funny while I was journaling … thus, the darker and lighter looking words … but it’s okay, I will just roll with it!

The scariest part of creating a page for me (besides hand-journaling and unpredictable pens!) is at the end of designing when I decide to add a bit of ink to a layout. (I really don’t know why I don’t just begin a page with misting … I always seem to leave it to the end!) On this day, an ink droplet landed on the cat die cut where I didn’t want it to and ended up making it look “dirty.” To try and camouflage the unplanned ink spot, I darkened the edges of the moon/cat die cut and created a midnight “sky” around it with Pebbles chalks.

I can’t decide if I like it or not? But for now I will keep it that way. The great thing about chalks is that if you change your mind, you can always go back and erase it away.

I used my Silhouette Cameo 3 machine to die cut the “Halloween” title and black leaf shape (die cut information is listed at the bottom of this post). I added a small strip of pinked black cardstock below the pumpkins to balance out the other two die cut cardstock pieces on this page.

I almost always mat the background to my layouts, but when that seems like a little much, I will do what I did here and use a black journaling pen to outline the edge … or add a line of machine stitching.

Spellbinders: Halloween Shaker Cupcake Toppers

Yum, yum … give me some! Are you going to a Halloween party this year? Maybe you’re in charge of bringing cupcakes to the office party, or your child’s class party? I always love a festive cupcake (Mmmmm!) … especially when it comes dressed for the occasion!

Today I have a fun twist on the classic cupcake topper … Shaker Cupcake Toppers!

Spellbinders and Scrapbook.com were kind enough to send me a Platinum 6 die cut machine and a couple of their die sets to play with! Last week, I shared a quick and easy gift idea using the Textured Flowers die.

Today, I am playing with the Witch on Broom dies!

When I saw that witch, I knew right away that I wanted her to be flying across a spooky moon … and then I saw the bats! What if I create a moon shaker with the bats inside?!!! YES!!!! … So that is exactly what I did.

I added them to the top of decorative straws in Halloween colors, and then added ribbons and square buttons tied with black twine. The witch, double-cut and layered in orange foil and black cardstock, floats across the front of the moon shaker with the help of a few foam dots.

I created some cupcake wrappers with my Silhouette Cameo 3 machine to coordinate. So cute!

Process Video: All Hallow’s Eve

Today I’m back with another Layout Process Video featuring the BOOtiful Night collection by American Crafts. Last week I shared how I used the 6×6 paper pad in quadrants to create a scrapbook page … today, I’m using the 6×6 paper pad to piece together longer strips across the width of the page.

American Crafts: BOOtiful Night Card Trio

Today I have a trio of Halloween cards to share with you using the American Crafts BOOtiful Night collection.

American-Crafts-Bootiful-Night-Cards-Jana-Eubank-1-600

This was such a fun set to put together! First, I began by cutting three card bases from the 12×12 Black Textured Cardstock. I then chose which die cuts I wanted to feature on each card and then selected 6×6 paper to go with each one.

I thought the spooky night scene paper would be perfect to go behind the Haunted House die cut! I added some black pearls a Halloween wood button tied with twine, and two puffy sticker jack-o-lanterns sitting near the porch … just waiting to greet the trick-or-treaters!

How CUTE are the ghosts in this collection?! I don’t think I would run away from these two if I came across them … they are too friendly and sweet to bo scary!

I would call the skulls in this collection sweet-and-spooky … their expression has a goofy edge to it, don’t you think? I added a silver spiderweb doily and some candy stickers to accent this silly guy.

I can’t wait to send these off to some friends!
