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!
Last year my daughter had to work on Halloween. She decided to make the most of it by dressing up. She pulled out one of her dance dresses, put on some spooky jewelry, and did her makeup up to look like a ghostly lady from a haunted house.
I love these pictures of her and needed some spooky paper to scrapbook them. The Carta Bella Haunted collection was perfect! Love the elegant feel of the patterns and colors of this collection!
First, I splattered the background with some gray Heidi Swapp Color Shine mist in the color called “Tinsel.” I love how it looks like stars in the night sky on this black felt cardstock.
The circle bat paper behind the photos kind of remind me of a big giant moon on Halloween night, don’t you think?
I clustered together a few stickers to the left of the photos here.
For the title I used two die sets, the “Scary Halloween Die Set” and the “Spooky Bat Die Set.” I double cut each word so that I could add a shadow behind them and make them stand out a bit more.
I wrapped the photo on the right with lots of white crochet twine … kind of looks like a spider web, right?! Love it!
Are you doing any scrapping this weekend? Why not catch up on a few Halloween memories?
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.
WENDY ANTENUCCI’S PAGE
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.
A BOY AND HIS GUITAR
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!
