halloween layout: 2013 photos

Halloween Layout

Here's a Halloween layout if you need some inspiration for your favorite spooky photos from yesterday.  These photos are of my sweet four year old daughter who loves all things pink, princess, and fairy.  She knew exactly what she wanted to be this year and had been anticipating the big day for a while.  She was so ready to go trick-or-treating!


I used coordinating textured cardstock from the Bewitched collection to die cut some letters and shapes.  I love that each collection always comes with matching cardstock--no need to search high and low for the perfect color!  My title doubles as my journaling for this page, and it acts as a design element as well.


I used the Lifestyle Crafts Spider Shape Die and the Bat and Moon Punch Die to cut some accents for my page.  The Bat and Moon Punch Die includes a single set of the dies as well so you don't have to cut multiple shapes if you don't need them.  I adhered them with foam squares and gently bent the edges for added dimension.


I also added some subtle white stitching to the white backgrounds using my Sew Easy tool and floss.  Adding tone-on-tone layers creates interest and depth without detracting from the most important elements on your project.

I hope these ideas have inspired your Halloween memory keeping.
