First, I made a layout using the spider die-cuts (I added the googly eyes), a journaling card, and an oh-so-cute spider button. I used the black paper ribbon available in my Etsy shop to create a flower, then used the spider button as the center.
My second layout is of my son, Carson, last Halloween. He loved the idea of being the hulk and kept practicing his "Hulk face" for weeks before the big day. I used a journaling spot and a saying. I sprayed glimmer mist in two shades of green over the pieces, then crumpled them up. I unfolded them, let them dry, then used a cream metallic rub-on in green to highlight the creases. I also got to play with a new product that I've never used before - Mudd Puddles. It's a bumpy substance mixed with glue that you apply to your projects with a puddy knife. I used it around the corners of my photos for a bumpy, creepy, Halloween look.
My third project was a mini album using Basic Grey's Eerie line. I love mini albums with pages of different sizes, and Heather's journaling cards were perfect as little pages in between my chipboard pages. I added orange lace trim, pom pom trim in purple, green, and black, and little orange flowers with black jewel centers.
