Halloween Fun and a Give-Away!

Good Monday morning! I had the privilige this last week to work on some spooky projects for A Scrappy Design. Heather sent me some wonderful things from her shop, and I was able to make two layouts and a mini-album.

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.



I bet your Halloween photos would look amazing in this little album. Would you like to find out first hand? I would love to send this album to you, for you to fill with happy, haunted, Halloween memories. To win... 1) Make sure you are following this blog. 2) Leave a comment here with what you or your kids are going to be for Halloween. 3) For an extra entry, blog about this give-away on your blog and leave a comment with a link. Winner will be chosen at random on November 1st.

And then head over to A Scrappy Design for an awesome sale on Halloween items!

Thanks for looking and good luck! Tessa

  5. All your creations are super duper!!! That mini album is gorgeous - I can't believe you are giving it away! I don't have any children nor do I dress up (unless you count a witches hat for handing out candy). Our dog, though, will be a bumble bee :)
