Happy Halloween!

Hello friends!

I want to share with you today this Halloween paper bag album I created with Cosmo Cricket's Matilda Halloween paper line.

This album was so much fun to make! It's the bulkiest book I've ever made.



The ribbon is also by Cosmo Cricket.



I love creating for Halloween because you can do fun and unusual combinations like a clock face on a flower!



I love the little envelope I used on this page. It is by Maya Road and they come in sets with different shapes and sizes.



I added black crepe paper and glitter to this page.




I love this paper! The striped witches legs are too funny!







Every time I started a page, I first distresed the edges and inked them with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.





The cute vintage images used throughout this book are by Crafty Secrets.




I hope you have enjoyed taking a look at my book! I hope you try one too!

Happy Halloween, Lindsey

I love crafty secrets. I believe this is the company that their headquarters is located very close to my home...
I'd love to work with their product for some future tags.

Your Halloween book is so adorable! I would love to learn how to make something similar so it looks like a photo album perhaps a page for each holiday and maybe bdays, etc. How did you make it? Bonnie :)

I really see no better choice, but to say yes, I agree. Let's all jump on the bandwagon.
I don't I'll be posting much more here for a while. But then again, I have no idea when I would want to be random again.
How do I promote my website?
This page rocks, keep up the good work.
