This is Halloween by Jen Carlson

Although I love the fall feels and seasonal changes that come along with Halloween, I’m not a huge fan of dressing up.  I dread it in fact.  So you’re probably not going to see me scrapbooking a bunch of photos of me at a costume party or dressed up.  I still love to document the other festivities that come with the day and last year I celebrated by going to a themed yoga class!

Even though the Halloween Mini Kit comes with 4x4 cards, you have the option to cut them down to 3x4 like I did for this pocket page layout.  I also used the digital version of several of the cards which can be attained as a subscriber. 

The stickers that come along with the Halloween mini kit are aDORable!  And, you get two sheets of them!  I used the fangs mini sticker to adorn the “Not your basic witch” card and love the simplicity of it.  Don’t mess with cute!

I’m a frequent user of the 2x3 white journaling block stapled over a busy patterned card.  This time, I decided to try and pick up a tone from the card in photoshop and color my journaling background with it, text in white.  Sometimes it’s that little change that can make a layout pop!

Again, not wanting to mess with cute, I simply added the orange Treats/Tricks sticker to the Pumpkin Everything card.  This small dab of orange balanced the coloring on my spread and gave it a bit more of the festive holiday feel.

The kitty card is a digital version.  I shrunk the image down and formatted it to a 3x4 white card.  But even if you cut the 4x4 down, it’d be just as fantastic!  Another option would be to stretch out the card’s use by circle punching the cats and using them on multiple layouts.

I used the orange “magic” tab sticker on my ghost candy photo.  I love how the tabs have a dotted line showing exactly where to fold it over your card.  A couple mini staples and it’s the perfect accent!

Hope this layout gets you in the spirit for Halloween!!  Fall is just around the corner, I can feel it!  And if you’re a procrastinator like me, you still have last year’s Halloween photos to scrap so this is the perfect time to pick up the mini kit!  Thanks for stopping by to take a peek at my layout!
