Trick or Treat! Halloween Mini Album

Ok, I am finally posting the Halloween mini book/mini album I did last year. It's a 6x6 mini, with black mat board pages.


I used Tim Holtz' trinket pin and Philosophy tag along with a boatload of ribbon and a couple of cute Pumpkin bells.

Back Cover

Recognize the Fiskars' Threading Water punch? I love it.

Inside Pages

Each pocket holds 3 tags with photos on both sides. The last tag on the right side has several bats from the Martha Stewart punch.

Last pocket page. Used American Crafts vinyl thickers on both for titles. It's kinda hard to see the "treat" on the right page. They didn't stick too well so I had to reglue. I like the chipboard and Puffy alphas from AC a lot better than the vinyl.

This page is kinda busy. I designed and created this book before I gathered the photos. I'm not going to retrofit design any more. It really shows it on this spread.

It's a bit hard to see, but I used the MM foiling paper here. I love that paper. I don't know why it isn't more popular. So versatile. I also used the Little Yellow Bicycle felt borders stickers. I also had to add some adhesive to these, they just kept lifting up. I used it here to hide a beat-up plastic lawn chair at the pumpkin patch.

Added the LYB epoxy "Spooky" sticker. So cool. The LYB pumpkin stickers are so cute, too!

The centers of the black chipboard flowers are the Doodlebug Jewels in jet. Those are some of my favorite bling. Reminds me of black Tahitian pearls!!

I love the simplicity of this spread. The Bo Bunny paper had this wavy text so I tore it following the wave.

This last page, I used the MM's foiling again and the Glitter Check. On every other square, there was a circle-punched, ink-edged and pop-dotted graphic (if those aren't true verbs, they are now! lol!)
