Halloween Scrapping

First things first, Stampin' Up! have announced two exciting new promotions for November. A really exciting ink pad promotion when you place an order for £325 (individual, party or group orders qualify) you will receive a colour family of ink pads for free (10 colours from with the Subtles, Regals or Brights). There is also another great promotion on the Ornament Keepsakes bundle. Buy the stamp set bundle and receive the matching Paper-Piecing Pack for free!! Wow, what a month to place an order or host a party with me. So many fab freebies!! To find out more please click on my promotions tab above.
Now, before you pack away all those Halloween crafty supplies for another year I wanted to share a few more projects you can use them for. I'm sure we all have a stack of pictures from Halloween so why not use your stamps and papers for a bit of seasonal scrapbooking.
These are the two pages we created at this months Stampin' Scrapping class. I had to dress Summer up and stage these photos as my class was on Monday, two days before Halloween. But with a headband and some orange cushions the pictures had a very Halloween-y feel.
This first page has an Elegant Eggplant base and uses the Howlstooth and Scaringbone papers to embellish the photo. We created a rosette using last years retired Halloween papers and the fantastic Big Shot Rosette die. We stamped the Frightening Feline in black on the background then using the Illuminate pad on black for the embellishment. We used a tag fom the Ghoulish Googlies for the journalling spot and then finished with Neutrals Designer Buttons. (We also finished with a bat stamped from the Googly Ghouls set and embellished with googly eyes)
The second page we created was a bit busy for my liking so I changed it slightly for the class (instead of stamping the Googly Ghouls witch in Basic Black with stamped her with versamark instead to give a tone on tone effect rather than too much busy black). I wanted to see if we could make the layered stamping effect work with a scrapbook layout. I love this effect of stamping over multiple layers. The colours on this page are Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie and Elegant Eggplant. The stamps used are the Googly Ghouls again. This witch is just perfect for embellishing a scrapbook page ;0)
Right, little Miss seems to be stirring so I had better post this sharpish (I have had this in draft since Thursday but not a moment to finish it!). I hope you are all having a lovely weekend and finding plenty of time for crafting ;0)

Happy Weekend Crafting All
