Sweet & Spooky Halloween Layouts by Karla Yungwirth
Hi there crafty friends! Karla here today from Creative Love Affair, and I am so so super excited to be a Guest Designer today for the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog! It is an amazing honor!
Today, I’m sharing some Halloween photos I’ve scrapbooked from a few years ago using the Bo Bunny Wonderfully Wicked Collection.
It definitely is wonderful and spooky, and so fun to play with! These pictures were taken when my now 9 year old daughter, Amie, was 4 – and this year, before we even looked at these pics, my now 4 year old, Erica, decided to wear this exact costume – which her cousin had worn when she was this age! Now, to find those photos! That’s one of the reasons I love scrapbooking – looking through older pictures, remembering, and getting family talking about what they remember.
I loved this background paper, and didn’t want to cover up the little witch silhouettes in the center and bottom right corner, so I layered my photos and papers so you could still see them. I found some awesome die cuts in the coordinating ephemera pack to add to my layout.
I used a sentiment sticker and alpha stickers to spell out my title, two of these awesome arrow cork diecuts and lots of sequins from SpiegelMom Scraps.
I wrote out my journaling on strips of white cardstock and added some Ranger Black Soot Distress Ink around the edges.
For my second layout I used some sweet baby pictures of Erica, who was not quite 1 here! I can’t believe how fast time flies! I used some of the spooky ‘newsprint’ cardstock in the Bo Bunny collection along the top of my layout, adding some more cork and sequins.
My Cricut worked great to cut the title. After I chose the font I moved the letters closer together and welded them so they didn’t cut individually. I had this adorable caterpillar border from Cosmo Cricket in my stash and was so happy to remember it and pull it out to use! I wrote my journaling along the bottom of my layout and then stamped the date with a SMASH date stamp.
I love creating embellishment clusters, and after fussy cutting the framed pumpkin from the patterned paper, that’s what I did. I created a cute little tag to layer on and added a few more sequins and some baker’s twine.
