Hello, Connie Nichol here with a Halloween project featuring the Happy Haunting Collection from Simple Stories and two stamp sets from Quietfire Design. My oldest son went through the ‘ghoul’ phase when he was 9 and 10 – he wanted only to be a scary masked ghoul with a weapon. The scarier looking the weapon, the better. Sigh. Gone were the cute animal or super hero costumes.
Here’s the Simple Stories mini-kit I used:
This is such a great kit! Six sheets of double sided patterned paper and a 6×12 sheet of cardstock stickers is the perfect size to create a handful of Halloween layouts and cards without being overwhelmed.
Here’s the Quietfire Design stamp sets I used – there are 9 stamps in the Crows set and even more in the Halloween Wicked collection! It’s nice to have so many stamps to choose from – big and little, crows facing right and left – you’re bound to find the perfect option for any Halloween project, whether it be party favours or scrapbook pages.
One of my favourite stamps in the Crows set is the musical note stamp. Use it to create card backgrounds, or borders as I did here. Just stamp the musical notes repeatedly below or adjacent to each other.
I also made a card while I had everything out….. so easy to stamp on a piece of patterned paper and embellish with a couple of stickers while all the bits and pieces of the creative scrapbooking process are laying about. Don’t you love that black cat sticker? 🙂 Happy Halloween!!
Supplies Used: Simple Stories patterned paper and stickers, Quietfire Design stamps, Clearsnap Ink, Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L tape runner and foam adhesive, Elizabeth Craft Design stitched rectangle dies, Pink Paislee acetate alphabet letters, Martha Stewart border punch, Sakura black pen.

Connie, love that you used a white background for the layout. It pops the images and mask in the photo. Gives it a good grounding. Love your style.
Wonderful page. I love simple stories mini collections. Just the right amount of paper and stickers for a double page with some left over…usually I have enough for 4-5 layouts.
