Hello, Connie Nichol here today with a scrapbook layout and a couple of cards created with Echo Park Paper Co.’s Halloween Town collection. I love scrapbooking photos from when my boys were little and cute. Now, as teenagers, they don’t dress up and go trick or treating any longer and I miss it. Ah well, at least I have memories.Here’s an image of the Halloween town collection – a great variety of Halloween colours and images – they are very versatile and very cute!
Step by Step:
I was in a triangular sort of mood, so I used a ruler and a pencil to quarter several sheets of patterned paper (just pencil a line from opposite corners and cut out your triangle). I stitched around the edges of each quarter with my Brother sewing machine. Machine stitching only takes a few minutes and it adds a nice touch to your page.
I decided I needed a banner in the page corner, and rather than hand cutting paper triangles, I used my Stampin’ Up! Christmas tree punch (just look at it upside down and cut off the stems) and added some candy corn stickers from the sticker sheet in the paper collection.
When you are fiddling with placement of things like the triangles for a pennant, I can’t recommend temporary adhesive highly enough like the repositionable adhesive from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L. It will let you try different arrangements without damage and then will hold strong once you find the perfect spot.
While I had all my bits and bats of the Echo Park Paper Co. collection laying about, I made a couple of quick cards from paper scraps and stickers. I stuck with my quarter triangle design and so the cards come together very quickly.
Happy Halloween every one!!
