8x8 Halloween Layouts for October

Hey guys! Today, I'm playing a bit of catch up. Last fall was such a busy time, I didn't get a chance to make the October pages for Rylee's album. This past week I got them done and thought I'd share them with you. For anyone who needs a little Halloween inspiration (or motivation!) to scrap their photos, I got you ...

For all 4 pages, I used a mix of Doodlebug's Happy Haunting and Ghost Town collection. I started with white card stock as the base, then layered on lots of cute pattern papers and embellishments (product links below). 

I always add the month on my first page so the October title from Ghost Town's Chit Chat was perfect. The 3D spider sticker (found here) is from the Little Boo Doodle-pops and I added a bit of twine for fun.

I LOVE this purple striped house (with the pink door!) so it had to be included. I tend to hoard these little Doodle-pops but I'm really trying to use them more. I mean really, what good are they doing stashed in box? Lol! You can find this one called Happy Haunting here and the purple print/stripe paper here
at Starlit Studios.

This next page was made with strips from 2 fun prints called Along Came a Spider and Spooky Spectrum. I added 3 white photo mats and a band of black card stock at the bottom to make the colors from the Halloween title stand out.

I added a journaling card so I could make notes about Rylee's "good times". I have a bunch of cute photos to add to these pages ... from school activities and time with her friends, to Halloween night with her sweet little brother.

Check out this close-up of the silly little Shaker-pops called Eye Candy. Love this! Oh my gosh, these shaker-pops are so cool and the title of this one kills me!! Seriously ... Eye Candy? Hilarious!! 

These two little eyeballs were part of the Eye Candy Shaker-pops so I added them to the "spooky" title. Rylee will think this is quite funny!

I wanted this last page to really be all about the pictures and the goodies Rylee got on Halloween night. So, I kept it simple and added the yummy little Doodle-pops called Cake and I-Scream.

To see all the other months in my 2021 album visit: January, February, March, April, May, June, July, August, September (coming soon), October, November, and December. Have fun!

12x12 Feelin Frosty Layout

Hello friends! We finally got to see some snow here in Georgia! It wasn't a lot but it was so beautiful. It covered the ground and the trees and it looked like a peaceful winter wonderland. So, I was inspired to create this pretty 12x12 layout.

I made this with the Simple Stories, Feelin' Frosty collection and I love the pink and green colors. It's a little more unique for winter, don't you think? For the base, I used black card stock and layered on the Winter Days plaid print. Then I added a smaller sheet of white card stock. (All product links below.)

I created 2 photo mats at the top with a few polka dot prints. The "Let it Snow" card is from the 4x6 elements and then ... I added the goodies! The cute pink mittens and the snowflakes (card stock and acrylic) are die cuts from Doodlebug's Winter Wonderland Odds and Ends and the blue twine is also Doodlebug.

I thought the snowmen were precious so I cut those out of a 4x4 elements card with a pair of scissors. Then I added a few clear Doodlebug jewels on the snowflakes for a bit of winter sparkle!

On the right side, I added a few more pretty pattern papers. You could use these for photos, journaling or leave them blank and let the cute winter trees get all the attention!

Hope you are enjoying the season and finding time to scrap your memories. Thanks so much for stopping by.

NEW Down on the Farm Album

Happy Friday everyone! We've had a great week at Artsy Albums and I'm excited to share my latest album. But first, I want to remind you of the adorable heart shaped Valentine's Day album called Lots of Love that I shared with you on Tuesday. The acrylic album and the instructions for this project are now available in my shop! (Links below.)

Next up is today's newbie! This fun album is called "Down on the Farm" and it's shaped like a cute little red barn. I made a similar kit years ago that was really popular so I figured it might be time for a new one!

I designed and cut the album covers out of high quality, black acrylic and used card stock for the inside pages. I chose a wonderful Simple Stories paper collection called Homegrown. It's perfect for farm life photos or everyday pics!

If you grew up on a farm or live on one now, this would be a sweet place to save some of your childhood memories or the new ones you're creating today. Add photos of your beautiful property, your favorite animals, and time spent with family and friends.

It would also be wonderful for an afternoon at the farmer's market, a school field trip, a farm themed birthday party or a baby shower!

What about a day, picking your own fruits and vegetables? Not only do you get to enjoy nature and sunshine but you'll also go home with the freshest produce ever! Great family activity.

This Down on the Farm album has 12 scrapbook pages (6 double-sided) and room for 30 photos. The album measures 8"x10" and the scrapbook pages are 8"x6".

It has lots of fun elements like 2 pockets, 1 fold-out page and 4 flippies ... like the one in the photo above. And speaking of the photo above, how cute and colorful is that quilt print? I love that.

My Down on the Farm album is in the shop today along with my new heart shaped acrylic album and the instructions for the Lots of Love project. I've added the links below. 

Thanks for stopping by the blog today. If you have time, leave me a comment. I'd love to hear from you! 😍
