Throw Back Thursday: 2012 Halloween Album

It's throw-back Thursday over here at Artsy Albums today!  I wanted to share one of my favorite Halloween albums.  I made this 10 years ago, in 2012, and it was originally an album kit.  Do any of you have this oldie-but-goodie in your Artsy Albums collection?

Halloween Scrapbook Album with Witch

Do you remember October Afternoon? They were one of my favorite paper manufacturers back in the day and this collection was called Witch Hazel.

I love the cool retro vibe of this collection. That sassy little witch sitting on the tombstone is adorable!

Although I don't do this anymore (why, I'm not sure ... I should!), I used to make my own cute embellishments by stamping in my albums. The spider in the round label sticker is actually a stamp. I wish I could remember the manufacturer ... it's so cute!

Isn't this stripe with the tiny black dot fun? And Mr. Owl kind-of looks like he's been to Hogwarts :), LOL.

Here are a few more examples of where I stamped images in my album. I think they made a plain journaling spot really cute!

The Happy Halloween and broom are also stamps!

Unfortunately, I didn't save the packaging for my stamp set. If anyone knows of the manufacturer and name of the set, you'll get brownie points for letting me know :). If I find out, I'll update the information here.

Isn't this collection fun? I wish I could find something similar now with the same retro-vibe.

Well, I hope you enjoyed taking a peek into one of my older projects. I think it's fun to look back and remember a technique, style, or paper company. Maybe I'll post some other throw-back projects in the future. Until then, happy crafting everyone!!


  1. Cute album!
