A Halloween Mini

Greetings, weekend blog-goers!
I have a little Halloween mini to share with you today
that I created for 
I must say that I absolutely cannot wait until September 1st: 
 yes, I will have my Halloween decorations out and about. 
 And since I decorate early for Christmas, I get a good 2 and a half months
 out of my Fall decorations :)   I’m in love with all of the replicated vintage
 wares such as black cats, owls and jack ‘o lanterns
…black cats are at the top of my list though!

Vintage Street Market has a new assortment of beautiful 
Halloween-themed papers by Graphic 45, Echo Park and Making Memories.
  These papers were the base for the pages of the album that I created:
 I cut one of the little card motifs from the Happy Haunting paper
 and attached it to the front with foam dots. 
 I then outlined it with Aqua Twirly Twine.  For the embellishments 
I used the Sky Blue Paper Flowers (glittered in aqua), vintage buttons 
and a bit of yummy Black Crepe Paper Fringe
 Onto the rings (holding the pages together) I tied on a few different ribbons, 
  And don’t throw out those cute cupcake picks…save them for your paper projects
 as I did with the handsome bat peeking from beyond the fringe :)

Below is a look at the inner pages of the album…
I will point out all of the lovely things that you can purchase 
directly from Vintage Street Market!

 I hand-cut the little trick-or-treaters from one of the vintage Treat Bags  
offered by VSM and attached it to the paper with a glue pen.
 I also embellished with Vintage Tickets, a bit of aqua crepe that I cut into fringe.

 An old playing card and bingo piece seemed the
perfect match for this cute little black cat sticker from Martha Stewart.

 Jenni Bowlin has always carried a great selection of 
vintage inspired goods...these chipboard buttons are among some of 
my all-time favorites!

Again, I cut one of the cards from the Happy Haunting paper 
and used it as a journal spot.  A bit of glittery orange Ric Rac 
peeks out from under the aqua trim.

  I love little alpha stickers…they come in so handy! 
 Here I’ve used them on both pages, along with another cut-out from the vintage treat sack. 
 And there’s another cupcake pick (the ghost...handily applied with a glue dot). 

After completing the pages to my albums (most especially those with chipboard bases),
 I like to trim the edges with twine, in this case Black Twirly Twine
 I have found that the best way to attach the twine to the often 
thin chipboard edge is to use a Ballpoint-Tip Glue Pen.  
With all of that, we have a sweet mini to display a few memories from
Halloween 2012 in...I can't wait!

Thanks for stopping by!
