Halloween In Miniature.....

Hi All! It's been way too long since my last post, but theater season has begun in earnest. October has been full of costuming and makeup for the Middle School production of A Midsummers Night Dream and the Upper School production of Rock of Ages. I've also been reorganizing my craft space and creating a guest room in my basement. Yikes!

But in between the theater gigs, I wanted to share a mini album that I created for Halloween using the 3x3 envelopes from September's Creating Kindness kit.

Let's take a look:

For this album, covered heavy duty chipboard with papers from Close To my Heart's Jeepers Creepers collection, and decorated the front with elements from the Jeepers Creepers Complements and Assortment packs.

Here's a look at the cover:

The inside pages were made using 3x3 envelopes (2 per page), which I covered with the same papers. One of the papers in the collection is made up of a series of 4x6 and 3x4 images that you can cut apart to make inserts for pocket scrapbooking. I cut down some of those images to make tags to fit in the pockets of each page.

I used black cardstock to make a photo folder that tucks in the top of each page, and matted the folders using Pansy, Raspberry, Lemon, and Willow cardstocks. I used some decorative corner punches on the edges of the photo folders to add interest.

 Using my mini stapler, I also stapled a bit of ribbon from my stash onto each of the tags to use as a pull tab.

 Here's a quick look at some of the other pages as well:

And here's the front of the album once again:

Hope you enjoyed this quick peek at my Halloween mini. Stay tuned for the Rose Blossom blog hop coming up on November 1st!

Until then, have a wonderfully creative week!
