Vintage Inspired Halloween Candy Tin

My love of vintage Halloween decor inspired me to make this vintage inspired Halloween mini candy tin arrangement. I found the mini flip top candy tin at Tuesday Morning. It's not a Halloween tin, but I thought the colors worked for this project. I used stickers and chipboard pieces from the Simple Stories Vintage Halloween collection along with Jolee's Boutique halloween candy embellishments and a Tim Holtz pumpkin to decorate the tin. I also made a Halloween rosette and attached it to an orange and black stripe paper straw to add height to the arrangement. I was able to fit a lot of vintage looking Halloween pieces into this tiny little tin!

Halloween Stacked Coffins

I made this Halloween stacked coffin piece after being inspired by a blog post by Sarah R. I went into my Halloween stash and pulled out things that I thought would look cool on the coffins. A skeleton, skulls, bones and pumpkins definitely needed a spot on this piece! Since Authentique always makes the best Halloween papers, I decided to cover the coffins using a combination of their Mysterious and Moonlit collections. The skeleton paper is perfect for a coffin! I absolutely had a blast making this piece!

Happy Halloween Scrapbook Layout

My daughter was a pink poodle for Halloween 2005. I sat on those photos for years waiting for the perfect Halloween scrapbook paper to come along that included pink in the color story. The Simple Stories Happy Haunting Collection was the perfect paper to scrap those photos. The papers and embellishments have pink in the color scheme along with the traditional orange and black Halloween colors. It also doesn't hurt that the embellishments are super cute!

I Wanna Be a Care Bear Scrapbook Layout

Being behind on scrapping photos can sometimes pay off. This Halloween photo of my daughter from 2003 (yes, 2003!) was sitting around waiting to be scrapped until the perfect paper collection finally came along. The Simple Stories Dream Big collection isn't a Halloween collection, but it had all the colors and elements I needed to scrap this adorable photo of my daughter as Cheer Bear. Think outside the box when looking for papers to scrap Halloween photos. Sometimes the perfect papers are from collections that are not traditional Halloween themes. I'll admit that I stocked up on this collection because it's just so cute! I know I'll be able to use it to scrap other photos of my daughter. I'm in love with how this layout turned out. It's just so bright and cheery!
