Halloween Home Decor with CTMH

Despite a very busy Thanksgiving weekend, I have managed to sneak in some crafting time!  Both of these projects have been on my mental ‘to do’ list for quite some time and I am so pleased they are complete!

My subway poster sign was inspired by one I saw on Pinterest- the best part is it cost me about $10 to make my own! All of the paper was from the Spellbound paper that was on my website a few days ago- it was about $2.75 in the while supplies last section (it is not there now but there is lots of other great goodies- check it out here!)

The piece of wood I bought at home depot- it was a much longer piece that I had the staff cut for me into three equal pieces (2 more projects can be created later on now!).  The images on my sign were all cut from the Cricut Art philosophy and the Cricut Artbooking cartridges -both can be purchased here.
 My ‘BOO” decoration are just pieces of 2×4 I had in the house already- my sister cut them down (she wanted to create her own set) and her fee was leaving me three pieces.  I painted them orange after giving them a quick sand.  For my stems I stacked different green buttons- used glue dots to stick them together and liquid glass to stick them on my pumkins.  The BOO is a title off the Cricut Artbooking that I just cut apart- I cut this out on some of our black glitter paper.  The letters were also stuck on with liquid glass (for both projects).

I LOVE how our product can be used for such cute home decor items!

Artbooking: Halloween Layout

So I have a confession to make? I do not like scrapbooking Halloween! I have LOTS and LOTS of pictures and they are wonderful but for some reason I never feel inspired to work on scrapbooking them! It is like a chore but it is one that I really need to do.

When I saw our artbooking cartridge for the first time I noticed the cute Halloween layouts right away and thought- cute! and then moved on….
but they are cute and I REALLY needed to get some of these photos on paper so I sat down and did it! One layout anyway.

I did enjoy doing this one for the majority of the time… it did start to get to the point where I had to force myself to finish.  I think I have a block for this holiday beyond the event itself- once the fun decor and costumes get put away so does the whole event for me.  This year I will scrapbook photos during the holiday…. I bet that will help! LOL!

For my layout I wanted to fit a bunch of photos on- so I used our flip flaps! They are the perfect way to add more photos without making your page crowded.  See my close up photos below of one of the flip flaps- we now have a variety of sizes (here I used two 4×6 and a 4×4).
