Halloween Mini Album

I want to share the Halloween mini album that I have been working on this week. Most of the products used in this album are from the We R Memory Keepers Spookville Collection. I love the colors and patterns in this collection. It was a lot of fun to work with. Here is my album:

This album turned out to be bigger than I anticipated, lol. I used 2.5 inch book rings and those don't seem quite big enough, but it will have to do for now.

The cover is 6 1/2 by 8 1/2 inches and I kept it pretty simple. I used two of the Spellbinders Labels Four dies and then layered the Spookville sticker on top. I covered the back of a smaller sticker and added it to the title sticker like a dangling charms.

Page 1 of my mini- all of the papers and the pumpkin sticker are from the Spookville collection. I used a scallop punch from Oriental Trading and the 2" fikars circle punch to mat the pumpkin sticker.

The flap on this page opens to reveal a photo mat.

My album has 4 pages of this size and 4 pages that are about half of this size. Each of the 4 larger pages has a pocket at the top that holds a photo mat and a pocket on the side that can be used for additional photos or journaling. I am just going to use the first page to share these details so I don't have to bore you with extra photos of each of these pages, lol.

Pages 2 and 3 of my mini- all of the papers and tags are from the Spookville collection. On the 2nd page I created a band with the Martha Stewart Iron Fence punch to hold a few tags and photos. Page 3 is one of the smaller pages and was created as a pocket to hold a larger tag for photos or journaling (sorry, it is hard to see in this picture since it is a white tag against a white background). I embellished it with a smaller tag and a key from Martha Stewart.

A closeup of the tag and key.

Page 4 and 5- papers are from the Spookville Collection. On page 4 I created a pocket using the Martha Stewart Iron Fence punch for tags and photos. The ghost tag and October sticker are also from the Spookville collection. The ticket behind the ghost tag is from Little Yellow Bicycle.

Page 5 has two flaps that open and reveal a space for photos. I used 2 of the Tim Holtz silver hitch fasteners as handles to open the flaps. 

The 6th and 7th pages of the mini. Page 6 has a banner sticker from the Spookville collection with space at the top for a photo. This page also has an additional pocket that I am planning on adding photobooth strips of the kids that I hope to take with my iPad. Page 7 is another smaller pocket page with a large tag. I turned one of the chipboard stickers into a tag and added a Making Memories charm.

Pages 8 amd 9. I made a 3 1/4 inch rosette and layered it with a scalloped circle punch from Oriental Trading and a 2 inch punched circle from Fiskars. The tree sticker is from the Spookville collection. The 9th page has another pocket made with the Martha Stewart iron fence punch for tags and photos.

Pages 10 and 11. I kept this album simple and consistent. On page 10 we have another band made from the iron punch and Spookville papers to hold more tags and photos. Page 11 is another smaller pocket with the large tag. I added another chipboard sticker and Martha Stewart key. I am not usually a big fan of purple, but I like the addition of it the album. I know my three girls are loving it, lol.

Pages 12 and 13. Page 12 has another pocket made with the iron fence punch and sticker from the Spookville collection. The green journaling tag is from the Spookville collection and the ticket is from Little Yellow Bicycle. Page 13 has 2 smaller pockets with tags that serve as embellishment. I love the cute little calendar sticker from this collection. The arrow points to the 30th because that is the night kids do their trick or treating in our area.

A closeup of page 13.

Pages 14 and 15- almost finished, lol. Is anyone still with me, lol? For page 14 I cut the shape from one of the journaling cards and added chipboard number stickers also from the Spookville collection. I left space at the top for another photo. This page also has another pocket that I plan to use for more photobooth strips. Page 15 is the last smaller pocket page. I used a chipboard tag and another Making Memories charm to embellish the larger tag.

Page 16- the last page. Finally, lol! This page is embellished with another 3 1/4 inch rosette layered with the same scallop and 2 inch punches. The pumpkin sticker is another piece from the Spookville collection.

 If you made it this far thank you and I hope you enjoyed my mini. I am still working on my December Daily album. I think I finally figured out how I want to embellish the cover of the album. Hopefully I will have time to finish it this week. We have lots going on in the next few days with school parties and Beggar's Night. Have a Happy Halloween and thanks for stopping by!
