happy... Pumpkins & Halloween


Morning all!

I recently completed Emma's layout for the pumpkin patch, carving, and Halloween fun. I used Storyteller's club pack (I got this when I attended their class at the GASC in Arlington in June). They have great cs quality, and some thin chipboard diecuts and thicker chipboard accents that you can alter. Their more expensive pack even includes ribbons and brads w/ additional cs.



I don't have circle nesties, or circle punches... just the good old reliable CM circle cutters and mat. I have never been able to make myself spend $$ on the punches, or even the circle nesties for that matter (especially now with the cricut!).








I love to journal, but sometimes like the clean look with title, pics, and embellies. So, hidden journalling to the rescue! Here, I made what looks like a file folder and tucked it under the pic of them dressed for Halloween. I used post-bound albums, so once I insert the lo, I use my craft knife to cut out an area for people to remove the journalling to read (and to save the page from being taking in and out of the album).



Enjoy!
Kristin
