Halloween Highlights with September Guest Designer Kat Benjamin

Today we welcome Kat Benjamin back for her second post with us this month! If you missed her first post, head there to see how she used our September products to create one amazing layout with lots of texture, but without a [real] stitch in sight! Today Kat has another layout to share with us with a totally different feel, one perfect for someone to record all of the fun that fall brings! Let’s take a look!

Hello everyone! It’s Kat here again to share my second post as a guest designer this month. I really wanted to create a fun Halloween layout to highlight all the awesome products in the September kit and add-ons, so I decided to do a layout that wrapped up our whole Halloween season last year. If your family is anything like mine, you probably do lots of activities throughout October, including a pumpkin patch visit, decorating for Halloween, and of course, the big day of trick-or-treating!

I had a lot of different photos from the month that I wanted to include, so I decided to create a grid layout.  I mixed my photos with squares of patterned paper.  

I embellished the squares with a variety of the fun things included in this month’s release – puffy hearts, labels, those amazing Halloween cardstock stickers.  I also added a title made with both Medium and Large Jane stamps and on the same patterned papers that were sprinkled throughout my grid.

I finished off the layout by adding the acetate stickers around the outside of my layout (in addition to my usual rips) and on some of the grid squares.

A big thank you again to both Elle and Meghann for having me this month.  I had so much fun creating with these products and I still have ideas brewing for more projects to create with this release.

Hi!  My name is Kat and I’m so excited to be joining you this month. I am a wife to Eric and a Mama to Piper (the girl) and Moose (the dog). We are lucky to be living in sunny Southern California right now, so we spend our weekends playing on the beach or going on small adventures around our town. I work full-time, but try to get my scrappy time whenever I can, as my “paper therapy” is very important! I also try to work out everyday and read at least a few books each month. My scrap style is pretty simple, but I try to make it as colorful as possible.

Be sure to follow Kat on Instagram and her blog to see more of her amazing designs. Thank you so much for inspiring us this month, Kat! We have loved having you here!
