Hey, Elle’s Studio friends! It’s Marsha here today, and I’m excited to share a fun traveler’s notebook spread I created for my 2021 October Daily album! I used the September 2022 kit and add-ons to make this Halloween layout documenting a costume party my oldest son attended.
Supplies | September 2022 Kit, Halloween Die Cuts, Jane Tile Alphabet Cardstock Stickers – Candy Corn, Autumn Chipboard Stickers, Tiny Autumn Hearts and Stars Puffy Stickers, Love You Paper Stack, Thankful Paper Stack, Halloween Tabs Stamp, Thin Labels Stamp, Thin Labels Metal Die, Outlined Stars Metal Die, Nesting Tags Metal Die, Everyday Tabs Vol. 2 Metal Die
I began the layout by trimming a patterned paper from the Thankful Paper Stack to use as a background for the left page of the spread. I cut a piece of white cardstock into a tag shape and used the Nesting Tags Metal Die and a patterned paper from the Thankful Paper Stack to make a reinforcer for the top. Next, I trimmed a pocket tag from the September Kit and included it as a layer behind my photo. Then, I used the Thin Labels Stamp and coordinating Metal Die to create a label to embellish the photo. I stamped onto the label with the Halloween Tabs Stamp and added machine stitching with black thread to provide additional interest.
For the title of the layout, I layered die cuts from the Halloween Die Cuts and completed the title with the candy corn Jane Tile Alphabet Cardstock Stickers. I used the Outlined Stars Metal Die to cut a star from a blue patterned paper in the Thankful Paper Stack. To complete the left page, I added a cute ghost from the Halloween Die Cuts and sprinkled a few stars from the Tiny Autumn Hearts and Stars Puffy Stickers.
For the right side of the layout, I chose a patterned paper from the Love You Paper Stack to serve as the background and trimmed a patterned paper from the Thankful Paper Stack to make a pocket. Next, I created a label using the Thin Labels Stamp and coordinating Metal Die. I added the label to the front of the pocket and machine stitched along three edges with black thread to hold the pocket in place. I added die cuts from the Halloween Die Cuts and scattered a few stars from the the Autumn Chipboard Stickers and Tiny Autumn Hearts and Stars Puffy Stickers to further embellish it.
I had so many great pictures I wanted to include from the party, so I chose to create photo strips. This also allowed room for journaling and additional embellishments. I printed my photos in strips and embellished them with die cuts from the September Kit, Halloween Die Cuts, and Autumn Chipboard Stickers. I also stamped words and phrases with the Halloween Tabs Stamp and black ink. To complete the photo strips, I added a tab from the Halloween Die Cuts and two additional tabs created with the Halloween Tabs Stamp and coordinating Everyday Tabs Vol. 2 Metal Die. I am happy to have this memory documented in such a fun way!
Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope I have given you some ideas for using the September kit and add-ons to create a spooktacular project! Please share your creations with us in our Elle’s Studio Facebook Group or on Instagram using the hashtag #ellesstudio. Happy creating!
