With Halloween coming up next week I decided to share a little Trick or Treats scrapbooking inspiration with you today. I wish that I had taken more photos of my own children and their trick or treat adventures, though I did photograph them in their costumes. But I do regret the lack of Halloween photos with my children interacting with their friends.
This two page layout was created using CTMH's Art Philosophy cartridge and Close to my Heart stamps. I know I have mentioned this before, but I love adding stamps to my layouts! I used two charcoal grey 11.5 x 11.5 inch squares of cardstock as backgrounds, framed by 12 x 12 sheets of Kraft cardstock. Using Close to my Heart Halloween print cardstock, I cut the large tag shaped backgrounds.
I cut two rectangles in Kraft cardstock to used as a large mat. I also cut the small orange mats with the Art Philosophy cartridge. I used a CTMH small star stamp to stamp a design onto the Kraft cardstock, and then I put a dot of black Stickles in the center of each star.
The large stars were also cut with Art Philosophy and stamped with CTMH star stamps. I added a black pearl to the center of each larger star. Also worthy of noting in the photos above and below, I used the edge of the large print background tag as a guide for my journaling.
The font used on the layout is also from Art Philosophy. I added a few black pearls and some dots of black Stickles to the letters. Best of all, this layout was so easy and is something that anyone can make with just the basic Art Philosophy cartridge set. For details on the Close to my Heart Art Philosophy set and the Stamp of the Month set, please see below.
