October is Coming...

..... and that means it is time to get out all of the old Halloween supplies and buy new bewitching goodies of course!

Halloween is my favorite Holiday to create layouts for as the paper and embellishments are so whimsical and fun!
At Target in their $1 section at the front they have sets of Halloween paper. Each set contains 6 sheets of paper. They also have about 5 different embellishments to match the paper.
Here is a paper bag album I made using the $1 paper and embelishments.

I really enjoy the process of making these books. 6 x 6 is a great size as you can get four pages out of a 12 x 12 sheet of paper.

Paper: $1.00

stickers: $1.00

cardstock for photo mats: $1.60

paper bag book: $2.00

Filling it with family photos come Halloween: Priceless!

For the last 3 years now, my favorite Halloween paper line has been by Making Memories. I love the softer vintage colors they use. I usually, apart from the Internet, can only find it at Target. I was at Michaels the other day and they had the newest collection! It is not available at every Michaels as we have 3 within driving distance and only 1 has it. But it is really lovely paper! I was able to get the big paper pack of 36 sheets for only $12.99.
Here is a card I made mixing Making Memories Spook Alley paper,October Afternoon paper, and Inkadinkado Clear Stamps.

I love the clear Halloween stamps this year by Inkadinkado. I have two of their sets and have seen a third online. Aren't these little trick or treaters cute?!

When I got home with my new stamp sets I pulled out my coffee dyed tags and black Staz-on ink.

I hope your having a lovely week, Lindsey
