Pumpkin Party - Pocket Pages | with Nathalie

I am very excited to be here today to share a memory keeping project and inspire you to document your Halloween, or like I did, Dia de los Muertos with the Pumpkin Party collection! Snap those photos, get them printed and grab your supplies!
This is a 6x12 pocket spread that I will insert into my regular family album. I fell in love with the bright and festive colors in this collection and went first for the 6x6 paper pad to create most of my pockets. For the title card, I cut a piece of stripped paper to 4x6 and added my title with the Teensy type alphabet stickers in Tangerine directly on the photo paper. I embellished with two die-cuts, one each from the Chit Chat and the Odds & Ends packs.
For the second pocket, I picked a black tone-on-tone tree paper. I felt that my photos were pretty busy so it was important to have "quieter" papers to let the eyes rest. It is for this reason that I also made a pocket with a Petite Print paper on the other page.
The die-cuts on the edges above were chosen to match the paper on the right page below. For this fun 3x4 pocket, I cut the large word die-cut in half in order for it to fit. As a last minute addition, I put two googly eyes from the super fun Eye See You Shaped Sprinkles in the O's.
I love the ability to add a touch of humor thanks to some clever embellishments and I love the festive look of my spread. Here's one last look, in the album:
Whether you are a pocket scrapper, a layout maker or a TN spread creator, you will have fun matching your photos with the Pumpkin Party collection and documenting those memories!
Happy Halloween!

Pumpkin Parry - Bootiful Fun Layout | with Anita

Who’s enjoying all the fabulous Halloween creations using pumpkin Party?
I always enjoy the fabulous colour palette with Halloween patterned papers, so bright and fun.

I wanted to try something different using twine and mini googly eyed peg bats that I made 
I’ve also created a process video on how to make them yourself!
My idea for this layout was to have the twine like a string of lanterns 
that the bats were holding in the air and to have them holding my photos as well.

I used brads to hang the lanterns and twine for the added colour 
and dimension along with the coloured sprinkles. 
I fussy cut around the ephemera pieces from the Odds and Ends pack 
to take away the white border around them. This is always a personal choice as to whether you want to use the white edge or take it off. It really depends on your project at the time.
I decided on the cute little person with the mouse as he seemed a fitting match to my photo. 
My title 'bootiful fun' was selected from the 'Chit Chat' pack.
I've created a process video of how i created my layout

And here’s my supply list

Pumpkin Party Treat Box | with Kathy

I just love Halloween... it's such a fun time, and there is candy!! ( I have no will power...)  And what better way to package up a sweet treat than with some Pumpkin Party goodies!  I made this cute little house to hold some treats for a friend, take a peek...

I started with this file from Lori Whitlock for the house and tree shapes.  I constructed the house using the Midnight Masquerade and Party Plaid Papers.  I added some Dot-Stripe Petite Prints in Beetle BlackLilac and Citrus for the Tree, Roof and Trim.

Now for the fun part!  I embellished the house with goodies from the Icons Sticker Sheet and the Odds & Ends!  Here are some close-ups...

I just love that kitty!!!!

As a final touch I added one of the Silly Spiders Shaped Sprinkles to the chimney!

The bottom of the box opens up to hold some sweet treats!

Stop by the blog all of this week for more Pumpkin Party inspiration!  That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!
