Okay... it's almost October and now we can start talking... crafting Halloween :) I am a huuuuge fan of the super cute Home Sweet Home mini album we got in our last DT package and of course I decided to create a haunted Mansion album with it using the new Sweet & Spooky collection.

To start, I used almost all of the patterns papers to cover every page of the album. To do that, I traced the house on each paper, using one of the pages as a stencil and then I cut out all of the shapes. I covered each page front and back. I then created the curtains to go into the windows by using the stencils included in the album. 

To embellish my cover, I used die-cuts from the Odds & Ends pack. I trimmed the white borders a bit to make them narrower. I used the "An eye for an eye" black sprinkles to add to the eyes of the small characters. I also used some jewels to make it "bling". ;)

To add some extra sparkle and craziness, I added a lot of trim, tulle and ribbon to the binder rings. I also wanted to create a small dangly-charm-tassel-thingy and I used the super adorable Little Charmers from the collection and some other materials from my stash. Love this new product... the charms are just adorable...

I think the album looks so cute from the outside but it also has a ton of cuteness inside.   On the inside I decorated each page a bit (or a lot) and I left enough space throughout the album to add photos and little notes. 

Take a look at the inside pages.

A page to write down what you did for Halloween or during the month of October.

A cute little Halloween scene...

A few tags I cut out from the Hello Sugar paper. I added fringes on some of them too...

Loooove the acetate sheet in this collection. It gives the ghost some added decoration and interest and when you lift it up...

... it reveals the little mummy ghost... :)

Some lists I cut out from the Candy Sticks paper and folded to fit the album. You can pull on the little tab...

... open the paper strip and write down your faves! 

The back of the album is very cute too... I added a few stickers and was done! I wish you all a fun October month and remember to take a ton of photos for your layouts and mini albums... :)
