ScrapAhead – Halloween or Trick-or-Treat

ScrapAhead – Halloween or Trick-or-Treat

This is the very first in my series of ScrapAhead™ pages!  These are ideas you can use as a jumping off point to create your own pages, by using either the products I show you, or something similar.  Many holidays are so busy and you might like to get a jump start on creating some scrapbook pages, so that as soon as you can print your photos after an event, you can get them on a page and have completed pages in no time!

Today’s idea is for Halloween or Trick-or-Treat.

The background was not stamped.  We used a stencil which we made by cutting a shape with a die.  Then randomly placed the stencil around the background pages, and sponged on the darker ink.

The black swirly shape was from black paper we ran through a die cut machine using another die.

The skeleton heads are stamped on.  We used a glue pen on the eyes, and added glitter.

The right hand page uses the same boarder elements as are on the left page, but this time they are added to the top.

You can cut several mats and just leave them off the page until you are ready to adhere the pictures.  That gives you options when you put the page together.  The borders on the orange mats were made using a rolling stamp.  You could use these for pictures, or use for journaling.

The little flag has sponged edges, a stamped imagae, and is adhered with a brad.

All the products on these pages were from Stampin’Up, and if you don’t have a consultant, you can shop and get help from my friend Georgia Gugiere!  However, you can certainly see how you could use these ideas and substitute with products you may have on hand.

I will soon be having some ScrapAhead™ classes both online and in person, and will have more information on that coming soon. They are going to be FUN!
