After Halloween

Now that Halloween has passed, we can safely assume that you have some pictures to scrapbook as well as a stash of candy hiding somewhere. But you can’t stash your candy or photos away forever! Pull out your candy and find some time to scrapbook your Halloween photos.

Susan loved taking the classic and well-known sketch challenge to inspire her recent Halloween layout. If you’re looking for some inspiration as well, you’re in the right place!

The Power of Paper

Paper is an essential part of traditional scrapbooking, and you can harness that power of paper not only as a foundation for your pictures to work off of but also as inspiration and embellishments. Halloween paper always makes a bold statement when it comes to scrapbooking, and you can use those designs to add to your layout. Shiloh similarly mimicked her paper in her recent Halloween layout as well. You can take a look here.


Special events like Halloween and other Holidays always seem to generate a handful of cherished memories and the best way to capsulate such memories is journaling! Expressions is a wonderful way to simplify journaling since it provides a variety of shapes and sizes to fit your versatile crafting and journaling needs.


The Haunted Accessory set is full of templates perfect for Halloween, including one of our favorites; your classic jack-o-lantern. You can use glitter to create a glowing grin on your jack-o-lantern or just use a pen and ink it in.
