Hocus Pocus Halloween Mini Album with Nightfall

Hello there friends and crafty peeps! I'm back again to share another project with the amazing new collection Nightfall.  I'm seriously swooning over this collection. It's all  the things I love....vintage and retro and Halloween!

Oh how I love a big chunky mini album! This one is a beast at 6 x 6 x 2 inches and it's super heavy : )
I've added a garden of coordinating flowers layered over leaves and stars die cut from glitter paper and loopy twine bows.
Spiderwebs with a corner orientation create a nice frame for the focal images . That glitter spider is a spooktacular holiday embellishment.
Metal charms in Halloween themes hang from twine under a loopy bow of houndstooth ribbon.
I had such a good time layering the patterned papers with fun embellishments like the die cut banner and handmade flowers.

Pockets in minis are a must to utilize all the real estate. You can also add additional mementos like tickets or other flat keepsakes.
 Inside the pocket is a sweet little folded insert that adds loads of room for pictures and journaling.
This set of pages has a tip in to take advantage of the gorgeous vintage image. I clipped on a smaller image from the 6 x 6 paper pad to fill in the corner. Also it says witches better have my candy. When I ready that I about fell outta my chair laughing!
Here's another pocket page. I added another of the smaller images and tucked in a glittey die cut star.
Waste not want not is my motto so I used up a bit of the scrap from cutting the patterned paper into the larger pages and tucked it into this insert.
Here's another tip in image for this set of pages. I've also got a die cut frame accented with enamel dots and a sentiment from the sticker sheet.
The sentiment from this page is fussy cut from one of the larger vintage images. I've layered it over a sheet music topped die cut frame and die cut banner. Glitter stars and enamel dots are perfect embellishments for the inside of a book sine they are relatively flat.
The last set of pages has a large paper doily turned into a frame by topping it with patterned papers, a sweet little bow and another star.
Please enjoy this flip through video I've prepared......

Wishing everyone a happy and productive day : ) Ginny

Halloween Pocket & Tags with the Nightfall Collection

Hey there friends and crafty peeps! I hope you are all well.  I'm just so excited to be sharing the project I created wit the new Nightfall collection. How much do I love Nightfall? I can not even begin to describe how fabby the patterns are and how much fun the vintagy images are to work with!

I could not possibly decide what images I wanted to use first so I had to go with a pocket with tags plan. This makes a great non-traditional scrapbook when  filled with pictures and journaling. Fill this up with your families favorite memories and display with your seasonal decor.
I do think that pockets should look as good when the tags are removed so I added details like stickers from the Cardstock Sticker Sheet and die cut spiderwebs. There's also tinsel topped crepe fringe and coordinating flowers.
The 6 x 6 paper pads have patterns that are just the perfect scale for tags. Nightfall also has the images in the smaller size so I just had to layer them up with some die cut doilies, holiday charms, and ribbon trim to to the tags.
Sequins and clips in matching colors are fun details to add that don't create to much bulk for the tags to fit in the pocket.
The backs of the tags are covered with the patterned paper for a nice finished look.

Please enjoy this tutorial on how I created the pocket....
Check back on the blog tomorrow  for details on this amazing Nightfall Halloween Collection from Authentique Papers.

Wising everyone a happy and productive day : ) Ginny
