Halloween Craft Projects 2018: Layouts, Cards, Treat Bags, etc.

layout made using simple stories happy halloweenby Richelle Naegle

It’s October and now I feel like I can officially start creating for Halloween, and I love to make spooky and cute crafts. This year I think I got a little carried away with the scrapbook layouts! There are just too many fun Halloween paper collections to choose from this year. I couldn’t decide which one I wanted to get, so I think I got them all, including:

This first scrapbook layout was not created using any of those product lines, I actually went with the Simple Stories Happy Halloween Collection Kit. This is a perfect solution if you just want to make a couple pages (or a bunch of cards). It came with a sheet of SN@P Cards that are easy to add as an embellishment to your scrapbook pages.

This next layout I made is a design you can download for free (check out the October downloads post here). The paper collection I used is called Hocus Pocus, designed by Echo ParkI absolutely love this layout that Aaron designed. I had to make it, and it was so easy with the collection kit!

Exclusive PhotoPlay Scrapbook Bundles

Every once in awhile I run across a product that I just fall in love with immediately. Well, I fell in love with pretty much the entire product collection by PhotoPlay. I’m not sure how long they have been around, but I don’t think it’s been very long; I just found them recently. The collection that I saw first was O’ Canada by Becky Fleck. The moose and the other adorable animals made me take a second look and research to find out where I could get this collection. I soon found that I loved all their paper collections and I thought our customers would love them too! To make it easy to get the entire collection we have made exclusive PhotoPlay scrapbook bundles for each of the collections we carry. Most bundles will include a 12″ x 12″ Collection Pack, a set of die cuts, a stamp set, and a die set. Sometimes the bundles have different products, it just depends on what is released with each set. The bundles offer you a convenient shopping solution and a better price! Continue reading “Exclusive PhotoPlay Scrapbook Bundles” »

Our free May design downloads are really fun this year. Aaron Meyers is our designer and got really creative this month. You can download (1) summer-themed icons file, (1) Mother’s Day-themed print, and (2) Cinco de Mayo-themed party prop files. Richelle was so excited about the Cinco de Mayo project, she already made all the props (pictured).

If you have never used an SVG file, then you should know that they work with electronic cutting machines, like the Explore Air 2 and the CAMEO 3. All you have to do is upload the file, load your paper, and watch the machine do all the work cutting it (or drawing, scoring, etc.). Here are the designs (scroll to the bottom of the post to see the download links): Continue reading “May 2018 – Free Monthly SVG Design Downloads” »
