All the happy haunts here! Such a fun layout! You’ll spot that I trim the moon & stars pattern paper Sweater Weather 6″ x 6″ Paper Stack into one inch strips. I connect the strips together to create the appearance of 12 inch paper at both the top and base of my layout design. Such a great way to maximize your six inch papers!

To enhance the spooky starry background, I fussy cut the stars & moon journaling tag from the October 2018 Kit, and add a star die cut or two. I further add to this look with the inclusion of the Puffy Stars and Dots Stickers—so cool!
I feature the Halloween Wood Veneer in the top corner of the layout, coating the “OCT 31” in yellow ink. The colored veneer really pops!

I use the same ink to hand color the Trick or Treat Wood Veneer in the opposite corner at the base of my page, and add more of those fabulous stars! Here’s a closer look for you:

That title is errrrything!!! Whether you use it on layouts, pocket pages or even cards, the Trick or Treat Wood Veneer is a must-have! When it comes to Halloween, we need a pumpkin or two, right?!

The Jack-o-lantern veneer from the Halloween Wood Veneer is super cute! A perfect embellishment for my two trick or treaters in the photo! (And yes, they sure do love candy!) The second pumpkin is one which I drew and cut out from black cardstock. I back it with more of the Sweater Weather papers and position my layered photo onto it.

The layers beneath my photo are created with the Autumn Shipping Tags, October 2018 Kit, and more of the Sweater Weather papers. Wood Veneer & Autumn Fun Stickers complete the photo cluster, and add that extra BOO! factor. For finishing touches, I add the “Happy Haunting” subtitle with the black Jane Alphabet Stickers and fussy cut some bats from my left over one inch pattern paper strips.

Totally spook-tacular!!! I hope I have inspired you to document your Halloween memories with our fabulous October products! Happy haunting!
