A Candy-Colored Halloween with Mary-Ann Maldonado

Halloween is filled with colors—from costumes to candy—so why not use all of those fun colors on a layout to document the spookiest holiday of the year? To finish off Halloween Week, let’s check out a new layout created by design team member Mary-Ann Maldonado to get some inspiration using our October 2019 Kit and extras!

Hey everyone! Fall is my absolute favorite season of all. We are the busiest in October, more than we are every other month of the year besides December. We carve pumpkins, go to a local park for Screamfest, do a corn maze, pick apples, and of course trick-or-treat. I gotta tell ya, you are never to old to go around the neighborhood in a costume and collect candy! Just ask these boys!

I love starting with a darker color base paper for my Halloween layouts. Today, I chose gray because my photos were taken at dusk, so they have a lot of gray tones in them.  I had several photos for this event so I narrowed them down into groups for different layouts. For this layout, I used the photos of the boys, ready to attack the neighborhood. I brightened up the center of my layout with white cardstock and layered the white with varying halloween colors and patterns found in the Home Sweet Home 6 x 6 Paper Stack.

I used a small hole punch to cut out the circular numbers on the 3″ x 4″ Halloween Journaling Tag, labeling the kids that came to our party.  I didn’t have a #6 so I took out the Good Times Stamp and created one!  

The 3″ x 4″ “Hocus Pocus” Halloween Journaling Tag ended up becoming the title of my layout.  I added the Candy Corn Puffy Alphabet Stickers to fill in some of the empty space at the bottom of the tag.  The larger pumpkin from the Halloween Puffy Stickers was just right to cover the ‘O’ in the title, and I also added the “good company” die cut from the October 2019 Kit.

Have you seen the Halloween Acrylic Treats? They are so yummy-looking and create dimension and texture to any project. I used them at the base of my photos to reiterate the candy theme. I scattered the small candy corn stickers from the Halloween Puffy Stickers around the acrylic candies.  These and the sentiments from the Thankful Stickers bring completion to my layout.  

Get crazy with colors on your Halloween projects! I did here and I think it works for this fun, Halloween page! I look forward to seeing you next month!
