Pirate Halloween - I Treasure You

Thursday, October 23, 2014


I have a secret. I have a slight obsession with Halloween scrapbooking paper. It's ironic, because I've never actually MADE a Halloween page until now. I've just been collecting for... a while. Then, I bought some vellum die cuts from the Maggie Holmes "Open Book" collection and was totally inspired by a piece that said "I treasure you". Perfect title for my page!!


This photo is from the first Halloween that Joe and I were together. He dressed up as Captain Jack Sparrow and I was his pirate wench. I had fun clustering lots of embellishments on one side of the photo.


Basic Grey's "Persimmon" line is one of my favorite fall lines (ever!) but I used up all my 12x12 papers making my fall wreath last year. I used 2 papers from the 6x6 pad and some embellishments from the collection. My background paper is from American Craft's Lucky Charm and the plaid 8x8 is from October Afternoon's Witch Hazel.


I used another Starting Point from Shimelle to help decide how to lay out my page. I prefer to use a sketch or a starting point to get me started, then spend my time mixing and matching paper and embellishments to complete the layout.


I used pop dots on the back of this stamped vellum banner to add more dimension to the page.


This gold polka dot tag and "my heart" tab is from Paislee Press's Solstice line. Gorgeous!


I love reading each and every comment! Be sure to keep up with me on Instagram, Pinterest, and Facebook!

    1. Thanks, Elise! I'm glad I finally got around to doing this. I'm proud of myself for using Persimmon last year, but dang if I don't wish I still had some!
