Halloween Mini Album

I recently made 2 mini Halloween albums, one for each of my grandchildren.  These were sooooo much fun to make.  I found the chipboard albums in the dollar bin at Michales and loaded up on them.  There are many cricut cuts on this project, most from Happy Hauntings and Mini Monsters.  I also used lots of embellishments found in my stash of goodies.  I am still cleaning up glitter in my craft room from all the fun I had adding glitter to anything that didn't move.  Also got carried away with Glossy that stuff!

*Cover - The cute little pumpkin on the cover is cut from Celebrate With Flourish.  I used a lot of glitter and Glossy Accents on this little guy.  The stamp is from the dollar bin at Michaels.

*Page 1 and 2 - The Witches Hat is from Mini Monsters.  I used lots of glitter, then covered that with Glossy Accents. I love, love, love the effect that gives!  The second page is ready to slip in a photo. I used ribbon and gems to accent this page.

*Page 3 and 4 - The spider web is actually a piece of scrapbook paper from my stash.  I believe the spider is from Doodlecharms....he is covered in black flock and I added google eyes.  I think he is adorable!  Page 4 has ribbon and a sucker cut from Mini Monsters covered in Glossy Accents.

Pages 5 and 6 - Page 5 is ready to add a photo.  I used candy corn brads on the corners.  The "little monster" on the next page is cut from Mini Monsters.  I used lots of glitter and Glossy Accents on him. 

*Pages 7and 8 - Page 7 is photo ready with a spooky pumpkin cut from Happy Haunting...he has lots of glitter and Glossy Accents also.  The web from page 8 was just a strip of black paper and I used a punch from EK to create the spider web.  And right now, I cannot remember which cartridge I used to cut the "trick or treat" sentiment....uuuuggh...I hate when that happens!

*Back Cover - I used an old Sizzix die for the picket fence and really inked it up to make it look old.  The pumpkins were some brads that I have had for years.  I cut the moon from George and also inked it up a bit.  The bat, I believe, is from Everyday Paper Dolls?...not sure on that one.  My picture doesn't do him justice, the Glossy Accents caused a glare, but he has cute purple brads for eyes and lots of glitter!

The final touch was tying orange, lime green and black sparkly ribbons on the ring.  Now I just need to add pictures of my cute little trick or treaters and I'm done...thanks for looking!
