Happy Halloween!

I wanted to share the mini album I made this week for my sister.

Monday night I scored 7 Martha Stewart Crafts Halloween punches on clearance at Michael's and they were my inspiration for the mini.

The screaming ghosts are my favorite punch:

Here is the front cover:

First inside page.  I used paper bags and a binding technique I saw at Following the Paper Trail.   I used the bat punch on this page.

Cracks punch on the second page:

Third page:

Fourth page:

I also made a tag for each pocket, they generally all look like this:

And open up with two spots for photos or journaling with the double edge spiderweb punch.

The back of each has some clip art that I enhanced - witch's cauldron with paint bubbles:

Prima downloadable with bling:

Ghost with distress ink:

And candy corn with glossy accents:

My favorite part of the whole album are ghost tags I made using my cricut with the googly eyes.

For the embellishments I used recollections bling and brads, celebrate it! ribbon, and making memories spook alley brads and rub-ons.
