A Cute & Whimsical Halloween Layout!

Happy Halloween PP fans! It’s Elsie here and since it’s Halloween today, I couldn’t resist making a cute and spooky layout to celebrate. If you don’t have any Halloween supplies, fear not! For this layout, I primarily used papers from the Whimsical collection and dipped into a few other Pink Paislee collections. Let me talk you through everything!

elsie_oct31_halloween_layout1Firstly I started with my background. I used one of my favourite papers from Whimsical (paper 08), because the ombre purple pattern is the perfect paper to use to create a ‘spooky’ night sky!

I also dug out the stamp set from Turn The Page and used the small open star stamp to heat emboss some white stars all over the background. I love how simple this was to do, but it creates such a lovely and magical effect.

elsie_oct31_halloween_layout3To frame the layout, I fussy-cut some of the gorgeous Whimsical florals from papers 03 and 14. Not only does clustering the flowers around the layout look pretty, it helps bring the page together.

elsie_oct31_halloween_layout5Since I didn’t use a Halloween collection, I used my die-cutting machine to create my own die-cuts. I cut some bats and a witch flying on a broom from black cardstock, so they looked like silhouettes against my night sky background.

elsie_oct31_halloween_layout6To create my title, I used a mix of alphas from Pick-Me-Up. I overlapped the chipboard letters to spell out ‘spook’, and for the first part of the title I used a black paint pen to colour the mini navy foam alphas, so they would match the rest of the layout.

elsie_oct31_halloween_layout2Thanks for stopping by today, and I hope you all have a spooktacular Halloween!
