Haunted Halloween Blog Hop

Welcome to our blog! If you're here for the Haunted Halloween Blog Hop you're in the right place! There are 22 blogs participating in the hop today. To start at the beginning click HERE at Janice's site and follow the blog trail. You should have arrived from Lauren's blog.

I wanted to make a video, but my video camera decided to act up. Anyway, for my project I decided to do a very simple Mini Tag Album. The papers used are from the Midnight Spell pack. Most of the embellishments are from Recollections. The others are things that I had from other projects. The ribbon is from Oriental Trading. :)


I made the album using the Cricut Expression. I used Tags, Bags, Boxes & more. The album features paper by DCWV Midnight Spell paper. I have glittered flowers with a small rhinestone in the center. The flourish and the Happy Halloween sentiment is from Recollections. I also added some ribbons tied to two binder rings.

Here is a photo of the next two pages.

On this page there I have a small envelope which holds a smaller tag that could be used for a journal.

This page I used the Oct. 31 cartridge to cut out the pumpkin face. The candy corn are small borders from K & Co.

The pumpkin opens up to reveal space for either photos or journaling.

A look at the next two pages.

This page looks like a witch is stuck under the card.

When you open the card it has space for photos or journaling.

This page has a space for a photo. It has a cute pumpkin that has spilled its candy.

A look at the next two pages.

This page has another envelope and tag for journaling.

A spooky cat watches over this page. There is space for a small photo and another envelope and tag for journaling.

The next two pages.

Glittery candy corn are along the side.

Space for photos and journaling.

A ghost watches over this page which features a photo area and another envelope and tag.

This page has a large area for a photo. The corners of the photo mat have a skull, candy corn, star, and frog.

Here is another photo mat area which was cut from the October 31 cartridge. There is also a spider hanging from a web.

This opens up to reveal the space for the photos or journaling.

The end.

I hope that my project has inspired you to make something for yourself or for a friend.
