Halloween has to be my favorite holiday! When I was little it was the only night of the year that we were allowed to roam the neighborhood in the dark. I loved choosing my costume and going door to door collecting treats! Talk about a kid's dream! Now that I still get to stay up late, you’ll find me sitting on the porch handing out treats and trying to guess who is behind the masks and costumes.
The new Simple Stories Simple Vintage Halloween captures all the magic of a crisp Halloween night. You’ll love the fun mix of vintage images including black cats, carved jack-o-lanterns, and some of the cutest witches ever!
The color scheme is traditional orange and black with fun prints including plaid, dots, and newsprint; as well as stars, stripes, and even spiderwebs!
This collection includes all the extras too.. pattern paper, solid basics papers, chipboard, die cuts, stickers, enamel dots, washi, decorative brads, and more.
I’m always impressed with the details Simple Stories adds to all their collections. Did you notice the pumpkin print on the girl’s skirt above? How about the faux stitching on the header?
I always start with pattern paper and top it with cut-apart journaling cards and elements to build layers. Adding sentiments and images over the foundations builds the layers and creates focal points for your cards.
I always save the “sprinkles” for last. Shiny enamel dots and decorative brads are the eye candy that makes you come in for a closer look so you can feast on all the crafty goodness!
I can’t wait to send these cards to family and friends! I know they’re going to love them!
