Hey, everyone! Happy Saturday, and welcome to the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Trick or Treat Blog Hop. My amazing DT and I are sharing all sorts of fun and adorable Halloween projects with you today. We have a prize up for grabs and a little freebie just for you guys. We'll also be kicking off our next challenge. So, be sure to check out each and every project along the way today...you don't want to miss a THING!
For my project today, I decided to actually get a scrapbook layout done, since I am FOREVER behind on this task. I created a layout to show off some photos from last year's Trick or Treating. Here's my layout:
For the left side of the layout, I created a traditional scrapbook page. I designed everything in my Silhouette Studio Designer Edition software and then printed out and cut the components. I used so many files that I'll list those at the end. I love the way everything is so bright and fun, which is a great way to show off these photos of my daughters in their bright and fun Halloween costumes. All of the papers are digital, by the way. I filled my shapes with them in SSDE and then print and cut them. Here's a close up of a cluster of fun cutting files that I added beneath the main photo:
For the right side of the layout, I opted for a pocket scrapbooking page that holds 4x4 photos. I only had 7 more photos to show, so I filled in the extra spots with a journaling spot and a filler card. I designed both in Silhouette Studio using digital papers and my full color PPPR SVG files. I even added some stitching lines using the program. Here are some close ups of those cards:
I finished off the layout by tucking some candy borders in some of the pockets and scattering some random candy pieces around. I just stuck those on the outside of the pocket page using glue dots.
Here are all of the files I used to create my layout:
