Halloween “Witches Boot” Album Using Carta Bella Halloween Market

Hello crafty friends! This week I am excited to share with you the Halloween “mini” album that I have created this week as my design team project for Fotobella. I used Carta Bella’s Halloween Market collection for this project. Here is what I came up with.

Part 1 Halloween Witch’s Boot Album

I had this chipboard album in my craft hoard. I started by painting the edges with Apple Barrel Black Acrylic Paint. Then adhered each album piece directly onto the 12 X 12 pattern paper from the collection. Then went over it with a brayer spreading the glue along the entire page.

Secondly, I used a Tim Holtz Retractable Craft Knife around the paper. I did find this technique to be a little difficult. So I changed what I was doing & began to trace the chipboard page onto the 12 X 12 pattern paper. Then cut along the inside of the line that I traced.

I then finished tracing all of the pages, I adhered them onto the chipboard album using Helmar Tacky Glue. Again using the brayer to spread the glue on my pages. Then I adhered the coordinating Halloween card stock from Bo Bunny Wonderfully Wicked 12 x 12 card stock pack. This coordinating card stock was perfect for this collection.

I then took my We R Memory Keepers Crop-a-dile and punched out the holes on the pages where the binder rings and “boot laces” on this album belong. When this was done, I then finished adhering the rest of the pattern papers onto the chipboard pages. Once I had all of the pages adhered I then inked the edges using the Tim Holtz Distress Black Soot Ink.

Part II

Now the real fun began! I cut some ivory card stock into 2 1/4 X 3.5 pieces, this will be photo mats. I then also cut some orange glitter specialty paper, as well as black specialty card stock to go on bottom of the card stock I cut for the photo mats. Then adhered them to all five pages mean while altering card stock on every other page.

On the cover page, I added the flower cluster using the beautiful Bo Bunny Harvest Orange Dahlia flower pack. I also had some small black glitter/ black matte flower mix in my stash, used them on the cover page where the “boot laces” would originally go. I added one of the collection ephemera pieces on the front page.

On the rest of the pages, I altered out black & orange ribbons where the boot laces would be and the black/glitter flowers on the other pages. As I mentioned before I added the photo mats one some pages and ephemera on the other pages. As you can see, I did some stamping on pages using the stamps from Carta Bella Toil and Trouble set.

This is was such an fun and easy Halloween project to create. I love creating mini albums and these ones that are themed or variety shaped, make it that much more fun. I hope that you have gotten inspired to create something similar. I’m sure you can find different shaped chipboard albums online. I will be back next week with another project, until then , Diane is posting this month along with me this month. Until next week, be safe everyone!! XOXO, Jeanne
