We have more to show off today! This time the Pocket Chicks are using the new Oct. 31 collection. Filled with enchanting patterns and a ghoulish color palette, this product line is a must for all of your spooky projects. Take a look ... if you dare.
Hocus Pocus by Suzzane Sergi
Suzzane says, "Oct. 31 has the traditional Halloween Colors we all love, with touches of purple throughout! This collection has beautiful distressed images, and you will find it filled with witches, cats, and spooky treats! One of my favorite elements of Fancy's collections, are the chipboard elements. They are fantastic to stand alone, or add some fun, by layering them! You can also take them a step further, by adding a button, or two! This paper collection was perfect for documenting my favorite Halloween witch on Halloween's Eve. What is Halloween, without a bat, or two to capture the eeriness of the season! One added tip. the filter paper embellishments are perfect for creating flowers, but they also make a great backdrop as patterned paper! On this page, I cut a circle on the right hand side of the page, and layered one of the OCT. 31 paper filters underneath, to give my page more spooky texture!"
Oct. 31 by Amy Peterman
I was totally geeked when I saw this collection for the first time. I LOVE it's vintage vibe and that TEAL! Swoon! These papers and embellishments (the chipboard elements, printed filter paper embellishments and rub-ons - LOVE!) were perfect match for these photos of my daughter, is her peacock costume.
Boo! by Guiseppa Gubler
Guiseppa says, "I really love the vintage feel of this new Halloween collection, Oct 31. The colors are classic Halloween colors, but a tad softer. I really needed to add to my stash of cards so I created this fun card. I am sure there are many more projects to come using Oct 31."
Bump in the Night by Jen Martakis
Jen says, "I really enjoyed playing with the new Oct 31 line. I love the fabulous patterns. I think that the spiderweb Flocked Transparency is my favorite piece of the entire collection. For this layout, I layered it on top of the Night patterned paper. I think it really pops!"
Halloween 2010 by Vicki Chrisman
Vicki explains, "The mix of colors on this line is just so perfect! I had these photos from Halloween that I had been wanting to scrap, and the minute I saw this line, I was pulling them out to use. It was hard for him to decide if he wanted to be batman or a pirate ... why not both? LOL! I have always loved the way the Fancy Pants buttons can be used on either side. This time I used them so that the center inset could be used for my date. I did this by first printed off the numbers, then punching them out to add them to the centers of the buttons."
Pumpkins by Leah Farqharson
Leah says, "One of our family's favorite traditions in Autumn is going to pick out our pumpkins—and then carving them as a family! You can't see it in the photo, but I have this beautiful, huge, sage green satin witches hat—complete with netting and black feathers that I pull out every time we're planning fun Halloween activities! This was the first year that our oldest actually did a bit of the carving himself! The simple grid layout of the tic-tac-toe board was fun to fill with photos and embellishments without letting the layout look cluttered! "
Spooky by Trish Harwick
Trish explains, "I typically have a hard time using Halloween-themed papers to create my Halloween layouts because the color schemes are so limited; however, I was so happy to see the October 31st collection incorporated turquoise, yellow and green into the mix! I also thought the chipboard elements incorporated a number of not-so-typical Halloween objects, including a label, witches hat and words perfect for a simple title!"
Queen of the Night Patch by Pamela Young
Pamela says, "I've been really into circles lately so I added a bunch to my layout. Love this cute line! Did you notice the hat on top of my daughter's head? Love it!"
