I will be sharing today's Halloween make on Leigh's page...Day 1


This year I thought I would make a Halloween scrapbook, hoping to share a number of pages with you over the month...

This is the next page:

The first layer is a lilac paper from my stash followed by a paper from The Other Side by Craft Box.
I then added the Sissix clock die cut in black with silver fingers, and a moon (triple stamped using stamps from Kitchen Sink and distress ink). The witch on the moon is a piece of confetti - the other two witches are die cut in silver.

Next I added the tags:

The technique on this first tag is Masking and Stamping with a blended background.


  1. Arrange masking film shapes onto the tag
  2. Make a blended background over the masks.
  3. Remove the masks and stamp over them with Archival Ink.
  4. Distress the edges by  blending in a dark colour.

The technique on my second tag is Custom Stamp Pad technique


  1. I made a custom stamp pad using a pad made of folded baby wipes with drips of reinker to add colour.
  2. Using a Kaisercraft stamp, I inked up the stamp and stamped it onto card.
  3. I die cut the tag and added Distress Ink around the edges.
  4. All the tags had a starry ribbon attached.

I then added the sentiment, diecut to a tag shape, distressed with Victorian Velvet distress ink and with a scrap of starry ribbon. 

I used real stamps on both of the tags here so I will link this page to 
Lost Coast Portal 31 Days of Halloween Challenge
