We all know you don't need a themed collection to scrapbook a themed layout, but sometimes a themed layout actually requires a non-themed collection. For example....my kids on Halloween....they NEVER get dressed up in scary costumes! They always pick the cutesy costumes that consist of non-Halloween colors. Rarely do I get a Halloween picture with the typical black, orange or purple anywhere to be found. What's a scrapbooking, Halloween loving Mom to do? Piece together a Halloween layout from other fabulous Simple Stories collections of course:
I used bits from Harvest Lane and Take A Hike to piece together a non traditional Halloween layout. I cut some little pumpkin shapes with my Cameo and machine stitched around everything for an applique look.
I used the old roll a strip of paper around the pencil trick:
I hope you will consider piecing together some fun Simple Stories for your Halloween layouts this year!
