Halloween Mini Album!

Happy Monday to you!  This is Liz from Liz's Paper Loft, I'm over the "Halloween Moon" to have been asked to be a Guest Designer here all week!  Thank you Joy and Melanie, this is beyond COOL!
 
Of course I had to come up with some fun projects this week, I hope you think they are too!  For today's project  I wanted to create a fun Halloween Mini Album!  I don't make them very often, but I think that's about to change...this was so much fun to make!
To create my album pages, I used cereal boxes.  I love the idea of up cycling!


I stitched a bit on the cover and popped up the scary cat!

If you didn't know, I tend to think that my projects aren't complete without a bit of glitter!  So I glittered the ghost! :)

After cutting the banner, I stamped it with the "boo" and more glitter on this ghost! :)
Yes, the skull is glittered! lol

The black frame was embossed with Swiss Dot Cuttlebug folder

 
I used a stamp to create the "pattern" paper too.

 
Lastly I added ribbon on the ring for some added fun!

I think this week calls for a GIVEAWAY!  How about a Limited Edition Metallic Hemp!  All you have to do is leave a comment here and on my blog with your contact info and I'll pick one winner on Saturday, October 20th and announce it on my blog!
 
 
Enjoy!

I love using cereal boxes for fast chipboard. I've used it for party supplies and cards but still worry about using it for scrapbooking. How can you tell if something is safe as far as acid free?
