acrylic Halloween album

Yes, I made another Halloween album. I love, love Halloween. It is the day I was married and love everything and anything about it. The candy (my favorite), the costumes, the festivities and most of all my Anniversary.

This album is acrylic. I did use alot of embellishments as usual and love the way it came out. Even though it has alot and I mean alot of embellishments I still managed to include lots of matts for pictures. Alot of the matts are 4 x 5.

Here is the mini.

 Love all the charms. I have had a blast learning from Marlene. You can see her amazing work at: http://www.uniquelyella.blogspot.com/. I included a bottle with green glitter, a spooky sign, candy corn, pumpkin and just some dangling beads.
 This is my front cover. I used lots of bling and some acrylic flowers I found on ebay. Super cheap, 50 for $2.00. The pumpkin is felt and so are the witches shoes and hat from Joanns and Michaels. The face is a rub on. Super cute. The title is from Target. I bought it last year from the $1 section
 This page has a ghost that actually glows in the dark. Super cute from Michaels. I layered 3 flowers on a black one and put some bling. The page on the right has 3 tags. The tags are tucked behind a paper I cut out and then embellished with lots of pumpkins and flowers. The pom pom trim is also from Joanns.
 Here I have 2 tags that I stamped on. The Happy Halloween is from Michaels. I folded over the black sheet of cardstock and tore some of it and the pieces not torn I made some stitching marks with my white gel pen.
 This idea I got from Youtube: pinkaboo6691. She is amazing. Her minis were definitely my inspiration. I used soda can caps, glued them down with my hot glue gun and braided it with some satin lime green ribbon. I placed to tags behind the ribbon, but there is space for atleast 3 or 4 more tags. I did bend the soda caps a little to make room for more tags. The flowers on the bottom are to hold the tags from falling through. Some of the flowers I glimmer misted.
 This is one of my favorite pages. I made a folder that opens up and down. It came out super cute. The skeletons are from Michaels, I stickled them with red and then put glossy accents on top.
 This is the inside of the folder.
 This is another folder for photos. It has for 5 photos.
 Folder opened.
 The Haunted house is from a sheet of paper I cut it out and glued it on the bottom of my page. I put some ghost coming out of the windows and door. I put glossy accent on the windows and the swirl on the left side. I finished it off with some pumpkins and flowers. Behind the house are 2 full size matts.
 This page has alot going on. I cut the calderone and the ghost using my cricut. I put glossy accent on the calderone and then painted some green spots to make it seem as if the potion was dripping out, I then stickled it and put more glossy accents on top. The little pompom balls are from joanns dollar section. I used alot of bling. Some of the bling I connected to make bubbles. There are 2 tags tucked behind. There is space for a atleast 3 more tags since I popped up the calderone.

This last page was super fun to make. I cut the pocket using the cricut. I placed 3 tags inside the pocket. The flower is made with dryer sheets. I glimmer misted it and place a pebble on top with a witch behind it. The pebbles are super fun to make. I used black bling and a lace trim that I bought at Yeya's store, http://www.2creativechics.blogspot.com/.

I really like the way this album came out. Super cute and fun to make. Hope I have inspired you to make your own.

Each mini album you make is better than the one before and that is not easy to do! Your style is really fabulous with all the details and embellishments yet you have left lots of room for photos and journaling. Love the little bottle of green glitter with the beaded charm. Happy Haunting dear...
