HAPPY FALL-IDAYS: HALLOWEEN

Hello ‘Fetti Fans and welcome to the first annual HAPPY FALL-IDAYS!

What exactly is HAPPY FALL-IDAYS?

It’s an online showcase event where the Confetti Crew will be sharing multiple holiday projects (these go way beyond cards!) and providing a serious dose of Reverse Confetti and holiday inspiration!  The fall and winter holidays are upon us now, so we are making this a 3 day celebration of Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas!

As the graphic below would suggest, we are kicking off HAPPY FALL-IDAYS with HALLOWEEN today.  Just below the graphic is a list of all of the Confetti Crew members that are sharing their projects today.  Be sure to scroll past, as I have a little something to share with you, as well!

I love paper crafting.  I love memory keeping projects. I don’t love scrapbooking.

So, what’s a girl to do?

Create paper crafting projects that contain pictures, making them memory keeping projects.

Are you wondering what I am talking about?  (Don’t worry, sometimes nobody knows).

Here’s what I mean…

I created this triptych (geesh, it’s been a LONG time since I made one of these!) and embellished and added pictures of my lil’ ones from last year’s Halloween.  Nic was a vampire (hence the un-living look) and Ellie was a pirate.

The entire project measures 9″ x 5.5″, with folds on 3″ and 6″.

For both Nic & Ellie’s panels, I started with a black and white piece of patterned paper and added a green border with the DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts die.  From there, I layered a gray large wreath cut from the *new* WREATHS Confetti Cuts die set, and a tag (THANKS TAG Confetti Cuts) topped with a picture of each kid.  For embellishments, I added the bows atop the tag, the flag ended sentiments (both from TOO CUTE TO SPOOK) and 3 white enamel flat backs…

The center panel is 3 pumpkins cut from the PUMPKIN PATCH Confetti Cuts die set that are each covered in orange glitter.  Each of the pumpkins is popped up on a glue dot for some added dimension.

In short, this is what I call memory keeping…a fun project that I can display year after year that contains picture of a fun family time.

I’ll be on Periscope later today  (I’ll post time on IG)  going over this project, along with some of my other favorite un-scrapbooking projects, too.  See you then!
