Clear Scraps + DCWV Blog Hop: Halloween 2013

Hello and Happy Monday!  Today is Day 4 of the Clear Scraps and DCWV Blog Hop.  I was lucky to receive DCWV's Halloween line Spookytime to work with (my favorite holiday!)  It's never too late to scrapbook this year's Halloween photos so I decided to create a mini album with Clear Scraps 6x6 Tab Album.  This album is the perfect size to document any event or favorite photos! 
For my inside cover, I used a fun clear photo frame from Pebbles' Thirty One line and added my journaling, as well as a cute pennant punched from one of the Spookytime patterns.
I let my photo cover the bottom half of my page and added patterned paper to the top portion.  I finished by adding a tag for journaling, as well as washi tape, and flair from {a flair for buttons}.
 On this page, I used a Clearly Accent Embellishment Dress Form and colored it with Ranger Alcohol Ink in Slate. I then covered the bottom half of the "dress" with patterned paper. I finished by adding black/white chevron ribbon from Maya Road, as well as a pin from Tim Holtz.

I used a fun subway style cut file from my Silhouette and adhered it to my background paper. I then added some washi tape as well as fun Halloween flair from {a flair for buttons}. 
For this page, I simply punched out circles with a punch and added a different patterned behind. After adhering my photo, I added different size sequins as well as washi tape.

Another fun cut file from Silhouette!  I also added a doily  as well as paint splatters to accent.
I love using chipboard photo frames like this one from Crate Paper's The Pier collection. I accented with bakers twine and color resist pennants (Heidi Swapp).  I finished by creating a fun fabric ribbon flower with a Teresa Collins' Designs decorative brad in the middle.

Here's a close up of my fabric flower....instead of starting from the center of the circle, I began on the outside edge. Using my hot glue gun, I created folds until I reached the center of the circle. 

Here, I took a Ranger manila tag and covered with patterned paper and washi tape. I used this for my journaling (which I did on my electric typewriter).

For my last page, I incorporated a cute Halloween tag from Chic Tags to go under my photo.
