Simply Spooky!

Simply Spooky!

Hello lovely friends it’s Kylie with you again today. I have been setting up some more ‘Spooky’ goodness in my A5, Grape planner lately and having fun creating with the Happy Halloween Simple Set.

 If you saw my blog post earlier in the month you would have seen how I was using my Persimmon planner with the Vintage Halloween collection, for my everyday planning. Here is my blog post if you would like to see it again. Since I already had my day to day planning covered I decided to use my Grape planner as a flip “mood and inspiration” board, to house some memory keeping and ideas for planning a perfect Halloween.

The Happy Halloween collection is just so cute……..

The opening of my planner showcases a dashboard I created from the gorgeous printed papers, as well as some very full pockets of spooky cuteness. As always I loved the 3x4 & 4x6 elements sheet of paper for cutting apart the cute cards.

I added a couple of these element cards to my pockets, purely for cute factor!

I also used 3 x 4 element on my dashboard.The ‘Give me all the Candy’ was a definite favourite! For colour, I have also layered some contrasting papers in behind. The spider web was cut with a die from my stash which acted as a shadow behind my stickers.

The back of my dashboard was all about Pumpkins! More layering of papers and finished with another 3 x 4 element.

I added one of the 3 x 4 / 4 x 6 pocket pages to my planner. This was easy to do by covering the existing holes with washi tape and re-punching the holes to fit my planner with my Carpe Diem hole punch. The “Trick or Treat” phrase on the back, I cut with my Silhouette Cameo.It was a file I had found via the Silhouette store some time ago.

I printed some smaller sized photos to add to my pages for memory keeping, tying in lots of the fun stickers to frame them.With the beautiful papers I tore some strips to act as a border to the top of my page as well as through the centre, which gave a nice overall texture to my pages.

For my inspiration pages, again I printed my photos smaller to fit the page. I have created my own lettering by using some Alpha dies with the papers. As well as adding some of the 3 x 4 elements to my pages I have cut some of my favourites out and punched them so they fit onto my rings as a little tip in for my planner.By adding a free hand drawn border with a fine tip black pen helps them to stand out even more.

Along the punched side of my pages I have used some washi tape.Not only does this add colour to your pages but it serves a practical purpose by making the holes extra sturdy.

Here is another extra dashboard I created, including one of the 4 x 6 elements. Overall I love the fun vibe the Happy Halloween collection has given my planner.

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you have some fun creating your own faBOOlous spread in your planner for Halloween.

Until next time,
