Hello Simple Stories friends!
Marcia here today. I hope you all had a spooktacular Halloween! Did you get some great photos of your little monsters? The Simple Stories Simple Vintage Halloween collection is perfect for those Halloween photos ... but it can also be used to document your Day of the Dead celebrations too. My little nephew got his face painted for the occasion and I thought I would scrap it with a big sugar skull from the Silhouette store. I backed the sugar skull digital cut file with lots of different pattern papers from the Vintage Halloween collection.
One of the things I love about this collection is the layering of elements on the stickers and pattern papers. It makes it easy to scrap, but it looks like you spent hours. You can see buttons, doilies, and brads ... but on a sticker or on paper, they add no bulk to your layout.
I used the Spooky Sweet die cut for my title, and layered lots more bits and pieces die cuts, chipboard, and stickers around it. This collection has some awesome washi tape. You can see it near the top and bottom of my layout. I think the one with the pumpkin faces is my favorite.
Here is a closer look at the sugar skull...
Thanks so much for stopping by today and Happy Day of the Dead.
