Halloween Projects with Pebbles' Thirty One

When my October Design Team package arrived from The Scrapbooking Studio I was excited to find a huge stash of Goodies that included Pebbles' newest Halloween line of papers-Thirty One, several black and white polka dot bags and a whole bunch of other awesome things. Check it out:
 I created a Halloween mini-album with the small bags, my Bind-it-All, and Pebbles' newest Halloween line of papers-Thirty One.The front cover has a photo overlay from the Thirty One line, it works here as a see-threw mat. I liked layering it with the papers and tags from the line as well and thought the dimension it added to the front was eye-catching.
  In order to create this embellishment, I cut a decorative straw in half, bound it together with twine, punched several flowers, and added the skull from the sticker sheet for the center. The flower is attached with pop dots to the straw.

 Double sided papers gave me a huge amount of diversity as I created the pages of the album, I punched more flowers and leaves for this page's embellies.

 American Craft Thickers in "Spooky" provided the perfect "Boo" title for this page.
 I wanted to create contrast between some of the black and white papers and the black and white bags, so I painted a few of the papers (Basil is above and Tiger's Eye is below) with Art Anthologies Dimensional Paint. I used two coats.
I also created a few layouts with the Thirty One line:
 In addition to the adorable stickers, photo overlays, tag and papers from Pebbles, I also used Tim Holtz's Alterations die Halloween Shadows.  I pop dotted two pictures using different thicknesses of pop dots for some dimension.
Here is the second layout. I again used a few of the overlays, some tags, and the Spooky American Craft Thickers for the "Aarrgh!"
The Scaredy Cat cartridge in the eClips die cutting machine cut the large black cat. I used green self-adhesive embellishments for the eyes

 Finally, I would like to share a few cards with you ....
 It was super fun using the eClips machine to create die cuts and a window card (below). The finished size of the window card is 4.75x4.75. I pop dotted the frame with small pop dots for extra dimension.

The stickers that accompany the Thirty One line are very cute! I used the witch hat on the die cut crow.

 The final card has a 4x6 photo overlay as part of the front decoration. Layered below the overlay is a tag, and on top of the overlay is a sticker with key, die cut candelabra, and skull sticker with diamond eyes.
