Halloween Blog Hop!

Halloween Scrapbook Page Layout

‘Tis the season for tricks and treats and all things spooky! To celebrate, we’ve once again enlisted the creativity of some wildly talented CM Advisors to create lots of fun Halloween project ideas. They’ve each created a blog post featuring their ideas, and then will send you on to the next stop on the hop. First up is Sarah Fitzgerald’s post on her blog Click Write Share. She’ll then direct you on to the next stop on the hop – how fun!

After you’ve hopped through the blogs, stop back here and leave us a comment on which idea was your favorite. We’ll randomly choose one blog hopper who’s left a comment to receive a Halloween prize package shown below including the super sparkly Pumpkin Patch Album Cover plus the Trick or Treat Paper Pack and Stickers. We’ll even toss in a pack of White Pages and Protectors, too! We’ll choose our winner on Friday, October 23.

  1. I loved the border ideas, and the page layouts. Best is the little spiders made with the tag punch.

    1. There were so many great ideas. I like seeing the Spiders in white on the black web paper. The Halloween borders were awesome also. So many fun ideas and ways to use these great new products. Thank you ladies for sharing your awesome ideas.

  2. I love the spider, the picket fence & the Halloween Borders#2 on D. Brinsley’s blog .. great ideas using our tools I can’t wait to share!

  3. Awesome Borders on Diana’s blog -super easy. Candace had some adorable uses for the Shape Makers………..all blogs were fun! Thank you!

  4. Well, I thought for sure blog # 1 would be my favorite right off the “bat.” No pun intended… Then, I got to blog #2, then 3 & so on. With each one, I knew I couldn’t pick a favorite. But, I have to say, I always love seeing ideas that use the Border Maker System & Shape Maker for little spiders, etc & especially for making borders. Thanks for sharing all of these terrific ideas!

  5. I thought all of the blogs were fun and had cute ideas. My favorite was Julie’s layout #2. I thought it was great to see how she added a few things to the F2F pages and totally changed the look of them!

  6. I loved the gravestone idea. I plan to use it for a non-Halloween page I am working on. Many other great ideas too.

  7. I love these blog hops! So fun! It’s really hard to choose a favorite. I always love borders and new ways to use our tools. It was great to see how to adapt the F2F pages into Halloween pages! Loved it all.

  8. Best blog hop you’ve had! The first one had so many great page ideas and then wow do I want to get out all my makers. I loved the aliens though.

  9. That was awesome and so creative. There was something in each hop that I loved and will incorporate into my pages and cards to make them mine. For page layouts I loved #3 because it used all aspects of Halloween, left room for pictures and journaling and incorpated several tools. Great job on each hop!!!

  10. The spiders made from the tag shaper maker discussed by Sarah Fitzgerald’s in her layout #1 are my favorite. Very unique idea, which I see other bloggers have in their ideas too. Thanks for the fun blog hop.

    1. So many creative ladies. Thanks for all of your ideas. I liked the idea of the spiders, especially the one hanging from the goody bag but all of the ideas are great. Thanks for sharing.

      1. I love the border ideas, too. I hit “enter” before I finished by reply. I love all the ideas. Thanks CM for this blog. I hope you will do one for Christmas ideas, too.

  11. All of the blogs had awesome ideas!! My favorite was definitely Julie’s. Her ideas on transforming the Fall F2F pages looked SO good!

  12. All of the ideas are fabulous…but I think the borders are my favorite. I like to make borders ahead of time and these would be perfect! Thanks to all the bloggers for such great ideas!

  13. I liked the border ideas, but I LOVED the blog that showed how to transform the Fall In Fast2Fab album. She did a great job adding a few papers/embellishments to totally change the page. It shows just how versatile those albums are.

  14. I loved the gravestones with the new corner maker and all the borders on D. brinsley’s blog. What great fun. Thank you for setting this up!

  15. Stop #1 and stop #2 were my favorites – I thought the spider web paper was too busy for me but both those gals impressed me with the simplicity of incorporating the paper. Amazing inspiration!!

  16. I loved all of the ideas. I particularly liked Julie’s blog stop #2 with the Fast 2 Fab transformations as this helps me show my customers how they can use the Fast2Fab products. I also loved Diane’s borders. Thanks to everyone for the step by step directions.

  17. What a fun, fun ‘blog hop’. Loved Sarah spider, Lisa’s critters and Diana’s borders. Thanks so much for sharing all these super ways to use Creative Memories’ products.

  18. I loved the very first one – the two page spread by Sarah Fitzgerald. They were all very fun and creative, but this was my favorite! Thanks for sharing!

  19. I loved all the great ideas! Enjoyed the simple layouts of Sarah Fitzgerald and Lisa Graham. Loved the critters by Julie Tambrini for those creative days:) thanks for all the great ideas.

  20. I loved the borders on Diana Brinsley’s blog! Lots of great ideas on all the pages, especially the cute spiders, but her borders totally stood out! I love that she showed both vertical and horizontal options, as well.

  21. This was so fun! I loved all the ideas and the blogs (put me to shame!) and I plan on using some of them for my upcoming fall workshop – this weekend! I especially liked Lisa’s ideas but also loved all the embellishments on Julie and Candace’s pages as well. Thanks everyone for sharing your creativity and great ideas.

  22. Love all these ideas and will be referencing them often. I especially loved the borders. I also loved Lisa’s monsters.

  23. Loved them all – Hope I have lots of trick or treaters this year! Will have my camera ready to get pictures of them so I will have Halloween pics to scrapbook. My Grandkids are all grown up! I love Sarah’s blog – the cards & tags, the borders and Stef’s pdf download of instructions!!

  24. I love the Fall In pages turned Halloween! So cool :-) I also loved all of the Halloween borders. I hope I win :-) Crossing my fingers and toes…..

  25. So many great ideas! I love all the ideas for using cm tools to make fun new embellishments for my pages. I also like the border ideas. I can’t pick which one is better both are awesome!

  26. It was hard to pick a favorite, but I loved the Halloween borders. So cute. Great job ladies!!

  27. loved the Fall In pages that show how versatile our F2F pages can be. Favorites were the borders using the Fence border in so many creative ways, especially doubling it for a higher fence. But the spooky night eyes made with the adhesive jewels were the most clever.

  28. Loved the fence idea of doubling it and all the borders. Everyone did a great job to share new ideas and will use some at my October crop. Thanks to all for sharing as you got my creative ideas flowing again.

  29. I have always liked borders and Diana’s borders were so creative. However, I am so far behind in my albums that I’ve seriously been thinking of trying a Fast2Fab album. My favorite was Julie’s blog. I really liked her ideas of transforming a few Fall Fast2Fab pages into Halloween pages — simple but elegant. Can’t wait to start a Fast2Fab album! Great ideas and thanks to everyone for sharing and providing detailed instructions!

  30. I, too, loved each and every one of these artists work!! Sarah started me off with the spider embellishment! Then Scrappin’ Jpegs had more awesome embellishments and all made with CM tools! Lisa’s Workshop again had Awesome embellies! My fave, the cat! D. Brinsley’s Bat And Fence borders were over the top and who could resist Crop with Stef’s tags and cards? Woot woot and Frankie will be on my table soon! I absolutely LOVED Julie’s Creative Memories Blog and how she shows everyone how to ‘spook’ up a Fast2Fab album for Halloween! Fran’s page was so adorable with her spooky faces and pumpkin. Thank you, ladies, for all your inspiration!!!

  31. All the blogs are great , but I love the borders especially the fence with the gate hanging. Enjoyed very much thank you.

  32. I loved Diana’s border ideas especially the picket fence with opening gate! Very creative! Thanks for the blog hop! This was fun and I’m definitely going to check out more of these talented ladies’ blogs! :)

  33. loved the changes to the fast to you album pages….gives me great ideas for my vintage album to use it more productively. I really liked the critters and hope to be able to make some soon…the picket fence was my favorite the second time through….loved it

    1. What fun!! Every stop had such wonderful, creative ideas, but my favorites from each stop were: Candace’s cauldron and tombstones; all of Diana’s border ideas; Julie’s “Halloweening” of the Fall In F2F pages; Lisa’s bat and adorable monsters; and last, but certainly not least, Stefani’s ghost pop-up card. As soon as I finish on the computer I’m heading to my workspace to give some of these fabulous ideas a try. Thank you for this delightful Blog Hop.
