Let Your Creativity Creep In With This Halloween Scrapbook Layout

There are many great occasions throughout the calendar year, but Halloween continues to hold a festive (and fun!) place in the hearts of many. In fact, blog contributor Sachiyo Omitsu adores Halloween, and she wanted to bring this October festivity to life with a Halloween scrapbook layout — check it out!

Sachiyo’s Inspiration

Halloween is one of the things I like most about American culture. All the spooky and creative decorations, Halloween parades and trick-or-treating is awesome, but my absolute favorite part of Halloween is carving pumpkins with our friends. Kids enjoy scooping out the pumpkin guts, dads carve jack-o’-lanterns and moms enjoy chatting over a glass of wine — what’s not to love? We don’t know how Halloween will look like this year due to the pandemic, but we do know that we will be carving our jack-o’-lanterns and make spook-tacular memories with our kids!

To create this layout you will need:

Step 1: Use a piece of Black Cardstock as the base.

Step 2: Fold the teal patterned paper in half to make a triangle. Fold the triangle along the 60-degree line of the 13×13 Custom Cutting System Mat. Mark both sides of the folded triangle at 1″ increment up to 6″, as shown.

Step 3: Line up the Jumbo Circle Custom Cutting System Pattern with the marks, then cut with the Green Blade and then the Red Blade. Use the All-Purpose Scissors to cut if the blade doesn’t cut all the way.

Step 4: Adhere the pieces to the base, facing the orange patterned side up. Skip the narrow strips to make a spiderweb.

Step 5: Cut three strips of Black Cardstock to measure 1/8″ x 12″. Adhere to the base.

Step 6: Adhere stickers and laser cut borders, using Foam Squares on some for added dimension.

  1. This spiderweb is super cute, but I feel like I need a video or a couple more pictures between steps 2-4 to really understand how to do it!

  2. just know when you do this, Sachiyocm is using the 12×12 mat that has angle on it from the left corner. The 13×13 mat has angles differently. If you do this,with the 13×13 mat, put the center of the triangle fold on the 3″ mark, that is at the end of the 60* angle line, and then fold.
