Layout – Owloween


The owl stamp from Sweet Stamp Shop was just too cute not to use.  It went perfect with some Halloween pictures of my daughter that need to be Scrapbooked.  This was a super quick layout, using scraps, ribbon and a stamp.

I layered all my papers into my DCWV linen looking paper and then I layered on my ribbons.  I then hand cut a tree branch from a scrap, doodled some wood grain and attached it with foam squares to give it some dimension.  I then stamped the owl on 4 different papers and cut out the desired colors to color in my owl.

I used May Arts ribbons, SK01, 351-17, QN09, 389-18-33 and BY16

You also don’t have to use traditional Halloween colors to create a Halloween Layout, sometimes it is so much fun to create outside the box.

Thank you so much for looking at my project today, I would love to see what you come up with.  Leave a link and I will check it out.

    I',m not a big scrapbooker, but love this layout.  The ribbons used are perfect.  I'd like to get my hands on some to use on cards.  The paper piecing on the owl is a super cute idea.  Cute kid, too.  😉
