Quick and Easy | Halloween Pooh Bear Scrapbooking 12x12 Layout Idea

This ia great beginners layout for someone who is just learning to do scrapbooking or for someone who likes quick and easy pages. This layout was made a few months ago by my daughter and it features my little grand daughter in her Monarch Butterfly Costume.

She did the layout in the 12x12 format and the background is a simple sheet of white cardstock. Using wavy edge scissors, she cut out a strip that measures 1" wide by 12" long and ran that at the top of her page to add interest. She used a Trick or Treat page title at the top and centered it on her black cardstock strip.

I hand drew some black bats and cut them out and she used 2 of those on her layout. We used a glow in the dark gel pen and gave them glowing orange eyes. She used one photo in the layout and cropped it down to the size she wanted. She mounted it onto black and orange cardstock leaving an 1/8" edge and rounded all of the corners. She used my Cricut machine to cut out her BOO letters from orange cardstock. She also used my Cricut to cut out a dark green leaf and she used that as her exclaimation point along with a dark green circle that use obtained by using a hole punch.

I gave my little grand daughter a Halloween card that featured Winnie The Pooh so we cut him out and sprayed him with archival mist. She then mounted it to her page on the right side. She used a ghost cardstock sticker in the bottom right corner.

Happy Scrapbooking!
