Ready for Spooky? Ready for Halloween? I don't know about you, but Halloween is one holiday that I am definitely behind in scrapping. This week's make-and-take is this clever little mini book to help you journal all your Halloween memories. The layout is all Basic Grey. All the paper you need is at Scrapbooks-Plus except for the purple "screech" paper. For that we had to substitute cardstock (although the paper should be in next week). Also the witch sticker on the right page will be available next week when we feature a Halloween design using the Eerie Sticker elements. (So save the spot on your layout and come by next week for a "BOO" experience).

Correction - Pumpkin make-and-take and Basic Grey Layout is today!

There was a problem with the inventory needed for Misty's Make and Take layout, so TODAY, October 7, is the Basic Grey layout featured at Scrapbooks-Plus. So head on over today while they last!

Indian Summer and Pumpkins

Don't use all of those Indian Summer Stickers elements up just yet! If you came by Scrapbooks-Plus and did the Wednesday make and take, you most likely bought those Sticker Elements from Basic Grey's Indian Summer line. (If they were sold out when you got there, don't worry - there will be more in stock just in time for this next make and take).

Basic Grey has published these great one-page layout instructions featuring all of their newest papers. I have created a make-and-take element featured on a second page that I have designed to match. This Wednesday Misty has this really cute "Kiss the Cook" layout planned for our Wednesday Make and Take crowd. Next week on October 14, you'll find a Pumpkin element with a pumpkin layout to match! The make-and-take is a chipboard cut pumpkin (Accu-cut) that is hand-rubbed with gold wax (I did the rubbing!). You'll cover the element with Martha Stewart Fire Opal Glitter and top the stem with a burgundy organza bow. (and for those like Lydia who don't like glitter in her books, skip the glitter - the golden waxed chipboard will work beautifully without it!). The rest of the layout can be made right in the store - you'll just need some brown ink to color those to spell the title.
So save those element stickers - or pick up some more - and enjoy your Indian Summer in the pumpkin patch!
