10 Halloween Scrapbook Layout Ideas & Tips Video

Up Close Halloween Layout Ideas
Tip Number 1: If you don't have Halloween Supplies pull out some neutral pieces in the right colors from your stash.  This entire layout has nothing "Halloween themed" on it aside from the cut file I used for the title. The rest is pulled from Purples, Oranges, and Blacks in my Stash.

Tip Number 2: Personalize a collection with cut files, punches, stamps or metal dies.  You can keep a layout from looking like everybody else's by personalizing it with your tools.  You can find tons of fun metal dies here and stamps here.

Tip Number 3: If you are low on your supplies - use a clear Halloween base for your layout and then build it up with neutral pieces.  My base page is here is clearly for Halloween - the rest makes it even better!

Tip Number 4: Base the whole layout on the colors in the costume not Halloween Colors.  For this layout I went with that turquoise color that you can see in his monster costume and just added Halloween embellishments that played up the theme.

Tip Number 5: Multiphoto layouts are so common for Halloween - add small embellishments on multi-photo layouts so that the photos are the star.

Tip Number 6: Bail on Halloween completely and do the whole layout based on their costume.  Oftentimes the costume has nothing to do with Halloween and is just a fun theme to work with.

Tip Number 7: Play with Words for your Title - think catchy phrases that don't have anything to do with Halloween.  Part of why I love this layout is because the title is something we say all the time "Something Stinks."

Tip Number 8: Much like the last tip but on this one I say bail on Halloween and focus on Autumn. This works especially well for playing down the spookiness of Halloween.  

Tip Number 9: Focus on the shapes of Halloween like I did here mimicking the moon.  Think pumpkins, crescents, triangles for candy corn...the options are endless!

Tip Number 10: Shape your pictures!  As you can see here I went with the ideas of eyeballs and shaped my pictures to match that.
