Halloween Scrapbook Layouts to Inspire Your October Daily Album

Halloween scrapbook page layout ideas.

A few years back I got bitten by the scrapbooking bug.  Each time I say this to someone they give me a bit of side eye.  I have to assure them that scrapbooking has come a long way and my version is often not what you typically think of.  I prefer more of a junk journal, Smashbook, art journal style – but I have been known to fill a few Project Life pages in my day.  Especially when it comes to Halloween.

Ideas for Halloween scrapbook pages.

 

I spend so much time decorating, crafting, baking and preparing for Halloween and my annual Halloween party I end up with TONS of photographs.  What to do with all these pictures?  I know, make a Halloween themed scrapbook.

My Halloween scrapbook allows me to revisit my favorite holiday anytime of the year.  I keep all my Halloween scrapbooking papers, tapes, stickers and embellishments separate from my traditional stash.  When I bust out these two suitcases I know exactly what is inside and it instantly puts me in the mood to make a Halloween themed layout.  Even if it is July.

I typically don’t concern myself with keeping the same party or same year on the same page.  I like to do pages by theme or colors.  You can see the pictures above are of the sensory bin I set out each year.  Kids, rice and plastic snakes are a winning combination.  Other themes might include witches, owls or super hero costumes.  I think people get stifled by Project Life when they get too up-tight about the sequence and dates.

I like using Project Life style page protectors because you can think of each square as a mini page.  I combine paper and embellishments from various companies as well as cell phone photos and those I have professionally taken.

Some people do December Daily, I do October Daily.  Well ok I do December Daily too.  I rationalize spending my retirement on stickers by telling myself that my kids enjoy looking through these scrapbooks almost more than I do.  The look back and talk about their costumes, friends, favorite treats and more.  I never thought I would be one of those memory keeping people, but when it is this much fun how could I not be?
