Halloween Projects & Ideas

This year my hubby has decided to throw a BIG Halloween party complete with a haunted house and all. Yes, he's transforming his parents two-car garage into a haunted house. It's a huge amount of work and I cannot believe he's taking on such a massive project, but he's realllllly excited about it! He's always LOVED Halloween, but it's never really been too big a deal for me. I mean, I like to dress up and hang out with our friends. We've even gone Trick or Treating with our friends' kids. Last year, I made my first ever Halloween mini album.

But this year is different. This year my hubby's excitement has rubbed off on me! I've helped with some ideas for the haunted house. I took the hubby shopping at the dollar store (wow - you can find soooo many cool things for a buck!). I'm making a Halloween banner, filling some treat bags with candy for the kids and I may even do another fun craft project! Teehee! Stay tuned!

I've seen some awesome things all around the internet and I thought I'd share some of my favorites. I found a lot of these projects through the Scrapbook Trends magazine newsletter.

Kerri Bradford created this Halloween kit to be used with the 7Gypsies Printer's Tray below. Each piece is perfectly sized to fit inside each cubbie. LOVE this project!



And here's a cool FREE Halloween digi kit by Jen Allyson that you can download for your layouts or other projects :)



And check out these cool 4x6 bingo cards for Fall from Designer Digitals! :)



I think I will be getting one of these for our Halloween party! These are Halloween labels you can resize and print out to use on just about anything -- even scrapbook layouts!

These Poisonous Labels are by Sande Krieger



And these Haunted Labels are by Rhonna Farrer for House of Three



And last but not least, I love all the Halloween projects that Suzanne Sergi is creating. Here's a look at one of them -- a ghosts and goblins frame!



I hope this inspires you to create a spooky Halloween project! Have fun and please do share your projects with me!

love all these projects... I need more TIME, ENERGY and MOJO to even consider doing any of these... LOL... I'm actually excited about the party but sad that I'm going solo.
