Time to get out the costumes and candy and prepare for a night of mischief and fun. It's Halloween and we wanted to celebrate with some ideas on how to make our Acorn Hollow collection the perfect palette for Halloween memories. Take a look at what our Biker Chicks Corrie, Vicki, Liz (me) and Suzanne came up with...
One of our Halloween traditions is to carve pumpkins before trick or treating. I don't like moldy, sad jack-o-laterns so the day of is when the carving must take place. I have tried to teach each of my girls how to get a perfectly cleaned out pumpkin, but only my youngest is showing any signs that she is following in my pumpkin carving lovin' footsteps.

Acorn Hollow is one of my favorite LYB lines to date! I love the earthy colors and the copper foil effects totally ROCK!! To stretch the life of this product line I added a fun Halloween twist. The owls became witches with little paper pieced hats. I love when it all comes together easily and this page was a quick one. Happy Halloween!
Last year's Superman is this year's hero to be named. My son is a little obsessed with super heroes and was only too happy to be the cape wearing Superman, but this year he is between Spiderman and Thor. We will just have to wait and see which costume he chooses (since he conveniently has both stashed in his closet thanks go overly helpful relative if you KWIM). Love how the subtle blue colors in the Acorn Hollow collection can compliment this bright blue costume where other Halloween specific collections might clash with the man of steel.
Use the banners in the Paper Crafting Kit to make a fun title. These banners fold and pop off the page, so I thought it would be fun to make a play on words for the title and instead of All Hallow's Eve, we have Fall Hallow's Eve. I know...corny! Don't forget the darling chipboard leaves to add some detail.
It wouldn't be Halloween without pirates! Use your Paper Crafting Kit and Journal Cards to make a fun pirate emblem. The distressing on the patterned paper also makes a perfect "aged" background almost like a treasure map for the little swashbuckler.
Please have a Safe and Happy Halloween!
