Hello Everybody! Carrie here using the new “Magical and Mischievous” kit for scrapbooking day 1 in my October Daily!! This is my favorite and biggest project of the year! I do also participate in Andrea's Holidaily, however, my album for that is always much smaller since I don't take as many photos. October is my favorite month of the year and I take LOTS of pics this month lol!
For October 1st I have a bunch of photos of my front garden. I worked really hard on it this summer and didn't really get any photos of the garden in it's prime, so I wanted to make sure to cover all my bases and get pics of everything. The left side of the spread is just three 4x6 inch photos. The middle photo is cut in half since that's the format of page protector I chose. For the right side, I cut one of the 12x12 inch papers down to 6x12 inches and chose this AMAZING hand drawn spider web print for my background. I used my typewriter to add the journaling onto a 3x4 inch light pink notebook ruled card, which I cut from one of the planner inserts. I chose to use the typewriter since there was so much to fit into a small space. The card is slightly popped up using some foam paper and adhered with red line tape.
The "OCT" above the card are Thickers from American Crafts in the font Maggie. I love these for Halloween since they're black glitter with orange foam peeking through. To make the "OCT" stand out just a little bit more I added some purple paper cut from one of the planner inserts.
Below the journal card I used the square number 1 from the number cut apart sheet to label this as October 1st. I popped up the banner from the die cut pack that says "A Magical Day" just below the 1 with thin foam dots. The square number one is also slightly popped up using a little foam paper. To finish off this page and add a little more color and embellishment I tucked in three of the die cut leaves and called it good ; )
Since I have even more photos for Day 1, I decided not to exclude them and just add in another spread. For the left side I chose to use the backside of the spiderweb paper which is this gorgeous dainty orange floral. This fits in PERFECTLY with the theme of my garden photos....I LOVE IT! LOL! Anyways, first I added the "Home Sweet Home" title using the same Thickers. I used the same purple paper to back the empty space in the "O"s. Next, I added my 4x6 inch photo which is slightly popped up onto a thin foam paper. Then I added the silver foil "spooky" to change the saying to "Home Sweet Spooky Home."
Lastly, I layered two pumpkins from the die cut pack on top of each other and tucked them slightly under the "spooky". The way they're layered together almost looks like a rainbow which I think is super cute!
For the opposite page I used the flair button with the orange pumpkin face heart and placed it in the empty space of the bottom photo, in between our rain boots. The cute haunted house filler card from one of the cut apart sheets fit in perfectly with my "house" theme for this spread so I added it in the left center pocket. To add just a little dimension, I popped up the moon with bats from the die cut pack. For the center pocket to the right I made a shaker card using some of the sequin mix from the kit, as well as the three candy corn die cuts from the die cut pack. The see through effect is a favorite technique of mine. To finish this spread off I added the purple pom pom paper clip to the top photo. It looks ADORABLE popping out of the top of my album!! I will probably use all four in this project because it's so cute!
Thanks for taking a look at my project, and I'll see you next time for more of my October Daily! : ) Carrie
