Chic Tags Color Challenge - and A Non-Traditional Halloween Layout

Chic Tags posts a challenge every Sunday.  I don't always have a chance to complete them, but I always check in for some inspiration.  This week's challenge is a color challenge - full of springy colors.  So I did a Halloween layout - I think it is so much fun to use unexpected colors on seasonal layouts.

 My layout is a two pager, but each page can stand on its own from a design perspective.  I accomplished this by using a common paper for the center block that runs across each page and using a uniform paper and ribbon border across the bottom of the design.  Here's the first page:

And here's the second page:

I also used common embellishments across the pages to tie them together - rubons, wood veneer, and sequins.  I especially like the way the rubons worked when I applied them across multiple papers.

 Do you have tricks for creating two page layouts?  I'd love some tips.  Hope you had a marvelous Monday!


  1. Sorry we missed this earlier, but I wanted to still come by and say thanks so much for linking up with us a Chic Tags, great idea to switch things up a bit and use Spring colours for Halloween. Worked just fine :)

  2. Your layout is awesome, love the sequins!
