Happy Monday! Today the Making Memories spotlight is started with a simple mini-album using the Spellbound Page kit. I had this ugly tag album from a swap and decided to utilize the kit. I made a quick and easy album that shows a photo of my kid's costumes for Halloween. I kept the measurements throughout the album the same so it's easy to update.

Halloween Through the Years

Making Memories Spellbound Page Kit
Tag Album
Cardstock: Bazzill Black
Paint: Making Memories Black, Melon Acrylic and Specialty Glaze, Tim Holtz Black Crackle Paint
Brads: Making Memories Shimmer Brads and Pebble Brads
Ink: Ranger
Foam Stamps: Making Memories Stencil and Love
Letter Stamps: Studio G
Ribbon: Making Memories, miscellanious

First put a coat of black paint on the cover, inside cover, back page, and inside of the back page. Once dry, add a coat of black crackle paint. Once that is dry, add a coat of gloss for a nice shine.
The pages are all the same. The patterned paper measures 4" x 5.5". The edges are distressed with scissors, then inked. Mat on top of black cardstock and adhere to the album page. Stamp the year along the sides.
Since the pages are the same, you can make the whole album ahead of time and add a new picture each Halloween! The journaling is kept at a minimum, limiting it to what each child dressed up as and where we lived for that particular Halloween.
