Halloween Matchbook Minibook/& other Diva's Challenges

Here is my version of the Halloween matchbook mini-book. This was really fun to make. Lori has the complete directions to making as she is having this as one of the challenges at Creative Scrapbook Divas BlogHop. The hinges, key and inside label are Tim Holtz grunge board painted black then wiped with a little copper.

This shows the opposite side, there will be enough squares for 12 pictures or journaling if you use both sides of the strip.

I also painted these chipboard letters but they are too big for the book. They will have to go on the page within the scrapbook. Right next to my little one standing next to a plastic ghost as big as she is!!

Tag Mini-book

This lay-out ended up a bit on the busy side but I'm posting it to show how the tag folds out for extra pictures.
I utilized my stickers but used my metal leaves, in the square, to satisfy my need for texture and dimension. This is an accordian paper tag held together with a decorative paperclip.

This is my second challenge with the Divas this weekend. This is with Ann. She has done a full lay-out using "recipe cards" bundled together for extra pictures on her lay-out. Very clever and has alot of character. This is my version of getting some extra pics on a lay-out. I also have used matchbox minibooks and my Handmade Envelopes. Can't wait to see everyone else's versions of these challenges. One more challenge to go for me.

Back-To-School Lay-Out Challenge

This page was inspired by Creative Memories and by Sandy's Challenge she is running for the "Diva's". I love the handprints and the wooden bus! I made sure to include an oval journal block. The opposite site will include her colorful nametag that was on her kindergarten desk all year and some of her stories she did in writing later in the year.
Check out Sandy's site, she has great tutorials on how to make gift bags. I'm going back to make one. See my last post for the other 2 challenges I took up and the link to the Scrapbooking Diva's.
