Halloween Pre made Mini Scrapbook Album

This was my first "shaped" mini album that I created using my own images (created in GIMP).  Then imported to my Silhouette SD program to design the pages.  On the cover I used patterned paper, and the three die cuts I created.  All images were stamped and inked using Stazon and Ranger distress inks.  I also embossed the cover and many of the pages with a glittery clear embossing powder.  Unfortunately the "glittery glitz" doesn't show up that well in the photos.

Inside cover and first page.  What I love about this page is that the photo will slide right under both of the ghost's hands.  Ranger ink, and embossing powders were used on this photo mat.  The next page was my first clear Acrylic page.  The adhesive ended up not keeping this page together, so I ended up adding more eyelets to make sure that the pocket remained intact.  I created the tag to look like a tombstone with a Bat on top.  One side is a photo mat, and the other is a journaling tag.  I love this page too.

I just love this pumpkin page!  This was a vintage pumpkin image I found online that I did a little tweaking to.  I added shading and highlighting to eyes, nose and mouth...and added the bottom tooth.  I have used this image in a lot of my collages...and little Halloween ornies.  This page is mainly just for decoration....(-:
I just love the colors in these two pages.  The light blue is a great photo mat for a picture.  The moon and clouds are on pop a photo will slide right under the cloud.  I can't wait to see what it looks like with photos in it.    The cat page was a lot of fun.  I created a brick wall in my Robomaster Silhouette program and used it as  a pocket on this page.  The background green paper was actually started out as white American crafts card stock.  I created the paper in different shades of green cat silhouettes.  You can't make it out in the photos...but it is really neat looking up close.  Behind the brick wall is a "Full Moon" journal tag and photo mat.
This is the back of the cat page, and in this pocket I made 2 orange Halloween tags...each one has a photo mat on one side and journal spot on the other.  The next page is a Full Moon can see all the stamping etc.  The Moon flips open to reveal another photo mat and journal spot.  The blue background again started out at white card stock.  The blue paper has bat silhouettes on too looks really cool up close.  All these pages are very glittery.  The pictures definitely don't do it justice.
The back of the moon page has a tiny card on it...which opens to reveal a journal spot and photo mat.  There is also another couple of orange Halloween tags tucked behind the green paper.  They too have  sports for photos and journaling.  The next page is a photo mat, where the picture will slide right under the ghost (he is on with pop dots).
This was originally the last page...that had a journal spot moon.  I ended up adding another page like the back of the front it was a ghost holding a photo mat.  I forget to get a picture of
Here is the inside of that little card...and one of the journal tags.
This is the moon page...and the tags that were behind the cat page brick wall pocket.
I was showing it to one of my scrapbook friends, when another of my friends came up to us...and she wanted told her it was listed on Etsy and eBay...but she didn't want to deal with is not an online shopper.  She paid cash....(-:  i still have it listed on Etsy, because I can duplicate it if someone wanted.
There is a lot of detail...that is hard to see in the photos.
