Freebie Friday: Halloween Crafting and a Contest!

Freebie Friday with Jen Walker

Hello, Weekly Scrapper friends! Isn’t it amazing that Halloween is only ten days away? Luckily that means there is still time to fit in some Halloween-themed projects. I think this is such a great holiday to create something for. I thoroughly enjoy Halloween – to my family it means a simple holiday of having fun and enjoying being together. Here’s wishing you and yours a very enjoyable Halloween week! We have shared some fun Halloween projects this month on Weekly Scrapper that I hope you have enjoyed. I wanted to also share some other posts with adorable Halloween projects that were some of my favorites, so read on!

Here’s a fabulous way to give a small gift for Halloween. Roree makes such amazing projects on our “Make It! Monday” posts, and I loved these Treat Cones that she shared with us last Halloween. Click HERE for all the details!

Always love entering for a chance to win a prize, but really love Sunday when I get the Weekly Scrapper news to give me incentive to try new things.

  20. Debbie N says:

    I have had to put aside my paper crafting for a few days, as I am working on my 8 year old grandsons Halloween costume. Together we have been painting on a t shirt using stencils. We have been doing a few parts at a time so he can learn how careful to be with fabric paints. So far he’s been doing a great job!

  21. Shirley Markuson says:

    I made some decorations using craft paper made to look like wood. then I made square tubes made to look like 2×2, Different heights and added colored designed paper then added letters to sprl out things like hope , love, faith, give thanks, and others. then added embleshments.

  22. Lillian says:

    Still scrapbooking my 3,000 photos from my trip to China. Each page has to be different and creative. Using all my products bought at scrapbook fairs.

  23. Diane G says:

    I’ve been working on Halloween treat bags for co-workers. We have a pizza party on Halloween and a nice treat afterwords will be great.

    I’m working on a Frozen scrapbook layout that I will then mount on a 12×12 canvas for a friend’s daughter. And I’m also working on my Christmas and birthday cards too.

  25. Connie Ferguson says:

    I have been doing some vintage repurposing in my crafts! Lately, I have been using old sewing patterns and making folded paper flowers and taking silk flowers, left over from other projects, gluing them in the center and then glittering them. They are super fab!

  26. Miriam Prantner says:

    I’ve been making lots of cards lately, but have just started working on our summer vacation album too.

  27. Cynthia Poritz says:

    I just got back from my third Stamp and Scrapbook Expo this year! I went to Pleasanton, Santa Clara, and Sacramento. I can’t get enough, and the shopping is great. I picked up papers for my Christmas presents of St. Nicholas albums using Graphic 45 papers. I would love to win some more supplies so I can make more and more and more!!!!! and give them away to deserving people.

  28. Vivian C. says:

    Just got together with a couple girlfriends and made a Halloween Bendi card. It was the first time I have made a Bendi card. They came out great! It was a fun afternoon.

  29. Leta Ingmire says:

    I’ve been working on Christmas cards and albums for Christmas gifts. Love getting lost in my craft room!

  30. Janet Schlafer says:

    Lately have snuck in 4th of July layout, football layout, breast cancer card for BCA challenge, and playing around with new embossing folders from Stampin Up for Christmas card designs. Trying to fit in crafting can be challenging with busy schedules. But it is good for the soul so making it a regular priority! Glad to see others are, too!

  31. sharon l says:

    I just finished making fall cards. I really like this layout.i like the lettering, the touch of blue and everything laid out on the opposite side of “norm”.

  32. Celeste says:

    I just completed a mini album featuring my 5-year old granddaughter in all her “princess” poses. I made it for my sister who lives a few hundred miles away and thus doesn’t get to see this little girl’s abundant joy in life and charming personality often. But, no rest for me! My neighbor and my daughter told me it’s Halloween book time again, so we set to work yesterday. These altered books make fabulous Halloween decor. So far we’ve only been altering the covers–giving them spooky titles and adding creepy images (like skeletons and insects), then painting and embellishing them. Some of us are branching out to bottles and decorated boxes as well.

  33. leslie gilford says:

    Halloween is my favorite, oh , and fall. I think it is because I love the colors. You have a great blog and I look forward to seeing new things each week.

  34. Laura Gauthier Turcotte says:

    The latest crafts I have been doing are little Halloween treat bag toppers for my daughter’s first grade classmates…she is helping me, and we are almost finished!

  35. LauraEvaTurcotte says:

    I have been working on some handcrafted Christmas gifts–cannot believe that it is quickly approaching…Thank you for the wonderful chance!

  36. Joyce Rempe says:

    Fall is my favorite time of year it is the color and the change in the atmosphere all around getting geared up for the holidays then for a long winter its the time to gather and stock up and I love the sour cream treat bags will definitely be doing these at least for the grandkids.

  37. Kathy says:
