Dead Zone Halloween Mini Album by Dana Tatar for Paper Wings Productions

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. I look forward to this time every year. I've learned that I have a much better success rate of finishing mini albums when I have them complete and ready for photos before the holiday. I had a blast creating this "Dead Zone" Halloween Mini Album with some of my favorite stamp sets and clip art sheets from Paper Wings Productions.

Dead Zone Halloween Mini Album Cover Shaker Box Closeup by Dana Tatar for Paper Wings Productions

I wanted to brighten up the traditional Halloween color palette, so I worked in some patterned papers from the Pink Paislee Vintage Moon collection. (Tell me I'm not the only one still hoarding paper from 2008!) I really love this blue! I tore a page out of Stephen King's novel "The Dead Zone" for use as a title. I wanted to make something fun and eye-catching for the cover, so I assembled a shaker box. I used the Skeleton Mélange Cling Stamp Set with black archival ink to add a flying skeleton to my scene.

The album kit I purchased for this project included both black and brown chipboard pages. I left the black pages uncovered so that I could use some white ink. I stamped an inky circle using white ink and the circle stamp from the Big Textures Cling Stamp Set. I created a dimensional image with a foam sticker blank and an image from the Halloween 1 Clip Art Sheet.

Happy Hauntings Stamped and Embossed Black Tag by Dana Tatar for Paper Wings Productions

I stamped up some tags for an interactive envelope feature. I used the Perfect Numbers Clear Stamp Set to stamp a die-cut with the number 31. I dressed up a black tag with the repetitive greeting "happy hauntings" from the Halloween Mix It Up Clear Stamp Set, using white ink, which I then embossed with clear embossing powder for a shiny finish. The inside of this stitched tag insert has space for photos of my daughters dressed up in their costumes.

I added some boos around a chipboard ghost using the Halloween Mix It Up Clear Stamp Set.

I used another stamp from the Big Textures Cling Stamp Set on page to the left. I filled in the stamped circles with glow-in-the-dark paint! I used the Good Witch Cling Stamp Set for the focal point on the page on the right. I used black acrylic paint to brush a sloppy frame around the stamped image.

I think this set of pages is my favorite! I don't use my white ink nearly enough, so I took the opportunity to stamp some more designs on the black chipboard pages. I used the branch stamp from the Winter Wonderland Clear Stamp Set to add some bare branches across the top of these pages. The small bat stamp that I used to fill in some of the empty background space is from the Fall Add On Clear Stamp Set.

Fradie Cat Tombstone by Dana Tatar for Paper Wings Productions

The two small tombstone stamps from the Fall Add On Clear Stamp Set were the perfect size to add more items to the background landscape of this page.

Wicked Witch Tombstone with Ruby Slipper Legs by Dana Tatar for Paper Wings Productions

I filled in some wood veneer tombstones that I inked, embossed, and painted, with images from Clip Art Sheets. Two of the images are from sheets that are no longer available, but the Wicked Witch is included on the Halloween 2 Clip Art Sheet. I thought it would be fun to add some ruby slipper and striped stocking clad skeleton legs to the bottom of the Wicked Witch tombstone!

I embellished a chipboard bat with a stamped greeting, 'flying by to say hi,' which is from the Fall Add Ons Clear Stamp Set.

Halloween Greetings Stamped and Embellished Tag by Dana Tatar for Paper Wings Productions

I embellished a tag with some lace ribbon and lace stamping using the Fringe Lace Clear Stamp. I inked and embossed a wood veneer jack-o-lantern to add dimension to an image from the Halloween 1 Clip Art Sheet.

I used more clip art images to embellish these pages from the Halloween 1 Clip Art Sheet. I used the branch stamp, from the Winter Wonderland Clear Stamp Set, to extend the branched on the patterned paper across the page on the right.

I added another pocket tag for journaling and a photo spot on the last two pages.

Dead Zone Halloween Mini Album Back Cover by Dana Tatar for Paper Wings Productions

I used the Perfect Numbers Clear Stamp Set to add the month and year to the back cover of the album.

I hope I have inspired you to use up some of your older stash and to incorporate stamping into your projects! I created two Halloween mini albums during my previous term with Paper Wings Productions. If you'd like to check them out, follow the links below, but please note that not all the products I used are available. However, the stamp sets are!
