Halloween is one of my favorite holidays to decorate for! This fun magnetic memo board makes a festive home for to-do lists, and notes to the family. I plan to display it in my kitchen throughout the month of October.
To decorate this memo board, I cut a 1” strip of cardstock for the top & bottom, and created a scalloped edge with the Fiskars Threading Water punch. The row of pumpkins along with bottom were punched with the Fiskars Jack punch…I used a black mat & foam dots to make several pumpkins stand out to create more interest.
The magnets were created with the Fiskars You’re So Corny punch…simply punch out the shapes, mount on black cardstock, and adhere a magnet to the back. I adhered a piece of chipboard to the back of my candy corn first, just to make it sturdier.
Supplies: Fiskars You’re So Corny punch, Fiskars Jack punch, Fiskars 12” Portable Trimmer, Fiskars Classic No 8 Bent Scissors, Fiskars Threading Water Border Punch, Other: magnet, ribbon, cardstock

I layered my panel of ghosts to some Heidi Grace Designs Halloween polka dot and paisley paper and attached it to a Lil Davis Designs scalloped die cut piece of cardstock. I added a title above the patterned paper and some journaling strips below it. I finished the layout with some stitching, a 4x6 photo, and a label sticker.

So many good memories of fall, and the Halloween squeeze punches work on anything from vintage book pages to cardstock to patterned paper, so your options are limitless. To create a page like mine punch nine 'seal of approval' punches and nine boo and scaredy cat punches. Put one of the shapes onto each one of the seals. Next adhere layered Seal of Approval/Halloween punches to office supply tags. For the first tag on the bottom, cut a piece of the Heidi Grace Plaid Paper to 2 inches using Fiskars Desktop Trimmer and adhere to tag. Add rickrack, and trim to embellish. Set aside while assembling the rest of the layout.
Take 8 wallet sized photos (which can be printed as a collage, but don’t have to be) and adhere to center of black cardstock piece trimmed to 8 ½ “x 6 ½”. Adhere matted photo collage to 8 ½” x 11” Kraft Cardstock about 2 ½ “ from top. Cut two pieces of heavy string to about 10 inches and tie tags using black ribbon strung through holes to tie to string. Staple “happy” tags to top of layout. Staple “fall” to bottom of layout. Type or computer print journaling onto vintage ledger paper and cut into a strip and adhere to layout between rows of photos.

The cover is embellished with a trio of candlelit jack-o-lanterns, each with its own design. Simply punch out three pumpkins from black cardstock and punch and trim away any design you wish and adhere with foam adhesive dots over yellow cardstock covered in Glitter Glaze for extra sparkly shimmer (I also added silver glaze around my frame). I drew a face on the back of one pumpkin to cut out with a craft knife. I printed a monogram backwards and adhered to the back of the next pumpkin and cut out with craft knife. The third pumpkin is simply a series of star punches!
Right now I am obsessed with having a "peek inside". Since my album is mostly a series of 4x6 photos, I wanted a title page separating each year to organize them. I knew I wanted an image punched to peek onto the next photo, but punches only allow you to punch around the edge of a paper. Problem solved when I grabbed my oval shape templates and Ultra ShapeXpress to cut a window in the middle of the page and layered my reverse punched image behind! I did this two ways. The first sample page has the oval cut through two sheets of patterned paper at the same time with the cut punch adhered in between the layers so that each side is clean. The second sample is a journaling pocket where the oval and punch are only on one page revealing the text tucked inside the sewn page. Try this technique with cards and treat packaging ... you are no longer limited to the perimeter of your projects!
Those were a few tricks to try out with these Halloween punches, but what are tricks without treats? Here's a bonus idea to put those punches to work to whip up Halloween treats in no time. Ice your cupcakes or cookies and punch a masking template for your sprinkles from thin paper plates. Test one out first to be sure you don't need to use a spray on your templates if they stick. Skip the icing and add your designs before baking for a less messy treat!
