May’s Product Picks: A Whimsical Halloween

Choices in scrapbook product go way beyond pumpkins and cobwebs for Halloween these days. There are a variety of choices in style, color, and mood in the latest lines, and today I’m going to spotlight some of my picks from this season for your fun and whimsical Halloween pages.

I’m not always a fan of trendy purple in my Halloween product, but with the super fun designs and very useful papers that make creating layouts a snap, I’ve fallen in love with Echo Park’s “Happy Halloween” collection. This new company is impressing me more and more with each new release, and this one is no exception. [available now at | Two Peas]

Clutching our precious first bag of candy corn, my daughter’s photo went so perfectly with the papers and embellishments in the kit from Echo Park. I love the patterns and how fun they are to mix-and-match together. The stickers are cute too. They are a nice mix of big and small shapes.

Echo Park Jack-O-Lantern paper [ | Two Peas]
Echo Park Skull paper  [ | Two Peas]
Echo Park purple stripe paper  [Two Peas]
Tim Holtz Stickles in Marmalade   [ | Two Peas]
Ranger Enamel Accents in White   []
Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L MyStik tape runner []

Another fun choice, right down to the festive flourishes, comes from Creative Memories and the aptly named “Cheerful Halloween” collection.

Next look at this favorite paper of mine and you can see that American Crafts is full of treats with the Boo collection. [available now at and Two Peas]

Still looking for more? I also recommend Doodlebug’s Spooky Town collection. It’s so full of their trademark cuteness, it makes me feel like a kid again. [ | Two Peas]

I hope you liked the treats I shared with you here today. I’m looking forward to scrapbooking with lots of sweet products this season almost as much as I am looking forward to the candy itself.

    I LOVE Doodle Bug brads! They’re always so stinking cute. I have to agree with you on the Echo Park papers. They look so dang colorful! I have a ton of Halloween papers. I have got to stop buying them, but the designs are hard to resist.

    I have always used purple in my Halloween pages with orange and lime green. Seems to make the pages pop!

    These are great collections! I’m kind of all over the place with my paper choices…it’s kind of the same thing with books & movies for me too. With papers sometimes I go whimsical other times it might go vintage distressed or something in between.

    If you mix a bag of candy corn with a can of salted peanuts it makes the yummiest, easy Halloween snack! Thanks for showcasing these cool products.

    Great picks May! They all certainly look fun to play with. I just got some of Pink Paislee’s Hocus Pocus Clear Cards today. Can’t wait to make an altered Halloween book with them.

    Wow, hasn’t Creating Memories come a long way!
    I saw candy corn for sale in Oz yesterday – at a shop that imports stuff from the US – we also got pop tarts and ding dongs!
