2018 Halloween Scrapbook Paper Collection Round-Up

There’s been a lot of talk the past few years about the explosion of Halloween products in the scrapbooking industry. As holidays go, it’s probably the second most popular one to create scrapbooking products for. That said…for 2018 I’ve one been able to collect about half as many new Halloween paper releases as Christmas ones. This is a testament to both the runaway popularity of Christmas, and the fact that the Halloween “trend” may not be as ubiquitous as it seems. One factor limiting Halloween’s market, of course, is that it doesn’t have quite the international appeal of Christmas.

What are the trends for Halloween 2018?

The biggest trend visible this Halloween is the integration of purple and green as Halloween palette colors. The integration of these colors started with “alternative” Halloween collections entirely in purple and green, offered as alternatives to the traditional black and orange. This has now progressed to purple and green being mixed right in as part of the color palette of the black and orange.

American Crafts is betting that the “photo realistic” look is coming back. This look was popular in the early days of the scrapbook industry nearly two decades ago but hasn’t been widely seen in products in a long time. American Crafts’ new Halloween Photo Real paper pad is part of an 8 pad Photo Real collection. The company’s DCWV brand also appears to have included some “photo realistic” style paper designs in its Dark Fairytale paper pad. Is photo realistic back? It’s up to consumers to decide!

Vintage style is conspicuous in its almost complete absence from this years’ Halloween lines. Only three 2018 Halloween lines are arguably vintage in style. (Although we haven’t seen pictures yet, it’s a pretty safe bet that the new Tim Holtz idea-olgy release will qualify as vintage!) The presence of vintage style in the industry has been growing in the last year or so, but many of the brands traditionally associated with vintage in the industry (Prima, Graphic 45) don’t have Halloween releases so that influence looks less than it really is in the Halloween releases.

If you know of a Halloween paper collection that is new for 2018 that should be included here, please email nancy@nallystudios.com.

    I love this roundup. Although I am trying to work through my stash, I can’t wait to see what Tim Holtz’s paper line looks like. 🙂

      Me either! Tim always goes all in on Halloween!

    Always a fan of Authentique and once again I’m impressed!

    • Nancy Nally July 30, 2018 at 2:43 pm #

      They do have such solid design at Authentique! A lot to like there.

    I’m such a sucker for Halloween themed stuff! I love almost all of it-the photo real stuff has never topped my list-I find it hard to use. But the rest? OMG! Now to be honest, my kids are grown and I don’t make Halloween pages any more but this article has inspired me to paper craft all the other fun decor items I’ve spotted. Thanks, Nancy for a fun round-up of everything Halloween! Always enjoy your articles. Thanks for keeping us in the loop!

    that dark fairy tale is so different, i like it!

    I’ve been seeing the purple and green along with the black and orange for what seems to me quite a few years now in Halloween paper crafting products. I can’t say that I follow all the patterned paper releases each year, but I sure have seen purple and green included in other paper crafting products for years. My husband has even commented on it so that shows it’s been pretty prevalent. LOL!

    • Nancy Nally August 4, 2018 at 11:07 pm #

      Oh the integration of purple and green definitely didn’t start for the first time this year. What struck me is that it now seems virtually ubiquitous, and that not a single company treated that pairing as a separate palette (as it originated).

    I like the Pebbles stuff, but I need Halloween supplies like I need a hole in my head.
