Crate Paper After Dark - Halloween

This week it's Embellishment Week on the Crate Paper blog! Today I am sharing a pocket spread using the new After Dark collection. Let's take a look!

It was so easy to make a spread highlighting embellishments from this collection, because there are so many great ones! Here you can see how I took a few of the pieces from the ephemera pack and clipped them to my photo with an orange paper clip from the collection. You can also see a shot of the glitter Thickers - so cool!

One of my favorite ways to include embellishments in pocket pages is to use stitching. For this pocket, I added some sequins to the pocket, as well as a piece of the wood veneer and ephemera. I simply stitched the pocket closed and shook it a little to distribute the pieces. You can also do this with glitter - super fun!

I also got a chance to use the Minc along with a few of the After Dark Minc embellishments. Here you can see I foiled the spiderweb piece with gold foil and added it to my photo along with a wood veneer spider.

Here you can see how I used the Minc to add purple foil to one of the embellishment pieces. Such a great addition to the card!

And here's the whole spread. I just love how it turned out! I can't wait to use this collection to scrap my Halloween photos from this year.

Have a great day!
