I’ve been having a blast talking with students in my new class (just 1 more day left to sign up!) and I am feeling so inspired – that I had to whip myself up a kit. Most of this came from a recent order I made, and I thought “ooh… maybe I could be super organized for spooky crafting..”
I make myself kits on a regular basis, I just normally don’t share that here. Maybe I should? let me know! This will be my “Halloween” kit. Oh, I have more themed stuff than this, but this will remain in a bag and ready should I want to get scrapbooking or card making with a spooky theme and will serve as my base kit for this October. I stuck to orange + black + kraft + white. There may be tiny touches of yellow, green, or even purple… but my main colors are definitely set. I’ve got those big bold stickers, so I kept my patterns small and useful with lots of great double-sided options. In fact- about 1/2 the papers aren’t “Halloween” – they just fit what I was wanting color and pattern wise! Remember you can always make something feel themed without actually going heavy on themed stuff.
That’s always one of my big holiday craft shopping tips: go for stuff in colors you want, but that could be useful for holiday crafting… or non-holiday! Makes it more useful, and you’ll get more use out of it. Here’s a full kit list –

I will tell you – I’ve got a bunch of Halloween and fall projects in the work including some amazing give-aways coming from Martha Stewart… yes, we’re entering fall and I LOVE it! I would take time to make myself an autumn kit too, except well, I think instead I’ll just start crafting!
