halloween in little bits…by sarah little 2


little bits or little bites??? i guess that depends on what you dress up as this year for halloween.

but i have decided to take my halloween in little….well, in small amounts. i take so many pictures that layouts are not an option to show all the fun that we have on halloween. i started creating an album each year. some years i can make them ahead of time and add the pictures after the holiday. and others i am playing catch-up on. several companies have kits that you can use to make it easy. all coordinated and ready to assemble. i did that with this album from little yellow bicycle…

but even still i had too many pictures i wanted to use. i couldn’t narrow it down anymore; i had to keep them. so i glued several photos together – two at a time, back to back. i used Tombow MONO Aqua Liquid Glue. i used it sparingly as it is a water-based glue and too much can warp your pictures. however, i carefully applied a thin line around the outside edges and a few squiggles towards the middle. this holds the pictures securely and gives it more stability. with that done i was able to punch holes in them and add them into the mini album as their own page.

a tip- if you put together an album before you have pictures for it, leave space for a standard size picture. a picture can always be cut down…i do 4×6’s and 2×3’s (a wallet size).

do you have your costumes picked out yet? how about a way to preserve those memories? are you set to take tons of pictures? i am, and i’m putting together this year’s mini-album now….don’t worry, you’ll get to see it in a few weeks!

    Sarah, use the Mono Adhesive runners to put your pictures together. They aren’t water based and won’t warp your pictures at all.

    Cute album!

    Love the mini!! That is a great idea!! I made 5 layouts of my daughter’s last Halloween including a double layout!! Maybe I’ll consider it for this year 🙂 I also use the Adhesive Runners for Pictures and mats, I run out of it quickly 🙂 TFS!! Take Care!!
