A Handmade Halloween

One of my favorite Jenni Bowlin products are the Bingo Cards!  You can find them in many themes in classic Jenni Bowlin colors.  I've used them as embellishments, as mini books, as banners ... the possibilities are endless!  The classic colors work beautifully with all JBS product like the Halloween Bingo Cards and the new Vintage Halloween 2011 line.

In this layout, Jenni's Halloween Bingo Cards fit into a pocket in the layout and are used to hold my photos and my journaling on the back side.
I used the charming sheet of Starry Night cardstock and cut it to form the pocket. Foam tape is staggered inside the pocket so the Bingo cards stagger when placed inside.

The Bingo Cards make great little layouts themselves! The little "bee" accent on the Boo Card is made from a Cream Doily flower that was painted with a JBS Lemon Drops paint dabber and cut to form "wings".

The banner is made with the mini patterns from the Halloween Mini Pattern Sheet and vintage dictionary pages. The Doily flowers are beautiful accents for the banner and can be cut to form scallop shapes.

Supplies used:
Starry Night cardstock
Halloween 2011 Mini Pattern Sheet
Orange and Black Shadow Alphabet Stickers
Black Doily flowers
White Doily flower
Decorative Delicate Brads
Vintage Sew-On Buttons
Seal Clear Stamp
JBS for Ranger Lemon Drop Paint Dabber
