Hello everyone! Kim here today to continue the product spotlight goodness that Kylie started yesterday! When I think about SP’s Halloween kits, I have to admit that the first thing I think of is not Halloween. Funny, right? It’s just that I find myself going to the Halloween kits for all kinds of layouts. There are great papers and elements in all three kits ~ Goose Bumps, Boo, and Smell My Feet ~ that when mixed and matched with other kits are really versatile. I thought it would be fun to challenge the team to create an everyday layout with at least one Halloween kit plus at least one non-Halloween kit. And they did not disappoint! I have a ton of awesome inspiration to share with you today!!
To start with, I couldn’t ask the team to create something and not give it a try myself :) Here’s my layout using Smell My Feet, as well as elements from a few different kits. If you could see into my home right now, you would know this is definitely an everyday occurrence, as my youngest is always climbing on anything he can find! Can I just say that I love all the colors in this dotted paper? I could have gone so many directions with color using that paper.
Now for some inspiration from the Shabby Artists… some of who are making their blog scrapping debut today, YAY!! Amber has created such a sweet sleepy baby layout with some great elements from Goose Bumps (love that black photo frame with the tape on the corner). And Kylie paired Goose Bumps with Penelope to create a perfect fairy page. The colors from both kits work really well together.
Aubrey’s layouts are full of fun… we all know how little ones do love a fort and balloons! I love that in one of her layouts she has mixed Goose Bumps with An Affair to Remember for a birthday page. So creative!
Next up Lego and Lindsay have taken pieces from Halloween kits and wrapped them in with all sorts of other kits. I always admire the way Lego uses stamps to create a softness in her layouts, and she has done it again with this one. One of the stamps she used was the scattered stars from Goose Bumps, an element I have used frequently myself. Lindsay has also used one of my favorite elements from Smell My Feet, the cardboard frame, and she has filled in the banner from Goose Bumps with colors to match her layout. Isn’t her cowgirl so cute?!
Our next layout is trademark Rosy. She has beautifully blended photos of her two kids and added just the right touches. Notice how she’s used one of the pieces of tape from Smell My Feet. One of my favorite parts of that kit are the unique pieces of tape. Emily has created a layout with lots of fun photos. I love that she was able to use the alphas and stars from the Wonderful kit. They make a great combo with the plaid paper from Smell My Feet.
And to wrap it all up, here is Casharina’s layout. She has used some of my favorite pieces of all from the Halloween kits: the scalloped frame, word strips and alpha from Boo! I find myself coming back to those elements a lot (especially the alpha). The stitching is very cool too. I really love what she’s done here – clustering perfection!
Thank you ladies for all your inspiration!! If you’d like to see their layouts in more detail and see a full list of credits, check out the gallery, as they’ll be uploading them throughout the day.

Plus, there’s more happening on the blog tomorrow, as Kylie is here to announce the winner of Template Challenge 28… and give you the next template to enjoy! Bye bye!
