Spooky Halloween Finds

We just returned from the Craft and Hobby Association summer trade show, where we saw a ton of fun new Halloween products. Here are some of our favorites! (Click on the title of each to see better images of them.)

American Crafts: Nightfall

This whimsical collection is appropriate for Halloween- or fall-theme pages. My favorite part was the chalkboard paper and stickers—these were some of my favorites from the whole show (and they look great with AC’s Galaxy Markers).

Fancy Pants Designs: Oct. 31

This pretty collection combines turquoise (which looks blue in my photos) with traditional green, purple and orange.

Doodlebug Design: Monster Mania

This line is just downright cute, but many of the patterns could be used on non-Halloween pages (that versatility is one of the many things I love about Doodlebug), and those monsters are adorable. Note the use of turquoise in this line, too!

Teresa Collins: Haunted Hallows

Teresa Collins offered a fun Halloween line featuring crows, cameos, and candelabras.

Bella Blvd.: Too Cute to Spook

The name of the line says it all; it’s killing me with the adorableness! (And check out the turquoise—again! I didn’t get a good picture at their booth. So this one is from the Bella Blvd. blog.)

Pink Paislee: Phantom

This House of 3-designed line may have been my favorite—I loved the chartreuse combined with orange and black, and the patterns are rich and pretty, with just a dash of haunting images.

My Mind’s Eye: Mischievous

This line took a folk-art angle, complete with cute characters and some great distressed patterns (and notice the hint of aqua). (I wasn’t able to get a photo at the show, but here’s a sampling from My Mind’s Eye’s site:

We R Memory Keepers: Spookville

This line uses classic colors and a design with a retro vibe. (My apologies—I ogled these papers for a while but forgot to snap a picture!)

What are your favorite new Halloween lines?
