Free Halloween Scrapbook Cluster

I call this free personal use/S4H Halloween scrapbook cluster Halloween Sewing Circles, because it features machine-made stitches, buttons, string and straight pins, with a few fall leaves thrown in for good measure. (Click the image to enlarge it and either right-click (PC) or control-click (Mac) to download it.)

I created this Halloween sewing-theme cluster in honor of my mother, who was a professional seamstress. She made most of my clothes when I was growing up, which allowed me to wear the very loud colors I favored at the time and couldn't find in stores. I cringe when I think of the semi-formal metallic off-the-shoulder dress in bright shades of teal and magenta that she made for me in junior high. Or the skirt and jacket with fluorescent (and that's not exaggerating) orange accents. You could practically see them from outer space. Yikes. Well, I thought it was cool at the time and my mom let me have whatever fabric I wanted. For that she deserves to have at least a Halloween scrapbook embellishment dedicated to her!

 Thanks to Gunhild Storeide for most of the elements used in this design.

Please remember that the freebies on this blog are not for commercial use (they're for PU/S4H only), unless specifically indicated. But the kits on my Digital Scrapbooking Supplies site can be used commercially, subject to a few simple terms. Thanks!

Free Halloween Scrapbook Quickpage

This free PU/S4H Halloween quickpage is another add-on to my Something Wicked Halloween scrapbook kit. I just love using those creepy images to design!

To download, click to enlarge the quickpage and then right-click (PC) or control-click (Mac) to download the art to your hard drive. Some operating systems will automatically bring up a download box.

This "Haunted Halloween" quickpage design is yet another trip to the dark side for me. I'm personally more inclined to dress up as a princess or something pretty for Halloween, but I don't mind creating virtual images that are a little more macabre. It's fun to take on another persona for just a little while.

As I mentioned, this quickpage is from my Something Wicked scrapbook kit, which is now on sale. You can get it by clicking the link below:


The scrapbook elements are also available in a bundle with my CU Halloween word art for a reduced price.

Please remember that you can use my paid scrapbook kits for commercial use, but not my freebies. You can use them if you have a scrap for hire business, though, and, of course, for any personal project you want.

Free Halloween Word Art

This free PU/S4H Halloween word art is an add-on to my Halloween word art kit. It's pretty basic, but I think you'll find it will come in handy for Halloween scrapbooks and crafts.
Click to enlarge the word art and then control-click (Mac) or right-click (PC) to download it to your hard drive. Some operating systems will automatically bring up a download box.

I'm not a morbid person by any means, but I must say that my Halloween kits have been a little on the creepy side. That's the point of Halloween, after all. I'm very happy with both of the kits, but I must say I'm glad to leave the dark side, design-wise, and start working on my two new companion kits, Home for the Holidays: Thanksgiving and Home for the Holidays: Christmas. I never know what a kit will truly look like until it's almost finished, but I'm planning lots of warm colors and a real homey feel.

But let's not leave Halloween just yet! If you'd like to purchase my new Halloween word art, just click the link below:


The word art is also available in a bundle with my CU Halloween elements for a reduced price.
Please remember that while my paid scrapbook kits are for commercial use, my freebies aren't. You can use them for scrap for hire, though, and, of course, for your personal projects.

Free Fall Leaves Scrapbook Cluster

This free PU/S4H fall scrapbook cluster was created using my fall leaf elements. It started out quite simply but I got carried away and couldn't stop adding leaves. Hence, we have the ornate cluster you see before you! I hope you find it useful for your personal or scrap for hire projects. (No commercial use of this freebie, please.)
Click to enlarge the scrapbook cluster and then right-click (PC) or control-click (Mac) to download it to your hard drive.

I'm a little biased, but I think this cluster came out kind of pretty! ;-) It reminds me a lot of the seemingly billions of leaves that used to fall every autumn in the yard of the house I grew up in. There was a liquid amber tree in the front yard that had beautiful colored leaves in the fall. It stood out, because there weren't a lot of colorful leaves in the part of L.A.'s San Fernando Valley where I lived. Most trees went from green to gray-brown to naked in rapid succession. Now I live in South Florida and there's nary an autumn leaf to be seen. But we do have spectacular giant flowering trees with blossoms in bright shades of persimmon and yellow in the spring, so that kind of balances things out.

If you'd like to purchase the CU/S4H/PU fall leaves used to construct the cluster or the fall papers that match them, click the links below:



There's also a bundle for a reduced price if you want both. It includes a bonus free quickpage that uses the cluster in this post.

Happy scrapping! :-)
