Halloween Hop Day 1: DIY HALLOWEEN DAYBOOK


Hello Hoppers!
So glad you could join us for our  Halloween Hop! Today I have a fun DIY project to share. Daybooks have really taken off in the past few months. Recently my crafty pal Aideen shared some pics of a Halloween themed daybook she put together. I was instantly inspired, and we knew we just had to share this fun idea with you!

The great thing about daybooks is that they don't have to be huge or super detailed! They are meant to capture as the title suggests a "day" or two. Of course you can get as creative and detailed as you would like, but the small pages really lend themselves to creating small, simple layouts. So if you are short on time a daybook is the perfect "quick project" to document a day or event.

Now, before I share the daybook that I created to document my Halloween this year, let me fill you in on all of the Hop details! Today and Tomorrow Aideen and I will both be sharing fun Halloween projects and inspiration on our blogs. Make sure sure to comment on our post both days, as well as become a follower of our blogs if you are not already. On October 31st (Halloween) we will be randomly drawing comments from both days to win some awesome prizes! Sound Fun!?

Alright! Now, on to my DIY Halloween Daybook
I still have a few pages to fill since Halloween is still 2 days away, but I added a few pics of some Pre-Halloween fun!



This is the Cover of my daybook. It is inspired by the style Amy Tangerine daybooks. It measures 4 3/4 in by 7 in. The papers I use throughout my daybook are all from the October Afternoon Witch Hazel collection. I used my sewing machine to bind my book, with some all purpose thread. So far It has been holding up great!
