31 Scary Days 2016 | The Nerd Nest

I had fun working on my 31 Scary Days project for this year and it inspired me to make something for the one I recorded last year too! I kept track of scary media (books, TV and movies, events, etc.) in a note on my phone last year, but never made anything with it.

My memory keeping motto is Document Now, Make Later: it doesn’t matter when you actually scrapbook if you have the documentation. Because I wrote it down last year, waiting a year to make something was no big deal.

I did a bigger visual project for 2017, but I decided to use my first 31 Scary Days project from 2015 as inspiration for 2016. Here’s what 2015 looked like:

I stuck really close to this for 2016, but made a 6×12 page instead of a 6×8 page:

I went through my patterned paper stash and pulled papers with a Halloween feel. I selected a black and white stripe paper to use to write my 31 scary things and orange chevron paper for the background. I also decided to add an orange dot paper as a background strip for the title.

The stripes on the black and white paper were more narrow than the one I used in 2015 and I didn’t have number stickers or stamps that were small enough to show up well inside the white spaces. So I used a circle numbers stamp from Kelly Purkey and cut each stamped image from white cardstock.

I finished up with a little embellishment cluster in the blank space on the page.

This is a fun little project and one I want to keep doing for years to come!

Check back later this week for part 2 of my 2017 31 Scary Days.
