"Halloween Idea Book"

I really like the idea of Holly's post on American Crafts' Blog with the "Idea Book" for Halloween so I made myself one.   My family throws a big Halloween party every year on the 31st and I am always coming across ideas to decorate, make and bake.  The book will hold all these clippings together, so when it gets closer to Halloween this year i know where everything is instead of frantically searching on the Internet at the last minute for stuff i found months ago.  

Here is how the journal binder started......bought from TJ Maxx for $3.99

I took the dividers that came with the binder and covered them to use a the pockets in the Idea Book.
Here is how it looks completed.  I used eyelets to re-enforce the holes..........

Supplies: American Crafts Patterned Paper - Full Moon, Magic Spells, Transylvania, Friday The 13th, Sleepy Hollow, Bump In the Night, Wicked, Costume Party, Midnight, All Hallows Eve, Boogieman, Horror; Black Cardstock; AC Thickers - Daydream, black; AC Minimarks - Edgar, Potion Accents, Cauldron Accents; K & Company Grand Adhesions - HW Character, HW Haunted House, HW Skeleton; We R Memory Keepers - eyelets, bronze

I am in the process of creating a Recipe binder of those favorite meals that I cook all the time.  I will be using the same type of binder, just different inserts.  I have this project planned to be completed while I'm at the beach in two weeks.   Next, I plan to create an Idea Book for Christmas, since its my favorite time of the year.  Thanks to Holly for an awesome "idea".
