Remember the Magic with Kellybell Designs

Halloween is less than a week away. What kind of holiday decorations do you like? Do you like the traditional Fall decorations with scarecrows, pumpkins and hay bales? Or the classic Halloween decorations with ghosts, bats, witches, spider webs and black cats? Or how about the ultra scary decorations with goblins, mummies and vampires? Halloween is such an amazing holiday because there's so much fun with decorating, trick or treating and dressing up in cool costumes. Of course you'll be taking tons of photographs to capture all these special moments. And Kelly's got the perfect collection for you to scrap all those memories. Today we remember the magic of ......

I just love everything about this kit!! It's packed with fabulous decorations to scrap everything from trick or treating to decorating the house and especially for Disney's Not So Scary Halloween Party. You'll find 15 papers in classic Halloween colors and over 50 elements including a black cat, owl, ghost, spooky tree, pumpkins, spider webs, haunted house, moon, lamp post, tomb stone, iron fence, flowers, lanterns, frames, ribbons and so much more. You'll also get a green alpha outlined in black.

Check out these 7 word art titles. How fun!

Both these kits can be found at Kellybell Designs Store for 50% off this weekend only.

Now let's take a look at the new additions to this collection. First, Kelly has created 6 page starters. There's 5 frame clusters and 1 border cluster. It's so easy to merge these together and make some gorgeous photo clusters.

Here's a set of 4 paper stacks that can be used for Fall seasonal photos as well as Halloween photos.

Sometimes you can never have enough solid papers to mix and match into your layouts. Here's a set of 8 papers that coordinate perfectly with 'Spooktacular'.

Here's a gorgeous alpha in orange outlined in black. It matches the green alpha inside the 'Spooktacular' kit. This alpha is great for creating amazing Halloween titles. Imagine all the possible word arts you can create by mixing the orange and green alphas together!

The new Page Starters, Paper Stacks, Cardstocks and Alpha will be 25% off this weekend only at Kellybell Designs Store. Make sure you grab all these Halloween goodies while they are on sale.

You can head over to Kellybell Designs Blog to see some amazing layouts from her entire Creative Team. Here's a page that I scrapped with the 'Spooktacular' collection.

Now comes the fun part! It's time to trick or treat around Kelly's Creative Team and put some freebie eye candy into your plastic pumpkins. Start at Christy's Blog, Jenn's Blog and finally Linda's Blog. Leave each gal a smile and a thank you, they love to create freebies for you. Hope you have a great weekend and enjoy a spooktacular Halloween night!!

Foolish Mortals by Kellybell Designs and a Freebie!

Why is it that we can't get enough scary and spooky things this time of year?? We know a movie is going to be scary, but we just HAVE to watch it. We know a haunted house has some spooky things inside, but we just NEED to go into it. Luckily, Disney has a place called Haunted Mansion that's a little bit scary mixed with a little bit of fun. What an awesome combination!!

Have you been through the Haunted Mansion ride? It debuted in 1969 at Disneyland and shattered attendance records. The Ghost Host introduces you to his closest 999 dearly departed friends. Boarding your doom buggy, you tour through a spooky and dusty 18th century mansion. It's a haunting good ride!! Today, Kelly is celebrating all that spooky delight with a fabulous and frightening new collection called....

'Foolish Mortals' is just filled to the brim with an amazing collection of haunting elements. You'll find a coffin, head stones, pumpkins, spooky tree, monster eyes, flairs, keys, candelabra candle, stitching, lantern, crows, spider webs, journal tags, frames, stained glass, ghost, buttons, ribbons, bat, hinge, leaves, flowers and so much more. Then there's 15 papers in great Halloween colors. You'll really want to add this kit to your scrapping stash!!

Check out these cool word art titles. The kit includes a full black alpha that's both beautiful and creepy!

Kelly has so much fun creating page starters. The frames clusters have so many layers of ribbons, papers and elements. It's addicting to scrap with them!

Look at these amazing papers. There are 4 gorgeous paper stacks. So many uses for these!

You can find all of Kelly's collections for sale at Kellybell Designs Store. All new collections are priced at 25% off for the first weekend, so make sure you save some money and grab these items now! If you head on over to Kelly's blog, you can see all the CT layouts to give you an idea of how you can scrap with this kit.

This kit is very versatile for all your Halloween layouts, haunted houses, trick or treating and of course for Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party. Here's the layout I made with 'Foolish Mortals'.

Would you like some haunting freebies to coordinate with this collection? The colors are just so fun and festive. Your 3 freebies can be found today at the haunted address of Julie's Blog, Kelly's Blog and you get mine below. Have a safe journey and have a great weekend.

Disney's movie 'The Lion King' is such a fabulous story of the circle of life. How can you not fall in love with Simba and his silly friends Timon and Pumbaa? These friends teach Simba so much about life and how to have that 'Hakuna Matata' attitude. If you've seen the Festival of The Lion King show at a Disney Park or at a local theater, you know that it's filled with colorful costumes, lots of animation, powerful songs and a bit of fire and fun. Today, Kelly has an amazing new collection that's filled with those bright patterns and colors. It's called....

You've probably snapped tons of pictures from the Festival Of The Lion King show and this kit is just what you'll need for creating some fun layouts.

This kit is filled with 15 papers and over 50 elements including a spear, torch, crown, frames, flowers, flairs, 5 animal characters, bird, feather, fire, buttons, journal tags, ribbons, strings, scatters, tribal dancer and much more. The brown alpha is very thick and lined with white stitching.

You're gonna love these word art titles. They're perfect for your character meet and greets as well as the Festival Of The Lion King show.
