Halloween Stationery

We’re halfway through October, which can only mean one thing – it’s almost time for Halloween.  Dressing up as a child was a lot of fun.  We would go “trick or treat”-ing and ended up with buckets of sweets…  All of the kids on the street dressed up in “scary” outfits.  My go to Halloween costumes as a child was always a ghost or a witch.  Let’s be fair, both of them were very easy to do.  The ghost requires a white bed sheet and come cut out holes.  Whilst the witch could be done with a witch’s hat, a bin liner (with some holes) and a broomstick.  I definitely didn’t spend too much time or effort on dressing up but it was still a lot of fun.

Sadly, children don’t seem to celebrate the day anymore in my area.  But even adults need a little bit of the Halloween spirit in their lives.  So I thought I would share a few bits and bobs of Halloween stationery that I’m loving this year!  Personally, I’m a big fan of supporting small businesses – especially handmade and crafty ones.  So I scoured Etsy for a few things that stood out to me.

Now stickers are probably my favourite thing to stock up on.  I have far too many but still always want some more!  They are great to use in journals, memory keeping, planners, cardmaking or scrapbooking to list a few.  So I thought they would be the perfect place to start.  Here’s a few Halloween themed stickers that jumped out at me (pun intended)!

National Stationery Week – Handmade Day

Foil Inspirational Flag StickersDay 6 of National Stationery Week is here and it’s all about handmade goodies!  I’m a huge fan of crafts and handmade goodies – in particular, I’m trying to dedicate more time to making cards to send to people.  As I get around to creating more, I’ll be sharing these creations with you – in particular on my Instagram channel, so follow that if you’re interested to see more.

However, for now, I wanted to give you a quick update on something that I’m really excited about.  I have mentioned this a few times in passing or hints but I thought it’s about time to make a quick announcement…  I’m working really hard on opening up an online shop!  I’m currently creating designs for the items I plan to stock and trialling them but it will be an Etsy Store for foiled goodies.  Foil Today MarkersStarting with stickers, I’ll go into various other planner accessories and soon cards too.  I have some designs ready for listing and am definitely working to get more up and ready.  The main delay right now is that I have had to send back some of the equipment I wanted to use to get it fixed and the company hasn’t done anything about it in weeks!!  Incredibly frustrating, yes, but it’s given me some more time to create some goodies and focus on my blog so it’s all good in the end right?

I would love to hear what you think of these samples and what you would like to see more of!  If you have any suggestions or ideas then please do let me know.  You can follow my instagram to see more sneak peeks as they are ready and some examples of them in use.  I really love creating these goodies so I am happy that I now get to share them with you.

Is there anything that you’ve handmade today?  I would love to see what you make!
