Anything Goes at Catch the Bug!

It's Saturday, which means a new challenge over at Catch the Bug today! This week's theme is a crafter fave:

This week's theme is

This week I am posting another scrapbook layout that I've created for my niece's scrapbook!
This photo shows the double layout, each page a 12x12. 
On the right page, the title cluster is an svg file that I made. It is several layers, and includes some Sizzlit die cuts, too (the spider and the small web under the letters).
The larger webs in the corners are svg's I made for cutting with my eClips. The journal space is made using the Bugaboo image Magical Tidbits-Bookshelf. I colored it digitally, printed it out on 3-1/2 x 5 paper, then scored the lines for journaling with my Scor-Pal. Once scored, I used a purple ink pad to darken the lines.
On the left page, the border is punched with an EK Success Deep Edge Punch. The stacked pumpkins are an svg file I made, and are put together with pop-dots: I used Peachy Keen stamps for the faces on each. The adorable witch die cut was created from the Bugaboo image Bobblehead Hween Witch, and the fence from the Bugaboo image Rickety Fence. The cat on the fence is a Spellbinders die, as are the photo mats.
