Sometimes I still find it strange that our kids are too old for the traditional Halloween activities. Sure, they may still dress up, but the door-to-door-and-school-activities of it all has been gone by the wayside for a while. They grow up fast, do they not?

So, in the spirit of all things spooky+sweet, here are some decorative 3×4 cards for you to use as you please…in a plethora of color choices as well as ‘text only’ in black and white.

To download them forever free, click on the image or click HERE.

And then, just for fun, you could do something like this on a photo. Jordan went as Rosie the Riveter to school last Halloween and she took this little selfie…the only photo I have.

I just added a rounded rectangle border to the ‘October 31’ in Photoshop, erased around where the words are, and voila. Simple and sweet.

Now, if you want to grunge one up a little, there is a white grunge PNG background that we used in Design Secrets and Designer Edition One that you can bring into Silhouette Studio (or Photoshop) and so a little something like this:

So there is some fun to be had there. :) Of course you could use any grunge images, but if you’ve taken either of those two classes, you’ll have those on hand already.

And I thought it might be fun to share a few Halloween-ish titles or sayings that you could include on a page:

  • The weirdest people are the best people.
  • Trick or treat is not a greeting, it’s an ultimatum.
  • Come to the dark side. We have cookies.
  • Shadows of a thousand years rise again unseen, voices whisper in the trees, “Tonight is Halloween!”
  • You say witch like it’s a bad thing.
  • Clothes make a statement. Costumes tell a story.
  • Be the strange you wish to see in the world.

Whether you’re young or old, in costume or passing out candy, I hope you have a wonderful Halloween! We’ll be doing our usual chili dogs for dinner and passing out candy to all the cute neighbor kids. Can’t wait to see what they wear!


(And because I’m getting asked, the handwritten Halloween word is from the October Thirty-One kit and the bat is from the This+That Halloween. The ‘happy’ is just a font I had. Easy to make if’n ya got the kits. )
