Scaredy Cat - Boo Halloween Layout

Hello everyone!  I made two 2-page layouts for my Halloween photos using the Scaredy Cat Paper Collection from Close to my Heart. Here is the first one using a little help from the Cricut Artbooking Cartridge.

For the base of this layout I used our new Thistle cardstock and the Flaxen cardstock for the photo frames.  


The coordinating Compliments for the Scaredy Cat Collection made the layout come together so quick and easy. 




One of the images from the Compliments Sticker Sheet is a journaling tag that will allow you to add some details about your costume and favorite memory about this Halloween experience!


For this page of the layout I added the black haunted house and overlay that I had cut from the Cricut Artbooking Cartridge.  



I dressed up the layout with some Black Striped Twill Ribbon and Black and Grey Epoxy Bubbles.

Here are some of the fun elements to the Scaredy Cat Paper Collection:

Trick or Treat - Artfully Sent

Hi!  I have another fun card that I made using our new Cricut Artfully Sent Cartridge.  This card is considered a Sentiment card and is very simple to create.


For the base of this card I used our Scaredy Cat Paper.  I cut the image using these keys: <Env-7>Sentiment> and set the dial size at 7".  I backed the front panel of the card with Black Glitter Paper which really brings out the sentiment and then framed the entire inside with some Sunset cardstock.   I added a bow to the center using some Thistle Ribbon.


You can see the shine from the Black Glitter Paper a little better in this picture.



I  cut the tags from the Cricut Artiste Cartridge and the stamped images are from the Halloween Greetings Stamp Set.  I added some Black Striped Twill Ribbon and Silver Sequins to accent the card.


Here is the page you can find this card in the Artfully Sent handbook:

Smile - Birthday Card

Who says you can't use Halloween themed paper for other occasions like say a Birthday?  My niece is a huge fan of Halloween and so I wanted to create a fun card for her Birthday using our new Scaredy Cat Paper from CTMH.  


To start the card off I used Thistle cardstock that is new to our color palette.  I absolutely love this color which is a cross between a purple and pink shade.  I layered the card and all the layers first with black cardstock and then added the Scaredy Cat Paper which you can find here. 


I made the tag by first cutting the image from the Cricut Artbooking Cartridge and then stamping it with a coordinating image from the Pathfinding Workshop on the Go Scrapbooking kit using Thistle Ink.  After it dried completely I re-stamped it with VersaMark Ink and then applied clear embossing powder.  Because our blocks and stamps are clear it makes it very easy to line up your image.  Next I set it with a craft dryer.  This is how you will get the shiny look to your images.   


I layered some flowers that were cut from the Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge and added a brad to the middle.  I added some Thistle Ribbon, Black Twill RibbonBlack Epoxy Bubbles and some Mini - Medley Accents to complete the card.


I appreciate you stopping by!!
