Hi crafty friends! I have a new layout to share for The Cut Shoppe.
Halloween is right around the corner and I love Halloween scrapbooking products. I think a large part of my love for the product is I forget year to year what is in my stash so it’s always like looking at fresh new product! Ha!
I mix a lot of old with new for this layout. My photo is of Aidan and was taken a few years ago at a Halloween themed NICU reunion. He was all about Batman at that age so his costume was an easy choice. To help highlight the photo I chose the bat image from the Wicked Fun Cut File. I used the Pattern Fill feature on my Cricut Explore to add the text print to the cut file. To help add a something extra to the bat I added orange watercolor and black hand stitching.
I used one of the patterns included in the Ghost Town Digital Collection for my background and also a couple of the pumpkin ephemera pieces. Have I mentioned how much I love the option of printing my own paper and embellishments?! The Print Then Cut feature on the Cricut Explore just makes it so so easy! I added multiple Halloween pieces from my stash including products from Crate Paper, Simple Stories, Recollections and the new CTMH Jeepers Creepers Collection. There are other products on this page but my Halloween stash is quite large and quite old so a lot of the products are no longer in the original packaging making it difficult to know the manufacturer’s name.
This layout was SO fun to put together! I’ve put together a process video that also has a Cricut Design Space tutorial showing the Pattern Fill feature!
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Hey friends! I shared this layout yesterday on the Hip Kit Club’s Facebook page! Grid designs are one of my absolute faves and the products in the 2016 October Kits made it so easy to embellish!
I started with an American Crafts textured white cardstock base from the Cardstock Kit. I then grabbed multiple Project Life cards from the Project Life Kit. I knew I wanted to highlight all of the fun designs on the cards this month and I thought a grid design would be a perfect way to do so!
A majority of the cards were white with text or some type of design and I was worried they would get lost on the white background. So I painted the white cardstock with the Shimmerz Crushed Coral Texturez from the Color Kit along with the Shimmerz Great Fruit Creameez that was in the September 2016 Color Kit.
I positioned the cards on the cardstock and started embellishing. I added multiple pieces of ephemera from the Dear Lizzy – Saturday ephemera pack, a rubber charm from the Pinkfresh Studio – Indigo Hills Collection and a wood veneer frame from the Honey I’m Home Collection which is all included in the Main Kit. I also grabbed multiple pieces from the We R Memory Keepers – Honey I’m Home ephemera pack and a chipboard arrow from the Simple Stories – Posh Collection which is included in the Embellishment Kit. For final touches I added a few enamel dots from the Project Life Kit.
I wanted to play a little more on the fall theme that I have going on with the layout so I added multiple leaves from the Hip Kit Club Exclusive “Leaves” Cut File designed by Kim Watson!
I’ve put together a process video so you can see how this all came together!
Thanks so much for joining me today!
