Hey Jack! | The Cut Shoppe

Happy Wednesday! I’m back today with a new layout for The Cut Shoppe. Today’s layout is Halloween themed. Surely I’m not the only one still scrapbooking Halloween, right?! Halloween is most definitely my favorite holiday to scrapbook and I haven’t been able to bring myself to put away my goodies just yet! For today’s layout I’m using the Ghost Town Digital Collection, the Happy Halloween Wood Veneer Set and the Tangled Web Background Cut File.

I started with a 12×12 pattern paper from the Ghost Town Digital Collection as my background. I then went through my stash to find Halloween goodies that match the photos from our last trip to Disney World when Aidan met Jack & Sally. I used a chipboard banner piece from the Crate Paper After Dark Collection, a spiderweb flower from Recollections, and a couple chipboard pumpkins from Simple Stories Frankie and Friends Collection.

I wanted to back my photos but didn’t want to use pattern paper so I cut the Tangled Web Background Cut File, sectioned it into pieces and tucked the webs behind my photo. For my title I used the ‘Hey Jack’ from the the Happy Halloween Wood Veneer Set, but I wanted to pair it with the word ‘Skellington’. I knew I would be using black alpha stickers from Elle’s Studio so I painted the ‘Hey Jack’ black with acrylic paint so it would match. I added a few other stars and the word ‘Boo’ from the same wood veneer set. I wanted to add a few extra wood veneer stars so I grabbed a few tiny stars from my Studio Calico wood veneer stash. I also used my We R Memory Keepers Typecast Typewriter to add A LOT of journaling! HA! Meeting Jack & Sally was something that was very exciting for Aidan and I wanted to be sure I documented it in detail!!

Boo! | The Cut Shoppe

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!
