My Guest Designer Week at Everyday Cricut ~ Mini Album!

It's happy Monday here at my blog and I'm over the "Halloween Moon" today!  Why you ask?  I have been asked to be a Guest Designer all week over at Everyday Cricut!  This is beyond cool! 
 
Of course I had to come up with some fun projects this week, I hope you think they are too!  For today's project  I wanted to create a fun Halloween Mini Album!  I don't make them very often, but I think that's about to change...this was so much fun to make!
To create my album pages, I used cereal boxes.  I love the idea of up cycling!


I stitched a bit on the cover and popped up the scary cat!

If you didn't know, I tend to think that my projects aren't complete without a bit of glitter!  So I glittered the ghost! :)

After cutting the banner, I stamped it with the "boo" and more glitter on this ghost! :)
Yes, the skull is glittered! lol

The black frame was embossed with Swiss Dot Cuttlebug folder

 
I used a stamp to create the "pattern" paper too.

 
Lastly I added ribbon on the ring for some added fun!
 
 
recipe:
Artiste Cricut Cartridge
straight lable cut at 4.88 x 2.84 and small layer 4.02 x 2.34
curly label cut at 4.89 x 7.97 and small layer 4.03 x 6.57
Chic and Scary Cricut Cartridge
cat cut at 2.19 x 2.41
banner cut at 1.01 x 1.35
skull ticket cut at 2.22 x 1.12
Happy Hauntings
ghost cut at 1.52 x 1.78
square frame cut at 3.51 x 3.47
circle frame cut at 2.88 x 4.18
pumpkins cut at 2.47 x 2.06 and 2.02 x 2.06
Liz's Paper Loft Boutique ~ 1mm gold hemp, Tricks or Treats paper pad
glitter, ink, rhinestones, ribbon
other paper: Papertrey Ink, cereal box
 
I think this week calls for a GIVEAWAY!  How about a Limited Edition Metallic Hemp!  All you have to do is leave a comment here and on Everyday Cricut with your contact info and I will pick a winner on Saturday, October 20th!
 
 
I will be back later today with another post!  I'm just letting you know now, I have a busy week planned for you! 
 
Enjoy!
