This is the two page Halloween layout that my scrapping club got to do this month. My favorite things . . . a Daffodil moon. LOVE the Daffodil Delight paper and it looks fantastic on this black page. Each of the 4×6″ Basic Gray Photo Mats are accented with a bit of Old Olive. The square mat can be used for journaling, or for another picture and it is on top of an Old Olive piece that was created with the Big Shot Machine and the Clear Scallop Square die. I cut the Old Olive at 5″ square before running it through the Big Shot with the Scallop Square Die and the excess parts are used to accent three of the photo mats. The photo mat below the square one uses the Photo Corner Punch for its Old Olive accent.

I think the spooky bat is a great touch. This punch is NEW to the 2010-2011 Idea Book and Catalog. If you don’t have your new catalog yet, be sure to e-mail me and I’m sure we can work something out.

Did you notice the wavy border on the bottom? Yes, the new Tasteful Trim die from the Holiday Mini catalog makes this a very quick process! The paper is from our Wicked Fun Specialty paper in the big catalog. The spooky medallion in the upper right corner turned out great! Bet you didn’t know the lattice die could be used on a “spooky” page! The circle layer behind is cut with the Circle Scissors Plus from white card stock vellum. The word spooky is from the stamp set called “Wicked Cool” and it is stamped with StazOn ink onto Basic Gray paper and then punched out with the 2 x 1 3/8″ Oval Punch. That great way black frame behind the spooky is from our Lots of Tags Sizzlits Die set. It coordinates perfectly with that Oval Punch. (I love Stampin’ Up! Coordination!!)

This picture gives you a close up of the spider. I made the web from a 4×4″ square piece of Old Olive that was run through the Big Shot Machine using our brand new Textured Impressions Spider Web folder featured in the Holiday  Mini catalog. (If you need a Holiday Mini catalog . . . let me know!) The top and bottom of the web is accented with torn White Card Stock Vellum.

The spider (a little too real looking for me!) is from the stamp set called Dark & Dreary . . .page 7 of the Holiday Mini. I stamped him with Jet Black StazOn ink onto White Card Stock Vellum and then punched him out with the 1″ Circle Punch. It’s a little hard to see on the picture but his belly and head and popped up a tiny bit by flipping the image over and then running a stylus over those parts resting the vellum onto the foam portion of our Mat Pack. This whitens up the belly and head and gives me a perfect spot to put a drop of Multi Purpose Liquid Glue.

Have a wonderful day, thanks so much for dropping by my blog and Happy Stamping!
