The One with Scrap Your Stash #11

Thursday, October 31, 2013

Of all days of the month (nay, even YEAR!), my 11th Scrap Your Stash layout and accompanying video is up at ON HALLOWEEN! So of course I made a Halloween-themed layout. And again, featuring Jane. What can I say? She's a good subject.

Description: I was SO EXCITED to have my latest Scrap Your Stash video go up on Halloween - my most favorite holiday! Perfect excuse to use my Halloween stash. I just made a layout of Fox's first Halloween and I finally got pictures printed of Jane's first Halloween so that's the picture I decided to scrap. With the Thirty-One collection by Pebbles plus more embellishments by Bella Blvd, Echo Park Paper Co, American Crafts, Imaginisce, and more, this layout was a blast to make. It started off being quite different, with a watercolored die cut top layer, but when I placed it over all the punched patterned paper squares it was much too busy. So I toned it down and cleaned it up with a solid colored top layer. You can see the entire process in my video. Instead of editing it out, I thought people could learn from my mistakes! The new Heidi Swapp confetti mask (it comes with stars, dots, and hearts) was fun to try using paint instead of mist. Again, I made mistakes and had to die cut the main image again! Third time's a charm :) Happy Halloween!

Journaling says: For her first Halloween Baby Jane was a too cute to spook witch!

How to: The video shows how to create the layout from start to finish. Here it is written:
Download the when witches go riding - vinyl phrase by Kolette Hall (Design ID #49537) from Die cut the image from cream cardstock. Punch 1" squares from a bunch of Halloween-themed papers then adhere them across a scrap piece of 12x12 paper. Layer the die cut cardstock over the punched squares paper using pop dots. Accent the letters with holes using patterned wooden buttons, black pearls, and brads. Use a mask to paint black stars in three clusters over the layout. Drop orange spray mist over the painted stars and add star stickers as well. Use letter stickers and Thickers to make the main title at the very bottom. Journal next to the title with a black pen. Place a photo on the top left side and edge it with scalloped border stickers. Trim off the cardstock showing through the left scalloped border sticker. Cut a spider web sticker in half and place one half on the photo and the other on the bottom right corner. Add a chipboard bow to each spider web sticker piece. Draw a white border around the edge of the layout using a white pen.
