Happy Halloween Layout by Missy Whidden

Saturday, October 31, 2020

 Hey friends! Happy Halloween! Missy Whidden here with a fun Halloween layout featuring Paige’s Happy Halloween cut file and her Go the Scenic Route collection. This adorable cut file is part of Paige’s 13 Days of Halloween Cut Files. I cut it on textured white cardstock and then used patterned papers to back the letters. I went with bright colors to match my photos and those papers are Paper 2Paper 6Paper 24, and a few from the 12x12 Paper Pad. I used Paige’s Star Confetti Stencil on the background, which is also textured white cardstock. I coated it with clear gesso first and then used some black, gray, and dark blue Shimmerz to create a dark and spooky effect. I went over the stencil with modeling paste to create some fun textured stars.

Backing a cut file is quite simple. I love it because you can choose exactly which smaller part of the paper you want to use. After completing all the letters, I added adhesive foam behind it to raise it up off the page. I cut the pumpkin from Paper 24 and popped it up. I added the SMILE detail from the Puffy Phrase Thickers. I didn’t want to add too much more to the actual cut file since I love how it looked as is against the background.

I used a few punches to add stars around the bottom of the page, which I punched from the same papers used before. I cut these cute hearts from the 6x8 Paper Pad and layered Ephemera Die Cuts behind my photos. I popped the photos up and tucked in a few colors of tangled thread beneath them for added color & texture.

I mixed & matched embellishments here at the bottom to complete the page. I used a Cardstock Sticker, a Puffy Word Sticker, and a Puffy Phrase Thickers. I wanted to bring all the colors down to this area and the punched stars helped with that.

I hope this inspires you to create something spooktacular today! If you’d still like to get your hands on the 13 Days of Halloween Cut Files, go HERE. This was so fun to put together and I loved using nontraditional colors & embellishments on a Halloween layout! Thanks for stopping by and have wonderful day!
