I love the Halloween pencils that are shown on page 41 of the new Annual Insprirations Idea Book.  I thought they would be supper cute as straws too.  So I recreated them.

Halloween is around the corner…….

We are heading into my most favorite time of year.  I absolutely love fall ….the cool weather, colors, football, and of course Halloween!!!  Some of you may be thinking of other great fall things like kids back to school (my son is not old enough for school yet) and hunting season (my brothers and dad look forward to this).   I am actually getting excited to decorate our new home for Halloween, so if you are a Halloween fan like me, then you will love this album I have designed based on my favorite Holiday.   Now I know there are a few of you out there who are not big Halloween fans – I do forgive you 🙂

When I saw the Halloween paper pack – Scardy Cat, my mind started scheming.  I have purchased Halloween mini albums in the past but I have always wanted to design one myself.  I will be selling this album as a kit which you can order and recreate on your own. Here is an over view of some of the pages…..

Scardy Cat mini album collage ~ catscrapbooking.comI designed this album using our My Creations Kraft 3-Ring Album.  If you are not familiar with this album you will want to check it out as it can be converted to what ever your theme of album you want, all you need to do is use your Cricut to cut 8X8 inch pages using the Artbooking Cartridge or design your own.  I really had fun making this album and can not wait to start adding my photos.  This album the way I designed it, has 12 pages and can hold over 30 photographs.  You may be thinking wait I don’t take that many halloween photos; no problem you can make is a collaboration of several years of Halloween fun.

When you order this kit from me you will receive color photos of each of the page layouts, detailed assembly instructions, cutting guides, over 25 pre-cut shapes and one of the images pre-stamped for you (the potions on page 2- see below photographs)  There will be two different price points for you to choose.

Level 1 $40 plus shipping – this Kit will include the following items:

  • My Creations Kraft 3-Ring Album
  • Scardy Cat Paper Pack  (some of these pages will be used for the pre-cut accents)
  • Scardy Cat Complements 
  • Scardy Cat Assortment
  • (1) extra Colonial White Cardstock (all pre-cut)
  • (2) extra Orange pattern/Polka-Dot B&T Paper
  • (1) extra Black Cardstock (all pre-cut)
  • (2) extra Sunset Cardstock (all per-cut)
  • Over 25 pre-cut images (including pear, honey and glitter paper)
  • 12″ of Bakers Twine
  • 24 ” of Thistle Diagonal Striped Ribbon
  • 5 additional Black Stars
  • Step-by-Step Instructions

Level 2 $80 plus shipping – this kit will include everything in the Level 1 but will also include the following:

I will be taking orders starting mid September as I am still getting settled in the new house in Colorado and will plan to ship out the first week of October.  If any of you are reading this and would like to do this as a workshop and live in the Greater Denver area I would be more than happy to make arrangements to do so.  If you are interested please email me at catscapbooking@gmail.com

There are a few additional items you may wish to purchase to help you complete the project:

Here are a some of the pages in greater detail, starting with the cover.

Scardy Cat Album pg 2 & 3 ~ Catscrapbooking.com

This is page two and three  of the album.  I will be stamping the tag with the “potions” in Thistle for you when you purchase the kit as level 1 or 2.  You can see the new Black Striped Twill complements the album and makes it a great must have.

There are two pages like the one on the right that actually fold out to add more photos and interest to your album. Here is what the right page looks like when it is fully extended.

Scardy Cat Waterfall Card

I have been busy getting ready for the Open House/Crop which is in less than two weeks.  It is going to be a great on so if you are in the Spokane Area you will want to make sure you come!  It will be August 16th at the North Spokane Library.  If you want to come to the crop you will need to RSVP to me to save your spot.

Here ia a card I designed using some of the Halloween product.  I have always loved the Waterfall style cards and it was one of the first fancy style cards I learned to make when I started making cards.  I decided it was time pull out this technique as it would work wonderfully with the adorable Trick or Treats Sweets B1460 .

Halloween waterfall card

I actually used two different sizes when I was designing the waterfall aspect. the one on the left is 1 3/4 inches wide while the one on the right is 2 inches wide.  It does effect the scoring when you change the width as you are working with smaller squares.

To get the ink to pop on the black cardstock you will want to use your pigment inks.  I used Frightfully Fun B1453 stamp set with all the great halloween expressions.
