there’s no escaping
Halloween will be here before you know it.
And I have a confession. After putting up the This+That: All Hallows’ Eve kit, I felt compelled to put up the rest of the Halloween decor . . . compelled I tell you! :)
And it is done.
So of course when I saw this cute little number from Miss Nichol,
I was tickled . . . well . . . orange (can’t be pink, ya know).
| This & That: All Hallows Eve
(“carpe noctem”, coffin, bats, moon, pumpkin, fence) / Subway Art: Halloween
(“there is no escaping”) / This & That: Halloween
(gravestone) / This & That: Autumn
(leaves) / Picture That [Squared]
You may remember that she started this mini album of yearly Halloweens last year.
Pure eye candy . . . or Halloween candy, whichever you’d prefer.
totally love it.
Here’s what Nichol has to say:
I’m slowing beginning to work my way through the [Halloween Costumes album
] I started last year, featuring the costumes my kids have worn throughout the years. I knew when I saw Kerri’s latest This & That: All Hallows Eve kit that the coffin would be the perfect addition to the page featuring my oldest 2 kids in vampire costumes!
For my page, I ungrouped the Halloween Subway Art, keeping only the phrase, “There is no escaping” and positioned it in the Silhouette Software using the Grid feature so I could make sure it cut exactly where I wanted it to. I ran my 8×8 sheet of patterned paper through my machine giving me the negative part of the die cut image. I backed the phrase with scraps of patterned paper.
Next I layered on all my die cut pieces, creating a fun Halloween “scene” for the left side of the 2-page spread and used an 8×8″ photo template for the right side of the page, completely filling it with photos from the night.
I kept additional embellishments to a minimum as the die cuts were embellishment enough for this fun page!
And now, for the winner of the seat in Becky Higgins’ new class:
