365 Projects in 365 Days

My previous New Year's resolution was to be creative everyday with my Cricut, but since I've started my blog 2 years ago I have come across so many new exciting things like stamps, digi stamps, non-Cricut projects using chipboard, stickers, etc. and now my addition is the Silhouette Cameo. I will be posting many pictures and tutorials of all my projects. I will be making scrapbook layouts, cards, tags, embellishments and altered items. My goal is to create 365 projects in 365 days.

#194 The Digi Bistro New Release and Halloween Layout

Hi everyone! For this week's challenge #3 at The Digi Bistro we were asked to make a Halloween layout using this fabulous SVG set called HALLOWEEN TOWN! I was super excited when I was downloading them to my computer because this set has 17 items for only $5 how cool is that!!! For my layout I did NOT use not one Cricut cartridge to create my masterpiece LOL! I actually used as many SVG's as I could fit on one 12x12 layout so I was able to squueze in 6.... 3 pumpkins stamped with PKS faces, 1 spider, marquee shape, and "Spooky"title. The other font is called "Carbon Type" font that I downloaded for free somewhere on a free font site (I'm sorry I couldn't remember which site!)

For all of my SVG files I cut them out on my Cricut Expression 2 using SCAL 2. I added tons of Black Soot Distress ink, and Timeless Lilac Glimmer Mist Spray.  I also added some Stickles and 2 very large purple pieces of bling.... LOL so me haha!

I made the chick pumpkin stand out by stamping the sentiment "I Don't BITE...but HE does!" with Crafty Sprouts MONSTER KISSES stamp set and placed a VERY spooky spider on her head. That girl pumpkin is scared of spiders just like me haha! This is how I look at all spiders.... like they have bloody fangs and they are all out to get me haha I'm serious! My hubby makes fun of me all the time because I SCREAM when I see ANY spider ANY size lol!! I placed a pop dot under the spider too!

Here's a closeup of the spooky title!
