Cricut Teresa Collins Chic n Scary Layout

I did a fun layout with the new Cricut Seasonal Cartridge Chic & Scary seasonal cartridge using DCWV Halloween paper.

 There are six cuts on the layout above: 2 spiderwebs (6" and 2"), one spider(1-1/2"), Scary(2-1/4"), bat and bird (both 2").
 I double layered the bird above, shadowing it with orange glitter paper.
 I did the same with the bat.  Rhinestones looked much better in person.  Journaling tag was made using Stampin Up! punches.
"Scary" is actually tripled layered; black on the bottom, then orange, then green.  With these one layer cartridges, it helps to "double layer" them and offset the second layer to create a faux shadow.

Sorry for the wonky photos....my regular camera broke (darn it!) and iPhone didn't take the best photos...

Don't forget I have TWO giveaways going on!  Drawing is on Sunday!

  5. Although I like your new blog design, I can't find "you" on it unless I head over to the "about" link. As I popped over here this morning, I was trying to remember who redid their blog. I had to search to find out it was yours... Maybe you need a photo of you in a circle in that space in the top right of your banner?
