My Pink Designer Post

Hi Everyone and welcome to August's My Pink Designer Post. Today, I have a project featuring the new My Pink Stamper Spook-alicious stamps. Here is a little peek at what this awesome set looks like:

Isn't it CUUUUTE?? I just love the sentiments! If you think you might be interested in ordering a set of your own, then please go here for a list of online retailers.

Okay, on with today's project! I found this house shaped book in my stash and decided to use it for my project. Then, I pulled out my favorite Halloween Cricut cartridge of all time, "Mini Monsters" and went to work.  Be prepared...lots of pictures to follow! :)

Front Cover of book:

The spiders are from the My Pink Stamper Spook-alicious stamp set. I stamped each one on white paper and then cut around them (leaving just the slightest white border to allow them to stand out against my background). I also cut out two fences and adhered them in one continuous strip. Then I added glossy accents over it to give it a bit more of a 3D look. The door and shutters I created myself.   Border punch by Fiskars.

Pages 1 and 2:

And a close up of Mr. Vampire.  If you wanted to, you could allow these cards to open to reveal journaling...or maybe tuck a tag in behind. 

Vampire cut at 4".  Martha Stewart Drippy Goo punch used for border.  Because the cuts were so tiny, I also cheated a bit and used a white pen to color in his fangs.

Pages 3 and  4:

Cauldron cut at 4".  Border punch:  EK Success  ( I wanted it to look like a page from a spell book).  Stars: Ek Success Paper Shaper punch.

Pages 5 and 6:

Witch's hat cut at 4".  EK Success border punch and Paper Shaper punch (stars).

Pages 7 and 8:

 Pumpkin cut at 4".  Fiskars border punch for photo mat.

Pages 9 and 10:

Isn't that spider just sooo adorable??  And the sentiment works perfectly with it!  I can see a card being made very soon with this same combo! :)

Spider cut at 2 1/4".  Border punch by EK Success. 

Pages 11 and 12:

Broom cut at 4 1/2".  Border punch by EK Success.

And that's it!  I hope you liked my little book.  And, as always, if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to email me at cricutcuteness@yahoo.com

Thanks so much for stopping by today, and be sure to head back to Robyn's blog to see what the rest of my design team friends have made!  Have a GREAT day!! :)
