Spooktacular Layout by Laura C

This is a 12x12 layout that starts with the Basic Grey (BG) Lime Rickey collection.  The 12x12 lime green page is distressed around the edges and then inked in black.  The next layer is the orange polka dot from
Lime Rickey cut down to 6&1/4" by 8". This is also distressed and inked.  The photo is 4x6 and is double matted--first on a 4&1/4" x 6&1/4" piece of orange (from Lime Rickey) and then a 4&1/2" x 6&1/2" piece of lime green core'dnations from the Black Magic Spellcaster collection, that has also been distressed. The matted photo is then placed about 1&1/2" from the bottom and from the side of the orange polka paper.

From here, you can embellish and have fun.....I used a bat punch from EK success on a 1"x8" piece of black
cardstock, and placed this close to the bottom, then pleated and stapled on Halloween ribbon--the Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher is perfect! The medallions were made using the Cuttlebug A2 folder "Boo to You", and the same piece of Core'dinations cardstock. Once embossed, it was sanded to make the images "pop".  They were cut out with a 1 & 1/2" circle punch. The skeleton head circle is mounted on a 2" circle (distressed and inked) and then pop dotted.  The "boo" is just adhered with glue dots. An American Crafts pearl brad holds the "paper lace" in place (PS that was the bat punch that was punched on BOTH sides of the 1" strip of paper!).  The "scary" was adhered with glue dots, to a rosette made from a 1&1/2" x 12" piece of the polka dot from the Lime Rickey collection. After accordian folding this piece, I adhered the ends together with adhesive, and then the entire rosette, to a 2" circle of plain cardstock using glue dots.

Hope you get some inspiration for those "Spooktacular" fall and Halloween pictures you'll be scrapping soon!!

  1. Love this page, Had to take a closer look, I thought the ribbon border was a bunch of small pic's of the kids trick or treating. The flower is so darn cute, must try that. KathyR.

  2. Laura, this is really nice. I love the trick or treaters. You definitely captured the moment with a wonderful blend of several techniques. BG Lime Rickey paper, who would have thought to use that. So creative.

  3. Great layout. I love all the details. I want to learn how to make those rosettes. TFS
