BOO! | Laureen Wagener October 28, 2016 07:00

Boo you cut file fans -

it's Laureen with you today, finally again! I missed writing blog posts ;)

I hope you enjoyed Halloween week so far? I for sure did!

The project the girls came up with were amazing!

Unfortunately, Halloween isn't a big deal were I live in Germany and therefore no one here celebrates it - the kids get their candy anyways and we get to dress up in February/ March for carnival.
If you ask me - I truly miss it! I would love to celebrate Halloween partys, go trick or treating - yes 22 year olds want their candy too ;) - and just decorate. But oh well! Therefore I couldn't come up with a layout for my post - since I wouldn't have ONE picture to use.

I decided to wrap things up and create 3 cards - 2 traditonal regular cards and one that is a tag and can be perfectly used as invitations!

For this tag I used the Pumpkin Tags cut file and cut one of the tags with the face and one just as the outline.

I then traced the tag and cut a sheet of transparency to layer behind my pumpkin. I used Distress Inks in different yellow and orange shades to make my pumpkin look like a pumpkin and adhered some black cardstock behind.

Then I just punched a hole and set a black eyelet and this first project was done!

For the BOO card I decided to use the Web Background as a stencil and really love the effect it gives!

I simply cut it out out of some cardstock, adhered it to my card and used purple Distress Inks over it.

For the sentiment I simply cut the BOO from 31 and used Black Soot Distress Ink over it, sprinkled some black Heidi shine over it and called it done ;)

Last but not least I knew that I wanted to create a scene - now since we don't really do Halloween, I don't have any Halloween stamps - and usually I use stamps for cards all the time!

I looked at the files and found the Bare Tree one, which I cut out and used Black Soot Distress Ink over it. Then I also cut out a pupkin from Build a Jack and the ghost from 31 to use as accents for the card.

The background was made using different shades of purple Distress ink and came together easily ;)

I hope I could help inspire you to create a few cards to give away last minute or to make a quick and easy Halloween invitation!

 

Have a happy Halloween and stay safe!

Laureen

Too cute to spook | Michelle Whorwood October 27, 2016 07:00

Hi Just Nick Fans!  Michelle here with a Halloween layout of a different kind!  The cut files in store make it super easy to create spooky fun layouts for Halloween and there are lots of different ones to choose from.

For my layout I wanted to create a spiderweb background so I cut the Hey Spidey Background file but to keep it soft and sweet still just like the sweet girls in my photo,  I cut it out on white cardstock and filled in sections of it with some patterned paper.  I then added a border of patterned paper to frame the web cut file.

I loved the 'Too cute to spook' title from the 31 cut file set was just perfect for the sentiment that I wanted to portray. I cut this out on black cardstock pop dotted it to add some dimension to my page and used this as my title.

Some close ups:

One of the things I loved about the Hey Spidey Background file is the texture that the lined bits of the cut file creates on my layout. 

Lastly, I added some heart and star stickers to the points of the web and scattered some enamel dots into the negative spaces.

Thanks so much for stopping by the blog - are you creating any Halloween layouts this year?

Cheers

Michelle


Trick or Treat | Tarrah McLean October 24, 2016 07:00

Hi Just Nick fans!

It's Tarrah joining you and today I am sharing my very first Halloween themed layout for this year!

Obviously I had to use photos from last years Halloween, we don't actually really celebrate Halloween in Australia but my son's love dressing up and joining in on the Trick or Treat fun! Luckily because it is getting popular over here now, the shops are starting to carry costumes and things to decorate your home with!

I just HAD to use this amazing Spider Web background when I saw that Nicole had designed it, I was busting to create a layout using it!

I used lots of bits and pieces of Halloween themed craft things that I have had for some time now...there is a bit of Crate Paper After Dark and some pieces from a really old brand called Little Yellow Bicycle!

I used the Trick or Treat from the 31 cut file set for my title and I love how it turned out cut on orange cardstock!  

Last Halloween I had a zombie and a skeleton! How cute are they?!! I also added some Halloween wood veneer bits that I have had for a few years! 

I love how the chipboard spider fits in the corner of the letter 'R'....it was the perfect spot for him to go!

Thanks so much for joining me on the Just Nick blog today! I hope I have inspired you to get your Halloween crafting started!

Happy creating and Happy Halloween!

Tarrah x
