Trick or Treat
As soon as I saw the Halloween LO on my friend (and Stampin Up Demo)Alesha's blog, I knew I had to CASE it and make it my own. Here's Alesha's LO :Spooktacular
Now, I don't have any of that wonderful SU patterned paper, nor do I have the same stamp sets, but I found a way to do something that worked really well nonetheless. I found the BG paper at JoAnn's, and knew right away it would be perfect. Added a strip of leftover patterned paper from another LO, and cut the scalloped circles with the MM cartridge on my Cricut. The "Trick or Treat" was a stencil that I bought at a used scrapbooking supplies sale, sponged with Whisper White craft ink, then embossed to really bring it out. On top of the circles are stickers I bought at the same sale, then I used Alesha's technique on the edges of the orange CS. I think it came out really nicely....do you?
