So as I have mentioned before that I really don't "get into" halloween that much, but I am happy to report that I did get decorations last weekend and we are now not the "lamest" house on the block anymore,lol! So when I got a call from Stampin' Up! a few weeks ago asking if I would be willing to create a halloween project for their Facebook page I of course was excited, but what was I going to make?! The projects were posted last week and I was blown away by the awesome things that this year's Artisan Award Winners came up with. If you haven't already be sure to check them out HERE!
I had taken these awesome pictures of my son last halloween and had used a few of them on one of my Artisan enteries but I had yet to scrap them for myself,(yes I am way behind on scrapping:). So I figured this was the perfect opportunity to do so. I used the Pick Your Poison Designer Series Paper (Holiday Mini) and I just love how one side of this paper is just perfect for scrapbooking. The title is actually cut from one of the sheets and then the main 12x12 sheet already had the awesome border around it.
Another fun detail was using the Basic Rhinestone Jewels and colouring them black using a permenant marker. In person they look really cool where I added them to the skulls on the corner of the page. I also used my favourite Striped Grosgrain Ribbon and cut it in half (width) then pulled out a bunch of the threads to create a neat fringe.
