|Halloween Mini book cover|
This book is made with retired My reflections "spellbound" paper pack from CTMH from my stash. The coloured part of the face is clear plastic portfolio scraps from back to school supply sales, that stuff cuts "like buttahhhh" in the cricut. I hope to show you in another post what I've been doing with it. Like I said, I've been busy busy busy, so I need to squeek in some crafting play time too.
Black Shimmer Trim, the cat eyes are Epoxy bubbles, I really like the iridescent stare they give.
Liquid glass. Interesting that one side is shiny & one side is matte for that plastic.
Distressed Backgrounds, sunset ink, black ink, slate ink. The spider is an accent from the Artbooking cartridge. It is easiest to cut a bunch of accents all at the same time while the paper is loaded on the mat. I figure I've gone to the trouble of picking & loading papers, the scrap may as well get to work for me giving options to play with when assembling. Of course it gives me loads of offcuts, but they go in a baggie to be used on other projects, or give away to school or a friend. I also keep bigger scrap papers until projects are done. That is the best way to test inks etc as I create. No sense testing on the project itself if I don't need to.
bonding memories glue pen makes easy work of adding little things like that.
sparkles flourish, and the "zip strips" that are on the edge of CTMH pattern paper.
Bakers twine- autumn terracotta, the spider got a slick of liquid glass to make her shiney. The centre accent is from retired CTMH product that coordinated with the paper pack. I wish I had used grey fun foam instead of white pop dots from my stash. Tilting the page to the side it doesn't look very nice. Oh well, I'm not changing it now.
Creepy creatures, stamp set, stamped in black, white daisy, autumn terracotta. The orange is matted on the houndstooth paper. I used my corner rounder with the guard off to create the scallop edge.

Overall I really enjoyed puttering along creating this book. I have been working in batches these days. One day I did all the cutting, another day finessing accents and picking pictures. Then the fun part was choosing page order and playing in the details. The nicest part about using the Artbooking cartridge was setting the dial to one size and not having to play around with sizes, it all coordinated. EASY, simple, and I get all the credit, what's not to love?
