The Cut Shoppe: Halloween Hop

Hi guys and welcome to my stop on The Cut Shoppe Halloween Hop!

Untitled

When signing up to participate in the hop I knew right away that I wanted to make a mini-album! What?! I know, I know this is a total first from me, but I have had the idea/urge brewing in my head for awhile and I thought a Halloween Mini-Album would be fantastic! At least, I hoped it would be ;).

With this opportunity to create something new, I turned to The Cut Shoppe to supplement my Halloween supplies with some fun and spooky cut files. This is the cut file I chose to use: the Wicked Fun Cut File!

The Wicked Fun cut file set includes 5 Halloween themed images, that can be used for your scrapbooking and papercrafting projects.

What caught my eye in this particular set was the spider web because I thought it would make a great element that could be "peaking" out from behind everything and you will find it throughout the mini-album I created documenting our recent trip to Disneyland.

When I was in the planning stage of the mini-album, I spent lots of time looking through my Pinterest board that you can find here. I even took down some quick notes, jotting down ideas as I found elements that I liked or techniques that I might want to include. In the end, I went with a basic tag/journaling card style album and included lots of layers and machine stitching. Here is a look at the inside of the album:

There you have it, my first mini-album! Turns out I LOVE making mini-albums--I had so much fun! This project turned out to be such a breath of fresh air and I felt so comfortable putting it together. So comfortable that I want to make another! What have I started......

Now what would a Halloween Hop be without a super spooky giveaway??  Fun, but not as fun, right? For my turn on the hop, I am giving away the same cut file that I used for my project: the Wicked Fun Cut File (as seen above.) Yay!  All you have to do is leave a comment telling me your favorite Halloween Movie and I will pick one random winner after the giveaway closes on November 2. The winners from each stop will be announced on TCS blog on Novemer 6th. Good luck!

Now for the next and final stop on the Halloween Hop, head on back over to The Cut Shoppe!

  6. Love your mini! I don't like scary movies, but I have seen the exorcist. Not halloween but very scary! Also, I just remembered as a child, my grandmother was babysitting and must have wanted some peace and quiet. Not sure if she knew what she was taking us to, but she dropped all 6 of us off at the movies to see Vincent Price in The Pit and The Pendulum...scared the **** out of us...
