Breathless about my favorite things.

Here is a layout I created using some of my new favorite things. A big thank you to Practical Scrappers for the idea. First was Marah Johnson's Breathless Gate Die Cut. I really like this die cut. When I bought it, my mom as wondering how I was going to use it because it is so big. It did not take me long to figure out I wanted it in the background on my page. I layered it with three colors of paper: orange, purple and green. I outlined the key hole on the gate with a green glitter jelly roll pen (Sakura). If I could do it again I would use the white with glitter over it.

The SPOOKY letters are glitter punch outs. Which I inked using the Color Box CHALK in dark brown and the StazOn in jet black. I think StazOn smells like licorice. Yum. I created mats for my photos (to come soon) with purple rice paper and the leftover green from the background. The green I tore and inked with the brown and black. I stamped the "Danger do not Enter" on a leftover mat that I had been using to protect my desk while I inked some things with the Distress Ink in peeled paint on another project. I took the Halloween ribbon from Craftology Studio and cut the ghosts and pumpkins from it and matted them on white paper also inked with peeled paint. Some of these I mounted with pop dots for dimension. The cat and bats are from Jolee's boutique.

I really like the way the page turned out. I hope you enjoy.

  1. Great idea! The gate really looks great on that colored background. I really like the SPOOKY letters. Halloween is just around the corner and it reminds me of how much fun scrapbooking there is to do!
