Today, I am sharing a new layout over on the KBS Blog. And this one has a spooktacular feel to it!
Last year, I started an 8x8 [Halloween Costumes album] featuring the costumes my kids have worn throughout the years. I am slowly starting to get additional layouts finished and put in my album and it's so fun to look back through and see the pictures of my kids and how much they've grown through the years!
When Kerri released her latest [This & That: All Hallows Eve] kit, I knew that the coffin would be the perfect accent for the layout where my kids are dressed as vampires!
For my page I used 9 KBS die cut designs and 1 KBS photo template! I mixed and matched designs from several kits to get just the look I wanted for my page.
- This & That: All Hallows Eve ("carpe noctem", coffin, bats, moon, pumpkin, fence)
- Subway Art: Halloween ("there is no escaping")
- This & That: Halloween (gravestone)
- This & That: Autumn (leaves)
- Picture That: Squared (photo template)
For my page, I ungrouped the Halloween Subway Art, keeping only the phrase, "There is no escaping" and positioned it in the Silhouette Software using the Grid feature so I could make sure it cut exactly where I wanted it to. I ran my 8x8 sheet of patterned paper through my machine giving me the negative part of the die cut image. I backed the phrase with scraps of patterned paper.
Next I layered on all my die cut pieces, creating a fun Halloween "scene" for the left side of the 2-page spread and used an 8x8" photo template for the right side of the page, completely filling it with photos from the night.
As always, I added "shadows" to my die cut pieces by layering them over a cardstock piece cut the same size but slightly offsetting the patterned paper. This really helps the die cuts to stand out especially when you're layering so many like I did on this page.
I kept additional embellishments to a minimum as the die cuts were embellishment enough for this fun page!
