Layout #62 - From Screen 2 Scrap





Whew, making it in just under the wire for this one for the From Screen 2 Scrap October challenge. The inspiration movie poster is from "Psycho", and for extra points we are to use a silhouette of a person (witch - check!), a house (4 and a half houses - check!) and a split title (check!). I started this layout at the Creative Accents crop a couple weeks ago, but didn't finish the journaling, stamping, or embellishments. At first I thought it looked okay as it was, but then I decided it needed a bit more. So I went hunting. Have you ever considered using digital images or stamps on your layouts? I challenge you to do so, because you can always find exactly what you need if you know where to look. For example, I found the witch image at Graphics Fairy (incredible vintage images for just about every possible occasion!) and the wonky houses were listed at Free Digital Stamps under "houses" (there's new stuff there every day!) I printed these images on photo paper, but you can use cardstock too, and you can resize the images to suit your needs. Give it a try, I triple dog dare ya!

Well, if Nolan ever stops ripping around with the puppy and gets to bed, I can start date night! I borrowed season 1 of "The Tudors" from the library - woohoo, the excitement never ends at the McCleary household!

Supplies: Echo Park patterned paper, Close to My Heart stamp set (Thriller), ink, and cardstock, unknown die cut and spider web trim (love that stuff!), Graphics Fairy and Beyond the Fringe images, Creative Memories pen

P.S. - did you use orange on a project this month? You did? Well, link it up at Creative Accents Challenges Blog for a chance to win big!!!

  9. Great Halloween layout Roxy! We don't really DO Halloween here (I know, I know, now you feel sad for us don't you, just like when I told you that I had never been to a baby shower!)but it looks like fun! Thanks also for the tip about the digi images, just in time, one of my online class prompts asks us to explore digital images and use one on our LO!
