For this contest I used the Frightful Affair cartridge. I cut all of my images using Cricut Craft Room. I used the ghosts, spiders, web, fence, font, bats and jack-o-lanterns from the cartridge. My favorite part of the layout are the bat's wings. I cut out an extra layer so I could curl them up for a more 3D effect.

CRICUT ®: WHAT WAS USED

OTHER MATERIALS NEEDED

  • Card Stock
  • Adhesive
  • MS Drippy Goo Punch
  • SU Dimensionals
  • Zots clear glue dots

STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS

Cut the alternate font on Frightful Affair at 1.5" leaving a small amount of space above and below your cardstock. Discard the cut out letters, but keep the cut out piece from the letter "P". For the background, cut a separate piece of cardstcok at 2.75" x 12". At the base punch out your design with a punch of your choosing. Adhere the cut out font piece of cardstcok and the saved holes from the letter "P" to the punched cardstock centerng it so to leave a small amount of space above and below so both colors are visible.
For the picture placements, Cut the first layer of cardstock for the large one at 6.5" x 4.5" and the second layer at 6.25" x 4.25". For the three small ones, cut the first layer of cardstock at 2.75" x 3.5" and the second layer at 2.5" x 3.25". I used a second sheet of cardstock behind my placements. It measure 6.5" x 12".
For the accents I cut spiders, web, ghosts, bats, jack-o-lanterns and a fence. I cut the ghosts at 3" height. The bats are 1.5" width (be sure to cut out double quantity if you want to curl the wings). The jack-o-lanterns are cut out as the set at 3". The web is cut at 2" and the fence is cut at 6.5" width.
For assembly, I adhered my picture placements with the ghost behind the top and bottom placers on the left of the page. I used pop dots for the placers so the ghost could easily fit. I adhered the larger placer directly to the page. I adhered only the center of the bats to the placers so I could curl the wings up for a more 3D effect. I used clear glue dots for the spiders and pop dots for the punched out jack-o-lanterns on the bottom right. The jack-o-lanterns from the Frightfual Affair cartridge are adhered directly to the page. I only adhered the base of the fence to the picture placer so I could easily fit the picture in. I also only adhered the corner of the web so I could slide the picture under it.

Step 1

Cut the alternate font on Frightful Affair at 1.5" leaving a small amount of space above and below your cardstock. Discard the cut out letters, but keep the cut out piece from the letter "P". For the background, cut a separate piece of cardstcok at 2.75" x 12". At the base punch out your design with a punch of your choosing. Adhere the cut out font piece of cardstcok and the saved holes from the letter "P" to the punched cardstock centerng it so to leave a small amount of space above and below so both colors are visible.

Step 2

For the picture placements, Cut the first layer of cardstock for the large one at 6.5" x 4.5" and the second layer at 6.25" x 4.25". For the three small ones, cut the first layer of cardstock at 2.75" x 3.5" and the second layer at 2.5" x 3.25". I used a second sheet of cardstock behind my placements. It measure 6.5" x 12".

Step 3

For the accents I cut spiders, web, ghosts, bats, jack-o-lanterns and a fence. I cut the ghosts at 3" height. The bats are 1.5" width (be sure to cut out double quantity if you want to curl the wings). The jack-o-lanterns are cut out as the set at 3". The web is cut at 2" and the fence is cut at 6.5" width.

Step 4

For assembly, I adhered my picture placements with the ghost behind the top and bottom placers on the left of the page. I used pop dots for the placers so the ghost could easily fit. I adhered the larger placer directly to the page. I adhered only the center of the bats to the placers so I could curl the wings up for a more 3D effect. I used clear glue dots for the spiders and pop dots for the punched out jack-o-lanterns on the bottom right. The jack-o-lanterns from the Frightfual Affair cartridge are adhered directly to the page. I only adhered the base of the fence to the picture placer so I could easily fit the picture in. I also only adhered the corner of the web so I could slide the picture under it.
