Cutter's Creek Echo Park Blog Hop

Welcome to the Cutters Creek Design Team  Echo Park Paper Blog Hop! If you just came from Lori's blog you are on the right track! If you just stopped by my blog, you can begin the hop at the CCDT blog here. Here is what I made for you today (Sorry this picture isn't better, I had trouble photographing the full project).



For  my blog hop project I made a home decor project, a Happy Halloween sign. To make the sign I started with 3 pieces of chipboard cut to 5" X 7" and covered them with papers cut to size from the  12" X 12" Apothecary Collection Kit. You could easily size this down to a 6" X 6" square and use the 6" X 6" paper pack as well to make this. The next big decision was how to decorate them. For the top and middle layer I used cuts from the Happy Hauntings cartridge, for the bottom layer I used a cut from the Imagine Enjoy the Seasons cartridge and tons of ASI Kool Tak between all the layers of the cuts to provide dimension and depth to the project.
For my top panel I cut the word Spooky at 2" from white and black card stock from my stash. The background paper is of course Echo Park . I used the Graveyard cut from the Happy Hauntings cartridge and cut it and all the layers at 4". I cut the headstone layer from some light gray paper and misted it with some Slate and Dazzling Diamond Glimmer Mist. I also sprayed the fence with some of the Slate Glimmer Mist. I layered everything with pop dots. For the grass layer I mixed some Ultra Fine Flower Soft in Sage and Pine and adhered it with the flower soft glue. The orange piece for the gate sign is part of the cut. However the Beware that cut just wasn't working for me so I grabbed this Haunted sticker from the paper kit. The small pendant banner is also from the Apothecary Collection Kit.


 For my middle panel, I cut the Happy Halloween from the Happy Hauntings cartridge at 2". Both layers are cut from patterned paper from the Apothecary kit. I sprayed the bottom layer with the Slate  Glimmer Mist and sprayed the orange layer with some Dazzling Diamond Glimmer Mist. My spider webs were cut from the October 31 mini cartridge at 3" from some Silver POW Glitter Paper. The spider goes with the witches hat on the Happy Hauntings cartridge and was cut from the Charcoal Pow Glitter Paper. Again, I pop dotted between the Happy Halloween layers as well as pop dotted it to my sign for lots of dimension. The black and white lace looking border is also a sticker from the paper kit.



For the bottom layer I printed the haunted house from the Cricut Imagine Enjoy the Season's cartridge using the layers function. I pop dotted all the layers for tons of dimension. I added the Sage and Pine Ultra Fine flower soft to the grassy area under the house and adhered it with the flower soft glue. Finally I bound the individual panels together with my Bind-it-All and some black Bind-it-All wires.
