Too Cute Too Spook

Hi, it’s Maria again—before I get started I thought I’d share a picture, just for fun, of me with Joy and Melanie at CHA summer at a Cricut Circle event! So much Fun! Thank you to everyone for all the wonderful comments yesterday, you made me feel so welcome!

Here is a layout for you using some Mini Monsters! When my dog, Hari, was a puppy three years ago he was so cute, now he is a real MONSTER!!


Although I designed this layout on the Gypsy, there is no welding so there will be no changes if you don’t have one. But, if you do have a Gypsy I have included the file for you HERE.

Monsters—Mini Monsters, all layers cut at 2.25”

Circle—Plantin Schoolbook 10.75”

Spider Web—October 31st 5.75”

Spook—Happy Hauntings 4.5”

To Cute To—Happy Hauntings .50”


Tulle was used around the edge of the circle. This time I added Scor-tape to the back of the circle and using a pleating method to adhere the tulle. To add the faux stitching I poked holes with a paper piercer and connected the dots with a black marker—a quick and easy way to do stitching.

Pop Dots were added behind all the monsters and the date tag was cut by hand edged with a Fiskers scissors, remember those??


If you have any questions about my projects this week just leave me a comment here or contact me on my Blog Here. Tomorrow is Wild Card Wednesday....
