Teresa Collins Chic and Scary Layout

Hello, everyone!


I hope you have all had a good week. Those of you on the east cost of the the US please be safe this weekend! I was watching the evening news Thursday night and it looks like it could get kind of rough. I am sure you all welcome the rain, but all of the wind and severe weather can just stay in the Atlantic!

Today I have a layout I made using the Teresa Collins Chic and Scary cartridge. My favorite part of this layout is the little banner. I have seen so many people do something similar, so I am glad I was finally able to make my own version!


The paper is from DCWV.
I cut this scalloped circle out at 3 1/2" and stamped it with a Close To My Heart stamp (that is unfortunately now retired).
I cut the banner out at 2" and the scallops out at 1 1/2". The bat is cut out at 3/4", the witch and cat are cut out at 1 1/4", and the pumpkin is cut out at 1".
I cut the title out at 6".
The swirls are cut out at 2". I am not sure what cartridge they are from as I made this layout nearly two months ago. I really should take better notes!





Don't forget that we are giving away a fabulous OTT craft light this week!

How can you win?


1) Leave a comment under this post and all posts this week to maximize your chances.

I love the lay out, makes me think about Scrapbooking which I've only done 2 or 3 pages in my life. I've always been a card maker. Scrapbooking seems to overwhelm me with all the photos I have. But this layout is so cute and uncomplicated, it's giving me second thoughts on Scrapbooking. Maybe that light would be a boost in that direction!!!

I LOVE this LO. I love the banner, the black flowers, & especially the tiny criss-cross on the buttons!

My life would be a little more Chic (organization is always good) and a little less Scary (since things would be well-lit) if I won the Ott light!
