Haunted House from Cricut Happy Hauntings Cartridge

I wanted to do smething for Halloween for the Cricut Club next week so I decided to do a Haunted House from Happy Hauntings Cricut Cartridge. My first mistake was to make it 11.5 inches high. Not a problem I had 24 inch paper but swapped to CCR half way through and forgot my sizing. and made all the parts too big. oops they did tell me anaesethics make the memory fuddled but I went back to the gypsy and my sturdy E2 and cut them again and voila here is my haunted houe. The house from the top of the spire to the ground is round 20inches or 50cm. It wont fir in a small box.

Used illuminate iridescent ink pad plus interference to get the "painted" effect

Sort of looks like its a bit dirty

CTMH WOTG Laughing Lola

Hi as many of you will know I have signed up with Close to my Heart as a Consultant. My kit duly arrived and with great excitement I opened it and inside was the Laughing Lola Workshop on the go (WOTG) pack. This is papers and embellishments and a stamp set that you can do layouts with. It also comes with a layout chart and how to cut everything. I am not that good at making pages as I need the theory behind what I am doing so scrapbook pages have always been a challenge. This one was still a challenge as it had vertical photos and one 6x6 on the 2nd page but I checked things out and came up with this alternative and am happy with the result. My water sprite decide to investigate the garden pond and I just happened to be sitting by snapping photos. These seemed to be just what I needed to scrap today.
I used the Laughing Lola WOTG the stamp amazing is from the stamp set that comes with it as is the flower. The photo corners I cut from the CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge they are on the decorative font layer in the last row. I showcased the vertical photo by using cream photo corners whereas I have used blue photo corners on the other pictures. The upper flower banner is actually straight it is the way the photo has been taken.

 Thanks for visiting.
