A Graveyard Smash...

...the MONSTER MASH...
(creepy door opening)
It's Monster Mash Release Week at Imaginisce
 and I'm super excited to be sharing the projects that I 
crafted with it.  If you haven't seen the full collection of Monster Mash,
just stroll on over to Imaginsice!  I love that they've stuck with the traditional
Halloween colors and added in a bit of dusty teal blue and green. 
As with all Imaginisce collections, cuteness abounds :)
For this I started with a plain 'ole inexpensive 3-paned wooden plaque.
After painting the wood black, I added a square of patterned paper in
place of a photograph and began embellishing.

Imaginisce Die Cuts are so generous in size and can easily be layered
with other matching elements such as pieces from the Sticker Stackers or 
Canvas Stickers.  Don't be afraid to remove (gently) the witch's shoes from the
sticker and try it out somewhere else...I just add a little dab of glue to the 
foam dot and you're good to go!

And you know how much I love my leaf punch...I used it here along with
a few Brad Daddies and die-cuts.

 I glittered BOO chipboard letters in a purple/silver mixture.
Wanting a soft touch, I tied on chevron ribbon bows to the eye-hooks between
each panel and also at the top for the hanger.

This HUGE bat die-cut is all you need at the top!
He's utter perfection...who couldn't LOVE a face like that?

For my layout I followed the gallon-quart-ounce theory.
In design it it good to remember to keep things in proportion, whether it's color,
photos or embellishments.  The dominate color is purple (gallon), followed by
the blue (quart) and then the green (ounce).
The main focus of embellishments is in the bottom 1/3 of the page,
as well as at the right vertical 1/3 of the page.
Proportion helps the flow of a layout, gives rest to the eye and
keeps things pleasing to the viewer :)

Aren't they the cutest parade of characters?
With the exception of the sticker letters and Thickers, everything that
I've used can be found at Imaginisce!

So glad you've stopped by to see my contribution to 
I'm sure that there will be many other projects to follow as I 
won't be getting enough of this collection any time soon :)


  1. That door hanger is adorable! That layout just rocks! Your design is so fun and talk about cuteness! Love it!:)

A SN@P December Daily

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee! Isn't this just the greatest idea, ever?  (scrapbooking wise, anyway) Welcome to my contribution to the  SIMPLE STORIES  DECEMBER DAILY BLOG HOP I'm so glad that you're joining us...I can't wait to hop around myself and see how the girls have decorated their SN@P Albums December Daily style :)
**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
