Halloween Mini Book - Part 2

Ok ... I did not work on the minibook as I had wanted to but I actually got a couple of the pages done. It is coming out thick which is what I wanted. So hope you guys enjoy it...

This is the first page of the mini book.

The pages are 6" X 12", and I did not want to use chipboard on each page, so what I did was i cut a Kraft colored cardstock, and since the paper from the kit is already cardstock, I covered the kraft cardstock with it, and then embellished it. The cuts are from the October 31st cart. Of course everything is inked and distressed.

It is still missing some ribbon which I will be adding later, since I just got them today.

This is the second page. The cuts on this page are from Happy Hauntings, except the bats from the October 31st cart. I tried to overlap all the images over the edge of the page to make it more creepy! (LOL). I inked the edges of the dark papers with white ink, and the lights with black inks. I did put some ribbon on this page, because I got some...

Third page this one is a combination of both carts and stickers. I also cut out one of the frames from Happy Hauntings, and I just cut the borders off of it and paste it on to the picture mat. I had to mat the cat because it was too flimsy...

The right border is from October 31st and just placed a ribbon over one of the edges of the border...

This is the fourth page of the album. The mat in the middle is acually the table top from Happy Hauntings, both bats are from Happy Hauntings as well. I just placed a mat with some ribbon, and the pumpkins from the sticker elements in the paper kit.  Again everything in inked around, I may add some stickles to the title later when the book is done or maybe to the bats.

This was the last page I did today, It is missing a lot of stickling, but I did ink the pumpkin. I cut the pumpkin twice in green and in orange. I cut the orange pumpkin and I pop dotted it on the green one.

The border of the page is cut using the weld function of the gypsy on the rectangle from George and Basic Shapes and the word BOO using the Happy Haunting letters. I cut an extra set of BOO letters in orange and inked it black and pasted it on top of the black cut outs of the page, the rest is just matting and organizing the layout.

I will be back tomorrow with the rest of the book....I hope you like it so far....
