Scrapbook Garden Design Kit - Its Spooky


This layout is from Octobers design kit for the
Scrapbook Garden using the Teresa Collins papers.

Beginning with the Vintage Clocks patterned paper
I marked off a set of holes over two opposite corners
one at the top and one at the bottom.


Next I punched out some holes

Then threaded some twine through the holes
from the Vintage Finds Trims pack

Choosing my photo which I mat on
Bazzill Cardstock in Coal , i tore away the
bottom edge to leave a raggy finish

I punched a series of holes beneath the photo
to thread through some of the same twine.

Using the Bazzill Coal Cardstock I cut out my title
and some lace edging

which I placed at the top and bottom within
the threaded twine corners

The image was then mat again onto some
I die cut some spiders and bats from the Coal
cardstock and cut a slither of card to act as though the
spider was hanging from the lace

added the bats to the Cheddar cardstock

And that was my layout finished.

Although the image is one from my vintage
family collection unfortunately we have no idea
which branch of the family they are from, or sadly what their
names are.
Whenever ive looked at this picture its always made me think of Vampires
Wonder if they were? Wonder if theres a Spooky side to my family?
Mind you first thing in the morning I look quite
deadly before the make up goes on.........

Maybe best to leave that there lol
