Can you believe it is September already! I am super excited for all things Fall and especially Halloween! We love Halloween in my home and I love to create layouts of our October adventures! There are so many awesome Halloween products available in the A Cherry On Top shop! I really fell in love with the Halloween Market collection from Carta Bella designed by Jen Allyson! I love Jen Allyson's designs so much and she is the sweetest! This collection is all things Halloween and of course has a black and white stripe throughout the collection which I love!
I found this cute triangle banner cut file in my cut file box and I really wanted to back it with a lot of the papers in the Halloween Market 6x6 paper pad. When I get my Silhouette down I tend to cut a lot of cut files that I have purchased and saved. I keep them in a clear box so I can just grab a cut file and create when I am ready! This banner cut file is from Cut To You and you can find it HERE.
I really wanted to use this Halloween Market Night Sky 12x12 paper for my background! I tend to use white cardstock for most of my layouts but wanted to try something different with this layout and this is just the perfect paper for a background! Once the cut file was backed I used foam adhesive all over the back of the banner to pop it up from the background. This helps to add some dimension to your project.
The photo I am using on this layout is from Halloween last year! In our family we all dress up as a family and go out trick or treating! It is so much fun and people always stop us to take our picture! Last year we had fun and dressed up as Frankenstein, Frankenstein bride, a vampire, werewolf, mummy and a skeleton!
I used stickers from the 12x12 sticker sheet that comes in the Halloween Market collection pack. I typed out my date with my We R Memory Keepers typewriter and adhered with my stapler. I added some small bats around the banner and used the Happy Halloween sticker as my title! I love that I am able to showcase so many different pattern papers using this banner cut file. Here is a look at my completed layout.
Thanks so much for stopping by The Cherry Blog today! If you are interested in this collection you can check it out HERE! Have a wonderful day!
