Spoooookkkkyyyyy!! BOO!

I picked up the Halloween edition of the Cricut Magazine. (those things are EXPENSIVE!!) But, there were lots of fun ideas in it for the Holidays.  I came across the wood blocks and I knew what my next project was going to be!  Dalven actually went out to the garage as soon as I showed him the picture and he cut a couple sets of blocks for me.

These really were fun to make, and I mostly scrap-lifted -- I did change a few things. I added the silver stickles around the letters and thought it really made the letters stand out more.  The sizes listed on the cuts were not right for some reason, so it took me a bit of time (and scrap paper) to get the letters to look right for my taste. The paper on the background is from the "Haunted" kit from MME. I used Vintage Photo TH distessed ink on all the paper edges and also roughed them up with my scissors.
The cuts of the letters, the black cat and the ghosts are from the Cricut Cartridge "Happy Hauntings".
The rest is odds and ends from my stash - rhinestones, ribbons, buttons and stickers.

And here it is!!  I am soooo happy with how they turned out. I think I am going to make a few more sets, and see about putting them on Etsy! What do you think?

Thanks for stopping by!
