Happy Monday to you!  Jen here today to help kick off the Xyron Blog Hop.

Halloween projects are one of my all time favorite things to create!  Fall is just around the corner, so I’m here to share an early Halloween layout.  I used Quick Quotes new Halloween Paperline to create this “spooky” layout. 

QQ Halloween (2 of 6)

The paper lace that I used was white, so in order to match my layout, I inked the entire strip with Purple Passion PowderPuff Chalking Ink shown here:


Halloween Inking (1 of 1)

Here is the paper lace attached to my layout: 
QQ Halloween (5 of 6)


I also inked the bare chipboard spider and “Be Afraid” chipboard piece with the Purple Passion PowderPuff Chalking Ink.  To attach these intricate pieces to my layout, I ran both pieces through my Xyron Create-A-Sticker:


QQ Halloween (1 of 6)

 Here you can see one of the inked chipboard pieces attached to my layout.  I also colored in the spider with a black marker:

QQ Halloween (4 of 6)

A close-up of the color vellum and bling that I added to the border strip:

QQ Halloween (3 of 6)

I sure am loving this new paper line and the Xyron Create-A-Sticker made this project a breeze!

I loved the double layouts (but not the spiders - I don't even like paper or stamped ones.) Xyron adhesives are the bomb!

Now a follower! Love Xyron - isn't the tape runner fantastic??? I really like the idea of colouring the lace - so often you need a different colour than what you have on hand. Gotta try it!

Claire Spielman said...

This is such a great technique and you guys showed this to us at Scrapbook Expo. Took ALL your classes and now I color coordinate EVERYTHING with your amazing ink/chalks ! Love the way they cover with such depth and vibrance.
