“You had the power all along my dear” – Glenda the good witch
Today our project is a themed Halloween layout! For me, the creative process works like this:
Step 1: Using a pencil and paper – sketch my layout.
Step 2: Recreate my sketch in the KNK Software. This helps me determine the scale of my die cut shapes.
Notes: I love to “frame my layouts and choose a sheet of 12×12 cardstock as the foundation for my page and layer a 11.5×11.5 cardstock as my “canvas.” I’m a big fan of die cut titles…if the project is something that I need to recreate many times I will choose a font that can be welded. This is a ONE and DONE layout, so I opted to work with individual letters. A brewing caldron with witch shoes was the perfect compliment to my cute witch photo. I create all my cutting files by scratch using a node by node method (please review my prior posts if you need direction on how to do this.)
Step 3: Add photo(s) and embellish! I used a striped straw as witch legs and tucked them into the separate top piece created for the cauldron. I glued witch shoes to the front and back sides of the shoes and tied bakers twine around them.
Step 4: Embellish more! I cut doubles of each bat and secured the first to the page and added the second one directly on top using a foam pop-dot. I bend the bat wings and added bling for eyes.
I keep my 15″ KNK Maxx settings at Overcut 15 & Trailing Blade 20 because I only use my machine to cut paper.
Please visit the KNK Gallery on my website to see more projects that I have created using my Klic N Kut.
