Halloween Scrapbook Layout

I have gotten away from scrapbooking and have decided I really want to get back into it since I have 3 beautiful grandchildren now. So I decided to start with a nice quick and simple layout from Halloween, that I could design in MTC and cut with my Zing. Photo Nov 17, 5 27 44 PM

  1. I used the Font named Stencil for the Happy Halloween title. I sized and placed it on my 12×12 mat where I wanted it to cut on my 12×12 black cardstock.
  2. Then I got the square shape and sized that to 6.3 X 4.3 and placed it where I wanted that to cut on my cardstock.   Screenshot 2015-11-17 16.21.36
  3. Placed my Black Cardstock on my mat and did a WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) cut.
  4. I used the Font named Passtime and typed To Cute To Spook!, shadowed it. I cut the shadow from the orange cardstock and the letters from black vinyl.
  5. Googled for a Black Cat image and did a Pixel Trace-shadowed the cat, printed it and did a Print and Cut using the shadow. Screenshot 2015-11-17 20.41.30
  6. Layered the clack cardstock on a 12X12 orange cardstock, added a black mat to the picture and three bat stickers I had and here is my nice simple Halloween Layout!!!!
