Featuring Nevermore for Halloween Fun

Here is the first of many projects using the Nevermore paper pack. Nevermore (X7198B) is pretty Halloween inspired paper with deep purples, oranges, gray, and black. Is that not a juicy color scheme?

A little Artbooking Cricut cartridge images were used in creating this first September project. The layout is based on the Close To My Heart Creative Insider sketch -- they are so cool to help us create workshop and club projects faster, simpler, easier.

 I love using different patterns, here I took the round mini book pages from Artbooking and using the slice feature, I created circles for use on the layout. What do you think about circle photos under the title? That is what is floating in my head.

A few sparkly webs for photo corners and a border, remember when making a border, it is best to weld to pieces together so you don't get that stretched look.

The Halloween title needed a little pop, so a welded black cat finished it off. The green circle with the bats, would be a great place for some journaling and the green mats have a little black doodle lines - photos are 4" x 6" and 3" x 4". The circle photos at the bottom would be about 1 1/2" to 2".

If you purchase the products to complete this layout, I will send you the Nevermore Creative Customer Guide. Here is the link to my Cricut Design Space file, you will need the Close To My Heart Artbooking cartridge.

Products Used:
Nevermore Paper Pack (X7198B)
Pear cardstock (green) (X5764)

Calypso and the Split Panel Card

One of my Rockin' heART team members, Darlene Smyly, taught us how to create a Split Panel card at a recent class. It was so much fun!!

Here is a 4 1/4" x 11" top folding White Daisy card. Fold the card from the top in half at 5 1/2", you can score first before you fold.

Place the fold line on the 2" mark on your trimmer and cut. This will leave you with the 2" x 4 1/4" panel for the top of the split panel.

Take the leftover piece, 3 1/2" x 4 1/4", and cut 2" from the 3 1/2" side.  This will leave you with a 2" x 4 1/4" for the  bottom panel.

The remaining 1 1/2" x 4 1/4" piece may be used for the sentiment piece which will attach the top and bottom panels, which is what I did. I stamped one of the flamingos from the Tickled Pink (C1651) stamp set

I cut a Black cardstock mat for it at 4 1/2" x 1 3/4".

To dress up the card, I cut panels from Calypso (X7210B) pattern paper, my rule of thumb is to cut t…

A friend shared her version of a rocker card and I fell in love. A rocker card starts with circles. The base 5 1/2" circle cut from New England Ivy cardstock. A second 5" circle is cut from pattern paper, here I am using the New England Ivy pattern paper. 

The next pieces are the circles creating a place for the sentiment and embellishments. Here I changed it up a little. The original circles would be 3 3/4" cut from White Daisy covered by a 3 1/2" circle cut from the Beary Christmas poinsettia pattern paper. 
My version…
