A Halloween Layout to "Die" For

Greetings! I have a new Dreamweaver Stencils project to show you. This month, out theme is "To Die For," because of the fabulous collection of dies that Dreamweaver has to offer (and that collection keeps expanding!). I decided to go a bit more literal this week, and create a Halloween scrapbook page.

My daughter wanted to be a witch last year, and I have a fun witchy skirt that I made that I wear every October. So, we got all decked out and took some pictures. As far as the die that I used....I went with the BIG and beautiful Leafless Tree, and just used it as a background design.

The trees cut so easily and beautifully. I love using the new dies. I highlighted the trees (with the recommendation from my daughter) to add some silver glitter for some more visual interest. I think she was right.


And of course, I have a ton of wonderful stencils, so I needed to pull out a coupe for this page. I started off with one of my absolute favorites, Houndstooth, and added it to the outer edges. Them with glossy black embossing paste, I added a nice, long line of Crows. I had to do this twice to get the line of crows across the entire page. I just need to add a title, which will probably be on the left side. I hope you like my page! Please be sure to visit the rest of the "B" team, all listed below. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
