DCWV October Stackaholic Challenge Layout

Happy Thursday crafty friends,
Hope your day is going well! I wanted to share the layout I created for the October DCWV Stackaholic template challenge.

Here’s a look at my completed layout. I used the DCWV Neon Chic Stack for the green background paper. The DCWV Fall & Halloween Value Stack for the black multi-dot paper for the border. The Fall & Halloween Basics Stack for the black and orange heart paper for the picture mat. As this was for this month’s Stackaholic Template challenge, I followed along with the challenge.

Here’s a closer look at the cute little Kitty paper piecing from the PaperCraftingWorld.com  Carving Out Memories Cut file set. I did make a video on how I put him together. You can check it out HERE

Here’s a closer look at my trio of pumpkins. I did ink the edges of them slightly with my Autumn Terracotta mini ink pad from the Adventure Ink Pad set. You can also see in this shot a closer look at the cute little border of ric rac I added. I love to add ribbon and textile to my layouts where I can. Gives them a nice dimension.

This is a closer look at the candy border. I started with a strip of purple paper and then punched the edges with my Martha Stewart Punch. I then cut out several pieces of candy in different colors and then layered them on top of the border It was hard for me not to want to ink and chalk all these pieces, but I wanted to keep them simple and I didn’t have as much time. So I thought they would be good just the way they are.

This is a closer look at the cute little journaling tag. I added a bow of sheer purple ribbon and a cute little button. This a perfect spot for some journaling. The tag came from the DCWV Fall & Halloween tag set. When I went looking for the Eek a Boo stack almost a couple of weeks ago. Although it says halloween, the nice bright colors of assorted tags would work perfectly for so many other occasions…including birthdays. So I figured, I couldn’t go wrong with picking them up.
