In case you haven't checked out the Kit of the Month page yet this month, we're all about Scaredy Cat this month! Get a jump start on this year's Halloween projects, or (like me) catch up on scrapping some pictures from previous years.
One of our neighbors has a birthday near Halloween, so she has a costume party every year. This was a 70's theme to celebrate her 40th.
I used a sketch from Scrapbook Generation, but changed these up some based on the papers I had and what I wanted to focus on. I had only small pieces of the large pattern left, so I used that for the end strips, and the smaller pattern for the large section even though the sketch called or them the other way around. I also used Thistle cardstock for the remaining panel, rather than another pattern, because there is so much going on in the photos. Finally, I substituted Pear cardstock strips where the sketch called for a striped pattern, so I could pull in the green. (I wanted to focus on the picture of me and my hippie friend, lol.)
For my title, I used "Groovy" from the Groovy Times Cricut cartridge and the curlicue font from the new Artfully Sent Cricut collection. And of course, I inked the edges of everything.
I simply used cardstock stickers from the Scaredy Cat Complements to embellish the layout, and added strip journaling as suggested by the sketch.
