Halloween Decorations

Here are the Halloween decorations I made with my Silhouette Portrait this year:

Happy Halloween

I also tried a new technique with the “Something Wicked” phrase: print & foil! The phrase is a free Silhouette cut file and printable from Dawn Nicole Designs. I printed the file on black card stock, cut it out with my Portrait, added a couple extra spider webs, and then used silver foil to show off the words. I love how the silver foil looks on black card stock!

I don’t have the Heidi Swapp Minc. foil applicator, although I would love it if I did ;) Instead, I used a laminator to apply the foil to the printed phrase. There is a great post from Jennifer Mcguire Ink about using a laminator, and 4 other ways, to add foil to your crafting projects. Now I want to foil all the things :D

THE EASTER FEELING…

The Easter feeling does not end.
It signals a new beginning,
Of nature, spring, and brand new life,
And friendship, peace, and giving.
The spirit of Easter is all about
Hope, love, and joyful living.
