Creative Memories Halloween Blog Hop Stop #5

Welcome to Spooky Stop #5 full of Monsters and more!

Are you ready for a couple treats?

Little Monsters will be out and about looking in windows and doors for a treat. 
Keep an eye out for them they are everywhere!

To create this border you'll need:
-Original Border Maker System
-Circle Weave Border Maker cartridge
-Bubbles Border Maker cartridge
-Black Cardstock for base
-Shade of Green
-Orange and Purple Cardstock

Using the Circle Weave Border Maker punch cut out borders; one in black, orange, purple, and green cardstock. Use the black border as your base; with scissors cut out circles from the green, orange and purple colors and layer on top of black strip, as shown in photo. Use the Bubbles Border Maker Cartridge to make eyes.  So easy but so cute! The gray and purple paper bordering border is from the Fall In paper pack in Going Gone area. 

Just when you thought it safe to come out,  now that the monsters are gone, here comes the bats and skeletons. 

To create this border you'll need:
-Original Border Maker System
-Circle Weave Border Maker Cartridge
-Filmstrip Border Maker Cartridge
-Grass Border Maker Cartridge
-Lace Scallop Border Maker Cartridge
-Midnight Star Border Maker Cartridge
-Shape Maker System
-Bubble word punch, no longer available to order 
-Year to Remember paper and stickers

To make the bats you'll use the Midnight Star Border Maker Cartridge and Bubbles Border Maker Cartridge. Use a Bubble Border Maker Cartridge and scrap piece of black cardstock for the base of body.  Use a 12x12 Black cardstock and cut out a border with Midnight Star Border Maker Cartridge on black cardstock, this will be your base to the layout.  Back with yellow paper to bring out the stars. The stars from the 'negative" space were used to create ears for the bats and the "negative" space was used for wings. Cut out a yellow circle with the Shape Maker system and mount the bats on the circle.

To make the Skeleton you'll use the Circle Weave and Lace Scallop Border Maker Cartridges. Cut out one punch with Lace Scallop Border Maker Cartridge and use scissors to cut out "hips", see photos below.

The head was free hand cut out and eyes are from Bubbles Border Maker Cartridge. The bottom of the "jaw" and shoulders along with the legs are the Circle Weave Border Maker Cartridge. The "ribs" and feet are made with the Lace Scallop Border Maker Cartridge. Cut a thin strip to make the "spine".
The brown fence was made with Film Strip Border Maker Cartridge.  To see how to make it you can view this post Filmstrip Fences There I also shared how to make a SPOOKY fence too!

The word October and numbers thirty and one, 31, is from the Year To Remember embellishments. The orange and white "banner" is from the Year To Remember paper pack.  Use Creative Memories black pen to create the stitching. The "clouds" were cut out with the word bubble punch on grey cardstock. This punch is no longer available through CM, it has sold out.
