by Richelle Naeglehalloween page 2 layout made with creepy critter cartridge

I know it's too early for Halloween, however, when you see this new Creepy Critter Cricut cartridge you are going to want to start making Halloween Crafts as well! This cartridge was designed by Nancy Kubo, who also created the original Create a Critter and Create a Critter 2 cartridges and the Create a Friend cartridge. I absolutely love her designs and this cartridge is no different!

For these layouts, I started it as a two-page layout, but when I was finished I realized it would be good as a stand-alone layout. Remember that if you don't have this cartridge, you can try to substitute any number of Halloween Cricut cartridges.

Making a Halloween Layout

This first page: the tree and moon were cut out at 11.25" and the arrow sign at 4.5". For the Happy Halloween, I just used a font from my computer and had the Cricut Explore system write it on using the silver metallic pen. The ghost border is cut out at 1.38" making it the perfect length for a 5" x 7" photo frame.creepy critters cartridge layout project

For this second page the bat border was cut out at 2.4" so the border length would be 12". Oct 31st bat image was cut out at 4.5" and has 4 photo spots - three 3" x 3" photos and one 4" x 6". In all, this layout was pretty easy. The paper stack I used is called Haunted Hollow by American Crafts. I love these patterns.
