One of the more fun cartridges is the Monster Bash cartridge. Maybe it's just cause I associate it with Halloween, which is such a fun holiday, but I love this Cricut layout I was able to come up with, and I'm excited to see what I can come up with in the future (not to mention I'd love to see what you come up with). We have an excellent collection of Cricut Halloween cartridges. Check them out!.
Alright, so you can probably reverse engineer everything I did just by looking at it, but here are the details on this layout I made for my scrapbook:
This cartridge has some beautiful spider webs on it that, when you cut them out at the full mat size (approx. 11 inches), they can transform a plain colored sheet of paper into a custom beautiful layout. Without a lot of work or spending a lot of money on a pre-cut cardstock sheet, you can make the design a lot more dynamic and I think you will really like the results.
For this layout I used my Cricut machine cut the spider web out at 11 inches and the Halloween at 3 inches (note the Halloween is two separate image cuts) and then the 3.5 x 3.5 inches squares and one 5 x 7 inches square for all the fun Halloween pictures I’m sure to have. I love using ribbon, but what kind of embellishments do you prefer? Rhinestone gems didn't seem very Halloween-ish to me.
Save on Cricut cartridges and please share your own creations with us and demonstrate how to use the Cricut Monster Bash. Also, it's never a bad idea to have fresh replacements on hand, so save on Cricut cutting mats.
