Wow. Do you like the new look of our blog, or what? Our Creative Genius Emily has been busy, making our blog a little more organized. Take some time, and click around. Hopefully you will find yourself right at home, because I have your seat waiting and a nice warm cup of hot cocoa waiting for you! (Yes. Can you believe it is snowing in Utah. Ick! Oh and stay tuned for a VERY exciting feature to our blog that should be popping up soon!)
I am SO excited about Today's Steal, the Echo Park Halloween Collection. That's right. ECHO PARK! Can you believe that Miss Melodee worked her charm and brought to us the ever amazing and oh so sought after, Echo Park. Yup. She gets a high five, a star on her forehead and a 44 oz. Diet Mt. Dew for that one!
I know we have seen our fair share of Halloween goodness around the halls of ScrapbookSteals, but MMMMMMMMM..... I am totally in awe of today's kit. I wasn't quite sure what I was going to scrapbook for this weeks Mojo, and was going to do a one pager. However, these papers were screaming so much fun to me that my one pager turned into a 2 page, 6 - 4x6 photo layout.
I LOVE the patterns of the Echo Park Halloween Collection. I admit, I'm deathly afraid of scrapping with nothing but patterned prints, yet the small prints on this collection didn't seem to overwhelm my simple style. Of course I am so in love with the dots, stars, webs, stripes, skulls and witchy boots that it was really hard to decide what to use. I finally settled on a mix of 6 different sheets of paper. (Did you catch that...*I* used SIX different sheets of patterned papers!)
The stickers that come with this kit are so much fun. I think that Echo Park is BRILLIANT for combining small letter stickers and large letter stickers on the same sheet. I mean how often are you looking for a small letter sticker to coordinate with a larger letter sticker. No more need to search! It's all at your finger tips!
The other stickers in this collection are so much fun and the perfect addition to spice up a spooky layout.
Do you know what another absolutely FUN use would be for this kit is to create a 'milk box' haunted house. I've never seen one of these done before, but while I was taking a stroll through our Facebook Fan Page one night I came across this DARLING Halloween House made by our talented friend Tara Gross.
Can you not imagine how cute one of these houses would be using the darling skull paper in the Echo Park kit? Tara was kind enough to share more detailed images on her blog. Click here to see other amazing Halloween Craft decorating ideas from Tara.
Now for the exciting part of the MWM blog post. Our winner from last week!
Brittany Perry was the lucky winner chosen by Random.Org. It's a good thing she remembered to comment!
I love how Brittany turned her MWM #14 into a 2 pager and made the wavy lines a sidewalk. Seriously too cute!
Now don't forget that this upcoming Friday is our on-line crop from 6 - 10 MST. We will be having lots of fun, challenges and of course prizes. In fact, MWM #15 is your first official challenge for the online crop. Tomorrow I will post the additional 3 challenges so that you can get your scrappy caps on!
