Trick Or Treat Sign

I designed this for Tracy's Blog Craft Junkie Too!  Make sure you head over there and check out the projects the other gals did today :)  I've been a follower of hers for a long time, and am honored she's letting me be featured on her very fun and fabulous blog.

I designed this sign to hang on the door for the trick or treaters.  I wanted to show everyone that you can create great Halloween projects with the older cartridges too, and not just the fun new ones coming out :)  I love a new cartridge as much as anyone else, but sometimes I like to remind myself how many great images I already have and how versatile the cartridges can be.

I cut the shape for the sign out from Ashylyns Alphabet.  It was designed to be a frame, so I hid the inner contour to get just a basic shape.  It is cut at 5 inches.  I cut it once from a cereal box, and then again in some paper from the DCWV stack Midnight Spell.  I used Deep Plum Glimmer Mist all over it, and then inked all the edges with black.

I cut the letters from Ashylyn's Alphabet at 1 inch.  I ran them through my Xyron twice, once on each side.  I glittered the front side with Martha Stewart glitter, and then adhered them to the sign. 

The bat is cut from Paper Doll Dress up.  I used the actual height (or real dial size) feature and cut him at 1 inch.  I used a white gel pen to trace the lines the Cricut made, and then added tiny googly eyes.

The candy is from Doodlecharms, and all comes together as one cut, which I made at 5 and 1/2 inches.  I used a white gel pen and Diamond Stickles to decorate the candy, and I also used a red marker on the Tootsie Roll.

Very nice job! I love the colors and the glitter is going to pop with the front porch light on! The tootsie roll is really cute...great idea!
