Purple Cow Projects AND RAK Winners!

Designing for Purple Cows is so amazing! Not only do I have the opportunity to work with top notch trimmers (and other great tools), I also get to work with some fabulous partner product!

For this layout, I used Cosmo Cricket's new Haunted's not just for Halloween! The papers paired perfectly with the rub-ons from Hambly and the strip of magic mesh added just the right amount of texture to the top of my photo. I inked the edges of the background, which is actually a piece of thin chipboard that comes in paper packs, with clearsnaps chalk ink. I used Purple Cow's Ultimate trimmer II to trim the chipboard to 12x12. The low-profile safety guillotine cutter is safe for little fingers to use, but strong enough to cut thin chipboard!

You know just about every project I create has to have some shimmerz on it. I sprayed the background with mudpie spritz and then used Olive Branch spritz to change the chunky rickrack from a mushroom color to the green that you see here. I also painted the foam thickers and the center of the pumpkins' eyes with gold glimmer blingz for a fun look!

I lifted this layout from Leah, a very talented scrapbook artist.

This card was just to fun to make! I used partner product from Core'dinations, Imaginisce, and glue arts to create it!

I ran a piece of black magic cardstock through my epic six using cuttlebug's spots and dots embossing folder. I then sanded to embossing to reveal the core color (this is one of my favorite features of this brand of cardstock). I used the B-sides of the Spooky Town line from Imaginisce along with the cutest Halloween stickers to form my sentiment.
