Whoo Loves Halloween Layout
Designer: Lindsay Wahl

• Glue Arts Adhesive Squares, Glue Glider Pro Perma Tac, UCutIt Foam
• Echo Park Happy Halloween Collection
• American Crafts & DCWV cardstock
• EK Success Owl punch
• Cricut, Storybook & Paper Dolls Dress Up cartridges
• Quickutz, Instant Photo
• Bo Bunny buttons

1. Die cut photo frames, 3 owls and title/tree. 
2. Adhere border stickers to the bottom of the layout. Add “Halloween” title to layout. I used liquid adhesive on the smaller letters. Cut foam adhesive to raise the “H” from the page. Add spider sticker to the letter “H.”
3. Add “whoo loves” letter stickers to the page. Cut photos to fit the frames. Use the Pro to adhere photos and frames to the layout. Add sticker captions to photo frames.
4. Use foam adhesive to adhere the tree to the page. Use foam adhesive again to add the owls to the tree and the title.
5. Use star stickers and adhesive squares to add buttons to the bottom corner of the layout.
6. Add journaling and your layout is complete!

Last week we partnered up with Hero Arts. Designer Patti Milazzo has two cards that are absolutely beautiful! So we wanted to be sure you did get to see these...we're sure you'll agree...they are simply wonderful!
