The making of a Halloween Shape Book

Ok here is my start....first I sketch out my idea in my little pad of thoughts! Then I play around with cutting various sizes of characters to get the right size. The most important thing here is to make sure you mark each character with the size you did (cause if your like me and you "think" you can remember...) I also mark which cartridge I used. I use cheap cardstock to cut my template before I get to the real good stuff! Now I position each character on the page (I cut 6 sheets of rectangles...6" high and varying by 1" starting at 5" and ending at 10") and just secure it with some tape. So that is how i see if I'm going to like what I did before I cut from good paper and now I have a template saved!

Finished product will be posted when I am done!!
