Lil' Monster Frame

Today I am on the Timeless Twine blog showing a project I did the other day with the "Happy Hauntings" cartridge. I love this cartridge! My favorite cartridges are Happy Hauntings, Pack Your bags, Campin critters just to name a few. Can't get enough of those! I made the frame on the Happy Hauntings cartridge but left off the outer layer that is a web. I cut this at 6.25" and I knew I wanted to use a pic of our grandkids trick or treating. I cut the little Monsters out from "Bump in the Night" on my imagine so I could fill the images with the colors I wanted. I used solid colors that were on the "Berries & Cream" cartridge.

I purchased some cute peachy keen stamps to use on the faces but didn't end up using them for this cause i cut with my E2 and couldn't hide anything. I tried once again to use Cricut Craft Room but forget about it! I got so frustrated because it wasn't recognizing my cartridge. I don't have patience to mess with something too long so after after 5 tries I used some choice words and just used the machine alone. I have a gypsy too but to be honest I just don't know how to use it well and my eyes don't like the small screen and that is why I was excited about CCR but I tell you I have designed so many things just for fun I guess because it doesn't like my imagine, doesn't recognize my carts in my E2 and I am always crafting after ProvoCraft has closed so no calling them for help.

ANYWHO....The monsters I believe were cut at 2.5". I used several colors of twine that are listed below with links to the store. I actually used several together that matched my colors of my frame. I love the way it turned out and the colors ended up perfect.

Use the links on the colors and visit the store and grab you some yumminess too. Lots of other goodies to pick from too! Thanks for stopping by!
