HIMCR #165 - "Super Scraps Saturday"

Hi, all my crafty friends and family!!!

Here it is the 2nd Saturday of the month
and you know what that means, don't you? . . .

That's right . . . not only is it time for a new challenge over at Hiding In My Craft Room, but it is time for Super Scraps Saturday.  I know I have mentioned many, many times BUT Super Scraps Saturday is my favorite challenge because it helps me make myself use my scraps . . . and I know we all have scraps to use. :)  

Our sponsor this week is Digi Digi Doodle.

For this week's inspiration project, I chose to use the 'spider web" digi and "Happy Halloween" digi sentiment from Digi Digi Doodle by Blue Moon Creation so I could do a layout. With the spider web digi, I cropped the spider out and then made a transparency overlay with multiple webs to use on the top half of my layout.  And I also made a title for my page by cropping part of the web out and inserting it under "Happy Halloween" . . . and then printed on another transparency.  And I used big scraps from my "Oct. 31" paper collection by Fancy Pants.  Here's how it turned out:

"Oct. 31" paper collection by Fancy Pants
"Oct. 31" chipboard by Fancy Pants
black w/ polka dot washi tape
lavendar washi tape
Helmars 450 Quick Dry Adhesive

Since my transparencies were 8-1/2"x11", I had to print two (2) of them and cut on strip off one to make it fit my 12'x12' layout and there would be five (5) webs across and three (3) webs down when finished with layout. Here's a close-up of part of the overlay:

(Sorry for the glare)

For the title, I fussy-cut it so I didn't have the "shine" on my whole layout: Here's a close-up of my title:
(Again, so sorry for the glare.)

Remember, you have one week (till September 20th at 2am MST) to get your Super Scraps Saturday projects in.  What will you come up with this week?  I can't wait to find out . . . I am so honored to be on this DT and see all the AMAZING projects that are entered each week.  Keep up the GREAT work!!!

Till the next time I'm up in the night.
