Progressive Page

This page started as a 6X6 Whisper White with 3.5 X 3.5 Pumpkin Pie mat. The photo is cropped to 3X3. I used a straight edge ruler to draw the lines of my spiderweb with a Basic Black stampin' write marker and then attached the lines free-hand to finish off the web. Using the paper-piercing tool & pad from my Crafters' Tool Kit, I added tiny holes to the web. I cut a 3.5 X 1 inch piece of Basic Black card stock and used the SU! Scallop Edge punch up one side of it, attaching to the back of the Pumpkin Pie mat. One Kiwi Kiss tab, using the SU! Round Tab punch. The hat was inked in Kiwi Kiss and the little spiders were as well as Basic Black. I then used a small piece of the Kiwi Kiss/Very Vanilla double sided satin ribbon and attached it to the hat (adhesive works best and doesn't soak through the ribbon like glue). Stampin' Dimensionals were used to adhere the hat to Basic Black card stock which I free handed an outline of with my Paper Snips. Then a bit of steady cutting of the spiders and I adhered those to the page as well, some are popped up with Dimensionals.
and here's how to progressively expand your 6X6 page...

I started out with 12X12 Basic Black card stock, a strip of Pumpkin Pie (from my scrap box) which I punched 3 holes in with my NEW Crop-A-Dile (you can use a regular hole punch but I wanted to try out my CropADile, LOVE it!) I then punched out a piece of Kiwi Kiss with my Word Window punch and adhered it behind the holes. The cauldren was made using 3 punches, Wide Oval, Word Window & Horizontal Slot. Kiwi Kiss & Pumpkin Pie triangles were made with the 1 1/4" Square punch and then cut in 1/2 diagonally. The tag was inked in Kiwi Kiss and before I stamped it onto Whisper White, I colored over the spider with my Basic Black Stampin' write marker, huffed and then stamped. (Huffing is when you breathe on an inked stamp to re-wet the image before stamping) After backing the tag with the Lg. Tag punch in Pumpkin Pie, I punched a hole for my black elastic thread using the 1/16" circle punch and popped it off the page with Dimensionals. The lower left photo was backed in Kiwi Kiss and I mimicked the Basic Black Scallop Edge to pull the 6X6 and 12X12 together. The number 2's are Sizzix Fun Serif. Cute was made with the Sizzix Sizzlits Bounce font. The white spook letters are Making Memories. And I added a few more spiders to finish off the page. All stamped images are from the Eat, Drink & Be Scary SU! set and can be found in the Holiday Mini catalog
(The swirl above the cauldren is RETIRED and was from the Like it a Latte set and inked in Craft White)
Put it all together and viola! A fun 12X12 scrapbook page!!
