Boo to You - SFYTT


How about a little more October SFYTT inspiration today? Half the team is posting round 2 this week, so be sure to pay a visit to Amber HightBecky CarafaMegan Lock, and Kerry Johnson as well. Next Saturday, the other half of the team will post their Round 2 cards. Here's this month's sketch again:



I pulled out Verve's Boo To You set because a) it's adorable; and b) it's the October Stamp of the Month! That means you can snag this baby for 40% off, now through October 31, while supplies last. And with Verve's super fast shipping, you'll still have it in time for this year's Halloween projects.

I also finally broke into my Echo Park Chillingsworth Manor 6x6 pad, which has been nicely "marinating" in my craft room for weeks now. Love this collection! I wanted to do something fun with those tilted panels on the sketch, and went with a pennant border that I die-cut with Verve's Pennant Trim die. It looked kind of funny sticking out behind a solid rectangle, so I went with Verve's Rounded Scallop Frame instead. It met the sketch requirements, while letting more of the banner show through. The "boo to you" sentiment fit perfectly in Verve's new Mini Classy Label shape (two dies come in this set; I used the larger one here).

Hope you'll join us for the October SFYTT challenge. Entry form and "rules"are HERE on Jen del Muro's blog. A big thanks to Market Street Stamps for sponsoring the October sketch, too!

Have a great weekend!

This is such a classic Amy Sheffer card! Amazing...I would never think to use that wonderful ribbon AND gather it with the buttons the way you did. Not to mention the banner behind the open frame and the cute ghosts holding the sentiment. So inspirational on so many levels! *LOVE* your card!!!
