My First ScrapbookPal Design Team Design-Mini Monsters

Woohoo! I am sooooo excited to show you all my first EVER design for the wonderful design team at SCRAPBOOKPAL.com! WOOHOO!

Project by Crystal Butler
When I received my first package from Scrapbookpal.com I was so excited. I opened it up and WOW there was MINI MONSTERS Cricut Cartridge! I was giddy! I wanted to use it in an unexpected way and this is what I designed.

1. Cut, score and fold Kraft card stock into a 5.5 by 5.5 square card.

2. Using green patterned paper (grid and pearlescent) cut five strips at 1 inch by 5.5 inches. Ink all edges using Chesnut Roan Chalk Ink.

3. Adhere three one inch grid patterned paper strips to the base of the card with ATG 1/4 inch adhesive.

4. Punch each one inch strip of green pearlescent paper with Martha Stewart Drippy Goo punch, ink edges and accent with Gelly Roll Stardust pens.

5. Adhere punched strips to card base, butting each to the grid paper using ATG 1/4 inch adhesive
6. Using the Argh cut on page 43 in the booklet I cut all the layers including the base shadow at 3.5 inches using my Cricut Expressions and 12X12 mat.

7. Assemble as directed.

8. After the main "monster" is assembled it is time to embellish. I used Fruit Punch and Black Diamond Stickles on this tongue and feet. I hand drew some tears and accented them with Glossy Accents, added a googly eye, medical tape and a band aid from our medicine cabinet.

9. Stamp sentiment "Get Well" and Red Cross with Black Stazon Ink, and Blazing Red Stazon Ink. Ink edges with Chesnut Roan ink. Adhere using pop dots. Adhere three pearls to bottom left side.

10. Ink all edges of card with chesnut roan ink.

Other supplies used:
Mini Glue Dots
Honeybee Scissors
EK success TweezerBees
Zig Chisel point glue pen
Queen and Company pearls
DCWV patterned paper
We R Memory Keepers patterned paper
ProvoCraft bone folder
