You Say I’m A Witch

I make no secret of the fact that I love anything witchy and Halloween related (but I am definitely not Wiccan, just FYI). So when given the brief by UK Scrap Addicts to use black cardstock, my mind immediately turned to a quote I had seen a few times around Pinterest and I turned it into our “You Say I’m A Witch” cut file.

Because my photo was facing to the left, I wanted the writing over to the right so that I was facing into the page so I just moved everything over. Then I trimmed a bit off all four sides so that I had room for a border – using a black background doesn’t mean I can’t add some colour and pattern in somewhere right?

I layered up the photo using the gorgeous Simple Stories Vintage Halloween collection and then tried to squeeze in as much embellishment as I had room for!

I absolutely adored the little witch die cuts in the ephemera pack so I had to use one of those to go along with the theme. And of course I had to use some enamel dots to finish off with too. I actually had to redo this layout after a huge glue spillage (you might have seen my post on Instagram) so I’ve learned that even dry clear glue will show up on black cardstock. And it’s also really hard to photograph because it shows up any area that’s not totally flat! I liked using it though and I will try and change things up again and use black as a main colour again… just not too soon…

With love and colour x

Due to ongoing health and personal issues, I’m afraid I am closing the shop for 6 months.  I very much hope to be back but I will only be able to judge this once I have gone through the next few months.  All outstanding orders will go out next week (commencing 15th June).  I will be keeping the blog side of the website going and I may pop up on social media sometimes but I may have to take a fair bit of time out while I process everything and work through treatments etc.  I know that particularly my pre-cut customers will be disappointed and I am so sorry to let people down but sometimes being strong involves having to give something up.  It’s not been an easy decision I can tell you.  Thank you so much to everyone that has supported me in the last 4 years, in particular my wonderful design team.  Seeing my designs on layouts capturing people’s precious memories is something I will always treasure.  Best wishes xx
