Scraps of Darkness *October Kit* ~ Ghoul Friends

Here is another page made from the Nevermore kit that I Guest Designed for. I made this to share in the blog challenge at There is an amazing prize if you submit a H-ween page by the end of H-ween day, one random winner will be chosen to win the September Simply Steam Punk kit!!! Be sure to check it out...
I really wanted to keep this page pretty and girly with a little bit of spook. This kit really has so many options to chose from. Everything you see here is from the kit except for the letters. These are my girls and their friends at our H-wen party in 2009!!!

Here is the elegantly spooky flower with pretty bling. The skull shown here is a stamp.

Here is the sparkly tulle that came in the kit. I tried to pleat it to add a little bit of charm to the page.

Scraps of Darkness *October Kit* ~ The Living Dead

This is the fabulous Nevermore kit I received to use as Guest Designer. I love all the little embellishes that were included with this kit as well as the very versatile papers. Even the packaging is usable for a page, which I used the big skull shown here. The string, creepy gauze, alphas, cotton and tombstone came from my stash. This is my creepy husband in 2006 on H-ween.

I love these tiny skull beads. They work perfectly with the lacing I love to add to my pages. Teh web is made from cotton and I added a spider that came with the kit.
Here is the creepy cloth I picked up at my dollar store. I used mod podge to glue it down.

Stickles was used to create a bloody look on this skull I cut out from some packaging.

I used a cotton ball to make a foggy look for this haunted mansion.

Scraps of Darkness *October kit* ~ Spooky

I was honored to be the Guest Designer for this Nevermore kit!!! I just love the darkness that this kit provided along with many other styles. This is designed from the sketch provided by Mandy (Craftysprinkles) which I just loved. I thought these browns and black colors went great with my neighbor's picture taken in 2006 at my H-ween party.

I cut the crow from another paper to add more spook. The web and spider got Stickled. Aren't these Prima flowers wonderful!!

I used Smooch for these alphas and added these terrific little brads. I also did a lot of inking to darken some areas up some more.

Scraps of Darkness *October kit* ~ Fairy Tales

I am so thrilled to share that I am the Guest Designer for this Nevermore kit!! I just love it all. How can you not? I couldn't believe the endless gorgeous embellies that came along as a Romance add on. Here is my page of enchantment. The pearls, alphas and beads are from my stash. These are my girls dressed as a fairy and a princess in 2006.

I love this velvet about romantic!!! The metal frame corner is to die for.

Of course these Love Letter Roses are just breathtaking. I added the pearls just for a touch more romance. Even the Prima packaging had to be used.

This vine is exquisite and matched perfectly with these Guava Peony Brahms.

Scraps of Darkness *October kit* ~ Haunting Hour

I am happy to announce that I am the Guest Designer for this awesome Nevermore about being honored!!! It is full of so many opportunities that you just have to see it for yourself. INDULGE!!! This page is more crazy, funky and traditional styles all wrapped in one. The thread, black letters, ghost and clock came from my stash. This is my nephew, niece, brother and his wife at my H-ween party in 2005.

I cut this spider out, added Stickles and a pop up dot. I misted this flower with the awesome Shimmerz Spritz that came with the kit.

I loved making this web and adding these cool skull beads. I thought this title looked great with the haunted clock in the bg.

Vintage ~ Scraps of Darkness

This is from the awesome Simply Steam Punk September kit that I got to play with. I did this page for the Darkest Side challenge over at SOD. The topic was fashion. I am not big on fashion personally so I choose my Grandmother who was always dressing in the 9s. Even during the war, 1942 when this pic was taken, she was looking good. I did a lot of cutting, and added some lacing. The eyelets and ribbon are from my stash.

I inked with vintage photo stain.

I love these photo corner stickers.

Really fabulous designs to chose from on the papers, when you cut them out.

My lacing with eyelets. I have a tutorial from an earlier page on how to lace if you want to check it out.

Prom ~ Scraps of Darkness

I love this Simply Steam Punk September kit. The debutante line is so crazy and romantic. There are a lot of options to use from the can cut out quite a bit of images. I used the sketch by Mandy (Craftysprinkles) for this lo. This picture is my parents at their prom along with their senior pictures. (The metal heart and alphas are from my stash).

I tied their photos together with the metal heart and a little G45 sticker of Love.

That is the lovely stick pin that comes in the kit made by Mandy. These letters are TH grunge board that I sprayed with GM and used BG beads to decorate them with.

Some cut work and extra pieces of the strips I used on this page. The key is from G45.

Fly ~ Scraps of Darkness

This is the Simply STeam Punk kit from September. I think is is a lot of fun to work with. I personally love to use vintage photos with this style. I thought this picture of my dad in 1947 would make a great theme with flying. (The eyelets, buttons, alphas and pins are from my stash).
I used the BG beads for the peek a boo. The letters are TH grunge board, that I inked and sanded.

I thought these metal safety pins would look neat on this page holding papers together.

That awesome belt buckle is available in the SOD shoppe...not part of the kit.
