Halloween Week ... Is There a Mouse In The House?

My next to the youngest grandgirl dressed as her favorite character for Boo At The Zoo...Minnie Mouse!  Creating this layout was a challenge.  I have no Mickey Mouse or related materials.  I am determined to use as much of my past Halloween supplies as I can.

This is Graphic 45's Magic of Oz collection.  Using the second side of the paper allowed me to create the Minnie Mouse layout.

I made the tab's by using Graphic 45's chipboard, turning to the back using another piece of the Magic of Oz paper and made more related tabs.
  • Glue the paper onto the tab.  Let it dry.  
  • Cut the edges closely.  
  • Use an emery board.(I use Basic Grey's for pieces like this) sanding the edges.  
  • Ink the edges and you have it.

Licensed websites have Disney clipart.  This is the site I got mine from:  Disney Clipart Galore.  That is how I was able to make the little Minnie embellishments. 

The "heart" paper is actually raised a bit with a piece of felt underneath....like quilt batting.  I sewed my design and you can see the slight puffiness of the paper.  It's a great effect.

Have a Fun and Safe day.  Make Memories!


  1. I really love this one. Love the color tones you used and the pop of the flowers. Thanks for the tip on the art work. Very cool!!!

  2. Another visual delight. Really like how you used the "b" side of the papers. One of the things I love about G45-their papers are always a 2 fer! And I see some really impressive fancy cutting!

  3. Adorable pic, awesome LO.
