Boo Crew on a Road Trip and Under the Sea

I did three border sets for a swap hosted by jknorp on SCS. It was a Cricut border swap so some of the elements had to be made using the Cricut.

My Boo Crew halloween border set. These little guys are so cute. I used the Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge for the cat, ghost, mummy, spider and treat bag. The title is using the Pooh font cartridge. I added wiggly eyes to the cat and a white gel pen for the spider's eyes. I chalked the mummy with a brown color chalk to show the wrappings cuts. For the treat bag I first used the cricut black marker and then cut it out. I cut a narrow wavy strip for the spider to hang from and embossed it with silver embossing powder. I double layered the title .

The Jewes of the Sea border set looks better IRL. The paper I used for the shells, sea horses, coral and fish is shimmery, which doesn't show up in the photo. The wave on the border and one photo mat and the fish are from Paper Dolls for Everyday. The shell, sea horse and coral are from Paper Doll Dress Up. The title is the Alphalicious font. Of course the sea horse and fish needed wiggly eyes.

I love the paper I used for the Road Trip border set. I added buttons on one end of each border. The car, plane and pillow are from Paper Dolls for Everyday. The suitcase is from Paper Doll Dress Up. The journal box is from the George cartridge. You wouldn't think of a pillow for a road trip set but I always take my own pillow when I travel. I used the cricut markers for the pillow but messed up and unloaded it before I cut it. I re-loaded the mat and then cut it but the cut was slightly off. I actually like how it turned out though.
Thanks for stopping by to look at what I've been doing. I have 3 more swaps to finish over the next 3 weeks so check back and see what I have created for them.
