Welcome to this new monthly feature on my blog:  The CTMH V-Factor!  V stands for versatility.  We have so many wonderful products that can be used for more than one thing -- and this is the place where I'm going to show that off!

OCTOBER:  1 layout, 1 paper pack, 2 looks
This month, in honour of Halloween and the tremendous fun you can have being spooky, I have been featuring creative pieces using the "Scaredy Cat" paper pack.  BUT, I know Halloween isn't always a something you scrapbook.  So here are two layouts, both using the same layout sketch "Clear Dimension" from "Cherish" (one of CTMH's amazing how-to books) and both using Scaredy Cat papers, but to celebrate different memories.

Halloween Layout First

This layout is very Halloween and very fun, with lots of pop.  The colours and patterns work well to create a happy layout.  All you need is your photos!

Our new Cricut cartridge, "Artfully Sent" has some great accents and more that helped to add to this layout.  The spider and its webs are fun, and the Picture My Life pocket card made for the perfect title.  Embellishments, like sequins layered with stars, liquid glass, zip strips and stamps made for a spooktacular finish.

Then came love and a heartfelt layout!

Many of the patterns in the Scaredy Cat paper pack are versatile and don't have to be used for Halloween.  I've pulled 3 different patterned papers and paird them with some basic cardstock to create this warm look.  I added some random stamping to emphasize the "love" theme.

Once again, I tapped into "Artfully Sent", my stamps and embellishments to add finishing touches.  Liquid Glass on the dots adds texture and shine.  And pairing the slate and thistle ribbons just made it feel girly and coordinated.

The V-Factor
These layouts really show how versatile the Scaredy Cat paper pack can be.  It's great for Halloween, but not just for Halloween.  There's so much more!

And did you notice that both layouts used the SAME layout sketch?  It's amazing how our how-to books can be used over and over and over and you would never know, even if they are side by side.

If you already loved Scaredy Cat, and if you've now changed your mind and want to add Scaredy Cat papers to your collection -- email me to place your order at justscrapit.ctmh@gmail.com or shop online!
