Halloween & Decorative Edges

Do you find using decorative edge scissors tedious and frustrating even though you love the look they give? If you do, you may want to check out the Creatopia and Cutz component. There are many different cartridges available for the Cutz, and I have used a couple different cartridges on my Halloween cards I'm featuring today. Here's a link to Beate's Tutorial, and to the main page of the SCS Product Review so that you may check out this feature of the Creatopia

Awesome Halloween cards! Love the colours and you are right, those edges sure do give a lot to a card! I'm hoping that new tool makes it's way under my Christmas tree or for my birthday this year! hehe!

Both cards are so cute, Rose Ann! Good use of those edgers, I must say! But what really struck me was your 2nd card - I see you put some kind of sparkle or something on the bats eyes - I can't stand it that's just so cute! LOVE that paper!

Wonderfully spooky!!! I love the way the trees turned out on the second card...wonder how you did that?

Awesome spooky cards. Now, Rose Ann, you may stop being an enabler anytime! (Just kidding) I would love to have one of these but it's too pricey right now for me.

Great cards, that Creatopia looks mighty interesting! Your creations for your son are so sweet...not a easy journey! We have a family member that was diagnosed at age three! She is now thirteen and thriving!!! Take good care!
