Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you my Boo Sidekick Essentials Page.
To create my Boo Sidekick Essentials Page, I’ve used a variety of dies from the Planner Essentials Collection, the Sidekick Essentials Collection as well as a stamp from Charlene. You’ll want to read below as I share with you how to recreate my sidekick essentials page at home.
Step One. Die cut the page from the Sidekick Essentials 1 die out of a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Spritz water on the page and then spritz Dylusions Ink Spray in Squeezed Orange on the page.
Step Two. You’ll need the circle border stamp from the Background Stamp 3 stamp set. Apply Ripe Persimmon Distress Ink to the stamp and stamp three times on the page as desired. Reapply ink to the stamp as needed.
Step Three. From the Halloween Party Stamp set, you’ll need the bat stamp. Apply Emboss It Ink to the bat stamp and stamp on the page as desired. You’ll need a total of four bat stamps stamped. Reapply Ink to the stamp as needed. Sprinkle Molten Dimensions Black Magic Embossing Powder over the stamped bat images. Tap off the excess powder and emboss with a heat tool. Ink the edges of the page using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step Four. You’ll need a couple pieces of Halloween patterned paper. From the Sidekick Essentials 5 die, you’ll need the stitched rectangle and the plain rectangle. Die cut the stitched rectangle out of one of the halloween patterned papers. Die cut the plain rectangle out of the other patterned paper. Ink the edges of both rectangles using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step Five. Choose one of the reinforcements out of the Variety Reinforcement Pack. Die cut the reinforcement once out of a piece of black cardstock. You’ll need a total of six reinforcements.
Step Six. From the Sidekick Essentials 1 die, die cut the frame out of a piece of black cardstock.
Step Seven. From another piece of halloween patterned paper, die cut the arrow from the Sidekick Essentials 3 die. Ink the edges of the arrow using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step Eight. Die cut the word Boo from the Blackboard Alphabet Die out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Ink the edges of the letters using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step Nine. From the Halloween Party stamp set, you’ll need the cat and the pumpkin stamps. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to both stamps and stamp onto a piece of watercolour cardstock. Colour the two stamped images in using a waterbrush and the Watercolor Palette. Once the images have dried, fussy cut the images out. Ink the edges of the two images using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step Ten. Adhere the reinforcements over top of each of the holes on the page.
Step Eleven. Foam square the stitched rectangle 5/8″ from the left and 3/8″ from the bottom of the page. Use adhesive and foam squares to adhere the plain rectangle 1/2″ from the right and 7/8″ from the bottom of the page. Use adhesive and foam squares to adhere the frame 1″ from the bottom and have a 1/4″ over hang on the left hand side of the page.
Step Twelve. Foam square the cat to the middle of the frame. Foam square the pumpkins to the bottom right corner of the frame.
Step Thirteen. Adhere the Boo word to the left of the pumpkins as desired. Adhere the arrow below the frame as desired.
