Spell Bound

My all time favorite Holiday is creeping in slowly and I’m getting less and less time to make spooky decor…..Oh the horror!!!

Luckily there is still time and today I want to show you the latest creepy project: The Book of Spells from the JGW Steampunk Hex Kit from SVG Attic:

For this awesome “book” I used AC Cardstock in Black, Plum, Olive and Sand along with patterned paper from Basic Grey – Eerie.

I distressed the edges of the book along with the front panel. I also cut four of each corner, glued them together and applied gold foil.

I used the skulls from the Mourner’s hat from the JGW Raven Quest Kit also from SVG Attic and added some small black gems as eyes.

I made a small hole and placed a brad to function as a lock on the closure tab. Finally I added a small metal key in a chain to the upper right corner decoration and added some black crushed glas glitter to the pentagram.

This book is originally supposed to function as a gift card holder, but I figured I use it as a hidden candy stasher 😀

That way I get to get my share of the goodies before they’re all gone 😉

Thanks for visiting today and please remember to leave me a small comment on your way out ❤

Halloween Countdown….

….well if we can have Christmas in July, we can certainly also have Halloween in July!

For the past week (or so) I’ve been playing with the brilliant Halloween 3D Pumpkin Stack Countdown from JGW – that is when I haven’t been chasing Pokémons or battling in Gym Raids with the kiddos and Hubby. 😀 This was a ‘UGE project but so much fun – I don’t recommend it to beginners but if you’re somewhat experienced in paper crafting, I say you must make it! (Get it here or here )

For the pumpkin I used AC Cardstock in Squash ( 😀 ), Chestnut, Oregano, Boysenberry and Black. I also used some wood patterned AC Cardstock in Chestnut along with patterned paper from Basic Grey – Eerie Collection (an oldie but goodie)

I inked al edges with a dark brown inkpad from Prima and used some small metal handles instead of eyelets. Finally I dotted the numbers and the Medallion with Nuvo Glitter Drops – Midnight Sky and tied a ribbon in the Medallion and around the stem. I found some spooky embellishment to hang from the top.

Here are some more pic’s of the Pumpkin:
