I used one of Gina's new Stand Up Sentiments for this spooky project! I painted the word and the base with black acrylic paint. Once that was dry, I applied several different colors of Stickles/glitter glue.

The ghost and pumpkins were all made with the Creative Paperclay! This was the first time I used this product and it was very easy to work with. This is an air-drying product so no need for a special oven. The eyes on the ghost are two brads. The pumpkins are all different shapes and sizes. Once I had the shape, I used my craft knife to make the groves in the pumpkins. The end of a paint brush was used to make the hole on the top to insert the stems into. When the pumpkins and stems were completely dry, I used Dried Marigold, Spiced Marmalade, and Pumpkin Pie inks on the pumpkins and Walnut Stain, Shabby Shutters, Peeled Paint, and Bundled Sage on the stems.

The chipboard ghost and web were painted with white acrylic paint. Black glitter was used on the spider. Black Soot and Walnut Stain was used on the hat and the bats. The lines on the hat were made by a very special tool - the pencil :)  I placed red paper on the back of the bats to give them a more creepy look.

Trim Organizers a Gina's Designs DT Project!

Hello everyone! I'm back with two more trim organizers. I did one awhile ago (click HERE if you want to check it out!) and realized one was not enough for my happy stash of lace. These boxes are quick and easy to put together! Once the boxes where assembled, I painted them both on the inside with brown acrylic paint.

Both boxes were covered with paper from the KellerKurtz & Company paper stack, lace and box feet from Tim Holtz. For the button borders, I first applied gesso. Once the gesso was dry, I embossed both the button border in the above picture with Aged Ivory Embossing Enamel by Stampendous. Once cool, pink twine was inserted into three of the buttons.

For the button border in the pictures below, I started out the same way. This time while the Aged Ivory was still in it's melted state, I added some sprinkles of Aged Rose Embossing Enamel and applied heat.

While the border was cooling, I worked on the five loose buttons (these are included when you order the button border!). I left the chipboard in it's natural color and just applied Walnut Stain Distress Ink to the outside edges. Pink twine was then inserted into all five. When the border was cool, I glued them onto the button border.

Now all I have left to do is put my lace on the paper covered cards!
