New Foxy Midori Paper Clips and Helmar

Hi, today I would like to debut my NEW Foxy Faux Midori.   Yes another faux midori my daughter loved my last white and black midori so much she hi-jacked it.  Now I decided to make a standard size faux midori (5 x 8.5) with my foxy pattern purchased over on Etsy (The pink cow boutique) for myself.  I decided to go bigger because I carry a suitcase as a purse.

Please go on over to Helmar today and check out my post featuring Helmar 450 Quick Dry adhesive

I bought some cute buttons from Button Galore that went with the fox / forrest theme I was looking for, got out my button clippers and voila.  So easy after that.  Be sure to back up your buttons and paper piecings with felt to not only secure your paper clip to the button using of course Helmar 450 Quick Dry adhesive but also for a finished look.

I also made a cute Paper Piecing Fox and it is really very easy.  Draw your "model" then copy your image and start taking the image apart in pieces and start putting them back together in layers :)

I think these cutie  patootie paper clips came out so cute.  Yes I did buy one foxy paper clip from "The Creative Bee".  

Thank you for stopping by my small end of the blogger.  Happy Scrapping and Planner making.

New 2016 Travelers Notebook Fauxmidori and Helmar!

Happy New Year!  

One of the rituals I have every New Year is to get a brand new calendar!  This year I am trying out the Midori Traverlers Notebook system.  I happened to come across the "The Reset Girl" you tube video on Midori 101 and discovered the Midori for the first time.  I had no idea about this planner system, apparently I was living under a rock. I had no idea about all the planner addicts out there?  Wow, I have always had a planner since I was a teenager and started hoarding paper.  I currently have a Franklin Covey and several Filofax but the Midori system really spoke to me.  I love the way that I can "custom" my planner.

So I went on to Amazon and bought some of the Midori notebooks, and basic supplies such as pen holder, rubber bands etc.  Also you can buy moleskin notebooks at Target they only have certain sizes but you can buy them in packs of three.

OK, so now I got ready to decorate my planner notebooks with Helmar.  For this project I used the Helmar Super-Tac and also the Crystal Kote in Matte.

I then prepared my Traveler's Notebook Books with gesso and stencils please go by the Helmar blog and see more details in the preparation process.

For this planner I am using two Notebooks and my 2016 Monthly calendar.  The turquoise Notebook is for my "brain-dump" important things I should remember such as birthdays, codes, goals, book list, movie list, etc.  The stamped and gold Notebook is my "Bullet Journal."  I personally use the bullet journal as more of a "To-Do" list versus the standard bullet journal method.  Maybe later I will get into the bullet journal method.

One of the things I like about this Traveler's Notebook system is that I can decorate and use my Notebooks any way I like.  For instance I am also working on a "Sketch-Journal."

Now for the cover.  This is my "Fauxdori"  they call them faux because this is not the original leather midori.  This one is made of fabric which I find ADORABLE.

I purchased the cute panda paper clip from 1 creative bee on Etsy.  The cute flower paper clip I made myself using some of Helmar's 450 Quick Dry Adhesive.

I am so excited to start working my new calendar.  I will keep you updated on my progress.  Thank you for stopping by ...   Happy Scrapping

Decorating for Christmas with Helmar

Hi, the Holidays are in full swing and I got with the program and made this cute door hanger for my guest room to welcome family.

This cute door hanger is featured over at the Helmar blog today, please go on over and say hello. Also my design team mates are getting very creative this month so you will want to browse for ideas.

For this project I chose two specific adhesives from Helmar

To make this project I started off with a wood plaque I bought at Michaels.  I then painted it white with acrylic paint and put down a layer of gesso using my crafter's workshop swirl stencil

I then used Helmar's 450 quick dry to adhere my paper, cheesecloth, chipboard and transparencies.  I used it because it dries very quickly and once dry will not come off.  Its good for adhering to gesso like below, wood, heavy items

Next I used the Tacky Craft glue because I needed a thick dry clear glue for my beads and glitter.  This glue allows me to embed the beads and add more layers to give it full coverage

Thank you for stopping by today, I wish you all the best this Christmas

Crafter's Workshop stencil (TCW156), Michaels - wood plaque, Liquitex - gesso, May Arts - ribbon white polka dot sheer, Reminisce - paper (santa's workshop), Tattered Angels - transparency, Stampendous - beads, glitter, Little Yellow Bicycle - chipboard, Misc: cheesecloth, fabric snowman, snowman charm

My Pumpkin Table Decor and Helmar

Hi, it's my turn over at Helmar today and I created some cute home décor pieces.  I am lucky enough to have a Home Goods and a Joanne's right next to each other so I did a little shopping.  I bought the paper-mache pumpkin at Joanne's and the adorable square all wood pumpkin at Home Décor. 

I decided to decorate them using Helmar's Decoupage and also Crystal Kote Gloss Varnish.
They look great on my dining room table and especially when my family dropped by.

Below are some photos of my process but for more extensive photos please go on over to the Helmar blog today and take a look at my post.  Let me know what you think.

Veteran's Day Card

Hi Everyone!

Today I have a card featured at Helmar.  Please go on over and say hello.  As you know tomorrow is Veteran's Day and I wanted to create a patriotic card using Helmar Adhesives.

I knew I wanted to use an American Flag so I went out and bought Tim Holt's "Flag Sketch" stamp and used Stampendous red embossing power to emboss the image on my card.

I fussy cut a soldier image that I found on the a free clip art site and I die cut some flags out of navy felt.  I glued this all together using Helmar 450 Quick Dry and lifted the soldier off my card with Helmar Zap Dots.

Thank you all for stopping by - please go on over to my post at Helmar where I have posted more photos.

Happy Veteran's Day to our American Heroes
