Happy Fall Tag and Helmar

Hi, my Happy Fall tag is being featured over at Helmar today.  This tag was so much fun to create.  I love lots of texture and layers so this tag expresses my style. 
Since I take extra care when I design and create, I want to make sure that my projects last. Therefore to ensure that my projects do not fall apart I use Helmar adhesives; on this project I used Fabric Glue and also Scrap Dots.

When making projects I tend to organize my studio in themes rather than manufacturer so when making this tag I picked up my "Fall" box which has bits and pieces of fall related products vs. manufacturer.  The box is also already organized with related embellishments and colors.

Here are some photos of my process below:

Thank you for stopping by today, be sure to head on over to my post on Helmar.

Happy scrapping ...

Peek at my New Studio and Helmar

Hi, it's my turn over at Helmar today so please go and take a look.  Today I am sharing a peek at my New Studio and also showing two new pieces that I designed for the Helmar Blog today. 

I am finally finished organizing and remodeling my studio.  I love it!  My colors are burnished grey, black, white and yellow for my highlight color.

I added an industrial chic look with the metal utility carts and rustic baskets for storage.

I had two spots in my studio that I needed to fill with some cute and handmade d├ęcor so I designed these two projects for Helmar.

Here is a one of my walls that I decorated.  I finally have a studio where I can display some of my work. I love the printer antique trays that I can store some of my stamps.  I also like that I have a lot of "V's" in my room LOL.  The steampunk canvas I designed with lots of paint, metal, stencils and the beautiful butterfly canvas my girlfriend gave me for my birthday.  The metal welcome and arrow on the wall I got at Hobby Lobby.

Below is a different view of my studio.  LOVE my work table.  I painted the legs grey.  I ordered the metal yellow stools at Target.

Last but not least I have a partner in crime in my studio with me.

Thank you for stopping by today, be sure to head on over to my post on Helmar.

Happy scrapping ...

Nursery Album using Helmar

Hi its Baby Album time over at Helmar.  I designed this cutie patootie mini album using Helmar Craft Glue and also Helmar Zap Dots.

I bought a cute wooden giraffe at Michaels and then I found the pretty baby paper.  I knew that using the Paper House 3D nursery embellishments would bring this mini album together.

I had a great time creating this adorable mini album - I loved it so much I am going to make another mini for a baby boy, so be on the look out.  

Thank you for stopping by and happy scrapping ...

Dad's Day Tag with Helmar

Hi, today I wanted to share what I created for Helmar!  I would also like to wish all those wonderful dads a Happy Father's Day!

I started this tag by spraying several colors on the tag and then I started layering ...

I used Helmar's 450 Quick Dry adhesive because its versatile and I can use it on both my paper and on my embellishments such as that cute owl button

I also used the Helmar Zapdots on my leaves and flowers for instant placement and attachment

Hope you enjoyed my post today and Happy Father's Day!

Journal Notes with Helmar

Hi, it's my turn over at Helmar USA today and I am sharing a journal I made to take notes of my ideas, sketches and/or to-do list.  It is small enough to carry in my art bag or even my purse.  Well I do carry a big purse ...

Rather than downloading a lot of photos I decided to make a quick video on youtube:

It is funny how you start off with one idea for creating a journal cover and it just morphs into something different.  Does this happen to you?  Well it helps when you are using good product and I love using my Helmar Adhesives.  I have been using this brand for years. 

Today I used:

This journal was fun to make and I loved doodling on my book and getting a little drawing in.  Below you will find the list of products I used besides my Helmar.

Thank you for stopping by today ...

Paper: K&Co., Basic Grey; Embellishments: Heidi Swap (resist ephemera), Paint:  Art Anthology, Ranger Inkssentials black Enamel; Spray:  Lindy's Stamp Gang, Tattered Angels; Gesso: Pro Art; Tools: Martha Stewart bone folder, Copic alcohol pen, Ranger, Zig Millennium .05 pen, Stabilo black, Stencil (Heidi Swapp); Misc: Beads
