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 décor 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 ...

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 ...

Baby Layout with Leaky Shed Studio Swirl



Hi, I created this cute Baby layout of my niece for Leaky Shed Studio today.  I do not normally scrap with lots of blank space but I knew I wanted several elements on this page; so I thought a plain background would enhance the photo, chipboard and paper piecing.  Plus I wanted to create something out of my wheel house.

Tips and Techniques:


I took out a white piece of Bazzill cardstock and sprayed some blue to go along with the color theme.


I then prepared my LSS chipboard with a couple of coats of Pro Art gesso.  I let it dry between coats.


I wanted my LSS chipboard to be yellow to add a complementary color to my layout.  So I embossed the all the chipboard with the yellow first.  


Then I decided to add sprinkles of the chunky white enamel in order to soften the yellow and give the layout a more shabby feel.



After preparing my chipboard and base for my layout I started to add my cute embellishments and paper piecing.




I love that photo of my niece and had a great time creating this layout for Leaky Shed Studio.  I hoped you enjoyed it.
