Home Decor project for Helmar


Hello crafty friends, I am here with you today with this gorgeous home decor project for the Helmar Creative Team.  I used some gelli printed feathers to create these candle holders.  I am really pleased with how they turned out and think they would make a great gift idea or lovely around the home.


The inspiration for this project came from Birgit’s video on the Gelli Arts blog – check it out at the Gelli Arts youtube channel.  For full step by step instructions of how I created this project, please pop on over to the Helmar blog at http://helmarusa.typepad.com/blog/


Thankyou and hope you enjoyed this comment. I’d appreciate if you leave me a comment here and on the Helmar blog!  Have a great day!

‘Epic!’ and ‘Pinkfresh Planner’ for Shop and Crop Scrapbooking


Hello crafty friends, I am here today for Shop and Crop Scrapbooking with two different layouts using some of the fantatsic new products to Shop and Crop Scrapbooking. For this first layout ‘Epic!’ I used the https://www.shopandcrop.com.au/collections/vendors?q=Kinder%20Kreations Kinder Kreations chipboard for the heading and the Blue Ribbon https://www.shopandcrop.com.au/search?q=enamel enamel accents, now available in store. Just one tip if I may…remove your chipboard piece from the wider casing prior to applying the enamel accents. Otherwise it is a little tricky trying to get it out once dry! Lesson learnt.

For this layout, I used the enamel accents to create some shine and dimension for the chipbaord title, I stamped with it using the gorgeous https://www.shopandcrop.com.au/search?q=darkroom+door Darkroom Door Arty Triangles collage stamp and drew some free hand circles as background features. The enamel accents seem to be versatile and can be applied for many uses. Whilst the triangles are not seen clearly, I like the effect that the enamel accents has for background stamping.

For embellishments I used some of the emphemera from the Simple Stories https://www.shopandcrop.com.au/products/6529 So Rad collection. I also used a gelli printed circle I had from another project and the ‘Rad’ stamp set from Kellie Stamps. Some paint splatters were added to complete the background. The photo was mounted on soe patterned paper I had left over from previous projects (dont waste a thing!) – Indigo Skies and the Pinstripes and Petticoats ‘Lad Plaid’ patterned paper.

For the second layout, I used the https://www.shopandcrop.com.au/products/cropkit-1 May Crop Kit which is available in store NOW. You definitely don’t want to miss out on this one! When I saw the gorgeous paperclips in this kit, I just knew I had to created a planner layout.


The base of this planner page is the A5 new horizontal planner kit from Scrapper’s Delights. For more info on this, please check out my other blog posts. I printed the planner page on to coloured cardstock, then cut and adhered the Pinkfresh ‘Live More’ patterned papers. I then stamped the dates in black ink using the Echo Park Paper Co https://www.shopandcrop.com.au/products/throughtheyear-calendarstamp?lssrc=recentviews&lshst=search Through the Year Calendar stamp. I used the Puffy Alphabet stickers for the days of the week.

The die cuts in the Pinkfresh ‘Live More’ Crop Kit are foiled and so delightful! I used a number of them to decorate this planner page, often layering them together to create clusters.

Another alternative to washi tape is using your patterned papers in their place. I just love the XOXO patterned paper and used this across the top of the pages. The paperclips of course just add a little bit of bling and class to the layout.

Thanks for joining me for this post and hope you will indulge yourself in some of the new enamel accents or perhaps the May Crop Kit….go on, you know you want to!


Miss Lilly in the garden for Little Blue Button Stamps

LBBS 10 june

Hello crafty friends, Sarah here today with the gorgeous Miss Lilly in the garden digital stamp from Little Blue Button Stamps. This can be purchased in store http://lbbstamps.com/product/miss-lilly-in-the-garden-digi-stamp/.


To create this birthday card, I firstly created the background using Brusho Crystal Colour. If you’ve seen any of my work, you may have an inkling that I adore Brushos and just love the many effects you can get with them. I used the colours Alizarin Crimson and Violet, sprinkled on to a wet piece of cardstock. I then crinkled up a piece of cling wrap and sat it on top of the wet card. I left it to dry and then when peeling the cling wrap off the card, it leaves a lovely effect on top of the fantastic, bright colours. Let’s take a closer look…

The Lilly in the garden digi was coloured using Touch Five markers and Stampin Up blendabilities markers. I justlove the detail in this stamp and I could easily use it in varying sizes for a scrapbooking layout about my garden, pocket pages capturing pics of my yard or a number of card options – digi images are just so versatile! The sentiment is from the Kaisercraft Indigo Skies die cut emphemera.

I hope you enjoyed this project and will give Miss Lilly in the garden…or any of the Miss Lilly range a go in your next craft project.


Space Plants Planner Layout for Scrapper’s Delights

inspiration post

Hello crafty friends, today I have a fun planner layout for Scrapper’s Delights using the new horizontal planner kit and the Space Plants digi set.  This layout highlights that you can easily create a layout with the basics using coloured card and some coool digis.  If you dont have all the fancy inks and markers etc, this planner kit is still for you!  The Space Plants digi as shown below can be purchased instore at http://scrappersdelights.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=89_161&products_id=817

space plantsThe Planner base was printed on to coloured cardstock and stamping done with a number stamp I had in my stash and the Close to My Heart ‘Artbooking’ stamp for the days of the week.  I like to add in a couple of photos of my family and some little hearts and sentiment from the Frank Garcia ‘Everyday Moments’ planner stamp set.

This time I printed the digital images on to copy paper to see what that would be like – a little bit of bleeding with the Touch Five markers I used.  I think this is because the markers are so juicy and wet.  I still like the affect though – makes it look more unique and ‘sapce like’.

inspiration closeup2

I added a little gesso around the edges with my fingers – I like the look of the white gessor, particularly on the coloured cardstock.

I hope you enjoyed this layout and please be sure to check out the Scrapper’s Delights blog for all of the Design Team inspiration projects for this month at http://scrappers-delights-challenge-blog.blogspot.com.au/. Until next time…..

Hello crafty friends, Sarah here today with the June new release for Little Blue Button Stamps.  With this gorgeous stamp, I created a 6×8 landscape layout in my planner.

The Kite Sophie and Sam digital stamp can be purchased in store at http://lbbstamps.com/.  Get in quick for the new release special price!  The versatility of a digital image is fantastic – for this layout I enlarged the stamp to really highlight it as part of the layout and the ‘adventure’ message. Sophie and Sam say ‘adventure’ to me!

The thickers used on this layout are from D-lish Scraps, with stickers from the We R Memory Keepers High Five collection. Let’s take a closer look at Sophie and Sam. The image is coloured using Stampin Up blendabilities and Touch Five markers.
