Little Bird Ellie

Saturday, April 19, 2014
Hi everyone today I am sharing a post that is extra special to me I created an altered tea light lantern with a Paper Nest Dolls image which I am super excited to say will be available in the MarkerPOP store!!  My project features Little Bird Ellie and I added some handmade flowers I made, with some bling and lace!

I had such a great time making this and it has been so long since I have made my flowers I forgot how much I enjoyed making them.  I guess I need to make a video showing how I made these huh?!!

Hi everyone Simply Monica here with my 1st post for Helmar.  I created a mini Easter album to put photos of my niece and nephew in this year.  My kids are way to old for the Easter Bunny so now I use my niece and nephew for all my crafty projects. This is the 1st mini I made for their photos so its packed with a bunch of different things.  I wanted to be able to add photos easily.  I used nice fun bright colors and used my Helmar Adhesives to hold it all together because it is super thick! - See more at: http://helmarusa.typepad.com/#sthash.yoP6KGVs.dpuf

First page has a fun Hello sentiment with a bunch of spots to add some mini photos


Here comes the sunshine and we all know nothing is more amazing than watching the kids run in the sunshine looking for all those eggs!
I know they could not be more happier either right?!!



Here is a photo showing how thick the album is and my Helmar adhesive is the perfect glue that can keep this mini together.  In certain spot I used the Zapdots to add height..

Hi everyone welcome to Treasured Times Rubber Stamps - Challenge #16 Sketch
This is the sketch we used as inspiration for this challenge and this is my take using a new release

This challenge runs for April 15th-April 30th at 11:55pm PST.
You may use any stamp of your choice as long as it relates to Easter.
Enter up to three items as long as they aren't old entries.
Link your project to your blog.
Winner will choose 3 free digis from the website, and I will throw in a free stamp from our stamp designers. 
Jody will choose the winner of this challenge.

So for challenge #16 our design team followed a sketch and also used an Easter theme for their projects.
