Birthday Stamped Card with Helmar

Hi Veronica here today and I must say I am very happy to be on another term with Helmar!  This will be my third year

Today I am sharing a Birthday Card I created using Helmar Craft Glue and also Helmar zapdots.  I love using the zapdots because I like layering and making my work look dimensional.

I have some outline stamps that are made to stack and create beautiful layered images.  I made this flower and started creating my Birthday card with my base and working my way up.

First, since I have been on a journey to use my stash - I went to my folio where I keep pieces of pattern paper.  This is great for making cards because you don't need that much paper to make a card.  My base is a 5x7 craft card.

I added some blank white paper on the inside of card for writing a note.  Now I have my base card ready with my brown and green patterned papers.  So I add my beautiful stamped and layered flower.  I also punched out some smaller brown flowers and had a small green flower from my stash to use.  Since my flower is already 3 dimensional I adhere the flower with my Helmar Craft glue.

Its time for zap dots.

My card is layered but not extremely bulky because after all I do want to mail it.

Thank you for stopping by today.  Please go on over to the Helmar blog where my card is being featured today and like Helmar on FB.

Happy Scrapping ...

New Fairy Album

Hi -

We are under hurricane warning today so after getting my water and canned goods and filling up my gas tank - guess what?  I had time to take photos and post this very pretty Fairy Album on my Etsy store Kitsnbitscraps today!!

I have had this paper tablet for a while and I never got around to making anything from it.  How many of you out there buy pretty paper thinking you will go home that very day and create something with the new paper?  I do this all the time.  The way that I create things is in my mind first.  So I looked at this paper knowing exactly what I wanted to make but then things and my life get in my way.  Anyway, I have a lot more ideas roaming around in my head and I have already started on another album.

So back to this pretty little piece.  The outside is thick chipboard and the inside pages are made with the stack the deck system.  I think that is Laura Dennison?  The album is approx. 6x6 and has 6 pages.  Each page has mattes for 6 photos and/or journaling so there is enough for around 34 plus in this album.

I just posted it today at my Etsy store along with some cards, layouts and my beach album from last week.  So there are plenty of goodies to look at.

Here are some pics of this album:  Fairy Album

The outside cover has the newest Prima Marketing (Frank Garcia) Remnant Domes Memory Hardware.  Inside the Dome I have a beautiful winged silver fairy charm placed on a background of castles with lots of glitter and beads in the dome.

The 3 inch binding has purple textured faux leather with two charms and lots of ribbon and fiber.  One charm is the 2 inch silver fairy and the other is a small (7 gypsies) bottle of "fairy dust"

The entire album has a shabbly - distressed look to it with distressed edges and gold painted crowns.  This album really turned out nice. 

Thank you for stopping by and let me know what you think :)

Happy Scrapping

Product Used:

Paper:  DCWV, Bazzill; Glue:  Helmar;  Ribbon/Fiber:  May Arts, Basic Grey; Embellishments:  Prima Marketing, Sizzix diecuts, K&Co., Mark Richards

Celebrate New Pages


I listed this 12x12 Premade layout titled "Celebrate" on my Etsy store Kitsnbitscraps a couple of days ago.

I have been busy creating layouts and albums these last couple weeks.  I figured if I was in the mood I might as well take advantage of that creativity and use it right!

I have a couple of things to tell you about.  I am honored to be on the Helmar team going on my third year - this year I will be a "guest designer" so I wont be on the blog as often as last several terms.  I love my Helmar so couldn't let it go just yet.  Yes, I did use Helmar on this layout and all my layout and albums this week.

Here is the link to this layout if you are interested in buying it CELEBRATE LAYOUT.

More photos for you below.  This would be a great layout for birthday photos, shower photos, anniversaries and even Mom's Day.

These pages have pretty Prima flowers and also stamped (outline stamps) flowers which are layered and glittered.  There are rub ons and vellum, ribbon, stickers and 3D butterflies.  Lots of technique and plenty of room for photos.

Hope you enjoy, take a look at my store Kitsnbitscraps for more layout and albums.

Happy Scrappping ...

BaBy Scrapbook Layouts

Hi -

I've been busy!  Using my stash and making simple baby pages.  I just listing the first one "Sweet Dreams" above and will list second one "Sweetie" tomorrow on my Kitsnbitscraps Etsy Store

I also made a cute very layered stamped card for Helmar  today but that is news for another day.  Like I said - I have been busy.

This second layout is titled "Sweetie" with subtitle "play" which I will list tomorrow.  By the way I am also starting to list more Christmas Cards on my Kitsnbitscraps Etsy store too, so check it out.

scrapbooking premade pages Sweetie kitsnbitscraps

I used Helmar on both layouts.  I have used tape runners lots of times and what I find out is that you need liquid glue if you want it to stay put for a life.

Here are some more pics of both layouts.  I will be blogging next about a brand new layout I created yesterday, so come back!  It turned out super cute.

That's it for now, more to come.  Happy Scrapping ...
