Pink Paislee, Shimmerz Paint and Hambly Studio

I have looked at this photo of my husband for a long time and finally decided to scrap it with the
Pink Paislee collection from our preferred partner. I wanted to create a party them so I created a banner with pom pom using the Pink Paislee papers. I also incorporated the Hambly Screen Prints transparency with the green elephants in the design.The two base Pink Paislee papers are attached with Helmar Quick Fix Adhesive Runner and then I stitched around the page. The Transparency is attached with Helmar V2 Vellum Adhesive. I have to say ..... This product is new to me and I love how it works. It is a must have if you use vellum on you projects. The banner is built on a piece of cord called rat tail and the banner elements are attached withHelmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive. The photo was placed on top of the transparency using the same Helmar Quick Dry Adhesive.

Another wonderful feature with Helmar adhesives are the screw top lids. No more looking for the lids for the bottle when you have completed your project. I have actually had bottle caps snap off during travel and I ended up with a huge mess of spilled glue in my bag. Talk to you next week!

Lily Bee - Play all Day

Working with HelmarHelmar Adhesives and their preferred partners could not be better. I have an entire collection of adhesives at my finger tips and a beautiful diverse array of prodcuts to play with. I love our preferred opartners and the gifts they give us to work with.

This weeks vendor as you know by now is Lily Bee Lily Bee . I am a girls that needs intense color and these papers just vibrate and inspire your senses You can see the entire collection here Hello Sunshine.

The colors in the Lily Bee collections are colorful and FUN and it was a pleasure putting this page together. I have had the photo of my nieces and nephew for a couple of years but have never scrapped it despite the fact that I loooove the photo. They had been playing out side all day with me following them around taking photos. Just your typical play all day on the farm tyoe of day. Swinging on a rope swing,swimming, climbing and dragging your feet thru the Florida sugar sand. You probably can not tell from this view but they are little dirt monsters at this point of the day. We were getting ready to go inside for the day when they all layed down on the concrete driveway. Think they were all exhaused.

To put this page together I first stitched 4 long stitches of cotton thread around the perimeter of the page.

I added a little Shimmerz Spritz paints on the corners of the page. I used after midnight and Concrete.

I then cut the blue and yellow pieces of Lily Bee paper Lily Bee to size and glued it down with Helmar Quick fix adhesive runner. The yellow rectangular paper has bobbin stitching around the out side of the page and were adhered with Helmar Quick Fix adhesive runner Helmar Adhesive explained. The top photo is mounted on cardboard and then attached with Helmar Zap dots and the embellishments used a combination of Zap Dots, and craft Glue to adhere everything on the paper.

The variety of patterns and colors in the papers made them very easy so easy to put together or a page. Be sure and go to the Lily Bee web site and check out their new collections .
