Loving my Glues

As you may know I've recently joined the Helmar Creative Team again and have been writing small tutorials on their Blog - HERE

A couple of the projects that I've made are some lovely little magnets and bookmarks using the Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive, you can read all about them - HERE

and I also tried my hand at my first ever Acrylic Pour with the aid of Helmar H4000 Silicone Oil. It was a learning experience which I really enjoyed and will be continuing on with this project in the coming weeks. You can read my instructions - HERE

Thank you so much for taking the time to read and I hope you have a wonderful day :)

Playing with 'InLoveArtShop' dies

Well it's almost the end of May and I feel like I've barely completed anything at all this month but looking back I realise that most of the month I've been playing around with my scraps which is normally an ongoing type of thing.

Two of the projects I did manage to complete this month are a journal and some memory dex type cards. I was recently sent some dies from an online store called 'inloveartshop' to play around with and review so these are what I decided to make.

This is the Shabby style Journal I made, I used the Atelier paperpack from Stamperia, I just love the shabbyness of these papers and of course the old soft blues.

You can find a full video of this journal on my youtube channel - HERE where I explain how I have used the various dies, but I'll also share some still shots for your viewing :)

I really love the way this journal turned out :)

Memory Dex style cards were also on my agenda, I've never made this type of card before and honestly they are very very simple. This particular die was a door style and you can also find the video on them - HERE

This die has little doors that open up so I've used a smaller magnet to keep them shut on the bottom one and a paperclip on the middle one.

Please be aware that these cards are a smaller size and measure 3.5" across the bottom :)

What I've been making

I'm always making something, or so it seems :)

Have I ever told you how happy my crafting makes me, I never seem to tire of making and I love to mix things up too. Sometimes I think it would be nice to be a master of only one type of craft but that's just not me, I like to do different things with my moods.

Here's an altered Ice Bucket I recently made using some of the gorgeous trims from Crafty Me Shop over on facebook, it's quite whimsical and delicate and I just love the pretty colours.

and then there's these lovely projects, very sparkly with all the bling chain from and also in the pretty colour tones. I created some boho charm/beads, altered a couple of card holders and made a paper tassel doll.

You know I never intentionally made these projects to 'match' but it was just the mood I was in at the time :)

Next up I played with some vintage photo slides I received from Bonny and Clive as a little challenge to see what I could make with them, it was a fun challenge and I'm happy with my makes, I even had a couple more ideas that I may complete at a later date.

I managed to make some embellishments, a large charm/dangle, a couple of paperclips and a tiny mini journal.

If you would like to see any of these projects in more detail, please feel free to visit my Youtube Channel HERE and watch the individual videos :)

Take care and have a lovely day
