Creative Embellishments

Creative Embellishments is a new family business company who makes outstanding quality chipboard embellishments for all those who have a creative vision that would like their projects to shine with goodness!

Here are the details about the September challenge
The nautical trend continues to be a hot one in the scrappy/paper crafting world so that’s the challenge. Create a layout, altered item, mini album, card or tag…. Whatever you heart desires with something on it nautical related. eg. a photo,  patterned paper, stickers, washi tape etc.. :) I only ask that the project is new as of September 1st. Please no back linking.
 I have made this card to celebrate their 1st challenge on their blog.  Since this is a celebration for owner Nicolle and family, I decided to try out all new things for the 1st time with this challenge.  I used the negative space of an old chipboard piece,  landscape inking techniques and designing the card as if looking through a natural landscape window.

Be sure to visit Creative Embellishments check out the store to see all the modern trendy chipboard.  Say hello on the blog and sign up for a newsletter.

Helmar Adhesive

Hello Welcome to Helmar Adhesive.  This is my first design team post that I wish to share with you as I start my design team term with Helmar.  Autumn is a wonderful time of year for many who have the opportunity to watch the magic of leaves that turn brilliant colors of yellow, orange and red.  Autumn is also the start of school routines, cozy sweater weather and lovely evening dinners.

To-day, I am sharing my Autumn by preparing for a Fall dinner.   

 Start with gathering your supplies and adhesive by Helmar. The burlap on this project is a real burlap seed bag from the farm.

Just a little of Helmar Scrap Dots holds the burlap in place.

Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive works great on the glass wine bottle.   

This  glue allows for a quick decorative moment as you go out the door to visit friends for dinner.

                   The leaves and buttons hold in place quickly with Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive.

 Bon   Appetit  !
