Thank You Helmar!

As a scrapper you got to love your adhesives...so when this box of Helmar Adhesives showed up I was seriously excited. I have used their products in the past and really love them...the 450 Quick Dry is a favorite of mine!

I just wanted to send a very big THANK YOU to Helmar Adhesives! You made me one very happy scrapper!

Thank You Elmers!

I consider myself one very lucky girls because on my front step last week I got several boxes of goodies! It was a fun mail week for sure! I want to give a shout out and very big THANK YOU to Elmers Adhesives and X-acto for sending me this box of goodies!

I will be using this as part of the Elmer's Craft & Tell Host Party! Check out the Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker Blog Later this month for all the projects!

Pebbles Projects!

We had some fun this month on the Pebbles blog. We received a bunch of goodies from American Crafts to used along side our Pebbles products and they just work so well together!

Of course I used another photo of my adorable niece Livi...so dang sweet! She is quite the little talker and so full of personality!

Are these embellishments not the cutest things ever! Love them!

I also made my Mom this card for Mother's Day, like me here favorite color is purple so I always try to use it when I make her something!

I just adore these Paper Flowers. They are one of my new favorite products and I found myself having to buy extra because I know I will use them a ton!

Thanks so much for stopping by! If you have not stopped by the Pebbles blog lately check it out this week, the girls have just rocked the projects big time!

A perfect pair...Want2Scrap and Graphic 45!

I was thrilled when a box of Graphic 45 showed up on my porch...they were extremely generous with the Want2Scrap™ design team. Of course my favorite line is the On the Boardwalk line. Being the summer and beach lover that I am it is a new favorite of mine!

My adorable little nephew loves the beach too and we usually get to spend at least a few days in Avalon with him. He loved playing in the sand...and a dump truck made it even better!

I dove into the Nestabling™. The lime green Labels Fourteen Nestabling™ worked perfectly with the Labels Fourteen Die Cuts by Spellbinders™. I also used a little Zip Dry by Beacon Adhesives™ which was the perfect adhesive to make this little sequined flower embellishment.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs to you all!

Nikki Sivils Fun...

When Jack goes off to visit Mom-Mom and Pop-Pop his new favorite thing to do is to shoot some hoops. On our last visit he worked up a sweat playing along with Jake, my nephew.

Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker We Are Family line was perfect for this layout...are these little houses not the cutest ever! I added a few Red Pearls from Want2Scrap.

I am always looking out for new ways to store my scrappy goodies...a necessary evil when you are a scrapper. At a little market I purchased some small jams in lots of flavors. I saved all the jars and they now are on my scrappy shelved holding goodies. So much cuter than those plastic clam shell containers we buy them in.

How cute are they? Totally! I love the pretty paper in the Max & Mollie line. Perfect for this project!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Super Simple Altered Clothes Pin

This little gift is super simple and makes an adorable gift...you know it is perfect for teachers! I love to give the teachers a little something to say thank you and this just may be it this year.

All you need for this is...
  • Altered Clothes Pin
  • Spray Ink
  • Bling and Pearls
  • Ribbon
  • Journaling Spots

A simple way to stain the clothes pin is to spray it with ink, spread it with a sponge brush and allow it to dry. It looks great and is so simple. For the flower I simply layered journaling spots over one another...love this! I added the Nestabling™ Heart Circles in Brown Rhinestones. I love the bit of sparkle that adds! I also used the White Pearls - 72 Count.

For the stem I glue down pieces of ribbon with Beacon™ 3-in-1 Advanced Craft Glue. This is a new adhesive to me and I love how thick this is...it also dries quickly which is a great bonus. I added Green Pearls - 72 Count as an accent...the perfect touch I think!

Here is the final product!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
