Part II Halloween Projects for Creative Scrap Designs and Helmar Adhesives

Hi friends, I'm running a little behind on my last couple posts on here. These projects were made for both Helmar Adhesives as well as for the online store Creative Scrap Designs. This was actually my 1st one for Helmar and it had to be Halloween themed. So when I received the Oct. monthly kit from Creative Scrap Designs along with the Add-on Kit, I knew that this would def. be a combination project! 

In the monthly kit for October from Creative Scrap Designs, came with a variety of chipboard pieces that were designed by the store owner Mai Larsen, Embellishments, Paper. Below I will post the video of the unboxing I did for this kit! 

I also did a Picture tutorial on Snapguide showing the steps that I did making these projects! The accordion album has a couple spots for some small photos, the coffin I tried to make it look sort of burned, worn out. Used a variety of paints, mediums to complete this look. 

Here is the link to my Snapguide tutorial as well as the YouTube video on the unboxing of the kit and the Add-on I used for these projects! 
I really liked working with the variety of adhesives that I used on these projects! Down below I will list the links to both Helmar Adhesives and Creative Scrap Designs!

Part I of Halloween Projects for Creative Scrap Designs

Hello again my crafty friends!! Today I'm excited to share a couple of projects that I created for Creative Scrap Designs. I really am enjoying using the contents of the October kit that owner and designer Mai Larsen had put together in this kit. Below I will post the YouTube video sharing the wonderful DT package I was sent! 
This first project is a Waterfall Mini Album, it wasn't part of the kit but was part of my DT package. From the kit I used the 8x8 paper pad from Tim Holtz, some of the Halloween chipboard designs that Mai created. As well as other small embellishments. 

My next project is a canvas/shadow box that I made using the white canvas that was included in the October kit. I decided on making it more vintage themed with a little bit of Halloween in it! I pained it with black gesso, I then sprayed pieces of cheese cloth using some Lindy's sprays and Prima bloom sprays, I also used some tiny LED Lanties from Prima, some chipboard from the kit, I embossed them using the powders that came in the kit. I used the Tim Holtz Baseboard embellishments , they came in the kit too. 


I used some metals I had received in my Sept. DT package for the upper corners. I used some fabric flowers from my stash , I picked these cuz I wanted it to look a little vintage. I used some alcohol inks on some small vials then cut out some tiny pictures from one of the 8x8 papers. I used also some photos that I cut out from there as well. I framed them using some Tim Holtz stickers from my stash. I also tied up a couple of the Tim Holtz Halloween Typed Tokens that came in the kit. 
I hope u liked Part I of my projects! I thought I would share these two first then this month I'm doing an extra one so the next two will be up by the end of the month! Below is the YT video so u can see the rest of the Waterfall mini! Thanks for checking out my post today! XOXO,

Hi friends! This week I'm back with a tag that I made for Secret Garden Crafts Flower store! This week was "Anything Goes " , I really was thinking that I wish it was still summer, even though I love all of the upcoming holiday's! Anyhow I decided to use this summer themed paper from Prima, St. Tropez! Its one of the newest collections from Frank Garcia.
I began by trimming a thick cardstock that was part of some packaging from some chipboard I had previously received. So thought I would recycle and use this instead. I measured and cut the paper from the collection. Before adding the paper I added pieces of cheese cloth and burlap to the chipboard tag then added the paper, I adhered everything using Fabri tac adhesive and the began embellishing using ephemera , Say It In Crystals, shells, twine, small pearls and the beautiful flowers from Secret Garden Crafts.

I really enjoyed making this tag because Fall is here now so just wanted to bring one last piece of summer to you! I also want to say that this will be my last project for Secret Garden Crafts. I wish I could have stayed but was misunderstanding what the required projects were due to my fibromyalgia (Brain Fog) so I decided it was best for my health I do this. Although they aren't complicated at all, I think I had different expectations instead of being on a card making design team. But I do however thank Archana for giving me a chance. I'll be back again with other projects so I hope u will be on the look out for those and thank u for checking out my blog today. xoxo, Jeanne

DT Project for Secret Garden Crafts

I'm back crafty friends! This week I'm sharing the 2nd DT project for Secret Garden Crafts for the month of Sept. This week our inspirational projects for you were to make either a card or a tag that included a doily. I decided to make a card size I had yet to make. So I decided on the three fold or tri fold tall card. 

I began by using an 8.5 X 11 white card stock. I only had to trim of 1/2 of it. So with the 8 X 11 paper I scored it at 3.5 in at each side. I wanted to use some of the Prima Heaven Scent paper that I've had in my stash. Since the Heaven Sent II collection is already out, I really would love to have it. But I need to quick hoarding and use up what I have. Anyhow so a picked out two patterns of the papers from the A5 paper pad. I measured and cut it to size, I then cut it in long stripe pieces and adhering them.  I then added a white paper doily that I had received in some happy mail, it seems to be a die cut. Its a thick white card stock that was used. It was just the right size for the width of my card. 

Once I adhered the paper I picked out a silhouette cut out dress form and chandelier embellishment that I got from Want2Scrap.  I glued these on, then had already decided on using one of the gorgeous Prima vines that Archana carries in her online store Secret Garden Crafts. I added just one of the Large White Gardenias that I received in my September DT package. 

Before adhering the vines down with the white gardenia, I used my black glimmer spray from DecoArts to splatter it around the card. I didn't want to get the spray on the flowers, I only wanted it to get onto the background. I like how it turned out! I hope you like it as well. This was a quick card to make and I hope that you are inspired to try making different sizes of cards for different occasions. I didn't add a sentiment because with some of my cards I feel that leaving them blank you can use them for any occasions. 
Thank you for checking out this weeks project for Secret Garden Crafts and I hope that you will check out the online store where you can save 10% by using the code "SEPT10" plus you can also receive FREE SHIPPING by shopping $50 or more!!

Halloween Mini Album from Frank Garcia Mini Album Parcel kit club

Hi friends! I'm back with a very exciting project! I know its a little early for Halloween but I was anxious to make this only because for one it was a special order kit from Frank Garcia! This was not one of the regular monthly kits, this one was a special order for those who wanted a Halloween kit because there are alot of people who don't celebrate Halloween. 

This kit came at a perfect time because I was asked by the editor from The Paper Mill blog if I wanted to participate in the Halloween round up on their blog! So this is a great honor and I am very excited for this! So when Frank shared with us what we would be getting I knew I wanted to make that as my feature!! 

So the paper that came in the kit was the beautiful "Spell cast" by Pink Paislee!! It's their newest collection and those of us that purchased the kit got the entire collection plus so much extra product from Prima. It has a sort of a vintage theme to it! 

I also added some papers that I had in a Halloween Paper pad from Recollections. I had purchased it in a destash and I love it cuz it had glittered paper and other varieties. I also used some WOC flowers as well as the all the neat embellishments that  came with in the kit! Anyhow I'm excited to be featured in the blog for The Paper Mill and I will definetly share it with you all once it goes live!! 

Thank you for checking out my blog post and I hope you will subscribe , follow me on here and the rest of my social media sites! xoxo, Jeanne
