Twice the fun, with Helmar and Karen Foster Designs!


Today, I have two Helmar USA projects to share with you! Both of them feature Karen Foster Designs, one of Helmar's preferred partners. This company was so generous with their supplies! They gave us so many themed papers, stickers and embellishments to play with, it was hard to choose what to do. I finally decided on using the Sweet Sixteen and a combination of the Cruise and Baby Boy lines for my projects.




U R Fabulous!
I thought this little flip-flop gift box and matching mini card would be a cute idea for a sixteen year old! I found the paper mache box at Michaels and it's the perfect size for jewelry or even car keys!!! :)

After painting the lid of the box black, I used some of the 2 step Crackle Medium. When the lid was dry I rubbed some light pink paint into the cracks and then quickly wiped off the excess paint with a damp rag.

The rest of the box was then covered with patterned paper using the Acid Free Glue and stickers.

Before adding the 16 and flower sticker to the box and card, I brushed on a thin layer of the Acid Free Glue and then added some translucent glitter.


Supplies used:
Helmar - Crackle Medium and Acid Free Glue
Karen Foster Designs - Patterned paper and stickers.
Mark Richards - Pearls
Making Memories - Mini letter stickers
Maya Road - Stick pin
Bazzill - Tulle ribbon and cardstock
Michaels - Flip-flop box




For Your Bundle of Joy
My next project is all about a baby!!! This sailboat was purchased from Michaels also. They had a bunch of other nautical items, so if you wanted to you could alter a whole set for a nursery!!!



Most of this project was put together using the Helmar's Craft and Hobby PVA Glue.
For some dimension on the Lifebuoy, duck and "Bundle of Joy" sticker I used Liquid Scrap Dots.
The tiny buttons were applied using Gemstone glue.




Supplies used:
Helmar - Craft and Hobby PVA Glue, Liquid Scrap Dots and Gemstone glue.
Karen Foster Designs - Patterned paper and stickers.
Pink Paislee - Topsiders borders
Making Memories - Mini letter stickers and paint
American Crafts - Chipboard
Lasting Impressions - Buttons
Michaels - Sailboat

Thanks for visiting!!!
