Magistical Memories August Sketch

Hello my friends! I am so happy that you have dropped by! I want you to know how much I appreciate you coming by and leaving your sweet comments! So often many of you have just made my day! Thank you!! ((HUGS))

I have a new project to show you today using Magistical Memories chipboard and Helmar Adhesives! It is based on my sketch for Magistical Memories August sketch challenge! This page has SO many of my favorite products and techniques!!! So it's appropriate that it's an all about me page! :)
I AM...
I used a combination of Pink Paislee and October Afternoon papers on here. Both very different paper lines, but they worked so well on this page I think!! I love all of the bright colors! I had fun pulling out the red in them by using the red alpha's (Websters Pages) and the red roses (Websters pages as well)
I used a fun bracket frame from Magistical Memories on here. I sprayed the plain chipboard frame with Helmar's V2 Vellum Adhesive. I let it sit for about 5 minutes and then sprinkled with PK Glitz glitter. This adhesive holds SOOOO well! It is invisible so there is no trace of it, and it holds glitter incredibly! I then sprayed it with hairspray to hold the glitter in place... a little trick I picked up somewhere! :)
Another thing I am in love with lately is these mini roses!!! SWOON! They are by Recollections... found at Michaels they are an exact replica of Prima flowers, only a fair bit cheaper if you get them on sale!! I think I bought about 8 packages here a couple of weeks ago! Almost every color they had... and I blame/thank Tracey for showing me them!! LOL!
They are held on with the Helmar 450 Quick Dry, as is the chipboard and tulle roses. This stuff dries SO fast, and is invisible. It's better than a glue gun by far!!
Isn't that locket adorable!!?? I found it a Michaels some time ago and paid nearly nothing for a 2 pack! This is the first I've used them, but the other one will be found on another page very soon! It opens up so you can put paper or a photo inside! I put in the blue paper and then added the # stickers to the outside!
Another new addiction is this border punch! I can't do a page without some kind of border punch, and this is my newest purchase! i have adored it in the work of others I've seen, so when I had the chance to purchase it, I jumped at the chance!! :)

Thank you for stopping by!
Happy Scrapping!

August? What's up with that!?!? I can't believe that the kids start back to school one month from yesterday!! My oldest son starts this year... :( He's ready, but I'm not really sure if i am! :)

I have a quick layout to show you that I did for Helmar! This week's preferred partner was Fancy Pants! I got to work with the ABOUT A GIRL collection! OMW! These collections are FULL of yummy inspiration! I had SO many ideas flowing thru my head! I didn't get a lot of time to scrap those ideas yet... but I did manage to create this page in just over 1/2 an hour! That's what I LOVE about collections! Everything is right there in front of you!

For this page I used the Helmar Premium craft glue for most of it. A couple of Zapdots under the heart and wings, and the Quick Fix Adhesive runner for my journaling strips!
I seriously never thought that I would turn to a liquid glue for my scrapbooking adhesive! Any that I have used in the past ALWAYS buckled and rippled my papers! Not the Helmar Adhesives! (And I don't just say that cause I have to! LOL!) I seriously love the stuff!
