A New Scrapping Store.

For those of you who don't know, my mother has recently taken over ownership of a scrapbook store in Rockhampton in central QLD called A Crafter's Passion.

The previous owner had some personal issues which prevented her from keeping the store up to date, so Mum is currently putting in lots of time and effort to freshen up the store and re-stock with lots of brand new stuff. Classes have re-commenced, and a brand new challenge kit is starting today. She hopes to have have full product kits available from next month.

Here is the January challenge kit. The kit is only $10 (+$6.95 P&H). Papers are so very pretty. They are Lilac House from Fancy Pants.

Create an entry from your kit and submit to the store by midnight on January 31st (either in person, by email or via facebook) to be in the running to win the following challenge kit for free!
Please note that these kits are EXTREMELY limited in numbers and are expected to go very quickly.
To get you started, here is a layout I created from the kit.

Meanwhile we would love to get the word out there, so we are running a little giveaway. The winner will receive this months challenge kit Free (including postage), plus a little something extra.

You have multiple ways to win.

2. For an EXTRA entry to win, visit the facebook page, become a liker and leave a comment. Simple as that!

You have until Midnight on Sunday the 9th of January to enter.

We would love it if you would tell all your friends about us too and give them a chance to win also.

Helmar Holiday Hop.

Welcome Everyone to our first Annual Helmar Holiday Hop

If you haven't "LIKED" Helmar yet on our facebook page, make sure you do, because we will be taking over Santa's job today on the Helmar Facebook Page. What better gift at Christmas than some Crafting Goodies right?


If you have happened to arrive here without starting right from the beginning, be sure to head to the Helmar blog for the starting instructions, then follow the link on each blog leaving comments as you go to be in the draw for some great prizes. I'd also like to invite you all to become a follower of my blog by clicking the "Follow" button over there on the right.

I have made for you a lolly tree which will be the centrepiece for our desert on Christmas day. Each person coming has their own little spot on the tree. The bottom layer has jelly bean lolly bags. The middle layer has mini lolly boxes, and for the top layer, I have made little cupcake holders, filled with chocolates.

I have used gorgeous Christmas papers from Helmar Preferred partner (and fellow Design Team company) Best Creation. How perfect that the papers are all pre-glittered. Saves me lots of time that I would have otherwise spent glittering and waiting to dry.

For this project I have used a combination of adhesives, depending on which part of the project it is. I have used:
Helmar adhesive tape runner: to construct my little boxes, and for the ribbon, and paper strips.

Helmar 450 Quick dry adhesive: For layering paper flowers.

Helmar Scrap dots: For attaching all the hand cut flowers.

Next, it is time to head over to see what the lovely Gayle Martin has created for you. Just click on Santa's face. Thanks for visiting.
