Helmar Blog Post & A 'Sassy' Challenge

Hey guys! Happy Tuesday! I hope you all are having a fabulous day! I have a new project going up on the Helmar blog today and wanted to share it with you here too! If you would like to check out the project (more pix and project info on there), go HERE. For this post, I created a special project for my Mom. It is a gift set consisting of a Christmas themed kitchen door hanger and refrigerator magnet. I used the following Helmar Adhesives on my project:
 Here is my project...
I used my Cricut Expression, Cricut Gypsy, and the 'From My Kitchen' Cricut cartridge for this project.This patterned paper is from My Mind's Eye. I hope my Mom will like these in her Christmas kitchen, which is decorated in a gingerbread theme. I think she will! :)
 This is the larger apron. It is about 10 inches tall. It is made to either hang on a door knob or could be hung on the wall.
 I added lots of dimension with the use of Helmar Zap Dots, ribbon, lace, and Dew Drops.
 These Dew Drops are from 'The Robins Nest' and were adhered with Helmar Gemstone Glue.
 This is the smaller apron, which is the refrigerator magnet. It is about 5 inches tall.
 Added more dimension and bling to this one as well...
 Now, while I was getting my scrap on yesterday completing these project, I decided to play along with this weeks challenge at 'She's A Sassy Lady.' Every Saturday, Sheila shares a new tutorial on using your Cricut Gypsy. As I've mentioned before, these are SOOOO helpful! They really getting you to using your Gypsy and learning all you can about it. This week's tutorial focuses on creating 'partial shaped cards.' If you would like to check out this tutorial, go HERE. I love anything shaped, so I knew I had to give this a try. I used the Seasonal Thanksgiving Cricut cartridge for creating my shaped card. I'm addicted to this cartridge right now. Here is what I came up with:
 Supplies used on this card:
1. Patterned Paper: Pink Paislee
2. Cardstock: The Paper Studio
3. Punch: EK Success
4. Lace: Jo Ann
 This pilgrim lady flourish cut is just my fave! The sentiment on the card is also from the Seasonal Thanksgiving cartridge.
So if you own a Gyspy, hop on over to Sheila's blog and check out this tutorial! I think this is a great new take on cards and it is so easy to do!!! I can't wait to make another partial shaped card!

As always, thank you so much for stopping by my blog! I hope I have inspired you in some way today! Have a fabulous day and Happy Scrappin'!
