Sin City Stamps.. DT Teaser

Happy Friday folks, it's Tamiko here!  Everyone has been doing fairy related pieces and to tell the truth I have been a little jealous.  I have found a way to make up for it though!  Who doesn't like a good fairy tale?  I know I do to this day!  Having a almost 10 year old doesn't automatically give me the get out of fairy tale free card either, but you k now what, I'm cool with that.  Just a teaser from my journal page tutorial.  YOU can find the FINISHED PAGE HERE !!

  Added some good old Helmars Super-Tac for a QUICK hold to my page. (yep iI think that's called CROSS PROMOTING!!)  Thanks Sandee! lol

Every MIRACLE takes a little time- is the popular quote from Cinderella that I included on the stairway of my piece today to remind not just YOU, but also myself.  Cool thing to ponder!  I hope you are able to be on the receiving end of a few miracles, heck, even better, why not make a few come true for other folks.. :)  Have a MAGICAL weekend and don't forget to visit SIN CITY STAMPS for all your stamping desires and GREAT POST, (like MINE lol) from our wonderful DESIGN TEAM MEMBERS. :)

Helmar DT Teaser.. StarBook

Good Day All!  Here in the United States we are experiencing winter time and frankly I am tired of it! (smiles)  We have quite a bit of snow and the cold temps mean, it won't melt anytime soon!  In the meantime I have got to transplant myself into something that makes me happy!  I looked around my room and I decided I would play with something that had been hoarding.  ::hangs head low::  I just love these papers by Susan K Weckesser .. they make me happy!  With them, i decided I would create a star book!

I cut my papers in sets of 6.  4x6in; 4x7in; and 4x8in.  I then got out my Helmar's Craft & Hobby PVA Glue and lined up each of the 3 pages and glued the edges on the 4 inch sides only.starting with the longest sheet (4x8) and ending with the shortest sheet (4x6)


Since the 4x6 pages are the decorated card stock I decided to add some cool *color and bloom* related quotes and fussycut some of the flowers. I wanted my quotes to attach quickly because I didn't decorate the page BEFORE I attached it to the book (kicks myself) so I used Helmar's Super-Tac Glue to embellish the pages quickly.  Then I wanted to decorate cover and add a fibrous ribbon for closure.  I used my Helmar's ZapDots to add dimension the title page.

I am sure as my daughter and I sit back and read the quotes.. We will embellish the book further with faces, paints and doodles because, that's what we do.  We complete books together.  We make up our own stories and use these dreary wintry spring starved days like today to remind us color still exist within us.. :)    Would love for you to check out my finished project by CLICKING HERE and leaving me a bloggy love to know you came by.. I would also like to do the same for you!!

Thanks for dropping by!!!  Have a great week!
