Contest Extended! Win Helmar PRIZES

YOU HAVE UNTIL SUNDAY OCT. 7th TO PARTICIPATE...
Go to the Helmar FACEBOOK page and LIKE them, plus tell them what you like best about WINTER to be eligible for a prize!  But... you must tell them that I, Vicky Alberto sent you there to like them so that I qualify for a prize too :) If you already like them, then still leave a comment to be entered to win anyways. Easy peasy! Winner gets some gluey goodness.

DON'T FORGET TO ENTER HELMAR'S OCTOBER COLOR PALETTE CHALLENGE THIS MONTH TOO,  DETAILS ON THE HELMAR BLOG.


BTW - What do I like about Winter? I love Christmas, coffee and Baileys, scrapbooking by the fireplace, watching my kids have fun in the snow and escaping to the mountains for a weekend getaway. Other than those 5 things - I HATE WINTER!!!

October OUAS Reveal (using Pion Design)

Can you believe it is already October? I can't. Today I am revealing my Once Upon a Sketch DT layout, featuring Pion Design papers (mix of For Mother and For Father collections). The OUAS challenge theme this month and my project revolves around interpreting this quote...

"Life is like a camera, just focus on what's important and capture the good times, develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, just take another shot". This is a very fitting quote for very personal reasons and I have word for word journaled it on the back of my layout. Pictured is my mother holding my youngest baby at the age of 8 months. Please click on images for a larger view.


Here is a close-up of the pretty Pion papers, Dusty attic chipboard and an assortment of flowers. BTW - I re-stocked my Etsy shop yesterday with Dusty Attic and 2Crafty chipboard - see the previous blog post :)

This is the gorgeous sketch and challenge details. Please note that my layout was glued using a variety of awesome Helmar adhesives.

I hope you can play along with the October challenge!

2Crafty chipboard in my Etsy + DA update

Well, I have just finished loading my Etsy shop  (www.etsy.com/shop/vickyalberto) with 20 2Crafty chipboard styles and a mini re-stock of Dusty Attic chipboard too - over 60 chipboard styles in total to choose from right now. The brand new DA pieces are due to be released soon so I will be doing a large order the day they become available so I can get them into my shop ASAP this Fall.

How does 2Crafty compare to Dusty Attic? They are both cut from 1.8mm chipboard so the main difference is the style variety you get from me carrying both manufacturers in my shop :)

Take a look of some of the 2Crafty I just loaded today...
