Fairie Dust May Page

Hi Lovelies,

I'm back with some wonderful photos to share with you from May's addition to Helen's Fairie Dust Album! Just like the previous months, this page is just stunning and full of mystical little fairies ans sparkling embellishments.

May's design has this gorgeous little stack of fussy cut elements decorated with tiny pearls. This section is the perfect spot to write down some details or you can leave it blank if you wish!

This Fairie Dust Album is full of interactive elements which suits the mystical nature of the album perfectly and makes it a bundle of fun to look through! For this month Helen has designed a miniature book which is both beautiful and practical, allowing you to store multiple photos and providing ample space for journaling!

We're noticing a reoccurring element in all of this albums pages, which is this sparkly glitter thread, and we love it! It's such a simple little element to add to any of your projects if you're looking to ad…

Colourful Carmen Art Journal

Hi Lovelies,

I'm bringing you another post today full of stunning snapshots from inside the glorious art journal belonging to Helen Hollands! This week's Art Journal page gives off Carmen Miranda vibes with vibrant flowers, elegant swirls and splashes of shimmer!

This page features the Laurel Birch 'Blossoming Woman' stamp which Helen has stamped with a black ink and coloured with vibrant colours. This stamp set also comes with a matching die set if you really detest cutting or prefer something a little faster.
After stenciling some flourish swirls Helen has created a cloudy purple and blue background to contrast the colours in the flowers to make them really standout.
From Helen's many years of experience and art studies, she has really mastered the art of pairing colours together. Helen always encourages ladies to mix things up and choose their own colours if they wish but is more than happy to offer guidance when selecting colour combinations. Her classes …

Layout of the Month - May

Hi Lovelies,

Each month at The Scrap N Patch the wonderful Helen designs a new double layout which is sold as a take home kit! As always, the layouts are just stunning and involve many fun techniques!

This month Helen has chosen the exciting new Prima 'Chery Blossom' range to create two pages of delicate pink goodness. 
The Cherry Blossom collection features various pink, grey and white tones and is filled with beautiful cherry blossom flowers and butterflies - everything you need to make a stunning layout!
One of Helen's signature statement accents is the use of chipboard embellishments which are so versatile and can be customised to match your project perfectly. Here Helen has used some fine copper glitter to cover the chipboard and match in with the copper accents in the page. This page really has a special sparkle and shine to it, it's divine!
These gorgeous lace blossoms have been paired with hand-dyed ribbon, delicate feathers and adorable little rose buds to c…

Fairie Dust March & April Page

Hi Lovelies,

Today I'm sharing with you the next addition to our Fairie Dust Album of the Year! If you've seen our  previous posts on this Album, you would know it features the wonderful Graphic 45 Fairie Dust range which is full of beautiful fairies, delicate flowers and many magical patterns, which you will get to see more of below!

Each page of this album has been uniquely designed by the wonderful Helen and there is a stunning new design each month.

March's page design has a gorgeous halo of fussy-cut fairies surrounding your chosen photo in the centre of the page. There is also plenty of space at the bottom of the page to journal some precious memories.

This silver glitter paper is the perfect accompaniment for this Fairie Dust collection, adding just the right amount of sparkle to the page. Helen has also used Giltzin' Glamour to add a small amount of shimmer to the fairies.

Adding various little layers and features to your album makes it really standout. For thi…

Art Journal - Rustic Tress

Hi Lovelies,
I'm back again with some more Art Journal goodness! This week's page has more of an earthy feel to it with plenty of textures and natural tones. 

The colour palette for the page consists of light green, bold orange, and sienna with splashes of blue. Although these are Helen's chosen colours, ladies are more than welcome to mix things up and change them. 
Helen has been loving using tea bags in her pages and so have we! There's nothing better than an excuse to have more cups to tea! Plus you can use them to create incredible pages like this! 

On top of the various layers used to make the background, Helen has used the wonderful technique of repetition and stamped this gorgeous tree pattern to make a lovely feature. Use the Stampendous Script Tree stamp to get the same effect as Helen for this page. 

There is always plenty of room for error in Art Journalling which is half the fun of it!
If you mess something up or aren't happy with a specific layers, n…

Fabulous Foamiran Flowers

Hi Lovelies,

We have been having so much fun at the shop lately making these stunning foamiran flowers!
They turned out beautifully so we just had to share them with you!

These lovely flowers look amazing and are actually so simple to make!

All you need to make these flowers is the fantastic new Couture Creations Foamiran, your favourite flower die, a heat tool, stamens and inks if you wish. The Foamiran sheets make flower making and absolute breeze, as all you need to do is heat and scrunch to form these beautiful flowers!

We added stamens to secure the petal layers together and add some delicate detail to the centre. We have a large collection of these sweet little stamens in-store so you're sure to find some that suit your project!

The fun part about creating your own flowers is getting to customise the colour completely. We used a selection of Tim Holtz Inks to create some gorgeous soft and vibrant flowers.

Once you try making these flowers you won't be able to stop! Add …

Interactive Double Layout

Hi Lovelies,

Today I'm sharing with you another sneak peek of an upcoming double Layout Class whit the wonderful Helen! In this class you will create two stunning layouts using two different ranges, both of them having interactive pieces which makes them super fun to create and look at!

The first layout features the new Bo Bunny 'Cotton Tail' range which is filled with various pastel coloured flowers and patterns with lots of adorable bunnies hidden among them. This layout is perfect for all of those precious Easter photos you would have collected over the past few weeks.

As I mentioned earlier, this layout also features a fun little interactive element, which also doubles on practicality. With this lift out you can add two photos to the one section of the layout or hide a special secret message.

This chipboard sentiment is so gorgeous and intricate! Helen has inked the chipboard to match the layout and added a light coat of crackle accents to make it really standout.
