Finishing off Helen’s class … With my usual differences!

It is a running joke that I can’t follow instructions and always end up doing something different from the rest of the class. Well fortunately Helen is quite relaxed about this and hasn’t got an issue with my completely mucking stuff up and then doing something different as a result!

So it will be of no surprise that I didn’t quite do what Helen was suggesting for this page!

Helen’s guide layout was …


And at the end of my class this was my layout …


Today I started to actually finish it off… But somewhere along the way a piece of DSP has gone missing… Not really a surprise considering the mess in the craft room having made it back into a bedroom for my parents… So I had to make some changes! Of course!

So here is where I ended up!


So a change to Very vanilla cardstock and stamped on it the fabulous Hello Doily stamp in Crisp Canteloupe and then placed the other two pieces of DSP onto the base.

Otherwise I pretty much kept it similar but I do have one little detail to note… I did some sewing! I sewed the Elasticated fringe ribbon onto some cardstock to keep it straight before sewing it down. I do love this knicker elastic as it has been fondly nicknamed in our group of crafters, but it is so difficult to stick down straight due to its elasticity… Apparently sewing it to cardstock works though.

My final touches were that of glitter … Courtesy of ‘champagne’ stickles added to the wooden embellishment and to the little punched circles.

So I hope Helen is her usual relaxed self about today’s layout and likes how I changed it! I must admit I love it!

Happy crafting!

  1. Love this on the Vanilla card stock, and the doily stamp goes with it perfectly. I’d originally done it on Tangerine Tango, but didn’t have enough sheets for everyone 😦
