Stuck Sketches Play Along plus a Canvas!

Hi all,

School is out and I have 3 weeks holidays (well actually only 2 weeks and a few days as I've already had 4 days of holidays). Anyway, I have lots of scrappy plans for the next few weeks as I'm:

  • a guest designer for two sketch sites
  • doing a video collaboration with a fellow YouTuber
  • part of a stamping hop
  • also creating videos for The Crafty Maven Getaway and Challenge Your Stash (my usual 2 commitments)
I wanted to play along with the 15th June sketch from Stuck Sketches so I'm sneaking in just before it ends. I have also recorded the process for this layout and it will be my collaboration video with Anna that will be out on the 2nd July, but more about that in a few days. Here is the sketch and the layout:

Plus I had the next instalment of my 'Friends' canvas series that I'm creating for a group of ladies that are all celebrating a special birthday this year. I have to admit that this canvas is my favourite one so far.

Well that's it for now, I'll be back in a few days with my sketch guest designer share and then my video collab.

Take care and happy crafting,

Helen xx

Challenge Your Stash - June

Hi all,

Today is the day for next instalment of our Challenge Your Stash series on YouTube. This month we had to make layouts using paint, doilies and sequins and this is the layout I created:

It's about one of the gorgeous girls in my class at school. I also used the this month's sketch from Anna's Craft Cupboard which looks like this:

Here is the link to the video:

Also the links to the other ladies' videos are: 
Well that's it for now, I must get back to writing my school reports!!! Take care and happy scrapping, Helen xx

Guest Designer for Stuck Sketches

Hi all,

It was a nice surprise when I looked at the wrap up for the May sketches on the Stuck?! Sketches blog to find out that I'm going to be the guest designer for the June 15th sketch! Yay happy dance here.

Mind you July is going to be a busy month as not only be a guest designer over on Stuck Sketches I am also the guest designer for Let's Get Sketchy, also I'm doing a video collaboration with a YouTube buddy and we are having celebrations for our 2nd birthday over on The Crafty Maven Getaway, lucky for me I have 3 weeks school holidays!

Well that's it for now, take care and happy crafting,
Helen xx

Scraplift Saturday: Surf+Sun=Fun Helen Mazengarb

Hi all,

My latest video for The Crafty Maven Getaway Channel is up this weekend. It's Scraplift Saturday and I've taken inspiration from Audrey Yeager and Missy Whidden, who both posted layouts using sunbursts this past week. I had lots of fun with this one.

Hope you enjoy it.

Take care and happy crafting,

Helen xx
