Today I have the absolute joy of sharing Claudine Hellmuth's whimsical collage tag with you! Four years ago I had the pleasure of being introduced to Claudine and having dinner with her and some friends. Her vivacious spirit and warmth are two of the things I treasure most about her. These traits are evident in every product that she creates! Claudine Hellmuth stamps, paints and embroidery kits have "cheerful" written all over them - they just make me smile from ear to ear!
Claudine also designs THE best printable kits - they bring me back to my days as a child when I would cut out and cloth paper dolls. The hours of joy you will receive from cutting and putting together these little treasures will bring back happy moments from your childhood, or even better provide a gift to a child you know by allowing them the joy of working on these kits!
I have to share this adorable free printable tree with you - I encourage you to give it a try or share it with your child or grandchildren!
You can find more of Claudine's quirky, retro style on each of the projects she shares on her blog Claudine Hellmuth. Psst - I have a little secret - if you head over there now she is giving away one of her fabulous stamp sets, so don't delay visiting her blog!!!
Thank you Claudine for sharing your creativity with us here in the CLASSroom and even more importantly - thank you for sharing your sweet spirit and friendship with me! -Ellen
