Some Autumnal background papers and a bag topper template


Hello everyone,

I hope that you are all well.

I still don't feel great and I'm findng it hard to concentrate on a new card kit. I quite enjoyed making some background papers last week so I thought I would make some more this week.

The leaves on the Beech tree in our garden are already starting to change colour and fall. In fact, the whole garden is now past it's best and starting to look very brown. Autumn is definitely on it's way!

That's what has inspired me to make some Autumn themed background papers in shades of brown and orange. They are available in both A4 size and 12x12 size for those of you who prefer a larger format. The paper designs are the same in both packs, it's only the sheet size that varies, so I'll just show the A4 pack here.

I've also worked up a template for my bag toppers in case you fancy making some yourselves as Halloween is only just round the corner as well.

I hope that you will find these new Helping Hands Accessories useful.


Twelve A4 or 12x12 Autumn Leaves Background Papers




These co-ordinating sets of autumn leaves background papers would be a useful addition to either your card making or your scrapbooking stash that you can use again and again.

The A4 paper pack contains twelve 300dpi A4 (2480 x 3508 pixels) jpg sheets of background papers and the 12x12 paper pack contains twelve 300dpi 12x12 (3600x3600) jpg sheets.

You can find the A4 size papers HERE and the 12x12 size HERE.


Bag Topper Template – CU/PU




You can use this template to make your own bag toppers - just add your own graphics. The bag topper measures approximately 13cm/5.1 inches wide by 8cm/3.15 inches high when folded (13cm/5.1 inches by 16cm/6.3 inches unfolded). It can be used to dress the top of a 5 inch wide bag full of goodies.

This template is for Commercial Use as well as Personal Use, so you may sell any printable bag toppers you make using it (but not give them away free) provided they are only sold as merged jpg sheets. The template itself may NOT be sold. It can also be used to make handmade bag toppers for personal use or for sale.

Designer credit is required when this template is used to make printable bag toppers for sale but not if you are just using it to make your own handmade bag toppers for sale. Though credit is always appreciated.

A single template sheet is included in four different file formats: jpg; png; psd; and psp files; making this template useable in most graphics programs.

That's all my news for today.

Take care.

A sweet snowman card


Hello everyone,

I hope you’ve all had a better weekend than me as I’ve not felt great. I’ve still managed to keep busy though, as it helps to take my mind off the pain, so I’ve got a new card kit in my store.


A Wonderful Time of Year Shaped Fold Card Kit




This sweet shaped Christmas card comes with a blank sentiment panel so that you can also devise your own sentiments and a choice of inserts (one with a greeting and one without).

The card can be left unlayered and used as a quick card or you can add the optional decoupage layers that are included. It comes with a co-ordinating envelope though it is also designed to fit a standard 6x6 inch envelope if you only want to make the card. Step by step instructions are included on each of the sheets.

This kit contains SEVEN sheets to choose from:

  • a shaped card base sheet
  • a layers sheet with the optional decoupage layers for the front of the card plus a blank sentiment panel layer
  • a sheet with a fully shaped insert which has been left blank for your own greeting or message
  • an alternative insert sheet with a greeting (Warmest Wishes for the Season)
  • an envelope front sheet
  • an envelope back sheet
  • a matching backing paper that you can print onto the reverse side of the card base sheet if you would like the inside of the card to be patterned

All the sheets are 300dpi, high resolution sheets, for quality printing.

Some Halloween background papers


Hello everyone,

I’m still having a little break from making card kits at the moment and have made some background papers for a change as it’s quite a while since I last made any.

I'm still in a Halloween mood so it's a set of Halloween backgrounds in both A4 and 12x12 size which should keep any scrapbookers happy as well as card makers. The paper designs are the same in both packs, it's just the size that's different, so I'll only add a picture of one of the packs.


Twelve A4 or 12x12 Halloween Background Papers




These co-ordinating sets of Halloween background papers would be a useful addition to either your card making or your scrapbooking stash that you can use again and again.

This A4 paper pack contains twelve 300dpi A4 (2480 x 3508 pixels) jpg sheets and the 12x12 paper pack contains twelve 300dpi 12x12 (3600x3600) jpg sheets.

Hello everyone,

I hope that your week has got off to a flying start.

This co-ordinating set is very quick and easy to make. Step by step instructions are included on each of the sheets.

This kit contains TWO sheets:

  • a sheet with the pillow box

A pair of cute ghosts!


Hello everyone,

That's another week been and gone in a flash. I hope you had a good one.

I have spent this week working on a customer request that I received a while back for a colourful ghost card for a boy.

I tried to meet this request a while back but it ended up morphing into a cute witch card instead. I managed to stick with it this time after I came across this cute pair of ghosts. It turned into a high contrast card rather than a purely colourful one but I hope that you'll still like it Cathy and that it will be a hit with your son.

If it's of interest to anyone else, here it is:


Ghostly Greetings Easel Card Kit




I received a request for a colourful ghost card for a young boy and this kit is the result. I hope it may appeal to other people as well. Two different sentiment panel layers are included for the stop making it suitable for a Birthday as well as for Halloween. A blank panel is also included to allow you to tailor it for other occasions as well.

This card comes with a co-ordinating envelope though it is also sized to fit a standard 5x7 inch envelope if you only want to make the card. Step by step instructions are included on each of the sheets.

This kit contains EIGHT sheets to choose from:

  • a sheet with the easel base panel with a blank greetings panel for your own message or greeting
  • a sheet with an alternative easel base panel with a greetings panel with a verse (Hope you have a spooktacular day!)
  • two sheets with the easel top panel and the optional decoupage layers for the top panel
  • a sheet with the easel stop panel; two sentiment panel layers for the stop panel (Happy Boo-Day! and Happy Halloween); plus a blank sentiment panel layer that you can use to devise your own sentiments
  • an envelope front sheet
  • an envelope back sheet
  • a backing paper sheet for you to print onto the reverse side of the easel base and first top panel sheet if you want the back of your card to be patterned


All the sheets are 300dpi high resolution sheets for quality printing.

A pretty floral easel card kit for poppy lovers


Hello everyone,

I hope you had a great weekend.

I made a Birthday card for my sister last week. She adores poppies so it had to be a card featuring poppies in some way.

I must admit that I didn't find it easy to source some suitable poppy graphics so I had a couple of false starts getting something suitable to come together until I came across these stunning vintage poppies and immediately fell in love with them. They seemed to compliment Pam's lovely painting perfectly.

I then decided to make it into a card kit so that other people could make it too, so I hope you like it as much as my sister does.


Poppy Meadow Easel Card Kit




This pretty multi-use easel card will partilcularly appeal to anyone who loves poppies. Seven different sentiment panel layers are included for the stop as well as a blank panel so that you can also devise your own sentiments. It’s suitable for a wide range of occasions including: Birthdays; Mother’s Day; saying thank you or hello; telling someone you are thinking of them; wishing someone well; or just sending a friendly greeting.

This card comes with a co-ordinating envelope though it is also sized to fit a standard 5x7 inch envelope if you don’t want to make the matching envelope. Step by step instructions are included on each of the sheets.

This kit contains EIGHT sheets:

  • a sheet with the easel base panel with a blank greetings panel for your own message or greeting
  • two sheets with the easel top panel and the optional decoupage layers for the top panel
  • a sheet with the easel stop panel; two of the sentiment panel layers for the stop panel (Happy Birthday and Happy Mother’s Day); plus a blank sentiment panel layer that you can use to tailor the card for other occasions
  • a sheet with five alternative sentiment panel layers for the stop panel (Especially for You; You are in our thoughts; Wishing you well; Thank you so much; and Just saying hello)
  • an envelope front sheet
  • an envelope back sheet
  • a backing paper sheet for you to print onto the reverse side of the easel base and first top panel sheet if you want the back of your card to be patterned


All the sheets are 300dpi high resolution sheets for quality printing.
