HELMAR HOLIDAY HOP

Helmar Holiday Hop-



It’s that time of year where we all start thinking of the holidays so what better way to get your Holiday spirit than a great Helmar Holiday Hop? Filled with so much Holiday cheer and some amazing projects featuring all the different Helmar Adhesives.


Hello everyone and welcome to my stop on the Helmar Holiday Hop. If you have been following along, you should have hopped here from CAROLYN'S blog. If not, you just have to stop at the Helmar Blog and start from the beginning. There are goodies along the way and we don’t want you to miss a thing.
this layout actually looks waaaaay cooler up close than in a scan.  i used helmar's CRACKLE MEDIUM on the letters and the snowflake.


i used a thicker coat on the snowflake for a little more of a dramatic look:


i went with a lighter coat on the letters:
but wait...there's more!!
on both layouts, i used my all time favorite quick fix adhesive runner helmar:

i also glued my chipboard letters on with 450 quick dry adhesive.





Make sure you leave a comment at every stop because the elves of Helmar will be giving away prizes to some lucky Helmar fans. Now hop on over to CHERYL'S blog to see another amazing Helmar Holiday project. The Holiday Hop will be open for comments until 11:59P.S.T December 4th , so take a look and enjoy a little holiday spirit from all of us on the Helmar Team. Thanks again for stopping by today and Happy Holidays.

Your pages are so lovely! Yep boxes and tissue paper stay important for a very long time! lol
You mentioned a scan of that page? What size is your scapbook page? If 12x12 what kind of scanner do you have? Ok so another question...what program are you using to put the cool black mat behind some of your pictures?
Kindest regards,
Jennifer
