I {Heart} Helmar

A couple of days ago, I received the most incredible news!!! Keeping my mouth shut about it was really, REALLY hard! Who am I kidding? I blabbed about it to my bff and a couple of others that I knew would not tell a soul. I couldn’t believe the email I received and had to read it a few times before it really sank in. Tracy from HELMAR, you know, the company that makes the most incredible crafting adhesives imaginable, contacted me and let me know that I was being the opportunity to be a Guest DT for their blog!!! I STILL can’t believe it, but sure enough the GDT list that was posted this morning has me on the list! {still giddy over the news!}

In case you are not familiar with Helmar’s products, here’s a pic that shows a lot, but not all, of what they make:

They make high quality, scrapbook-friendly adhesives that really do what you would want/expect an adhesive to do…STICK! Some of their products are incredibly innovative and I haven’t come across anything I could possibly replace them with. I have no idea how I ever crafted with my Helmar!

Some of my favorite products made by Helmar:

450 Quick Dry – This is a thicker, clear liquid adhesive that works fabulously on ribbons and trims. Handmade flowers are a snap with this wonder! It also works with just about anything! You can use it on acryllic, metal, wood, paper, chipboard, cardboard, canvas and the list goes on and on!

Premium Craft Glue – This fantastic, clear liquid glue is a lot like the 450 Quick Dry, but it isn’t as thick and takes a bit longer to dry. For ribbons and Trims, I prefer the 450, but for other applications, this is a more cost effective solution. Not recommended for acryllic

Liquid Scrap Dots – I can’t say enough about this amazing product!!! Have you ever had a fussy cut piece that you wanted to give dimension, but couldn’t because it was so intricate you wouldn’t be able to raise it with foam dots/tabs? Liquid Scrap Dots to the rescue! This stuff is amazing! It comes in a tube and you just apply as much as you need, where ever you need it and voila! Incredible levels of dimension! Want even more dimension? Apply a dab, let it dry and add another layer!!! You control the depth…get as much or as little lift as you want! Simply brilliant!

Acid Free Glue – White glue that dries clear. This is the one you want when you’re looking for a flexible hold that does not yellow. You can use it for book binding or even for decoupage!

V2 Vellum Adhesive – An incredible spray adhesive that is perfect for so much more than just vellum! Works great with acryllic, chipboard, cardboard and GLITTER too! On vellum, it simply vanishes…just imagine an adhesive where your vellum doesn’t ripple and you don’t need to try to hide where you’ve applied it, because it doesn’t show through! Works like a dream! Just think of the magic you could create with an adhesive like this…you could even use it to apply vellum to acryllic with no need to hide either side!!! What other adhesive gives you this kind of versatility?

Helmar also makes an adhesive runner, gemstone glue, fabric glue, 2 step crackle medium and Zap Dots (these are like foam dots for dimension and are available in clear, white and black and in various sizes). Be sure to check some of these products out today! If your LSS does not carry them, there are many fabulous online retailers now carry a wide variety of their products. Twopeasinabucket.com now carries Helmar as well as Scrap-tastic.com They also have a link on their site for other retailers. You can even find Helmar on facebook!

I’ve Been “Published” by Practical Scrappers!

Practical Scrappers has kindly published 2 of my layouts on their site, so I thought I would share the info and links. 😀 The first one is the one they featured more recently. It was my Let Them Eat Cake layout of Madison on her first birthday. I used all Webster’s Pages Lullaby Lane products, stickles, and chalk ink:

This one is featured on their Little Girl Projects post.

The second, Baby Kiwi, was actually published first, but I must have somehow missed their email that provided the publication banner. For this one, I used an older Bo Bunny line called Pet Shop and posted about it previously on my blog here if you’d like more info. This one was featured on their Little Boys Projects post:

TFL!

Comments are always welcome and appreciated. 😀 Be sure to stop by on Monday, April 25th for details on a fabulous, scrappy giveaway! It’s my birthday and I love to share! 😀
