Helmar Design Team - Product Spotlight of Helmar 450 Quick-Dry Adhesive

Hello everyone, Lydia back to share a Product Spotlight on one of my all time favourite, the Helmar 450 Quick-Dry Adhesive. The project I have created to share today is a little card in inspiration of Summer as here in Australia at the moment it is a little chilly as we are in Winter.


The things that I used for this project are:
  • Helmar 450 Quick-Dry Adhesive
  • Blank white card
  • Patterned Paper
  • Paper doily
  • Alpha bet stickers
  • Embellishments

First things first, I picked out a Heidi Swapp patterned piece of paper and adhered it to my blank card.


Next I adhered a white paper doily to give the card a delicate feel.



I than picked out some embellishments that I knew I wanted to make a cluster with. The embellishments I used was a flair, paper clip, ribbon and some paper flowers. These were all adhered with my trusty Helmar 450 Quick-Dry Adhesive.



And lastly I added the word 'Summer'


Here are some close ups.


So that is my project for my Product Spotlight of my favourite go-to Helmar 450 Quick-Dry Adhesive. I will be back in a few weeks to share yet another project.

The Scrappery CT - 'happy sweet 16th birthday'

Hello Scrappery peeps, Lydia back to finally share another project using the 'Belle' kits. The past few weeks has been crazy with end of semester exams and then a school camp to start the school holidays, and in that process I lost my creative mojo and have been stuck in the ditch trying to get back out of it. But I am back and ready to get the paper and glue back out and to create.

So here is a project a I have been meaning to do a blog post for a few weeks and it is a sweet 16th card I made for one of my friends. I love how this card turned out wit the beautiful florals in the 'Belle' kits.
I did do a little bit of fussy cutting of the florals but it was worth it because they are gorgeous. I did use doily from my stash as it did need something delicate in the background.

I used the fabric Thickers and I also used one of the Cocoa Vanilla wood veneer words that says 'sweet'. I love the addition of the wood veneer and different font within the alpha's.
And of course to finished the card I added some of the beautiful glittery Cocoa Vanilla Studio enamel dots.
So I hope you like this card and I will sure be back very soon to share another project.
I am glad I am back and can't wait to do another blog post.
Hope you have a wonderful week ahead.
