Helmar Helmar Helmar... oh and a bit of "Nikki Sivils" too!

I'm running a bit late this morning so my part of this blog post is going to be short and sweet! Yesterday's winner of the December 4th giveaway is...  "A Sarasota" who said "Congrats, Misty!!!
My fave treat is chocolate biscotti... yum, yum. 
We have to drive an hour to get to a Sonic, boo hoo....: -(
Make it a great day!
Alecia 
Alecia email me your address and I'll get this out to you next week! Congrats! 

Today is Helmar's Holiday Hop!! Woo to the Hoo!!! If you read my "favorite" things list last week you know Helmar was on it! I LOVE HELMAR! 
And so do my design team girls....
Here are their creations and their favorite Helmar adhesive! 
Created by:Mimi, Mimi said she loves Helmar White Zapdots! 

Julie Tucker-Wolek created two projects...



 Julie's 2nd project....

Julie used:
Helmar's 450 Quick Dry and Helmar's Scrap Dots!
Julie said this about Helmar: 
"My FAVE Helmar product is their 
Scrap Dots!! They are AMAZING! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):)"

Here is Linda Beeson's project:


Here is how Linda created these super cute treat bags:
I used on piece of scallop circle patterned paper 
and cut it exactly in half and made a little candy holder from each half by folding it in thirds.  
I used the Helmar Acid Free Glue, Helmar square Zap Dots and Helmar Scrap Dots.  I glued the bottom 
portion and the folded flaps with the Acid Free Glue and I was amazed at how quickly that 
glue dried and how firm the hold is. I often have trouble finding a glue that will hold projects
like this so I am loving this glue. I used the stickly Zap Dots to hold the little cello bags inside
of the candy holder and the Scrap Dots helped glue the cut out die cuts to the fronts of the holders
with a little bit of dimension. 

Cutest Santa by Janis Medina-Maghinay

Helmar Products used:
Helmar Acid-Free Glue
Helmar Gemstone Glue
Zapdots
Janis said this about Helmar...
"I love that the acid--free glue adheres my papers easily and that it doesn't crumple them.  The gemstone glue is a must-have for those tiny blings without the cloud!!!  As I love having layers and dimensions on my layouts, the Zapdots are my go-to foam dots - - I have them in all sizes!!!"

Okay so if you are doing the Helmar Blog hop you should've come from Tracy's blog and after my blog you'll be going to...
