We Love Helmar's Holiday Blog Hop!

Hi everyone, Nikki here today, welcome to my stop on the Helmar Holiday Hop. If you have been following along, you should have hopped here from Beck Beattie’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!
Recently my sweet grandma passed away and I was able to keep her little mini kitchen tree that now is in  my kitchen all decorated with homemade ornaments. This trees is so special because not only is it my grandma's tree but all the paper ornaments are from my Christmas paper line "Gingerbread Land" that I just released this Fall and I used my favorite adhesive, Helmar, to create the ornaments.  







Here are the adhesives I used to make these ornaments:


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 Carolyn King’s blog to see another amazing Helmar Holiday project. The Holiday Hop will be open for comments until 11:59 P.S.T December 4th, so take a look and enjoy a little holiday spirit. Thanks again for stopping by today and Happy Holidays.
-Nikki

BEAUTIFUL tree, and what a great use of Nikki's papers combined with Helmar's great glues. I bought a few tubes of Scrap Dots and haven't figured out how I want to use them yet. I think I'll go look for some tutorials/ideas. Thank you for the reminder. And Merry Christmas to all at NSS!!
