It’s that time of year where we all start thinking of the holidays.  So what better way to lift your Holiday spirit than a great Helmar Holiday Hop filled with 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 Lydell’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.

Let me show you my project!
 This is a layout of my daughter made with Prima papers, Dusty Attic chipboard and of course, Helmar adhesives!  In the photo she was less than a year old.
 I created the layered title by using Zapdots (cut into thinner strips) and V2 Vellum Adhesive.  I tend to use Zapdots on all of my projects because I love to add dimension to my work.  This was the first time I have tried the V2 Vellum Adhesive and I have to say... I absolutely love it!  It's a repositional adhesive that sprays on and HAS NO ODOR!!  YAY!!!!!  I use chipboard elements on all of my projects, and this adhesive is perfect to avoid glue seepage from the sides.
 This is the other half of my title.
 This chipboard element made by The Dusty Attic was named after me!!  It's called 'Lacing Tash'.  I altered it with paint, ink and embossing powder to add texture.  Then I laced ribbon through the holes and added pearls to further decorate the piece.  You can find the tutorial for my lacing technique HERE.
 This cluster is made up of mulberry and satin flowers, vintage charms and a resin flower.  Each element was adhered with either Zapdots or 450 Quick Dry Adhesive for a layered look.
 The large resin embellishment was adhered with Zapdots as well.
 This gorgeous scroll (Scroll #6 DA0578) was painted, inked and embellished with rhinestones.  I cut the chipboard scroll into several pieces and positioned it around my photo.

All of the stitching on this layout was done by hand.  :o)

I hope you enjoyed my layout.  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 Martha’s blog to see another amazing Helmar Holiday project.
