I started out with a resin cross and adhered spring flowers with Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive. As you can see in the photo, I placed a generous squeeze of adhesive on the back of this white rose, then adhered it to the cross. I placed all the flowers and sentiment to get an attractive arrangement, then started adhering. This is the last flower to go on the cross.
I selected this Easter Scripture stamp to use and die cut a tag to fit the size of my stamp. I stamped in a coordinating color and heat embossed with clear embossing powder for extra dimension. The tag is adhered with Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive.
In no specific order please give a big welcome to our new Helmar Design Team!
I started scrapbooking in 2001 after the birth of my first born and became quickly hooked. Right now you can find me near St Louis with two boys, a Marine, a cat named Pablo and two dogs! From there my passion went to hybrid and digital scrapbooking and designing. I think my style varies from one medium to the next but I try and find balance in every project that I create ;) I've had many ventures from designing products for Dream Street Papers, Pink Paislee, MiDesign@Michaels, PageFrames, Coolihah App, TapNScrap App and Magistical Memories to being on digital/hybrid and paper design teams.
Hello, I’m Tracey and reside in northeast Ohio with my amazing husband, Gary. Our family and faith have always been an important part of our lives. We have been blessed with four wonderful children, and with two weddings in as many years, our family is growing. I'm a shabby chic mixed media artist and enjoy the creative outlet of paper crafting. I’ve been creating and crafting for as long as I can remember and use many of those skills on my projects. I adore learning new techniques along the way and enjoy sharing my projects along with tips and techniques on my blog. I also design for Donna Salazar Designs, Once Upon A…Sketch and Leaky Shed Studio. I’m a huge fan of Helmar products and am so excited and honored to be a part of the Helmar team!
Since childhood, I am happiest when I have paint and glue on my hands! Playing with new products and getting messy is time well spent in my book. I create a variety of mix media signs, cards, and altered art, and my creative style ranges from cute and fun to clean and simple which I sell in a local gallery called the Art MoB. My latest passion is art journaling, lettering, typography and collecting quotes. My grandest achievement so far, has been my being commissioned to paint a huge fiber glass bear which will be auctioned off for charity in the end of the 2014 summer. When I am not crafting I am photographing wildlife and hiking through our lovely North Carolina mountains. I am 55 years old, single and deliriously happy checking off my bucket list as I go along in life. -

Hi I’m Katie, I am an artist currently living in Dallas. I doodle on everything I can get my hands on and love everything crafty such as scrapbooking, mixed media, drawing, sewing, crocheting, etc, but my favourite projects are always the paper and mixed media projects. One of the most crucial tools used in crafting is of course adhesive and I use a lot of it, so i am thrilled to be on the Helmar design team. I have a blog Punk Projects, where I post tutorials, inspiration and other fun things as well as designing custom shoes in my etsy shop. When I’m not crafting, you can usually find me cycling, camping or working in the garden.
I have been paper crafting for 10 years, I love everything there is about this amazing industry. I owned my own scrapbook store for over 4 years, and sold it a couple of years ago when we relocated to the cold northern prairie of Aberdeen, SD. Now you can find me designing and creating in my studio. I love what I do! I have been married to the most wonderful man who supports all of this for almost 28 years. We have two kids, Alex and Maxenzi, two grand kids and a bunch of fur babies! Life is good!
Hello, my name is Nicole. I live in northern UT with my three boys: husband Brandon and our two boys Wesley (11) and Thomas (2). Yep, you read that right my boys are nine years apart in age. It has its challenges at times, but it's so much fun to have another little person running around here. I work part time in the mornings as a cake decorator and the rest of the day I'm the regular SAHM. I found scrapbooking when my oldest son was about 7 months old and have been addicted since. I never ever imagined I would be a scrapbooker, but here I am combining my love of color, design, photos, and memories into one love. I've been doing design work in the scrapbook industry for about nine years. I've worked for several scrapbook manufacturers, monthly kit clubs, and have been published in quite a few major scrapbook magazines.
Hello, my name is Kisha Walton and I'm beyond excited to become a part of the Helmar DT family. I'm married to the most loving and supportive husband ever, and the mother of two wonderful young men. I work as a Social Insurance Specialist by day and a crafter by night. I dabble in a few different crafts, however scrapbooking has been my heart since 1999 when I first began. I love to create using various textures, mediums, inks and adding lots of layers to my projects. My favourite things to create are cards, layouts, mini albums and altering items.
My name is Monica Edwards and I am the mother of 2 older children and I currently work at the Kennedy Space Center and I love it! I have been crafting over 20 years but stepped into the blog world in the past 3 years. I consider my style to be well not sure because I love it all. Some days I am vintage, whimsy, fun and bright just depends on the mood I am in. My goal is to inspire others through my work and I would like to say your projects are only as good as the adhesive behind it!
Hi everyone! I'm Katie, here for my first post as part of the Helmar design team! If you want to get to know me check out my blog, punk projects, where I post my art. Now, onto my project for today:
I'm a bit of a bookworm and I love creating mixed media bookmarks like these. I used Helmar adhesives to not only adhere all of my paper down, but also to add texture. I took a few photos of the process to show you how.
Then I used the Helmar Craft & Hobby PVA glue to add tiny dot around the edges of my bookmarks. The trick to this is to only open your glue nozzle a little bit, if it's too loose a lot more glue will come out. I just wanted small dots.
After the glue was fully dry, I smeared gelatos over it. and used my finger to blend them in.
To make my textured glue dots stand out a bit more, I went over them with a gold paint pen and also added a bit of stamping.
