Hi, my name is Bridget Blake and I was born in Christchurch, New Zealand but after meeting my now husband I live in the beautiful city of Sydney, Australia. I have two beautiful girls who feature in the majority of my scrapbooking pages. I took a long break from scrapbooking when my second child was born but now I am back and I cant seem to stop and I love to learn and try new techniques and ideas. I feel very privileged to be chosen to be part of the Helmar Creative Team and I am looking forward to sharing my passion with you.
Hi I am Raelene from Fraser Coast Qld, I am a Mum of 4, Grandma of 1. I am a Carer and being a carer has taught me the importance of giving myself some time to craft and create. I mainly do Traditional Scrapbooking which I have been doing since June 2005 but I also enjoy Project Life, Card Making, Altered Projects and I have started keeping a simple journal in 2016. My main focus in scrapbooking is memory preservation but I love the creative outlet that scrapbooking and crafting gives me. I love to scrap in all styles from simple and quick to messy mixed media. I love Helmar glues and can’t wait to create projects for you with them.
I’ve been scrapbooking for around 17 years but have always loved crafting from a young age Mixed media is what I like to do the most, it’s a wonderful way to create and to express myself. I believe in sharing the knowledge you gain as well as encourage and give a student the time to be creative on their own.
I’m Lydia Gibson, a 17 year old creative teenager who has a huge passion in documenting her every day. I live with my mum, dad and younger sister in a small country town in south-east Queensland, Australia. I was first introduced to the scrapbooking industry at a young age from my scrapbooking mum, starting with stamping and that’s how I got to what I love to do today. I currently love to document my everyday through my love of photography with Project Life, Traditional 12x12 layouts, Mixed Media and lots more.

Hi! My name is Jean and I live outside of Grand Rapids, MI. I have a twin sister and for the majority of our lives I was the math and science one. I stayed far away from anything that involved art or being creative. However, once I had children, I started scrapbooking. That was in the days of colored cardstock, stickers and deco scissors. A few years, a loss of my job set me out exploring my creative side. I discovered paints, texture paste, mixed media and more. My scrapping and creative projects have expanded to include these fun new materials. With the birth of a granddaughter, I not only have a renewed sense of interest in scrapping but I also am excited to be creating projects for her including room décor, costumes and more. I continue to experiment and learn. One thing that does not change is the need for a good adhesive. I am happy to be showcasing Helmar products in my works! So come along and let’s get creative!
Hi I am Tamiko, single mom, one beautiful daughter. I am paper crafter first and foremost! I believe all things are possible with paper and good scissors. Add quality adhesive and things to write, draw and/or color with and BOOYAH... We are having ourselves nothing but pure JOY and EXCITEMENT and EVERYDAY can be a HOLIDAY! (ha-ha). I do a little bit of everything (smile), although my concentration as of lately has been towards, mixed media, art journaling. I am a practicing social media junky.. if there is an app. out there.. I've heard of it.. possibly used it or have had an account for it. I believe #sharingiscaring and some folks get the best learning experiences from some of the things. One can easily become an educated consumer with few inquisitive search clicks from Pinterest, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr and Bloglovin.
G’day my name is Kristina Randall, I am a Mum of 5 wonderful children, 2 girls who have flown the nest, and three younger boys. I am also a Mum to two perfect Pugs that make me smile everyday. I live in the gorgeous town of Hervey Bay, and I find inspiration around every corner. The beach, the sun, the earth. My main passion is painting, and making experimental pieces. I love mixed media canvases, and just general crafts as well. Resin art and miniatures also make an appearance in my life. A couple of years ago I was dying of Anorexia, and I had honestly given up, but then I found painting, and mixed media. It sparked the life right back into me and I want to give everyone in the world that spark, that love, that life. I want to show the world the most creative ways that Helmar adhesives can be used. I am so excited to be a part of this wonderful talented team.
You can find me on my blog! I can’t wait to show you my passion.
Hi! My name is Jeanne C. Rodriguez , I live in Los Alamos, New Mexico. Many people know our town as the place where the 1st Atomic Bomb was made. It’s a very nice place to raise a family. I have been married 14yrs but together almost 20yrs. I am a mother of 4 children and a 4yr. Old grandson, my older 2 of whom I had with my high school sweetheart, he was killed by a drunk driver. Although we weren’t together at that time, it changed my life. I fell into a deep depression where I could no longer work my job in Forensics. So 3yrs ago in April I needed some kind of outlet to deal with depression and other health issues. That’s how I found this world of crafting. I enjoy everything from altering, card making, mini albums, & recently started in mixed media. It’s helped me a lot. I’m extremely grateful and excited to have been chosen to be a part of the Helmer Creative Team! Can’t wait to share all my ideas with you all! Xoxo
Hi, my name is Vicki-Ann or as most people know me Sandy Beach. I live in a small town in country Victoria, Australia. I am a mixed media artist featuring collage as my main medium. I love infusing bright colours as well as Zendangles into my whimsical pieces. When my hands are covered in glue, paint or ink I am at my happiest. I like to incorporate sewing into my art as I received my first sewing machine at 16 and it’s still the one I use today. You can find me over at instagram @sandybeachart.
Hello, my name is Robyn and I live in Brisbane, Australia. My husband and I have two adult sons and two whippet fur babies who think they are actually humans. I think I’ve always had something creative on the go since I was a kid, and despite pursuing science as a career, I’ve ended up being able to turn my creative skills into something that inspires and teaches others. When our sons were small, I discovered scrapbooking and card making and that has grown to a love of all things inky and painty. Many years ago, I decided to learn the difficult skill of drawing faces which has led me to a whole new world of creativity and I discovered that many of the techniques I’d been using for years with my stamps are part of a whole new genre that we now call ‘mixed media’. I’m happiest when creating something with my beloved rubber stamps or getting painty and inky in my art journals. My other love is photography and I frequently go seeking adventures with my camera in my hand. I’m so lucky to have the opportunity to share my skills and give inspiration to others online via social media. I’m looking forward to sharing my love of Helmar products and the process of creating with you all!
