Helmar Blog Hop....1st stop

Welcome to your first stop on the Helmar Blog Hop. As a designer for Helmar, I’ve had an opportunity to use some fabulous products. When asked to choose my favorite, I couldn’t possibly do that. Each one of Helmars’ products has its own creative purpose in my crafting. I love to make mini-albums and create layouts for scrapbooks; I chose to feature an adhesive that I reach for most often, Helmar Quick-fix Adhesive Runner.





This is a double sided, acid free, archival and photo safe adhesive. It is perfect for craft, school projects, office, scrapbooking and card making. It is quick and easy to use, providing an even layer of adhesive onto the application surface. Ideal for quickly adhering many light weight items such as cardstock, photos and ribbon. Helmar Quick-fix Adhesive Runner can easily be refilled, just open the dispenser and drop in a new cartridge. Helmar Quick-fix Adhesive Runner allows me to add photos to layouts and projects such as the one featured on this clipboard. This personalized clipboard can hang on you wall as a message board. To make the most of my paper scraps, I was able to create a few cards as well. Enjoy!







Supplies Used:
Helmar Quick-fix Adhesive Runner
Helmar 450 Quick Dry
Helmar Acid Free Glue
Helmar Clear Square ZAPDOTS
My Stamp Box Abundant Blossoms & You Name It Clear Stamps
Fancy Pants Designs Paper & Buttons
Clearsnap Ancient Page Black Dye Inkpad & ColorBox
Heidi Swapp Chipboard Alphabet
Prima Flowers
Making Memories Manila Cards & Envelopes
Various Ribbons, Tulle & Fibers
Clipboard
