1st Annual Helmar Halloween Howler Hop

Hey there everyone and welcome to my little spot in the crafty universe. Today is a fantastic day filled with Halloween and Fall inspired projects from your Helmar Design Team. If you have been following along the hop, you should have hopped here from Tracy's Awesome blog. Talk about freakin scary talent!!! If you haven't been hopping with us today, go on back to the Helmar Blog and start from the top. There are so many amazing projects, and I don't want you to miss a thing (including a HUGE Helmar blog candy giveaway)

I've got a few projects to share with you today using my favorite Helmar products. The first project is a Halloween Banner that features Heaven in a Tube AKA Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots. Many of you that do stop by here or the Helmar blog, know how much I love this stuff. I can't make a project without it!!!

I've used two great Halloween paper lines. One from Cosmo Cricket and the other from Nikki Sivils. Love how they work together. The banner itself is from Nikki Sivils too. It is called the Tag Chipboard album and is perfect for banners.


Ain't that beyond sweet. Those little ghosts just pop right up with the help of Heaven in a Tube. I love the little bit of crepe paper to make the letters stand out.


Just a little Stickles for some sparkle and some oozing drips...


Look at all of those layers!!! Using Liquid Scrap Dots gives any project the dimension you need.

Now for my second favorite product, I just had to make a statement with glitter. Any of you that know me, know that I'm part magpie. Gemstone Glue is such an amazing adhesive to work with and I love love LOVE how it can be painted onto a project to really define things. I used a small bristled paintbrush to apply Gemstone Glue to each separate area of the project. Adding PK Glitz glitter, then starting on the next area. What did I create you ask??? My Fall ballgown. Now to find a place to wear it around these parts lmao.


All of those little rhinestones are also attached to the dress form using Gemstone Glue. This stuff is beautiful and dries perfectly for things like gems, glitter, mirrors, and glass. Not to mention beads, and metal and fabric and and and. Maybe I should start calling it Heaven in a Bottle.... hmmmm

The ribbon is available at Really Reasonable Ribbon, where you can also buy some Helmar products.



Whatcha think? Have you gotten that crafty mojo for Autumn and Halloween projects pumpin!?! Well there is more I tell ya. Before you head on over to Laura's Blog, make sure to leave some love here.
