Helmar Holiday Hop- HO HO HO!!!!



Jingle bell, jingle bell, jingle bell rock
Jingle bells swing and jingle bells ring
Snowing and blowing up bushels of fun
Now the jingle hop has begun. 
How fitting of a song for the First Annual Helmar Holiday Hop. Filled with Christmas Cheer, holiday inspiration and prizes, prizes, PRIZES!!! I'm so happy that you stopped in today and if you have been following along you should have hopped here from Aymee's blog. I'm always so inspired by the work that  Aymee does and this holiday season is no exception. If you are just starting out, head on back to the Helmar Blog to follow along (and if you get lost along the way).

This holiday season I've done so many projects and I'd like to share a few of them with you that I've created using Helmar V2 Vellum Spray Adhesive and Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive. This is a little Picture heavy so get ready hehe.

First up a wooden project I created using a letter set from Say it With Letters. These are so stinkin fun to alter. All of the papers, flowers, embellishments and ribbons have been adhered to the letters using my favorite liquid glue known to man. Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive is truly a dream to work with.


I absolutely adore how this turned out and I just love the brown, red and green color combination. Let's take a closer look at a few of the letters.

I used a bunch of Glimmer Mist from Tattered Angels on this piece. Suede and Tattered Leather. The roses are painted with Scarlet and the leaves with Key Lime Pie. These colors are repeated throughout the project. Yum Yum!!!





Now for my Quick and Simple project using Helmar V2 Vellum Adhesive. I'm beyond excited to share these glass ornaments with all of you.


 So unbelievably simple to create too. First, grab yourself some inexpensive glass ornaments from Michaels, Hobby Lobby etc. Then you are going to spray the V2 Vellum Adhesive directly into the ornaments. Let them sit for a few minutes and then sprinkle glitter into the ornaments using a filter or a handmade paper cone. Swish glitter around then repeat with the next color! Easy Peasy right?


I love the Really Reasonable Ribbon for the bows. The perfect shades of Blue and Silver are available. 



And there ya have it. Two Holiday gift ideas using Helmar goodness. I bet Santa would love if I left him some Helmar Adhesive with a plate of cookies and something warm to drink. I'm sure the North Pole would switch to Helmar if they aren't using it in the toy factory already. Don't forget that we are giving away tonnes of prizes on the Helmar Facebook Page today and there are 3 amazing classes on U

Now it is time to hop on over to one of our amazing Preferred Partners. Unity Stamp Companys Blog is waiting for you and you are going to love what they have to share. Make sure you leave a comment here to possibly win too. And I've got a HUGE Blog Anniversary candy post HERE, (right above this post) so don't miss that either. Over 900 bucks of Holiday Cheer up for grabs.

Jingle Bell Rock

Jingle bell, jingle bell, jingle bell rock
Jingle bells swing and jingle bells ring
Snowing and blowing up bushels of fun
Now the jingle hop has begun.
Jingle bell, jingle bell, jingle bell rock
Jingle bells chime in jingle bell time
Dancing and prancing in Jingle Bell Square
In the frosty air.
What a bright time, it's the right time
To rock the night away
Jingle bell time is a swell time
To go gliding in a one-horse sleigh
Giddy-up jingle horse, pick up your feet
Jingle around the clock
Mix and a-mingle in the jingling feet
That's the jingle bell,
That's the jingle bell,
That's the jingle bell rock.
