Just My Type!


Good morning all! I'm so excited to get to share with you my very first Helmar project!! This week we have partnered up with Lawn Fawn for a fun filled week of great projects using Helmar and the oh soo, sooo cute Lawn Fawn stamps! I had the pleasure of getting to work with the Just My Type set and oh my, this set is ADORABLE!! I also got to use some great Helmar products! The picture below shows which Helmar products I used in making this card...

I have to admit I'm a first time user (ok, I'm talking GLUE people bahahaha) and I can tell you I have found a new love (shhhh don't tell the hubby) and it's Helmar adhesive's!! I love the 450 Quick Dry and used that to glue my flower and button. I love the fact that it dries clear and dries quick! To attach all my layers to the card, I used the double sided adhesive runner. I know now the layers are not going anywhere and gives me a piece of mind that when this card reaches it's destination it looks just like it did when it left here! The last of the three products I used was the Liquid Scrap Dots and I was just simply amazed at this product!! Even before I made the Helmar design team, I had read many great reviews on this and now that I personally have gotten to use it...everything I read was ABSOLUTELY the truth! I used it on the push pin where the area was to small for a zap dot.
I heat embossed (using Zing embossing powder) the cute typewriter, sentiment and push pin onto black card stock. I added some crystal gems to the keys to bling them up a bit using the I-Rock tool. The ribbon, flower, and button are from my stash. The notebook paper is from my scrap stash and if I remember correctly came from Hobby Lobby. I added some faux stitching and that completes my card!

I want to say THANK YOU KELLY, owner of Lawn Fawn for giving me the privilege of playing with your stamps!! They were so fun to work with and can see me using them over and over!! Also, THANK YOU TRACY for this amazing opportunity to be part of this design team and to be able to use the best adhesive on the market!! I'm going to wrap this up by also saying that I hope I have inspired you
even if it's a little bit to make something creative today! Thanks for looking and have a wonderful day!   Hugs, Leanne
