A Whole Lot of Color!

Hi everyone! Thought I'd share my layout I made for Helmar. It uses papers and ribbon from Jillibean Soup. This week on the Helmar blog the designers are all featuring projects using Jillibean Soup, so make sure you check it out to see what others have done too. :) Here's my layout:

Isn't it bright and fun! :) The whole layout was put together using Helmar 450 Quick Dry adhesive. It was actually a challenge I gave myself because I was already running out of my favorite Helmar's Quick Fix Adhesive Runner. See, I have always been a tape runner kind of gal. Even after discovering Helmar, I tended to use the runner for most things and the 450 for embellishments, etc., not for paper on paper. But not this time! And now I love it even more! A little bit goes a long way and it stays tight. I was worried that the paper would wrinkle...but it doesn't! (If it does then you put way too much adhesive on it). It was perfect and easy and dried fast. Let me tell you...this will now be my main adhesive for everything. :)

Anyways, those chipboard trees are from Maya Road and then I used a bit of Glimmer Mist from Tattered Angels on the layout too.

And speaking of Helmar...did you see the latest contest???

You can win all of that! Did you see that it includes a Flip Video Camera! How cool is that? You can find out the details about this contest here.

And finally, have you checked out the June issue of ScrapStreet yet?

It is jammed pack with amazing layouts and ideas. AND it includes my first article in it. :) You can find my article here. Let me know what you think!
