Helmar Holiday Hop!!!

**I have an open giveaway in the post below too...don't miss it! Scroll down or click here.




Welcome! Hopefully you've come here from Cathy, but if not--we would love for you to join us at the beginning of the hop on the Helmar blog! You won't be disappointed and will find tons of gift ideas and wonderful holiday inspiration. Make sure to leave a comment at every stop on the hop for a chance to win prizes...and there's a lot of great prizes! Spreaking of prizes...Helmar will also be giving them away all day on the Helmar Facebook page...so make sure you "like" them and pay attention to their posts today. :)

So for my project today I am sharing a gift I made to give to my mom for Christmas. Good thing she doesn't read me blog. :)

I actually sat down with the boys and we all got a canvas and some paint...and made Christmas gifts. My mom will probably like Austin and Hayden's better then mine, but that is ok! ;) Here's how mine ended up looking:



I used Helmar Premium Craft Glue for almost all of it. That little bird in the left bottom corner is a sticker and I wanted it popped up a bit...so I used Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots for that. BTW...that stuff is THE BEST!!! Here are some close up's:


Had to add the grandkids. :)

Stickers are really hard to get to stay on canvas...believe me, I have tried before. But a dab of the Helmar Premium Craft Glue works like a charm!!!



And now it is time to move on to the lovely Jessica.

blog hop

Have a wonderful Holiday season! And stay tuned to my blog because I will be posting lots more Christmas gift ideas. :)
