Helmar "Red, White, and Blue" blog hop


Hello everyone and welcome to the Helmar Red, White, and Blue Hop. We have a bunch of wonderful projects to share with all of you and wanted to celebrate the colors of our design team with you. Australia, Canada and America are shining brightly, so grab a glass of your favorite beverage and lets get hopping.


This layout features papers from the "Vintedge" collection by Ruby Rock-it.   This time for all the papers I used Helmar Premium Craft Glue.


I used 450 Quick Dry for the corrugated cardboard, and to tack down the twine in any places where the staples wouldn't reach.


The 450 quick dry was also a big help with the chipboard letters.


If you get lost along the way, you will find the order below. Make sure you leave your comments on every stop for your chance to win. We will select 1 Canadian, 1 American, and 1 Australian individual. So that is 3 prizes total. Now lets get hopping.
