Some Helmar Hopping Fun




Today we are so excited to share with you a variety of fantastic masculine projects.

We've put our Helmar arsenal to good use and want to share with you some inspiration for those last minute Fathers Day gifts.

If you have been following along, you should have hopped here from Carisa's blog.


If not, hop on back to the Helmar Blog and enjoy.

Make sure to leave comments along the way, because we will have prizes up for grabs.

AND....
If the Man in your life is super lucky, we may even send him a Helmar prize pack too.


Even though Father's Day here in Australia isn't till September, I love being organised!

It was great to be able to get some cards sorted for my father and father in law now to pop into my card box.

Especially as masculine cards can be a little difficult to create.

Well not this time thanks to a little bit of help from Helmar.

Card for my Dad
 Remember keeping it simple is the key to getting cards done quickly!
And just because I was so super organised I was able to get down and dirty with lots of Helmar and created a layout about my husband's love of 4WDing!

The secret to this layout was lots of Helmar Acid Free Glue, Paper Napkins, Texture Paste and not being afraid to make a major mess and just go with it...

But you will have to check out how I use this technique next week with another layout I created using the same technique!
