~HELMAR Blog Hop and GIVEAWAY!

Good morning my beautiful fellow crafters!

Welcome to the HELMAR BLOG HOP!
You know I am always bragging up Helmar Glue
but let me tell you why....
You know I don't talk about the products that don't work for me
but the Helmar 450 Quick dry Adhesive is by far my favorite from day 1!
They did not even know who I was when I began using it,
I had nothing to do with Helmar but I loved their glue so much
I went crazy!
On this project you can see I used
Paper, wood, paint,metal, and acrylic...
you know why I love 450? Because I could use it all over this project
not changing glues or worrying about stopping!
I used the 450 to glue the paper on, 450 to glue the metal on,
and 450 to glue the acrylic onto the back, and for the butterfly onto the
acrylic so it would appear to be floating!
SOOO...do you want to win a bottle of 450 Quick Dry??This bottle?? Well leave me a comment, if you have used Helmar tell me
why you love it! If you have not and have a question feel free to ask!
Don't forget there are giveaways all along this blog hop
and a HUGE giveaway at the last stop (which is next)
your next stop is the last stop HELMAR
http://www.helmarus a.typepad.com/

Hope you felt inspired, hope you had fun with me today!
~Thanks for popping by I love y'all for being my friend~
~Have a beautiful day~
~Pinky~

Well, Pinky I have NOT used Helmar, but your post intrigued me. Take a look at this layout

It sounds like Helmar could have saved me some trouble! Thanks for the chance to win some of it!

sandyh50 said...

Beautiful projects Pinky! I love the fact that you used only the Helmars glue for everything on your project! I would love to win some! Thanks for the chance!

Cathy said...

I have not used it but I'm going to buy it. You have convinced me that I need to try it and when I do, I'm sure I'll be back to Thank you big time!!

Cathy said...

BTW....That project rocks!!

Heather said...

I have never used it but I do have a question. I have a friend who started using the fabritac glue for her papercrafting. Does the helmar get stringy like the fabric tac? Like when I used her fabric tac when you stop squeezing and try to move the bottle away from the paper it strings(kind of like hot glue does?)

*BJ* said...

I haven't used it.. but would love to win it so I could try it........ *BJ* from the Cricut MB

Sandra Wilson said...

I absolutely love your project! Not only do I use the Graphic45 papers all the time I have now used the Helmar adhesives. I too love the Helmar 450 QD and I also love and use frequently the liquid scrap dots. Boy once it is glued, IT IS GLUED! Terrific product.
Thanks for the heads up! Sandra

Leslie said...

I haven't used it either...in fact I hadn't heard of it until you started using it and talking about it. Eager to try it now!

Kraftychick said...

Gosh, I was just looking for something yesterday to substitute for bookbinders glue - I bet this would work!
Thanks for the chance to win!

Lynne said...

Pinky, I have not used Helmar glue. Actually, until now, I've never heard of it!! Sure sounds like you can use it on anything! Is it so?...can it be?...then I def need that!!!
Thank you for stopping by my little blog, and leaving your comment. Hearing about what you have gone through, has certainly helped put things in perspective!! So very glad that I stopped in and left you a comment!! Thanks again!!

{raisingAlexis} said...

I didn't know this glue existed but if it works on all those materials, I am going to try it!

now ... where can I buy it?

Tricia said...

I have not used Helmar glue because I can't find it in my area! I've looked and looked! I heard about Helmar on your blogs and a couple of others too and have been dying to try it!

Pinky said...

Hey Ladies, to answer a couple questions for ya.
Helmar where to buy?? On the side of the Helmar blog there is a few links to buy the glue, if you email me personally I will recommend a specific site that is the cheapest in shipping :) Recommended by several of my friends and they ship right away!!!!!!

Does the glue get stringy, well quite honestly Heather, a little bit BUT I find IF you take the bottle and wipe it slightly on the item you are gluing the string goes away. I mean you cannot "pour" it on, you have to wipe it on then there is not string.

Pinky said...

Yes, it works on paper, metal and all surfaces I have found I love it. I even used it on a wooden pencil with a clay elephant on it for my son because he broke it.

Tona said...

Love your project!
I haven't had a chance to try Helmar 450 but would sure like to.

mE said...

This is GORGEOUS, Pinky! I am starting to dive into vintage altered art and am LOVING it.

I have used Helmar glue... thanks to a tip from you on your lace flower videos. I love the schtuff.

Ippity Chicks said...

OK, girlie, this is just one crazy gorgeous project, I tell you!!!! Not only do I love Graphic 45, but I am in love with the 450 glue, too, it sure sticks down and dries quick!!! You are amazing!!!

Kathy said...

Another great project. Love all the texture you add to them. I am having a difficult time keeping my heavier embellishments to stick. Would love to try the glue.

Kim said...

GORGEOUS, Pinky!! I have heard you speak so highly of this Helmar glue, but I am the type of person who likes "TO SEE, TO BELIEVE"! SO, hopefully I will win me some! Thanks so much for the chance!

Beth Root: Music Teacher said...

Scrapenabler said...

Great project. This has been a great hop seeing all of the wonderful things that can be done with Helmar products.

Robin Gibson said...

Hey fellow CowGirl Pinky~ LOVE this project girl! I LOVE how you made the butterfly 'float'! Great job:) I've never used Helmar, but after seeing you girls awesome projects...I'm all about it, and can't wait to give some a try!

Kim Sonksen said...

I SO need that glue for sure. I have never tried Helmar before but I am on the look for a good adhesive to substitute the one I am using right now.
Your project has me convinced

doverdi said...

Another great project idea & another fun product to try. There is nothing worse than creating a fun project only to have the glue not hold. It's nice to see that one glue can do it all. My list is growing of all these fun Helmar products to look for here in Ontario, Canada.

Shannon Marie said...

you seem to love that glue Pinky! I will have to try it sometime. I'm always struggling with liquid adhesives!

Katie said...

Morning Pinky! Your project for this hop is so pretty & vintagey. I have never used this project & am thinking that it is a "must try!"

*charygirl said...

I love how your butterfly looks like it's floating, no messy goop sticking out!! ;)

StampinCathy said...

This is just one stunning and inspiring project. I just love all the different elements you used and how this adhesive works for all of them. I have to try this product. How can a crafter live without this? Thanks

Renee said...

Hi Pinky, your work is beautiful. I have never tried that glue before. Would love to though.

Cher~ said...

I love Helmar 450. This is one Helmar project I have used and love that it dries clear. I needed an adhesive that glue fast, but not too fast and one that dried clear and one that dried strong to hold two pieces of transparency together. Helmar 450 was the best I tried. It now proudly sits on my adhesive shelf right next to my desk. I would love a chance to win some more b/c I know I'll be running out of it.

CoreyW said...

that.is.GORGEOUS!!! you are so talented!!!!

Lola said...

Soooooooooooo cute! Love the vintage prettiness!

Lola said...

Susan said...

I haven't used Helmar glues yet, but I love the fact that you used one glue for all the different additions to your project. And if it's quick-drying, that's a plus.
Susan
