~Wednesday, what an amazing day ahead & Helmar GIVEAWAY!!!!~

Good morning! I am so excited today because Cindy Conkerr
is coming to meet me at 10:00am!
What a blessing this will be, I am very excited! I will take pictures for sure!

Meanwhile...do you want to win some V2 Adhesive from Helmar?
Keep on reading! :) Pay no attention to the dork behind the camera! LOLOK on to the "experiment"
Gail had a GREAT question on my Helmar project the other day,
she asked if the V2 spray glue (Vellum adhesive) would stay affixed or if it fell apart like
other adhesives she had used. You all know I am the no BS girl, so I called
Helmar and decided to give it a good old fashioned experiment and this is what
they told me, and what I found! :)

They told me the bond is permanent, it does not dry out and fall off.
I wanted to test it out for myself and share with y'all.
I sprayed the Helmar V2 Vellum Adhesive on both cardstock and paper yesterday.
I left it overnight because I wanted to see if it was going to fall off.
Now this morning when I got up
This is what happened, I tried to tear the Hambly off and it tore my cardstock.
Now remember I sprayed both sides to stick it together and you can see
it is still clear.
*I am NOT compensated by Helmar for this, this experiment is
completely on my own for my crafty friends who have asked me*
Gail, thanks for the awesome question! I hope this
answers it for ya, this Hambly ain't going anywhere LOL

Here are a few FREE SVG files for your Cri-kit Pens :)
Great for drawing, I also layered the flower so you can draw then different colors
on different layers, easy peasy right?
Just click the picture to download.

sandyh50 said...

Hi Pinky! I always need glue! I love your svg files and bit the bullet and bought the sure cuts alot program on Sun. I have been looking at it and tried the free trial. I decided it will save me a lot of money in the long run since cartridges are so expensive.

I have a silly question ..can the vellum spray adhesive be used for things other than vellum ? I don't work with alot of vellum.

I'd love to try some of the Hellmar products if we could find them here in the USA..and even more locally... We use alot of glue's here in this house!
