Here is a little bit about this project from Andrea: I made some Thanksgiving Decor showcasing the beautiful Core’dinations cardstock all held together perfectly with Helmar Adhesives! All of my cuts were done using the Thanksgiving Cricut cartridge. I cut the pilgrims out at 5 3/4″ each, using Signature Series Graphic 45 Core cardstock in Photogenic and Kraft and green Core from the Tim Holtz Adirondack collection. I also cut out the pumpkin design at 2″, again using some orange Core from the Adirondack collection. That beautiful embossed word collage background is some of the new Tim Holtz collection Kraft-Core Seasonal Impressions line! It’s the most wonderful backdrop for this Autumnal framed decor.

The Helmar black ZapDots 3D foam squares were great to use to add dimension to layered ares of my pilgrim and pumpkin cuts.

I love the performance of the Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive! This was my first time using this glue and it won’t be my last. Seriously, where has this been all my life? It is a must have for paper crafting. Here I used it to adhere most of my layers together, to attach the ribbon to my embossed cardstock base and to apply the Stampendous Vintage Champagne Glass glitter to the centers of the Petaloo mulberry flowers. After the glue and glitter quickly dries, I applied pearl accents from Queen&Co. to each center to finish off this seasonal project.

Helmar +Petaloo Flowers+ Stampendous Glitter = Happiness!
