We had a great week of Helmar and Core’dinations Teaming up for some fabulous inspiration!!!! Make sure you head over to their blog, too. The Helmar blog is jam packed with inspiration this week!!! We are by no means done featuring projects using these great adhesives so make sure you stop by for more in the future. AND today is the LAST day to comment to win some of our fabulous cardstock. You can comment every day for more chances to win.
Today is our grande finale…it’s kinda like a fireworks show. So keep scrolling for some awesome designs using Core’dinations and Helmar Adhesives! Can you tell our Design team likes the Zap Dots from Helmar? If you haven’t used them YOU MUST! They should be a staple in every crafter’s collection.
We will start off from a gorgeous layout from Design Team member Cari Locken featuring an awesome mix of our different collections. She included the Core Amour Onyx Collection, Cosmo Cricket Core Impressions, Vintage and Core Jenni Bowlin Impressions.
Here is a close-up of how Cari cut the Jenni Bowlin letters from the alpha cardstock and raised them with the Helmar Zap dots:
A super cool layout from Design Team Member Hera Frei (even thought it’s about getting stuck in a Hurricane!). Hera adhered the clouds in various layers with Helmar Zap dots and used her Helmar Tape Runner. Also Hera used the Core Impressions for the clouds. SO easy…just punch them out and they are embossed and ready to go!
And a card from Design Team member Ellen Sosnoski using some, yep! You guessed it…Helmar Zap dots on the sentiment and 450 Quick Dry Adhesive for the tag and ribbon (also a mix of Vintage Cardstock and Jenni Bowlin Core Impressions):
We will choose a random winner from all the comments this weekend. Thanks so much!

LaRayne S says:
I took a class that had some debossing projects and it was very easy and looked great. A Cuddlebug would be the ideal thing to pratice this fun technique.
