Helmar USA & PSA Essentials – Day 5


If you are visiting from CAS-ual Friday's - welcome!   All week long, we've been showcasing ideas to use PSA Essentials stamps and Helmar USA adhesives.   To win $250 in prizes from both companies, all you have to do is become a follower of our blog and leave a comment today.    We will announce the lucky winner Monday on Facebook!

So long before Jill Zarin, The Countess and rest of the cast of RHONY went to Morocco, I was coveting a lantern from that part of the world. A Moroccan lantern would add a real eclectic look to my house, which looks more like a wannabe Pottery Barn room (it's a real "safe" style and needs some spice!) I found this one at an online store called "Just Morocco" a few months ago.


Anthonette Chavez created a card that reminds me of this lantern that I would just love to have. She's stamped from PSA Rosettas, colored them up and embellished a few. I love, love, love the pattern the Rosettas have created. They are dancing on the page just the way the light dances off the walls. She's used Helmar 450 Quick Dry to glue all the gems and paper. And want to know a secret? She didn't sew anything….it is a white gel pen! Did she fool you?



Today is our last day officially spotlighting Helmar projects but you can be sure that we will be using Helmar in our designs often! You always need a great adhesive in crafting and Helmar products are excellent.

Be sure to leave a comment today and become a follower if you aren't already. Your comment is an entry to win a prize package from Helmar & PSA Essentials valued at over $250. We will announce the winner on Monday on Facebook. Good luck and thanks for reading this week!
