Helmar USA & PSA Essentials Giveaway! Day 1


Any crafter knows the importance of a good adhesive. Glue, 3-D foam, square dots, round dots, tape – all essential in your arsenal. Without it, you are lost! This week PSA Essentials has partnered with a great adhesive company Helmar! Helmar USA, Inc. distributes Helmar products manufactured in Australia.  They have variety of adhesives and art mediums. Some of their products are Acid Free Glue, Liquid Scrap Dots, Acrylic Sealer, Quickfix Adhesive Runner & Refill, Zapdots, and Gemstone Glue! I am guessing you've used some of their adhesives before.

All week long, I will share great ideas and projects featuring PSA Essentials and Helmar. You will see it's a great match. Comment each day and at the end, we will choose 1 lucky winner to receive a prize package from Helmar and PSA Essentials, valued at over $250! Just leave a comment and become a follower of our blog, if you aren't already!

Tami Mayberry shared this great note card with us. She started with a blank PSA Essentials note card (find more like them here: http://psaessentials.com/notedesigns.htm). Separately, she stamped the cupcake on paper, colored up and shaded, and then adhered with her Helmar products! She used Helmar Adhesive Runner, Craft Glue Gems AND Zap Dots to ensure a secure fit. I love the way she's color coordinated this card here – the red in the cherry matches the paper and the colored in fleur de lis design.



Check out Helmar's blog today (www.helmarusa.typepad.com) and see what their designers are up to using PSA Essentials and Helmar. Also visit their Facebook page to say hello (http://www.facebook.com/HelmarUSA)

Remember, to win the prize package, be a follower of this blog and leave us a comment to enter to win!
