It's true that great minds think alike.
Today we continue our love affair with Helmar USA with alike ideas by different designers. Kelley Eubanks and Mara Campbell both chose their Gigi Monogram Peel & Stick packs and Helmar glue dots to create personal stationery. You will find that they are both very clean and very simple, but there are unique, eye catching design elements in each.
These bright colors in Kelley's personal stationery really stand out. The black and white patterned paper behind the letter really make the Monogram pop! Your eye is immediately drawn to the center. It's bold and beautiful. She's taken the time to round out the corners, giving it a more polished and professional look.
Mara's designs are a bit more feminine. She's used scallop punches to layer and nestle her Monogram. She's tied a beautiful ribbon, perfectly – just off the center of the Monogram letter. The scalloping of the punch matches the outer ring of the Monogram stamp. I love how well it coordinates! Here's she's used Helmar glue dots to fasten everything together. See… where would we be here without a good adhesive? You certainly would not achieve this layering!
I also really appreciate the punching at the bottom of the white paper – the detail really adds another dimension and gives it the perfect girlie touch. She's also stamped the back of her envelopes with her "C" for her last name.
