Layout Construction Tips Using Helmar Adhesives

Helmar Adhesives has a fun contest going this month, to create a video showing some tips or a tutorial using their products, so I used the opportunity to show a simple tutorial on layout construction, because the right glue for the job really makes a difference.

I've been in love with the Seaside collection from Webster's ever since I saw the peeks before winter CHA and have been wanting to think of a unique way to use the gorgeous burnt orange vellum sheet. I cut some circles with my Slice and trimmed out some of the patterned part to mix it all up a bit, as you can see here.

I used the V2 Vellum Adhesive for the vellum and it worked perfectly! Pop Dots for the journaling card add a bit of dimension. And the easy to use Glue Runner made this a mess free project.

The Gemstone glue made applying a flat back button effortless and the Premium Craft Glue left no show through with the Fabric Fancy or Fabric Ribbon trim.

And I shot it in my newly cleaned studio (at least the cleaned corner), so you can see a bit of where I work this time. Thanks for watching!
