Thanks for spending a little bit of your weekend with Helmar. Enjoy!


I can't believe it's been 2 years since this photo was taken. We've gone from 2 boys to 3, and Rowan is the size that Parker was in that picture! I had fun with bits and pieces on this one,adding loads of textures- I found a new one while gluing the Epiphany Bubble Caps Hearts onto a cork sheet with Helmar Gemstone Glue. The cork texture shines through the glossy heart and looks great for a masculine page!

You did a beautiful job on your layout page. I love all of the embellishments. Great way to use bits and I think I need washi tape :D and the Helmar will hold those cute Shape Studio Bubble Caps well.
