Almost there Girls.........On the home stretch now!
Welcome to the next in line for the Helmar Hop.
You have just come from Jing-Jing's Blog and this is your last stop before heading back to the HELMAR blog.  Ok  lets get to it.........
 I have a short and simple Video on a quick and easy gift idea for one of those last minute giifts you didnt expect you would need, or one for a neighbour or teacher/bus driver!  ( We are just winding up the school year here in Australia!)  What ever the occaision, little gifts like these are cheap and simple, but look really cute, and are great to give away in the Holiday Season.  I have been saving all my containers all year, and have quite the stash, all different shapes and sizes. I something like this created last year by one very clever Mel, and made many myself last year..... All you need is a little Patterned Paper, a few embellishments and some great Adhesive.....HELMAR is your one shop stop!!!!  There is something perfect for every purpose.......In my Project the Adhesive runner, Zap dots and 450 Quickdry did the trick! we go.....

Hope this gave you some ideas for some quick and easy gifts for Christmas!  It will work for containers of all different shapes and sizes......Just get inventive and you will create something unique and easy!!!
Now remember there are FACEBOOK GIVAWAYS so go 'LIKE' Helmar on FACEBOOK!
AND......Be sure to leave a comment at EVERY stop to be in the running for some prizes!!!!

Ok ladies thanks for stopping by! xx

Time to head back to the HELMAR BLOG to finish up for the day!

TCR #35 and a BLOG HOP


Yesterday we released #35 at THE COLOR ROOM.  Check it out!

Now yes......My first though was.......OH....MY.......GOODNESS!  (Who makes these Palettes?????LOL!!!!)  But I worked through my fear and created this........

And it wasnt torture and didnt take me forever.......It was OK!!!!  If you are like me, and a little worried about these colours.  Give it a try anyway......It just might come together easy for you too!
Can't wait to see yours!

Oh and remember the Helmar Holiday Hop This Sunday.  Lots of Fun to be had.....Lots of prizes and LOADS of ideas for Holiday gifts!!!!  You wont want to miss it!!!!
Hope to see you there....there is quite the line up!!!!

#34 at The Color Room looked a bit like this!!!!!

I missed out on this one.  Unfortunately My Scrapping area has been out of action (ie. covering the loungeroom floor and piled high on the dining table and scrapping desk)  TOTALLY UNUSABLE!  Which meant scrapping for this palette was absolutely out of the question.  I would like to get back to it though.  What a fun, bright Palette!
Luckily the girls had it totally covered and created magic once again!  Check it out on the PHOTOWALL
Just type in "#34" to the search bar and you will see every ones projects for this palette!

Hi There!
Catching up once AGAIN!!!
I have had visitors for the last two weeks and it always throws me out of whack!!!!
The Color Room #32

So gorgeous!  I totally need to go back in and do this one.  Beautiful palette!  If you want to do the same and need some inspiration head over to TCR and have a look on the Photo Wall add in #33 to the search bar and all the #33 Projects will come up together!  You can post your work anytime, so dont worry about not having done it in time!
There are a few I need to head back to as well!!!
