Robin's Nest & Helmar Blog Hop!

Hi, I'm Carisa and I'm a Helmar designer! We are THRILLED to be partnering with Robin's Nest for this fun Blog Hop. The start of this hop begins at the Robin's Nest Blog so if you are just seeing my blog, please be sure to head over there to start - you're not going to miss a blog as we EACH have a special prize to give away. Leave a comment on my blog for a chance to win a $10 gift certificate to shop at Helmar

Now, if you've arrived from Marilla's Blog you are in the right spot. 

For my project, I wanted to create one of a kind embellishments for my page so I used the Large Clear Drops by Robin's Nest plus Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive to adhere my pattern paper to coordinate with my page. 


And this is how I made them:




Then just cut them out with scissors. Easy peasy! And my page which I also used Helmar Premium Craft Glue and more Robin's Nest goodies. The rhinestones around my oval journal card is Robin's Nest from an awesome netted rhinestone ribbon that I cut apart. 


I created this page for my 30 days of Gratitude journal. This idea begins every November on Facebook and I decided to take out one of my Amy Tangerine Day Books to get a little creative & crafty with it this year. I'm looking forward to completing each page every day! 

I hope you enjoy the rest of the hop! Don't forget to leave a comment for your chance to win! A full list of every designer participating is below:

Making my own dot embellishments is the highlight of this blog hop for me. Yours are great. I've used clear dots to emphasize designs, of course, but never thought to cut them out to stand alone. Great tip!
