Here is my Home for the Holidays Mini Album created for the Blog Hop. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed creating it. These papers were a fun choice for Christmas. I am usually drawn to the Red/Green/White combo that gets a little boring. This was a great deviation from what I would instinctively choose and create; and really allowed me room to play with the paper without any expectations. I LOVE the finished product. Let me know what you think (comment and follow for a chance to win prizes).
In this project I used Glitter Christmas Trees cardstock, Glitter Christmas Words cardstock, Red Swirl Glitter cardstock, Glitter Black and White Holly, Glitter Silver on Black cardstock, Christmas Dew Drops , Helmar Quickfix Adhesive Runner, Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive, This was the first time I used the Helmar Quickfix Adhesive and I have to say that I really like it. Most tape runner style adhesives I've tried do not have the staying power you find with a wet adhesive, but I'm happy to report that this one actually does. I am also impressed with the 450 Quick Dry Adhesive and will definitely have to get some more of that.
Here are some pictures of my project:
