Ribbon Carousel and Helmar Blog Hop




Today the Ribbon Carousel Crewmates are teaming up with the designers from Helmar to bring you a blog hop jam packed with crafty goodness!   We carry many Helmar products in the Ribbon Carousel Shop.  They are our go-to-company for adhesives! 




Helmar USA Inc began in late 2009 initially setup to distribute Helmar branded product manufactured by Helmar Australia and to better service and expand our existing US customer base. It was located in San Diego, California. Whilst the business grew steadily and slowly it wasn't the ideal location for our business to continue to grow.
2012 has seen some major changes already this year for Helmar USA Inc. and those positive changes will continue. In the interests of moving forward and enabling the business to grow from strength to strength, relocation and a change in ownership became inevitable.
In June 2012 Helmar USA Inc. was relocated to Charlotte, North Carolina. Now with a much larger warehouse to allow for future expansion and also located close to major transport links, supply to our customers and business growth will be much more efficient.
Another major postive change we have made is to expand our design team. Headed by Erika Taylor the changes implemented so far have been refreshing and inspiring. The range of product education & projects available through various media is outstanding. We truly have very talented group of designers and are so excited to be working with some of the best companies as preferred partners, in the industry.


I paired some DP from the Doodlebug Design Haunted Manor 6x6 paper pad with some Bazzill Card Shoppe peanut cluster, marshmallow, and licorice twist CS.   I used the MFT Die-Namics oval STAX and then added some black net ribbon, some black solid grosgrain ribbon a button, and some Halloween twine which I adhered using the Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive.  I colored this cute image from the the Sweet November Boo's Fun stamp set with copics, cut it out and popped it up with the Helmar Zap dots.
