3 2 1 Crawl - Helmar Creative Team

I found these cute left over chipboard alphas at the op shop for 50 cents and I wanted to use them as a background on a layout of my granddaugter, while playing with the letters I realised I had the right letters left to spell out crawl so I changed my plans and saved the rest to try again on another layout.
Helmar's Acid Free Glue was perfect for adhere my chipboard letters and squares.  It gave me the wiggle I needed when adhering the chipboard pieces as I often stick things down and then want to wiggle them.

I also used it to adhere the papers and flower die cuts that were not being popped up with Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots.

I adhereed some pink spotty paper and a scrap of bright pink cardstock behind my photo and then added Scrap Dots between these layers and the ones adhered directly to the cardstock.
I also used Scrap Dots on the flower die cut that would be closest to my photo.  I absolutely love Scrap Dots, they are my new favourite Helmar product as they give me the pop up I need without fussing with foam or cardboard.
I love the lift I have gotten on the die cut and you can't see any foam or cardboard underneath it, it looks like it is floating.

I also have a Process Video so you can see how it call came together.

A simple doodle boarder using a old pink pen I have in my stash was a great way to make the layout feel complete.

I love how this layout turned out.
