Hello! Welcome to Day 3 of the Sparkle Co-Hop with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® and Paper House Productions! Be sure to visit each company blog to see the sparkling inspiration created by 2 fabulous design teams every day this week! There are 6 awesome prize packages up for grabs too! All details HERE!
For my project, I decorated 2 metal envelopes with A Reason To Smile 12" Double Sided Foil Scrapbook Paper, Prisms 12" Double Sided Foil Scrapbook Paper, Color Washed Cardstock Multi Pack and Butterflies Faux Enamel Sticker all from Paper House along with some fantastic Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L®! Each envelope is 3 dimensional so they have lots of possibilities. The large is perfect for housing even a very bulky handmade card and the small is great for a gift card of any kind. They are sure to bring a little extra sparkle to anyone's day!
The E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser was used to securely adhere the patterned papers to envelope base. A bit more dimension was added to the stickers using both 3D Foam Squares, White, Regular size and 3D Foam Squares, White, Small size. Using the HomeHobby by 3L® Duel Tip Glue Pen, a few tangerine mini sequins and a Swarvorski crystal to accent one of the butterflies. I love how all the elements radiant such a bright and positive message reminding us to always sparkle!
I had a super fun time trying out the 3D Foam Creative Embellishment Kit on my large envelope. With it, I created a one-of-a-kind gold foiled postage stamp that is fit for royalty! And I discovered my new favorite way to adhere sequins to my craft projects, Adhesive Dots Micro! They are just the right size and so easy to place. The best part, no waiting for them to set and dry...instant gratification every time!

I Am Altered Mini Album

Hello there! Linsey here today sharing my altered tree mini album featuring one of my very favorite Simple Stories collections, I Am. This collection calls to my soul. I'm so inspired by the beautiful message it carries and felt it was a perfect fit for the tree shaped chipboard album. I really like how it came out and I hope you like it too!
Each piece was decorated with the 6x8 paper pad on both sides and no matter which papers I chose, one coordinates with the other every time. From each darling die cut to every sweet sticker, it all matches beautifully together. No stress scrapbooking, thank you!  
I love the colorful patterns and lively sentiments in this collection. The gold accents throughout add a touch of sophistication and elegance. I Am is brimming with beauty and purpose. I really is a celebration of life.
Thanks so much for visiting today! I hope you've been creatively inspired by my project and by the wonderful I Am collection. Until next time, happy crafting!

Embossed Spring-Themed Pizza Boxes

Hi friends! I'm up on the CraftwellUSA Blog today sharing my latest project. Do you enjoy making your own party favors for special occasions? I sure do and these mini pizza boxes were the perfect blank canvas for my party favor decorating desires! Such a fun and easy project--perfect for kids and adults alike!
I wanted to keep the design clean and simple with crisp white cardstock so that the dry embossing would really pop. I had a great first experience with the brand new SNAP Machine Electric Embosser & Die Cutter! It's so easy to operate and comes in a compact and portable design so you can use it anywhere you like, including where space is limited. I used Teresa Collins 2-Pack A6 Folders, Twill Herringbone & Preppy Houndstooth Embossing Folders for the bases, then embellished each box with a variety of Spring stickers, satin ribbon and mulberry flowers. 
For a final touch, I used 2 scrap pieces of previously embossed cardstock to make a tab from Teresa Collins Tabs & Tags Project Dies and added a coordinating sticker to each die cut tab, then placed at the top left corner of each box front. 
And that's all for me! Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you have a creative and very blessed day!

Our projects all feature the April Ribbon Club Assortment and it's a really fabulous one! I love the array of blues and neutrals, which work beautifully for so many projects this time of year...or any time, for that matter!
I used some of these scrumptious ribbons on my "wild about you" treat tote! I had a blast making this and I hope you enjoy it too! 
I made 2 triple-ribbon puffy bows, one for each side of the tote. I chose to make my bows using Diamond Satin Golden Brown, Stars on Capri Blue Grosgrain and Chloe Natural Crochet Lace. All the buttons on the project were tied into double bows using Burlap String Ivory.
And that's all for me! Thanks so much for swinging by today! Your next stop on the hop is SHEILA

Be You Honeycomb Candle Holder

Hi friends! I'm up on the Craftwell blog today sharing my latest project using some of Craftwell's awesome tools! I haven't created a mixed media project is some time and I when I received the Teresa Collins Honeycomb Project Die, I instantly envisioned altering it with inks and sprays and transforming it into a unique and special piece. I hope you enjoy and find a bit of inspiration in my mixed media honeycomb candle holder! 
I used the Teresa Collins Honeycomb Project Die with the Cut'n'Boss machine to cut my material, a piece of cereal box cardboard. After cut, I painted it with a few layers of white gesso, then got busy layering color into the honeycomb. I tried to use natural colors like browns, golds and even yellow. I added a hint of light turquoise for good measure, then brushed over the whole piece with a gold shimmer TC ink. 
The candleholder itself is simply cinnamon sticks glued together around a stripe of cardstock wrapped around a candle. The front is decorated additionally with a Mulberry Paper Chrysanthemum, a couple bees buzzing around and some golden-toned sequins. I finished it off with a cute mini tag using the Teresa Collins Tabs & Tags Project Dies and tied to the front of the candle holder. 
And that's all for me! Thanks so much for stopping by today and letting me share my project with you! Until next time, happy crafting!
