Hello and welcome
to the DCWV/May
Triple Threat Blog Hop! All
this week, designers from these three great companies are sharing
projects they created by teaming up some fun paper from DCWV’s
Honey Chic stack, with a variety of adhesives from Tombow and some
beautiful ribbon from May Arts.
you have come here fromJennie Garciathen
you're on track! If not, you can go back to any of the company
websites and start the hop from there!
I'm SO excited to show you the layout I created for this hop!
Even though this hop is happening during the summer I was really inspired to create this spring layout because I had this adorable photo of my nieces from an Easter Sunday many years ago.
I loved the lush, bright and textural ribbons and trims from May Arts and I was simply IN LOVE with the string of sequin hearts! I decided that I would cut the hearts apart and then....I started making bows and I COULDN'T STOP! So, I added little bows to all my little hearts - which is a sentence I lived my whole life to say, lol!
I love to add a strip of fringe-cut paper to my banners and it is SUPER important to have a strong adhesive for this technique - because the fringe needs to be manipulated a bit to get it to take on the same curve as the banners. I used the Tombow EXTREME!
And it IS extremely strong! I loved how easy it went on and there really was a LOT on the roll. As always with Tombow, the dispenser is refillable and it feels nice in your hand. Then, I attached the whole, layered banner to the layout with some Power Tabs!

Helloooooo!! So excited to bring you my project for the Miss Kate + Scrappy Mom's Stamps Blog hop!!
DON'T forget to check the BLOG for today's FREEBIE!!!
I just fell in LOVE with this set from Scrappy Mom's Stamps called "Fan-tastic!"
If you are a SUPER nerd like me (or you KNOW a lot of nerds!) this is the perfect set to add to your collections of sentiments!

There are SO many cute files that can be used with this set. Superheros, witches, zombies, chemistry sets...these would all work with this set. BUT, my idea was to use this CUTE "Out of This World" set!
As you know, I strive to keep my projects cute, but to also give them a LITTLE bit of sophistication by using patterns and layout ideas that show the versatility of MKC files.
I'm SOOOO pleased with how this card came out. I had a DCWV Stack from a year or so ago that featured lots of cosmos, stars, and planetary motifs. I was FLOORED when I saw how amazing the moon print looked when I cut used it for the moon SVG. The little alien and the spaceship are cut from some Basic Grey textured solids from various 6x6 pads.
AND, last, but not least, the stamp was FLAWLESS in quality and didn't even have to be conditioned - it stamped PERFECT the first time! I used Heidi Swapp ink (which I love, BTW!)

Well, when my mom told me she needed a card to congratulate her friend I immediately though of this design. I knew I had a MKC file that was a cute little house and I thought it would pair up so cute with my embossing folder of Birds on a Wire.
Hello everyone!! Here today with a super cute project featuring Miss Kate cuttables sister company, Out On A Limb Scrapbooking and our SERIOUSLY generous sponsor - Xyron!
Now, EVERYBODY knows what Xyron does best - they make awesome, innovative, and useful tools to apply all that wonderful STICKY stuff to all your craft projects! You may NOT know that our sister company - Out On a Limb Scrapbooking is a scrapbooking layout kit company! They provide pre-cut, pre-designed layouts for you to put together and add your own twist!
When I received my layout kit I was so excited to put it together! The little characters that Miss Kate creates are so CUTE and the whole kit was so easy to put together using my Xyron X 2.5" sticker maker.
I ran all my leaves and small pieces through the X to apply edge-to-edge adhesive. I even used it to add my journaling strips:
Even though you could put your layout together exactly like it is originally designed OR you can change it up a little bit! I used some Action Wobbles to make the heads of the cute little characters interactive - FUN!!
Here is a picture of my finished layout (click for a larger photo!)
Now, seeing that this is sort of a HOP, you need to make sure you visit the Xyron blog and the Miss Kate Cuttables blog to see all the other designers' projects! ALSO I hear that there is a PRIZE up for grabs...
