Gold and Cork Blog Hop with DCWV and Tombow USA!

 Hello and Welcome to the Gold and Cork Blog Hop with Tombow USA and DCWV! We have 2 days full with gorgeous projects using GOLD and CORK! You probably came here from Jessica Pascarella but if you happened to stumble across my blog go to the  DCWV Blog to start!


I hope you are having an awesome time hopping with Tombow and DCWV today!
I decided to take my DCWV Insta-Photo Fun album and make a fun gift item that keeps on giving!

I decorated the front of my album with a title that does double I will explain later!  I used Tombow Mono Multi glue to reinforce all my letter stickers on the cork background!

I created a little pocket for the front of my album with my We R Memory Keepers envelope maker to hold small 4x4 envelopes that I also made with the envelope maker.  The whole thing was attached to the inside of my album with Tombow Xtreme Adhesive - which is AMAZINGLY strong!

 Then, I created a set of 4x4 cards using the DCWV Gilded Paper Stack, some sequins, feathers, gold washi tape, ribbon, and gold Stickles.  I added a little dimension with Tombow Foam Tape and the sequins were adhered using Tombow Mono Multi glue (the BEST liquid glue for sequins!)

This is my FAVORITE sentiment of the moment!  It's by Unity Stamp Co.

There are lots of cut-apart borders and sheets of journaling cards in the DCWV Gilded Paper Stack.  I cut this "love you" circle from one of the journaling cards and filled in the heart with gold Stickles.

Once I was done creating my cards, I added the cards to my 4x4 page protectors that come with the DCWV Insta Fun Photo album.

And - PRESTO!  You have a lovely stationary gift that doubles as a mini photo album gift!  When the recipient of the album gets finished sending or giving the cards out they will still have a fun insta-sized album to fill with pictures.  You could also incude a few more page protectors with things like stamps and Tombow Adhesive dots (in four fun colors!) to expand the amount of mailing supplies you are giving and it leaves more spaces for photos when it comes time to turn this into a real photo album.

Here is the main adhesive I used! (I'm in LOVE with this foam tape and the little colored adhesive dots!)

What's a hop without PRIZES!?

To win, visit and comment on the participating blog posts. You have until March 31st at 11:59 EST to comment. A winner will be picked randomly and announced on April 1st 2015.

Tombow will be giving away: Tombow Xtreme Adhesive, NEW Tombow Adhesive Dots, NEW Tombow Foam Tape and everyone’s favorite the Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue!
