Using Adhesive Squares as an Interesting Design Element!

Good morning! I am up on the Scrapbook Adhesives Blog today with a Valentine Card! I love trying to use products in different ways than intended.  Like these small 3D adhesive squares.  Normally they are hidden and out of sight.....but I decided to make them an interesting backdrop to my smaller pink glittered hearts! The lacy heart was cut using a Spellbinder's die and then I peeled the 3D foam squares and placed them along the perimeter.  I kept going until the entire heart was filled in.  I carefully peeled the tops of them and sprinkled with a pale pink glitter.  Although for some reason the glitter looks white in this photo.  
I used two 3D foam hearts for the center and sprinkled those with glitter as well, hot pink and red.  I backed the hearts with a pretty lacy square and placed it over two strips of gemstone strips I found at Hobby Lobby.   (The Paper Studio makes them)  
I added a few pearls to the corners, a posy and felt leaves to the smallest heart and a sticker sentiment from SRM. What do you think about those little squares?  Don't they remind you of mini marshmallows?   Marshmallows and Valentine's Day? Sure! Why not! LOL! 

So glad you stopped by!  Have a great Tuesday!

Wooden Coaster Gift Tag!

Good morning friends!  
Did the weekend fly by or was it just me?  I feel like I blinked and it was gone!
Anyway....I am up on the SRM blog today with a fun Valentine tag. 
I bought a bunch of Birch Wooden Discs from Etsy.  I think they are so cute and can't wait to find different uses for them!
I used a stencil, texture paste and yellow glitter for the background.  I glued pom pom trim to the perimeter.  I layered an SRM sticker on top of a piece of orange felt.  I glued a few sequins here and there for a finishing touch.  
I glued a string to the back so that I could hang it off of a gift.  Since this ornament, I had my husband drill a hole at the top of each one to make it easier to hang. 

Hope my (and your) Monday goes as quickly as the weekend! ;)
