Glue Dots meeting up with Pink & Main!


Welcome to the Blop Hop!
(You should have come by way of Zsofia's blog!)
Designers from Glue Dots ® an d Pink & Main are excited to bring you inspiring ideas
to spark your own creativity and imagination!
Bring sunshine into someone's life with a bit of joy in a envelope!


Mini Glue Dots ® are a great way to add sequins to card fronts and scrapbooking pages!


This card was stamped using My Sunshine from Pink & Main. 
This cute little set has a variety of bright greetings.  It also has a matching die for the main word.
I created the mini envelope by hand. Make a template of your own for repeated use!





Glue Tape from Glue Dots ® is a great adhesive for card makers and scrappers.
I created an envelope card using We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board and decorative papers.
The inside panel was decorated with coordinating paper and washi tape.



Removable Glue Dots ® are a great way of securing the flap...without making it permanent.




Cut a belly band and wrap it around the envelope.  Ultra Thin Glue Dots ® were used to decorate the band and front of the envelope. For this project, I used Norse Day stamp set by Pink & Main. This is such a novel theme for a set. I love the details...and used colored ink instead of black ink filled in with watercolors.  This is a great way to incorporated the colors of the decorative papers.



The front



The inside
Again...use Glue Tape to secure the inside card to the envelope.
This is a card that will bring a smile to the recipient's face!

Create some cards held together with the many products from Glue Dots®...
Send them out and watch the smiles start growing!!

October Skies


I clipped a photo from a picture calendar to create this landscape card.
The sentiment comes from The Project Bin's latest set. "Eat Pie" is perfect for fall and Thanksgiving, which is my favorite holiday!

Gate Fold Christmas Doors


Here is a fun way to use Eyelet Outlet's new wreath brad.

Create a gate fold card from a piece of cardstock that measures 5.5 x 8.25.

Score along the long edge 2 1/8" and 6 3/8".

Fold each side to meet in center.






Next...decorate as desired.

I cut out panels and embossed them with a wood grain.

Next I sponged the edges to give definition.

I hand made the banner...and again, sponged the edges.





The door handles are made from 8mm pewter brads.

Simply open the prongs flat and use a Glue Dot ® to adhere them to the card front where

door handles would be. 



Come to our next tradeshow to check out the new holiday brads...

as well as washi, bling, and paper flowers!

Haunted Mash Up!

Here, I created a Haunted Mash Up using The Project Bin's two new fall sets!



By adding die cuts and googlie eyes,
this pumpkin becomes a jack o lantern! 
I mismatched the eyes to mimic the Ghostie.
I love how this turned out and I am ALMOST ready to decorate for the fall...but not quite yet! 

Thanks for popping by for this mash up.

Cool Ghoul.


For the F4A445 challenge at Splitcoatstampers...
use your own handwriting.
The Ghosts are from The Project Bin's new set: Cool Ghoul!

The inside reads:  You can't feel it, but it's there!

I found the sentiment online...such a fun one for loved ones who live very far away!
