Blog Hop with Tombow, DCWV, & May Arts June 23, 2014


Welcome to the Triple Threat Blog Hop with DCWV, May Arts and Tombow! All this week designers from these great companies will be sharing projects using DCWV’s Honey Chic stack, beautiful ribbon from May Arts and adhesives from Tombow.

If you have come here from Valerie’s Blog, then you are on the right track! If not, you can go back to any of the company websites and start the hop from there!


I have designed three pages for the hop including some hints on adding ribbon and trims. On this page, diagonal striped cardstock was used as a base with coordinating papers from the stack. The cardstock panels and photo were first arranged using the Removable Adhesive to plan the page design. For the permanent bond, Permanent Adhesive was used.


I attached teal satin ribbon using Xtreme Adhesive for a quick and secure bond. Multi Liquid Glue was used to glue small motifs from the paper under clear cabochons to create the floral embellishments. Multi dries quickly and crystal clear, perfect for this task.


To manage the Light Blue Raffia Bow trim, I adhered it, right side down, to a scrap piece of paper using the Removable Adhesive. Then with the Multi Liquid Glue, I added a tiny drop of glue to each bow and let dry clear. It was then super easy to attach it exactly where I wanted it without any excess adhesive showing – a perfect solution for hard to attach ribbon and trims!


It was fun to choose different papers from DCWV’s Honey Chic Stack, I was always able to match my  photos!


The blue flat marble embellishments were done using the Multi Liquid Glue and the paper panels again arranged using the Removable Adhesive. With the Yellow sheer ribbon with butterflies, a strip of Xtreme Adhesive was added to the page and then the ribbon was ‘messy pleated’ in place. I also added the Green with polka dot ribbon and the yellow tulle gathered under the journaling panel with the Xtreme Adhesive. The final placement of the panels were adhered down using both Dots Adhesive and Foam Tabs.


This final page used the same techniques. Xtreme for the flat ribbon, Multi to create the acrylic gem embellishments and the Multi glue technique for the diamond chain. I loved the cute canvas with bunnies ribbon and the sparkly diamond chain from May Arts Another notable hint is to use Aqua Liquid Glue on ribbon ends to prevent them from fraying! IMG_0677
