Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L and Simpe Stories Blog Hop

Hi There!

 Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L & Simple Stories have joined for a blog hop! Leave a comment on my post at Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L for your chance to win!

Today I have a page using the gorgeous Xmas collection December Documented. I love how this collection is bright & fun but still has a bit of a vintage about it too. My page had lot’s of dimension & layers which I have created using the fabulous Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L foam products.

To add dimension to the fussy cut title “Be Merry” I have cut strips of Crafty Foam Tape Black . Using the longer strips allows the title to sit flat & also gives flexibility to trim large & small pieces to fit.

The 3D foam squares Black Regular Size were the perfect size to add dimension behind the bunting.
I have also used some Designer Shapes 3D Foam Christmas Shapes to follow through with the holly image. I have coated the holly leaves & berries in glitter
