Paper Issues is hopping with Tombow USA!

YAY!  it's time for a FAN-FLIPPIN'-TASTIC blog hop with Paper Issues and Tombow USA!

there's a whole list of creative folks blogging this fun event, and you MAY have arrived from Jennie Garcia's blog - great!  if not, CLICK HERE to start at the Paper Issues blog and be sure not to miss a stop!

Paper Issues and Tombow USA are giving away awesome prizes, so you'll want to make sure you comment on EVERY stop along the way in order to be eligible to win!  wanna know what's up for grabs?

Paper Issues is giving away a $20 gift certificate to spend on anything you'd like at the Paper Issues shop!

and the Tombow USA prize pack?  this fantastic adhesive bundle that i had the pleasure of working with!

Tombow Xtreme Adhesive Permanent (this stuff BONDS like nobody's business!), new Tombow Adhesive Dots (love these!), Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue and Tombow Mono Aqua Liquid Glue.  SO VERSATILE, and so many purposes for your crafty projects...

i made this:

i used the Aqua Mono Liquid Glue for everything that was paper, namely the box inserts, the banner, frames and the stands for my bits and pieces (they're all movable, so i can "redecorate").

the Xtreme Permanent Adhesive secured paper to wood WONDERFULLY, especially inside the squares so SOME of the paper boxes are permanent.  and the new Adhesive Dots were for the random bits like the twine, key ring and bird that are partly adhered and can also be moved.

there are TONS of little bits from many different manufacturers and lines in this project.  i grabbed everything with miniatures and scoured until i found a happy combination:  Fancy Pants' Office Suite, Pink Paislee Switchboard and Bella Rouge, Pebbles (Jen Hadfield), October Afternoon Treasure Map, Seven Paper and Webster's Pages, Doodlebug, The Twinery, enamels from Chickaniddy Crafts and We R Memory Keepers and some other blingy randoms from my stash.

i had a TON of fun making this and i am just as excited as you are to hop! 

be sure to "like" Paper Issues and Tombow USA on Facebook, and the clock's already tickin'! 

now off you go to visit Jennifer Priest for more crafty inspiration!
