We’re all pretty excited to celebrate National Coffee Day! I can’t think of a better way to celebrate this day, than inviting a friend to coffee! Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® really helped me tie this card together. 3D Foam Squares White Small Sizeallows me to create dimension and add layers to my card as well!

I created this card with a perfect pick me up in mind. It’s bright, it’s cheery and who doesn’t love a coffee treat?!?! Here’s a close up of the sweet details on this card. Adhesive Dots Mini was the best way to add those sequins you see here in the close up below.

Good morning! Today, I'll be sharing a layout about 3D Foam Heartsand the girl who owns my heart, Mackenzie. I love capturing my daughter in pictures, granted, it's a hard thing to do these days. Additionally, I love the dimension 3D Foam Hearts lend to this layout.

 The first thing I did, was gather up some bits and pieces to use on my layout. I wanted the 3D Foam hearts to be a feature in the layout, especially since they are so fun and stand out. (Of course, I had to use glitter!) Mackenzie is so beautiful, rarely she lets me capture it, as a result, this picture is the focus of the layout. I am, of course going to my layout, it's kind of my trademark. I always reach for the E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser to get the job done.

You'll see that I used additional foam for this, to create interest. I used 3D Foam Circles Black Mix to do this. I used the 3D Foam circles on Mackenzie's picture, there's a shadow lending dimension to the layout.

What would you do with your hearts? The possibilities are endless. The versatility of the foam shapes by Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L  finish off the projects perfectly. Look and see what I did below, I used gold glitter on mine! A good old fashioned plate does the trick for catching glitter. For some extra interest, I sprinkled some sequins here and there.

Adding the Hearts

When I began adding the hearts, I knew I wanted them to look "perfectly imperfect." You will be able to see in my placement of each heart, as you can see, each heart has a place. Again, if you look at the layout above, you will see how I accomplished this.

Final Touches

I added some words and spray mist to my layout. I am quirky in the sense that a layout doesn't feel finished unless I add mist to it. Here's a close up of some of the details and dimension that I keep mentioning.

Thank you for letting me share with you! Hope you have a great weekend!!


#ForeverTogether with The Cut Shoppe ❤

Good morning! Shannon here, sharing a layout about the beautiful girls pictured below. They are amazing, hilarious and can often be found together.  I used a few files from The Cut Shoppe for this layout: The Rough Waters, The Friends Forever & Boho Chic files.

Did you know that you can use part of a file? I did that with the Boho Chic file. Here's a close up of as always, so you can see these awesome files:
