Pretty Little Studio and Tombow Blog Hop

Hello! My name is Tessa. Welcome to my blog, Precocious Paper! If you have been hopping along with Pretty Little Studio and Tombow USA, and you just visited Latrice Murphy, you are in the right place. If you just happened upon this post and would like to check out the rest of the hop, start here.


I had so much fun creating with the You and Me, Baby Claire and Gold Mine collections from Pretty Little Studio, and I'd love to share with you the Tombow USA products that were my favorite to use. First, let's check out this start to a special album that I am making for my sister:


She is getting married this summer and I thought it would be fun to put together a pocket-style scrapbook for her. She just got her engagement photos back, so I started off with a few pages featuring that photo shoot:




As you can see, my favorite adhesive to use for this project was Tombow's Xtreme adhesive. I enjoy filling pockets, but I also like to add elements to the outside of the pocket pages. I used the Xtreme adhesive to add a die-cut and a label here:


I also created a layout, inspired by the measuring tape patterned paper from the Baby Claire collection. I decided to create an ombre effect on my page by cutting apart the measuring tape strips and stacking them light to dark. I tucked in the photos and sprinkled confetti and sequins down the page.


The glue I used to attach every last one of those teeny-tiny, sparkly bits is the Mono Multi liquid glue.


Just a little dab of this glue was all it took to secure these pretty sequins to the page. I'll be reaching for this adhesive every time I have sequins to adhere from now on!


Are you interested in getting your hands on some Pretty Little Studio and Tombow product? Leave a comment here and on all the other participating blogs. You have through April 14th. The winner will be announced April 15th.
