It’s Tombow time to get Fancy Pants - Blog Hop WEEK


This week is TOMBOW week with Blog Hops twice a day! And we also have a giveaway for you!

Be sure to check the TOMBOW blog for more inspiration, and we'll have blog posts from our Creative Team everyday at 9am CST & 2pm CST :)

Let's start with Nicole this morning!



I have been in love with TOMBOW products for years now, so I was thrilled to get some new products that I've never tried before.  I'll be showing a few ways I used the TOMBOW products I was sent.  

In this layout of my oldest son I utilized the foam adhesive.  I love the dimension these added to my fairly flat layout and how they made my title and photo literally pop off the page.

I also used the tape runner when putting this layout together.  I love this little baby!  The adhesive glides on smoothly and easily.  I tend to change my mind a lot when working on a layout and my adhesive really needs to aide in my indecisiveness.  ;)  I did change my mind a few times and I was able to pull things up without tearing my paper, but the adhesive still had plenty of stickiness and I didn't need to reapply.

Now I know it's only August, but it's never too early to start putting together Christmas cards is it?  

I don't think I can manage making a card with out foam adhesive!  They always add a little something to a card, and here I used it a couple of ways:  behind some of the snowflake diecuts and also to give the banner behind my ornament a little lift.

Don't be fooled by my little chalk board decoration on my card.  That is a real ornament that comes off easily from my card using TOMBOW's hook and loop tabs.  I thought it would be so fun to give this to someone at the beginning of the season thereby they could use the ornament and change the countdown each day with a little chalk.  

The ornament is super easy to make and I'm going to show you how you can make one yourself.    

First I cut strips of pattern paper at about 1/4" by 6".  

Fold each strip in half and then fold the ends to meet the middle.  Forming a W.  Push the center of the W in towards the bottom to give some shape.

Punch a circle from cardstock and attach adhesive squares to the circle.  I used TOMBOW's power tabs and they worked like a charm.

Now start arranging all the W's around the chipboard and fan them out as you go.

Once you are happy with the arrangement add another punched chipboard circle to the top and decorate as desired.  

To add the string I cut a length of ribbon and attached it under the hook and loop tab and then tucked it all underneath before attaching to my card front.

Here is what the ornament looks like without the card.

I hope I gave you a few ideas in using this wonderful adhesive!

Thanks for stopping by today!
