Product Shuffle : 3D foam squares

Good morning!

Jocelyne, here, and welcome to another installment of Product Shuffle, where I try to show you a different way to use some of our scrapbooking supplies.  This week we are going to take something that is always hidden and bring it to the front of our page.  That's right!  We are going to showcase some 3D foam squares!

How are we going to make the foam square pretty and not so sticky?  Easy!  Simply by taking one side of the already sticky side and dipping it in glitter!  Since the 3D foam square is like a double sided sticker, I simply left one side of the protective backing on one side, took the other side out and dipped it in my glitter.  I used my finger to brush the excess glitter while making sure it was not sticky anymore.  I then added small My Mind's Eye alpha stickers on top for my title.  Do you see it? 

I wanted lots of sparkle to the rest of the layout, so I used the very pretty American crafts gold letters thickers, a strip of Fancy Pants metallic paper that I passed through a scallop border punch, and some My Mind's Eye enamel shapes.

Those glittery hearts are so pretty!

The butterflies, frames and chevron cutouts are from Pink Paislee's cottage farm collection.  They went perfectly with the My Mind's Eye Now and Then and Ashbury Heights and Echo Park's Capture Life paper I used.  I also used some Bo Bunny, Prima and Kaisercrafts flowers, Basic Grey enamel dots, CMTH cardstock and Webster's Pages ribbon.

Here is my finished layout!

So there you have it!  I hope my new twist on 3D foam squares inspires you.  Don't forget to tune in right here next Saturday for even more inspiration when we unveil another sketch.  I can't wait to see what our talented designers have created!

Have an amazing day!
