A Hop with Marion Smith Designs and Glue Dots

I could not be more excited!! I love discovering designers I'd never seen before and getting to use their ah-maz-ing products!! Glue Dots® teamed up with Marion Smith Designs to bring you this Spring blog hop. Her designs are retro-vintage-chic, and I AM IN LOVE!! Visit Scrapbook.com or BlueMoonScrapbooking.com to buy her products.
My mind went racing when I got this box of goodies to play with, and I couldn't decide on just one project to share with you! I knew I wanted these pretties displayed around my house, so I made two different wall hangings for today's projects.

First, I went to the store and picked up three pretty inexpensive frames (Michaels, $2 each). All I had to do for this is cut my favorite pieces of the Marion Smith Designs paper to size and 'frame' them. I used my Craft Glue Dots® to adhere her amazing little trinkets from the Junque and Gems line onto the papers, and hang!!

Next, things got a bit messy with a canvas!

I decoupaged pieces of the Marion Smith Designs paper onto my canvas, added paints, stencils, and rub-on's to get it to the look I wanted. I added my Marion Smith Designs resin flower (swoon!!) to the canvas with a Craft Glue Dot®.

I loved a sheet of the Never Grow Up line that had dolls to cut out. I couldn't resist fancy cutting this gal and her party dress!!

Love the depth of the resin flower!

 I couldn't think of a better phrase to add to the canvas but the name of the paper line!! Never Grow Up!!

You can find Glue Dots® products, including the new Desktop Dispenser, online at Jo-Ann.com or at your local Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores.
