Pretty Little Studio & Tombow Blog Hop!

Hi and Welcome to the Tombow USA and Pretty Little Studio Blog Hop! Get ready for two days of beautiful vintage inspiration! You probably came here from  Jenny Garcia's blog!   but if you happened to stumble across my blog go to the Tombow USA Blog  to start! 
Using Tombow with Pretty Little Studio Products is a match made in heaven.  Could crafting get any easier?     Beautiful vintage images, papers and embellishments ready to be assembled into lovely projects!

I was really excited to work with some of the Tombow products I haven't used before. I've always been pleased with the quality and performance I've experienced with their other products so I knew these would be just as amazing.   
I thought I'd really put them to the test for the hop - using the adhesives in different ways.  I used the  Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue to adhere the paper flowers and sequins.
Normally I use a hot glue gun for heavier items, but Tombow kept everything exactly where it needed to be!
I think sometimes the trickiest thing ever to adhere is vellum.  So of course I wanted to try that with the Tombow product.  I used the Mono Aqua Liquid Glue.  This is the clear gel glue.  It worked beautifully and I can't see any trace of it through the vellum. 
The Tombow Xtreme Adhesive was a new product for me.  I used it to adhere the wood veneer butterfly and ribbon from the previous project.   I was really impressed with the strength of the adhesive and am confident that these embellishments are going to stay put! 
I used Tombow Adhesive Foam Squares (another new product for me)  to attach the die cut images.  I've used other brand foam squares in the past.  The Tombow give the same dimension and lift that I love in a foam adhesive, but their hold is strong and permanent. 
If you've experienced elements falling off your projects (I know I have), I can confidently say that is not going to happen if you use Tombow!

 OK Now the part you've been waiting for!  Let me just tell you about the prizes!!!!
