Thursday Mini Album - Layout

ACK! Tomorrow is our last day with ...

But we have some really cool stuff to 
show you today!! 

If you didn't stop by the blog 
this week, yet .... here's a little recap 
of one of our favorite companies, Tombow~

You might know them from some of these
amazing products.... 

Glue!! I love this liquid glue... 
I literally use it for EVERYTHING! 

Of course, their water-based markers
were some of my first and I still love using 
them to color straight on my stamps... more 
on these fun markers coming this week! 

And of course, their runners are super 
quality too! (even compared to my beloved
ATG... these Tombow runners are so versatile and easy 
to take on the go... my ATG is a little bulky lol) 

They carry lots of other fun stuff... 
Today Ellen and Joleen are showing off 
two different ways to use the markers... 

Let's start with Joleen, she's just so 
darn talented!! 

She used one of our new sets 'Happy Bugs' 

Love this new set... check out 
the mini album cover that Joleen 

Head on over to Joleen's blog to see *how* she colored
in those cute little bugs! She did a great job!


Next up is a layout by Ellen... her scrapbooking 
is genius!! Sweet genius!! 

Check out her layout using the stamp set
'Buddie Bee' 

You can see up close that she 
used the markers to color the stamp 
before stamping it so she could make the 
collar a different color!


I really love how she sewed around the edges!

Take a moment to head over to Ellen's 
blog and say hello... AND see this layout 
with all the details she put into it!!


Of course what would be a 
partnership with a COOL company 
without a little give-a-way... 

Post comments on this blog and 
 the blog of the designer (today it's Joleen and Ellen!) 
each day of our partnership (through friday) and 
be entered to win some really NEW sweet!!

Also... don't forget... we have 
a monthly challenge we'd love for you 
to participate in! 

Here are the details...
