It's a Blog Hop with Glue Dots & Marion Smith Designs

After an incredibly long and cold winter, I'm happy to see green grass and the flowers in full bloom. To celebrate the season, Glue Dots and Marion Smith Designs have teamed up for a blog hop, as well as introduce the new Glue Dots blog!

Upon receiving Junque & Jems and the Never Grow Up paper collection from Marion Smith Designs, I was inspired to create an upcycled diorama with my stash of Glue Dots.

Let's have a look:

Upcycled Diorama


Glue Dots® (assorted)
Glue Dots Desktop Dispenser
Marion Smith Designs paper
Marion Smith Design embellishments
cardstock (green, blue)
aluminum roasting pan
butterfly punch
EK Success fence
small flower pot
floral foam
miniature beehive
fishing line

The new Glue Dots Desktop Dispenser made it easy to attach punched butterflies to the paper tree I created:

and the floral embellishments to wire for the flower pot:

After attaching the background and paper tree to the roasting pan, I added clouds with Pop Up Glue Dots®, doubling up for more dimension:

and hung a couple with fishing wire:

Then I pulled out the XXL Glue Dots® to secure the rolled moss to the bottom of the diorama:

I also used an XXL Glue Dot® to keep the flower pot in place before using Glue Dots Glue Lines® to attach a popsicle stick to the back of the cut-out girl:

This allows her to stay standing and move around within the scene.

What a doll! I wish you can stay and play for a bit, but it's time to continue the blog hop and have a chance to win some goodies!
