Wall Decor With Sticky U

Happy Sunday, fellow crafters!
It was quite a thrill to be asked to join the alum at
to create a project of my choice!

Let me preface by saying that I wasn't a stranger to the Xtreme adhesive
before beginning this project... I all ready knew that this was the ultimate in
permanent adhesives!  But, being that the adhesive is so tenacious I was happy
to learn a little tidbit that may go unnoticed on the back of the product packaging:
Roll to apply and then swipe the tip to the side for a clean break.
You can see a video --here--

I purchased this set of pre-cut wooden letters at Michael's for my daughter's room.

I chose three different patterns of black & white patterned papers by Doodlebug Design.

After tracing the letters onto the patterned paper and cutting out, 
I applied the Xtreme Permanent Adhesive around the edge of each wood piece.
The letters will be hanging on her wall for the foreseeable future, so I wanted
to use an adhesive that I knew wouldn't give-way after a month or two!

I added some sequins and rhinestones to each letter and also added baker's twine 
around the edge of the letters; this helps to give a clean, finished look!
To do so, I used Tombow's Glue Pen...just use the glue pen as you would a 
writing pen and draw a line of glue around the edge of the letter.  
Press the baker's twine into the glue and hold for a few seconds to secure in place.

I attached a length of ribbon tot he back of each letter for hanging.

Lastly, let me share a photo of me in my SU t-shirt and holding my diploma!

**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
