I created piggy cards instead of the album from the National Scrapbook Day bundle. You could create these cards instead of the album or just add cardstock and do both. I didn’t really care for these at first but after these cards, the piggies are really cute and fun to color. I did use more ribbon but that’s because I wrapped it around the cards. I think if you only use it on the front of the cards then you should have enough. Other than the ribbon, the only thing I added was bitty sparkles.

Supplies used are all Close to My Heart: These Little Piggies Album Workshop Kit, and Bitty Sparkles.

Here’s closeups of all the individual cards:

If you’d like to create these cards, here are my alternated cutting guides:

Welcome to our Technique Blog Hop!  This month we are highlighting dimension. This blog hop is a great big circle so you can start wherever you want and continue through to see all the fabulous artwork incorporating this technique.  If you are coming from Haley Dyer’s Blog, you are on the right track!

This is a layout from the Craft with Heart Scrapbooking Subscription Kit. It is my favorite of this 4 months! I like to add elements to these layouts to elevate them and create my own unique pages, changing them up to work best with my photos. 3D Foam Tape is a simple way to add dimension. In this layout, I used both the thin and regular for different layers and doubling your foam tape is another option. Note my use of Stickles, sequins, and gems for additional ways to add dimension to any project!

All products used are CTMH: Craft with Heart Scrapbooking Kit, Springtime Flower Sequins, Silver Glitter Gems, Bitty Sparkles, Silver Stickles Glitter Glue, Thin 3D Foam Tape, and 3D Foam Tape.

Thanks for stopping by!  Please continue onto Katy Taylor’s Blog where you will find some additional artwork highlighting this technique!  Be sure to leave a comment and let me know what you thought of my variation and happy hopping!

When this stamp set came out, I knew these pictures were the perfect reason to use it! The penguins are so cute and that the one in the glasses really has personality. The Simple Serif Alphabet is another favorite of mine. There are so many options with uppercase and lowercase, and both available as thin cuts. You can stamp, just use the thin cuts, or use both together!
