PaperWorks Co Stamp Free Friday!

Hi everyone!

I am having fun with PaperWorks Co stamp free friday thang! It’s getting me to work on projects that I’ve put off with good intentions. LOL I bought these wooden letters from Michael’s before my son was even born! He’s 13 months now. hehee So I finally got around to altering them for his room. I used the super adorable Little Boy Collection by Echo Park! LOVE this paper collection! With 2 older sisters, I have a LOT of pink, so when my son came along I became slightly obsessed with more masculine and fun boy collections. I tell ya, if it has dinosaurs, trains, spaceships, etc on it, I must HAVE it! So, here are the letters hanging on his wall:

And here are are a couple close ups. I used Helmar Adhesives to put this entire project together! I love Helmar! I used the Acid Free glue for adhering the paper to the letters, then used Quick Dry 450 and Scrap Dots for the embellies! I love this glue – it’s the best I’ve ever used!! This is also one of the projects I submitted in trying out for their DT - Fingers Crossed!!! I absolutely LOVE how it turned out and now when I put my son to bed, I point to each of the letters then say his name as I kiss his cheek. He loves it. :D
You can see I adhered tiny clothes pins to 2 of the letters to add pictures. I knew I wanted to be able to change out pictures as he grows!

Challenges I'm Entering:
Card Ideas - Kidding Around
Paper Sundaes - Childhood Memories

Paper: Little Boy Collection by Echo Park
Adhesive: Helmar Acid Free Glue, Quick Dry 450 & Liquid Scrap Dots

This is awesome Carisa. I LOVE that button paper. I am keeping my fingers crossed for you that you make the DT. They would be silly not to pick you.
