Summer Isn't a Bummer Blog Hop !!!!

Welcome to the Imaginisce/Tombow Summer isn’t a Bummer” Blog hop.
 
 
This week, Imaginisce and Tombow have teamed up to get you in the summer spirit. Both design teams are excited to show you just what we have done with the Hot Rocks as well as My Endless Summer and Outdoor Adventure collections from Imaginisce, and Tombow’s Dual Brush Pen Markers and amazing adhesive products.

Tombow has asked ME to guest design with both teams!!! YAY !!!
 
  If you have come here from Marie then you're on track! If not you can start HERE
 
Summertime I think of S'MORES !!!! I love sitting around the fire pit after a hard day of swimming and chow down on these scrumptious treats !!!
 
So I decided to make my first ever S'more bouquet Kit ! Never seen one before??? Yep me neither ! LOL
 
 
 
I wrapped the full size Hershey Bars in Imaginisce paper from the Outdoor Adventure collection. Then added some cute denim twine from the Twinery.
 
 
For the marshmallows' I found these JUMBO stars in red, white, and blue at the store. Used a skewer stick and sealed them in a long bag.
 
 
 
This adorable rustic pail was found at Michael's and I decorated it using a Imaginisce cut out and adhered it with the Tombow power tabs !
( I must say these power tabs are SUPER sticky! WOW I must have more!)
 
 
I decorated the bouquet by using a SVG Cut from SVG Cutting Files, using Tombow mono aqua, stamp runner and foam tabs to put it all together.
Then I used a Tombow colored pencil "surprise red" to lightly color in the cheeks. Also adding glossy accents on the chocolate to give it a wet look.
 
 
For the center I used a cute cut out and paper by Imaginisce!!!
The die cut of the frame and the arrows are from Jaded Blossom "Layered frame and journal die" and the cute stamps also from Jaded Blossom set "Got S'mores"
 
 
I freaked out when I found these marshmallow skewers at Target for only $1 !! They extend out like an antenna and aren't sharp at the ends !
My kids have tried them and they have been "approved" LOL !
 
Instead of cutting the package to cover up the printed price tag, I used the Jaded Blossom candy charm and banner dies with a stamp from the Got S'mores set. I adhered those with the Tombow Power tabs !
 
 
For the graham cracker I attached a bamboo stick to the Imaginisce paper to support the weight of the crackers, then used a bag to seal it, and tied at the end.
 
 
And a picture just to show the foam tabs are awesome for making your projects 3 dimensional !! Like its popping right out at you !!!
 
 
Sometimes its hard to "see" the awesome products so these are the adhesives from Tombow I used ♥
 
 
 
Thank You SOOOOO much for stopping by !!!
 
Remember to comment on each of the blogs the more comments, the more chances to win AND you need to "like" both Tombow HERE and Imaginisce HERE facebook pages.
