MME Enamel Dots - Love these little things....and some scrappy news!

CLICK HERE FOR THE CITRUS TWIST KIT GIVEAWAY(S)!

Hola and Happy Tuesday! 

Yesterday, I was up on the MME blog with a layout using the new MME Enamel Dots.  Have you seen these things yet?  They are so amazing and such a great twist on your typical rhinestones and bling.  LOVE.THEM!

When I first saw these, I immediately thought of the typical uses for these, such as centers of flowers and for small little embellishment clusters.  But as I started playing around with them, I thought of another idea....using them as a border.  When using them in quantity, they become a strong visual element and have a fresh and new look to borders typical created from paper.  


 To create the background on my layout, I layered three styles of decorative tape in a large chevron pattern. { I love to use decorative tape this way.  :)}  Before I placed my enamel dots on my page, I wanted to  move them around to find the best position.  So I cut the enamel dots (including the plastic packaging) into strips, so I could move them in various spots on my layout before adhering them.




To finish my layout, I added  a chipboard banner and layered sticker banner to the top of the page, several label stickers and my title.  It was a really simple and easy layout, but by adding the enamel dots it made it a fun and fresh new design.

I would love to hear your ideas for using Enamel Dots.   

And one more thing before you go today.  I have a bit of happy news!  I am published in my first ever Creating Keepsakes.  I am featured in the Annual 'Top 10' Section.  WOO HOO!!  The magazine hit the stands today.  I am so excited about this and can't wait to get my hands on a copy.


Here is a link to the issue (if interested)  ...


I hope you have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by!
