Today's first incredible creation was made by Laura Denison. It's a gorgeous Changeable Photo Display Tray! This is such a wonderful craft that is a lot of fun to make. It would also make the perfect gift for the holidays! Follow Laura's fun and easy instructions to create one of your very own! Take it away, Laura!

I love the Scrapbook Adhesives 3D Foam Squares! I used them here to create a Changeable Photo Display Tray.

For this project, create a 2 1/2" x 12" open top box from chipboard. 
You will also need eight 12" long 1/4" dowels. 
Paint or ink your dowels.

Attach dowels together with 3D Foam Squares. 
This will give the perfect spacing for you mattes/photos. 
Attach the dowels to the inside of the box bottom

Create chipboard mattes in your desired size. 
Make 5 to 7 mattes.
Add patterned paper and embellishments to mattes.

Place mattes into slots between dowels, staggering sizes, orientation, and horizontal placement.

This would also be a great way to display Christmas cards, or tags....maybe even a calendar on one of the mattes.

Next up is this incredibly beautiful and imaginative layout titled "Create one Dream" by Betto Cesare. All the adorable characters in Graphic 45 papers come to life in this brilliant LO! Using fussy cutting, paper layering and Scrapbook Adhesives 3-D Foam Squares, Betto created a colorful layout with incredible dimension! There is so much vivid color and imagination in this layout! Wow!

"My idea with this project was to collage various roles with different cutouts giving them dimension and depth with the help of adhesives and mainly with the help of Scrapbook Adhesives 3D foam squares." -Betto Cesare
