  1. Foam boards are great for mixed media backgrounds, for 3D decorations, but I use them as stamp backgrounds as well, drawing on them with glue gun, and stencils I use endlessly for printing, painting, embossing and molding. Thanks for the hop, great projects in it!

  8. I never would have thought to use foam board for mixed media (I'm new to this anyway). I've only used it for son's school projects and for my vision board. The blog hop has given me lots of ideas. Thanks!

  9. Foam board is perfect for book covers and, because it is light but sturdy, wonderful for mail art.

  10. Foam nirvana! One of my favorite ways to use foam board is for greeting cards. They give the recipient a little piece of art that's more likely to be treasured.

  12. You want me to tell you how I would use the foam board if I won it but it would probably be easier to say what I WOULDN'T use it for! SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO many things come to mind on how I would use it...books, as a "canvas", making puzzles for the grandkids, mobiles, home d├ęcor pieces, decorative ornaments, making organizers, portable doodle canvas and oh so many other things! As the ever so famous Buzz Lightyear says, "To infinity and beyond!" That is how many possibilities there are for using this awesome foam board in my opinion! Thanks for having so many great hops and for introducing me to such great companies!!!
