Glue Arts Day One Swap!

We are so excited to be blog swapping with the talented Glue Arts Blog today!  If you aren't familiar with Glue Arts, they are, you guessed it...an adhesive company with some fun products.  Check out their full line at their website HERE.



Our designers were sent a ton of fun product to work with and I think I can say that everyone on the team loved the products. 

Make sure and check out our blog and comment each day.  You want to do the same thing over on the Glue Arts Blog also.  We will be giving away a collection kit a day to a lucky commenter who comments on BOTH blogs!   

Let's get the party started!  We have some fun stuff to show you and I don't want to wait any longer!

First up is Deana Boston with a layout idea that I am in love with!  She used the Exit Here collection and that sun just ROCKS!  She tells us a little about her page.

Exit Here... my favorite new collection!  The photos aren't of great quality, but I'm all for having pages with photos + journaling in our scrapbooks!  As for my "sun"... I hand-cut my shapes & then machine-stitched all the borders to further define it.  Then I added some of the 3D U Cut It adhesive Foam Blanks under the sun to add more dimension.


And Deana also made a fun Father's Day card using the Noah collection.

I used Glue Glider Pro under my Father Knows Best sentiment and the U Cut It 3D Adhesive Foam Blanks under my patterned paper so I could wrap my twine around my paper.




Next up, I (Katrina) have a layout using the Audrey collection.  I seem to be using this collection a LOT!

I used the Glue Glider Pro, which I fell in love with a long time ago, to adhere most of my layout.  Where I wanted dimension, I used the 3D UCut Foam Adhesive to raise items.  I did use it unde my title, just to make it stand out a little more.  I also found that the little Adhesive Squares were great to attach my blue scalloped border with.

 


Jennie McGarvey has done a wonderful card using the Exit Here collection.

I love to make feminine birthday cards since basically none of my scrapbook pages are feminine.  I LOVE the flowers in the Exit Here line and I knew using them would create a very special card.  That plus the Glue Arts Glue Glider made a quick card that is very beautiful and fun!



Laurel Seabrook made a cute card using the Audrey collection.  Love the shape!

I love working with the Glue Arts products.  I used the Adhesive Squares to hold the pieces in place so they didn't shift while I was sewing (the squares are so sticky I didn't need many!).  Once that was done I used the Adhesive squares to hold my twine, button and sentiment strip in place.  Finally, the Glue Glider Pro came in handy when I was adhereing the card front to the card base.  


Stacy Rodriguez made a cute card and tag.  She used the Audrey collection and the Messages collection.  

I felt that the Audrey line was the perfect way to go to create this Mother's Day card.  The Glue Arts Glue Glider Pro made putting this card together a breeze.  I also used the 3D combo pac to pop up the little banner piece at the top of the card and the heart at the bottom.


I also created this fun tag using the Messages line and a brown burlap button using the Glue Glider Pro.  Cutting a long strip of foam from the 3D combo pack made it easy to pop of the strip across the middle of the tag.


Melanie Jarocki made a cute little note pad out of the Messages collection.

A friend of mine who had her birthday this month enjoys getting handmade gifts. I covered this notepad for her so she could use it as a journal or a place to keep her lists. Since it was a notepad, I went with Nikki's Messages Collection, adding some red letters and burlap buttons. The Glue Arts products were perfect for this altered item! I used the Extreme Tac Half-inch adhesive squares to adhere the paper to the notebook covers. Then, for the paper on paper layers, I used the handy dandy Glue Glider Pro. It is so easy to use and the adhesive went on as smooth as butter."


That is all our projects for today!!  Be sure to check back tomorrow to see what else the other Diva's created!!  AND don't forget to comment on this blog posting today and the one tomorrow and also over at Glue Arts.  We will be giving away a collection kit to one lucky commenter from each day!
