Glue Arts Extreme Adhesive Squares
Glue Arts Glue Glider Pro and Perma Tac refill
Glue Arts U-Cut it foam adhesive

1. Choose one 4x6 photo for each of your pages and ink the edges. Layer the papers with the photos, leaving swirls and other details on the papers visible as you lay the pages out. Ink all papers.
2. Use the Glue Arts Glue Glider Pro and the U-Cut it foam to attach your papers and pictures to all the pages.
3. Use the included stickers to embellish the pages. 

Sprinkle glitter, embossing powder or even baby powder on the back of the sticker.
Shake off the excess powder and remove the backing from the foam to attach the sticker to your page or album.
The main part of the sticker won't end up stuck to your page anywhere you don't want it to be and you have a cute, matching dimensional embellishment!
4. Use the glitter glue to add extra sparkle to the papers and stickers.
5. For the album, use Glue Arts Extreme Adhesive Squares to attach papers and small embellishments to the album front and use the Glue Gun to attach heavier chipboard die-cuts. Re-cover the album with the plastic sleeve to keep it from getting dusty.

HINT: You can add dimension with the stickers by adding the U-Cut it foam to the back of the stickers. Just attach pieces of the foam to the back of the sticker you want to lift off the page and leave the paper backing on the side of the foam still facing up.
