Vintage Love with Kaisercraft & GlueArts

We're back with more unique and beautiful projects today using GlueArts adhesives and Kaisercraft's two newest lines....Pink Gelato and Velvet Ensemble.

One line is soft, light and sweet...the other elegant,deep and rich in color. Two completely opposite looks and styles yet when you see our designers projects they flow together beautifully.

Today we have a special project from Designer Linda Albrecht. She made vintage collage blocks and one of these beautiful blocks has a picture of her Grandma. Linda used our Adhesive Squares to help complete this special keepsake.

Designer Patti Milazzo has a card to make your heart swoon! She perfectly breaks down each step so you too can make it and send it off to someone special!

2. For the top of one block, cut several flowers from dressmakers tissue using a diecut machine. Layer flowers, spray with a color mist, allow to dry, sew flowers together then adhere to the top of block with hot glue. Adhere wood knob onto the center of the flower.

Designer Tip: These Extreme Adhesive Squares are crazy sticky. I cut off the individual square from the strip then lay it onto the piece that I will be adding to the project, rub it on & remove protctive backing. Removing them from anything is practically impossible so place your square carefully and then feel really, really confident that what you used it on will stay there :-)

6. To remaining block, adhere photo then use Extreme Adhesive Squares to apply the glass knob to the top of the block and to apply flowers and small chipboard butterfly.

If anyone would like the vintage images please visit my blog and request them. Two of them are ones that I recieved online for free, but I colorized them in Photoshop. The other is a photo of my grandmother that I'd be happy to share also.
