You'll Be So Happy with Pebbles & GlueArts!


Such a simply word that means so much!

Be Happy!

Don't worry be happy!

Right now you have the Bobby McFerrin song in your head don't you? And you know that's not a bad thing. There's something to be said about a happy attitude and how it affects your day!

"We tend to forget that happiness doesn't come as a result of getting something we don't have, but rather of recognizing and appreciating what we do have."  ~Frederick Keonig

We're happy because we recognize what amazing fans and designers we have here at GlueArts! Just look at what Designers Ania Lexander and Lisa Day have made for you today!!

I decided to use the cute paper flowers as my main embellishment for this layout, placing them on a wide paper ribbon.

Flip the ribbon and adhere U Cut It Foam on it for more dimension.

Thread the button and use extreme adhesive squares to secure the button to the layout.

As for the glitter flower brads, for my purpose I preferred to glue them to the layout instead of making holes for the brad. Hence I needed to cut out the brad-part of them. It was easily done. Then I used Raisen's to adhere these to the layout.

For my journaling strips I prefer to use the GlueArts Ribbon Adhesive. Works like a charm!

I See You Mini Album
GlueArts Designer: Lisa Day

This album is based on a class that Stacy Julian is teaching this September. She asked me to create my version of this with products I love and gave me permission to use it as a design team project so I'm happy to be able to share it with you all today!

Step 1 - Cut a picture and a piece of paper to 4.25 x 3.75 and adhere the picture to the front of the mini album with PermaTac and the paper to the back.

Step 2 - Use a small circle punch (I used an old school paper punch) and punch out a lot of small random circles. Run some strips of Perma Tac around the outside edge of your mini album and spine, be sure to cover the bare part of the album and overlap the picture/paper. Randomly layer the circles over the adhesive.

Step 3 - Use the Micro Adhesive Squares to add adhesive to the back of the circles to fill in any gaps.

Step 8 - To decorate the tin - add the mini circles the same way you did to the mini album. Add a 3D sticker. Adhere the flag to the mini album using U-Cut it Foam. Add your title. Tie on some ribbon to the handle.

Step 9 - Print out and trim your picture to the size of the clear opening in the tin. Add some Vellum Adhesive to the top and bottom of your picture and adhere it to the inside of the tin.

The Vellum Adhesive gives a perfectly clear bond to your picture.
