Layouts Come Together Perfectly with Core-dinations & GlueArts!!

We'd like to know..

How many of you always begin a layout with a base of cardstock?

How many of you always use cardstock to matte your photos?

How many of you have ever sanded your cardstock?

Did you answer yes to any of those questions today?

Well do we have the projects for you! Both Designers Leslie Ashe and Audrey Pettit have designed beautiful layouts of some awfully pretty girls! Both have used cardstock not only as a background for their layouts but also as an embellishment! GlueArts Adhesives helps it all come together perfectly!!

1. I like to scrap 8.5 x 11, so the first step is to cut a sheet of Marabelle ColorCore Cardstock to size, and sand the embossed design with the Sand It Gadget. If you prefer to scrap 12 x 12, simply sand the background paper, and you are ready to go.

2. Cut a strip of patterned paper that is approximately 6" high to span the center of the layout. Adhere with Glue Arts High Tac Adhesive. Add layered trims to the top and bottom seam using Glue Arts Ribbon Adhesive, and machine stitch in place.

3. Embellish with chipboard stickers and rhinestone chain. Create title from small alpha stickers. I did my title in two parts, with one part cut into a banner strip and popped up with Glue Arts U Cut It Foam Adhesive.

4. Die cut or hand cut 3 large leaves from Mezzo ColorCore Cardstock and sand the embossed areas and edges with the Sand It Gadget. Adhere one leaf, along with a patterned paper banner strip, to the top left corner of the layout. Adhere the remaining two leaves using Glue Arts U Cut It Foam Adhesive, as shown.

5. Adhere flowers, bow, and buttons to the leaves using Glue Arts Extreme Adhesive Squares.

How Did You Ever Get To Be So Pretty?
GlueArts Designer: Leslie Ashe

A little about my project:
my title is just a little song that's been passed along for YEARS to babies in our family. This is the newest babe in our family so she's donned the sweet song every time we see her...
I made the circles different sizes to represent the tune of this little song.
I'd sing it to you - but you'd rather me let me just say that it's a sweet little song that makes babies smile big!

(I can't even tell you what tune it is...kinda a mix of a french childrens song called Alouette and another one, Frere Jacques.)

Glue Arts Supplies:
Glue Glider Pro w/Extreme Tac cartridge, 3D U Cut It Foam, Mini Extreme Adhesive Squares

Core'dinations Cardstocks: Essentials & Black Magic Collections, Sanding Block

Circle Punches: EK Success & Marvy
Ribbon: Offray
Letters: Doodlebug Designs
Stamp: Jenni Bowlin
Ink: American Crafts
Pen: Zig (silver and black)
cardboard: misc....
-sand Core'dinations slightly on entire 12 x 12 sheet-peel a sheet of cardboard in half to reveal the middle ripple core

-take a ribbon and wrap it around twice towards the left of your cardboard before tying it in a bow-glue it using a strong adhesive (Extreme Tac ROCKS!!!) towards bottom of page, leaving about 1.5" at bottom.-punch several different sized circles from different colors/patterns of cardstock

-use the sanding block to reveal the core of the cardstock-place your photo (I used an 8x10, just cut it down a bit to frame this sweet baby's face) towards right top of your layout. It will lie down on the cardboard, this is what you want. (use 3D foam for placement)

-punch smaller circles from some of the circles you punched above.-using the negatives from above circles 

- place under cardboard at bottom of pageand at top right, just under photo.

-now start placing your different sized circles below the photo, onto the cardboard -do the same with the smaller size

-and the same with the even smaller size (I used 3 different sized circles)-stamp a butterfly onto patterned paper-trim around the butterfly and place at top right of your layout.-take a strip of ribbon (about 6 ") and make a small knot at the left. then start slowly twisting and turning to make a knotted rose to add to the center of your butterfly. It's okay if you don't get it the first time, this one took me 3 tries to get it the way I wanted it.

-using letter stickers, spell out "how did you ever get to be so pretty" around the photo, framing your subject's face-journal along bottom of layout.-add subject's name to side of photo-add a small flower to center of bow
