GlueArts Designer: Grace Tolman

I was in love with the Studio Calico classic kit that we get to use in this team up. I was especially inspired by all of the pattern papers. They are very sophisticated and so I decided to make a “me” page. It’s not often I do so and the papers went perfectly with my theme. 

Supplies Used:
Glue Arts Perma Tac
Glue Arts Raisen’s
Glue Arts U cut it foam
Cardstock- Bazzill
Pattern paper- Basic Grey; Sassafrass; Studio Calico; Pebbles
Letter stickers- Picadilly, Basic Grey
Butterfly chipboards- Sassafrass
Brads- Basic Grey
Stamp- Hero Arts
Die cut shape- Studio Calico
Pen- Creative Memories
Border punch- Martha Stewart Crafts, Fiskars
Thread- Coats and Clark
Sewing Machine- Kenmore
Ink- American Crafts, Tsukineko
Tape- Studio Calico
Square punch- Marvy Uchida


1. First off, mark 2” squares on the left side of the paper. Machine stitch the lines and then add a border punch to the top edge of the paper. 

2. Punch out squares from the pattern paper. I punched out two from each since they are double sided. Ink the edges with brown ink pad. 

3. Adhere the papers into the square spaces with Perma tac adhesive. 
4. Trim a piece from the lined paper, add a border punch to the left side of the paper and then adhere the letter stickers. Make the title stand out more by adding pen mark around the letter stickers. Ink the edges. 
5. Add some tape on the top and bottom right of the layout. 
6. Pick three chipboard butterflies and add brads to the centers. 

7. Adhere these chipboards in empty square spaces with Glue Arts Raisen’s. 
8. Mat the photo with black cardstock, trim and then adhere to the center of the card with Glue Arts Perma Tac. 
9. Stamp on one of the die cut starburst shape and then adhere that to the top left side of the page with Glue Arts Foam adhesive. 
10. After looking at the page from a far, I found that the light colored letter stickers are not very readable so I made them stand out more by adding pen lines around the letters.
