We've Got Style with Simple Stories and GlueArts!

We've got style yes we do...

We've got style how about you?!

Sorry...those cheerleading days never really do leave you do they?!

And why should they! When our designers saw the products from Simple Stories new Year.o.graphy collection...they were definitely cheering!

Just take a look at what Designer Lesley Langdon and Linda Albrecht have for you today!!

FEB. Style Layout
GlueArts Designer: Lesley Langdon 

For this layout, it was so easy to put together with this Simple Stories Year-o-graphy collection kit, that was full of things to cut out, like the folders and letters. Not to mention the large variety of stickers and alphas! Of course, putting it all together with my Glue Glider Pro+ cartridge was EASY, smooth and I know those papers are staying put! Exactly where I placed them. I love the Glue Arts Micro Adhesive Squares for the tiny embellishments. A regular adhesive square would have been seen, but the Micro Adhesive Squares are tiny and can be hidden. Perfect for twine, cord, buttons, etc.
