It's Valentine Treat Week With GlueArts!

It's February!

And that means signs of pink and red, hearts and candy galore! We're jumping in on the fun all this week sharing with you Valentine's treats and more using our GlueArts U Cut It Foam.

GlueArts U Cut It Foam is unique in that there is zero waste! That means you can cut the foam to the exact shape and size you need. Want to run it through your diecut machine? That's another feature we love about it. Our U Cut It Foam comes packaged with two 4 by 4 inch sheets that we know once you will love!

Love You Layout
GlueArts Designer: Jaime Warren

I just love Valentine's Day - the pinks, the reds, the hearts. Most of all I love that it's a celebration of love. My layout isn't necessarily just for Valentine's - I try to tell my family I love them all of the time, in a variety of ways. This layout is all about my "baby" girl Hailey (who will be 12 in a few months!!)

GlueArts U Cut It Foam
Glue Glider Pro
PermaTac Minis

To start, I layered my two background patterned paper sheets and attached using my Glue Glider Pro. 
I cut a doily in half and attached it to the top center of my layout and then, layered the other half under it, to the right side. I used my sewing machine to stitch a simple line through the top doilie. Then I added my photo and hand cut flower by tucking it into and under the doilies. I punched out a tab using my favorite tab punch and attached it using U Cut It Foam (the best foam adhesive around folks!!!)

Then I continued the layering at the bottom center of the layout - mimicking the top design. I used more U Cut It Foam to pop the hand cut flowers for extra dimension. Then I added my title to the center of the layout and stitched a single line over the alphabet stickers.

To finish the layout I added some "confetti" and my journaling to the layout. To attach both the confetti and journaling I used my Perma Tac Minis.

We're all getting back into the swing and also going through our photos to compile a video for you to enjoy! To kick off this week we have some amazing prizes from our GlueArts partners!
