Glue Arts Week – Camilla Ekman

June 25, 2011

Hi everyone! I have also had the chance to try Glue Arts products. And I made a card to share with you all.

Card “40” by Camilla Ekman: Paper Pad – Chapter One (PP843); Speciality acetate Theatre (PS151)

Other: butterfly punch, scalloped circle punch, flower, leaves, thickers

First I used the Glue Glider PRO to adhere the papers and I really liked how easy it was to load the cartridge.

Then, to create depth to my card I mounted the scalloped circles and the butterflies onto the card using the 3D adhesive foams. I really liked that you can cut as large or small pieces you need.

Finally, I adhered the flower and the leaves using the adhesive squares. Perfect type of adhesives for all flower lovers out there.

Don’t forget to check out all the other great products that are available over at the Glue Arts blog or on their facebook page.

Timeless Rub Ons Week

June 13, 2011

Hello fellow desingers! Hopefully your long weekend has been lovely!
…And the best part’s still not over!!

To keep us busy on this lovely public holiday…here something I know you will all love…Kaisercrafts NEW Timeless Rub Ons!

They are just so gorgeous and will go with so many collections that the possibilities of what to do with them are endless!

To celebrate these new Rubons, we will be having this whole week full of posts dedicated to ideas of how to use these ever-so-versatile- Rubons!


Kerryn from our Contributing Design Team says “I am in love with the new Timeless rubons.  There is 1 to suit any layout theme.
I have to admit I am a bit all over the place when it comes to the order I scrap photos though.  They are usually chosen at random to suit a paper or challenge and are therefore usually at least a year or so old.  But sometimes it is nice to scrap those recent memories and moments while they are still fresh.  So this time I decided to print a really new photo taken of my daughter and I on the day we went to see Wicked – the Musical.  The Theatre and Chandelier rubons worked perfectly with the Velvet Ensemble collection to create that Theatre “feel” I wanted for my page.
Rubons are so flexible.  The chandelier was rubbed onto transparency so that it could be placed over the chipboard piece while the filmstrip was used directly onto the patterned paper as a backdrop to my title.”
