A ‘Love’ly Layout

Welcome to Day 4 of May Arts / Glue Arts Blog Week!

A 'Love'ly Layout



Santa brought a Sew Easy tool in my stocking and I really wanted to try it out using some May Arts SM09, SM14 jute string instead of traditional thread. I loved the "natural" look the jute gave. The heart border along the side of the page were made with old pages from a book. The Glue Glider Pro is my new favorite adhesive and I used it here on all the paper goods! A hidden journalling tag was accented with little tab made from crocheted trim 361-58-10 and the faux linen 368-15-18, adhered with the Ribbon Adhesive from Glue Arts, added some fun texture and color.  If you have any questions please ask! Thanks Glue Arts for such a versatile line of adhesives!
