And do we have some cool stuff for you today!

Designer Lydia Jackson created this awesome Halloween wall hanging for us today. Lydia does just amazing things with her Fiskars Paper Crimper!  Here  is what Lydia says about Glue Arts, “I used the extreme adhesive dots, love these things, they are the only thing that will actually hold these florettes.” So if you are interested in recreating this project…..grab your Black Magic Cardstock from Core and Glue Arts!!!

And a close-up. Check out this awesome, awesome detail.

And Designer Kim Jefress made this adorable card for us today, too.

Here is a little bit about how Kim put this card together. From start to finish it is just gorgeous. AND don’t forget….Glue Arts is PERFECT for any project…cards…layouts..mini albums…ANY crafting project. The base of the card and to attach the pattern paper I used the GLUE GLIDER PRO. To give the hot air balloon a lift  and to create dimension on my card I used the U CUT IT 3d adhesive block. The colors are just beautiful, too. LOVE the balloon in the Vintage cardstock, don’t you?

The U Cut It Foam adhesives give the perfect dimension to this card.

Make sure you come back TOMORROW for our last day of projects and your last chance to comment to win.

I took a class that had some debossing projects and it was very easy and looked great. A Cuddlebug would be the ideal thing to pratice this fun technique.

LaRayne….PELASE make sure you contact us through the contact button because I cannot access your contact information via your comment or send us a message on our Facebook page.

Stay tuned tomorrow for some more inspiration!  We are going straight through the weekend so don’t forget to stop by and check us out.
