Enjoy the Journey with Kaisercraft & GlueArts Adhesives

"Laugh as much as you breathe and love as long as you live." 


Often we need those reminders in our busy lives to take a moment to stop, reflect and reset. 


Life is a journey. A journey of ups and downs, highs and lows, good and yes bad. Add some laughter to your days and those lows aren't so low, those "bad" days hopefully not so bad and those downs...start to rise back up again.


Today we have two beautiful projects using Kaisercraft's new Pink Gelato and Velvet Ensemble lines. 


Designer Kristen Swain has made a special piece...a clock! It's filled with beautiful details, GlueArts adhesives and yes...keeps time too! Designer Leslie Ashe has a gorgegous card for you today using our Glue Glider Pro and the Velvet Ensemble line. We loved the ribbon she chose along with the greeting...don't you?
