Surf's Up Today With GlueArts and Fancy Pants!

Surf's Up!

Grab your GlueArts Adhesives, your Fancy Pants Beach Bum and Beach Babe lines and let's go surfing!! (sounds fun doesn't it?!)


Today's projects show how you can use Fancy Pants Beach Bum for layout and cards that are not a beach theme!!

Designer Grace Tolman (Happy Birthday to you Grace!!)  used the Fancy Pants Beach Bum products for a wrestling themed layout. And it works perfectly! GlueArts Perma Tac and U Cut It Foam make it a snap to make!

Designer Leslie Ashe...oh how we love this card and yes...it too uses the Beach Bum line which once again shows just how versatile the Beach Bum products are!

And last for today Jan Hennings as a fun Surf's Up Album that you too can make!!

10. I wanted to use a label sticker but since my page is not summer themed, I added a heart over the beach ball image.

11. I added the label sticker onto the other half of the sun die cut, added some more letter stickers and brads. I adhered it to the page over a spot on my focal picture where I wanted to cover up some other kid in the photo. I used some U Cut it foam to adhere the sun block.

12. Cut a strip of green dot paper that is about 4 x ¾” in size. Add a border punch (stamp one) to one edge and adhere to the layout using Perma Tac.

13. Use a die cut tag, add stickers and brads to it and then adhere to the layout using some Raisen’s.

14. I altered another sticker which is the star with a splash word, I penned the date of my layout and added that to the star sticker using mini square adhesive, then I added some raisen’s on the back of the star sticker and added that to my journaling block.

15. I handwrote my journaling and adhered the block to the layout using more Perma Tac.
