The Great Outdoors Album
GlueArts Designer: Jenny Chesnick

Supplies Used:

Glue Glider Pro- Perma Tac
U-Cut 3D Foam
Core-dinations Cardstock
Embellishments & Pattern Paper by American Crafts
Twine by the Twinery
Silhouette SD

The wood grain card stock by Core-dinations was one of my favorite patterns. It suited itself well with my favorite camping line! Using my Silhouette SD I cut out library pockets with matching tags to create a mini album.

“Home Is Where the Heart Is” CARD
GlueArts Designer: Patti Milazzo

Supplies: 
Glue Arts:
Glue Glider Pro with
1/4 High Tac PRO+ Cartridge Refill - Pro
U-Cut-It Adhesive Foam
Extreme Adhesive Squares
Extreme Micro Adhesive Squares

Core’dinations Cardstock:
Sand It Gadget
Dust Buddy
Core Impressions – Cosmo Cricket Classics
Vintage Collection – Retro Mod Squad
Tim Holtz – Distressed Collection
Black Magic

Other:
Cosmo Cricket Mr. Campy pattern paper
Fiskars – Leaf and Dragonfly Squeeze Punches; Border Punch; “The Simple Things” stamps

Instructions:
1. Cut a 4” x 6” piece of Core’dinations Cardstock (green) and tear across the bottom. This will be the foundation of the layers and the bottom layer shown.
2. Next, cut 6 – 2” x 4” pieces of Core’dinations Cardstock. I used a mix from different collections to create my fall palette. Tear and border punch along the length of each piece. Use the Sand It Gadget to sand the already embossed (love that!) patterns as well as the border punched edges to continue the distressed look. Use the handy Dust Buddy to gather up any debris from sanding.

3. Cut a 4.5” x 6.5” piece of cardstock (plum colored), distress the edges with a craft knife or other sharp blade and adhere it to the front of a 5” x 7” card.
4. With the Glue Glider Pro and High Tac Pro+ Cartridge, apply adhesive to the back (top) of each layer. Begin layering from the bottom up, keeping layers about .5” apart. Cut 1” strip of coordinating pattern paper to adhere at the top.

5. Cut a 2.5” x 4.5” tag from light cardstock. Ink and adhere near the top of the pattern paper strip.
6. Stamp the greeting/sentiment in a 2.5” circle. Punch a heart from red cardstock and adhere to the greeting with an Extreme Micro Square.

7. Attach a piece of tied ribbon to the top of the tag with an Extreme Adhesive Square. Apply a piece of U-Cut-It Adhesive Foam to the back of the circle and adhere that near the left side of the tag.
