Simple Joys with GlueArts and Imaginisce


Simple Joys

This time of year it's a good thing to stop and reflect on the simply joys!

Beautiful fall leaves, clear skies, blooming mums...and let's not get started on the fall food we love too!

Today we're back with projects from the GlueArts Designers and Imaginisce's Happy Harvest! Designer Kristen Swain has an amazing fall wreath for you today! Our Perma Tac Adhesive and Extreme Adhesive Squares are the key to creating this project!

Designer Jaime Warren...has a beautiful layout celebrating fall family traditions! Our GlueArts U Cut It Foam is the key to making the embellishments stand out! Given there is zero waste and you can cut the foam to any shape!

Simple Joys Wreath
GlueArts Designer: Kristen Swain



Supplies:


Imaginisce Papers/stickers/diecuts- Happy Harvest Collection
Cricut Machine
Paper Doll Dress Up Cartridge- for leaves
ribbon
6x6 canvas
eyelet screws
buttons/twine
Petaloo flower
craft supply glitter stems


Instructions:

1. Cover front of canvas with paper, cut out large circle with red paper, then cut out leaves using Cricut Machine and adhere them in circle on canvas using Hot Glue Gun.

2. Add ribbon and eyelet screws to top of canvas, then tie knots to hand canvas.

3. Hot Glue on glitter stems and buttons to canvas, also use Hot Glue to adhere ribbon to bottom of leaf wreath.

4. Use Extreme Adhesive Squares to adhere rose to button.

5. Use UCutIt foam to adhere quote saying to center of wreath.


Happy Autumn Layout
GlueArts Designer: Jaime Warren

Supplies:

Glue Glider Pro
U Cut It 3D Foam Adhesive
Imaginisce Sticker Stackers, Die Cuts, Patterned Paper 
American Crafts Thickers Alphabet Stickers

I absolutely loved all of the fun embellishments and gorgeous colors of the Imaginisce line! It went perfectly with my Autumn photos!

To start out I simply layered two sheets of patterned paper - I trimmed the top sheet to fit snugly in the center of the bottom sheet and then attached it with my Glue Glider Pro.

Next I added an Imaginisce Die-Cut tree to the bottom left hand corner. To the right of the die-cut I added three of my Instagram photos.

I love how easy the Imaginisce Die-Cuts made my title work! I always struggle with coming up with a title! I simply attached the die-cut with U Cut It 3D Adhesive Foam Blanks. Then I added more alphas to finish the title off, directly below the die cut.

 Now it's time for more embellishments! I layered on more die-cuts and sticker stackers. I love the cloth feel of the stickers! I attached each one with the U Cut It Foam Adhesive!

 To keep everything balanced, I cut one of the stickers in half and attached it to the opposite side of the layout. 

I attached my journaling strips above my photos and added a few drips of mist to help complete the look. I also added a border around the layout - not a complete one, mind you, but, bits of border. I love tearing the paper around the edges just a bit to let the border peek out!
