All this could be yours! Prizes, fun, inspiration and much more! So lets get the party started!


If you are a regular to our blog or a first timer, it probably means that you're taking a moment for yourself to indulge in your creative curiosity. So bravo to you! It's an essential element to being happy people, that we pursue that which makes us feel most connected to others in our collective experience. Crafting really is one of those unique art forms that allows us to deeply reflect in a positive way as well as share our personal connections with others. The layout that we are showing you today is a perfect example of the boundless potential of crafting. It was created by Tracey Locher, one of our lovely design team members. She took this precious photo, which on its own was just darling, and turned it into an even more beautiful work of art. Tracey used our enchanting new Once Upon a Springtime collection to create this adorable LO. Have a look!

Tracey - Dec 2010 - Once Upon a Springtime

“Okay, I’ll admit it, I am traditionally a Glue Dots gal, BUT I MUST QUICKLY ADD that is because I had not previously been introduced to the Micro Adhesive Squares by Glue Arts.  As you can see in this layout, I love designing with flowers and buttons and I need a small and strong adhesive that I can count on.  The Micro Squares worked great on this layout!  Note about all those flowers… with the exception of the three solid white flowers, all of those flowers were cut with my Cricut from Once Upon A Springtime papers!" -Tracey Locher


Graphic 45:  Once Upon A Springtime Collection, “Enchanted Forest,” “Once Upon A Springtime,” “Butterfly Kisses,” “Spellbound,” ”Pixie Post,” “Tags”
Glue Arts:  Micro Extreme Adhesive Squares
Prima Marketing:  Three white flowers
Rusty Pickle:  Buttons

Thanks to Tracey Locher for her stunning layout. Keep checking back with all us week long for more fun and inspiration! We hope you have a wonderful day.
