Glue Arts and Glowing: Now with Glitter

I don't usually scrapbook many Halloween photos but I do always love the way they remind me of the fun we had. I still can't get over what a super duper cute Superman my baby made that year.
So, I got busy creating a page with these adorable pics, Authentique Paper's Glowing collection and Glue Arts brand adhesives.

I started by using my Glue Glider to run adhesive along the edges of my photo mat.

I then added glitter and watched the paper transform before my eyes. I loved the look of the glitter crusted edges.

Next, I used Glue Art's Raisen's to pop up the Trick or Treat title block on my page.

This was perfect because the ric-rac underneath didn't make the title bulge where the two overlapped.

Some more Raisen's for my hand cut banner.

I used the Glue Arts Mounting Squares to attach the rick-rack to my page and it held beautifully. Extreme tac just like the label states...I'm not worried about my trim shifting :)

Really, just a little piece of Heaven right here. :)

I loved the Glue Arts combopack of  Raisen's and U-Cut-It adhesive foam because I had the perfect dimensional adhesive choices all in one pack. I cut off a piece of the adhesive foam and used it to raise up my "Fright Night" label here.

I hope you enjoyed the tips I've shared here today and I know this year I'm going to make sure and scrap my Halloween pictures as soon as they're developed.

Happy Scrapping!

Misty this is just BEAUTIFUL!!! I NEED those products now! I've been wanting Glowing for a long time but it's starting to look like its not going to happen :(

I never even thought of using adhesive to set glitter. That is soo smart! This is an amazing page!
