Welcome to Nikki Silvis Week

Guess what?!

We're kicking off a brand new week of ideas and inspiration and a BRAND NEW partner!

We're so excited that we've teamed up with Nikki Silvis and her talented team of designers all this week!

That means ideas, layouts, cards, and more and yes...chances to win both here on the GlueArts blog and on the Nikki Silvis blog too!

We're kicking off this week with a cute layout from Designer Grace Tolman using the brand new
Exit Here Collection! Designer Linda Albrecht has an amazing assortment of beautiful tags with all sorts of goodies on them! Both Designers chose our Glue Glider PRO+ to help keep everything in place!

I used the Exit Here collection to produce this two page layout about a part of a family road trip vacation two years ago. As a scrapbooker, I took almost 300 photos of our two week trek but decided to split them up into a few pages so I don’t feel overwhelmed in trying to fill a single scrapbook page with tons and tons of photos. With the help of a themed collection like this from Nikki Sivils and Glue Arts adhesive, making this project was easy as pie.
