Glue Arts and Webster's Pages

Hello friends!  Today Glue Arts and Webster's Pages are teaming up!  I did a couple projects with the Webster's pages line, "All About Me".  Don't you love the soft color palette and the shabby chic feel?  The first project started as a house (by Doodlebug Designs) and ended up a Birdhouse on a spool.  I got the 4" vintage spool at an antique shoppe and it seemed to work well with the size of the house.
The second project is a double pane frame and was made for our Design Team Coordinator, Julia.  This is a picture of her and her hubby on vacation!  Check out the Glue Arts blog for some fun projects!
