Big Bling

Making a shining statement on your next layout is easy with big bling. These sparkling rhinstone accents are lighting up the scrapbook stores like the Las Vegas Strip. And with varied layout themes, it's easy to see this product option is as versatile as it is pretty. Let those scrapbook pages twinkle with a little bling!

Color Your Bling

Expand your beautiful bling collection significantly with this technique--color clear bling with alcohol ink! With this approach, you can create colorful rhinestones to match any ink in your collection and complement your various designs.
