Sparkle & Shine

by Dorathy Gilchrist

We've reached that time of year where nature and people really shine, whether it be with snowflakes, smiles, or acts of kindness. Your scrapbook can reflect that sparkle as you glitter your memories this season.

Glitter stickers are one of the simplest ways to add some pizzazz to your page. Add attention-getting bling to a title with glitter letters like these by American Crafts

*For another example of using glitter stickers, see December's issue, page 77.

 

If you are more of the do-it-yourself type, making your own letters with cardstock and glitter can be tons of fun. This title was made from cardstock by Die Cuts With A View and coarse-grained glitter.

Tip: Larger letters and embellishments are perfect for your everyday craft glitter, which has a coarser texture (larger pieces). This type of glitter works well with liquid adhesives such as  Quickie Glue pen by Sakura.
