Make it sparkle!

Creating a layout with sparkle is easy. The tiny bit of sparkle around the photos is created by using a sheet of glitter paper for the photo mounts. The title for the page was cut with the CTMH Cricut Artiste cartridge. I used the negative and mounted it on strips of the same glitter paper for more sparkle.

Hoppy Easter!

Making a cute card with some sparkle is so easy! I stamped the Hoppy Easter bunny with Whisper ink then colored in the ears, nose and tail with Stardust Glitz Glitter Gel. The egg has some Green Glitz Glitter Gel and the pink bands were colored with markers.
The colorful print B&T from the Chantilly paper pack makes a perfect mount for the bunny. When everything is adhered to the card front just add a few squiggles of Stardust Glitz to complete the pretty sparkle border!

Treat Bags!

Happy St. Pat's Day! I love using Ghirardelli Chocolate Squares and making pretty treats to give away. The new CTMH Paper Pouches are perfect for this. Here you see the small bag which is 3" x 4". The shamrock is just 6 hearts, scored down the center, then folded and glued onto a piece of kraft cardstock. I added a dot of Green Glitz Gel in the center for a bit of sparkle. The piece of kraft cs is corner punched & I added a dry embossed border. I finished the package by punching two small holes in the top of the bag and tying a bow with the Baker's Twine Hemp.
