Puttin’ on the Glitz!

Hello friends! Today I am going to share some glitzy techniques for your cards and scrapbook pages. This video will show you how to incorporate a lot of hot trends quickly and easily in your cards, scrapbooks or art journals:

You can find the supplies I used from Papermart. I had a good time using these sparkly products, I have been using their awesome (and cheap, only 99 cents!) glitter for years and found that the Mod Podge held it in place beautifully. I wanted to use small mirrors on my scrapbook page but I was worried that they would cut the page protector, I don’t have that worry now that I made them from candy foil and cardstock! The bokah look stenciling and misting was fun and easy too! If you want to learn how to make the daubers and spray mists I used today you can check out my video here. Doilies, what can I say, I’ve used them a lot lately (and I have another doily project this week!) so if you buy some gold doilies you might want to grab a box of white ones too, they are  a steal of a deal and so fun! The shipping tagsare also a steal if you don’t have them yet and now you know how to print on them! Well, I know you want to rush into your craft space and try out these techniques so I won’t keep you, thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!

WOYWW: You’ve Got Style!

*** Hellow WOYWWers, you can enter my stamp set give away here!****

Happy What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday folks! I got to play with the brand new stamp set Style Girl from Pink Persimmon and I made this card and envie:

Unfortunately I ended up covering over the background I decopagued with a sewing pattern and spray misted but luckily I snapped a pic of my desk while the card was in process, I hated to cover up all of that inky goodness but it is a BACKGROUND and it is supposed to be in the background right?

I stamped the chic lady on a panel that I tore straight out of a DCVW mat stack (they are such a  time save because they are 6.5″x4.5″, perfect to layer on a 5″x7″ card!) I stamped the lady again on a yellow print paper (MME) and cut it out and glued it over the  main panel. I added color with markers from my Tria Fashion color collection from Letraset, the colors were chic without me having to worry about it which is good because I have a tendency to be a bit gaudy with my color choices 😀

Well, that is all for today, I am sending this card to my mother, she is an avid sewer so she will enjoy it (plus I think it is a law that you have to adore any card your kid makes you LOL!) Til next time happy WOYWW and Happy crafting!
