Everyone knows that I have a bit of a problem when it comes to shopping especially when shopping for scrapbook supplies. One of my very favorite places to shop is ScrapbookSteals.com. They have TWO steals a day (9am and 9pm Mst). I religiously visit this site at least twice a day (sometimes more).
I order from them several times a month. I'm ashamed to say that my kids even know that they should always get the package off the step before dad gets home. (He doesn't really need to know everything, right?)
For the projects that I have to share today I got to use the Martha Stewart glitter. I admit that I'm a girly girl and I love things that sparkle. So creating with glitter was like a big party for me. My house is still sparkling from it.
The first project I have to share is a layout. I started this layout with a pile of chipboard circles that I've had in my stash forever. Because this glitter is so fine I needed some color on the chipboard before I spread the glitter on. I chose to cover my circles with paper. You could use any number of different things...paint, markers, spray ink, stamping ink...
After I covered the circles in paper I used spray adhesive and then applied the glitter. I then used the glittered circles as the main embellishment on my page.


The next project I have to share is a set of cards. I used the glitter and some glossy accents to dress up some stickers. I just highlighted some of the sticker with glossy accents and sprinkled the glitter on top. I did let the glue dry overnight before I tapped the excess glitter off, I wanted to make sure the glossy accents didn't run when I tipped the sticker.


I made another card with this glitter. I used it to accent the sticker as well as covering a piece of wood veneer.  I love how the glitter dressed up the cake stand and made it stand out. I'm so happy with how it turned out.
Thanks for stopping by! Congrats on hopping all the way to the end. Come back and visit again :)
