2nd Saturday Recap

Embossing is a way to add a shiny finish to your stamped image and helps to add that little bit of Zing.

In the above layout, a pre-glittered snowflake meant for Christmas decorating was added as the bling. Bling seems to make things magical for children.

The bling on this page is the foil paper.

The center of the flowers are tiny mirrors on this page and add a special touch to a picture perfect child.

On this page, shiny organza ribbon and rhinestones in the center of the flowers add the perfect amount of zing for a great page design.

Sometimes all that is needed are the rhinestones on their own for a great design element.

This fun page was created by applying glue to the letters, flower, and purse with a glue pad and then sprinkling glitter on them. Some grade school techniques always work well.

On this page, glitter glue was added to the brad to add bling, and the title and flourish border are made from pearly Bazzill cardstock.

There are several scrapbook papers that come with their own bling added. They also may have matching embellishments. Be sure to look for those when picking out your paper.

Here we have used pre-shaped rhinestones as an elegant frame around the subject of the page.

I hope these ideas spark your creativity, and I look forward to seeing what you have created at our next class!
