This was such a fun card to make! I found the princess crown (by K&Company) on clearance at Walmart and I’ve been wanting to use it. It lights up! The frame is CTMH’s Flower Power Stickease (retired). I used my Liquid Glass (CTMH) to draw the swirls and add glitter (Martha Stewart carrara marble). Then I added the dark pink rhinestones (Kaisercraft) as a finishing touch. Now I just don’t know where this card will end up because it is perfect for a little girl I know but she JUST had a birthday. It might have to wait for next year to come around. Whatever happens I know the recipient will be a little girl and she will love it.

Well, it’s a new week and I haven’t had much time to scrapbook so I’ll give you another review since it’s been awhile. Pictured above is the Magnetic Precision Mat by Basic Grey. I purchased mine at Hobby Lobby with a coupon. The package will include the mat, a magnetic metal ruler and eight small magnets. You can use the small magnets to position things on your page before adhering them. Liquid glass (from CTMH) is my favorite adhesive for chipboard and I love using this mat to hold the chipboard in place while it dries. The magnets are very strong. It has a 12×12 grid printed on the mat which is great for positioning things and to use in combination with the ruler when aligning pieces across a page. I consider this a basic tool that I use every time I scrapbook.

These card kits by CTMH are so great! They are quick and easy to put together. It’s the perfect thing to do when I’m not feeling creative or need something to grab when scrapbooking away from home. You can make the cards as they are designed or you can mix it up and make your own. Pictured above is the My Originals From the Heart Card Kit. I added cocoa ribbon and used some pop dots. The kits come with enough supplies to make 12 cards, including the envelopes, and they are very reasonably priced.
Here’s another kit: Snowflakes (retired). I added silver eyelets, liquid glass, and prisma glitter to my cards.

I just love adding glitter and sparkle embellishing to my scrapbook pages. This page includes some store-bought items as well as handmade embellishments. The glitter paper is DCWV. The glitter alphabet is Miss Elizabeth. I made all the flowers by stamping, adding liquid glass (CTMH), and sprinkling with prisma glitter (CTMH). Once dry, I cut them out and added the different centers. The stamps are an unknown set that I purchased off QVC.
