Supplies used: SEI Glitzmas paper, CTMH cardstock, CTMH Playful Flourishes stamp set, Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge by CTMH, CTMH Black ink, KI Memories Flourish Borders, Kaiser Rhinestones, CTMH Color-Ready Hodge Podge Alphabet Stickers, Martha Stewart Carrara Marble Glitter, and Recollections Glitter Shapes.
These sparkly pictures needed a page with lots of sparkle. I think I added that. I ordered the SEI paper online and for some reason only got one sheet and when I went back they were sold out. It must have looked different on my computer screen because I love it in person and was wondering why I didn’t order 2 sheets. I stamped the Pacifica blue cardstock with stamps from Playful Flourishes (one of my all-time favorite sets). I used the new CTMH Ruler for lining up the rhinestones for an embellishment border. I pictured glittery white letters for my title and really thought I’d find some in my stash but no such luck. So I had to create my own. I used a Zig Glue Pen to apply adhesive to the alphabet stickers, then covered with glitter and let dry.

Challenge: Paper Cutz Challenge #106 – Wish Upon a Star
I started with Julie’s layout in general and went from there. I ended up with the three pictures on the bottom and liked that but I struggled as I worked on the top of the page. I had a crown that I kept playing with but it didn’t make the final cut. I finally came up with the glitter stars and LOVE how they turned out! The large star is actually multiple ones that are layered together. I added the Glitter Glitz and it dried as one piece on the top and I was able to create the one large star that I wanted! I’m so glad it turned out because I used almost my whole bottle! The lamp on my desk gets quite hot so I set it under there and left it for a couple hours to dry. That’s my best note as far as how long it took to dry. Another option would have been to use my heat gun. You may notice I also added small glitter dots to the background paper.
One thing I did with this layout was combined new product with my old stash to create something I like. I remember when this paper first came out, I thought it was so cute. Today I had a hard time making it into something I liked with the matching stickers. By adding the border (new product) and glitter I was able to create a page that I was happy with and still use up some of my old stash.
Below is a closeup of the stars because they are so pretty! The smaller one is just a cardstock diecut attached with 3D foam tape

Supplies used: DCWV The Glitter Stack papers, Recollections Glitter Adhesive Borders, PC Stand-Outs, Heidi Swapp rubons, Me & My Big Ideas chipboard stickers, and misc buttons and dew drops from my stash. I used a Sketch Inspiration Sketch.
The Monthly Challenge on Scrap Our Stash for April is “Bring in the Sun”. I don’t know why this was so hard for me but I am very happy with the outcome. First, I was stumped for what I was going to do. I looked through my stash and didn’t have “sun” anything. Then I found swim pictures and thought I would focus on the color yellow (one that doesn’t make it into many of my layouts). Then, I added my own little mini challenge to not use pink. In the end, I love the layout. I think because it is so different and that will make a nice addition to my books. Go over to Scrap Our Stash and join the challenge!
