CTMH December Product Spotlight Blog Hop

Welcome to the December 2010 Close to My Heart Product Spotlight Blog Hop.  If you are coming from Tracy’s Blog you are on the right track.  If you are starting here, the hop creates a circle so just continue until you make your way back here and you will have completed the loop.

This month we are featuring the popular Pearls and Sparkles!  They are among my favorite embellishments.  They are easy to add to any project to give it a finishing touch.  I created a simple layout and the Sparkles really added the extra “wow” factor.  The red sparkles are easy to see.  The bitty ones I used on the flowers of the patterned B&T paper.  The Let’s Get Together paper that I used is no longer available but you could use this technique on any pattern.

Supplies used: Let’s Get Together paper, Colonial White & Garden Green cardstock, Bitty Sparkles, and Red/Pink/Purple Sparkles.

Layout Challenge: #127 of 210

  3. Helen Onulak Says:

    Love the rows of three sparkles above and below the photo – a nice touch. Funny, if you didn’t tell me, I’d have thought the others were brads…so makes me think, we can really use Opaques anywhere we’d put a brad – and they are faster, simpler & easier being self-stick.
