It’s easy to incorporate chalk, metallics, and bling into your artwork with a few embellishments you can use on your everyday papercrafting projects. Let us show you how!

This Merry & Bright page uses dots created with the gold metallic marker to add extra sparkle around the edges of the page. Notice the scalloped accents with outlines in gold marker which adds dimension and draws your eye. Our metallics markers will make your artwork sparkle!

Add heart to your art with an extra touch of bling—cover your Dimensional Elements with silver Glitz™ glitter gel, a clear Sparkle or two, or a touch of silver from the metallics marker! Your heartfelt messages will bedazzle your loved ones.

The chalk marker and 12″ × 12″ chalkboard sheet are a perfect pair for creating a unique project. Journal and embellish your memories with the quaint look of a chalkboard—minus the dust—and a lot of freehand fun, perfect to display in your albums or on your walls!

Another year has come and gone.  Why is it that the older we get, the faster time seems to go?!?  My 2012 goal was 303 layouts/cards/projects.  I ended up completing 281.  That’s only 22 shy from my goal, not bad!  For 2013, I have decided not to have a specific goal as I have the past couple years, but rather to just get as much done as I can!  LOL  I have found a system that seems to work well….matching photos with sketches, then with papers, then adding embellishments and finishing touches.  I will be using a lot of sketches this year.  They really help in giving me a start, even if my project looks nothing like it when I’m finished.  Here’s to a Happy Scrappy 2013!
