All That Glitters: A Card Duo

I love glitter.  But I really love glitter that stays put as with Pink Paislee’s Luxe Glitter Alphabets
 Have you ever looked at a pack of letters and see them take on different shapes?
  Maybe cut them in half and create a whole new look?  I’ve done that today with a set of the 
Luxe Gold Glitter Alphabets…the O’s and the Q’s to be exact!

 For this card I made a beautiful glittery gold border by cutting the letters in half and then applying them to the edge of the Hope Chest Journal Card.  To hide where the pieces join together, I simply added an adhesive rhinestone.

 To add just a bit more sparkle, I lined up a couple of Hope Chest’s Burlap Butterflies and the top portion of a butterfly clip.  The shine from the Luxe Gold Chevron paper lends a subtle shimmer...
just the right amount of pizazz!

For the next card I went with a lot more shimmer than glitter.  I highlighted the Portfolio Puffy Glitter Alphas on this card, along with the Luxe Heart Placemat that I cut down to size.
 After determining the size of the placemat, I punched out different patterns of paper from the Secret Crush papers and attached them to the backs of the heart openings.

 And who said Secret Crush was just for Valentine’s Day?  Professing love should be used any day of the year :)  I die-cut a banner and then lined up the Puffy Alphabet Stickers on the top.  A silvery arrow to the side adds just the shine to complete the card.

 For a really ‘polished’ look, I sanded around the edges of the placement…this also helped to hide the areas where the chipboard was cut apart.  Layer with even more  hearts and stickers if you like!

If you're into digital creations then you'll love the gorgeous ideas shared by

♥A little about me♥  I'm currently designing for Doodlebug Design and Scrapbook Adhesives and have had the honor of serving on 20+ manufacturers or retailer  design teams over the years!  When I'm not working as a school administrative assistant, you can almost  always find me crafting cuteness for my Etsy Shop: Dot & Whimsy :) Aside from paper-crafting, I also enjoy making jewelry, cross-stitch, embroidery,  home decorating, reading and watching reality TV. But enough about little 'ole me...let's get on to the give-a-way!
With Valentine's Day right around the corner, I set out to find the perfect curation  of all things "red" and "love" in my stash.  The end result is this sweet ♥LOV…

A SN@P December Daily

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee! Isn't this just the greatest idea, ever?  (scrapbooking wise, anyway) Welcome to my contribution to the  SIMPLE STORIES  DECEMBER DAILY BLOG HOP I'm so glad that you're joining us...I can't wait to hop around myself and see how the girls have decorated their SN@P Albums December Daily style :)
**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
