CTMH Technique Blog Hop - Glitter is Glamorous

Merry Christmas, stamping friend! Welcome to the CTMH Technique Blog Hop for December featuring all things glitter! 

I know you enjoyed your stop at Belinda McLane's blog which then brought you here. 

My glittery project is a Christmas scrapbook page using three different sets of dies--the Silver and Gold Cardmaking set, the bow Die, and of course, the Block Alphabet--all cut from the red glitter paper. Surely the holidays and glittery paper are a match made in glitter heaven! 

My quick tip for this project is this--if you are not someone who prints your photos at home (like me), you can use a piece of scratch paper cut to the size that your photo will be to stand in, while you are working on your page. See that green piece of paper? That's the stand in for my photo on this layout. I just use a tiny bit of adhesive to secure it in place while I'm working. Then when I have the photo, it's easy to pop out the temporary paper and permanently attach the actual photo.

Above shows the work in progress, with the photo popped in. I used a 6x8 photo on this page--I'm loving this size right now. 

Here's the finished page. The patterned papers and the journaling card are all from the Beary Christmas Workshop kit. 

Close to my Heart offers glitter paper in red, black, silver, gold, white and Bashful pink. It's a sturdy weight but still easy to die cut.

You will notice that I added the loopy bow to each ornament. I simply trimmed the legs off the bow die cut and glued the simple bow to each ornament. 

Glitter paper is so festive--I hope you will give it a try soon on a scrapbook page!
