Glitz Design: Sparkle & Shine

One of my favorite and most used scrapbooking supply today is stickers, which actually suprises me a bit since I had a sticker "phobia" when I first started scrapping.  Now though, I am always reaching for them, especially when a layout calls for some layering. 

One of the great things about Glitz, is that the products work very well together and I can create a unique look to my projects.  For Hello Summer, I grabbed the sticker sheets from "Brightside," "77," and "Felicity," along with the silver glitter washi tape and set out to create some dimension around my two photos with these embellishments.


I started out first with the silver glitter washi tape and lined up two pieces on a scrap paper before punching small hearts from it. 


When it comes to layering stickers and other embellishments I don't follow a specific technique, I just play around with them, tucking pieces here and there.  The only sort of rules that I follow is to make sure I have a variety in color, shape, and texture and to always include something in a neutral color.


Stickers can be a little bit tricky when it comes to moving them around and not having them stick to each other before.  To combat this, I will often stick them on my clothes first and pull them off a few times to get rid of some of the adhesive or I will add pop dots.  I can always apply glue or sew them down later. 


Wishing you a great Friday!
