The Story of Guesting for American Crafts!

Ok, so this is where my scrapping journey reaches an even higher pinnacle. Being a Guest Designer for American Crafts?! A great big YES and a whoooo hooo! And where it gets even better is that American Crafts is celebrating glitter week.. and you all know how much I love glitter!! It's like they knew I was coming and planned accordingly ;-)


Here's a sneak of each of the projects you're going to see over on my guest post. I ended up with 2 layouts, a card, a mini-album and a home-decor item. That's what happens when inspiration hits... a great big whirlwind of creativity hit my scraproom and I didn't stop until I was done!


I absolutely loved creating with the Dear Lizzy Polka Dot Party, and Amy Tangerine Cut & Paste that I received. It's much easier to work glitter into your projects than you imagine. And it doesn't have to be as 'messy' as the layout above. Here I let the wet glue run down the page and then sprinkled loose glitter all over it (and myself, and everything else in sight). It was so worth it though, that sunflower yellow is the best!



The first sneak, the scripted 'she' uses a similar technique of painting on glue and then sprinkling glitter. I love it because of it's vibrancy. But if you're not into mess, then consider trying Zazz glitter glue instead, like I've used on the cutlery set above.
 

A little messy just because it's wet, but if you're careful about not smearing it you won't need to worry about having to clean up at the end. My card (above) is a little hard to see from this angle, but I've used Pow Glitter paper, while the mini-album below uses the Glitter Tape.


So if you're interested in seeing all my complete projects, pop on over to the American Crafts blog and say hello. There's a chance to win your own truck-load of glittery products on this post too. And stay tuned for more glittery inspiration from the team over the coming week, they're sure not to disappoint ;-)

Happy Scrapping,
