Sparkle and Shine!

This is the first layout in a series of three that my customers created during my Stamp N' Scrap class last week.  If you'd like more information on my monthly scrapbook class CLICK HERE

Here are a few tips to making this layout.  1) I used the Illuminate Glimmer pad to stamp the silvery-looking images you see.  Don't over thing this when you stamp. Just stamp one every inch then fill in with the other image. Anything that overlaps looks great because of the iridescent color of this ink.  2) I used several rhinestones to highlight the ornament centers which brought continuity to the strips of silver glimmer paper.  3) The coordinating framelits making cutting out the ornaments so easy! 4) I used my silver marker to create the 'strings' for the ornaments. 5) If you look closely I stamped the words 'merry' along the bottom edge of the Bashful Blue cardstock on the left hand side as well as across the white journaling box on the right.
