Hi there friends! Don't you love it when what you have been working on perfectly ties in with something you needed to do anyways? I made this project last week but saved it because its just right for this week's challenge at Heart2Heart Challenges - All that Glitters! Make sure you get to the bottom of this post because I have a PRIZE for you this week!
As I mentioned a couple of posts ago, my little crickey bug and my Artiste Cartridge got a SERIOUS work out when I was prepping for my daughter's 17th birthday party. I made ALL the decorations, all the party favors, party hats, treats and just about anything else I could think of with paper, glue, a serious amount of glitter and a ton of love. I poured a lot of creativity into the party which helped keep the cash flow down (funny how that works hunh?).
This is one of the party favors that I made with the girls so it did double duty - it was an activity to do plus the girls took theirs home to remember the day.
Here is my glittery part - I cut all the crowns from our new Silver Glitter paper! Wowzer! I'm a big fan of our Silver Glitz Gel and have used it to cover a lot of stuff but this paper tops even the Glitz for shimmer and shine. Its shimmers like a thousand diamonds and cuts like butter with the Cricut!
Add a couple of rolled roses with a few dollops of Glitz in the centers.
I stamped the acrylic photo cover with our Archival Black Ink using one of the stamps from Whoo's Your Valentine. There is another clear cover on the back that I stamped with another saying so the girls can switch the photo caption out. I found these frames at Ikea a couple of weeks ago for just .99 cents each!
Can you guess what the theme of the party was?
Leave a comment and tell me your guess! I'll be sharing the full party later this week and I'll pick a random winner from the comments on this post! The prize is a flat pack of all the elements you need to decorate your own picture frame - one crown, the leaves and roses plus a fabulous zebra bow! (US/Can only please)
So leave a comment and then head on over to Heart2HeartChallenges.blogspot.com and see what glittery goodies the rest of the Design Team has for you and then put a little sparkle in your life by getting YOUR glitter on for this week's challenge!
