and here are some close ups of my project and TIP&TRICKS on how i did it:

use GLITTER PASTE and a stickable stencil to create the shimmering layer on the pattern paper.

using the foil transfer sheets, add cheerful phrases to your project.


TIP! before adhering the fussy cut images, emboss them slightly using a ball stylus and adhere them with mounting foam tape.


add pearls and swirls to decorate your project.



for my title i used a chipboard phrase from DUSTY ATTIC. i covered the chippie with embossing ink and then a layer of STAMPENDOUS! embossing enamel and heat embossed the set.
