  4. This Chat?s Theme:

    How can we add that extra little something that makes a layout shine? Maybe it is a little touch of shiny metal or a star glow or some golden glitter. Certainly, at this time of year, with the holidays approaching, is the perfect time for shine! For this chat and challenge, let?s explore the addition of glitter and shine on scrapbook pages.

    First, I want to point out that Katie has designed exciting new products in gold and silver, but, we?ll also take a look at other products in the store with shine!

    As you can see the addition of gold and silver sparkle can be subtle. It doesn?t have to reach out and hit you over the head to be noticed. In this layout example, the golden silhouette of the deer gently draws your eye to the silhouetted photos in the filmstrip on this exceptionally beautiful art journal page.

  7. Inspiration for this Challenge

    As I usually do as part of my preparation for a chat, I started a Pinterest Pinboard for inspiration. It is called Glittery Embellishments. Here?s the link:
    http://www.pinterest.com/digigrandma...mbellishments/

    This board is pinned with layout examples, Designer Digitals products and photos of things that are glittery and shiny. It?s meant to put you in the mood for thinking about glitter and shine on your scrapbook pages. It?s also meant to help you find DD products you can use to get that sparkle from glitter and shine.


    Of course, I?ll be linking you up with specific pages and products throughout the day. I hope you?ll return to this thread often!

  11. First of all, what adds shine on a layout?


    In addition to glitter, I'd like you to think about adding shine, too!

    I think we all know we like a layout to include texture to make it interesting. How many times do we think about adding shine? Maybe you think you have to wait for the holidays to use shine? I have only recently started thinking about adding little touches that shine to my layouts. I hope you get interested, too.

    Lately, I?m admiring layouts that make use of lens flares or star glows, no matter what the season or what the subject.

    Star glows and star overlays add shine
    Layout by Steph (Love This) uses star glows

  16. For a more subtle shine try overlays like this

  17. Sometimes, glitter is included in a complete scrapbook kit like the beautiful Winter Peony Scrapbooking Kit which Kelly used recently:

  19. Glitter Threads

    Have you tried using glittery threads?

    Here's a link to the gallery for Glitter threads products by Lynn and Katie:
    http://www.designerdigitals.com/digi...&x=-154&y=-168

    Layout by Anke using Glitter thread
    http://www.designerdigitals.com/digi...p?photo=131511

    The glitter threads make a super border and this layout is an example that it doesn?t have to be a holiday layout to add a little glitter.

    When we lived in Hawaii my girlfriends gave me some glitter snow one year for Christmas. They came to the door and when I opened it they threw it all over me. We found it for years!!! Digital glitter is easier to clean up!!

    I have never used glitter because I am afraid of how it might print. You ladies print lots of books -- how *does* it print?

    It prints great...I used a lot of glitter elements in my December Daily last year. If you would like to see it here is the link to my book and you can link up to the printed book on Shutterfly. http://www.designerdigitals.com/digi...y.php?cat=2442
