    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?

  12. 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!

    Layout by Kelly
    Be Still

    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.

  13. Morning all! A long time ago, at the cottage, my sister's kids were given a craft kit containing glitter. After a couple of accidents, my mother banned it's use. The girls really needed to finish something, so they snuck the project and the glitter into the outhouse. Let's just say that the outhouse sparkled for a very long time!

  18. 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!

    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

    I'm not a glitter person and am always afraid to add it. But I do like touches of it - so maybe this will get me out of my comfort zone! Getting ready to bling!

    Good morning! Sounds like a fun challenge! As an elementary teacher, now retired, I can tell you custodians were not fans of glitter in our classrooms. LOL! But that didn't stop our use of the fun stuff!

  27. I love your inspiration board

  28. So, I'll give you a little time here to get the link, check out my Pinterest board and check out Joanne's Shutterfly link.

    I'll be back often with more inspiring layouts and glitter and shine products from the DD store throughout the day.
