I love the glitter chipboard alphabets from K&Co! But despite loving them to death I can't spend my entire weekly scrap budget on just one item. So I haven't bought any! I'm hoping to get some for my birthday though....take note DH...lol
Anyway to get around this dilema I make my own. KMart has just increased the range of scrapbooking supplies they stock, much to my and my best scrapbuddies' delight! So I purchased a set of 5 glitter pots for $3 and make my own chipboard letters. Here are two layouts I just completed using my glitter chipboard letters and using my new Autumn Leaves stamps which are FABULOUS! I splashed out on these. As they needed a week and a half of my usual scrapbooking budget but I couldn't wait any longer.
I recently got these photos from another mum who took these shots of my kids at her sons' birthday party and I thought they were great shots! They're not the traditional smiling faces but in a way they are truer to my kids personalities. I immediately new I wanted to use a plain backdrop and the autumn leaves stamps to embellish around the photos. I used a little patterned paper on my son's layout but only chalk on my daughters' to frame the picture.
I cut the chipboard lettes out of the back of an old notebook and then painted them with a base coat of paint as close to the colour of the glitter as possible. When this was dry I painted dimensional magic on the letter and then covered it in glitter. When this layer was dry I added more dimensional magic to the top to 'hold' the glitter on.
