I Love KandCo Glitter Chipboard Letters!

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.

Hey redrhiannon,
Nice to see you out here not just on the forum boards.

I've been in love with that stamp for a couple of months. It's an Autumn Leaves Clear Stamp (Swirls V:I by rhonna farrer)
