Happy Friday, everyone! Welcome to our final day of featuring all the amazing things you can do with sequins. Our designers have certainly risen to the challenge, haven’t they?! I am SO impressed with their projects this week…but I think I say that every week. Ha!
Today we have two more layouts to share with you, and I had to pair them together because they just compliment each other perfectly.
Up first is this gorgeous layout that Stephanie did about herself. Look at how amazing the sequins look at the bottom of her photo, and then scattered about. SO pretty!
Here is a little bit of info from Stephanie about her layout, “I knew I wanted to use the quote “she who leaves a trail of glitter is never forgotten” and a picture of myself for the sequin challenge. Most of my layouts are about my two children, but I try to remember to document my own journey. For this layout, I decided to write little “reminders” to myself. I typed them directly onto my photo using my typewriter. I added the sequin border at the bottom of my picture because I felt it went perfectly with the quote and the small sequins scattered throughout the page were inspired by the quote itself (“a trail of glitter”).”

Up next is this layout by Noel with a gorgeous photo of her daughter. I love how she has scattered sequins about on her page…that is what drew me to pair these two layouts together.
Here is what Noel has to say about sequins, “I’m a little behind the trend curve and only have one small jar of sequins on hand, but with the variety of colors and sizes available, sequins are a fun (and inexpensive) way to add a little more sparkle to your projects. Here I layered them both above and below the Glitz Peek a Boos, as well as scattered across the page to draw the eyes.”
