Happy Tuesday, everyone!! As you know…we are all about the sequins this week. Our designers have completely risen to the challenge, and today I have two more projects to share with you from Karola & Karine.
Up first is a beauty of a card from Karola…check out how she created a shaker of fabulous pink sequins!! Totally LOVING this!
Here is a small “how to” from Karola, “Today’s project is a card with perhaps a little forgotten accent: a shaker box. When I heard that one of our topics this month was sequins – I immediately thought of sequins placed in a small shaker box and arranged on a greeting card. I made this card for my friend, so I decided to combine pink and beige from the Uncharted Waters line with dramatic B&W chevron washi tape from Cashmere Dame,and of course the beautiful title from the Hello Friend collection….
I wanted to create an interesting palette of colors here, thanks to the combination of different materials with various Glitz Design collections – it’s very easy. My box in which I added sequins originally were package of ribbons – surely you can find this kind of boxes in your craft room. I covered the box with washi tape, added one of Hello Friend – Title Stickers and finally poured inside a handful of pink sequins and glued so that the box was kept closed. I love the effect when sequins rattling inside the box and sparkles beautifully in different shades! Sequins are very trendy now and are also a great addition in glamour style, so I encourage you to use sequins with Glitz products in projects for your girlfriends, sisters, and for your Moms!”

Up next is Karine, with this sweetheart of a layout!
Here is what Karine has to say about sequins, ” Sequins are really trendy nowadays; they are like little jewels on our scrapbooking pages! This challenge was an opportunity to use pictures starring my niece Noélie, who is so very girly! A skirt that twirls, fuchsia pink colour and sequins: we are definitely talking girls here!
Once my page done, I had fun adding little heart-shaped & round-shaped sequins here and there. They are stapled directly on my layout; I even stapled some on my pictures! The extra sequins are inserted in a small transparent envelop which will serve as shaker box. The envelop is glued under one of the three pictures.
When I saw these golden sequins, it came to me that I could emboss two arrows. They are stamped on a white paper then embossed with golden powder. Then they are cut out and used as accents. I hope this layout gave you some ideas on how to use sequins on a page!”
