Adding Some Sparkle To Your Albums








I was so excited to be asked to join the Midnight Oil Scrapbook Designs team! I can't wait to get to play with these products and next month I will show you what I've been up to. A little about me.... I have been married for 14 years and have two children Parker 8 and Emma 6. As they get older I seem to spend more and more of my time in my "sweet" minivan running them to various activities. My daughter has inherited my creative bug and I couldn't be more excited. I have been scrapbooking for a few years and it all started when I mentioned to my husband I wanted to try scrapbooking - so he bought me an album and a pack of 12x12 paper for my birthday. Well a few years and an embarassing amount of supplies later, I think he's regretting that original gift! Speaking of birthdays today is my birthday! I'm guessing he won't be getting something scrappy this year...lol... We added onto our house recently and I even got a bigger scrap room out of the deal. Now I just need to get the thing organized. I love products, I just don't seem to be very good at putting them away. I love to create all kinds of projects and have been published in magazines such as Paper Crafts, CARDS, Scrapbook Trends, Memory Makers and others.

I thought today I'd share an acrylic album I created last month. I have become a big fan of glitter and I wanted to add some to this project. I took my glue pad and ran it over the acrylic piece of petal on each page and covered with fine glitter. I only covered one side of the petal as the glitter still shows through to the other side. I also like to use Modge Podge to apply glitter, but on the acrylic I thought the glue pad helped to apply the glitter more evenly. I also added touches of glitter to the papers and chipboard by using a glue pen. I love glitter - it just keeps your face sparkly for days!
