********************Hello! Shellye bringing you a cool, sweet treat and just in time for Summer.
When I first laid eyes on the Sweetness Collection I knew that I wanted to create an ice cream cone shaped mini album; I found the perfect shape on the Cricut "A Child's Year" Cartridge. To begin I cut a brown cardstock at the 11" setting and then cut the inner (patterned) papers to 10". A good thing to remember (if you're using a Cricut for this) is to 'flip' the second image so that it mirrors the front page exactly. Here's a look at the mini all put together:
I was so excited to work with Art Glitter's beautiful products for the first time; I think it really added to the charm of this whimsical album.
As you can see, on the cover I added one of the transparent glitters from the "Butterfly Collection" to the frame and then Pink Pony Glass Beads to the ice cream soda :) A little darker glitter decorated the cherry on top!
On this page I cut the sentiment from the Enhancement paper and added some older Authentique sentiment stickers. The heart is a wood veneer that I simply covered in glitter.
The Components punch-out pieces come in so handy...here I added the 'sweetness' punch-out with a dish of ice cream that I hand-cut from one of the Enhancement cards. Using the metal tip and Designer Adhesive from Art Glitter made adding glitter to the different pieces easy.
Yep, you can glitter over foam stickers! After I applied the Designer Adhesive to the letters, I used my finger to smooth out the glue evenly and then sprinkled on the glitter.
More of the Components Die-Cuts and cute embellishments completed the final pages of the album. The Designer Adhesive dries very quickly so there's no need to wait long before adding to your page and moving on to the next.
I hope that you enjoyed this project of Sweetness mixed with Art Glitter...it was surely fun to put together!
