Frosty Festivities Christmas & Winter, Scrapbook Layouts

A Challenge – To add Glitter or Shimmer!

(This post is part of my Frosty Festivities Blog Event)

It’s in the sparkle of frost, the twinkle of fairy lights, and the glitter on baubles. So now I challenge you to add some shimmer to a project – go crazy with it!

I think by now everyone knows that my favourite way to add sparkle is with gems and pearls, and this layout is no exception:
The journaling reads:
‘We went for a family walk at Upton Country Park, and it was so super frosty! The leaves crunched underfoot, and the pond was iced over really thickly. We dried dropping stones on the icy pond to break it, but they just skidded across it to the far shore. It all felt like a magical other world.’
I used a mix of Crate Paper’s Sleigh Ride and Acorn Avenue collections, I love the stripy Thickers:

The gems are a mix of Papermania, Hero Arts, and Kaiser Scrapbook. They shimmer nicely, and with the pale leaves from Acorn Avenue, they set the scene very well:

Be Inspired:
  • Add lots of shimmer, glitter, or sparkle 
  • Mix two collections from the same manufacturer
  • Place all your details in a central square panel
So now it’s your turn!
To enter this challenge: make a craft project and add lots of Glitter or Shimmer (your favourite kind), blog about your project (or upload it to an online gallery), and link back to this post. Then come back here to link your project up! You can combine this with other challenges.
The challenge will close next Sunday, 25th November at 10.59pm GMT. All the challenges are open Internationally.

The winner will receive a mystery pack of papercraft supplies! I’m not sure what will be in it yet, but it will definitely include some shimmmer – there will be a whole pack of these in there:

And lots of other stuff too!

Don’t forget that a comment on this post, or on any of my posts from this weekend, will count as an entry into the Grand Giveaway {NOW CLOSED} but challenge still open!– but only if you’ve registered your interest in winning that here!
The event is nearly over – two posts to go! The penultimate one will appear soon! x

  1. Oooh I have finally caught up with all the festive blog posts and wow they have been fantastic! I am not a very sparkly or glittery person so this is a great challenge for me and I would love to try and copy some of your amazing techniques…. I am hoping my mojo is kicking into gear and I might be scrapping again this week!


  2. Great layout and great excuse for more sparkles! I’m really glad we have until next weekend – our visitors have only just left so I didn’t get any workroom time today – but we had a lovely time and I never need to eat again! :o)
