The Flock Takes Flights - Sparkle N Sprinkle

Hi Everyone,, We are almost to Christmas!! 
Our family is having our Christmas today, because my 
DD2 is moving to Alaska and she leaves on Christmas Day!

My layout today is using Sparkle N Sprinkle products- have you tried 
their Microfine Glitter and Embossing Powders yet???
They are AWESOME!!
I have used Basic Grey papers- they are an assortment of lines here,
some I have had forever! 
For the flowers I used Brushable Glue and covered with Starfire Glitter. I used Flourishes 1 to create 
my pattern on the pink paper here. 

I used Tear-iffic-Tape on several layers of the papers to add 
glittered stripes. Seriously- this tape is one of the best things ever! Simply apply the tape where
you want some sparkle, peel of the protective backing and burnish with glitter. Easy peasy!

Here I used two different widths of Tear-iffic-Tape to create two glittered stripes.
For the ribbon, I started with a plain fabric ribbon and stamped my sentiment
directly onto it. This is a super easy way to get custom ribbons.

Here is a closer look at my heat embossed background. I used Princess Rose EP and
VersaMark ink for this. 

Here is another great way to use Tear-ific-Tape- I applied it to the edge of
my paper strip, used a border punch on it, peeled of the protective backing
and then burnished with glitter. To finish up my layout, I used my machine
to sew around the outside edge, then doodled with a white pen. This layout has a lot of layers
on it, but I can still fit it in a page protector because it is not too bulky.
Bulky has been a problem for me of late ;o)

Here are a couple of quick projects I made this month
My annual Brunch invitations - I wanted to jazz them up a little bit, so I
added a bit of sparkle using Tear-iffic-Tape and Glitter, so easy!

I wanted to dress up a plain Jane candle, so I started by stamping some simple background images
using StazOn inks. I applied 2 1/2" Tear-iffic-Tape to a piece of cardstock, and
border punched both edges. I removed the paper backing, added a piece of
patterned paper down the center (this was tricky, I admit) and then burnished the bare edges
with my glitter.
I used Tear-iffic-Tape and scrap pieces of cardstock, punched my stars,
removed the paper backing and added glitter.
