Bling it Up

Doesn't every girl love a little sparkle in her life. I know I sure do. Today I thought I would show you how adding a little bling to your projects can bring them to life. Creative Charms offers several different self adhesive rhinestone gems and brads to spark your creative spirit.
Hello Card Before

Hello Card After

(Supplied Used: Bazzill Cardstock, Patterned Paper American Crafts, Sticker Alphas Jillibean Soup, Pink Gem Stickers Creative Charms, Ribbon Stampin Up and misc eyelet)
I simply added a bit of sparkle to the greeting. Think of how easily this idea could be translated to just about any project. You could easily add a little bling to the title of your next layout for the same effect.

Peace Out Card Before

Peace Out Card After

(Supplies Used: Bazzill Cardstock, American Crafts Thickers, Little Yellow Bicycle Peace Accent & Pink Gem Stickers Creative Charms)
In this card I simply scattered the bling in a left to right pattern from the top of the card to the bottom. This gives the card movement and flow and of course a little sparkle too.

Hugs Card Before

Hugs Card After

(Supplies Used: Bazzill/Jillibean Soup Kraft Cardstock, American Crafts Thickers, Stamp from Stampin Up, Versafine Black Ink & Amber Gem Stickers Creative Charms)
I thought these stamped flowers needed a little some extra and the rhinestones were the perfect addition to take this super simple card from flab to fab.
Think of all the other goodies that can be blinged up with Creative Charms Gem Stickers. Like rubons and die cuts. Next time you are scrapbooking think about adding a little sparkle to your next project. Have a GREAT DAY!
