Ok, I know that some of you have said you don't like working with loose glitter cause it's too messy.....I don't mind it actually...it is messy but I just keep cleaning wipes handy and use a craft tray

Anyway, one of my favourite things about this time of year is that I have an excuse to use lots of bling! I can use tons of glitter, glitter tape, foil, rhinestones etc...
My December Daily is going to be cream, red, silver (with some small touches of green) and I will definitely be using a lot of sparkles...
Bring on the Christmas Bling!!

What's your favourite thing about scrapping Christmas? Share examples of Bling or other things if you have them....
Weigh in on the bling.....

I love glitter around Christmas time too. I've always wanted to make glitter ornaments and this year I finally did with the Advantus Sulyn Vintage Sparkle glitter:

Those are beautiful Rebecca.


My favorite thing is old-fashioned or vintage Santas.
Guess I still believe.

I like to photograph my Trees and my village. My favorite bling is definitely glitter in all its forms and self adhesive rhinestones. I always have them in my stash.

Rebecca those ornaments came out great. I wanted to make christmas ornaments with the kids but I haven't gotten around to it yet. I love bling to but I am more of the rhinestone kind of bling!!

Is the glitter on those ornaments on the inside or outside?
I have glitter everywhere right now!

thanks everyone! the glitter is on the inside, which is awesome so it wont rub off and get everywhere I sprayed adhesive inside the bulbs and then dumped the glitter inside and rolled the bulb around until all sides were covered. After it was dry I dumped out whatever glitter hadnt stuck and put the hook caps back on and that was it! Very quick and easy, but with a fancy looking outcome

Very nice ornaments!!!!!
Those are awesome!!!!!
I just posted on my blog today about a snowflake ornaments that I did in my son's class this week:

http://3monkeysthrowingar oundsomepaper.blogspot.com/201...

I used rhinestones mostly to bling my samples because I am not a big glitter person. But when I went the class, the teacher had a glitter station set up for the kids. The kids could paint on glue and then sprinkle glitter all over the snowflakes. The kids loved it and they did look good!!! I loved the really flakey white glitter they used!!! maybe I need to open myself up to the glitter bug!!!!
