Sparkle N Sprinkle's April 1st Reveal

Welcome to Sparkle N Sprinkle's
 April 1 New Reveal Blog Hop!

This month the Designers were asked to create projects with Want 2 Scrap chipboard products.  If you are able to visit any of the shows that SNS is participating in this year, you will notice SNS now has a larger booth.  Margaret and crew are sharing this new, larger space with Want 2 Scrap.  

We wanted to showcase various projects using both SNS products and W2S products together.  Hopefully, you'll see some new uses of these products that you may not have thought of before.  Chipboard can be used for more than scrapbook layouts or mini albums :-).  So sit back, enjoy the Hop and get ready to have those creative juices flowing!  

Be sure to visit the SNS Blog all month long for more projects and ideas that incorporate your favorite glitters, embossing powders, and more with the Want 2 Scrap chipboard.   

On April 3rd, ONE GRAND PRIZE WINNER will be selected from the comments left on the Designers' blogs listed below. Please leave a comment with each Designer in order to be eligible for the Grand Prize.  You never know who the Mystery Designer will be that has the winning comment.

The Grand Prize Winner, which will be announced on the SNS Facebook page and on the SNS Blog on April 4, will receive a $20 gift certificate to go shopping at the SNS Shoppe.

The Blog Hop order this month is:

Hi everyone hope you are enjoying the blog hop, there are a lot of wonderful project this month!!  

To start my project I embossed Want2Scrap Doily Chipboard using the clear embossing ink along with Super Thick White EP.  This was then heat set.

While the embossing powder was still hot I covered the doily with Exhilarated Glitter and heat set again.

I lightly applied Golden Sparkle EP at random while the glitter was still hot and heat set again. The step was repeated with Magic Speckle EP.  I really loved the end results.

The flourish chipboard was embossed using the same steps as the doily.

Using sticker paper along with Dreamweaver's Butterfly stencil, Coconut SoapSpirited Green, Ocean and Golden Silver glitter to create this sparkly butterfly.

Once all the chipboard had been prepared it was time to assemble my page.  The page base corners were punched using a Fisker corner punch.  Next the black cardstock was cut using my Silhouette.  The plaid DP was cut to 9 x 9.  Two strips of DP were cut for the banners.  The pieces were layered onto the page base.

The chipboard doily was adhered to the page, Want2Scrap pearls were added to the edge along with some Vellum Flowers.  

I added sparkle to the vellum flowers using a glue pen and Green Nugget glitter.  The small butterflies were die cut using a Stampin' Up die.  Opal Liquid Pearl was added to the centers of the flowers.

A piece of 3/4" Tear-ific Tape along with Parisian Mist glitter was used to create the ribbon.  I placed a piece of 1/2" Tear-ific Tape on the layout and then pleating the glittered ribbon on top.  It made such a pretty pleated ribbon on the page.  The sentiment is a Anna Griffin minc sentiment that I choose not to foil. 

Thanks so much for stopping by, have fun on the hop!!
