Challenge 9 - Bling in the New Year!

December 31st, New Year's Eve. It's the night everyone dresses up & goes out on the town for an all-night celebration. Well, not me anymore because really, who can find a sitter? So, I figure if I can't wear something all sparkly and fancy for New Years, my layout can. My challenge is for you to add some bling. Something sparkly. Something glitzy. Something you'd like to take out on the town. A little or a lot - it's all up to you.

Just post your finished projects to this thread by Sunday, January 13, 2008. And I've got a RAK for the bling lover! Bazzill Bling, Doodlebug Sugarcoated paper, Hambly, Stickles, Prima paintable cardstock, some Making Memories Noteworthy things and more.

Here's what we've come up with for the challenge:


Deborah: I decided to use several different types of bling on my layout. I used Stickles to accent my patterned paper and diecut, crystals, a glitterly felt snowflake, and velvet Thickers. In addition, one of my patterned papers had glittered circles.


Becky used crystals in different colors and sizes to create frames around her layout, accent the flower, and for her title. She stamped the word "adore" on the background with white Staz-on ink.

Alicia added some bling in a swirl shape, which really matches her girly dress-up subject.


Jen did a mini-book for the challenge. The cover has a jeweled word from MAMBI. She also used crystals and glitter throughout the book. You can see the complete pages of the book below:

So let's see what you've got!

Who doesn't love a little Bling??!! Real/fake or supply wise! It's all good! :)

I used some bling photo corners, bling flower accents, the "happy birthday" are MM glitter stickers in black (hard to see in the scan) and the olive in my Celebratory Drink sticker is a red bling rhinestone. I also used some Crystal effect on the chipboard numbers after painting them HOT PINK!

Here's some bling used unexpectantly (for me) on a layout of my nephew. I used a sheet of MM scallop patterned paper, American Crafts felt flowers and a Heidi Swapp bling rhinestone square cut down to a small rectangle.

Here is my lo! The bling is a little hard to see in the photograph, but I used diamond glaze and glitter for the stars and the jolly roger and gems around the title and my sons bling that he is wearing and a little on the large monogram J. Also used silver string on the right hand side. Thanks for always inspiring us!
