Technique: Sparkling Bloomers - To add some pizazz to this page, I added glitter to the tips of the bloomers. Here's how I did it.

Cut apart the bloomers. Lightly paint Mod Podge on the tips.

Sprinkle the glitter into a tray. Turn the bloomer over and dip into the glitter. Shake off the excess.

To create layout:

1. Cut green paper, adhere border of paper and clear sticker. Round corners and adhere to cardstock.

2. Cut cream paper panel, use border punch on bottom edge. Add two die cut papers to top.
3. Apply doily rubon to top right hand corner and layer cream panel over it.

4. Add photo and die cuts. Adhere stickers and gems to one and write journaling on other.

5. Create four triangle pieces for banner. Add glitter to letters and adhere to banner pieces.

5. Add banner pieces with foam adhesive.

6. Adhere strip of fabric ribbon to top. Add glittered bloomers.

Guest Designer, Cherry Nelson

We'd like to welcome Cherry Nelson as a Guest Designer for Emma's! Meet Cherry below and check out her adorable projects using products from the store.

Meet Cherry:

I have had a fascination with paper and scissors from an early age..use to cut out little paper villages and I adored paper dolls (still do)! About three years ago I started scrapbooking to preserve memories of my son and our family. In the last year I have found I really enjoy making cards and love to alter found items and make them my own. Paper is my passion and is theraputic to my soul. I enjoy the whole process of creating...from found items, finding that perfect paper, to the embellishments. It makes me happy!"
