Pure Silver Glass Glitter by Melissa Frances


Glass Glitter Accent Instructions:
  1. Enhance a vintage image with glass glitter by simple applying liquid glue around the edges of the image.
  2. Using a paper plate or piece of paper, lay your vintage image down and coat the edges with the glass glitter.
  3. Carefully pick up the image and shake off the excess glitter.
  4. Empty excess glitter back into your jar and use again and again.
Negative Pop Out Glitter Heart Instructions:
  1. A fun way to reuse the negative material from your chipboard sheet is to cut around the shape using sharp scissors.
  2. You can make the area as thin or thick as you'd like, remember that your cuts may not be perfect.
  3. Cover up imperfect cuts by lightly swiping your chipboard cut with distress ink to age your cut and make it look perfectly weathered.

Meet Chrys:

Happy New Year!!! My name is Chrys and I am thrilled to be a guest designer for Emma's Paperie! I've known Cindy for many years and am excited to be sharing with all of her customers some of my creations! I have been dabbling in paper crafts for a very long time, and have been working in the scrapbook industry for the last 5 years. I currently work for Boxer Scrapbook and for CupCards {to go}. I have had the pleasure of being featured many times over in several paper crafting magazines through the years. I have been married to my best friend Mark for almost 11 years and we have two boys, James and Andrew. A day does not go by that I am not creating, whether it's making a card, a mini book or layout, I also do needlework and quilting. Being creative is my passion both with paper and the needle. Thank you for having me be part of Emma's Paperie as a guest designer!
