Fun techniques with glitter and tape. Our double side tape is perfect for utilizing glitter on your projects. You can use differing widths that are also perfect for attaching ribbon to paper. We have 1/8 inch, 1/4 inch and 1/2 inch widths available. click here for our adhesives and tapes
The glitter lines are created by attaching the glue tape to your decorative paper, then peel top layer of protective paper pour on glitter, burnish, brush and peel off more, add more glitter. Always burnish the glitter, pressing it into the glue tape to make sure it adheres, using a paint brush to remove excess glitter is a good idea. Always work on a surface that allows you to pour the glitter back into it's container, i.e. a piece of copier paper - fold in …
It's not too early to begin making Christmas ornaments to share and to keep. I love the look of handmade ornaments on a tree or as an embellishment on a special gift. This chipboard star ornament features an image from sheet #1862D - Very Vintage Santas. A watch crystal was attached over Santa's jolly face and large flake glitter surrounds the dome. Christmas ribbon was hot glued along the edges of the star and a dangling acrylic crystal adds a bit of sparkle. Yep, it's time to plan your ornaments now...Christmas will be here sooner than you think! ~Dianne

I find that yet again, I cannot make comments. I have yet to figure out the right combination of elements that do allow me to make comments. THEREFORE....
The necklace Gayle posted is gorgeous, the detail work is amazing. These stamps are small and lend themselves very well to dominoes. Gayle outdid herself again by showing her careful detailing talents.
I felt that the stamps could be great additions to ATC's as well. Nice little treats to tuck into secret places or use with our ATC Tin that comes with 20 blank cards. Our manila Tags would be a great use too.
Keep in mind the smaller stamps are only 1.00 each, sold in sets of 6 different images.
There is a fun swap in the Alteredpages Yahoo group. Our Swap Queen is Tolegranny and she is quite a force when it comes to getting us all involved and having a great time! Honestly, if I did not have her to instigate I would probably not have gotten this project done. My book is Memories of the 50's, a simple book, fun to remininsce. The prom date has a 3-D lace prom dress, as does the girdle advertisment. Foil tape and a cuttlebug was fun to incorporate. I used the accordion book which is available in our papers and books section on the website. My Mom's 50's kitchen counter had a similar pattern as the background on the Sputnik pages. This book has 5 interior and 5 exterior pages. click here to see more books.

Here are some ATC fridge magnets with Altered Pages beautiful women images. I have been working on them for my craft fairs. Each has an inspiration message. I am signed up for five fairs this year. I have been busy getting things organized.
I received an email from Sarah Murphy of DIY or Don't. She asked if I would consider becoming a member of her design team. I was of course honored. I will be submitting a tutorial project every month. I am going to have to put my thinking cap on!!!!
Have a nice week end ladies
I am so very happy and feel so nurtured today! I was invited to join the CIA (Collaborative Inspired Artists) It is a fluid group that meets monthly with artists of various disciplines. There was lots of collage, assemblage, some jewelry (WOW totally made from scratch metals and enamels, etc), some charcoal and painting.
I feel like a weight was lifted last night. I have struggled with who am I as an artist, what can I create? I feel that I have support to be critiqued and mentored in my quest to find who I really am artistically.
Thank you to those who invited me!
The work that was displayed was amazing. There is a show and tell each time. Zowie, I better get my game on! If you do not belong to a group, find one, it is such a grand experience.
