Everything Is Better with Glimmer

by ktstamps, 4:16 AM

Do you love little treats? Who doesn’t??!! These little packages were so easy to create using the Sweetheart Treats Bags. It doesn’t matter what you put inside because the packaging is so cute!

So simple, yet SUPER cute!!

I love Valentine’s Day!  I love the hearts, love notes, smooching, sweet candy, chocolate. . . .  Oh, I LOVE it all! You know what else I love?





Whenever I’m creating anything, I always take a step back, take a good look, and think, “What’s missing?” What is always missing? Something shiny!

My go-to product to solve all sparkly problems is the Glimmer Paper. Any color will do. Don’t have the right color? Just spritz it or use a Sponge Dauber to get the colors you need.


(I used sizes 3 and 4 of the Hearts Collection Framelits.)


Don’t forget to add some shimmer.


Oh, and cut extra little hearts on your e-cutter because they’re SO cute!!

Craft on!

Which Dies are Steel Rule Dies?

Originals, ,
- These steel ruled dies cut through virtually any material and multiple sheets of card stock and Designer Series paper.

Sizzlets dies- These dies are small and detailed, often creating scored or perforated details. These dies cut through thin materials, and multiple sheets are not recommended.

spiral flower die  Make your own 3-D flowers, perfect every time! Use the Spiral Flower Originals die to cut a scalloped spiral, roll it up, and there you have it–instant flower! Use with the Big Shot and Standard Cutting Pads.

Check out the video below and see how it’s done. Paper flowers are beautiful but cutting them by hand is tedious, especially if you’re making a bunch. Now you can cut a flower in seconds with the Spiral Flower Originals Die and Big Shot. And you can cut multiple sheets at one time or use different materials. After the flowers are cut, just roll and adhere. Make one, make a ton—either way, you’ll be done in no time!
