Scrapbooking with Shimmerz

You remember I mentioned that it was National Scrapbooking Day in the USA and that Shimmerz Paints is celebrating it with challenges and prizes? Well, I thought I would do a scrapbook page to celebrate too. I've used my Shimmerz and Blingz around the edges (Angel Wings and Under The Sea), on the paper wave (Under The Sea, Sky Blue and Angel…

More Notebooks

I'm obviously in a notebook frame of mind at the moment so here is another one for you. Inspired by the lovely acetate-covered notebook Wendy had on her blog Paper Therapy a few days ago, I thought I would do my own take with some stamping and painting onto acetate. I also wanted to try out my fabulous new Shimmerz Paints so…
