Purple & glitter & elegance said FASHION to me, so I had to use this kit for a layout about Emerson's many fashion choices.
I inked the edges of the layout with some Versamark embossing ink, and then used glitter embossing powder instead of just inking it with black ink. I was totally inspired by our own Katie and her mad embossing skillz.
The cute Hambly notebook that comes in the kit was perfect to make as a mini album for more pictures of Em. I'm just reinforcing the pages with some cardstock as I add them in. The whole notebook fits inside of the large pocket I made on the page with cardstock that has been adhered on three sides.
I used the same glitter embossing powder on the Heidi Swapp flourish stamp that came in one of the kits a few months ago. I LOVE how you can see the sparkle in the dark purple glitter cardstock that comes in the kit.
The American Crafts metallic silver pen is AWESOME for showing up on dark stuff. I love using it to go around the edges of elements I want to show up more. Those glitter brads are pretty cool too. ;)
