How To COLOR With Glitter

Today, I am going to share with you a very simple technique to create a stunning title (or two).  First, the scrapbook layout that I made:
Art Glitter Ultrafine Opaque 84 Shiney Si
Art Glitter Ultrafine Opaque 4 Berry
Art Glitter Ultrafine Opaque 56 Pumpkin
Art Glitter Ultrafine Opaque 62 Copper Canyon
Art Glitter Ultrafine Opaque 350 Butterscotch
Art Glitter Ultrafine Opaque 347 Golden Orange
Art Glitter Ultrafine Opaque 361 Cat Eyes
Art Glitter Ultrafine Opaque 358 Jungle
Art Glitter Ultrafine Opaque 48 Emerald
Art Glitter Ultrafine Opaque 233 Blue Hawaii
Art Glitter Ultrafine Opaque 32 True Blue
Art Glitter Ultrafine Opaque 30 Royale
Art Glitter Ultrafine Opaque 140 Canadian Blue
Art Glitter Ultrafine Opaque 256 Purple Passion
Art Glitter Designer Dries Clear With Fine Metal Tip
Xyron 510 With Permanent Adhesive
Digital Die Cut Machine (I used the Silhouette)
White Card Stock
Black Card Stock
You do NOT need to use as many or the same colors that I did.  In fact, a Rainbow Pee Wee Kit might just perfect for you!

I think the actual assembly of the page is pretty self explanatory.  This tutorial is just to tell you how to do the titles.
1)  Use your digital die cut machine to cut your titles from white card stock.  I used the Waltograph Font for the Disney title.  I used the Silhouette to auto trace the logo from World of Color.
2)  Put the title upside down in the Xyron machine.  Rub the clear side briskly and remove it.  The entire top of the title should be covered in sticky adhesive.
3)  Pour the silver glitter over the Disney title and rub in with your fingers a little.
4)  Flick off any excess glitter.
5)  Use the Designer Dries Clear and the fine metal tip to put a little glue in any missing spots and cover with glitter.
6)  For the World of Color logo, you will be creating a rainbow of color.  You will use two to three colors per letter.  Pour a very small stripe of Berry in just the left hand side of the W.
7)  Pour a small stripe of Pumpkin in the center of the W.
8)  Pour a small stripe of Copper Canyon on the right side of the W.
9)  Use your finger to blend the colors, pushing the outer colors in a little and the inner color out, until the letter is completely covered.
10)  Repeat steps 6 through 9, using the colors as they are listed for the rest of the title.  Each color on the right of one letter will also be on the left of the next.
11)  Run the titles right side up through the Xyron again to get adhesive on the back.
12)  For proper positioning, place the card stock that you cut from in the correct position.  Place the letters into the correct spots and then remove that card stock background.

So, here I am, signing off.  Before I do, I would like to invite you to check out my own blog at  I would also like to show you the left side of this layout one more time:
For those of you who know her, yes, that IS Kristi--our fearless leader!  So, I will leave you with that picture instead of my own today.  Until next time, Glitter On!
