Shimmer Glimmer Sparkle and Shine Blog Hop!

Welcome! Today we celebrate the launch of the newest CD from the Technique Junkie Newsletter: Shimmer Glimmer Sparkle and Shine! If you came here from Nancy Dawson's blog, you have arrived at the last stop. I hope you loved what you saw! If I am your first stop, take a moment to stop at the TJ Design Team Blog to start the hop.

The Shimmer Glimmer Sparkle and Shine CD contains 40 tutorials and 5 primers featuring techniques using glitter, glimmer mists, foils, stickles and all things that shine and shimmer. I partnered with the fabulous Jane Bosi to create the CD -- Jane not only is a great designer, but she has wonderfully creative ideas and she writes a mean tutorial! We all benefit from her creative muse on this CD.


I chose to make two glitter techniques today. I wanted to make a few things that I didn't get a chance to make samples for when we were preparing the CD, so I chose two from designer Jane Bosi. The first one uses the Glitter Strips Technique:

 I just received this fun kit from Club Stamp today and I couldn't resist this fun set of sayings!  Don't you just love the inside sentiment?

The second card I made for this hop uses the Lacy Glitter Leafing Technique, again using the Club Stamp Kit:



 I hope this hop has helped you get an idea of some of the cool techniques on the CD. A full index of what is on it, with pictures for each of the techniques, can be found HERE.

The CD is $14.95 and can be ordered here:

Select One or More CDs to add to your order


In addition,  we are giving away a CD today too! To qualify, make sure to leave a comment on each of the hop pages -- and I will select a winner on Monday, February 28th. Good luck!
