Splendor with BLING!

It's the MOST splendid season - PERFECT for adding a little bling!

Somethin' about the COLORS of Fall, in my neck of the woods...

EVERYTHING looks terrific in fall colors... So WHY not up the beauty...


Yes, please! I did! - I will continue to do so! I LOVE doin' it,
and SO... WILL ... YOU!

Look at this GORGEOUS image and sentiment from Simple Stories!
We were given these incredible paper kits recently, to pair with Want2Scrap™
products - and HONEY, BABIES, SWEETHEARTS! WHAT a stunning combo!

As IFFFFF! This artwork wasn't breathtaking enough...
Look what some brilliant Nestabling™ petite circles
can do to the SUN!
{Lesson here - Nestabling™ NESTS with all kinds of things!}

On the opposing page, a tree sticker from the Simple Stories™
100 Days of Summer collection, skillfully covers a smallish
family friend who dove into our "family portrait" moment,
and the addition of self adhesive green bling from the 72 ct.
{Yeowza! This stuff is sooooo versatile!} REALLY
ups the juice factor on this little scene! {LOVE that green!}

Bling can perk up SO many {already!} beautiful materials!

Here's another stellar graphic from the Simple Stories collection:
although the set is intended for summer, I easily transitioned
many of the images into fall, with a few stamps and coordinating

But when I say COORDINATING... I'm kind of breaking out
of the "matchy-matchy" coordinating concept, and leaping
towards the use of COMPLIMENTARY bling..... {*swoon!*}

How can these colors NOT make you want to smile?
YUM! Like pumpkin bread baking in your oven on
a leisurely Sunday morning - these colors ARE fall,
where I come from! I had so much fun enhancing
these images just-a-lil-bit! But just LOOK:

Check out a fabulous a line of silver rhinestone bling
from our Nestabling™ Pennant collection! If you are a
Pennant phobe - and you SWEAR you'd never make one...

That's okay, you can STILL play with us! I hoard... ur, uh,
I mean - I COLLECT these babies and use them quite often
for straight lines of bling! They are HUGELY versatile in
that regard, plus they come in MANY fantastic colors! If
you've never really contemplated them, I hope you'll take
another look! Want2Scrap™ Nestabling Pennant bling
is GREAT for pretty much EVERYTHING!

Here's another SUN with just a lil' more sparkle thanks
to a single bauble from a left-over Gold, Petite Scallop
Nestabling™ Circle
... An adorable stamp and THAT
sparkling jewel and THIS postcard that was once all
about summer.... Now shines like a fine autumn day!

This baby went from {stunning!} summer, to fall in a snap!

Oh, the places BLING can take us! Isn't is AMAZING!?!

Start with this...

Bling it OUT - to THIS!

So much fun! On this festive bingo sheet, I merely covered
the center piece with this pumpkin I stamped onto a scrap
of paper from this very collection, fussy cut and glued it
right THAR in the center! You'd probably never have
guessed it didn't come that way... There's just something
about staking a claim on CREATIVE material!

More pumpkins to decorate the spine of this delightful
chipboard album from EcoGreen Crafts!

I used some LOVELY paint from Eco Green Crafts
to custom paint the letters on the cover of my book,
as well! I swear, I need EVERY color they make!
It's GREAT stuff!

As you can see, very little bling was spared for the creation of
this sparkly seasonal album. I promise, it didn't feel any pain...
AND MAN, does it SHINE! {!} Gosh, I love sharing my love for
Want2Scrap™ and cross promotional products with you! I hope
you enjoyed my tips for BLINGIN' out your goodies - May YOU
find SPLENDOR in your craft! ENJOY!
