Spooky with a little Bling!

   These are the spooky layouts I created with the October Book Table club kit.  I know I have mentioned this before but I duplicate layouts for each of my kids' albums and for the family album (one of the duplicates is pictured at the bottom of this post).  It is always a good feeling to get those duplicates done! I also, when working with the Book Table kit try to use something I already have. (I don't buy any extra).  So for these layouts I was able to use my new Cuttlebug and one of the embossing folders for the black photo mats. I also cut out the very cute spiderweb and the title with my wishblade (something I have had for a couple of years and don't feel like I use enough).
  I also wanted to try a technique out that I had seen on another consultant's blog.  I wanted to add a little sparkle to my layout.  It was easy as candy corn and the best way I have found to add prisma glitter to specific areas.  This is what I did: I used some of my new favorite glue; Close To My Heart's Bonding Memory Glue Pen on the letters.  Then I just sprinkled it with Close To My Heart's prisma glitter and I was done! How easy was that!  If you were covering larger areas I would use the bonding memory glue with the wider tip. I have loved the glue pen for adding little thin pieces of cardstock to my projects like the spider web and title.  Can you just see the possibilities of how easy it would be to add prisma glitter to all of your projects including Christmas ornaments, a stamped crown, candles of a birthday cake or stars just to name a few.  The bonding memory glue and prisma glitter can all be purchased on my website
