Hey crafty friends! So excited to be joining the hop this month with my bling beach scrapbook layout.
To create this layout I started with a VERY old (3 years to be exact) kit from My Creative Scrapbook as well as a few bits and pieces from my very first The Secret Not Secret Kit Club kit. I combined them to create a bling beach scrapbook layout featuring both our son and daughter.
I used a bubble die cut that came in my kit and filled it in with patterned paper from the other kit. The circles helped as you could embellish each one individually to add to the whole design. For some I went plain and for others I layered it up. I also did some with just a dashed line so it was interesting, but didn’t really cause any distraction to the rest of the elements.
Now I know what you’re thinking…where’s the bling!? It is harder to see in the large photo so I took a few close ups for you. The first place I added some sparkle was in the lower left cluster of embellishments. Stickles to the sea shell and pineapple were the perfect thing.
I also used a clear wink of stella pen in the upper left corner on the ampersand. I like the clear wink of stella the best since it doesn’t alter the color of the item I’m using it on. I have several other colors, but they never seem to match the piece I want to sparkle up so clear is my most used. I also inked this with a slightly different aqua than the rest of the page to try and make it pop just a bit.
I hope you enjoy my creation and what the other ladies have created. Make sure to hop on over and see what they’ve done!

On the first Wednesday of each month, a group of DIY and crafty bloggers join forces to bring you the #BlingontheCrafts blog hop. Each blogger creates a glittery, sparkly, shiny, shimmery, sequined, or “blingy” craft to share that goes with a monthly theme.
May’s theme is summer. Each blogger chooses their own craft to make as long as it shines and is summer themed.
If you’d like to participate next month, you can request to join our Bling on the Crafts Facebook group. Next month’s theme is patriotic!
Now let’s see all of those glittery, shiny, sparkly, or blinged out crafts!

That is such a beautiful scrapbook page. I love having little 3-d embellishments like that all sparkly and fun. Pinned
Thank you Joanne – I think having some flat and some 3-d embellishments make the page so interesting too.
