I was finally able to get the second part of my glitter tutorial edited and up on you tube. Personally, I prefer the heat and stick powder, but I think the option in this second video is a great idea for beginners since it requires so little investment in new supplies. I also use it in places that I could get my Versa Mark stamp pad. Give it a watch and let me know what you think!
I recently made two scrapbook pages using glitter, and each page used a different technique. A few friends asked me to do a tutorial on how I did each one, and I was more than happy to comply. Below is part one. This requires more tools that part two, but is very simple. I’ll try to get part two up tomorrow. I’d also love to hear what you use glitter on.
Gosh am I striking out on the book front lately! This is the third book in a row that I’ve read and been underwhelmed with. I really enjoyed the first book in the series, and liked the second one well enough, but the third fell flat.
For starters I was really looking forward to seeing what happened with the ghost Lizzy, but WOW did it get weird. When the ghost started appearing in physical form to people and the ghost of her lover invaded Ryder….just to much for me. I read plenty of para-normal things, but this was just so out of place for this genre of book. The three main girlfriends actually planned time to sit and hang out with the ghost…yup…lost me!
I also didn’t feel the chemistry between Hope and Ryder the way I did between say Beckett and Clare or Owen and Avery. You knew they were going to get together going into it, but I don’t think the author did a good job making it believable.
I’ve heard some good things about her others series so I will give them a try since I liked books one and two, but up next is a genre switch for me hoping I break this dislike rut.
What are you reading lately? Leave me a comment…I’d love to hear.
If you’ve been following my blog you’ve seen my review of the first two books in this series. The recap: loved the first – didn’t care for the second. I went into the third hoping the author was going to redeem the trilogy and tie up all the loose ends in the third…no suck luck 🙁
For me, the book moved way to slow for the fact that, just like in the second, nothing really happened until the very end. By the time something did happen I was so over the main characters that I couldn’t dig up enough emotion to care what finally happened to them.
We also got very little closure on the Isabel and Cole scene too. It seemed like both characters grew up in the third book and became real people, but then Cole’s actions at the very very end made him seem like the same self-centered jerk all over again.
I also may be over critical on this point again, but I also really didn’t like the red font. Other than going with the dust jacket I don’t really see the point of changing the color and straining your eyes for so long.
Long and short…read the first and skip the other two.
I always like the name brand perfume, but thought $60 per bottle – Yikes! I then went and bought Bath and Body Works thinking the $10 or $12 products were saving me money. After they discontinued my favorite scents, yet again, I gave it some thought. Was I really saving any money??
