For my first project, I decided to highlight one of my all time favorite embellishment options - bling strips - for a sparkly final page in my 2016 album.
Here are my 5 ideas for using bling strips:
1. Frame a whole project with full strips.
I used Jewel Bling in Champagne and Pink. Each strip is long enough for a 12x12, with some length to spare for later use!
2. Use a piece of bling to make your own embellishment.
I made the "X" on my title card.
3. Use a piece of Bling Strip to frame a main page element.
I chose to frame my 5x7 picture with the same champagne color I used on the page frame.
4. Coordinate a bling strip with a Fancy Bling Strip to make a fuller frame.
The champagne color was a perfect match! And one strip was the perfect length to cut in half and frame the top and bottom of the picture.
5. Scatter individual pieces around the page.
Mixed with a variety of enamel dots, glitter dots, mini brads (like the tiny butterflies I used here), and ink, I like the added sparkle the little pieces bring to the page. You can cut the pieces from the strip, but I tend to just pinch a piece from the end, and the sticky back comes with it. No extra glue needed.
I am trying to get into the habit of making a couple of quick cards with any leftover bits and pieces after I make a page. These two "Hello" note cards came together quickly with my leftover paper bits and embellishments.
