Everything ABC's Blog Hop - Letter G

Welcome to the Everything ABC's Blog Hop!

For this hop we will be featuring the letter "G". This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment. Whatever the crafter has chosen as their "G" element will be featured in their post.  If you came from Darlys Recker at Crafty Happy, then you're on the right track!

I used to not be much of a sparkle/glitter person.  However, in the last year or so, I've realized that almost every project I make has some sparkle or glitter on it!  My first thought for the letter "G"was Glitter!  Close to My Heart has several options when it comes to adding Glitter to projects.  From Glitter Paper (6 different color packs - 18 choices total), shimmer trim (10 different colors), and Glitter Gems to the myriad of other sparkly bling, the options were almost endless! 
CTMH's glitter paper was the focus of my projects.  It is very thick, but still cuts nicely with my cricut using a normal blade (though I do use the highest pressure setting).  The "Celebrate" was cut from Green Glitter paper using the Artbooking cartridge.  The "Thank You" was cut from Gold Glitter Paper using the Artiste cartridge.

Both cuts were mounted on White Daisy cardstock, trimmed with shimmer trim (in Gold and Blue, respectively), matted with black cardstock and mounted on the black and white chevron paper found in the Paper Fundamentals Basics Pack  I can't wait to send these sparkly cards out to someone special!!!!

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you enjoyed my "G" creation.  Here is a list of Close to my Heart supplies used for these card:
