If you have just hopped onto my blog, you can start here as this is a circular hop, but if you want to follow us across Canada then please start at the beginning and join Michelle at My Creations with Michelle. If you came from Krista of Home with StudioK then you are in the right place!

As most of you know my very favorite go to product for finishing off a project has been Glitz Glitter Gel in all it's wonderful colours because seriously glitter makes almost anything better! So I will admit to being very anxious when it was retired with the last Idea Book.  WHAT will I do now?  What if I run out??  I am very happy to have a (ahem, horde),stash of several bottles which should see me through the next decade or so but the question became "What do I replace it with for my clients who want glitter but do not own glitter glitz gel?" The Answer? Shimmer Trim!  

It is a great product to work with and comes in 5 yard or 4.5 meter rolls.  The current colour choices are Black, Silver, Red, Bronze, Teal and Purple.  It is Adhesive-backed and that is my only complaint with this product, it can be a little difficult to get the clear protective plastic off the back it's like trying to find the end of a tape roll you know it's there..  But I have found if you "flick" a corner with your thumbnail it catches and once started comes off easily.

For these two cards, in addition to the shimmer trim, I used for the card above Babycakes paper, the super fun Scallop Border Punch and the sentiment is from the Cricut Artiste Collection.  

The card to the left is from January's Cloud Nine Cardmaking Kit which also features another of my very favorite products WASHI!!!!  Close To My Heart now has eight different Washi designs and they are so much fun to play with.

Your next stop on the Cross Canada Hop is Kathy of It's a Girl Thing!  If you get lost along the way, you can head to Michelle's Blog, My Creations with Michelle, as she has the complete blog list. 

Thanks for hopping along with us - we hope we were able to inspire you to get creative using some of the designs, products and techniques seen along the way. Join us again in March when we will be featuring card boxes. We hope you will join us again on March 15th, 2014.

Happy Crafting!
