it's all about the gold (and glitter, too!)

Have you noticed that gold is one of the latest trends out there?! It's not just in clothing and jewelry; it's also hit the craft industry. Thank goodness that this month's kit has its fair share of gold in the form of pretty glitter. To make things even better, there's a set of DIY Thickers from American Crafts, so it makes using glitter even easier. Basically, you pull back the top of each letter you want to use, expose an already sticky adhesive surface, and throw some glitter onto it!

Here's how I used glitter for my title, "Eureka":

My obligatory close up shot of my layout is below, hehe.

The neat thing about these letters is that it's not just limited to glitter. Feel free to use microbeads, tinsel, paper, etc. The sky's the limit with these DIY Thickers! Seriously, these letters are as good as gold, hehe.
