Now, onto my projects!

Firstly, here's what I created with the beautiful Craft-A-Flower: Daffodil Layering Die Set...

Oh how pretty!!! 
Those Daffodils are just divine! 

Sigh! Talk about show stopping! 
The Craft-A-Flower dies are always so intricately and expertly layered to ensure that you achieve realistic looking blooms each and every time you create! 
How amazing is the sparkly daffodil crafted from the Gilded and Forest Canopy Glitter Cardstock Sets?! Gorgeous!

Love it! 
Everything's always better in glitter!!! 
And with this in mind, here's what I have created with the awesome new glitter cardstock sets...

"Kisses" - 12x12inch scrapbook layout

Swoon! Better in glitter, indeed!
This is soooooo pretty! 

Let's take a closer look...

Nawww! Happiness is here! 
So many beautiful details! 
How stunning is that Pink Brilliance Glitter Cardstock  kisses title?! 
It's die cut from the awesome Fancy Kisses Die, and really pops! Love it!

You'll spy that I die cut two of the swirls from the Decorative Swirls Die Set in the elegant Dazzling Diamond Glitter Cardstock and combined them to form a heart shaped frame around my treasured photograph.  The Dazzling Diamond heart frame looks amazing, and even better, it draws you into my sweet photograph instead of distracting from it! Sparkles are always for the win!

I couldn't resist die cutting the fabulous foliage pieces from the Decorative Swirls Die Set as well! I used a mix of all the tones featured in the Pink Brilliance Glitter Cardstock Set and honestly, I couldn't love the result more! SO stunning!!!

Really beautiful!
And the best part? 
The Glitter Cardstock Sets have been expertly designed to glide through your die cutting machines and cut like butter! Such a dream to craft with! 

I hope my layout really inspired you!

Oh, and here's a few more of my recent projects featuring the Glitter Cardstock Sets, because you can never have too much glitter, right?! 

The Pink Brilliance Glitter Cardstock Set is clearly a fave of mine! 
How fabulous does it look teamed up with the Bold Heels Stamp & Die Set?

But I also created this same card in blue...

I think you'll agree that the Ocean Reflection Glitter Cardstock is just stunning!!!
And I couldn't forget to feature the brilliant Forest Canopy Glitter Cardstock Set either - check out that sparkling title below...

I think it's safe to say that the Glitter Cardstock Sets are my new fave Altenew products! 
Need these pretties too?

I really hope my projects have inspired you today! 
Please remember to leave a comment on this post to be entered into the giveaway, and Good Luck! 

Time to send you hopping over to one of my most admired creatives in the industry, the incredibly beautiful Erum Tasneem. Her projects will have you swooning!
