Special Anniversary

I'm so glad Sparkle N Sprinkle is having us give Scrapbook pages a try!  Don't worry, I'm going back to cards next post, but this occasion is just perfect for a scrapbook page.  I may even frame it and give it to my parents as a present.  I can't believe they have been married 65 years and still both doing so well!

Most of the elements on the page have been cut with my Silhouette and embossed with embossing powders, Cappuccino Star, Silver Bells, and Hit the Beach.  It gives the page much more dimension than a pre-glittered scrapbook page.

Here are some closeups.  The tiny hearts and butterflies were punched out of sticker paper glittered with Golden Silver glitter (as was the lettering that was cut with the Silhouette).

The larger butterflies (Stamp set 437 - Fancy Butterflies) were embossed with Gold Detail and glittered with Silver Dreams. Yes, I have glitter EVERYWHERE  in my craft area, but it was well worth it.

Of course, it sparkles much better in real life.  Glitters are hard to capture in photos, especially the golds and silvers!

You can find complete directions on the Sparkle and Sprinkle website here!


  1. What a beautiful tribute!!! What a great job on your first scrapbook try!

  2. Gerlinde this is absolutely gorgeous! I am sure your parents will be so pleased to see it and the glitter is the perfect touch!

  3. What a lovely layout. I am sure your parents will cherish this project. You've done a beautiful job of celebrating their union together. And the L/O is perfect.

  4. What a gorgeous page to celebrate such a great occasion. Love how you added the swirls and glitter, giving it so much sparkle and dimension. Beautiful!!!

  5. Great page, Gerlinde! I especially like the numbers and letters that you cut out and glittered - who said you couldn't do scrapbook pages - this is wonderful!
