Glittery Titles

I've been scrapping a few of my holiday photos and using these beautiful papers by TPC Studio called Sweet Christmas. The collection comes with an alphabet sticker sheet. The letters in the alphabet are larger than the average alpha sticker (about 1 3/4 inch tall) I decided to make some of my own smaller glitter alpha stickers to use along with them on my title.
First, I cut my title using the Cricut cartridge Learning Curve at 1 inch tall.
Then, I mixed about 1 teaspoon of Aleen's Tacky Glue with a few tablespoons of water and stirred it up really good (I used an old prescription bottle to mix the glue and water). Using a paint brush I covered each letter and then dipped the letter into some Martha Stewart fine red glitter.
 I let the letters dry and then I took the same watered down glue and painted over the glitter letters one more time. This helped to seal in the glitter to keep it from getting all over the place.
After my letters dried, I attached them to my layout with Scotch Quick Dry liquid glue

I love the glittery effect and they go so nicely with the alpha stickers that came with the paper!!

I hope you liked this quick tip and thanks for stopping by!!
