Sequins: From Shakers to Confetti

Hi Everyone, Kathy today with a couple of projects featuring Doodlebug's Sequins!  These sequins are just FABULOUS!  They come in 12 different color assortments!  Each jar contains multiple shades of each color!  This lets you coordinate with absolutely any Doodlebug collection!  There are so many ways to use sequins on your projects.  For my first project, I used the Bumblebee and Tangerine Sequins to fill a shaker-shape.  Take a peek...

This picture is from a recent photo session with my daughter.  I love how the sun created some spots on the picture!  I used my cameo to cut this sun shape from some Bumblebee dot/grid Petite Prints paper..  I covered the center opening with some clear plastic I cut from a page protector.  This holds the sequins inside and allows them to move around.

I also sprinkled some sequins around my layout for some more sparkle factor.  I've found the best way to attach sequins to your project is to use Glossy Accents.  It dries clear, and they don't move or fall off!!  Just be sure to have patience and let them dry for a few minutes before moving on!

For my next project, I used the some Ladybug, Beetle and Bumblebee Sequins as "confetti" on my layout.  Take a peek...

LOVE this picture of my daughter and her good friend at Disney World last summer.  They had such a fun time meeting and greeting all the characters!  Again, I used some Glossy Accents to adhere the sequins to my layout.  I thought the confetti was a fun addition to the Sprinkles Vellum Mouse Balloons I designed!
Here are some more close-ups of my layout...I used goodies from a number of Doodlebug collections to put it together (listed below).  That is one of my favorite things about Doodlebug...everything coordinates!
As a fun extra, I'd like to share the Mouse Balloon cut file I created!  You can download it here! (file is in Studio3 format)  I hope you enjoy!  That's it for me today.  Make sure to check the Doodlebug blog each day to get more design team inspiration!  Thanks for stopping by!
