Product Spotlight: Fancy Pants Glitter Cuts

This weeks Product Spotlight is on Fancy Pants Glitter Cuts. These versatile transparent embellishments come in a wide variety of styles and sizes, from large frames which take up most of the page, to borders, titles and smaller embellishments.

The stars along the bottom of this layout provided a little added interest to the area in the bottom of the layout whilst by their transparent nature still allowing me to keep the yellow background showing to tie the top and bottom of the layout together.

In this layout by Karen Leahy she has used a large Fancy Pants Glitter Cuts floral flourish to embellish the whole side of her page. She has then mirrored the colour scheme of the blue flowers in her added 3D flowers but also introduced the yellow to marry together the glitter cut design with her sunny yellow and orange papers.

The Precious Title is a Glitter Cut in this layout by Suzanne Torr. She has added the swirls to it for additional emphasis but the title was just made for this photo and layout.

Joanne Friend really used the Glitter Cuts title "This Boy" perfectly in this layout overlaying it on the photo of her son. Because they are transparencies and therefore have no white edges this technique lets you really make use of the "white" or empty space in your photos and brings all the attention straight onto the picture.

All our Glitter Cuts can be found HERE in our Transparencies & Sheer Sheets section. They range from 85p - £1.85 so represent a reasonably priced way to add the wow factor to your layouts.
