I signed up for a Glitz & Glamor Swap and decided to use some of my new toys er tools and create a blank book.The sparkle doesn't show up well in this photo.
I began by spraying blue card stock with Blueberry Shake by Memory Mists, then with Shimmering Mist Guatemalan Green & Shimmering Mist Gold. This gave the card stock lots of Shimmer.
I cut the card stock down to two 5" squares and ran them through the Cuttlebug using the Swirls embossing folder.
I ran a Pearlescent Sky Blue Brilliance Ink pad over the top of the swirls and randomly inked some areas with a Galaxy Gold Brilliance Ink pad. I used these papers to be the outer covers over 4" squares of thin cardboard.
I had some shimmery metallic confetti paper, which I used to make the inside covers and the pages of the book. I stamped a saying on the inside cover with the Pearlescent Sky Blue Brilliance Ink pad.
I had a piece of glossy cardstock that I'd sprayed earlier with the Shimmering Mists and made a small square frame out of that after running it through the same swirl embossing folder. I found a gold star fish embellishment, some pretty ribbons and some glittering paper beads to complete the front. I used my new Zutter to bind the book together, that was very easy to use.
