Crazy for Creative Memories and Cricut Blog Hop

Welcome to the last stop on the Crazy for Creative Memories and Cricut Blog Hop!  We hope you have enjoyed our projects and the Creative Memories and Cricut projects!
Art Glitter Ultrafine Metal Tip for Glue

One of the things Clare loves to do with her Cricut cuts, is embellish them with glitter.  By using the Art Glitter Ultrafine Glue tip (see photo below) and Designer dries clear glue, she gets a line of glitter as fine as a glue pen.  But the Art Glitter glue lasts so much longer and the tip can be unclogged with a pin if it dries.   Clare thinks glue pens just don't compare!  To embellish such a detailed cut, Clare applies the glue to one quarter of the motif at a time and then sprinkles the glitter.  She repeats the application of each quarter section, until the entire design is covered.  Below are photos of the doily before and after embellishment.
