Fancy Pants glitter cuts

I am a huge fan of the Fancy Pants glitter cuts! Sometimes, though, certain glitter colors don't work with a layout (although that is a very rare occurence for this glitter fan, lol). The glitter cuts are so versatile, though, that you can even turn them around like I did in this layout below. The silver glitter was too strong for my layout, but the black backside worked perfectly :-)

I also covered the pale pink Kraft Kuts letter stickers with orange ink and orange glitter. You can see more examples of how the Halloween glitter cuts are used on today's Fancy Pants blog post here.

There is also an exciting opportunity going on at AMM right now - we are looking for a Guest Designer for December! Here's what you have to do if you're interested in applying:
1. register on our boards at and become an active member; we want to get to know you
2. Post our A Million Memories blinkie on your blog and
3. In an email attach two layouts you think are your best work, a link to your blog and/or your gallery, and your contact information.

Please submit your application by November 15th to Jenn at

Good luck, everyone! I'd love to see one of my blog readers as December's guest!!

SO, one day and counting until Halloween! I'm not sure who is more excited - me or the kids, lol! We're going to do a group TOT in our n'hood, and then the Halloween party is back at our house afterwards - I can't wait! Just keep your fingers crossed that the rain stays away! Happy Halloween to those of you who celebrate it!
