Make Your Own . . . .

We all love the look that epoxy stickers give to our layouts & cards, but using them all the time can get expensive.

So today's Shoppe tip might help get you the same great effect while saving you some $ . . .
We'll show you how to make your own!

Here is your secret weapon . . . . It's called "Aleene's Paper Glaze"

You can use this on ready-to-go flat printed stickers to give them some depth & dimension or try it like we did with punched paper pieces to perfectly match your layout.

Just squeeze it out onto your chosen item, then let it dry & harden . . .
(drying time depends on how thick you coat your pieces)

On this "Cute as a Button" page, we coated simple circles and then punched holes thru it to resemble matching buttons . . . .

This product is also WONDERFUL to use on beach & pool party themes or on bathtime pages . . . It leaves a "wet" look on water splashes & bubbles!

Or you can use it to just highlight certain features here & there, like we did on this wedding layout . . .

So grab yourself a bottle of this handy-dandy stuff and make your own expensive-looking embellies!

Soon you'll be adding a touch of glaze to glimmer up whatever you're working on . . . .
