We've made the perfect glitter cardstock hybrid with American Crafts' new POW! Micro Glitter Paper. Made with a brilliant sparkle that never (ever!) rubs off the sheet and a thin, easily manipulated material, this cardstock can even be run smoothly through die-cutting machines. We're excited to share with you what our talented team members have created with this new amazing product. Today Jen Jockisch and Jenny Chesnick have created a collection of fun sparkly projects:

Jen notes, "My blog assignment this month was to work with the POW! glitter papers. After playing with them a little, I realized that they were thin enough to be run through my Silhouette, so I cut a background and some butterflies and used those as the main base for my layout and used a leftover butterfly for my card. These papers are so much fun and add tons of sparkle. I especially love that you can use them with the Silhouette, usually glitter cardstock is way too thick to cut but these work beautifully!"

Jenny exclaims, "When I saw the POW! papers live and in person I knew I needed to make something sparkly for the summer holidays. I searched my local craft store for wood pieces to layer together to make my own custom door hanging. I used floral wire to connect my pieces all together."
