Shimmer Sheetz The perfect art material.


Simply put, Shimmer Sheetz are an incredibly  versatile Art material.
.
Judi Kauffman has been designing with Shimmer Sheetz for several years.
We are so fortunate that Judi approached Els at Elizabeth Craft Designs with a
proposal to incorporate Shimmer Sheetz into her line of products.
Els immediately saw huge potential for the craft industry. Els called  me and said she
was placing an order. How many Sheetz did I want to order right then. (sight unseen of course) 
2200 Shimmer Sheetz arrived and I decided I better get busy.
(By the way, Paper Pastimes has sold several thousand Shimmer Sheetz in 4 years.)

I have experimented for hours! This is what I love about Shimmer Sheetz:
This material is light weight, flexible, durable and comes in exquisite colors.
Shimmer Sheetz will not rip, tear or breakdown if embossed, folded, sanded,
painted, distressed, punched or stitched. (I have done it all.)
Shimmer Sheetz are perfect for book covers, jewelry, childrens crafts,
scrapbooking, stamping, cardmaking,  mixed media and canvas work.
.
Embossing folders, alcohol inks (and mixatives), acrylic paints, Glossy Accents,
Stazon inks ( they are solvent and may lift some of the color off but that  looks
very cool too)  and sanding blocks are just a few of the supplies I find
work really well on Shimmer Sheetz. Play and find your favorites.
(PS: I just got the three brand new colors this week).
 Playtime for sure.  Take care, Carole
