Glitter styles and gel styles can be applied to elements to completely change their look. For example, you might just have a simple frame made of a rectangle with center cut out. You can then apply the style and it turns into an element matching the kit's color and style. Or apply a gel style to a simple circle shape, and you have an instant matching brad/button, great for using as an accent. Use a splat brush and add a glitter style to make a lovely background for a cluster.

Experiment with the styles and you'll love using them. Sometimes you have to tweak them to fit the particular element and your layout. If you have Photoshop, it's easy to install the styles. With Elements, a bit harder. PSP I don't know about. There are some explanations on installing styles on our forum, so do a search for them. If all else fails, check the online help or Google for a tut. If you want to know how to install a style in Photoshop, just ask. I can tell you how. Others know how Elements and PSP works. Someone will be able to help with your situation.

I adore digital glitter! Not too much of a fan in the real world, though...

My daughter adores glitter. She gets it everywhere. It doesn't bother me so much because my husband thinks all the glitter is from her, and not from my projects! The best is when he has glitter on his face or in his hair. Sometimes we wait a while to tell him :) lol
