Why doesn't the sparkle show...?

Grr! I can't understand why stickles and sparkles and stuff don't show up on layouts or cards that you've scanned - or even photographed really. Anyone feel my pain here?

The layout below has sparkle letters for the title - completely glittery irl... here you can't even see that. And all my stickles and liquid pearls get lost too. Ah well. If anyone knows the secret pls let me know. Faffing with elements is not my fave thing, but worth it if it works, I guess.

Sollo, Izzy and Matilda, baking up a storm for Father Christmas!
Love mattie's sneaky scoff of the sticky, and how cute does she look in that chef's hat!

All digi elements from Kate Hadfields Jingle all the way

There's a slightly different version of this uploaded on mojoholder, because I changed my mind after i'd put it into photobucket. I wasn't that happy with it, but just wanted to get it up before the deadline, so don't think it's your eyes... it's not - it's me! lol!

And a quick card for Amy on Scrapfreak - hope you had a good day! :-)

ok, got some jobs to do so I better get on, have a good day all!

Hi jakey! You have a super cute blog! Love the creations you've just posted. I feel your pain about the scanning and glitter relationship. I have a hard time with that, too. Don't really have any words of wisdom in that department. lol

I really love the theme of this layout. I always remember baking with my Grandma at Christmas, stirring the pudding mix & making a big wish.
I also find stickles don't show up very well. I made a card using a treescape stamp & applied stickles to look like it was frosty & it didn't really work on the blog at all, very annoying because the texture is awesome. I want me some Rangers distress powders & stickles.

I am glad its not just me who has this problem - I had assumed it was because of my limitations as a photographer!

Love the lay out :-)

The layout is beautiful, but I can't get glitter to show up either.

I know what you mean about the sparkle-I just did a lovely white LO-all sparkles and glitz irl and very flat and plain onscreen.
I've left you a blog award on my blog-I hope you'll come by and collect it!
