3 Glitz Layouts Class! This class was all fun and games!!! Happy Clear Acrylic Album Class! More fun and laughs!
While in Texas we made lots of new friends! Some projects talented ladies made with Glitz products could not be ignored…so I wanted to share them here:
Below is Katherine who made the coolest ATC card using our digital elements. She shrunk everything tiny to make this cute card..the little birdie is popped out and there’s bling on the front!
Jessica Colby made this fabulous layout below using our bold paper Rhapsody! Also below you will see layouts from Toni Boucha and Carrie Sheldon using other fabulous Glitz products!!
I am sure that I am not the only one out there who lives on a budget, and who likes to get the biggest bang for my buck….right? Well, Glitz makes it EASY for even the most frugal to enjoy paper crafting by offering their Digital/Printable Kits. I am an AVID card maker, and the Create A Card and Create A Card Vol. 2 disks are a MUST HAVE in any collection. You can print each image over and over again. Not to mention…the disks are just FULL of great digital images and papers to use!
They are really easy to use too! First, just make a new image at the size you want your card to be in the photo software of your preference (I use Adobe Photoshop…but you can use any type!). Then open the images you want from either of the Create A Card disks, and resize them to meet your needs. After that just drag, drop and move, or copy, paste and move the images around until they are right where you want them on the card.
After that, you are ready to print! Be sure to set your print quality to high, and check your fit to scale button so it will print perfectly. I prefer to use white Bazzill cardstock in the orange peel texture for printing…the colors come out nice and bright!
Once you have printed out the hybrid part of the card, it is time to embellish it with those true paper scrapping items that you love! I am a Glitz girl through and through…so adding some glitter and bling is a must on any project I do! On this specific card I used the fabulous Glitz Frosting and Icing!
Once you are done embellishing your cards, you can go ahead and score it and fold it in half!
And viola…your card is done! You have a fabulous card that was easy to do, didn’t cost a lot of money, and you can do it all over again if you want! Here are few cards that I got done with both of my Create A Card disks. The options are endless when you are using the Glitz digital/printable kits! Hope you enjoy using them!
Everyone have a wonderful rest of your week, and weekend!
At first glance you may not see the Rhapsody collection as your first pick for Halloween pictures, but the colors work fabulous!!!
I did this layout of my youngest two in their halloween costumes last year, I just love how it turns out!
The bold bright colors really pop when paired with black cardstock, give it a try!
I used the awesome – go on like butter- rubons for this card! The already embellished chipboard makes a perfect embellishment!!
Thanks so much for looking!!

who do you love?
super fun glitz stuff at work
I set out to make a project with some of the very cool new Glitz products. I love making mini albums and this little black board book was calling my name. I thought it would work perfectly with all of the fun bright colors of Glitzy goodness. There are so many great ways to use these products… so I decided to list just a few fun ways with each of the pictures of the album.
First off, I have to say how much I’m in love with these new rub-ons! Did you know the black on these rub-ons is a shiny black… like patten leather shoes shiny black? It is so fun! I have grand plans for using these extra large rub-ons on layouts… I seriously can’t wait!
Another super cool Glitz addition… ROLLER DOODLES!!! These are a blast. I wish the picture showed it off better, but I rolled the flower Roller Doodle in VersaMark ink then heat embossed it with clear embossing powder right onto the cover of the mini album. It was a really fun way to add that little something extra without distracting from the main focus. Here’s a little tip if you’re looking to cover a background with lots of doodle-ie fun… instead of rolling in horizontal or vertical direction, try rolling onto your paper on the diagonal. It’s a lot harder to tell if your lines are straight or wobbly if it’s rolled on the diagonal!
Another thing I love about Glitz… their digital elements. They coordinate and enhance their paper products perfectly. On this page (and the cover) I took the damask print you probably recognize from the ultra chic Hot Mama line, converted it to blue in Photoshop, and printed it right onto some pearlescent paper. The result, is full of shiny chic fun!
Oh the happy thoughts that come to mind when someone says frosting. The chocolate gooey sugar shock version makes my pants feel tighter… but the Glitz has the only ZERO CALORIE option out there! I love how the frosting is mold-able into any shape. Here it’s formed into a circle. No more sadness over being out of that perfect sized or shape bling element… we’ve gone D.I.Y.!
Fun with Frosting words & journaling blocks! When your DIY letter molding skills are taking a break… grab the Frosting words. They’re in cute fonts that make adding a title to your projects so easy. Glitz journaling blocks are so fun… and totally not limited to just journaling. They work great as layers, accents and elements! Add the Frosting circles and some rub-ons and you’re golden!
The owl paper was made using another Glitz digital element printed on pearlescent paper.
Arrows, flourishes and words… OH MY! Arrows are fun… arrows are even more fun when they are swirly. Like all of the Frosting these have the same flexible nature that allows you to make them work for your project, and yet they’ll hold their shape when you pull them off their backing. Truly the best of both worlds.
My favorite flourishes… they make my heart all melty. These were cut down from their original size to work as an accent with the flower. Can you spot the roller doodle appearance on this page? There will be another picture of it up close coming up…
This page has it all… Frosting, printed digi elements, Roller Doodles, Frosting words, fabulous Glitz paper… I love it when a plan comes together! (For all you A-Team fans out there.)
The last page of this little mini book… some more fun with arrows and rub-ons. The grid rub-on was cut down from it’s original, as was the flourish. The flower was punched so the cute little strawberry would be right in the center of the flower.
A close up of how you can shape the frosting into your own custom arrangements. The 5 is stamped with the Roller Doodle and punched out to show my little sweetie’s age at the time. The stitched swirly line is a Glitz rub-on.
Getting up close and personal with a punched out Roller Doodle 3, a Frosting circle, some rub-on dotties and a journaling block.
Another close up… showing off the cool Glitz flourish and grid rub-ons. Not to mention the cool black pearl circle.
And that’s a wrap! If you have any questions about any of the products or techniques, please leave a comment. I’ll be glad to answer! Thanks for putting up with a silly girl who has clearly not had enough coffee yet this morning!
Have a great day!!!
