Very recently a local Arizona couple and a pilot were in a terrible plane crash. The couple suffered severe burns and the pilot passed away. We have not been able to stop thinking about this family and following their story. Design Mom has declared today Nie Nie Day! She is hosting a silent auction in honor of Stephanie Nielson and her husband Christian. All proceeds are going to the Stephanie and Christian fund. One of our designers Lyndsay Johnson together with her friends have created a beautiful website for the recovery of the Nielsons. Please check it out to learn more about this story and what you can do to help…..at Nie Recovery. Our hearts, thoughts and prayers go out to their families.
for fall friends
How is it that it is nearly fall? This time of year is filled with lots of new activities… school, sports and parties. Not to mention the holidays just around the corner. It’s great to have a quick project to put together for those fall get togethers.
1 each Glitz Gigi Birds and Gigi Trees patterned paper
Glitz Small Round Pink Frosting Strip
Glitz Large Round Clear Frosting Strip
Glitz Feathered Jouranl Rub ons
Chipboard flower, purple cardstock, hole punch, purple ink
To make this project, you’ll want a decent sized chipboard shape. I used a single page I took from a chipboard album. To cover the album, I cover the chipboard in adhesive and stick it right to the back of the Gigi cardstock, then cut around it with my craft knife. With the patterned paper already attached to the chipboard, you don’t have to worry about it slipping around when you’re cutting.
To give the flower a little more dimension, I inked the edges with a coordinating ink color. I then cut the photo and cardstock mat into circles and adhered them to the flower with foam tape to make them pop. Shape Glitz frosting around the photo to add another layer of dimension. To bring out the cute purple polka dots on the Gigi paper, I punched small circles from purple cardstock, and put them around my photo.
I then cut some flowers and a birdie our of a scrap of my Gigi patterned papers. They layered over my photo with foam tape. To finish it off I added three individual frosting rhinestones, and a Glitz rub on.
With just your basic supplies and some Glitzy goodness, you’ve got a great little gift!
