Vintage Style Love with Danni Reid

every time i start a new set of cards, i get carried away just looking at all the glitz loveliness in my package. i pull it all out, every time, and ooh & ahh
over it, from all the vintage goodness to the chic & fun papers, swoooon!
i have created 2 new cards today using the newest papers & embellies from glitz. i wanted to share a site, Frantic Stamper, where i have personally shopped on-line, and
she carries a large array of the glitz products. i do not have a
local lss so i have had to find a couple of really good on-line stores & i love her selection glitz products. i have only shopped
once so far, but it was a great experience.

Kismet Connection with Sasha Halloway

…so often I find it fun to either mix papers together or just work with in the natural range that they come in. So this time for you coming out the gates I wanted to use only the new Kismet Collection before mixing things up.

I love this line because the reds are rich but mute, and the blues are popping but subtle as well. I decided to take the photo and change it to a pencil sketch so that it flows with the papers.  I have also made a few pinwheels from the collection as well.

 If you want to add other dimension or elements to your pages and you still want to focus on the paper then take your punches, grab and old book and start punching away. I am a fan of butterflys.

 I used the following papers and elements.

Teeny Alpha – Brown Block, Frosting – Black, Whatnots – Vintage, Kismet paper – Ledger K2860, Kismet paper – Numbers K2242, Kismet paper – Stripe K2211

Enjoy your day and see you next month as I dibble in dabble in a little bit more of my style with paper mixing.

You Make Me Smile with Tracie Hudson

As a Mom of two teenage boys I’m always searching for scrapbooking papers that I can use to create pages for their albums, so when a box of Glitz product landed on my doorstep, I literally jumped with joy.

The Distressed Couture range from Glitz was just simply perfect for this photograph of my youngest boy, J.

To begin creating my page I machine stitched two sheets of the patterned paper together to form the base. Whilst my sewing machine was handy, I created a stitched frame around the photograph by machine stitching the photograph to the patterned paper photo mat.

One of my biggest fears is sticking something down only to decide 2 minutes later that it needs to go elsewhere!! By sticking the accent stickers to cardstock and then cutting them out means that I could move the accents around the page before finally securing things down! I used 3d foam pads to secure the title and heart accents to the page as this gave my page a greater sense of dimension.

Glitz produce amazing “Glitzers” page accents which I think are a fantastic embellishments to play with. I layered up one of the “Glitzers” with one of the accent stickers to create a funky scalloped heart accent for the page.
The black spotted background was created using one of Glitz “Polka Dot” rubons, which was applied to white cardstock before being adhered to the page. I used one of the bar code accent stickers to let my boy know how much I love him – he really does make me smile.

The black round “Teeny Alpha’s” have to be one of my favourite teeny alphas ever – they are so versatile and are the perfect size for scrapbook pages, as well as adding text to cards or other paper crafting projects.
I used numerals from Glitz “Save the Date” stamps to create the number 14, as well as using the smaller stamps from the same set to create the date stamp – the photograph was taken on my boys 14th Birthday :D

To complete the page I added one of the Glitz Journaling stickers to the top right hand side of the page and embellished further using cardstock stickers, “Glitzers” and a little Glitz “Frosting”.

Visit Lealholm with Michelle Jackson-Mogford


I recently took a trip to my parents house in North Yorkshire where I grew up and managed to take my camera out and take a few trips down memory lane. Lealholm is a small village in the middle of the moors and is somewhere I spent a lot of my time as a little girl. It’s ‘oldy wordly’ and has changed little over time so I wanted to reflect that in my layout. The Vintage Love line from Glitz designs was the perfect choice for my project with a few glitzy exras thrown in for good measure!

Before I meander through my creative process I’ll share with you my Glitzy shopping list:
Vintage love patterned papers; Velvet, Stripe, Damask, Polka
Vintage Love compass stamp
Vintage Love accents and stickers
Vintage Whatnots
Vintage paper layers
Teeny Alphas Brown Round
Paisley Flourish rub ons
Winged rub ons
I’ve added a few extras here and there from my own stash too.

I started by selecting my photos … tough call as there were many :) and chose to convert 3 small photos into sepia leaving my main large photo in colour. I further distressed the photos with my trusty nail file and Vintage photo distress ink.

My base was the velvet paper, and I think it really does look like velvet! I love the fact that the Glitz papers are double sided and always try to show a little of the flip side if I can. I distressed the edges and stitched the frame with my sewing machine, a little distress ink took the white cotton down in colour and turning the page corner revealed the gorgeous pattern on the other side.

Taking a strip of the damask paper, and with a little more distressing :) I started to build up the layout background with the compass stamp and paper layers.

The polka paper made a perfect mat for my main photo. After the edges were distressed and inked I curled the edges of the paper up and inwards to create a strong focal point on the layout.

Now, I love detail, so I punched the sides of the Notes page from the pack of Whatnots as I knew I would use it for my journalling, what I didn’t know was you wouldn’t be able to see the detail once the layout was assembled LOL But I know it’s there and thought it was a fun detail to share with you for future reference.

I started to piece the layout together and had to stop myself from using all the yummy elements I had out! I tend to be a more is more girl when it comes to my pages but even I have a limit LOL. It was at this point I realised my small photos needed a lift so I added them to some mats made from the stripe paper, distressed of course!

The Glitz paper layers are great fun and so different to anything out there, I used one page and cut the carnation from it making it into an embellishment and used a ripped piece of the text under the photo on the left side. A winged rub on added to some acetate and cut out, a card stock sticker distressed, a grunge board flourish inked, some lace and prima flowers created the rest of my embellishments.

And the finishing touches were an oversized paper clip I found on the floor in a car park ages ago! (washed of course :))

A small piece of a paisley rub on to the top left of the Damask strip and the oh so cute Glitz Teeny Alphas for my title.

I love dimension on my pages and lots of detail…

and I {vintage} love my page of happy memories.

Thanks for taking this Glitzy trip with me and I hope you feel inspired to have a play with some Vintage love … it is oh so yummy!

Until soon
Happy Crafting

A little bit of this….with Courtney Baker

There are so many Glitz products that I love, that I honestly didn’t know where to turn for my first time to post of the Glitz blog. I decided that rather than spending hours weeding through all the things I love, I’d go with the first two inspiration pieces. It’s funny because my two inspirations resulted in two completely different styles of cards. I just love when products can push your creativity!

The first card all started with Maya Floral from the Maya collection. The paper is just gorgeous. I used one of the flowers from the patterned paper to create my focal point:

Patterned Paper: Maya Floral, Maya Navy (Glitz Design)
Rhinestones: Pink Frosting (Glitz Design)
Stamp: I’m Feeling (Glitz Design)
Ribbon: Navy (Offray)
Ink: Viridian Leaf (Palette)
Thread: White (Coats & Clarks)

I love that little “I’m Feeling” stamp. I stamped off once to give it a little “worn” effect.

On my second card, I went with one of my favorite color schemes…  neutral! These vintage Whatnots, are SOOO cute and perfect for card marking.

And don’t you love when this don’t go the way you planned, but you end up loving it? Do you see the stitching on the top right? Well that was not suppose to end. My thread in my bobbin however did end. Once I realized I was no longer sewing… I realized I liked the effect on this vintage card.

Patterned Paper: Vintage Love Polka (Glitz Design)
Accesories: Vintage Whatnots (Glitz Design)
Ribbon: Netting (May Arts); Black Crepe Paper
Thread: Coats & Clark

Do you have a project that didn’t turn out the way you planned, but you ended up liking it better?

What is love? with Lisa Andrews

When I pulled out the Distressed Couture Glitz sticker sheet and saw the “What is Love?” sticker, I instantly knew that I had the title for my next layout.

I decided to go with a few photos of my husband and I on the layout. Sadly, I discovered that we hardly have any pictures of just the two of us. Now I’ve set a goal to make more of an effort to hand the camera over so that both of us can be together in a few photos.For the larger photo here, I had to crop the two of us from a photo of our family. Luckily our heads were close enough that the crop worked!
How good are you are getting in photos with people who are important to you? Will you join me in trying to jump in a few more photos with those we love?

Scrapbooking Treasure Box with Nicole Petersen

 Purses, boxes, bags, totes, crates, bins — it doesn’t matter! I love them all. I collect them all, but I also like to change them from time to time to match decor, the holidays, or party themes. This little beauty will be tucked away in my scrapbook studio to hold lots of scrapping goodies.
Check out the large flower that I made with the gorgeous Maya papers from Glitz! This collection has bright, yummy, juicy colors mixed with a gentle green that scream to be used in and on all sorts of projects or layouts.
Don’t forget about the incredible, new stamps from Glitz! (I also collect stamps!) I stamped the background with the Maya Rose and Maya Bird stamps with different color inks. Next, I embossed the large frame and layered it with Glitzers and a hand cut bird. To make your own bird, stamp the image on the back of your paper, cut out, add a bit of ink, and pop it up with a bit of adhesive! Fun and easy with the Maya papers from Glitz!

Supply List: Glitz: Maya Collection Papers, Maya Glitzers, Maya Bird and Rose Stamps, Fancy Frames Stamps, and Glitz bling, artificial flowers (Michael’s)

Romantic Maya Cards with Christine Penaflor

Good morning! Today I’d like to share a couple of cards that I created using some yummy Glitz Design products from the Maya collection!  As a part of the card design team, I am so very honored to be able to use their wonderful products for these projects, and this collection was the first thing to catch my eye after opening up the box of goodies from Glitz Design. I love the vibrant colors and grungy feel of this collection, and I just knew that I would dig into them first for my debut projects with Glitz Design!
The first card was created using this past week’s Card Patterns Sketch 64. I used navy blue Bazzill cardstock for the card base and layered a white cardstock mat which was punched with an EK Success border punch on top of the card base. Next, I took a piece of Glitz Design patterned paper (Maya Polka from the Maya collection) and stitched a border around it with my sewing machine.
Then I die cut a piece of navy cardstock, embossed it with a Cuttlebug folder, painted a layer of Blue Into Town Shimmerz Pearlz on it, and added a gold border using my Krylon gold metallic marker. On top of this die cut piece is a die cut  and embossed chipboard heart painted with Grammie Berrie Shimmerz Pearlz. I added a Prima flower and the Glitz Design sentiment sticker and adhered it to the card front. Finally, I wrapped a piece of crinkled seam binding and a bow embellished with a gold button onto the card.
The second card was inspired by this week’s sketch 139 over at the Mojo Monday blog. This time my card base was made from white cardstock, and I used another piece of Glitz Design Maya Polka patterned paper. What can I say? I love it! I punched the bottom border using a Martha Steward border punch. Next, I drew a border around the patterned paper and embellished it with pearls in each corner as well as along the bottom border of the paper.

I cut a piece of Glitz Design Maya Damask paper and painted the edges with white gesso. On top of this piece is a measuring tape sticker from Glitz Design, a die cut chipboard that was embossed, sprayed with Shimmerz Snow Storm Vibez spray, and painted with Green with Envy Shimmerz Pearlz. After adhering the chipboard piece to the card front, I embellished it with a Prima flower and a couple of crinkled seam binding pieces.
Thank you for joining me today! I hope that you’ve enjoyed seeing the new Maya collection products from Glitz Design on these cards. They were so fun to work with!
