Enchanting Cards with Kay Sibley

Hello friends!  The air is cool and crisp and I’m starting to feel the first hints of Fall.  This is one of my favorite seasons and I love all the wonderful things Fall brings!  Last weekend was the official kick off for the American football season and our house was buzzing with cheers and jeers while watching games on television .  I always look forward to a weekend of hibernation when the weather is cold. There’s nothing like cuddling on the sofa with a big, warm blanket for an afternoon of football!

But, of course, there’s only so many games I can watch before getting the itch to get some crafting done.  So, I pulled out my super fab Glitz Design goodies and got to work!  

This first card is adorned with Distressed Couture papers, stickers, and rub ons.  I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again…I LOVE layering the Glitz cardstock stickers!  I just can’t stop using them for the dimension and interest they add!  :)  

I’m not one to toot my own horn but do you sometimes step back after making a card or layout and say to yourself “By golly, I really like that!”?  LOL!  For some reason, this card especially makes me happy. I think it’s the combination of clean, crisp colors, the pink flower sticker, scallops, and overall delicate look.  I really enjoyed using the Maya line for this!   

Thank you SO MUCH for stopping by for a visit!  Happy creating!

Outside the "Boundary" with Courtney Baker

It’s my turn to post on the Glitz blog today, and I don’t know about you but I’ve been in a serious fall mood lately. I’m all about the weather, the colors, layering clothes, etc. So why not just make my Glitz cards with the things I’m so in love with right now? I broke out some orange, grayish blue, and dark green cardstock and got to work with some of my favorite Glitz products.

For this first card, I’ve always thought this piece from the Vintage Love Whatnots would make a great masculine card. However, I’m not really that great with masculine cards, but this piece really helped this card come together. I really love the outcome.

For this card I used Vintage Love Whatnots and Distressed Couture Blocks.

For this next card it was all about the Vintage Love Extra Rub-Ons. I think these random alphas are really cool. And you’ll notice on both cards I push something outside the “boundary.” Of course that makes it harder to mail, but if you know you’ll be hand delivering it really adds an unexpected touch to a card.

For this card I used the Vintage Love Extra Rub-Ons and Fancy Frames Clear Stamps.

Maya Birthday Cards with Christine Penaflor

Good morning! Today I would like to share a couple of birthday cards that I created with some fabulous Glitz Design products. I have a sister-in-law who celebrates a birthday in September and one of these cards will be going to her soon! :)


The first card was inspired by this week’s Card Patterns sketch #80. For this card, I started with a cream card base. Next, I took a piece of Maya Damask paper, edged it with a metallic gold leafing pen and mounted onto the card front.  I punched a border along the bottom edge of the Maya Polka paper and layered a piece of aida cloth on top of this piece of paper.  I punched a piece of the Maya Damask paper, mounted a piece of white lace on top of it, and edged it with the gold leafing pen. This piece was adhered on top of the aida cloth layer as shown.


Next, I die cut a label from the back side of the Maya Damask paper and added the sentiment using the pink block alphabet stickers. The ribbon was threaded through the label and a bow was adhered to the right side of the label as shown. Three rolled paper flowers were created using the Maya Polka paper and embellished with pink pearls. Finally a Prima pearl swirl was added to the card for the finishing touch.

Products used:

  • Maya Damask (M2280)
  • Maya Polka (M2297)
  • Teeny Alpha – Pink Block (C2815)
  • Other: aida cloth, Prima pearl swirls, lace,
    ribbon, EK Success punch, Spellbinders label die, Krylon gold marker, Kaisercraft pearls

Laura’s sketch #60 over at 2 Sketches 4 You inspired this next card I’m sharing with you today.


To create this card, I first scored the front of the card base using my Scor Pal at ½-inch increments vertically. Next, I cut a piece of Maya Polka and mounted it to a piece of navy embossed cardstock. Then I layered a length of lace on top of the Maya Polka paper. After die cutting the kaleidoscope lace pendant shape from the green side of the Maya Damask paper, I adhered a navy die cut label with the sentiment on top of the label. I embellished the label with a couple of pieces of a doily above and below the sentiment and added white pearls to the green kaleidoscope pendant die cut paper.


Next, I threaded a length of pink ribbon through the ends of the label and secured the ends under the navy cardstock. Finally, I embellished the card with two pink Prima flowers and a white Prima flower to complete it.

Products used:

  • Maya Damask (M2280)
  • Maya Polka (M2297)
  • Teeny Alpha – Pink Block (C2815)
  • Other:  Spellbinders kaleidoscope pendant and label die, lace, ribbon, doily, Recollections pearls, Prima flowers

Thank you for visiting today and have a great weekend!

Floral Delights with Tracie Hudson

Sometimes do you feel slightly overwhelmed by a piece of heavily patterned paper?
I know I do…..and that’s when I reach for my scissors and start snipping away.

I love to mix things up a little and to create this page I used Glitz product from both Maya and Audrey collections – I love how these collections compliment each other so well, plus its a great way to use up some of that older stash you may have sitting around waiting to be used.

I cut some of the floral and leaf detail from a sheet of Audrey patterned paper, and then layered some of these cut pieces, using foam dots, to create a floral spray across the page.

Maya Rubons and cardstock stickers were used to create the frame around my photograph, the title and the cluster to the left of the page.

To finish off my page, I added some of the teeny tiny alpha stickers and a little Glitz Frosting.

For this next letter sized page I wanted to use an older photograph of my Sisters and I, which was taken in 1973 – when we were small.

To create the page I used two coordinating papers from Glitz Vintage Love collection, which were machine stitched together.

I used one of the large Glitz Rub Ons, adhered to white cardstock, to create the frame around the photograph.

The title 1973 was stamped using Glitz stamps and I created lots of paper roses using scraps of Glitz paper and added swirly Glitz Frosting to complete the page.

Thanks for dropping by.

Photoless Layouts with Sasha Halloway

I am a big fan of picture-less layouts.
I feel that they allow you to focus more on the subject that you want to express in the layout via it be words or elements from a manufacturing company that says everything you want to say.
Today we are focusing on Kismet Collection and Vintage Love In the layout {Journey} I used the butterfly punch to focus on the pictures in the Vintage Love Whatnots cards by Glitz. I also complimented it with journaling by using French Carnival Rub-Ons also by Glitz.
Here is the layout in full view:
The next layout I completed titled {Travel} is focusing on the journaling and in my story to heal from my past. To really focus on that I wanted to make the journaling pop off the page by using my white Signo Uni-Ball pen.
The background was created using Glitz grid rub-ons sparingly. What i did was just slightly rubbed it on all over the layout and then quickly lifted it knowing it was not all stuck to the paper. I then took the extra and went around the edges of the paper.
Here is the full layout:

I hope you feel inspired to do a photo-less layout and use the rub-ons as main highlights to the page. Happy Creating

Using "Save The Date" stamps with Danni Reid

good morning.  i know it’s not quite halloween but halloween is one of those holidays that ALWAYS sneaks up on me.  there really is so much to do before the spooky night, costumes, class parties, goodie bags, carnivals, etc. & it just plain sneaks up on me.
so, i’ve made it a tradition to start halloween cards & goodie bags in september.  it was with this thought in mind, that i decided to create halloween cards for this post.  knowing that the Glitz lines were not halloween lines, i turned to my fun save the date stamps from and the Distressing 1 stamps to begin my cards.  i love these stamps, love that you can use them to distress a page/card or CREATE a background paper for a page/card, they are truly so much fun & so easy to use.
oct 31 card
   Halloween 2
i created the background paper using the distressing 1 stamps & some orange cardstock.   
i created the ghost using the distressed couture blocks paper, stitched all around the ghost & added some black frosting for eyes.  i then added teeny black alphas and the number 31 stamped using the save the date stamps.

i rubbed him onto white heavy-weight cardstock & then carefully cut him out & layered him on top of kraft cardstock with some mounting tape.

Lovely Maya Cards with Courtney Baker

Hey there! It’s Courtney here with some more card creations for you! I have to say, I never would have expected this when I got my goodies from Glitz because I don’t normally go for pink, but I just cannot seem to stop using the Maya Collection. I just love this collection.

For the first card, I started with a piece Maya Patchwork. It has numerous great patterns, so I just punched out a few of my favorites and started working with them. Here’s what the result was:

Patterned Paper: Maya Patchwork (Glitz)
Sticker: Maya Cardstock Sticker (Glitz)
There’s a lot of patterns going on, but once you add it to a white card base I think it makes a very interesting card.
For my next card, I just really wanted to use the flowers from Maya Accent Stickers. These big stickers make a really quick focal point! 
Patterned Paper: Maya Stripe, Maya Damask (Glitz)
I added my sentiment using those classic block letters and some messy sewing on my machine! Hopefully these bright, fun, flowers will make someone’s day.

Recording Hopes & Dreams with Noel Culbertson

Scrapbooking has always been a gateway for reflection on life, love and blessings. It records the hopes and dreams of the present, to reflect on at some moment in the future. As my girls get older, becoming a better parent is always on my mind. I stumbled across a quote online that struck a chord with me. I knew it was one that I wanted to preserve with some Glitz on a layout. Sometimes it is the simplest of things that reminds us just where we need to be.

The Quote:
“One night a father heard his daughter pray, ‘God, make me the kind of person my daddy is.’ Later that night the father prayed, ‘Lord, make me the kind of man my daughter needs me to be.’”
