Thoughtful Layouts with Emeline Seet

My layouts in today’s post were created using warm colors and Glitz Design’s has just about the perfect colors!

Shabby warm colored pattern papers, transparencies, cardstock stickers, stamps etc.
It’s amazing how varied and versatile Glitz Design’s have come up with. On my first layout, I made use of “Beautiful Dreamer” collection.

Boo! Banner with Tracie Hudson

This year has certainly flown by and I can hardly believe that Halloween is already upon us… it’ll be Christmas! YAY! My favourite time of the year :D
Decorating the house for Halloween is becoming more and more popular in the UK and whilst we have the mandatory Pumpkins sitting outside our home, I wanted to create a banner to greet the “Trick or Treaters” who will no doubt be making their way to our door.

Triangles of card were cut from empty cereal packets (I love to recycle) and then covered in papers from Glitz Designs. To pretty up the edges, I simply cut strips of patterned paper and then punch the edges using a Martha Stewart punch. The punched strips were then attached to the reverse of the triangles before I covered the reverse sides with co-ordinating paper.

Paper roses are one of my favourite quick fix embellishments to make – they are so quick and easy and a great way to use up scraps of patterned paper. Chipboard alphas added my greeting “Boo!” and to add a little sparkle to my banner I added crystal swirls.

Product used – Glitz Designs Patterned Papers – Distressed Couture DC2310, Scarlett S2075and S2051; Scenic Route alphas; Prima Say it in Crystals; May Arts Ribbon.

Thanks for dropping by and I hope you have a very Happy Halloween.

Layered Vintage Blue with Jolaine Frais

Hello everyone! I’m excited to be back today to share a couple of pages I created using the beautiful new collection Vintage Blue. I adore the bold colors on this line and thought it was perfect for a grungy LO with a soft edge.

I used my Big Shot to cut out some gears with chipboad and embossed them using Distress embossing powder. I also added a few flowers but since they have a newsprint design, I thought they could be somewhat manly, what do you think? Did I get away with it? LOL!

The photo here is my husband and son embracing each other. I thought that was a sweet moment to document and the tulle trim was used to add some softness to the overall feel of the page.

For my background, I used a Crafter’s Workshop brick template and misted with Glimmer Mist. I love the new stamps which I added in the corner here.

For my next page, I created a more femenine design with the same collection. I wanted to show how versatile Vintage Blue can be!

I did some detailed cutting and layered the images around my photo.

Some of the cut out elements were poped up with dimentionals. I also inked the edges and stitched around my background paper.
I hope you feel inspired to work with this beautiful collection. Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Simply Pretty Cards with Michelle Philippi

I’m not so much of a stamper. I’m just a cardmaker. Don’t get me wrong, I can stamp and I do…but not often. I have this whole lazy and lack of patience thing goin’ on. That’s why I love love love Glitz collections because they come with the patterned paper, cardstock pieces, the cardstock stickers, the acetate pieces (Peek-A-Boos), teeny alphas, trims and more. I mean I don’t even have to get my fingers dirty! Love that.
So here I have a couple of no-stamp-but-still-pretty cards.

Little Ones layouts with Audrey Yeager

Audrey here today to share some layouts using one of my favorite colors: YELLOW! I love using yellow to help brighten up my pages.

On this first page, my photos had a little bit of a yellow tint to them because of the lighting in the room we were in. The colors of my daughters dress seemed to contrast well with the yellows in the papers. I captured some of the first moments of my daughter meeting her little brother for the first time! :)

I mounted the large photo on a journaling spot to help it stand out. I LOVE the doilies on the Beautiful Dreamer stamp set, so I stamped on patterned paper and layered them. I added some Glitzer’s, Epoxy stickers, and some cardstock stickers on top.

I also stamped some of the silhouettes and added some crackle accents to give some texture.

I do a photoshoot every month with my kiddos and this photo was the result of last months. My little guy was wearing grey and yellow, so I went with the grey and yellow on my page.

For the title, I backed one of the Peek-a-Boos with some yellow dot paper. On the houndstooth circle What-Not, I was able to cut out a corner and make another circle and a heart to make a visual triangle.

I am just loving using all the new Glitz lines with photos of my little ones!!!

Vintage Goodness with Laurie Schmidlin

Good morning!  I’m excited to be able to share with you what I’ve been up to in my craft room lately!  :-)
GD Dream
My first card features items from the new Vintage Blue collection.  The soft and dreamy focal image is a Vintage Blue Whatnot.  I offset and layered that onto a heart Cardstock Sticker.  In the top left corner, I embossed the birds (from the Vintage Blue Clear Stamps set) and on the bottom patterned paper layer I stamped the lace trim and postal markings (also from the Vintage Blue Clear Stamp set).  I finished it off with an Epoxy Word.
GD All the Difference
To create this soft and girly card, I reached for the Beautiful Dreamer collection!  Oh how these pretty papers and embellishments make my heart go pitter-patter!  I layered the focal image (a Whatnot from the Beautiful Dreamer collection) onto a circular Peek-a-Boo.  For the tag, I stamped the sentiment onto a Beautiful Dreamer Cardstock Sticker.

Thanks so much for joining me here today!  ~Laurie

Girlie Layouts with Rommel Okuma

Hello there! Rommel is here! :)

I’m so amazed with the new collections from Glitz Design! Vintage Blue, Dance in Sunshine and Beautiful Dreamer are really really really stunning!!!!

Today I made some girlie projetcs using Dance in Sunshine and Beautiful Dreamer lines, and I want do share my inspirations with you all. Let’s go!

In this first layout I used some goodies from Dance in Sunshine. I chose two colors to work with in this project: purple and green. I’ve never used this color combo, and I’m really suprise with the result:

I added some dimensions in this project to highlight details, like this bird, cut from paper:

The purple frame can give an amazing effect!

The flowers I made with Tim Holtz Alterations Dies, Distress Inks and Perfect Pearls Mists:

The green paper strips was decorated with two kinds of border puncher.

Project – My all:
Supplies used:
Dance in sunshine papers: Birds, Damask, Floral, Raindrops
Dance in sunshine Rhinestones
Dance in sunshine title stickers
Dance in sunshine Peek a boos
Dance in sunshine cardstock stickers

In this other project I decided to use bright soft colors like blue and pink, and a little bit of grey to pop-up the two principal colors. Beatufil Dreamer is perfect to create shabby chic pages!

I cut some flags in different sizes and pasted without order. I loved using this simple lace to add a lovely detail to highlight even more the grey paper decorated with a punched border:

The roses and frame came from Whatnots. I just love all the shapes and images we have in Whatnots packs.

And here are more details from this page:

Project: Sweet as candy
Beautiful Dreamer papers: Damask, Floral, Polka, Houndstooth, Stripe
Beautiful Dreamer Trim
Beautiful Dreamer Whatnots
Beautiful Dreamer  Epoxy Stickers

So this is for today! Hope you have enjoyed this projects!!!!

XOXO see you next month!
