Sweet as Candy with Tracie Hudson

To create a quick gift for a friend of mine I covered and decorated a box, which was then filled with sugar coated almonds – which I know are her favourite treats.

To create the tag which nestles amongst the roses, I used a stamp from the Beautiful Dreamer clear stamp set from Glitz Designs – the Epoxy accent sit inside the decorative border perfectly.

Product used – Glitz Designs Beautiful Dreamer Damask BD3548, Houndstooth BD3562, Trim TR3395, Epoxy Words ES3364 and Clear Stamps ST3265.

A Glitzy Tree with Audrey Yeager

Hope you are getting into the Holiday spirit!  Audrey here with you today to share a quick altered project that you can easily make to Glitz up your home for the holidays!

I simply took 2 sheets of the Vintage Blue Floral paper and misted a bit with some dark green spray mist. I then cut them into 1.25”x12” strips and punched with my Martha Stewart pine needle punch.  I hot glued the strips around the tree and layered them as I went up.  I added some of the Glitz Designs Giant Rhinestones as decorations, and now I have a beautiful Glitzy Tree to add to my table centerpiece!

Shaped Layouts with Karola Witczak

Hello everyone! Karola here with my two layouts made using new Glitz collections. I suppose I don’t need to say how wonderful they are, but forgive me, I have to say: they are absolutely fantastic! Lea once wrote to me: “these collections are right in your alley,” and was absolutely right! This is a great pleasure to work with such wonderful designs! For today I prepared two layouts created with the Vintage Blue and Beautiful Dreamer collections. On both layouts is my daughter Rose.
In my first project I wanted to create an interesting layout shape and I decided to cut out bracket shape using my Cricut. Photo was adhered under one of the Peek-a-boo elements – I just love the result! At the bottom of the page I put one sheet of Paper Layers – the perfect backdrop for a variety of small elements which can be found here. As you can see, here is a whole lot of layers and small elements. I found them in the Whatnots cards, some of them cut out from the cards, others cut in the smaller parts. A fantastic addition are Glitzers – a wonderful, delicate stickers added a great charm to my page.

Here are a few close ups:

In my second project I decided to create a page in a non-girlish colors. The combination of blue and yellow always seemed to me typical boyish, but here I decided to create another very delicate and girly layout, full of layers and details. The main theme here are the birds – the title is: “you are my birdie,” so I decided to take advantage of the birds found in Whatnots, it appeared that fits perfectly here!
and a few close ups…

As you can see the creation of multi-layered and rich pages is extremely easy with Glitz collections – there are so many to choose from, to cut and to build pages in the projects with so many elements – I just love it and you?

Girly & Shabby Layouts with Jolaine Frias

Hi everyone! For my assignment today I thought I’d go over the top girly and shabby with the Beautiful Dreamer collection. Here’s what a created…


For this layout, I did lots of heavy distressing and a bit of layering but the design is pretty simple. I love the combination of dusty pink and grey, so pretty!

And a few close-ups,

For my second layout, I decided to use an old die cut paper to create a shaped page. I also did some masking along with lots of layering and fussy cutting.

Take a closer look,

Thanks so much for joining me today. Have a very glitzy day!!!!!

Love & Live Cards with Michelle Philippi

I’m not sure why, but everytime I work with the Dance in Sunshine collection I break out in song with that 70s tune “Dancin’ in the Moonlight.” Know it? It really is an upbeat and fun song. I don’t know why they danced in the moonlight – the beat is much more suitable for the sunshine! But I digress now to share a couple of bright and fun cards to beat those cold fall doldrums. I love the warmth of the yellow in this collection – suitable for fall or summer….or even spring, I reckon.

Mixing Glitz collections with Audrey Yeager

Audrey here with you today to share some fun layouts.  When I first saw the Laced with Grace collection months ago, my first thought was how perfect the colors were for fall photos.  I espeically love the piece with the plaid print on it.  So this time of year is the perfect time for me to use up these beautiful papers!

I embossed some kraft cardstock that matched my background cardstock with a burlap plate to give my page a bit more texture.

The top layer of the flower I cut using a die and muslin and then misted it with a bit of yellow.  The bottom part is a piece of the “Paper Layers” paper that I rolled and fringed.

I used some of the banner pieces from the cardstock stickers and mounted them on a thin piece of muslin as the string.  I tied knots in between each pennant.

This next page I really wanted to make “fun”.  My little guy just loves to watch his mobile….he is mesmerized by it!

I wanted to pick up on the spinning motion, so I cut a circle frame from patterened paper and then stitched around it with back thread to show movemement.

On the background, I used a herringbone template as a mask and painted over it with a white paint dauber to added a bit more pattern. A little red heart on the left side of the page picks up on the red in the photo and draws your eyes across the page.

Thanks for joining me today!

Beautiful Dreamer with Traci Hudson

Its that time of the month when I get to share a couple of projects created using the wonderful Glitz Designs.

To create this page I hand cut and layered up the floral designs to sit beneath my photograph. I cut one of the Peek a Boo printed transparent embellishments down to create the frame around the photograph and used a combination of Cardstock Stickers and Epoxy Words to create the title.

Product used – Dance in Sunshine Birds DS3463, Floral DS3418, Damask DS3425, Whatnot WN3159; Beautiful Dreamer Polka BD3579, Toile BD3555, PeekaBoo PAB3173, Epoxy Words ES3364, Titles TS3081.

Using a large photograph on this letter sized page meant that the photograph remained the main focus, with the addition of a small cluster of accents to embellish.

Shabby Floral Layouts with Rommel Okuma

Hi guys! How have you been????  Here in Brazil, we have spent some hot hot hot spring days!  Today I want to share some projects using amazing Glitz goodies in two shabby pages.

Let’s see! This first project I have used Vintage Blue collection, with my parent’s wedding photo. This is one of I like so much and inspire me to create something romantic.

I was so inspired by this photo, and I decide to use blue, just blue, to create this page. The background was inked with Glimmer Chalk and Perfect Pearls Mist. The pale yellow of background paper add some luminosity for the page. If I had used other blue paper, I think the project could be dark.

This frame is a cardstock sticker too.  The bard cage is from Vintage Blue’s Peek a boo.
The title is a cardstock sticker from this collection. And so so so perfect for the page’s idea! I loved!
This gorgeous rose was cut out from a paper from this collection. Above this I layered other flowers.
Project: I have found the one my soul loves.

Beautiful Dreamer collection are made with a sweet and delight color pallet: pink, acqua, white and grey. With this color combination I made a sweetie girlie page.

The papers and all the acessories and embellishments are so inpisring to create! Don’t you think so? In this page I also used the Rhinestones. I loved the way this “stones” can stunning the page at all!

I used the clear stamps set from Beautiful Dreamer collection. The lace stamp is perfect! I stampping up with Stazon Black in a white cardstock. So then I cutted the stamp and create some clusters and layered with with circles embossed papers.

This transparency frame higlighted the photo. The sticker journaling was cutted and to create a title for this page I used Epoxy words. See some details of the page’s title:
