Vintage Blue goodness with Kristii Lockart

Hi there dear friends!! I hope you are having a wonderful day!!  I’m positively excited to share some Vintage Blue love with you today!!!
The first card features a very vintage design using Vintage Blue Paper, Whatnots, and Peek-a-boos.  I layered a strip of Motif paper on top of a trimmed Peek-a-boo and stitched the seam.

I fussy cut the bird from a Whatnot and layered him on top of another Whatnot and a Prima Birdcage.  I added some Tea Dyed Twill Ribbon and button embellishments.

Supplies Used:
Glitz Design “Vintage Blue” Papers:  Motif
Glitz Design “Vintage Blue” Whatnots
Glitz Design “Vintage Blue” Peek-a-Boos
Other Supplies:  Papertrey Ink Rustic Cream Cardstock, Tiny Tags Die, Friendship Jar Stamps (Sentiment), buttons and twine;  Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distress Ink; Melissa Phillips Tea Dyed Twill; Prima Birdcage

I just had to make a Christmas Card using the Vintage Blue line and I thought Tim Holtz Tattered Pine Cone Die would complement the papers perfectly!

 I trimmed a Vintage Blue Peek-a-Boo and then layered it over Rustic Cream cardstock. Then I added strips of Glitz Design Vintage Blue Motif paper on the top and bottom of the card.  I added the Tatted Pinecones, a birdcage Peek-a-Boo,  some vintage hymnal paper and buttons to embellish the card.

Supplies Used:
Glitz Design “Vintage Blue” Papers:  Motif
Glitz Design “Vintage Blue” Peek-a-Boos

Beach Paradise to Snowy Paradise with Noel Culbertson

One year ago today I was enjoying the sunshine on a small beach in Fiji. It was my eleventh anniversary, and my husband and I were on the trip of a lifetime. After six long deployments, falling over half of our total anniversaries, it was a dream come true. Ten days with no TV, computers, cars or cares.

Today we’re gearing up for deployment number eight, in the next few weeks. It might not be Fiji, but it is what makes our lives uniquely ours. The daily wonders and heartaches, these are the things that mold our hearts and bring us closer together. Life is beautiful in all of its joys and sorrows, because of our joys and sorrows. My hope is to seize each instant and truly live.

Last year, we soaked in the beauty of each moment of those ten perfect days in the sun, and came home to a fresh falling snow and the warm glow of our own hearth and home.

Dreamy Layouts with Camilla Ekman

Hi all! It’s Camilla here. This month I played with the divine collection “Vintage Blue”. The colours are so rich and the patterns so lovely.

For this layout I used the banner pieces from the … and chose a picture of my kids. I really like the dark yellow against the blue. The whiter pieces makes the layout brighter.

Remembering the hard stuff with Nicole Martel

November’s a really tough month in my house. November 6, 2006 We lost someone really close to us… my Father-in-law. It was so sad and I miss him terribly. I’ve been wanting to create this layout for almost 5 years and could not bring myself to do it until just recently. I decided to write a letter to my Father-In-Law even though I cannot see or talk to him but I know he’s always with me as my Guardian Angel. Atleast I hope so.

Here are a few close ups:

Supplies used:

French Inspiration with Michelle Philippi

I’ve got to admit, I find blue to be a bit of a challenging color to work with. Or maybe it’s just not one that I think of using very often? I’m not sure why that is. I have nothing against the color. It’s quite pretty. And oh-so vintage. Like this sweet little Marie Antoinette image in this Vintage Blue Glitzer. Takes me back to what seems like an imaginary time. Oh the corsets and the hats and the bustling dresses.
Vintage Blue conjurs up such dreamy images, don’t you think?!
And here’s a little 60th birthday card that I made for my beloved Godmother.
One of the most beautiful and most resilient women I have ever known; the way the pieces of this card came together to create what resemble her strength touches me greatly.
Je T’aime.

Combining Collections with Mou Saha

Hi everyone, Mou Saha here with today’s layouts!

For my first layout, I turned to each new collection because as beautiful as they are individually, I think they work together wonderfully too.

I used a rose frame from Beautiful Dreamer Peek-A-Boos. I stamped the Vintage Blue rose onto scrap cardstock with a Ranger Archival Sepia Ink Pad and used watercolor pencils to color it a similar shade as the rose in the frame. Then I cut it out and layered with pop dots next to the frame.

I  journaled in the little ornate label printed on the Beautiful Dreamer Houndstooth paper and added a Vintage Blue lace trim to finish.

My second layout is also a combination of all three collections.

Scrapbooking your Nieces with Michelle Jackson-Mogford

Hi all it’s that time again to share some gorgeous Glitzyness with you from Glitz Designs. This last week I have had my 2 nieces staying with me and of course I had to keep snapping away! The photos I have chosen to scrap really sum up their personalities and the Glitz embellishments let me write some meaningful aunty messages to them.
First up is Lilly ….

Completely be you always.
Lilly is such a unique, beautiful girl and I want her to always be exactly who she is, the hello kitty hat won out over a piece of Goth jewellery for instance on a shopping trip, I love the fact that she is an individual and proud of it.

For the layout I used;
Glitz Designs patterned paper: Dance in Sunshine; Birds, damask, polka and raindrops
Glitz Deigns Dance in Sunshine; Trim, Epoxy Words, Paper Layers, Whatnots, Journalling stickers and Glitzers
Glitz Deigns Vintage Blue Peek a boos and Glitzers

By combining lots of strips of papers down the page I was able to use lots of the lovely paper, I love the green and lilac combo in this line with the pep of the yellow. I distressed the 2 circular whatnots to add an extra mat for the photo and added a glitzer for some extra bling. I love how the lines can cross over with their patterns and colours.

By lifting the photo on foam pads I was able to slot in the journaling block behind it, and a bird cut from a paper layer sits on top.

I love the new epoxy stickers, you can make up all sorts of sentiments with them in colours that all co-ordinate.

And lastly by adding the peek a boo from vintage blue onto some of the yellow paper I could make it take on a green hue to co-ordinate with my layout and this was my way to add my little message to Lilly.

My next layout features Megan.

No I haven’t spelt it wrong, this is Megans version of the kissing rhyme! She had us in stitches and it’s just so Megan, there’s no one like her! The 2 photos are the 2 sides of this complex, funny little girl.

Beautiful dreamer was the perfect line to tell the story and here is what I used;
Glitz Designs patterned paper: Beautiful Dreamer; Damask, Floral, Stripe, Polka and Toille.
Glitz Designs Beautiful Dreamer; Trim, Giant Rhinestones, Epoxy words and paper layers.
Glitz Designs Dance in Sunshine; Whatnots
Glitz Designs Vintage Blue clear stamps
Glitz Designs Teeny Alphas; Bubble gum pink

The spiral is cut from a paper layer and I only adhered it at the end so it has some movement. Strips of paper across the layout build up the background and again allowed me to use lots of the yummy colours.

I love the Pink and green in this line and used the bold pink stripe as mats for my photos to pop them off the page. The what not bunting from dance in sunshine is a perfect accent for my main photo and little word details added with the epoxy words work beautifully to tie everything together.

I created a journalling block from some of the ledger paper, punching it along the side. Adding some trim and a rhinestone added that extra bit of girlyness and the final touch is my little message to Megan in the form of the stamped heart from the Vintage Blue clear stamp collection …. I love Glitz stamps!

That’s all from me for now, Thanks for popping by and letting me share my Glitzy projects with you.
I hope you’re all well and happy and until soon Happy Crafting

Vintage Blue Cards with Laurie Schmidlin

Good morning!  I’ve got a couple of cards featuring Glitz Design’s yummy Vintage Blue collection to share with you today!

GD Joy

For my first card, I started by choosing some coordinating Vintage Blue patterned papers.  For the focal piece, I layered a pretty Glitzer frame on to a Vintage Blue Whatnot.  I then added a die cut butterfly, flower, string, and some Vintage Blue tulle.

GD Love

I liked the look of the die cut butterfly so much, I decided to add one to my second card as well!  For this card, I chose three different Vintage Blue patterned papers and then added a muslin half circle.  For embellishments, I added a Peek-A-Boo, some Vintage Blue lace, floral trim, a matching flower, rhinestones, and some Epoxy Words.
Thanks so much for joining me here today!  I hope your day is filled with all of the things you love!  ~Laurie
