With Holidays gone, we’re now looking forward to the New Year’s celebrations, and what better way to celebrate the fact, with some fun Glitz Design cards! I can’t wait to send these to my pals…
I combined the papers, some stickers and other gorgeous elements from two different collections, with a little bit of stamping, and whipped up these two
Now, the first card below… I LOVE how it turned out. I embossed the modern cityscape on the banner, creating a little night scene. I added some fireworks too, that I embellished with rhinestones. To this I added the chic Victorian lady, looking like she’s ready for a good, old-fashioned party uptown… hee hee!
(I cut her out of a Whatnot)

For the next card, I pulled out the trusty Hoopla collection. It’s made with birthday celebrations in mind, and I thought it would be wonderful for a New Year too. I made the cityscape peek out of the corner here as well, but the main role belongs to the fabulous, layered label sticker, paired with the sentiment.

Hello there, Jolaine here, and I’m so happy to be hosting the blog today. 2012 is fast approaching, phew! Where did this year go? It seems like only yesterday when we were welcoming 2011 so I couldn’t resist pulling out some photos from our last New Year’s Eve. I used a mix of from the three latest collections to create this fun page.
Here’s a couple of close-ups,
Next, I created a journal as a gift for a friend who likes all things shabby and girlie. To create my journal I cut two pieces of chipboard, regular copy paper and a few sheets of pattern paper to 8.25″x5.25″ and bound everything together with my Cinch.
I used the Beautiful Dreamer collection and added a Tim Holtz book plate and rosette trim with lots of images cut out of the paper collection.
I kept the inside very simple as I want the recipient to be able to journal and maybe adhere ephemera or photos throughout the book.
Thanks so much for stopping by today. I wish you all a happy and healthy new year filled with many blessings for you and your family.

That doesn’t mean though that I don’t put a lot of thought or heart in to them. I wanted to give my daughter a little book for Christmas. Some sort of female affirmation book. I want her to grow up to be strong and confident and know how much love we all have for her. So I got some coasters and started adhering great sentiments and pieces from Glitz’s Dance in Sunshine collection.

On the cover I machine stitched around a transparency and then tightened some aqua tulle around the front tied with an aqua pom-pom trim.
Good morning! It’s my turn again to share some Holiday projects featuring Glitz’s beautiful papers and embellishments!
For both of my projects today, I used papers and embellishments from the Dance in Sunshine collection! I thought the soft purple and teals in this collection would look so pretty all dressed up for the Holidays!
For my first project, I created a soft and festive bag…perfect for tucking a small gift or card set inside! Along with the papers (all from the Dance in Sunshine collection), I used a heart garland Whatnot to further embellish my bag.
For my next project, I created a matching card using many of the same papers and embellishments! The focal image on this card is the Peek-a-Boo frame with the stamped sentiment. I just love how all of the elements in this collection works so well together!
Thanks so much for joining me here today! Hugs, Laurie

Hey folks! Rommel here today to share some inspiration using Glitz Designs patterned paper and embellishments for this Holiday. I created 2 projects, an altered canvas for Christmas (that you can use as home decor) and a chipboard mini album telling my stories in 2011.
Let’s go! In this altered project I used Vintage Blue collection papers.
I almost created a monochromatic project. But I’ve missed some colors details. LOL :) So, I did make this flowers!
The tag was made using several kinds of spray ink and white emboss powder. See other details of this project below:
You can made an altered canvas like this to decorate your house for the holidays, using a beautiful photo of your family or of your children.
The other project I made for inspiring you all is a mini album, using the chipboard album from Dance in Sunshine Collection. The colors of this collection inspired me to tell my life in 2011; My conquers, some funny facts, and all the good things I lived in this amazing year!
The cover decorating using Glitz Teeny Alphas – White Type.
A great conquer in this year: an invite to be part of Glitz Design – 2011 Design Team. The Clear Stamps of this collection are really beautiful with some gorgeous designs! The quote I choosed to open my memorys from 2011 is: “Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass… it’s learning to dance in the rain!”
My cat Wasabi, I adopted in January, and the ladies of a workshop I taught at Rio de Janeiro. I used a several itens of Dance in Sunshine – Whatnot.
Bellow you can see the details of Chipboard Sticker and Whatnot.
A new apartament and a iten of Whatnot pack with a quote from H. D. Thoreau:
A special page to our Scrapbooking Fair (we have a big one in São Paulo!), and my new job as Marketing Assistant in a Wholesale Craft Company!
A detail with Chipboard Title Sticker:
Another photo, now with a team I taught in several workshops in that Fair!
I loved this die cut, from Whatnot pack too! And the mint grunge Tenny Alpha, so lovely:
Whatnot pack is filled of gorgeous die cuts. Some example is this heart I used in this page:
The last and not least page, to welcome a new year!

In my first project for today I used the Dance in Sunshine Damask paper along with Dance in Sunshine Peek a Boos for a very Victorian themed card:
I embossed a tag with Silver Fine Embossing powder and inked the edges with Tea Dye Distress Ink.
Although gift card holders are easy to make, a little extra embellishing can make them very special indeed!!

Wishing you a very Glitzy Day,
The Christmas season brings with it a thousand traditions big and small. From sentimental decorations to secret family recipes to sacred customs. It seems that significance is infused into everything around us. I love to take moments out during the holidays to reflect on all of the things I am thankful for around me and in my life. For our family, it’s a deployment year. Which means that we’ll be minus one during the season and beyond. It is a stark but valuable reminder to our family to be thankful for all of the time we do get to spend together knowing how precious each moment really is. I saw a sign recently that read, “What if you woke up tomorrow with only the things you thanked God for today?” It struck me as an especially good reminder for me this holiday season.
Taking a note from finding significance in all that surrounds us during the holiday season try changing up the color schemes on your Christmas layouts to another color that helps tell the story of your Christmas photos. The sweetness of these photos of daddy and daughter taken just before he left for deployment are wrapped in the charm of the soft textures and colors of the paper and embellishments.

It’s soon Christmas, my favourite season of all. I just love the smells, the warmth and the candles. It is a time for getting together with family and friends and just enjoy life. For Glitz this month I wanted to celebrate Christmas, but not in the traditional colours, but in pink. LOL
