Beautiful Layouts with Jolaine Frias

Hello again! As you probably know by now, our challenge for this month is to draw inspiration in the photo below for our projects. Easy task I thought as the photo is simply gorgeous!

For my first layout, I used the photo as a sketch and tried to recreate its design features.
The Peek-A-Boo frame made it easy to include the round element in place of the mirror and all the fussy cut flowers helped me re-create the garland on the mantle. Here’s a couple of close-ups…

For my next layout, I wanted to create a wintry page using a monochromatic palette, just like in the photo. Though Glitz doesn’t have a winter-themed collection, I thought blue, cream and ivory would help me scrap this photo of my daughter wearing a Santa hat (though I cropped the red part off).

I used a mini album page and a doily die  for my background. I also stamped a couple of images onto my page.

Thanks so much for visiting the Glitz blog today. I hope you found inspiration in my post. And don’t forget, the challenge of the month is still going on!

Layouts that Twinkle with Audrey Yeager

Hello! Audrey here to share a double pager and my take on this months inspiration piece. This is the photo that we were to draw some inspiration from for a layout or project.

I loved the soft green color of the evergreens and the bright white stars, so I used them on my page. There is a tinge of silver on some of the evergreen branches in the photo, so I used some silver paint and splattered it on the background.

There is a bit of dark blue tulle under the photo and the circle shape in the inspiration piece inspired me to stitch a circle frame around my photo.

I found a cutting file online that I used to cut the evergreen branches. I misted the paper with a bit of green mist to give it a bit of contrast aginst the background.

I then cut a few stars and scattered the on the page, and hung my title on some twine much like how the word “snow” was hung in the inspiration photo.

For this next page, I really wanted to use a lot of pink to showcase the girly theme of my page!  My little girl is really into putting on makeup like mommy does (and she calls it “gump gump”).  I had so many photos of this particular makeup incident that I had to do a two pager.

I used two different papers for the background but connected them using the houndstooth print.  The girly flowers, prints, and phrases all fit together so perfectly.

\Thanks for joining me this month!

Soft & Shabby Cards with Laurie Schmidlin

Hi there!  Laurie here, and it’s my turn again to share some more projects with you!
Valentine’s Day is one of my favorite holidays!  I mean, a whole day devoted to letting people know how wonderful they are…what could be better?  :-)
GD Be Brave
Technically, this first card isn’t a Valentine’s Day card, but I was just so smitten with the Beautiful Dreamer line and I thought it would look pretty as an encouragement card as well!  :-)
GD Be Brave2
I am so loving Glitz’s new Epoxy Word stickers!  They are just the perfect addition to any card!
GD Love U
My second card is all about Love!  I used part of a Love Nest Whatnot (I cut off the bingo part) for the Love layer.  In fact, I cut up my Whatnots a lot!  Shocking, I know…but they not only last longer but they fit better onto my cards.  :-)  To finish the card off, I added lots of trims and ribbon, a button, a Love Nest Rub On (on the right upper corner) and a cardstock “u” sticker!

Textured Layouts with Rommel Okuma

Hi there! How have you been, scrappers? Hope everybody is doing well!  Today I want to share two projects that I worked with textures.  One of the projects was inspired by this gorgeous photo sent by Lea, our DT coordinator:

When I saw this photo for the first time I was delighted by the circular mirror. The second part that impressed me were the many textures in it. Inspired by these two points, I created the page below:

I used this beautiful frame with roses from the Beautiful Dreamer Peek-a-Boo pack:

Then I layered many papers, die cuts cut from Whatnots and used a bunch of Distress Ink Photo Vintage color for a grunge effect. See more details:

My second project for today I worked more with textures. To add this texture I used many strips of this floral paper:

Peek-a-boo frame with a quote from Dance in the sunshine Clear Stamp:

Hand made frabric flowers inked with Distress Stain:

I painted this accent from Peek-a-boo with Distress Crackle Paint. I liked the effect:

A Rhinestone to add some sparkle to the project:

Another stamp for Dance in sunshine clear stamp set:

Graduation Card & Banner with Kristii Lockart

Hi there dear friends! I have a different type of post for you today!  My daughter graduated from college this past December and I wanted to make some special decorations for the celebration since there were no graduation decorations available.  The school colors were blue and gold and I immediately thought of the Vintage Blue Collection from glitz Design!

My first project was a card for the graduate:

I used Vintage Blue Motif paper along with a Vintage Blue Cardstock Title Sticker for the base of the card.  The sticker’s sentiment, “Celebrate the Sweet Life” is perfect for a graduation!!

I added some lace, Tim Holtz Ideology metal embellishments and button to finish the card.

Supplies used:
Glitz Design Vintage Blue Paper: Motif
Glitz Design Vintage Blue Cardstock Stickers: Titles
Other Supplies:
Papertrey Ink Rustic Cream Cardstock, For the Graduate Stamps, Parisian Lace Doily Die; Hand Dyed Seam Binding; Prima Lace; Tim Holtz Ideaology Embellishments; Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distress Ink

I also created a “Congrats Grad” banner using the Vintage Blue Polka Papers:

The Vintage Blue Polka Paper is Blue on one side and Gold on the back side.  Absolutely Perfect!!!  I cut two sizes of banners and adhered the gold onto the blue banner.  I cut out the letters using my Cricut machine and I added some Melissa Frances Tissue Paper Garland and die-cut doily.

I used my Crop-o-dile to punch holes in the corners of each pennant and tied the pennants together with button twine.  I also added a die-cut star to separate the two words in the banner.
I hung the banner in the hallway entrance and it made our dining room very fun and festive!

Supplies used:
Glitz Design Vintage Blue Polka Papers
Melissa Frances Tissue Paper Garland
Papertrey Ink Rustic cream paper and StarDie, Banner Die and Parisian Lace Doily Die
Cricut Machine and A Child’s Year Cartridge

Thanks for stopping by!!
Wishing you a very Glitzy Day,
Kristii

Banners & Trim with Noel Culbertson

Starting this month with the Glitz Design design team we are working with a monthly inspiration piece for our projects. 

This month I was inspired by sparkles, swags, strings and shades from this photo.

2011_1221_008a
For my first layout, I was inspired by the letters on a string and decided to mimic the swagged letters with a few banners. The pale yellows and greens were such a great combo, I changed the proportions and made the pale green the dominant color. The sparkly snow letters inspired me to dig through  my stash to find some white glittered letters to add to my title.

For my second layout, I was inspired by the soft white accents layered in the garland and added sheer floral ribbon, a doily and a cardstock sticker to strips of lace and pleated paper. The touch of glitter in the photo inspired me to add a little sparkle with a Glitzer sticker and a rhinestone.
