Thank You Mom! with Rommel Okuma

Hello everybody! How you doing?  So, this month our inspiration challeng is about women!

And this is the reason I decided to create my projects inspired in my mother. This is my first layout:

In this project I used French Kiss collection with  Pretty Pink collection. I loved the combination with brown and pink, and certainly this collection work well together, please try it! I add a paper layer to create a background with several paper stripes as flag.  See more details below:

In this second layout I used a photo with my mother and my bother. The way my mother are looking to my brother touched me so much… and really his birth is miracle! I used Happy Travel collection in this project. In spite of all the collection is about travel, we can use it for in several themes, as I used here:

Here, I used paper layer to add a title for this page:

Travel Journal Gift Set with Kristii Lockart

Good morning sweet friends!!  I am excited to share a little Travel Journal Gift Set made with Glitz Design Happy Travels goodies!!!  My daughter and a very good friend of mine took “vacations of a lifetime” this month and their travels gave me the idea of making a gift for traveling friends and relatives.I embellished a kraft Moleskin Journal and added some envelopes for ephemera on the inside and added a card to complete the ensemble.

The card features stamped die cuts using the Glitz Design Happy Travels Clear Stamps, which I just love!!!
I masked the edges of the die cuts before I stamped to leave a nice clean border.  I added a rolled felt flower, lace, and cream seam binding to all the sweet little Glitz Happy Travels goodies.
Decorating Moleskine Journals is one of my all-time favorite gift ideas and making a travel journal is easy with Glitz Design goodies!!

I started with a Happy Travels paper layer and added a Happy Travels Titles Sticker and Rhinestone along with a Tim Holtz Ideology Word Key, some lace, ribbon and floral.  I machine stitched along the edge of the Paper Layer to add a finished look.

On the inside of the journal, I added some envelopes to hold ephemera and trinkets.
To insert the envelopes in the journal, I cut a 3 x 8-1/4 inch piece of patterned paper.  I scored the paper every 3/4 inch and folded accordion-style along the score lines.
I glued the edges of the folded piece of paper to the inside cover and the inside page of the journal.  Then, I glued the envelopes to the folds as shown.

I embellished the rest of the journal with Happy Travels goodies to complete the project.

I look forward to giving this to someone before their next trip.  Who knows, maybe I’ll give it to my daughters and we’ll go on a trip together!!!

Supplies Used:
Glitz Design Happy Travels Papers: Bicycle, Polka and World
Glitz Design Happy Travels Stickers: Layered, Epoxy, and Giant Rhinestones
Glitz Design Happy Travels Clear Stamps
Other Supplies: Moleskine Journal; Papertrey Ink Pure Poppy Felt, Seed Packet Die, Framed Out #1 Mini Die, Heart Border Die and Button Card Die; Hand Dyed Seam Binding: MemrieMare; Prima Lace and Floral

Thanks for stopping by and I hope I gave you some ideas for a journal of your own!!!
Have a wonderful day!!

Mamma Lilla with Camilla Eckman

Hi there! Camilla here to share some layouts. May is a month celebrating all mothers.
This is my mother the day we celebrated her 60th birthday. She really is the best mother and grandmother there is. Always there but never demands things in return. She helps out because she wants to. To create this layout I used the Pretty in Pink collection – gorgeous mix of pink, black and neutral.

Glitz Design loves Lime Tart Kits!

Paper crafting kit clubs are a necessary part of this little crafting world that we live in, and we love it when they include Glitz Design!  We have decided that we want to help promote kits that feature our product whenever we have space on the blog, and first up is Lime Tart!!  Here is what they had to say about the kits and Glitz Design:

At Lime Tart, we aim to provide unique and fun kits that will stimulate your senses and awaken your creativity.

We adore the rich colour palettes and stylish designs of Glitz collections. The versatility of the patterned papers and the original embellishment ideas are perfect for our creative kits.

Glitz designs have featured in many of our past offerings. Laced with Grace provided a gorgeous base for our stamping kit this time last year and 6 months ago we fell in love with Vintage Blue, creating our main kit from the papers and embellishments.

We currently have 2 kits available starring Glitz papers and alphas. The April Full Tart contains the stunning Happy Travels range and our May Half Tart is centred around the Pretty in Pink collection.

Our designers love working with Glitz Designs!! Here are some inspiring projects the girls have created with Lime Tart kits featuring Glitz.

First off- let’s check out the images of these two kits that are available!  Here is the April Full Tart kit:

And here is the May Half Tart kit!

Seeing Generations with Mou Saha

Hi everyone, Mou Saha here with today’s post.  This month our blog challenge is all about the women in our lives.

If I had to choose the biggest influences in my life, I’d have to pick my mom, my grandma and great-grandma. They shaped my values growing up. In my adult life, however, the biggest influence is my daughter, in whom I see a little bit of everyone of these ladies. My first layout is dedicated to all of these wonderful women.

Pretty Pink Cards with Laurie Schmidlin

Hi there!  It’s my turn to share my take on this month’s Glitz Blog Challenge – Celebrating the Women in our Life!  I immediately thought of the delicious Pretty in Pink Collection…all of that beautiful pink…and how perfect it is for feminine cards!

GD Happy Birthday Cupcake

My first card, I decided, would be a birthday card I will be needing for a good friend of mine later this month!  I cut out a cupcake shaped card using my Silhouette and several beautiful papers from the Pretty in Pink Collection.  I adorned my cupcake with some Pretty in Pink Glitzers and ribbon.

One quick tip – if you would like to use a Glitzer as a frame, make sure to stamp your image/sentiment first and then layer the Glitzer over it.  The shiny surface of the Glitzers do not lend themselves well to holding ink…but do display them nicely if they are stamped first!

GD Laugh

My second card is one that I also made for a friend of mine, and the girly colors of the Pretty in Pink papers are so perfect for it!  I used several different patterns to cut out petals for my flower and arranged them to form a large bloom.  I finished off my card with a Pretty in Pink Glitzer, a button, and some stitching.

Here’s some info on the Blog Challenge this month…


Thanks so much for joining me here today!  ~Laurie

Special Sisters with Lisa Andrews

This month Glitz Designs has a perfect challenge that encourages everyone to make a project about special women in our lives.

For the challenge, I decided to to a layout about my sister Melanie and I.  We live on opposite sides of the US, so we don’t get to see each other very often. (I do have two other wonderful sisters, but I do get to see them a lot more than I see Melanie!) Having a picture of us together is a rare treat. Our family got to travel to North Carolina for a visit with my sister and her family over our spring break, so I had a photo of us ready to use on a layout.

The great thing about my sisters is that even if we haven’t been together for a while we just pick up where we left off and have a great time together.

The Glitz Happy Travels line was perfect for this page. The airplane elements worked great since we flew to see each other. Plus the epoxy stickers said just the right words.

For my second layout today, I used some photo booth photos plus an Instagram photo.

My favorite thing on this page could be the “I Love Your Face” stickers. At first I thought it would be an unusual thing to say, but when I put it with these funny face photo booth photos, they were a perfect match.

There are so many pretty things in the Glitz Pretty in Pink line and I just kept layering them up on this page. My favorite new Glitz product is the 6 X 6 paper pads. The small print and size are perfect for layering up. Plus I feel like I can cut up and use the paper pad because it won’t run out as quickly as my more limited supply of larger paper.

Thanks for stopping by today!
