Masculine & Travel layouts with Rommel Okuma

Hello Everyone!

How you doing, guys? Today I want to share some inspiration about our challenge. As you know, in June our inspiration is about create somebody in a male style.

So, I created this layout:

I used papers from Vintage Blue collection and embellishements from Vintage Blue and Love Games Collection. I loved to create with this papers and add some contrasting colors. See more details:

I used the expoxy words to create a journaling, writing about Betto. And finally I used a stamp as a title for this layout. I stamped it in a canvas tape.

Below the photo I created some layers using paper layer, paper stripes cutted with border puncher, some chipboard diecuts and an adesive.

Other project I wanna share for this month is one created using Happy Travels papers:

I was in the Rio last month to teach a scrapbook workshop. It was great! After the class I spent some fun moments with friends and to register this moment I made this layout. Of course, Happy Travels whole collection was perfect to it!

I used a spray ink to paint the background with several tones of blue and green. After used spray inks I paint with Pan Pastels to add some shadows. See more details below.

I love to use this frame! And the stamps too!

Oh what a surprise! A Die cut in a Whatnots pack with a vintage advertising about Rio de Janeiro! It’s so perfect to this project!

Handmade Recipe Book with Kristii Lockart

Good morning sweet friends!!!  I have a fun gift idea for you today using Glitz Design Happy Travels Papers!!  I don’t know about you, but when I try new recipes, I’m bad about recording them.  So, I thought it would be fun to make a little cookbook album to store them in.  I’ve had the idea rolling around in my mind for quite a while, but I needed to make a gift for a friend’s wedding and I thought this would be the perfect time to try it out!!  I put my whole heart and soul into the project and I am sooooo happy with the way it turned out!

I used the backside of the Happy Travels Bicycle Paper and the stripe paper to inspire my project.  It was tricky, because the flowers are from the basket on the front side of the paper.  I had to cut very carefully!

I created the title of the book in Photoshop Elements and then lightly stamped chicken wire on the mat and layered it over a couple of the Happy Travels Stickers.  I added a doily, seam binding ribbon and the fussy cut flowers to embellish the front.

I carried the red theme through the rest of the cover:

I learned a lot about Photoshop making the recipe pages:

Let’s just say that the Grid Lines are a wonderful thing!!!  I printed the index tabs on the computer and then cut them by hand since my die only cut a 5 1/2″ wide file tab.

I used journaling stickers and the layered stickers to embellish the matching card,

and stamped the striped paper with the sentiment.

Whew!  What a fun project!  I am so happy I have created a template for the recipe pages!! It won’t take long at all to make Christmas presents this year!!!

Supplies Used:
Glitz Design Happy Travels Papers: Bicycle and Stripe
Glitz Design Happy Travels Stickers:  Titles, Journaling, and Layered
Other Supplies:  Papertrey Ink Kraft Binder: Papertrey Ink Rustic Cream, Simply Chartreuse, and Pure Poppy Cardstock; Papertrey Ink Year of Flowers Stamps: Roses; Papertrey Ink Parisian Lace Doily Die; Seam binding from my stash; Computer Fonts: Simply*Glamorous, Just the Way You Are, Dawning of a New Day.

Thanks for stopping by and I wish you a very Glitzy Day!!!

Husband Love with Camilla Ekman

Hi everybody! Today I want to focus on my dear husband and how special he is. This is my layout about how much I love him. The Happy Travels collection has such gorgeous colours – blue, red and beige. I added a somewhat romantic look by adding the flowers and doilies.

“Love” by Camilla Ekman:
Glitz Happy Travels papers: Planes, Floral, Stripe
Glitz Happy Travels Cardstock Stickers
Glitz Happy Travels Journaling
Other: Flower, alpha and bling lace (Prima), vine (Petaloo), swirl die (Cheery Lynn Designs), border die (Martha Stewart), doilies

The next layout is also made from the Happy Travels collection. I really love the patterns and wanted to add them to a page in squares. The punched white border frames the squares. I love this picture of my children playing with one of their younger cousins. Happiness!

“Adventure” by Camilla Ekman:
Glitz Happy Travels papers: World
Glitz Happy Travels Paper Pad

Masculine Glitz cards with Iwona Palamountain

Hi there! If you haven’t yet took the opportunity to play along with this month’s challenge, I sincerely hope you’ll take time to do so! As always, there’s a chance to win lots of Glitz goodies, and the theme is as follows:

Let’s hear it for the men in our lives! Although it’s a true challenge for many of us (including myself) to create masculine projects, but I strongly believe that Glitz has the product that suits goth genders perfectly well. One of the things I admire about their collections, is that they fit well for just about any theme and occasion. Let me show you some examples…

This card was made entirely with the Pretty In Pink collection (apart from stamping). I put aside the pinks and used the earthy toned papers instead, to compliment the Paper Layer that I used for the base. Glitz also has a variety of amazing stamps, many of which are perfectly masculine, like this clock from Dance In Sunshine set.

Glitz Design “Pretty Ink Pink” papers: Stripe, Polka
Glitz Design “Pretty Ink Pink” Paper Layers
Glitz Design “Dance In Sunshine” Clear Stamps

Other: brown cardstock; string; buttons: Kaisercraft; sentiment stamps: Flourishes; sewing machine; inks: Memento Rich Cocoa & Frayed Burlap Distress Ink

For the next card, I used a cool blue base which I stamped with the grid pattern from Distressing set. It doesn’t show up very well I’m afraid, it’s a very subtle effect. I layered a transparency and stickers from different collections, and some ribbon, to frame the lovely, encouraging message.

Glitz Design “French Kiss” papers: Peek-A-Boo
Glitz Design “Love Games” Journaling Cardstock Stickers
Glitz Design “French Kiss” Titles Cardstock Stickers
Glitz Design “Distressing” Clear Stamps

Other: blue cardstock; sentiment stamp: The Craft’s Meow; ink: Memento Summer Sky & Danube Blue, buttons; twill ribbon

Now it’s your turn to play! Thanks for visiting :)

Best Day Ever with Nicole Martel

Hello everyone. Nicole here. Today I would like to share two masculine layouts with you. For my first layout, I combined the Happy Travels and French Kiss collection to create a fun, masculine layout. I love these colors together. Gliz Design truly has a good eye for good products. I just love them to pieces!
Notice how I cut the star pattern from pattern paper.
I also cut out the little girl from the “Pretty in Pink” cardstock sticker so that I would have just a little boy and a dog in the sticker.
