Step by Step Saturday with Teresa Kline

Welcome to the weekend friends!  I know it is only nearing the end of September, but it is not to early to think about Christmas!

I have started with a traditional shape for my tag using the French Kiss striped designer paper.  The stripes remind me of Christmas.  There is nothing like burlap at Christmas too, it reminds me of the days gone by when packages where wrapped in kraft paper and tied with burlap twine…luv!

I cut out the star base using Joyeux Noel polka dotted paper another favorite of mine all the time, not just Christmas!  I have stained the edges to make it a little more bolder.  During the sponging a small piece of my star came off, it gives it the shabby look I luv..*grin*

I sponged also around the tag shape to also give it a more bold look.  It is amazing how adding a little ink to the edges of your element makes it pop!

I like to lay my elements out on my work table and position and reposition, this is such a fun part of the creating process!

Here I have added the gorgeous Giant Rhinestones to the center of my stars; nothing like burlap and bling…totally luv!  I have placed the sentiment tag on my table looking for the perfect placement…teehehe.

Here is the finished tag, I added a tiny clip, the seam binding ribbon and burlap string.  All I need now is the perfect Christmas gift.  There you have it a step x step Christmas tag, go ahead and make one today, it’s really not to early!

Supplies Used:
Glitz Design Paper: French Kiss
Glitz Design Paper:  Joyeux Noel
Glitz Giant Rhinestone: Aqua, Clear, Red

Have a wonderful day, be sure to sprinkle it with a little glitz!

Sweet Cards with Teresa Kline

Good morning friends, I am sharing a couple of cards I put together using some of my favorite Glitz products.  I adore the paper, the cardstock stickers, and the giant rhinestones….I cannot get enough of them!

I put this card together fairly quickly, using the cardstock sticker and popping it up on pop dots to give depth.  I added another favorite of mine, vintage lace and seam binding ribbon- so sweet.  I added the teeny alpha to make the little banner spelling out the word “smile”…such cuteness.

Supplies Used:
Glitz Design Paper: Happy Trials
Glitz Card Stock Stickers: French Kiss Titles
Glitz Design Giant Rhinestones:  French Kiss
Glitz Design Tenny Alphas:  Charcoal

For my second card, it is a sweetly romantic or anniversary card.  I used the awesome Glitzers for the main panel.  I adhere them to a layered scalloped circle and then added another layer using a cardstock Whatnot.

I spritzed the doily with ink, added stitching, a rounded corner, and a couple of pieces of washi tape.  a lot more tiny details in this card, as you know I am all about the details.  I hope you were inspired today by my creations, thanks so much for stopping by!

Have a wonderful day, be sure to sprinkle it with a little Glitz!

Step by Step Saturday with Kristii Lockart

Happy Saturday sweet friends!!!  Today’s post is all about using what you have around the house to create seasonal decorations!

I have a whole box of blocks that have been sitting around waiting for grand kids to play with them.  Since grand kids aren’t in our near future, I’m going to use the blocks to create some fun seasonal decorations.  The blocks started out like this:

I used Glitz Design’s Happy Travels Digital Papers Kit for this project. They are some of my all time favorite papers and now that they’ve gone digital, there are so many more possibilities.

I used Photoshop Elements to add an orange tint to the papers:

  1. Click Enhance
  2. Click Adjust Color
  3. Move the hue slider to the right until you find the color you’re looking for
  4. Resize the paper to 6×6
  5. Print
After printing the papers, I trimmed them slightly smaller than the blocks.  I brushed Tim Holtz’ Rock Candy Distress Crackle Paint onto each of the papers and allowed them to dry.  After the papers were dry, I ran an embossing gun over the dried papers just to flatten each out so they would be smooth and ready to glue to the blocks.  Then I worked distress ink into the cracks to make them stand out a bit more.

I glued the papers to the blocks with Zip Dry, so that I could remove the papers from the blocks easily (just in case I want to use the blocks for the next holiday or if grandchildren are on the way…a  girl can always dream….lol!!!)

I embellished each pumpkin with some stamped leaves, ribbon, twine and some rust colored Excelsior.

My sweet hubby cut a tree branch into 1 – 2 inch pieces for the pumpkin stems and I just love the look!

Such a fast and easy way to make fun seasonal decorations!  I hope I’ve inspired you to create a seasonal project using items from around your house!! It’s fun and economical too!!
Supplies Used:
Glitz Design Happy Travels Digital Paper Kit
Other supplies: Wood Blocks; Papertrey Ink Leaf Prints Stamp Set; Papertrey Ink Rustic Cream Cardstock and Ribbon; Tree Branch; Tim Holtz Distress Ink, Papertrey Ink Pure Poppy and Harvest Gold Ink; Excelsior

Wishing you a very Glitzy Day!!!

Matching Cards & Gift Bags with Laurie Schmidlin

Hi Glitz fans, Laurie here and it’s my turn again to share what I’ve been creating using my yummy Glitz goodies!  :-)

It’s no secret…I love cards!  I love to make them and I love to give them away!  Sometimes, a simple envelope just doesn’t seem like enough to package a card you’ve spent time and love creating.  So, while looking through my stash I came across some kraft “bakery” bags.  If you don’t have any of these, don’t worry!  You could make your own with some paper.

GD Dance in Sunshine Card & Packaging

I chose an already patterned bag and dressed it up using several Dance in Sunshine goodies:  two different patterned papers, Epoxy Words, a Peek-A-Boo, Cardstock Stickers, & a Giant Rhinestone.

GD You Matter

Here’s a photo of the card that I created to go into the matching bag.  I used coordinating papers and embellishments.  I think this card would be perfect for a birthday or even a thank you card!

GD Vintage Blue Card & Packaging

For my second project, I made…another card and matching bag!  I was having too much fun to stop.  :-)  This time, I broke into my Vintage Blue collection (with some Dance in Sunshine thrown in for good measure).   Here’s a tip for you card makers out there.  When one of the Whatnots are too big to fit onto a standard card, don’t be afraid to cut them down!  That’s what I did with the heart garland above!  In fact, this is the “leftover” from a previous project.  I thought it fit perfectly in the corner and is in keeping with the eclectic collage type look I was going for.  :-)

GD You are My Song

Again, I kept my card design similar to the matching bag using products from both the Vintage Blue and Dance in Sunshine collections.

I’m so glad you joined me here today!  I hope I have inspired you to try out some fun, new card packaging!

Celebrations & Travel with Lisa Andrews

A couple of months ago my siblings and I threw a surprise 40th anniversary party for our parents. We has so much fun planning the party and we were rewarded with completely surprising our parents at the party. I have tons of pictures from that night and I’ve finally printed off a few of the pictures for a layout.

These Glitz Design papers were perfect for my page. I love the bright, cheery and party feel from the Pretty in Pink line. It’s perfect for documenting a celebration!

For a little added dimension on the page, I sewed some tulle to the page and then sewed the photos on top of the tulle.

For my second layout today, I have a page documenting a visit to Jockey’s Ridge Sand Dunes while we were visiting my sister and North Carolina. I’ve been want to use the arm/heart picture for a while and I was happy to use it on this page.

I mixed several different Glitz Designs line on this page. I love how their different lines can coordinate so well. For now, I only have the Cashmere Dame 6 X 6 Paper Pad, but I really wanted to use this line on my page. I used smaller pieces of the paper in little groupings around the page since I didn’t have any big pieces of paper.

The hexagons were leftover from a layout I did a few months ago, but I held onto the little hexagons because I knew they would eventually be put to good use.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Shaping Up for Fall with Kristii Lockart

Happy September sweet friends!!  I’m so excited for fall and all the changes the season brings!!  I decided to celebrate the change of seasons by making some fun, fall shaped cards!!
The first card uses a scalloped card created with the Glitz Designs Happy Travels line and the Wild Card Cricut Cartridge set at 4 3/4 inches.
I die cut several leaves from Happy Travels patterned papers and felt and layered them on top of a die cut doily. I also used some Glitzers from the Glitz Design Happy Travels collection. They add a little sparkle and a lot of fun to any little project!!  I printed out a sweet little bird from the Graphics Fairy and added him to the sweet little fall scene and added a little stamped double-ended banner for the sentiment.

I layered the paper leaves and felt leaves and stitched them together with a long stitch.  I folded the leaves to add some texture and fun to the card.

Supplies Used:
Glitz Design Happy Travels 6×6 Paper Pad
Glitz Design Happy Travels Glitzer
Other Supplies:  Papertrey Ink Rustic Cream Cardstock, Ribbon and Felt; Papertrey Ink Parisian Lace Doily Die; Prickley Pear Fall Leaves Dies; Bird Graphic from the Graphics Fairy

In my second card I used the Glitz Design French Kiss line along with the Shape-Up Series Pumpkin Die by Papertrey Ink.

I die cut the back of the French Kiss Stripe paper using Papertrey Ink Pumpkin Sections, and I die cut the base of the pumpkin using the French Kiss Floral paper.  I really liked the negative image from the sections , so I used that image instead.  I die cut several leaves and rolled a felt flower to embellish.

Supplies used:
Glitz Design French Kiss Floral Patterned Paper
Glitz Design French Kiss Stripe Patterned Paper
Other Supplies:  Papertrey Ink Rustic Cream Cardstock, felt and twine; Papertrey Ink Melon Berry Felt, Papertrey Ink Autumn Acorns Stamp Set; Hand Dyed Seam Binding; Recollections Pearl
