Step By Step Saturday (Valentine’s Edition) with Gerry Van Gent

Hello Glitz Friends!
This is Gerry here today and I`d love to share with you
how I created a Valentine card using the gorgeous and so
beautiful “Love You Madly” collection.
{LOVE YOU MADLY} collection
INSTRUCTIONS:

STEP 1:
  • Use the beautiful frame from the “Peek-A-Boos” and cut out the rectangle in the middle.
STEP 2:
  • Use 12″x12″ white cardstock to outline the shape of the Peek-A-Boo Frame
  • Outline once again the frame but this time exactly above the other one.
  • You`ll fold the card in the middle (see photo below)
  • Ink the edges of the card, adhere the Peek-A-Boo on top
  • Optional: Hand-stitch a rectangle along the edges of the middle frame
  • Cut a rectangle from “Ampersand” pattern paper with size approx. 2.5″ x 4.5″ and adhere in the centre.
STEP 3:
  • Use your favourite die cut stencil (e.g. with swirls) and your favourite circle punch or die cut stencil. You need these die-cuts for your layering.
STEP 4:
  • Use the rubber stamps “Love you Madly” – Nr 1 & Nr 4 – and stamp on a piece of white cardstock. I used the same color ink as the inked edges of the card.
  • Once you are ready with the stamping cut the numbers 1 & 4 out
  • Outline the edges with a black pen (with a fine point)
STEP 5:
  • Now you can begin your layering.
  • Place the die-cuts on top of one another
  • Choose your favorite Giant Rhinestone from “Love you Madly” collection and adhere in the centre of your top layer.
  • Use twine or string to make a bow
 I Hope you enjoyed my card tutorial today!
Have a Glitzy weekend!

You & Me layouts with Noel Culbertson


Hello friends, happy day-after-Valentine’s Day! Continuing on with the season of love, I have a couple layouts to share with the fabulous Love You Madly line. I love the chalkboard feel of these designs, and of course, the fabulous color palette. 



I have taken a picture of my girls kissing this from every year since they were knee high. The frog has not yet turned into a prince, but he does draw out spontaneous eruptions of giggling.

Love of Family with Camilla Ekman


Hi everybody! Camilla here on Valentine’s Day. I have two LOVEly projects to share with you. And for these projects I have used the Love You Madly collection. For me my family is everything and this love is worth celebrating.
First a layout for my wonderful husband. I built a photo mat using both a cut-out frame, some Whatnots, a Peek-A-Boo and a Paper Layer. I wanted to keep the masculine tone in it so I just added a few blue flowers.

“Love of my life” by Camilla Ekman:

Then I made a layout for my sweet children. They are growing up so fast. I layered different goodies from Glitz and added a few flowers to some richer red.

Teeny Alpha Sentiments with Teresa Kline

 

It is time for more Glitz, girls!  I am luvin the Love You Madly collection and I am sharing a couple of creations that I have put together!

I adore all the Glitz collections so many options to choose from; stamps, tape, journaling stickers, the teeny alphas (my favorite…grin) and many more.  On my first card I have used the sweet pink paper layers sheet and added the teeny alpha for my sentiment.  The tag is a what not, and the sweet lace circle is the roller doodle…cute!  I added a tape, flower, stitching, and lace to bring it all together!

 

Supplies Used:
Glitz Designer Paper: Love You Madly
Glitz Stamps: Love You Madly
Glitz Tape: Hello Friend Coral Polka
Glitz What Nots: Love You Madly
Glitz Roller Doodle: Love You Madly Lace
Glitz Teeny Alphas: Love You Madly Navy

I decided to make a set of sweet notecards, I adore these!  They are perfect for your children’s lunch boxes, your husband coat pocket, the mail person, or a friend at work or church.

 

They are easy and simple to make and they give so much to the recipient!  I have made these 3×3, I used the Love You Madly navy paper for the bottom part, I then added the tape strips.  The little sentiment box is stamped from the Love You Madly stamp set and yes, I used my favorite teeny alphas for the individual sentiments!

 

I hope that you where inspired to create today and share your luv of creating with someone and give a little treat!  Hope your Valentines Day is full of love!

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

A Valentine Shadowbox & card with Karola Witczak

 

Hello Glitz Design Fans! It’s Karola here with new inspiration, the first in this week. I strongly encourage you to visit us everyday, because our team prepared lots of amazing inspirations and this week we working with stunning Love You Madly collection!
For my today’s post I made something different than I shared with you previously. This time I used Glitz Design products to create an altered object and I made a shadowbox with my sweet daughter in the main role.
For the base I used a set of “Configurations” boxes and altered them using lots of Love You Madly supplies. I started with covering the outside of the boxes and it turned out that the Love You Madly Washi Tapes were absolutely perfect for it! This way decorating was very easy! For decorating the inside of each box I used pieces from LYM – Hello 12 x 12 paper.
As you probably know – I am permanently in love with Glitz products such as Whatnots, Peek-A-Boos and stickers. I cut out some motifs & sentences, added Giant Rhinestones, flowers and paper elements which I prepared using dies and… believe me, I had so much fun with decorating each small box. Here are more close-ups:
Because I made this home decor for myself, I had to create something for my hubby, right? :)
I decided to create a simple “masculine” card, but… nobody’s perfect and I am not very good with masculine kind of projects :) Combining patterned papers and Whatnots from Love You Madly, I made card you can see below. I know hubby will appreciate these flowers and doilies, the most important message is on the center – a pink scalloped circle cut out using die from one of Love you Madly Whatnots! Love this typography!

Step By Step Saturday with Lisa Andrews

With Valentine’s Day coming next week, I though it would be fun to create a few treat holders to hold some sweet treats.

The Glitz Designs Love You Madly line was a perfect starting place for the treat holders. I love the pink and grey color combo of this line!

I want to share two different treat holder designs that are quick and fun.

First up is the Fortune Teller Treat Holder:

Did you make these little fortune tellers as a kid? They are really easy and when flipped upside down, they make four little pockets that perfectly hold small treats. If you need to brush up on making fortune tellers, this link will help you!

 

 

Once you’ve made the fortune teller (I recommend starting with either a 6″ or 8″ square), then you poke a hole in the center and stick a straw or stick through the hole.
I embellished the top of each straw. That’s it! I think these would make really cute place settings. The paper garlands were my favorite accent on these little treat holders.
I’d like to share one more quick treat holder with you today. I’m thinking this would be perfect for dressing up a Valentine treat in a lunch box or making a Valentine a little more special for a friend.
1. Start off with a square piece of paper. I used an 8″ square paper.
2. Fold the paper in half diagonally so that you have a triangle.
3. Fold the right bottom corner of the triangle over to the left side.
4. Then fold the bottom left corner over.
5. Fold the top layer of the top point down.
6. Add some adhesive to make sure the little pocket will stay together. Then embellish.
7. Finish off the treat pocket with something sweet!
Hope you enjoy these ideas! Do you like to do Valentine crafting? Do you plan on making some Valentines?

Washi Butterflies & Banners with Kristii Lockart

Good morning sweet friends!!  It’s time for some Washi Tape madness with Glitz Design!!
I have two cards for you today that feature embellishments made with Glitz Design Washi Tape!!  Who would’ve thought you could have so much fun with Washi Tape.  The colors and designs are so fun and add so much color and interest to your projects!!

 

In this first card, I die cut some butterflies using some gorgeous Love You Madly Lace Washi Tape.  I adhered two pieces of Washi Tape to some cardstock.  Then centered the die on the seam of the two pieces of tape and die-cut as usual.

I totally love the way the die cuts turn out!! What a fun embellishment!

I cut several layers from the papers and layered them together and then I added a Cardstock Titles Sticker.  Then I added some rolled flowers, pearls and hand dyed seam binding.  The sentiment was fussy cut from the Uncharted Waters Bits and Pieces paper.

In the next card I made some quick and easy banners out of the Washi Tape to use as embellishments.

The Washi Tape Banners add a nice little pop of color to the card.  Just a little snip or two and you have an instant banner that dresses up the whole card.

I added the cute little Peek a Boo banner to compliment the Washi Tape banner and I am totally loving all the color!!  There are so many fun pieces in the Uncharted Waters line!! I love them all!

Supplies Used:
Glitz Design Uncharted Waters Patterned Papers: Waves, Scallop, and Bits and Pieces
Glitz Design Uncharted Waters Cardstock Stickers: Journaling and Titles
Glitz Design Uncharted Waters Peek A Boos
Glitz Design Uncharted Waters What Nots
