super fun glitz stuff at work
I set out to make a project with some of the very cool new Glitz products. I love making mini albums and this little black board book was calling my name. I thought it would work perfectly with all of the fun bright colors of Glitzy goodness. There are so many great ways to use these products… so I decided to list just a few fun ways with each of the pictures of the album.
First off, I have to say how much I’m in love with these new rub-ons! Did you know the black on these rub-ons is a shiny black… like patten leather shoes shiny black? It is so fun! I have grand plans for using these extra large rub-ons on layouts… I seriously can’t wait!
Another super cool Glitz addition… ROLLER DOODLES!!! These are a blast. I wish the picture showed it off better, but I rolled the flower Roller Doodle in VersaMark ink then heat embossed it with clear embossing powder right onto the cover of the mini album. It was a really fun way to add that little something extra without distracting from the main focus. Here’s a little tip if you’re looking to cover a background with lots of doodle-ie fun… instead of rolling in horizontal or vertical direction, try rolling onto your paper on the diagonal. It’s a lot harder to tell if your lines are straight or wobbly if it’s rolled on the diagonal!
Another thing I love about Glitz… their digital elements. They coordinate and enhance their paper products perfectly. On this page (and the cover) I took the damask print you probably recognize from the ultra chic Hot Mama line, converted it to blue in Photoshop, and printed it right onto some pearlescent paper. The result, is full of shiny chic fun!
Oh the happy thoughts that come to mind when someone says frosting. The chocolate gooey sugar shock version makes my pants feel tighter… but the Glitz has the only ZERO CALORIE option out there! I love how the frosting is mold-able into any shape. Here it’s formed into a circle. No more sadness over being out of that perfect sized or shape bling element… we’ve gone D.I.Y.!
The owl paper was made using another Glitz digital element printed on pearlescent paper.
My favorite flourishes… they make my heart all melty. These were cut down from their original size to work as an accent with the flower. Can you spot the roller doodle appearance on this page? There will be another picture of it up close coming up…
The last page of this little mini book… some more fun with arrows and rub-ons. The grid rub-on was cut down from it’s original, as was the flourish. The flower was punched so the cute little strawberry would be right in the center of the flower.
A close up of how you can shape the frosting into your own custom arrangements. The 5 is stamped with the Roller Doodle and punched out to show my little sweetie’s age at the time. The stitched swirly line is a Glitz rub-on.
And that’s a wrap! If you have any questions about any of the products or techniques, please leave a comment. I’ll be glad to answer! Thanks for putting up with a silly girl who has clearly not had enough coffee yet this morning!
