Happy Thursday, Glitz fan!! Welcome to another day of projects inspired by music from our amazing Glitz designers!! We have three awesome projects to share with you today, so let’s get right to it!
“The Glitz “77” collection includes quite a few song lyrics on the papers and extras. I knew I wanted to use one of them for this week’s project, but I couldn’t decide which direction I wanted to go. Then I remembered this photo of my son playing with our globe and thought the “Oh Baby, It’s a Wild World” card would be perfect with my photo. The lyrics actually tell sort of a sad love story, but the title itself is super versatile and fits with my photo perfectly!
I used my circle punch to punch out the words from the card so I could use it as more of a title accent on my page rather than a journaling card. I kept the focus of the layout at the top of my page with a few smaller elements trickling down to the bottom. My journaling is pretty simple and is handwritten right underneath my photo.”

“To create this weeks music themed project I made the title word with a hot glue gun. For a great peel off effect I used a piece of backing paper to write the words down and add the hot glue. In my opinion it doesn’t have to be perfect. The more inexact the better is the result. After drying I painted a bit of Gesso and antique golden Acrylic Paint. It´s so easy to make all kind of shapes this way in any color you want. Give them a try and you´ll love it! Other layout info: all pieces of paper and embellishments are clustered together in the center of the page, framed by a washi tape border.”
“Music is one of my favorite things ever. Beside scrapbooking , of course *haha*. As a child I learned guitar and 5 years ago I started playing piano. Yes, it´s a hard thing, as a kiddo everything goes faster but I´m totally HAPPY with it.”

“For this week’s assignment, we had to use music for inspiration, so I knew that I wanted to use Carrpe Diem for this layout. It’s soft colors and has the perfect digital stickers to help me convey my message.
I choose the lyrics from “Don’t give up” by Bruno Mars. She’s been going through some real grown up issues so I made this layout for her to remind her that I’m her cheerleader and will always love her and support her.”
