Sparkle and shine - Glitz Design

Hello and welcome on this "sparkle and shine" friday on my blog. Today I want to show you a new layout using my absolutely favorite Glitz Design collection, the Finnley Collection. I know it´s an older one but I don´t want to hoard this collection all the time because it´s so much fun to create with this stuff.  The focus on my page are laying on the "accent and alpha sticker sheets" It´s such a simple thing to create a kind of embellishment banner with it.
To get a fluffy bright background use some pieces of silk paper folded in squares, layered with some patterned papers on the back. Add those on a white cardstock with some ink splashes and now here comes the fun part.
Peel off a lot of stickers from both sheets and place them around the photo. The tiny word stickers are also fixed with a tiny attacher.
 To have a 3D effect also on those stickers use 3D pads to fix them on your layering.
Thanks for visiting my blog. Have a great weekend, everyone <3 p="">
Used Products:
Glitz Design Finnley Title and Accent Sticker Sheet
Glitz Design Finnley Alphabets and Word Sticker Sheet
Glitz Design Finnley Giant Rhinestones
Glitz Design Finnley Paper Multi Triangle
Other: white cardstock, ink,

Celebrate a girls birthday - Glitz Design

Hello everyone to a new Glitz Design blog project on Thursday. In the next few days my daughter Jonna celebrates her 10th. birthday. Say what?! I can´t believe that the time was running so fast. It´s like yesterday to have her as a newborn for the very first time hold in my arms.... 

To celebrate this birthday something special I created a gift table some with self-made circle garland  using lots of bright pinks, blues and greens. It´s a fast and simple way to make a decoration in less than 15 minutes. All you need is patterned paper (that´s a great way to use older scraps) a circle punch (I used two sizes) and a sewing machine. Cut as much circles you want to habe in your garland and sew them one after another. For this wall and frame I made 3 garlands.

The same procedure for the gift packaging. It´s such an easy but beautiful thing to brighten up your gift packaging, isn´t it?

Used Products:

Glitz Design "Felicity" 6x6 Paper Pad
Glitz Design "Felicity" Bits &Pieces 12x12 Paper
Glitz Design "Brightside" 6x6 Paper Pad
Glitz Design  Washi Tapes
Glitz Design "Brightside" Accents & Sticker Sheet
Other: White Cardstock, Bow, Embossing Powder, Paint

My Minds Eye June Sketch Challenge

Yesterday I saw on the the MME blog the new June sketch and what should I say?! There are small photos, there are lots of banners and little embellishments. This sketch is sooooo lovely and I could´t resist. So here is my layout based on the June MME sketch. I used lots of gold and pastel colors, all from the new Market Street Collection. This stuff is fantastic! Hope you like it, guys....

Glitz Design - On Trend Video

Hello everyone. In the last time it was a huge trend to add any kind of calligraphy onto pages, mini books or cards. I love this kind of handwriting things too, so I thought it would be a fun thing to use the lovely calligraphy card from the 77 collection Whatnots package as the focus of my page.

Glitz Design - Clean and Simple layout

This weeks all DT gals share on the Glitz Design Blog projects to the "clean and simple" theme and I´m up on this friday. The theme is one of my favorite ever because deep in my heart I´m a clean and simple page lover. I love to set the focus on the cute background paper and the picture, layered with white silk paper, feather, paper doilie and some embellishments like the sweet pink squirrel. This makes everything so airy and fluffy. To complete the page I stamped the “hello” speech bubble, added strips of washi tapes on the bottom and top and a green twine loop.”
“Hello” Supply List: 
Glitz Design “Carpe Diem” Whatnots
Glitz Design Washi Tapes
Glitz Design “Carpe Diem” Paper Squirrels

Be Inspired....

Hi there, today I´m up on the Citrus Twist Kits blog with a new "Be Inspired" post. 
It´s no secret that I´m addicted to frames and also butterflies. I´m always on the run to find great new inspirations and mood boards like this one.  Normally I don´t use often the color black for backgrounds of my pages because I love the bright airy look. But if I got the kit with those chalk black and black dotted paper I knew I would like to give them a try. And I like the result. Sometimes it´s great to leave your own comfort zone, right?!
Behind the Insta frame I add again a piece of the black chalk paper. The butterfly is made with a die and my Big Shot machine.  I used acrylic painted white cardstock and transparency paper (both included in the kit) to make this 3D butterfly shape. The phrase is stamped with the Citrus Twist Kits Stamp Set....
Products used:
April Main Scrapbook Kit
April Embellishment Kit

From my stash: Acrylic Paint, A piece of a paper doilie, sewing machine....

Kits de Somni - Color of the month

Every month the Kits de Somni design team share their layouts based on the "Color of the month". In April we have a beautiful combination of beige, orange, navy blue, turquoise, and soft pink. It´s a beautiful spring color scheme and I created this page....

It´s a great feeling when the days are much more warmer and the spring air smells really good. Plus I have a special relationship with butterflies (something to personal to talk about it here, but they mean a lot to me....) and it´s my favorite time of the year to see after winter flying butterflies everywhere. And just like this they landed directly on my page ;-)
Have a great day, everyone.....

DIY - Creative Mood Board with Glitz Design

Are you ready for a simple DIY mood board? 
When I got the box full of Glitz Design goodies I knew it would be fun to create an own studio moodboard with the new “77″ collection. I´m just in love with all these cute prints from the Whatnots package, so it was near to give them a new home.
As the base I used an IKEA frame called “Virserum” in the size of  15×19“. The wooden background of the frame is painted with white acrylic paint using a sponge brush. To get the vintage wooden look apply the paint careful in one direction, note that less is more.
Let it dry well before adding the painted background into the frame. I don´t use the pane for it, but this is optional. Both would work great.
Choose different prints from the Whatnots package and add them with washi tapes directly onto the painted background…..

And now tell me, who finds the little mistake on my board? I´m curious ;-)

Supply List: 
Glitz Design “77″ Whatnots
Glitz Design “77″ Washi Tapes
Glitz Design “Black & White” Washi Tapes
Glitz Design “Carpe Diem” Washi Tapes
Glitz Design “All Dolled Up” Washi Tapes
Other: Frame by IKEA, white acrylic paint (Schmincke Colors)

Glitz Design - Carpe Diem

Happy friday to everyone. Today I´m on the Glitz Design blog with a color challenge layout using light pink, light blue, white and gold. Guess what? It´s such a LOVELY combination.....
To create this weeks project I used the new Collection “Carpe Diem” for the very first time.  It works perfect with the color scheme of pink, blue and white and I love the bright modern style of it. The focus of the page is laying on the big square b/w photo as well as on the paper doilie with embellishment layering. It´s such an easy way to give pages something special….”
