Make It Mini: Craft Time – Eunyoung Lee



Hello~ Glitz fans!! Today I’m here to share  a mini album using tags and ‘carpe diem’ 6X6 paper pad.

This mini album is about craft time with my nieces. They love to play colors.




This is a simple and easy mini album. You need some different sized tags, o-ring and pattern papers.

I trimmed pattern papers into different sized pieces. It is for layered looking.

I glued the pattern paper pieces onto each tag, and sewed them by machine.

I used two color threads (red and white). The thread color is a good embellishment.

On Trend: Geometric Patterns – Lilith Eeckels

I love using geometrical designs on my layouts and while I was browsing through Pinterest I came across this inspiration piece:

I spent quite some time trying to recreate the same design with my silhouette designer software. It isn’t perfect but looks pretty similar. I cut out the shapes and puzzled them all together. I kept the negative cut for a later project.The layout came together really quickly and I kept it really simple as I wanted the design to stand out.

Sparkle & Shine: Mix & Match – Noel Culbertson

Happy Friday Glitz friends! For this week’s Sparkle & Shine feature I decided to do a little mixing and matching with embellishments from four gorgeous Glitz lines. A while back we took a few photos in front of an old aqua colored building we came across on the waterfront.

The striking background in the photos was a natural fit with the colors in the “Felicity” and “Brightside” so I used the 6×6 paper pads from both lines to ground the photos on the white background. I  sifted through my supplies and gathered stickers, Whatnots and rhinestones from four lines that complimented the photos.

Once I’d gathered my coordinating supplies I created four mini vignettes and placed them in a grid pattern on my background cardstock. I stitched on a couple butterflies punched from vellum and added a decorative stitch around two edges.

Day to Day: Baby Life – Raquel Bowman

Today I am here to share with you a layout for the ‘day to day’ series on the Glitz blog. Well, as I mentioned in a previous post, my day to day life became busier 8 weeks ago now with the arrival of my little boy Jack. So I decided to create a layout all about him and scrap a picture which is a good example of his little life right now…. loving a ‘mummy snuggle’.

I decided to have a play with the ’77′ collection as I had not yet created with it and the blue and orange tones of the collection were really calling my name.

Here is the layout I created:

Here is a close up of some of the dimension and layering. I’m a big fan of foam tape and dots, anything to add that extra bit of dimension.

I decided to use my ‘Black & White’ collection giant roller doodle in the ‘X’ design on this page. To create this effect I stamped on a diagonal with versa mark ink. I then used a blue and white embossing powder, I wanted to create a sort of ombre look here. I then set it with my heat tool.

A close up of the journaling which I completed on a card from the ‘Bits and Pieces’ paper, some stickers and my typewriter.

Embellishing with the giant rhinestones and accent stickers made a great little embellishment cluster.

A final close up of my page:

I hope this page has inspired you today. I had a great time documenting a little moment in Jack’s life, I am sure it will be the first of many :)Raquel x

On Trend: Handscripted Title – Stephanie Bryan

Hi there Glitz fans!  Stephanie back with you today to share a fun twist on a current trend!!

Handwritten text and script fonts are super popular now.  I see bits of calligraphy and pretty handwriting scattered all over the internet and Instagram these days.  The best part about script is that you can completely personalize your own projects with your very own handwriting.  I’m not the biggest fan of my handwriting, but I do think it’s fun to add a little “personal” touch to my pages every once in a while.




For my project today, I decided to create a handwritten title to include alongside a photo of my children.  I began by practicing a few different sentences and phrases on a piece of card stock, as well as vellum.  I used a self-inking brush pen that I had on hand.  It works similarly to a paint brush and a bottle of ink, but I love that it’s self-inking and super easy to use!  After a few zillion practices, I decided that I really loved the way the ink looked on the vellum and decided to hand cut my title from the piece of vellum.




I added the title to the left of my photo, overlapping my picture and paper layers.  I chose to stick with very neutral patterns and colors so my bold black title would pop from my page.  I used a piece of the Carpe Diem black dot patterned paper to create a vertical band down my page, and added in a little sparkly washi and a few paper layers as well.




The main focus of my page is the photo of my children and my handwritten title!  And even though I don’t absolutely love my handwriting, I do love that this page is unique and one of a kind!




I included a few epoxy stickers and a giant rhinestone to the right of my photo and paper layers, but continued with the neutral theme to coordinate with my page.




So what about you?  Have you ever tried to create your own handwritten title?

Glitz Design “Carpe Diem” 12×12 Paper: Polka

Cut It Up: Fall cuts – Michelle Wedertz

Hello!  It’s almost officially fall here in the United States and as of lately I have found myself thinking about all things autumn-sweaters, hot cocoa, leaves, pumpkins….so I thought I would challenge myself to create a fall layout for you using Glitz products.

With every layout, I pull out my papers first and try to find ones that will compliment the photo or theme I am trying to convey. Since I knew I wanted to use diecuts, I pulled out the Glitz 6×6 Paper Packs first because I think they are the perfect size for cutting small titles and paper embellishments. Here are the papers I initially pulled out:

 Next, I ran my papers through the Silhouette, cutting both a variety of leaves and a potential title.
And here is a look at what I put together:
By using a kraft background, warm golds, and little bit of navy blue I was able to make my Glitz papers look like they were made for autumn layouts.

Focus on Digital: Brightside

Hey there!  Today our digital team has a couple layouts to share using the Brightside collection.  Check them out!

“This week, I wanted to print on transparency sheets.  To do this, I used transparencies that are made for color inkjet printers.  These sheets has a textured side for the ink to sink into and prevents smudging.  In Photoshop, I opened a few journaling cards and titles that I thought would look great as a transparent element piece.  I then grouped them and printed them onto a transparency.  This is a great way to create your own transparent elements.”

“September means trips to the farmer’s market & apple picking here in NY State. So I took the grey, yellow and black colors of the Brightside collection as my inspiration and used it to scrap an autumn photo of my fave farmer’s market, but with a sleek, modern feel. To achieve that look, I took a few of the elements with pink in it, and simply selected the pinks with my magic wand tool, and then filled with autumn colors to match my photo. ”

Around the House: Cork Frame – Lilith Eeckels

Today I’m up with a home decor project on the Glitz Design blog. I had a whole box of corks lying around and thought I’d make a simple project for the piano area in my home.


I took an old frame and used two 12*12 sheets of paper from the Carpe Diem collection. I then cut out a heart shape with my Silhouette Cameo. I used a hot glue gun to adhere the corks to the circle. Once the heart was formed I glued it to the frame. As finishing touch I added a clothes pin and a sticker from the 77 collection. It is a really easy project to create and you can use any shape. You could also ask for corks in a restaurant.

Sparkle & Shine: Gold Embossing – Stephanie Bryan

Hi there Glitz fans!  Stephanie back with you today to share a little sparkle and shine!  When I think about things that sparkle, I think of two things….the color gold and my sweet daughter!  For this week’s theme, I decided to combine the two to create a sparkly page about my daughter!



My layout all began with the stenciled letter “A”.  I wanted to incorporate it onto the page somehow, but it was just plain old card stock and it really needed to be jazzed up!  I pulled out my embossing gun and gold embossing powder and gave it a little sparkle.  I love the way it almost looks metal!



After my “A” was embossed, I added a few layers to my page, as well as my photo.  I wanted the “A” and my title to be the main pops of color on my page, so I chose some neutral patterned papers from both the Carpe Diem and Brightside lines.  I also tucked in a little piece of lace to add some femininity to the page.



I continued the gold glittery look by spelling out my title “sparkle” in gold letters.  I typed out some sweet words to my daughter on white printer paper, trimmed them out and adhered them to my page by stitching down the middle.  I love how they add a little bit of movement to the page.


I finished my page with a simple cluster of embellishments and card stock die cuts.  The Carpe Diem Giant Rhinestone adds the perfect little hint of sparkle to my page when the light hits it just right!
