{citrus twist - simple strategies}

Hi there! Today I'm sharing a layout with you using January's main scrapbook kit from Citrus Twist as well as the embellishment add-on.

My simple strategy for today is to use a whole sheet of alphas. For this page, I decided to use the alpha stickers from the add-on and cover them with a sheet of vellum on my backgound.

The result is a unique look that will make your page stand out! Hope you've been inspired today. Thanks for stopping by!

{oh hello sister - glitz designs}

Hey there! This week on the Glitz Blog we are sharing our projects with the Bits & Pieces cards. These cards are perfect for PL but I decided to make a layout this week.

For this layout I wanted to make the Wild & Free bits & pieces the star of the show. I started out with this awesome black and white patterned heart paper from the collection and laid a piece of vellum over the top to tone it down a bit. I fit my cards together, layering and stitching to add texture. I also used a few cut files including the awesome Glitz ampersand available in the Silhouette store!

 Thanks for stopping by today!

I used lot's of Elle's Studio goodness on this spread, as well as some Studio Calico.

Hopefully I've given you a little inspiration to get started on your 2014 album! And if you've been looking for those wood veneer stars.....keep your eyes on the shop for an update :)

{glitz design - snow love}

Hey guys! Today I am excited to be sharing my very first Glitz Design post with you all! I used a combination of Finnley and Wild & Free for this layout. Our assignment was to create a page about winter.

I thought the deer head die cut would coordinate nicely with the colors and theme. I added some rhinestones and sequins to complete the page.

I used my tablet to draw out the word "snow" then cut this with my die cutting machine using black cardstock. 

Thanks for stopping by, have a great day!
