She's a Dreamer

Hey friends!  Missy here today, and I have a very fun and bright layout to share.  I wasn't sure what I wanted to create for my project, so I picked up a Jane Davenport patterned paper pad and was instantly inspired by all the gorgeous colors and abstract designs.  I decided to create a messy and artsy background using lots of Shimmerz goodies and some circles punched from paper.

I started with a white cardstock background.  After punching all the circles and seeing what colors I had to work with, I selected several Shimmerz products to create my background.  I used Coloringz Pink Stilettos and No Yoking with some plastic packaging and smushed the color down.  Then I directly sprayed some Vibez Jeni B Bleu onto the page.  I love how it sort of turned into a color blocking design.  To add in more shades of pink, I used a palette knife and some Paste-eez Raspberry Sherbet on top of the base pink.  I also sprayed some Vibez Cold As Ice and Coloringz Heidi Ho Blue for some blue variation.

I really love how bright and colorful this turned out!  I randomly adhered the circles after the background dried and then pulled some Bella Blvd puffy stickers and some sequins from SpiegelMom Scraps.  I also added some coordinating threads under my photo.  I even attached some circles on to of the photo since I had some open space.

I love the tone-on-tone colors here with the background and the circles.  I added lots of matching splatters after the circles were down.  For my title, I combined some older American Crafts white alphas with a fussy cut word from a Dear Lizzy paper (the Lovely Day collection).  I added some journaling under the title using an Illustrated Faith pen.

I did try and add in this deep reddish-pink color mixing some AcriTonez together (Pinkadelic, Roses Are Red & 3 Sheets to the Wind) and smudging it through a circle stencil.  It didn't turn out like I hoped, but I added some water and dabbed it with a paper towel and it turned out okay.  I love that deep color, and it matched the circles & stickers perfectly!

I did do a bit of machine stitching here.  I used a few strips of the Jane Davenport washi tape down here at the bottom and added a Bella Blvd sticker.

I also embellished with some older Simple Stories stickers.  I think this blue may be my favorite color!

I hope this inspires you to be inspired by your papers or embellishments.  Try creating a layout "from scratch" and build your own background.  Shimmerz are perfect for that, and there are so many colors to choose from!

Here's my process video if you'd like to see how I created this.

Thanks so much for stopping by!!

Grateful | Adrienne Alvis

Hey, everyone! I had a great photo of me and my kiddos that was taken this past Mother's Day that I couldn't wait to scrap!

To begin, I used some Dazzlerz in Red-iculous and a heart stencil from my stash to create the slightly shimmering textured hearts on my background paper.

Next, I used the colors in the photo for my color scheme inspiration and chose some Coloringz spray inks from Shimmerz in Oh Say Can U Sea, Night Moves, and Mamma Sings the Blues to add some mist to my layout. I just lightly sprayed the Oh Say Can U Sea Coloringz spray paint on top of the texture paste once it was dry.

I added ink splatters in the Night Moves, a gorgeous matte black, and some in Mamma Sings the Blues for an added cool tone. I embellished my layout using some gold puffy hearts and black accents to coordinate with my overall color scheme.

I love how the hearts just pop off of the page, don't you? Thanks for stopping by today! I hope the rest of your week is lovely!

Today is Full of Possibilities by Astrid

Hello Shimmerz friends, thanks for dropping in! Today I have a tag card to share with you:
The outside was created by adding texture paste through various stencils, a thick layer of gesso and then adding colour with a combination of Distress Oxides and Shimmerz, using the following products:
Coloringz: No Yoking
Vibez Palm Reader
Vibez Jeni B Bleu
InkLingz : Tarnished Treasure
I love how the shimmering sprays work together with the Oxide Inks and how they puddle and pool in between the textures created with the texture paste.
Here is the inside of the card:
The die cuts on the tags where partly coloured with the sprays as well, the stencilling in the background was done with the Tarnished Treasure paint and a blending tool. I love the subtle shimmer it gives....

Well, that's it for today, thanks for your visit like always! And don't forget our incentives programme:

Eat Cake Layout | Katty Miranda

Hello friends! Katty here to share another 12x12 scrapbook layout. I am scrapbooking a photo my mom's birthday. She is posing with my two boys, nice and nephew. We must have taken 75 of the same picture and in every photo someone was looking away or making a crazy face, lol. This is one of the few where everyone looks decent.

I began with white cardstock. I added gesso to the back. I used Coloringz in Pink Stilettos and No Yoking in the background. I sprayed directly on and I used the packaging technique as well. 

Once dry, I used a Prima floral stencil and the Paste-eez dimensional paste in Raspberry Sherbet. I also added some splatters with the mists. 

I placed my photo in the center and used chipboard birthday themed embellishments from a Dear Lizzy chipboard pack. I even created a cluster of balloons. 

I wanted to add some of the mint color from the chipboard so I added another Coloringz in Oh Say Can You Sea using the packaging technique. I also added a border of yellow patterned paper around the whole page. I love how it turned out. 

Products Used:
Coloringz: Pink Stilettos, No Yoking, Oh Say Can You See
Paste-eez: Raspberry Sherbert

Another vintage photo with Karine

My dear crafty souls,

I hope this post finds you well. I'm here on the blog today to share my most recent layout. Recently, I found some old pictures of my dad and his family. Don't you think he is handsome? :)


I went for a soft color combo on this one. I thought it matched the picture well.

On my background, I used The Cream Team Paste-Eez with a grid stencil.

I used Tuscan Sun, Bamboo Leaf and Caribbean Sunset Spritz and Keep Palm Coloringz, making drops with each color and drying before adding another one.

I used chipboards, flowers and die cuts to embellish.
