I Love Today Scrapbook Layout | Katty Miranda

Hello friends! Katty here to share a scrapbook layout with you all. I am scrapbooking  a photo of myself. I recently started my own business and this picture just expresses how I feel in the clothing I'm selling. I decided to create a fun and simple background.

I began with scribbly floral cut file. I placed it on top of a white piece of carsdstock. I used Several Coloringz in Mandarin Mai Tai, Well Blue me Down and Peachy Keen. I also used a Spritz in Saphire, a Vibez in Sweet Heart and a Creameez in Sky's the Limit. For the Creameez, I watered it down and added it to a small spray bottle to get the same mist effect as with the other colors. 
I then used the misted cut file itself on top of the white cardstock. I slightly offset the cut file so that it was not directly over the misted area. I love the look this created. So simple and so fun.
I used a teal stripped transparency as a layer behind my photo. It makes my photo stand our over all of these gorgeous colors. 
I used black foam thickers for my tittle. I also scattered around some foam hearts and stars. I chose not to embellish any further, The fun bright colors were enough embellishment for me.

Products Used:
Coloringz: Peachy Keen, Well Blue me Down, Mandarin Mai Tai
Spritz: Saphire
Vibzs: Sweetheart
Creameez: Sky's the Limit

Joy Canvas with Shona

Hello Shimmerz fans!! Today I have a fun mixed media canvas to share. How I love to create a girly grungy project! I am going to give this one to my cutie pie grand daughter.

For the background I started with some stencil work with Salt of the Earth Paste-eez…perfect for added texture.

After the canvas was put together it was time to add some gorgeous Shimmerz colors…I used Chocolate Brownie and Mama Sings the Blues Coloringz.

Finish it all off with some splatters of Penny 4 Your Thoughts Inklingz.

Shimmery team up with sweet florals

Hi Everyone, Beck Beattie here today with a sweet card share.  I had lots of fun creating this card so I'm even going to take you though it!

Shimmerz Products Used:
Shimmerz Creameez - Tripin in the Tropics
Shimmerz Creameez - Green Acres

I thought I would take you through the process of creating my card today.

To start I added a little gesso to the pink card base with my finger.

I also die cut 3 of these vine circles from the white glitter cardstock.  It die cuts so well and is a really neat way to use glitter cardstock as it adds the most beautiful accent to your projects in this way.  It is probably my favourite way to use glitter cardstock!

Next I took some die cut leaves and gave them a coat of my Shimmerz Creameez paint in Green Acres and allowed them to dry.

I also added some Shimmerz Creameez to my background by splattering and then softening the splatter with a pice of plastic.  

I also added a little green splatter to the background in the same colour Creameez added to the leaves.

I didn't want such a large sentiment for this card so I decided to cut the sentiment strip up and add it in two parts to finish my card.
Here are some more pics of my sweet card:

I Hope you enjoyed my share today.

Happy Crafting!

Friendship card with Astrid

Hello lovely Shimmerz friends, - today I have a card to share celebrating friendship.

The card is made with two different panels and here is the list of products I used:
Inklingz: Meet me @ Sunset, Miner Miner 49er Penny 4 Your Thought and Tarnished Treasure.
Creameez: Sage It Isn't So
Vibez: Egg Noggin
Coloringz: Chocolate Brownee
Spritz: Olive Branch, Treasured Hymn
For the dark background panel I used Kraft card and painted it first with Penny 4 Your Thoughts. Then I used Tarnished Treasure through a stencil to add a bit of variation.

The central panel was dry embossed with an embossing folder and then colour was added with the help of the paints and sprays.
The large leave cut and embossed with the Tim Holtz layered leaf die and embossing folder was first painted with Sage Is N't So and then I added some Olive Branch Spritz for a bit more variation.
The little wooden butterflies were first stamped with a script stamp in Archival ink and then coloured with Miner Miner 49ner and then darkened with Penny 4 Your Thoughts and Tarnished Treasure.
The friends label was just a little embellishment from my stash...
Well, that's it pretty much, - hope you like my card and of course, - thanks for your visit like always!
And if you decide to order some of the lovely Shimmerz products from the store

Trouble maker by Anna Komenda

Hello everyone. It's Anna here with my July inspiration. I made another girly page in juicy colors. I love combination of yellow and pink and I use it quite often in my projects. They are a perfect match for my younger daughter. She is such a cutie but she is also very bossy, always has her own opinion and she is not easy to cooperate. My older daughter was always such a graceful child, easy to work with so the contrast between them two is quite a shock for me :D 

I used Aqua Huez and creameez to create one part of the background. I also used white Paste-eez for the first time and I just love how it works with the stencils. The details are so nicely highlighted. It dries fast, with a matte finish. This is a fabulous product.

I decided to use yellow colors because of the yellow tones in my picture. I needed to edit it a lot because it was very dark but I really loved this portrait of Maja.

Those abstract flowers really are a great solution if you run low with the embellishments but you want your page to look busy and filled with all the pretty stuff. I will definitely come back to this idea in some other project. With the Shimmerz Paints you can easily create the flower in the colors you need in that moment. You can use mists or paints to color the layers. Possibilities are limitless.

I hope I inspired you with this project to play with papers and paints. As always I have a process video for you.

I used:
- Aqua Huez (notice that they are no longer continued): Hottie Pink, Crazy Daisy
- Creameez: Cheeky Pink
- Shimmerz: Sunny
- Paste-eez: Salt of the Earth
- Spritz: Chick-a-dee

That's all for today. Thank you fro stopping by and see you in August.
