Pretty In Pink

Hello there, Jolaine here! While I wait to play with the gorgeous new releases, I thought I'd share with you a couple of creations with Pretty In Pink, one of my favorite Glitz collections.

I created this layout using a photo of my daughter I recently took while on vacation. Love how the pink polka dot paper balance out the otherwise vintage and grungy browns.

To add a fun element to my page, I punched a few banners and placed them on my layout. I also included a few sprinkles of French Kiss embellishments. That's what I like aobut Glitz Design, all of the collections work very well together. Here's a closer look...

For my next project, I created a wall hanging. As you know, Glitz is well known for having inspirational quotes in their stamps and stickers and I was inspired by the empowering message in one of the title stickers.

Thanks so much for your visit today! Have a happy scrappy time :)

So Happy!

The August sketch challenge over at My Creative Sketches is now live and both, the sketch and the prize up for grabs, is truly amazing! For this reveal, I played with the En Francais collection By Prima to make this masculine layout of my son.

You may click the button above to pin this image. About the layout, I love the burgundy and blue hues in these papers and thought they were perfect to pair up with this cute photo of Dylan I recently took while on vacation. Here's a closer look...

I frayed a piece of denin that I cut out of an old pair of jeans and used it as a layer under the photo. I also used the fibers to add dimension and the zipper as an added detail.

I hope you can take the time to play along with us at My Creative Sketches. The winner is always chosen at random and the prizes are yummy! Here's the sketch to help you along...

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a happy, scrappy week!!!

Good Times

This month's sketch over at Once Upon a Sketch is beautiful and inspiring; the theme is seasons and I'm excited to share with you my sample for the reveal...

I used a mix of Seaside Retreat and Yacht Club from Webster's Pages to create my layout. Seaside Retreat is one of my all time favorite collections from Webster's Pages. I created a layout, an altered canvas and a mini album with it when it was first released and I was happy to create with it again, it felt good to dig into my stash and use up my supplies!

As you know, OUAS is all about telling a story so journaling is very important. My journaling is hidden in a folded tag in the lower left corner of the photo. I made a dangly charm as a pull to go with it. In the back of the tag, I wrote about how much I love summer because it is the time of the year when I'm off work and able to spend more time with my children. Of course, the warm sunny days don't hurt either!

Here's a couple of close-ups...

Imaginarium Designs generously sent me a hefty supply of their wonderful chipboard (thanks ID!), here is one of the titles painted and inked to coordinate with the rest of the page.

I hope you're inspired to play along, here's the sketch sure to get your creative juices flowing!

Till next time, have a wonderful evening!!!

It's Reveal Time!

Good morning friends! I hope you all had a great weekend. I'm back with the full reveal from My Creative Scrapbook for the month of August. If you like Prima (and seriously, who doesn't, LOL), this month's LE kit is for you! First off is the gorgeous papers from the Fairy Belle collection, then beautiful flowers and vines, and let's not forget the stunning vintage trinkets, plus so much more! This kit is to die for!!!!

During my recent trip to Punta Cana, we got to attend the most beautiful wedding on the beach. The bride (my husband's cousin) looked stunning and I created this layout as a present for her.

To make it easier for her to display it in a tabletop easel, I mounted the layout on chipboard.

One of the vintage trinkets on the kit is a working locket. I thought it was the perfect addition to this page as the bride can add the wedding date of little photos of her and the groom here.

Another page using the beautiful papers and flowers in the kit, notice the pretty lace and bling, swoon!

Here's a closer look...

And another layout. This one has lots of fussy cutting to play up the fairy theme. I also incorporated one of Emily's favorite quotes from the Peter Pan movie, "Faith, trust and pixie dust".

To create the lattice background, I used my craft knife to follow the design on the paper, then inked around it to make the cut outs stand out a bit.

Here's a few more close ups,

To go along with the layout I'm gifting my husband's cousin, I made this coordinating card.

I added stitching and liquid pearls using my Viva pen, plus more of those beautiful trinkets :)

I also finished the inside of the card to make it more special.

I hope you enjoyed my creations with this kit, here's a look at the bundle of goodies...

Thanks so much for joining me today. Head over to My Creative Scrapbook to see what the rest of the talented DT created with this and the other kits available at MCS!
