Scrap That! November “Putting on the Glitz” Kit BLOG HOP!

Hi everyone and TGIF! Welcome to the Scrap That! November reveal blog hop!!


If you have just arrived here from Robin’s blog you are in the correct place!  If not, head back to the Scrap That! blog for the blog hop order and links.

Today I’m going to share with you my projects using the Scrap That! Putting on the Glitz” Kit featuring Glitz Vintage Blue.  This kit is so YUMMY and the embellishments go perfectly with the gorgeous Glitz papers. I can not lie..I love these papers so much that I got the paper add on too. So I have lots of projects and so many more to show in the future. I used the kit sketch as a starting point on 4 of my layouts.

ADORE. The photo is my son and grand daughter. I used the MME papers as the top on this layout and did a lot of fussy cutting.

Here are a couple of close ups of the embellishments in the kit and I made the larger flowers from kit papers.


For my next layout, also using the sketch, I used lots of gorgeous Glitz papers and lots of goodies from the embellishment add on kit. The photo is my daughters and DH at Nanoose Bay earlier this month.

Here are some close up of the gorgeous flowers and I added some Dusty Attic sea shells.



TIP: for added texture I tucked in some pieces of gauze (which I stole from my hubbys first aid kit). I also misted the DA pieces on the paper so the shells are masked in the back ground.

FANTASTIC FIRSTS. This photo was taken this month, my grandson on his first pumpkin patch tour. He had so much fun. This is also based on this months sketch and I added lots of extra layers of goodies.

In this close up you can see the bright masking that I did in the background. I fussy cut the birds from the Glitz paper layers and added some gauze for texture.

I made all of the orange flowers on this layout from kit papers and added more Dusty Attic leaves around them. The Prima resin shutters also come in this months embellishment kit.


A DAY TO REMEMBER…my niece this summer getting married..what a beauty she was that day too! I also used the sketch but added in back ground layers.

The title is just a sticker from my stash as well as the velume quote. I added some liquid pearls just for a little soft touch, and punched some butterflies from the Glitz papers.

These 3 close ups are of the flower cluster area. The vine was fussy cut from one of the Glitz papers and then I added some flowers to it.



My cutie patutie grandson..awwwww J This one is called NATURE and I had fun doing lots of brick masking in the background.

I did some fussy cutting and added lots of pop ups for dimension. The leaves are from Dusty Attic and you can find them in the Scrap That! store.


I also made a quick little Halloween Card for a friend. The pumpkin graphic is a printable from  here.
