Layout Share - Glitz Design 'Carpe Diem'

Hey everyone,

Today I am here to share a layout I created for the 'Day to Day' series on the Glitz Blog. Its a day where the projects focus on the everyday happenings; whether that be through Project Life style creations or regular layouts.

As I shared in my last post, I recently had another baby and have been looking for a way to document his life in an effective but time efficient way. I know this is where the pocket page scrapbooking may suit me, but this search also encouraged me to delve to the apps available on iPhone/android to see what was out there which would support this.

On the search I found the app called Collect. I had read about Collect on other peoples blog and knew it would be perfect for my boys album and also perfect for scrapping. t has the ability to create a sleek and professional looking polaroid image using your cameras photo roll in seconds. You can add the date and some journaling too. Unfortunately this app is only available for iPhone users.  I did email the creators of this app some time ago asking about android but it won't be happening in the immediate future.


Before I begin, this post is not affiliated with the app at all, I just thought it would be cool to share. 

So in order to have a practice with the app, I decided to choose something to photograph from my every day and create a layout.. What is a better everyday moment than that first cup of coffee for the day? I printed this out in a 3x4 size, I just love the look it gives.

Here is the layout I created:


And some detailed close up images:

Here I have used a Giant Rhinestone from the Carpe Diem collection too


Extra journaling.



I created lots of layers using the papers from the 'Carpe Diem' 6x6 paper pad.
