I got you babe - *Glitz Design*

Today I am here to share with you a layout for the 'day to day' series on the Glitz blog. Well, as I mentioned in a previous post, my day to day life became busier 12 weeks ago now with the arrival of my little boy Jack. So I decided to create a layout all about him and scrap a picture which is a good example of his little life right now…. loving a 'mummy snuggle'.

I decided to have a play with the '77' collection as I had not yet created with it and the blue and orange tones of the collection were really calling my name.

Here is the layout I created:


Here is a close up of some of the dimension and layering. I'm a big fan of foam tape and dots, anything to add that extra bit of dimension.


I decided to use my 'Black & White' collection giant roller doodle in the 'X' design on this page. To create this effect I stamped on a diagonal with versa mark ink. I then used a blue and white embossing powder, I wanted to create a sort of ombre look here. I then set it with my heat tool.


A close up of the journaling which I completed on a card from the 'Bits and Pieces' paper, some stickers and my typewriter.


Embellishing with the giant rhinestones and accent stickers made a great little embellishment cluster.


A final close up of my page:

Glitz Design “77” papers – Bits & Pieces, Feather, Floral, Stripe

I hope this page has inspired you today. I had a great time documenting a little moment in Jack's life, I am sure it will be the first of many :)
