Glitz Design - Some super quick cards to share!


Hey everyone

Today I am here to share something different to my usual - some cards. I always have the best intentions and proclaim that I will make cards with my leftover supplies, but unfortunately proclaiming it is all I ever usually do.

So I decided to set myself a challenge.
To use my scraps of Glitz papers and my punches to create some cards to give with gifts.

As I am not a cardmaker I did a quick 'card' search on Pinterest to see the types of cards people make and to get inspiration then sat down with my collection of offcuts and punches and got to work. Most of these cards came together quite easily and I was really happy with the end result. And what is better than the satisfaction of using up some of those supplies and papers?

Here is what I created:



And some close ups of each card:




 


Set of 3 cards supplies:
Glitz Design “Brightside” papers – Bits & Pieces

Other: White cardstock, plain vellum, sewing machine and white thread, tiny attacher and staples, butterfly punches, scallop punches, foam tape.

Thanks for visiting my blog today.

Some sneaks…and an update

Hey everyone

Today I am here to share a couple of sneaks of some things I have been working on :)

The September 'A Piece of Cake Designs' scrapbooking kits are shaping up beautifully :) I am in love with both of them and can't wait to start sharing soon. If you have not been following the APOCD blog or Facebook, I am having a design team call which closes on the 15th of this month. You can find out more details on the APOCD blog here


I have a share going up on the Glitz Design blog this Thursday, here's a sneak - something a little different for me:


 I also started creating my first page of baby Jack. I used the June Cupcake kit from APOCD, which was perfect for the layout. Heres a glimpse of it, I will be uploading a process video of it soon :)



Life has been all about settling in and finding our feet here. Jack will be 7 weeks old tomorrow, time is just flying by already! 


Charlotte is just such a big girl now and doesn't stop talking! She just loves being a big sis :)
I'll be back with full project shares soon :)
