Inspired by Natalie - A card

Hey everyone

Today I am here to share a card I created for Papercut Labs promo week for Natalie's class 'Flashy Cards Fast'. You can find out about her class here On Sale NOW: Flashy Cards Fast!

The task was to create a card inspired by a layout of Natalie's. I was inspired by this layout created and shared on her blog here . Natalie created it as part of the Instagram challenge called Society 52.

Here is my card. I used the tags as inspiration. I created my own using my avery elle tag die and some white card stock. I also mimicked the layering and used that to embellish the top of my card.

Don't forget to check out the Papercut labs site and find out all about Nat's class.

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:
