Glitz Design - Classy and Fabulous using 'All Dolled Up'


Hey everyone

This month the Glitz Design kit features the range 'All Dolled Up'. I had not yet had a play with this collection so I decided to have a play and chose a favourite recent photo of Charlotte to scrap with. On this day I had dressed her up for a visit to her Grandma's. She just looked totally adorable, and a lot bigger than her nearly 2 years old. 

Layout title: Classy & Fabulous


I thought that 4x6 card from the Bits and Pieces paper was a perfect title and it was then I decided this would be another layout for her 'Life's Lessons' album. It was just one of those photos that I had wanted to scrap. 

I love the feminine feel of this layout and I think it is achieved by the colourings in the papers as well as the softness added by the vellum and the doily. I kept the layout simple in design, but layered which I think suits the title well too. I do not think a busy page would have worked or achieved quite the same effect. 

A close up of the title, and the accent stickers and giant rhinestone. The 'gold' droplets were created using the new Tim Holtz distress stain spray in 'Tarnished Brass', it has a really gorgeous golden tone. 


A layout doesn't seem complete lately without a touch of vellum, a doily and a peg. I recently added to my peg supplies from D-lish Scraps, who now have a large range of colours available. The bow sticker is also from the 'All Dolled Up' collection.


I have some more Glitz projects to share soon and have been working on some other projects I will be able to share in a month or so :)

Thanks for visiting today, having a great weekend!

What I've been working on….and some APOCD updates.

Hey everyone,

Well as you can assume, life with a little man and little girl has kept me super busy so finding that time to create can be difficult, but oh so cherished when I manage to!

A couple of days ago I had some time to craft so I created a few projects for my November commitments for Glitz Design. I thought I would just share a peek :)



In other news I have recently opened a Digital Store at A Piece of Cake Design. It features cut files and brushes from some awesome Australian and International designers. I am so proud of this little project and hope that people love it as much as I do.
