March Showers Using the April Color Kitz Bundle

Hello all!  Nicole here using the April Color Kitz Bundle to make this rainy day page!

First thing I did for this layout was grab my , background that I made during my unboxing video with the Sunny Side Up Coloringz, Well Blue Me Down Coloringz, and the Blue Jeans Vibez.  

I then tried to find some tone on tone papers to go with my background.  I tore them up and overlapped them with my photo.

I used some fussy cut flowers, stickers and ephemera from the kit to make little clusters all over my page.  I finished with buttons and sequins from my stash and some journaling.

Thanks so much for stopping in and reading about my layout.  You can find the kit here:

I also have a process video for this page if you would like to watch here:

If you grab anything from the shop don't forget to mention my name Nicole at checkout for a little freebie with your order.  Until next time,

For The Shimmerz Paints Design Team, Three ATCS, My Heart Has Wings And I Can Fly. I'll Touch Every Star In The Sky

 Hi everyone! Melissa here with a new page for the amazing Shimmerz Paints! Go and see all the fun                                                                            treasures there!    


I stenciled Prima Platinum Texture Paste with a small spatula onto watercolor paper measuring 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches. I taped on flowers, glued on beads and other items, and I brushed on                                                                Shimmerz Paints.  I rubbed on gold mica powder on different areas. 
                 I glued on slightly larger pieces of watercolor paper underneath the top piece.

               To add visual interest I added micro beads, glass glitter, chipboard, flowers, and fuss                                                          Graphic 45 papers. I punched holes and added wire to make a hanger for the ATCs.  I glued on a piece of cardstock the same size of the ATC on the back. I'll sign my name on them.                                                                                                       

                          Inklingz:   Imperial Amethyst She Packs A Punch and Dear John Letter

      Shimmerz: Run!Forest

Thank you so much for looking, and have a great week!




Picture Perfect - Joanne Bartell

Hi friends! Have you seen the April Paper and Color Kitz? Absolutely gorgeous colors and wow the papers are so super pretty! Feel free to check out the process video on my YouTube channel to see how this came together! 

I started off making paper strips with four of my favorite paper designs from April's kit. I cut them in varying lengths and widths, and scored them down the center to add interest and dimension.

I used Peach and Cream and Piggy Back colors from this month's kitz and painted in between the paper strips and along the edges as well. I finished it off with black splatters using the Color Splash glossy acrylic sprays Black Hole color. 

I also created florals using metal dies with the 4 patterned papers. 

I really love how this came out and absolutely adore the colors. Please feel free to watch my YouTube process video if you would like to see how this came together. As always, if you leave my name in the comment box of your order, you will receive a FREE GIFT! 

Thank you!

Celebrate | April Color Kitz | Brandy Vaughn

 Hello, crafty friends! Today I'm creating my own floral embellishments using the April cut file.

I just love how these flowers turned out! I cut them out on smooth cardstock and added my color using a paintbrush to get the perfect blended colors that I was looking for. 

I found a generic file on Cricut Design Space and painted it also. Then I picked out my word phrases and other elements to add to my page. 

Finally, I added a border from a piece of patterned paper in the kit, my title piece from my stash, and then a few dots of Color Splash in Black Hole to act like enamel dots. 

All in all, this was a simple layout that yielded gorgeous results! I hope you are inspired to create your own embellishments using this month's cut file and Color Kitz! 

Be sure to check the Shimmerz Paints store online for a closer look at all the goodies in the April Kitz.

Don't forget to add my name, Brandy Vaughn, to the comment section of your order for a FREE paint!

I would also love it if you would check out my process video below.

Streets of Dublin Using the Color Kitz Bundle | Nicole Santos

Hey all, Nicole here with a new layout using the beautiful April Color Kitz Bundle.  I decided to go for a monochromatic type page here using the pinks in the kitz!

I first used the Piggy Pink Creameez and the Peaches & Cream Shimmerz from the kitz to make my background, you can see me watch this background here:

I then used the patterned papers in the kit along with my photos to paper piece this page together.  I tore 2 of the patterned papers and then cut the rainbow paper to make a scalloped piece.

I added all the pink stuff to my layout using the ephemera, dotz, and stickers.

To finish my layout I used the Black Hole Color Splash to add black splatters.

Thanks for popping on to read about my layout.  You can watch my process video for this layout here:
