Altered Candle Stick Holder with Shona

Hello Shimmerz Fans! Today I have a fun Off the Page candlestick holder from my Flying Unicorn Sept kit. It was just wood to start and I added lots of texture and color with yummy Shimmerz!


To start I covered it with a coat of gesso and added some crackle paste. After that dried over night it was time to add color!


First I added Don’t Be Suede Coloringz..and let that soak into the cracks as I heat set it. Next I added Well Blue Me Down Coloringz. I just adore this color combo and have used it many times. My finishing touches are drops of Brass Knuckles Inklingz. The finish is so pretty and I love how the color soaks into the cracks.


On your next Shimmerz order, mention my name (in the notes to merchant) and Stacey will send you a sample for FREE!!!! Swing on by our Facebook page for more inspiration and watch out for giveaways and links to the NEW Shimmerz Shortz videos! Take care and happy Scrapping!

My Happy Planner

Hello There,

Renee, here with you today to share another arty passion.


I love to plan, the organised I am the better.

I recently purchased a Happy Planner by Me & My Big Ideas.
There is so much potential in this planner to do some extra crafty details.

Especially with all my favourite Shimmerz products.

Here is my weekly layout for this week.

I think one of the main reason that I love this planner is the fact that the paper is great quality.
It means that every Shimmerz product I used on the paper, did not leak or bleed onto the next.
I cannot wait to do next week's layout.

I chose a circus theme for this week.

I love all the texture from the Shimmerz Dazzelerz.

These are the Shimmerz Products I used:

Shimmerz Coloringz - My Bleeding Heart
Shimmerz Dazzelerz - Gummy Berry Blue
Shimmerz Dazzelerz - Red-iculous
Shimmerz Dazzelerz - Licorice Stick
Shimmerz Dazzelerz - Lemon Drop.

Check out my tutorial that shows you how to create a planner weekly layout.

Thank you so much for stopping by!!

This Smile Layout by Missy

Hey there!  Missy back with you today.  I have a sweet layout to share with you today featuring several Shimmerz products.  I started with white cardstock, a square grid stencil and some Texturez in Tidy Widy.  I love giving my backgrounds texture, and this is a great way to begin.  Once that dried, I came in with some Coloringz in Well Blue Me Down, which is a teal color.  I sprayed it onto some plastic packaging and smudged it on top of the Texturez design.  Next, I used a mix of Creameez and Inklingz in various yellow and gold tones.  Finally, I added in some pink shades with Inklingz in Beets Me.  I did add in some Dazzlerz after my paper layers and photo were adhered.

I used the American Crafts 5th and Frolic collection from a few years ago for this page.  I love the teals, yellows and pinks mixed together.  Here you can see the texture from the Texturez as well as the pretty tones of yellow and gold.  I love the different finishes that the Inkingz and Creameez give.  I love how they all look with all of these paper and embellishment layers.

After I adhered my papers and photo, I used a lined stencil and some of the Sea U in the Mornin' Dazzlerz to create more texture and to give a pop of color.  I layered my Thickers right on top of it as well as this hot air balloon sticker and my flair buttons.

I used a circle stencil and my finger to apply the Beets Me Inklingz.  I just barely dipped my finger into the paint and then smudged it on through the circles.  It felt like finger painting!  So fun, and I love the messy look it gives.

You can see how this layout came together and how I created this background in my process video here.  Thanks for watching, and I hope it inspires you somehow :)

Thanks for stopping by today, and have a wonderful day!

clear layout by Yuko

I made the layout using a transparent material.
The theme of the summer sea, sandy beach.

This picture doesn't show that it's clear, does it?

Feeling of the transparency was made importantly so that a clear board might be utilized.

This is a layout that is a double because I wanted to that little has changed.

A clear board is being supported with a shell.

The starfish was colored with shimmerz + dry glitter
