Shimmerz Blog Hop!



Welcome, welcome, to the Shimmerz Paints "We're Thankful" Blog Hop! 

The holidays are quickly approaching, and we will soon be entering into the gift giving season. Before black friday appears though, we want to remember all the things that we are thankful for this year. We've decided to put on a blog hop, telling you things that we are thankful for and along the way we will share with you our own personal favorite Shimmerz Products, and give you the opportunity to win some fabulous prizes! Have you seen our new collection? It's made up of of 4 new vibez colors, shimmering with golden luster! They will work amazingly with our holiday collection that we are re-releasing for the holidays! If you didn't get the opportunity to snag these last year, now is your chance!


 To play along with us, visit the following links, leave a comment everywhere you go, and finally, once you end up on the Shimmerz blog page, tell us something that you are thankful for and what Shimmerz Paint product you wish you had. Make sure to leave a comment everywhere though, because there are a couple of prizes hidden within some of the Ed team, and DT blog posts! (To be eligible to win these, you must have left a comment on their blog hop post.)


Here are a few of the holiday projects that were created by our team last year, that used our previous holiday collection, and that we loved!

This adorable box, and ornament were created by owner, Stacey, and we think they are just sooo cute!

 These candles were altered by me, Heidi Kelley. I just love how they shimmer on my holiday table, adding sparkle and pizazz as a centerpiece.

And this layout, created by Stacey Young, well...everytime that I look at it, I swoon.

What Shimmerz products are your favorite? Seriously, I can't choose anymore. :) 

One thing that we know for certain, though, here at Shimmerz, is that one of our favorite things about this past year, is being able to inspire all of you, and we hope that this blog hop has done just that! We appreciate all of you, are crafty friends, and wish you the most amazing holiday season!

AND Don't forget to be coming back here this weekend if you are playing along with the hop now... amazing Black Friday deals are soon on their way... 
but first this blog hop you must play!!! :)

What's up for grabs if you play along?
THE WHOLE MERRY & BRIGHT COLLECTION!!!
(yep, that's all 8 colors, pictured here!)

In other fun news, coming up in December and January, we have guest educator, Miranda Edney, playing with us! Have you seen her work? It is truly gorgeous... I can hardly wait to see what she does with our paints. :)


Alrighty, here are the rest of the blog hop links, in case you get lost somewhere around the way.
You have until November 25 to enter, and we will notify all the winners sometime shortly after!!


Thanks for playing along with us!! Have fun, and be inspired!

From all of us here at Shimmerz! Thank you!!!

Ok, here we go!

Pascale B. said...

I just finish to see all the beautiful creations of the team.
I love my shimmerz products, but it's really difficult to find them here in France. So I use them sparingly, but it's difficult....
I would love to try the enamelz and the blingz!!

Kristy Tyra said...

It didn't take long to do the bloghop. Seriously talented people. I'm very thankful for my family. I don't know what I'd do without them. As for a Shimmerz product? That's a hard decision, but anything that sprays glimmer has to be good, no matter what the color!

Shona said...

Mona L. Pendleton said...

Regina Hamilton said...

Finished the hop, and there were some AMAZING projects shown. I'm thankful for God's Grace, a support husband, my family and good health. I would love to have the Merry and Bright collection, and all your embossing powders.

Nitasha said...

I'm grateful for Zumba and my Zumba instructors! I totally love it and it is inspiring me to get off my buns and move!!! Gonna need it after Turkey day!!

Leslie said...

What a great hop! I could never choose one product, but my favorite of your products is the Coloringz. Love how vibrant the colors are.

I am most thankful for my family. We were almost torn apart and I am so happy my son survived!

JULIANA said...

I am thankful for my husband! I would love to have more colorz of any of the Shimmerz products!

Scrap2day said...

I knew when I started this blog hop I would be inspired. I come to your blog all the time and watch all of your videos! Well let me tell you, the DT outdid themselves! amazing works of art! I have so many ideas that I want to try and I've made a list of their favorite Shimmerz products so I can buy them on your Black Friday Sale! ho ho ho...santa is coming to see me!
I'm most thankful for my family..there are always things you want/need...but without a family those things would be half as nice! To me, Family is everything..i never let my children or husband leave without telling them I love them, same thing with the phone, the last thing I say to them before I hang up is those 3 simple words I Love you...those little words have more meaning than any I know of.
My favorite Shimmerz product is any color of the Shimmerz I just love shimmer! he he

Dorotka said...

I really enjoy seeing the DTs work of arts using Shimmerz. Thanks for the hop.

This year I'm so thankful for my parents who always be there for me no matter what happened.

I LOVE Shimmerz...but dont have any yet. :( Hopefully soon.

Happy Holidays.

Thank you for the hop and the opportunity to see all your designers at work. I love what I saw. I don't have any Shimmerz, so anything would be wonderful. I would love to have some playtime with your gorgeous products.

Amanda Jane said...

I am grateful for the life I have lived, the lessons I've learned and all that is ahead of me yet. In my country my life is less than ordinary but compared to so many people in other countries I live an affluent and charmed life. I am grateful that I live in a democracy and have a government that cares for its people. I have so many things to be grateful for. :)

MORMOR said...

I have been an admirer for quite some time, but yet to be a user. I have not found shirrmerz in local stores so it is time to place an order. I love the projects I have seen and would love to try the product.

MORMOR said...

I left a comment before I started to hop, but I had to leave another after finishing the hop. I am so thankful that I took the time to follow through on this one. There was so much inspiration. I also saw the many uses of Shimmerz products and the beautiful depth it creates when used. In the spirit of being thankful I am so thankful for my family and friends. They mean so much to me. I am also thankful for my dogs, even the puppy who refuses to be house broken. I could go on, but this is a comment not my blog post.

Karen said...

Unbelievable projects here. I am going to have to tackle them sometime soon....because I am deffinately looking to different and beautiful!

Karen said...

Being thankful many family and friends that has helped me through this past 15mos while I have been disabled. Socially, mentally they have helped keep me together! Without them and of course some creativity (scrapping and crocheting) I would not have made it thus far!
I am also thankful for the many types of technology today. Without it, I may never be able to walk again, and/or be pain out of most of this pain.

Trudi Harrison said...

What a fabulous hop. So much gorgeous beauty and colour, you make it hard to pick a favourite product. As far as I can see all your products shine with shimmery brilliance.
Thanks so much for the wonderful inspiration. Love how modern technology can bring us all together from all parts to share the creativity.
For me, each moment of every day is a blessing and I am truly thankful and for what I have.
