XOXO | February Color Kitz | Brandy Vaughn

 Hello, everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful Valentine's Day! We celebrated last weekend with a Valentine-themed birthday party for my grandaughter's 5th birthday! This was just the sweetest photo of her and her friend, and the February kit complements it perfectly! 

I decided I wanted this one to be 8.5x11. I knew I wanted the black plaid paper to be a big part of the layout because I love it so much! So I cut out a piece that measures 8x4.5 and placed it prominently across the top of my white cardstock. I then added a pink strip that I cut into a fringe with my herb scissors. At this point, I decided to machine stitch down the center of the black stripes. 

Then I painted this banner with Spritz - Happy Hour and Creameez - 1 Hot Mama

Next, I added some Coloringz - A Bright Fuschia to my page, then fussy cut the large X's and O's from one of the patterned papers to use as the title. 

After adding my embellishments, I finished the page off with splatters and journaling. 

I hope you enjoy this layout. You can check out my process video here:

Fun Day/Rhonda Reno

Hey Shimmerz friends! I'm excited to be on the blog today sharing a new layout with all of you using some gorgeous Shimmerz Paints products. 

I really went crazy with this layout and used the Snow Much Fun winter paper pad from Doodlebug to create an all summer layout and I love how it turned out. The colors were just too perfect for these pictures, right??

I created my background on a sheet of thick white cardstock covered in clear gesso.
The Shimmerz I used to create the backgound on this layout are:

Vibez-Snow Way Man and Quit Yer Wine'N

Spritz-Sweet Pea

Coloringz-Don't Citron Me

I'm completely in love with this combination of colors! 

I used a hexagon die to cut the photos as well as the other hexagons on the layout.
Embellishments are minimal but you can see them scattered around the layout in the following photos. 

I sure hope you found some inspiration today!
I'll leave a link in case you want to hop over to the Shimmerz shop and grab yourself any of the beautiful colors I used on this layout or any of the other amazing products in the shop.

You Are Mine | Sarah Millerhouse | February Color Kitz


Hello! I am so excited to share my first layout using the BEAUTIFUL February Color Kitz! The pinks and reds found in the paints, patterned papers, and embellishments are so fantastic and vibrantly beautiful! Be sure to check out the full process video I have up on the Shimmerz Paints channel linked below! 

I started with a cutfile I made by combining the word love and a heart in between. I created this in the Cricut Design Center and was able to weld the words and hearts together to create one image. I cut this on textured white cardstock and painted it with the colors from the February Color Kitz. While that was drying, I added Distress Oxide in Kitsch Flamingo to a piece of Foundations mixed media cardstock. I also added splatters of all the February paints to the top of the Distress Oxide. I wanted the cutfile to have a tone on tone layer to sit on, and I adhered that down in the center of the page once it was dry.

I then added my photos matted on patterned papers from the February Kitz. I popped my photos up on craft foam for added dimension. Around the photos, I added lots of ephemera and embellishments from the month's kit. I love all the vivid and adorable love themed elements! 

I also added sequins and shiny bits from the sequin mix in the February Bonuz Bundle! I love this mix of beautiful pieces that coordinate perfectly with all the colors this month! 

I have a full process video up on the Shimmerz Paints Channel linked here: Full Process Video

Have a beautiful week!

You + Me Using the February Color Kitz

Hey all, Nicole here with my newest layout using the February Color Kitz!  I started with this pic of me and my hubby from October.  I then used all the colors from the kit to make my background.

After I made the background, I painted some of the flowers from the paper kit and fussy cut out.  Then I started to build up my layout, adding some stenciling on the background and then my paper piecing.

After I had my paper where I wanted, I placed the flowers around my photo and then added stickers and die cuts.

Here's the finished page!  Thanks for popping in to read about my layout.  I also have a process video that you can find here:
