Puppy Love | Featuring the January 2022 Color Kitz | Shannon Allor

Hello friends!  It's Shannon up on the blog today bringing you this icy cool layout featuring the January Color Kitz!  This kit comes with a gorgeous cutfile, a glitter packet, Pink Snowflake Dotz, Don't Rain on My Parade Vibez, Corney Flower Blue Inklingz, Peaches & Cream Shimmerz, Cheeky Pink Creameez and Pretty In Pink Coloringz!

I wanted to create icy snowdrifts so I tore my pretty mixed media strips, dipped the tops of them in liquid adhesive and then coated them with the Glitter Packet.

Look at how wonderfully lacey the florals are on this cutfile!

I tucked in the Dotz here and there in my clusters.

Shimmerz Design Team Layout, Pretty In Blue

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

I put the layers under the photo together,starting with taping on watercolor paper under the image to make it stronger and to lie flat. I taped together layers of cardboard with the photo on top. I applied Prima crackle paste with a spatula. I put the chipboard frame  on the page, and started adding flowers and other items. I painted the corrugated, chipboard,and watercolor matt with Shimmerz Paints, First BlushBlue My Mind, and Olive U Truly. All the gold on the page is mica powder and water.

To add visual interest I added micro beads, seed beads,glass glitter,iridescent wrapping paper,gold thread, lace, pink tulle, Swarovski and other brands of crystals, glass beads, pearls,metal from Reneabouquets,Tim Holtz, sealing wax, flowers from  Reneabouquets,and bling and metal from my stash. Most of the things are glued on individually with Glossy Accents.I used double sided foam tape for the flowers and some other things,and to put the cardboard layers together. 

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

January 2022 Color Kitz | Brianna Lepper

 Hey friends!  Brianna Lepper here today with a new layout using the super gorgeous January 2022 Color Kitz.  Make sure to check out my process video at the end of this post!  Here's my layout, I hope you like it!

To start, I added some gesso to a piece of thick white cardstock and got to work on my background.  I used the Don't Rain on My Parade Vibez and Corney Flower Blue Inklingz along with my small brayer.  I painted and splattered both colors on making sure to blend here and there.  I cut the cut file out on white textured cardstock and once it was finished cutting, I sprayed the Pretty in Pink Coloringz on the large part of the camera and painted the Peaches and Cream Shimmerz and Cheeky Pink Creameez onto the florals/leaves.  

Once my cut file was finished drying, I backed it with vellum.  I then took the inner part of the camera lens and created a shaker with the Sparklez Glitter.  It made the lens look super sparkly and pretty!

Next, I adhered the cut file down on my background and started creating my embellishment clusters.  I had a few floral pieces that I used as a base and then added in my Dotz from the kit.  This months color kit is super wintery and it matches perfectly with the December Hip Kit Club kits. 

Here's another photo of a cute cluster:

Remember | January Color Kits 2022

 Hello everyone, and a super happy New Year!

My first layout our of the gate for the Shimmerz Paints Design team features the gorgeous January 2022 Color Kitz. It features some super pretty pinks and beautiful blues, perfect for any kind of layout. I used mine to document a Christmas Eve selfie.

Let's get started!

I began by selecting a subtly-patterned patterned paper in an off-white color; the first layer of mixed media were the blues (Corn Flower Blue and Don't Rain On My Parade) which were splattered and sprayed, respectivelly. While they were drying, I began to work on backing the cutfile (part of the Color Kitz). For it, I chose soft color papers from the Lora Bailona "Latitud" collection to match the overall color scheme of the Kit. The glitter that comes with Color Kitz was added around the lens of the camera. 

Moving on to my second layer of mixed media on the base, I splashed and splattered the pinks (Cheeky Pink, Pretty In Pink, Peaches and Cream) to create a "dusky" background; it certainly reminds me of the sky as the sun is setting in the Winter! To finish off my layout, I placed the camera cutfile on craft foam for added dimension and added it on to the right hand side of the layout. After adding in the picture to the left hand side, I added in various different embellishments that fit the color scheme and story that I wanted to tell. I added the journaling in the center of the camera lens, added the Dotz around my clusters and finished off the layout with an extra splattering of Cheeky Pink.

That's it! Thank you for much dropping by today! Remember, if you type "Lorimar" in the comments section of your next Shimmerz order, you'll get a freebie!

Take care,

Gingerbreads by Veronika

 Hello Scrappy friends.

This is my First Christmas themed layout this year. We have tradition with my girls to bake gingerbreads and as I love it I will scrap it again and again:). I used very lovely collection by Florileges design called Cannnelle & Chocolat. I think is perfect for Christmas layouts especially those about baking.

I started with title this time, I die cut letters , outline from dark blue patterned paper and inside from light brown paper which reminded me gingerbreads. and put both parts together. Then I tore Some papers to create upper part of layout. 

And here I realised that Im doing layout for Shimmerz paints, so I actually Need to use some Shimmerz paints :D I went for Miner miner 49er mostly, bit mixed with Egg Nogin, here and there I added Don't Rain on my Parade and Royal red. As it dried it was too golden for me so I mixed Royal red with Emerald City and Shimmering Goldie Lox to have some beige and add to my background. I added also some splatters.

I adhered top and bottom paper parts, then I adhered pictures and my title. I fussycutted some ginger breads from another patterned paper and tried to find perfect  composition for them. I added also some of cute acrylic embellishments. At the end I added some splatters again and wrote my journaling. 

It is quite busy layout, but I like it a lot because it reminds me lovely moments with my girls :)

So enjoy the end of this year and I wish you 2022 full off scrapping.
