Summer Gold, a Shimmerz Paints DT Project, by Melissa Larson

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

I covered a 9 x4 " wood box with 49 & Market paper by using glossy accents. I put the Tim Holtz paper doll image on with layers of corrugated cardboard. I added the items around it. I brushed on the following Shimmerz Paints: First BlushChristmas Cheer, and Pink-A-Boo. I painted on gold mica powder and water,and rubbed some on too.

To add visual interest I added micro beads, seed beads,glass glitter,lace, pink tulle,  glass beads,dried flowers, pearls,metal from Reneabouquets,Tim Holtz,  flowers from  Reneabouquets,and bling and metal from my stash. Most of the things are glued on individually with Glossy Accents.

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

Winter Delight/January 2022 color kitz/Rhonda Reno

 Hello everyone, Rhonda here with a new layout showcasing the beautiful January 2022 Color Kitz collection.
This month's kit is filled to the brim with shimmery goodness and it was an absolute joy to create with.
In this kit you receive 

-Don't Rain On My Parade Vibez

-Pretty In Pink Coloringz

-Corney Flower Blue Inklingz

-Cheeky Pink Creameez

-Peaches & Cream Shimmerz which is a brand new color.

-You also get an exclusive cut file AND a very generous packet of THE most gorgeous glitter!

-And as if all that isn't enough you also get a coordinating set of Shimmerz exclusive epoxy flair.


Once I covered my smooth white cardstock with gesso I got out a stencil and some texture paste to create the look of snowy trees. Once the texture paste was dry I started adding color with the Vibez "Don't Rain On My Parade" with a hint of the Inklingz "Corney Flower Blue" and then I used a paint brush and added some snow paste and while that was wet I got heavy handed with the glitter. This glitter is a mixture of fine and chunky with extreme sparkle.

I added several layers behind my photo because two things you'll almost always find on my projects are dimension and texture. For even more interest I added some sparkly tulle behind the photo. It doesn't show up as well in the photographs as it does in person but it definitely satisfied my intended goal. 

For the snowflakes cascading down my page I used all the colors in the kit to create a mixed media background. I then used a Martha Stewart snowflake punch and punched out the snowflake shapes from the mixed media background. Once I had glued them to my page I used the sewing machine to create a messy stitched line down each row of snowflakes. I then used a paintbrush to dab glue onto them randomly and added more of the glitter.

I used the cut file a little differently this month and instead of cutting it with a die cutting machine I printed it out and colored it with the "Peaches & Cream" Shimmerz, "Corney Flower Blue" Inklingz and the "Pretty In Pink" Coloringz.

I also used the "Pretty In Pink" Coloringz and the "Peaches & Cream" Shimmerz for the mixed media along the top of my layout.
The epoxy flair was the perfect finishing touch for my wintry layout.


Thank you for stopping by the blog and be sure you head over to the Shimmerz shop and scoop up your January 2022 Color Kitz before they're sold out!

Happy crafting!

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:
