New Fall Creations From The Design Team!!

So, are you all ready to see some more from our Fabulous Design Team??? Guess what??? You get another week YAY!!! We decided that we were going to extend the New Release week to Two Whole Weeks of Design Team things that make you go mmmmmmmmmmm!!! Plus, that gives everyone another week for the video blog hop also :) So if you would still like to hop along the video train, just click here. Too many delicious things to cram into 1 week!

First up today is Jana! Check out what she did and what she had to say!

I really love the rich colors of this new release by Shimmerz and I knew immediately that I wanted to use them on a page of my daughter's first day of school. I used Jenni Bowlin's Kindergarten Classic Label Die cut paper as the base to my layout. I loved the look of the school lines printed on the paper and didn't want to cover them up. I decided to use Rock-a-Fella Blue Spritz and a fancy journal block by Melissa Frances as a mask to create a home for my title and journaling. I placed the journal blocks on my page and then used Rock-a-fella Blue Spritz over them. After a few minutes, when the paper was dry, I added an outline along the edges of the Spritzed shape for more definition. Next I built my page, adding my title and journaling to the appropriate spaces. I love how the smoky blue of the Rock-a-fella Blue Spritz looks here with the brown and red colors on this page. If you know me, you know that I can NOT leave a flower "naked" without a bit of Shimmerz paint accenting them. Here I used Antique Lace Shimmerz for a perfect touch of sheen.
Shimmerz Rock-a-Fella Blue Spritz; Antique Lace Shimmerz; Noel Mignon Core Curriculum kit; bits and pieces of past Noel Mignon kits.

Doesn't she always make it look so effortless????? Gorgeous!

Next up is Daniela!! Talk about effortless! Here is a card that would surely brighten anyone's day!! Here is what she says about the new Fall colors!

Four new Vintage Shimmerz Colors: Antique Lace, Mossy Stone, Vintage Vine and Wed Wagon. In addition, we are introducing Shimmerz Spritz Miniz - adorable 1 oz. bottles: Licorice, Rockafella Blue and Treasured Hymn.
Make sure you check out Shimmerz Blog all week for wonderful project and ideas with the new colors. Our wonderful Education Team is hosting a VIDEO blog hop introducing new colors and awesome projects and ideas.

For my card I sprayed Licorice Shimmerz Spritz on the patterned paper before adhering it to the card. To speed up the drying process I used my heat gun. If the paper curls from being damp heat on the underside, as well. You don't need much to add shimmer to any project.

After I stamped the bird on patterned paper I cut it out and sprayed with Rockafella Blue.

For the flower I punched scalloped circles out of scrap paper and brown paper bag paper. I sprayed the circles with Licorice and Treasured Hymn. Others I painted with Mossy Stone using my paint brush. After I created the flower I sponged Wed Wagon on the edges. For the flower check out my tissue flower tutorial.

WOW!! Don't they knock your socks right off???? Gorgeous! Run...don't walk over to Daniela's blog to check out her flower tutorial! Isn't that such a beautiful flower??
