My Glitz Design Layouts for January

Do you love to find patterns in papers that you can cut out to make a big embellishment? I do! I also love black and white photos. So, I combined my love for both in the layout “Always Remember to Dream”.

I cut out a section of the black and white floral patterned paper and nestled my also black & white photo into it. To dress up the cut out, I applied glitter glue to some of the petals and let dry. Once it was dry, I gently curled the petals of some of the flowers.

I added giant pink rhinestones to create the flower centers.

To create the title, I cut out a sticker to suit my page.

To finish the page, I journaled around the photo.
"Always Remember to Dream" supplies: Glitz Design "Hoopla" papers: Pipework, Floral; Glitz Design "Scarlett" Titles cardstock stickers; Glitz Design giant rhinestones: pink

Now, if you don’t have a girl to scrap about in your life or if you don’t like to scrap boy photos with flowers, here’s something that’s more masculine, more streamlined and more energetic.

I did a simple clean grid design. I stamped onto patterned paper with musical notes, hounds tooth and book print stamps, punched them out with square punches and arranged them as shown. To add a little color, I stitched them down with embroidery floss.

Added a giant black rhinestone

Added a message using the mini alphabet stickers

Added title and journaling to finish.
