Product Focus- Putting on the Glitz with Glitz Glitzers

Hi Everyone. This week i wanted to share a layout that i did recently using the gorgeous Glitz Designs- Glitzers. They are truly gorgeous and would be lovely not only on layouts but cards also...They are transparent with diamond bling on the pictures or around the words and each new range of Glitz designs has their own matching embeliishments. They would be very easy to mix and match with other ranges of papers too - particualrly if you like the shabby vintage style.

Sadly my mojo has been terribly lacking over the last few weeks- i think that i am in a bit of a rut with my scrapbooking so i was delighted to find MIss Arts Papercrafting school. If you haven't checked them out yet- then you must! What a fabulous fabulous site! They run classes online- 3 at a intermediate level per month and three at a more advanced level for only $5-10 US per month. each class is taught by an internationally renowned tutor- and has a series of videos for you to follow to create with them. They are very technique based and they create their layout in front of you!

Every few months they have a free class- i recently did a Stacey Cohen class and last weekend they ran another free class by Julie Winks- wow was this class chocka full of technique - 12 videos!!! Anyhoo- since i was feeling that my layouts were abit samey i decided to give this a go- mine still looks very average next to hers but i loved trying some new techniques- masking- painting, chipboard distressing- using a Tim Holtz die that i hadn't used yet and her fabulous "nests:. Please check out Julie's blog for more of her wonderful work

Miss Arts Papercrafting School

Anyhoo this is the layout that i did based on this class

Using my new banner punch - love it!

 I hope that you will try the Glitzers- they are perfect for that extra special touch and so versatile no matter what paper ranges that you are using..

Also have a peek at the Miss Arts site for learning lots of new techniques

Happy Scrapping
