But First, Ice Cream | Irit Landgraf

Hi! Irit here with a new project using some lovely Shimmerz goodies. Ink Sprays are my go to supplies. Keep on reading for all the details!
Here's my finished layout-

What I love about ink sprays like Coloringz and Vibez is how easy it is to get a gorgeous look in absolutely no time at all.
To create this background I used a stencil (it's actually an old specialty paper that looks like a stencil, you can see it in the video tutorial) and a mixture of sprays. Coloringz in Mama sings the blues & Don't citron me, Vibez in Razzledazzle berry and Spritz in Ruby.

Supplies used: Patterned paper by Glitz Designs, Ephemera by Scrapbook- Werkstatt, puffy stickers by Pink Paislee Oh My Heart collection.

Here's the video tutorial I created showing how this came together-

Don't forget to mention my name when placing an order on the Shimmerz website!

Thanks for visiting and have a great day!

Alter home decor with Felicity

Hello lovely people. Felicity here today. I want to share today a couple of home decor items that I revamp ALL with shimmerz.

Products used: Pasteez - Tree hugger 
Colouringz Well blue me down and Oh say can U sea. 
Actronez - 3 sheets to the wind and Jiven Jade 

First off with the little old wooden spool, I coated that with the White Actronez, 3 sheets to the wind, then I used mostly the the colouringz over the top once it was dry.  I took the top off the bottles and used a brush to wipe it on. Then I finished off with the paint splatters and teeny bit of the Pasteez on the edge to add dimension. 

Next I alter this cute little frame. I did one about 12 months ago. So when I saw this pre-loved frame, I knew I wanted to give it a new lease of life just like the other one.
So once again, I started with the Actronez, 3 sheets to the wind, then I brush on some of the Acrtonez in Jiven Jade. To add some sparkle and shimmer, I finished off with some of the colouringz.

Oh I love how these turned out. They take pride of place on my mantle in the lounge room.

Hope this inspires you to try something new with your shimmerz.

She's a Dreamer

Hey friends!  Missy here today, and I have a very fun and bright layout to share.  I wasn't sure what I wanted to create for my project, so I picked up a Jane Davenport patterned paper pad and was instantly inspired by all the gorgeous colors and abstract designs.  I decided to create a messy and artsy background using lots of Shimmerz goodies and some circles punched from paper.

I started with a white cardstock background.  After punching all the circles and seeing what colors I had to work with, I selected several Shimmerz products to create my background.  I used Coloringz Pink Stilettos and No Yoking with some plastic packaging and smushed the color down.  Then I directly sprayed some Vibez Jeni B Bleu onto the page.  I love how it sort of turned into a color blocking design.  To add in more shades of pink, I used a palette knife and some Paste-eez Raspberry Sherbet on top of the base pink.  I also sprayed some Vibez Cold As Ice and Coloringz Heidi Ho Blue for some blue variation.

I really love how bright and colorful this turned out!  I randomly adhered the circles after the background dried and then pulled some Bella Blvd puffy stickers and some sequins from SpiegelMom Scraps.  I also added some coordinating threads under my photo.  I even attached some circles on to of the photo since I had some open space.

I love the tone-on-tone colors here with the background and the circles.  I added lots of matching splatters after the circles were down.  For my title, I combined some older American Crafts white alphas with a fussy cut word from a Dear Lizzy paper (the Lovely Day collection).  I added some journaling under the title using an Illustrated Faith pen.

I did try and add in this deep reddish-pink color mixing some AcriTonez together (Pinkadelic, Roses Are Red & 3 Sheets to the Wind) and smudging it through a circle stencil.  It didn't turn out like I hoped, but I added some water and dabbed it with a paper towel and it turned out okay.  I love that deep color, and it matched the circles & stickers perfectly!

I did do a bit of machine stitching here.  I used a few strips of the Jane Davenport washi tape down here at the bottom and added a Bella Blvd sticker.

I also embellished with some older Simple Stories stickers.  I think this blue may be my favorite color!

I hope this inspires you to be inspired by your papers or embellishments.  Try creating a layout "from scratch" and build your own background.  Shimmerz are perfect for that, and there are so many colors to choose from!

Here's my process video if you'd like to see how I created this.

Thanks so much for stopping by!!

Coloringz--Pink Stilettos, No Yoking, Heidi Ho Blue, Night Moves

Grateful | Adrienne Alvis

Hey, everyone! I had a great photo of me and my kiddos that was taken this past Mother's Day that I couldn't wait to scrap!

To begin, I used some Dazzlerz in Red-iculous and a heart stencil from my stash to create the slightly shimmering textured hearts on my background paper.

Next, I used the colors in the photo for my color scheme inspiration and chose some Coloringz spray inks from Shimmerz in Oh Say Can U Sea, Night Moves, and Mamma Sings the Blues to add some mist to my layout. I just lightly sprayed the Oh Say Can U Sea Coloringz spray paint on top of the texture paste once it was dry.

I added ink splatters in the Night Moves, a gorgeous matte black, and some in Mamma Sings the Blues for an added cool tone. I embellished my layout using some gold puffy hearts and black accents to coordinate with my overall color scheme.

I love how the hearts just pop off of the page, don't you? Thanks for stopping by today! I hope the rest of your week is lovely!

Today is Full of Possibilities by Astrid

Hello Shimmerz friends, thanks for dropping in! Today I have a tag card to share with you:
The outside was created by adding texture paste through various stencils, a thick layer of gesso and then adding colour with a combination of Distress Oxides and Shimmerz, using the following products:
Coloringz: No Yoking
Vibez Palm Reader
Vibez Jeni B Bleu
InkLingz : Tarnished Treasure
I love how the shimmering sprays work together with the Oxide Inks and how they puddle and pool in between the textures created with the texture paste.
Here is the inside of the card:
The die cuts on the tags where partly coloured with the sprays as well, the stencilling in the background was done with the Tarnished Treasure paint and a blending tool. I love the subtle shimmer it gives....

Well, that's it for today, thanks for your visit like always! And don't forget our incentives programme:
