Baby G

Hi There Friends,

I am sharing with you today,
a card I made for a very special friend of mine,
who is not too far off having a baby.


I created this card using Shimmerz Coloringz 

Here are some close-ups:


In the video below, I will show you
how I created the background.


I used a Silhouette Cut File to create the title,
and I colored a chipboard 'G' using Shimmerz AcriTonez.


Another fun feature are these balloons
all handmade from paper I created.

Case File 229 - Just Be You

Hi There,

Hope you are enjoying your weekend.....
but don't they just disappear!!

Today I am sharing my interpretation of
Case File 229


I have used all the colors in the palette.

Evidence:  Clouds, Arrows and Word Stickers.

Testimony:  I have used repeat journaling.
My journaling says "this kid - is one of a kind.
this kid - wakes up every morning with a smile.
this kid - melts my heart."

I have also used the amazing sketch from The Nifty Pixel.


I have handmade the clouds and then bordered them
using paint pens in black and yellow.


I played with embossing powders on the chipboard
and I used my Typewriter for the journaling.


The word stickers gave some extra inspiration.

Here is what the Case File and Sketch look like!

You Rock - Video Tutorial using Shimmerz Paints

Hi There,

I thought I would take advantage of 
having power, while we are in the middle of a
cyclone here in Far North Queensland, Australia.

What a massive storm Cyclone Debbie is!!
But we are safe for now, that is the main thing.

With that said I wanted to share with you a layout
I created for Shimmerz Paints.
I have used loads of yummy colors
and the Fancy Pants Designs - True Friend Collection.


In the video tutorial, I show you how I created
layers using different Shimmerz Paints products:

Shimmerz Coloringz - Oh Say Can You Sea, Peachy Keen 
& Night Moves.
Shimmerz Inklingz - Tarnished Treasure.
Shimmerz Vibez - Sunset Strip & Snow Storm.
Shimmerz Paste-eez - Lava Flow
Shimmerz AcriTonez - Shimmerz Tar, Tar.

Here are some close-ups:


In the Fancy Pants Designs - True Friends Collection,
there was a multi colored triangle page.
I cut the triangles out, then cut the centres of them out.
That was you can still see the layered background through them.


Some stitching for some fun!


Add some splatters.


In the video I show you how I created the Ombre look
Chipboard.  It was super easy.

Here is the video tutorial on the Shimmerz You Tube Channel.

Case File 225 - Little Moments

Hi There,

It's time for another Case File

This time it's Case File 225.


It's all about the extra moments, when they get along!

My Evidence is:  Stars, Triangles and Wood.

My Testimony is:  Starting my journaling with an idiom.
My idiom was "Get Along Like a House on Fire"

Here are some close-ups:


That acrylic title is from Elle's Studio.


Some very cool Dusty Attic Chipboard was used in the 
making of this layout.


For the background I used 

Here is what the Case File looks like:
