..:: outside love ::..

Hi friends! I am up on the {a flair for buttons} blog with a layout using several flair buttons and a bunch of Shimmerz Paints!  Here's my layout:


This is one of those times that I started with the flair. I knew they matched these pictures perfectly, so I grabbed them and printed off my photos.


You may recognize that gorgeous Flutterby cut file! If you remember, I had cut them too small the first time, but I saved them because I knew I would use them. There were sitting there on my desk so I just had to use them!



I actually started by creating a background paper using several Shimmerz Vibez mists that matched my flair. Then I used that background paper to cut butterfly shapes to go behind the cut file. Finally, I stitched with gold thread down the center. I absolutely love how these butterflies turned out! Here are the paints I used:



The flair I used are from this fair set:



I made a video of my process if that suits your fancy!





Don't forget, if you are purchasing any Shimmerz products, put my name (orange gearle) in the comments and you will get a little something extra in your order!


Thanks for stopping by and see you again soon!

..:: fly high ::..

Hi Friends! I am up on The Cut Shoppe Blog today with a layout I made using a new cut file called Flutterby. I also used a bunch of Shimmerz Paints on my background and I love how it turned out -- here is my project.


I knew I wanted to use Paige Evans' Pick Me Up collection that I had just gotten in the mail from the Paper Issues Store, so I grabbed a bunch of Shimmerz products to match the colors in the collection. I used several Creameez, an Inklings, some Vibez, and a Coloringz! For a complete list, check the comments in the process video. 


I actually cut this file twice. The first time I cut it too small -- so I cut it again. I used the larger piece for my main circle of butterflies. I cut three of the smaller butterflies out of the circle (with my scissors) and layered them on top. I love how that ended up working out!



I also made a process video, if that suits your fancy!

Thanks so much for stopping by and see you again soon!

..:: hello spring break ::..

Hi Friends! I am up on the {a flair for buttons} blog today with this layout about Spring Break!  Here's my layout:


I used the Hello Spring cut file and the Up and Down background file from The Cut Shoppe as part of my title and my background. I think that Hello Spring cut file is one of my all time favorites!


I used a BUNCH of Shimmerz Paints to add a water color look to the cut file (for a full list of Shimmerz Products used, check out the description box in the process video). I used the Dear Lizzy Stay Colorful collection for my patterned papers (purchased from Paper Issues) and I added some gold elements with thread and alphas.


This piece of flair from the Inspirational Words 1 Flair  fit the feel of the layout perfectly -- and I simply love the design. The flower and the text are perfection.


I also used these butterflies from Color Cast Designs March release. I love them. I should buy some more for sure. Here are a couple more close ups:



I also made a process video if that suits your fancy! The description box includes all of the Shimmerz Paints that I used on this project!



Thank you so much for stopping by -- and I'll see you again soon!
