Dora Delights (A Layout for a Glitz Design Challenge)

Hello everyone! Today I have a layout to share, which I’ve created to enter the Glitz Design challenge this week (to use Pink + Gold/Silver + Neutrals).

I always love how Glitz have a weekly theme for the projects they share, so it’s fun to join in with it too! The link list for the month is right HERE, where you can add your projects! Here’s mine…

Dora Delights:

This super-pink photo seemed the perfect one to use for this challenge. My daughter was going through a phase where she adored Dora The Explorer, so she got lots of Dora presents for her 3rd birthday, and loved them all!

I used bits from a variety of Glitz collections, including papers from Uncharted Waters, Color Me Happy, and Wild & Free, roller doodles from Raven, washi tape from Hello Friend, and Embellishments from Finnley!

I jazzed-up the edges of my white cardstock using the ‘Triangles’ and ‘Owls’ roller doodles, by stamping them with pink ink and heat embossing with American Crafts Zing ‘Metallic Gold’ and ‘Grapefruit’ powders. I also used gold glitter on an chipboard arrow to make it nice and sparkly:

The owls aren’t particularly significant for the photo, but I like how wide-eyed and innocent they look, to match how young she was:

I tried to drawn on the ‘On This Day’ sticker with a white gel pen, but it wouldn’t dry, so I wiped it off with a baby wipe and used stickers instead:

I had fun adding other embellies like the sparkly bow from Freckled Fawn and the Wood Veneer from Studio Calico too!

What do you think, will you take up the Glitz Design Challenge? Have fun if you do!

See you again soon, Jennifer x

  • I love how you incorporated the owls. I never have any layout themes that will work with cute things like this so I never know how to use them. This is a good correlation. Thanks for the idea!
