Lovin’ Life (Another Layout for a Glitz Challenge!)

Hello! I’m back with another layout for the Glitz Design February Monthly Challenge. They’ve been asking us to join in with their weekly themes this month for a chance to win a Black & White prize pack – all the details can be found HERE. Hurry – there’s only a few days left to enter!

This weeks theme is ‘Die Cut Machines’. As I’ve been trying to use my Cricut Mini more often, I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to get it out again! Here’s my page for this theme…

Lovin’ Life:

You may have noticed on this layout, and on my previous Glitz challenge entry this month (the Dora Delights Layout HERE), I’ve used cardstock for my background, which isn’t something I do very often. That’s because I’ve totally run out of 12×12 sheets of Glitz paper – I use them too quick! I am dying for the new collections to reach UK stores!

However, using a sheet of dark kraft cardstock for half the page meant I had a good place to die-cut a title, and layering a yellow ombre-effect sheet of paper from the Wild & Free 6×6 Pad behind it was a fresh contrast. The ‘Lovin Life’ phrase is from the ‘When I Was A Kid’ Cricut Digital Cartridge:

After I’d die-cut my title I browsed through for other images I liked. I love the sunshine (from ‘The First Few Years’ Cricut Digital Cartridge) which is cut from another sheet of Wild & Free paper; it was fun to put a giant rhinestone (also from Wild & Free) in the centre of it! I also adhered the sunshine to the page just in the middle of the sun, so the rays can lift off the cardstock. This helps to show off the gold mist drops I added to the cardstock as I didn’t like it being too plain:

The red-stripe heart and the light-blue cloud (stuck on with 3D Foam Dots for more dimension), and the woodgrain flag beneath the journaling, are all cut with the Cricut Mini from various Glitz paper scraps.

Then I finished off the page with lots of Glitz stickers – mostly from Hello December which shows they don’t have to be used on Christmas projects! And of course there’s my usual scattering of gems plus some Waco Pearl Marker dots:

The journaling (on a journaling card from the Uncharted Waters collection) reads:

This tree swing made from a broken camping chair was perfect for you to lay back in! You were giggling so much as we pushed you back and forth. So much fun!

I love how happy and carefree my son looks in these photos! Hopefully the layout has captured that spirit.

Have you joined in the Glitz challenge? How about any other challenges lately? Whatever you are up to I hope it’s happy and carefree!
